I recently updated Thunderbird to 101. from a much earlier version, and of course it destroyed all my custom settings. I found most of the addons I had previously were no longer valid. I managed to get a lot of the previous functionality back with settings and other addons, but one still has me stumped. When I bring a message up, I have it set to fully occupy the screen. There are some buttons at the top of the message header I was able to get working, like Reply, Forward, and Delete. But 2 that I use (or use to use) a lot are the Next message, and Previous message buttons. I can't seem to find any way to get them going again. Is there some way to get a link button, or icon for these in the message header?

Hi, Quite recently, my main INBOX (unified folders) does not have the incoming counter working. It used to pick up everything from all addresses. I have obviously done something to make this happen, but I don't recall touching anything ! When things are running ok, I just leave 'em alone. Coincidentally I'm sure, but it started around my last 'update'. Any ideas please ?

I cannot disable google document viewer in Google Drive. Every time I go to open a recently downloaded PDFs in Google Drive, it invokes Document Viewer unless I specifically right click and tell it to open with Acrobat. I have disabled everything thing I know in both Chrome and Firefox, cleared the caches, rebooted, and the default behavior persists. Worse, the Document Viewer REQUIRES a complicated, infuriating sign in process that has only worked ONCE in dozens of sign in attempts. Please help with this.

I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

I noticed in my wife's identity that "share" from the top file menu does NOT bring up the options for (Mac 11.6.5) to send an email or message, etc. I know it works from my identity w. same computer/settings. It used to work all the time on her identity, (and does so w.o issue using her Safari), but I don't recall an update.

   It also is obnoxious as all the 'share' brings up is the stock Mac "extensions' options, of which mail, messages are grey scaled out (as is iCloud), with no padlock or way to make them clickable/check or uncheck!   I have run safe mode, disabled extensions from the top bar, but have no idea how to make the "share" share!!!  It does work if we just highlight the page address and post it into macmail (14.0).  These permission things have no clear way to reset them for Firefox...i.e my calling up Mac support would probably be useless.

One aspect of Firefox I value is the ability to customize headers and footers on printed webpages. This ability is important for my work.

I customized the headers and footers in the about:config interface according to advice posted [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1323433|here].

Recently, these settings don't take effect when I print webpages to pdf. I've triple checked that the settings are correct, but every time I print, the header and footer remain in the Firefox default configuration. Inexplicably, my preferred settings do take effect if I set the destination to "Fax." All other destinations don't work.

Is there any way to make these settings work again? Sadly, this might be a dealbreaker for me if not.

Is there any way to reorder the URL bar back to how it used to be in older versions of firefox?

It doesn't make any sense to prioritise google search over bookmarks.

Is it possible to go to the older style where search is at the bottom and only becomes the priority match when nothing else can be found.

"Search suggestions" are disabled. Autofill is also disabled. The problem also occurs on a fresh install inside a VM, so I doubt it has anything to do with userchrome/about:config

Thanks.

Hi I'm using Firefox to open PDF files from a network directory. The reason is that it's probably the best PDF manager I can find.

  • What I wanted to do was have an option to open the file in a native viewer such as Adobe, this way look at 2 parts of the document at the same time.

At the same time keep it in Firefox.

Is there a setting to do this or an add-on. The add-ons I've seen are meant to open directly to Adobe from a web link I think.

Hi, I'm wanting to add QANTAS Shopping Points-Prompter to my add-ons. It says that it is available for Firefox but each time I try I get 'Oops, we can't find that page'. I've been liaising with QANTAS and they say there is no issue at their end, and I have downloaded it with other programs i.e. Chrome. Can you assist me please as I would prefer to use Firefox but that won't be possible if I can't get this add-on.

Let's use password manager as an example:

  1. Open extension
  2. Search entry
  3. Copy username
  4. CMD+Tab into another application
  5. Paste username
  6. Open Firefox back
  7. Copy password
  8. Switch to another app and paste password too
  9. Optionally return for TOTP code

Problem is step 4 breaks the whole process - when you perform CMD+Tab, extension window is closed. This behavior is consistent, but doesn't appear in other browsers. Is there any hidden setting perhaps? Searching lead to absolutely no results.

Dear Sirs, I handle 3 mail account via Thunderbird. All are shown in folder list on the left side.

1. Often I search in my Mails for subject, text, receiver, .... I can see a list of Mails, also a possibilty to distinguish between folders or contacts. see attachment "search-result.png" But I can't see all the mail-accounts and folder, where the mail is placed. e.g. "posteingang/inbox" exist for each mail-account. Is there an addon I can install to see the exact placement of the mail (mail-account/folder) in the list ?

2. Opening Thunderbird I can see all folders from each mail-account. see attachment "ordner.png" Its possible to shift Mails between the mail-accounts and folders. In case I search for mails, this is not visible I would like to move mails from one mail account (search result) into folder another mail-account. Is there possibility to make more visible, all mail-account and folder structure also in the results of search ? see attachment "search-result.png" In which way I can easily move the "found-mails" into other folder/mail-accounts ?

3. Is it possible to show als mail-account in search list ("Ablageort") ? see attachment "search-visible-folder.png"

thanks in advance bye
