My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

After the update that changed the bookmarks menu spacing in the most unhelpful way, I have reduced this stupid double padding between the folders with a hack - an now with the current update to 91.0.2 - it is back on!!???

Whose idiotic idea it was without giving us the OPTION of single OR double padding??

Why do we have to look online for the hacks and workarounds to remove this most idiotic and controlling change??

Please bring the single padding back NOW or I will completely switch to Chrome or simply will stop updating firefox!

You will NOT control how many folders and bookmarks I can see in my top menu bookmarks - and this idiotic double padding has removed half of them from my menu!!!

Can I Decrease White Space (Padding) Between Bookmark Items in FF89?

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

Thunderbird 91 extensions don't load

When TB recently updated from 78.14.0 (64 bit) to 91.2.0 (64bit), all my extensions did not load. I reviewed and verified they are compatible with 91. Toggling the enable/disable in add-ons manager did nothing although some mysteriously did get disabled. Restarting TB from scratch had no impact. (I note that closing TB tends to cause a crash.)

I was able to get the most extensions to function if I re-installed them into TB but the minute I closed TB and restarted, they all went away again.

I note that clicking on "Check for Updates" causes an "Updating add-ons" message to appear.....forever.

What gives? This is only slightly less painful than the transition to 78.....argh!

FFox 92 update today. Menu spacing went to double. No shock there. Found the CSS code below for UserChrome.css and set it up.

EX. menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {

 padding-block: 4px !important;

}

root {
 --arrowpanel -menuitem -padding: 4px 8px !important;

}

Here's the issue: I want it tighter than 4px. So, I set it down to 2px... eventually dropping it to all 0px settings.

EX: menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {

 padding-block: 0px !important;

}

root {
 --arrowpanel -menuitem -padding: 0px 0px !important;

}

But, it doesn't get any smaller than the above 4/8px set up. Bug? Perhaps there's another CSS setting to be tweaked for V 92? I do not have any other CSS for these items elsewhere in my UserChrome file.

I have been trying to figure out a way to change the font sizes in Thunderbird 78.4.3. None of the "help" works. Font changing extensions are out of date. Help threads point to menu items that aren't there. Can't even find the "config.editor". My eyes just can't handle the small fonts anymore.What can I do?

A mess! Every day the customized toolbar disappears. And I need to customize again .... This has been going on for some versions (current 84.0.1) And even if you copy the xulstore.json folder and the entire extensions folder to the profile folder, it doesn't work. Every time I quit Firefox and open it again, I lost all the customization of the toolbar ... I've seen all the posts on support, and nothing solves me ... What can I do? One of the reasons for not abandoning Firefox is its ability to customize with extensions, etc. But everything is lost .... every day !! w10 x 64, Home

We have multiple email accounts on an email hosting service. Now using Thunderbird 91.0.3, it doesn't seem to like multiple outgoing servers. TB wants to keep using the previous email name(s) outgoing, i.e. "me@mydomain.com" for the next entry. So even though I add an smtp server "you@mydomain.com" TB will automatically make it "me@mydomain. Then in the recipients email, it will show the correct sender email addy, but under correspondents it has the wrong info.

The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?
