Hi,

I am currently trying to setup my Thunderbird and all is going pretty well apart from one really sill little issue that I can't seem to get over. When I go into "Write" to create a new email I am finding that I always need to zoom the view to see what I am writing. This is not a problem with the font size. I have set my fonts correctly for both HTML and text type mails to Calibri 12pt and this is being recieved by people just fine in the correct font and size. This is just the zoom level of the emails (both to read and to create/write a new email that is too small for my resolution and screen. I don't have any special screen or resoulution and every other application looks just fine. It is only Thunderbird message pane. The iconds and menus are all fine in thunderbird too.

Every single time I go to read an email or create a new email I have to go through the song and dance of pressing CTRL+ three times to zoom up the window to an acceptable level. If I only had to do this once and if Thunderbird remembered it all would be well but I have to do it every single time I create a new email.

It is making thunderbird totally unusable for me. I saw there was an addon called AutoZoom but that is not working with my release of TB (78.1.1).

I just don't get why it would not be designed to remember the zoom level from last time - it makes not sense to me at all and I am quite exasperated.

What am I doing wrong ???

There is one other really annoying thing I wanted to ask about too. If I write some date like "5th June" in an email the "th" bit is always underlined like the spell check logic has no concept that a number with th or rd after should be treated as a data and not a spelling error. Is this fixable in my settings somehow? I am using the English (UK) Dictionary

Thanks all.

After a recent update to Thunderbird (on Windows 10) it has started rendering messages incorrectly. It seems to override HTML settings in emails and defaults everything to a standard colour scheme. This is especially noticeable when testing MailChimp emails and receiving styled email newsletters from other companies. For example, I created a MailChimp campaign with a dark background and light text with highlights and buttons in a different colour. This is now all being stripped and placed onto a white background with black text. Some elements like social shares (which were white) are now completely hidden too. I am also seeing issues with the way my email signature is displaying, as it had specific colours attributed to certain HTML (email friendly) elements. This was NOT an issue before the recent updates, so is there a way to simply view emails as they are intended (for both reading and composing)?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Halifax use a card verification process "Halifax Secure" to verify payments made with one of their cards. Using Firefox on Linux, the pop-up window opened by to perform the verification dialogue hangs when invoked from some, but not all web sites. Turning off tracking protection for the invoking site does not solve the problem, but perhaps its redirecting to another site in the popup?

Any workaround, or means of pinning down the actual cause would be appreciated. For now I'm having to switch to Chromium every time I hit this problem.

Thanks.

Thank you for your quick response.

Hi!

I use policy for customization Firefox 78.1.0esr. It is wonderful! Thank you for these possibilities.

Something wrong with Homepage URL. Set URL (internal network) for Homepage, run Firefox and looking different address. Add this URL to Additional section and URL stay not edited. ``` <key>Homepage</key> <dict> <key>URL</key> <string>https://appl-test.oebs.yandex.net:8010</string> <key>Locked</key> <true/> <key>Additional</key> <array> <string>https://appl-test.oebs.yandex.net:8010</string> </array> <key>StartPage</key> <string>homepage</string> </dict> ``` URL changing to "https://yandex.com/" Why? Maybe firefox check URL and redirect?

thunderbird - how to revert from v78 to v68~

Am on w10-64 using TB 64bit

I was eager to use new TB so I updated from ~68 to 78. It is working.

However, I have lost the functionality of my most use AddOn TagToolbar. The developer of the AddOn has updated that for v78's MailExtension version, but as New method doesn't allow adding Toolbar in main TB, which TagToolbar was doing, now that toolbar is gone and I am facing a lot of problems using the AddOn with its new system.

I tried to reinstall 68.8.1 over 78, but it doesn't allow me, saying that "some later version has updated TB and it cannot be used with 68, so asked me to create new profile, otherwise it wouldn't run. Now, all my previous mails of last 20 years are locked in there was converted to suit v78, so I cannot just create a new profile and start from zero.

So I want to revert from v78 to v68 (or other equivalent non-beta)

Please guide step by step how I can revert and then install my older version of TagToolbar.

It is bad that TB forcefully converted my data without asking me, without telling me, and now those data cannot be used in older versions. If TB had given me warning of that sort, I would have preferred to create a "copy profile" so that TB doesn't migrates me old profile, rather makes a copy and then migrates that copy to suit new version. I had not expected such unruly behaviour from you guys.

Thanks. -- Rawat

Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?
