I'd like to suppress displaying message Subject in the folder contents pane. (I'm in vertical view and would like the message contents pane to be wider. To accomplish that I'm willing to sacrifice listing the Subject in the folder contents pane. Tbird doesn't list that as a column I can select or deselect. Any ideas?

The real goal is to make the folder contents pane narrower. But it seems to not allow me to make it any narower than it is. A9(I can widen it, but that doesn't help. Is there any any to change the minimum width Thunderbird has set for that pane?

We have recently enabled background updates in our organization, however I noticed that a requirement for this to work is that Firefox needs to be run with the default profile at least once after the feature is enabled. The issue we have is that not all users are actively using Firefox and therefore they are not being updated. I realize the security flaws won't be exposed if it's not in use, but management doesn't like seeing out of date browsers. Is there a way to force auto updates on all device where Firefox isn't not being used. Background updating is working for the majority of those that do use Firefox.

Also, we do have a couple of users reporting a credential prompt when updating from 119 to 119.0.1. These same users had no issues updating from 118 to 119. I have not figured out why this is happening just yet and why only for a handful of users so far. Would anyone have an idea why that is happening?

Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

I have been watching YouTube videos on firefox android and have been clicking ful screen and landscape has been fine. Then over night a few days ago, it stopped. When I turn the phone to landscape, the video sound is playing but the video is blank, with no picture. It is fine in normal portrait just not when I click full screen when it was working.

I've cleared the cache and history, I've even unistalled Firefox and reinstalled it twice, once from the play store and once as the apk but to no avail. I have also disabled adons, tried the picture to picture, and autoplay but nothing works.

Any help to rectify and return my viewing would be appreciated.

My name is Mr. Yeo, a developer at LG Electronics’ H&A headquarters.

         ============================================================================

In the past(2022), I had ever get in touch with <kapil@mozilla.com> by email about Fenix, which is available as Open Source on Github, to include it in our product.

But now, <kapil@mozilla.com> email address is not valid any more. So I had no choice but to leave an inquiry here.

==> Question 1

 :  Can you provide contact information for a new support person to replace <kapil@mozilla.com> for cooperation between LG Electronics and Mozilla?
         ============================================================================
         ============================================================================

Our team is considering a product for Android GO devices. So we're trying to mount the Firefox app here.

Because Android GO devices are low-end products (= RAM size : 2GB) An app such as Firefox Lite is more suitable than Firefox.

However, I found out that Firefox Lite support has ended. I also found articles mentioning Firefox Focus as a replacement.

==> Question 2

 :  From Mozilla's perspective, 
    we would like to ask what method you could suggest for companies developing low-end products 
    based on the Android GO platform to install Firefox apps.
         ============================================================================

Thanks.

I am writing to seek assistance regarding a challenge I have encountered while attempting to install a custom add-on from a file.

I have followed the steps to enable the debug menu on Firefox Nightly, and I have also successfully downloaded the custom add-on in XPI format to my mobile device. However, upon navigating to the Add-ons settings, I am unable to locate the option to install the add-on from a file.

I have reviewed the official documentation and community forums for guidance, but I have not found a solution specific to my situation.

Could you kindly provide detailed instructions on how to install a custom add-on from a file on Firefox Nightly for Android? If there have been any recent changes or updates in this regard, I would greatly appreciate any information or resources you could share. Thank you for your time and assistance. I value the work Mozilla does to enhance the Firefox experience and am eager to resolve this matter.

Best regards, Saad

Every time a youtube video is placed on landscape mode on the firefox app of my android phone it becomes a single blurred image with the audio playing as normal.

Youtube seems to work fine on other browsers and I have tried all basic fixes, like deleting cache/data/reinstalling app etc. Appreciate any help.

Edit. Okay I managed to fix the issue so I'm adding the solution here in case anyone runs into this problem. Apparantly youtube playback decided to enable "ambient mode", a feature I didn't even know existed and seems to not play well with a phones resolution.

Just click the settings gear while the video is playing in landscape (mine is on the top right) and disable the "Ambient mode" feature.

Hope this helps.

I have been using Firefox for many years and I know how to use it well. However, I am currently experiencing an issue with the text and fonts on various websites, including Facebook. Even after refreshing and attempting to troubleshoot, the issue persists.

I have noticed that the font and text work normally in Firefox's troubleshooting off mode. I have even attached a photo of the issue for reference.

Please advise.

Hi

Why does Thunderbird want all my personal information.......??

I'd be MORE THAN happy to make a donation to support you guys, but I am NOT happy about all the info I have to provide - and frankly I'm bot going to be bullied into giving info I don't want to. I donate to Wikipedia and they don't ask such intrusive questions - so why do you? You say that less than 2% of TB users donate - this PROBABLY the reason why they don't...!

And the fact that there is no direct link to ask somebody ask question about this subject, is really frustrating.

Thanks

Hello! How can I highlight and view my multiple inboxes at the same time? I am coming over from Apple Mail, and I have multiple email accounts; Personal, personal work, bills and utilities, junk mail, etc. In Apple Mail, I would hold command or shift, and could highlight a couple of email inbox accounts and see all the emails together. I can not seem to find the key combination in Thunderbird. I would love to ditch Apple's eco system, but that one feature I'm still puzzled with on how to do it. The individual email accounts are setup in Thunderbird, that part is good. Just can't view them at the same time. Thank you so very much!

I can't control the FONT SIZE of the incoming emails with the new version of T'bird. Hate it!! It's ugly. Looks crowded and, as I said I can't set it so the incoming fonts are a readable size. OR the font size in the individual mail boxes... This lack of control makes it next to useless for me. I'm in my 70s and really do need the larger font sizes.

We are distributor of Firefox extension for dragon professional. ( We are self distrubutor of the extension.)

It’s ID is dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com

Now we have done some modification to the same extension, while publishing it shows error as “Duplicate add-on ID found.”

Earlier we have used same ID for the Firefox extension in the year 2018.

Currently we have opened new account with same ID “dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com” and faced the mentioned issue.

We are expected to publish our extension with the same extension id as we don’t want our existing customers get affected.

Is there any way with which extension id “dgnria_pro.firefox@nuance.com” can be deleted from backend , so that we can reuse it.

I could extract the Firefox apk from my phone and sideload this onto my quest, but I don't understand why Mozilla don't make an apk available for direct download or make Firefox available via the Meta store. The latter I can understand as it's more time an effort, but I'm at a loss regarding the direct apk availability.

Does anyone know why this is only downloadable via Google Play?
