Just downloaded Firefox a day ago; since a friend told me that its better than Edge. It seemed fine at first and then went and looked at task manager. It's using way more memory than Edge. Firefox has 19 separate tasks running totaling to ~1,500 MB. I need to know what I can do to lower it. My friend made it sound like Firefox was way less memory intensive. I don't even keep 10 tabs open at a time. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello; I am trying to create a group email/mailing list. All of the contacts exist in my address book. When at the "to" line in email header nothing transfers. I tried to make a "new list" but it only offers space for 6; I need 10.

I need a solution to setting-up a group email which will be needed frequently. I followed the instructions on the Mozilla help page but it has content which doesn't mesh with Thunderbird (latest version) such as there being no "mail groups" when going file > new > ???? I have done this successfully on Outlook and Safari, but no luck on Thunderbird.

Thanks in advance.

Hello. How can I choice (or modify) de background color for a selected text, or for new text writing? In the formatting menu bar in the "write" window, the icon for selecting the text color works well, but the icon for selecting background color acts on the whole page, not on the selected text. Thunderbird 115.8.0 (64 bits) on Windows 7 Pro. Thank you for your help.

I'm trying Firefox again after many years in the Edgy wilderness. In Firefox in Windows, you used to be able to specify where your bookmarks were located. I store all my files (documents, spreadsheets, etc) in a complex structure on my C drive and, ideally, I should be able to store my Firefox bookmarks in the same structure. It just doesn't make sense to store the bookmarks in a separate location. I'm pretty sure you used to be able to do this by specifying the root of the bookmarks structure as c:/Documents, but I can't see how to do it in the current version.

Example of what i want to do:

I'm browsing Website and i click and open a link. Examples:

https://Website.com/P/-this-site-doesnt-exist--68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-this-is-also-an-example--34846.html


I want Firefox to automatically delete "-this-site-doesnt-exist-" or "-this-is-also-an-example-" whenever i open any of them. So opening them would instead open:

https://Website.com/P/-68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-34846.html

Can this be done?

I have a domain of my business name thus the mails sent to me are arriving to the hosting company of my domain. However since the space they give is limited to 100MB I divert the emails to my gmail account (xxx@gmail.com). it was ok for years however recently gmail added SPF and DKIM protocols which my host doesn't have resulting that senders who send me an email to my domain email receive error messages from gmail. How do I continue to keep my business email and at the same time use gmail ?

I'm not sure where to put this post. Sorry.

I don't have a lot of internal hard drive space and want to have Thunderbird store emails to an external hard drive. So, I have a few questions about this.

Q1: How do I do this? I saw a procedure on a non-Mozilla site and it seemed questionable to me. So I thought it would be best to get the procedure from here

Q2: When I move the files (not copying them) will this impact the emails online (Gmail and Yahoo)? I don't want to accidentally delete them from the server

Q3: I am concerned about the following scenario: I tell Thunderbird to use the external drive. Thunderbird starts to download emails to the external drive. What happens to the emails that are on the internal drive? does Thunderbird move them to the external drive? Or will I have to move them manually? Can I safely move email folders on top of folders of the same name without messing anything up? (I'm concerned that Thunderbird would not know that a previously downloaded folder exists and would start to download it in the new spot. So when I move the folders from the old spot to the new spot, it would overlay the new copy and I don't want that to mess anything up)

I hope my questions make sense. I'm not always clear about how I ask things

I just updated Thunderbird. So, I'm running the latest version. I'm using Windows 10 (old computer)

Thank you MistWing

Hi there,

I accidentally changed my view to card view (at least I think it was me...) by clicking on a button on the quicksearch bar. Working quickly (to quick...) I don't know what happened, but the button was not there anymore and I cannot change back to table view anymore.

I really need table view! I manage hundreds of emails and need to be able to sort them quickly by clicking column headers.

The preset zoom level for the messages is way too low. ... So I always have to use 'Ctrl + + ' after the start of Thunderbird to be able to reed HTML-messages.

For example the mozilla.org-messages use only 1/3 of the available space (when shown in HTML). ... see screenshot below.

How can I manually set a higher default zoom level OR make Thunderbird remember the last used zoom level? ... , like other email-clients do.

What I tried so far: 1. Increasing font sizes for 'Latin' and 'Other Writing Systems' leads to horrible results. ... also visible in screenshot 2. In config editor, available at settings>general, increasing 'zoom.minpercent'. ... but this zoom the whole UI.
