Please be patient and digest my problem. I'm a 76 year-old, tech/Mozilla-friendly, male who has enjoyed Thunderbird, daily and for hours, for years on my now old laptop. My son installed that Thunderbird for me about 10 years ago and I enjoyed its benefits immensely. Recently I bought a new Chromebook and installed Thunderbird on it but am having problems customising it to my needs and am encountering basic problems e.g. emails are appearing on my screen far too big! CONTROL plus + or - gives me the correct size but I can't make that size permanent. For the last 3 weeks I have being sussing uTube, Google etc in my efforts to get Tb tuition, for which I am only too glad to pay for, without success. Pleae, pl;ease, please help me!

For anyone who wishes to reduce horizontal spacing between bookmark icons in the horizontal Bookmarks Toolbar across the top of Firefox window (under the address bar), here is the code to add to userChrome.css:

/* Bookmarks Toolbar icon horizontal spacing */

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:not(.subviewbutton) {

   padding: var(--bookmark-block-padding) 3px !important;

}

The default value is 4px. I changed it to 3px. You can change this number as you like.

Remember to save the css file, close and then re-open the browser to view the update.

There is also a way to play with this live if you access the Browser Toolbox: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Browser_Toolbox and access userChrome.css: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Style_Editor

Hope this saves someone the hours I spent finding this solution. Cheers!

I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)
