Hi, I'm using Firefox and Nightly both updated to latest versions on Feren OS (Linux). The drop downs, option menus, bookmarks etc. all have transparent background on Nightly. Stable version has black background and white text as it should be.

I've tried userChrome.css but it doesn't work. Changing font-sizes do work which proves that Nightly looks for this file at startup. I've tried changing background on these CSS elements:

  1. main-menubar menupopup
  2. PlacesToolbarItems menupopup > hbox

My OS details are: Operating System: Feren OS 2021.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.21.5 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.82.0 Qt Version: 5.15.2 Kernel Version: 5.8.0-55-generic OS Type: 64-bit

So, since this has now happened to me a few times, I'm asking for help!  :) Thunderbird 78.11 - have used TB for many years, happily. I customarily keep several tabs open - for emails I need to reply to, at some point, or that contain something I'll come back to. This morning, of the 6 "open" tabs, 4 of them were not the emails I'd put there, but older ones totally unrelated to anything. In other words, only 2 were ones I'd put there, the other 4 (which were there last night) had "changed", somehow, to different emails. I hope I'm making sense! As I said, this has now happened a handful of times - not consistently and with no discernible pattern. Thunderbird is always open - so it's not a matter of restarting/reopening (and the tabs usually stay in place when I do that anyway). Open to suggestions - and appreciate any thoughts!

TB sent regular update invitation for TB 78.10.2 but it installed rather than updated and even generated a pop-up telling me the "old profile has been deleted". Result was I lost records of sales and over 300 emails from visitors containing update info relating to photos.

The annoying thing is when I look at the profile I can see all the old emails using notebook but cannot access them in email format.

How can I get these emails to display?

Also, same problem as lots of others. Unable to distinguish between folders with new email and folders with unread email. The Dark Blue/Black problem. I am using white background with black outlines and need to be able to change text colours to something more eye catching.

I had this problem previously and the advice given on changes to the CSS did the trick but can longer access the email.

Would welcome any suggestions.

Hey Guys,

I have here attached a screenshot of a shadertoy shader running on Firefox (left) and Chrome (right). I actually have a list of shaders I tested on both, that have Chrome working at less than 5fps but work 2-4 times faster on Firefox.

I was wondering why this is happening, and I did some research about Firefox. The only thing I came to think is that Firefox’s WebRenderer is making the glsl run faster. But I checked if it was enabled, and it was not. So I’m stuck…anyone have any suggestions?

I have multiple screens with task bars above each other. When I open firefox in full sceen ( not f11, just the full screen option that windows provides ) on the bottom screen, there seems to be a piece of firefox's top bar overlapping the task bar on the screen above.

How do I fix this? This issue has bothered me for quite a while now. The workaround seems to be to set the windows task bar color to white ( to make it less noticable ), but that doesn't solve the problem, it just makes it less visible.

Please see the screenshot. When I unfocus Firefox ( by focussing another piece of software, or none ) the white bar disappears.

I am using an offline web page as my default firefox home page and all was going well until I enabled sync. Now when I boot up firefox two things happen. It changes the address for my home page file to a folder NOT on this computer (the desk top) and won't retain the address I need for that folder.

I have just tried editing the bookmark for page. At the moment it seems to be working but I think sync is causing this issue and wonder if there is a fix for it?

Thank you.

I am not sure what to attribute the problem to. I use Earthlink - I know, I'm a sap. They had a release recently, with no warning, and its far worse than the previous version. Innumerable errors and lags. Spam handling got worse, and it wasn't great.

They might be preventing the spellcheck from working. Their own spell checker was never great, but was rendered demented in the new release. It flags every plural word as a misspell, for one instance. The code was clearly untested.

I just don't like Gmail because you can't sort anything. The fonts are thread-like - intended for the young. Not for imperfect minds. The effect is 'our way or *** you.'

Earthink's folder system is somewhat reminiscent of Outlook Express, which I loved. Since they killed it, I don't want to use Microsoft db products, lest they hold my stuff hostage one day, or leave me in the lurch.

There should be a universal format, forever readable, is one so chooses.

I just right clicked in this window, composing my plea, and the spell check is there. So my inability to access it must be another 'gift' from Earthlink, the firm with the worst designers and programmers of any I've encountered.

They have arranged to bury consumer complaints, and have concocted a way to make false claims appear in search returns. Their site is covered with 'best' badges that can't possibly be deserved, or have been given. As a customer since 1997, I feel some authority to say what I'm saying, as a witness to their devolution and ever more blatant unconcern.

If you only knew.

I'd go to Thunderbird except you withdrew support for it for a time, I think I read, which makes it untrustworthy to me.

Is there any way I can access the spell check function other than a browser input window ? I don't know if can 'force' earthlink to use it only in my compose windows, but it is running with Firefox.

Anyway, thanks for any help you can give me.

I'm trying to understand and speed up my Thunderbird backups. (Using Version 78.11.0 32-bit on Windows 10.) Presently I start TB with the shortcut

"C:\blahblah\thunderbird.exe" -profile E:\mumble\TBirdMail\ronks

and back up the folder named above.

But the folder is over 8 gigabytes and has 48,000 files and folders in it; most of it presumably duplicates what's on the IMAP server in the cloud. Plus several hundred temporary "cache" files. Just traversing it to see what has changed can take several minutes, plus copying the temporary files in the folder. Is there a straightforward way to back up only what needs to be backed up, like options and account settings and Local Folders, and skip the temporary cache files and mail on the server?

This is only a Firefox problem, and I am able to use my back button normally in other browsers.

When I click back on my mouse after I am done reading a page, rather than going back a page it just assumes that I want to autoscroll, and allows to me scroll up and down the page rather than go back. How can I fix this? Most current version of Firefox on macOS.

This also is affecting the forward button on the mouse as well, it also goes to autoscroll. Scroll wheel click functions as normal (autoscrolling).

What can I do?
