Hello there, I feel a little embarrassed to ask this, because I feel like this should be trivial to do. I've looked through the settings quite thoroughly. By default firefox opens up all the tabs from the previous session, and lazy loads them. I would like it so that it no longer does this. That it just always opens a single new tab. Irrespective of whether firefox closed, or I shut down my computer while it was still open. Is there a way to do this? General > Start-up > Restore previous session, is already unchecked. Thank you very much, Sashin

Firefox has somehow been set to use Alt +Space as a search prompt; see image. I'm not sure how I did this but would like to get Alt + Space back to windows default, which is to control a window Size, Move, Exit, etc. I've tried it with AddOns disabled. Any ideas please?

I have it so the bookmarks toolbar only shows up on a new tab, and my new tab page is the Firefox Home page. For a few days when I opened a new tab, the Bookmarks Toolbar showed my bookmarks + folders, but now when I open a new tab, the Bookmarks Toolbar is empty. My bookmarks still exist, they just don't show up.

When I am trying to type in a web address the Firefox browser tries to "guess" what website I want to visit by auto-filling. This is sometimes useful, but most of the time it guesses wrong or takes me to a webpage when I wanted to search. Currently I am trying to sign into one of my Wordpress and Firefox will NOT let me type /wp-login.php at the end of the URL it keeps redirecting me to another page on my website no matter what I do. Is there any way to just disable this "feature" because I swear I'm about to switch to Opera as this is driving me bonkers. (I will never switch to Chrome, don't worry.)

All of a sudden after updating to FF 85.0(64-bit), whenever I open a new tab, a warning message of some sorts opens up right below the address bar, is displayed for less than a second and then goes away. I am guessing it is yet another "Hey dumb ass you are not using FF the way we think you should be using it. Get with the program!" type message but it does not even stay on the screen long enough to read whatever the heck it is. What is this this silly annoying message and how do I turn it of permanently?

Greetings all, Is there a way to change the margins of viewed markdown files by going into, for example, about:config or another way? Would this or some other commands allow me to change the left and right margins?

I would like to change (widen primarily) the margins of markdown files when I view them on my Firefox browser. I use a lot of Markdown, for writing, scientific work (RMarkdown), and note-taking. I am currently using a Markdown text editor (Abricotine, not that this should matter) that simply calls up Firefox and sends the text/markdown to the screen. However, when I view the .md files the margins seem very small to me.

Cheers,

Display fonts in emails received are too small

My husband & I both have Thunderbird on Windows 10. I have set the fonts to be large (24 pt) for both composition and display, but while both things work on my PC, only the composition part works on his. I am attaching a JPEG showing the problem. The text is large when typed, but much smaller when the message is received. I have also attached a JPEG showing the current advanced settings for fonts on both PCs.

 I thought this might be related not to fonts but to a setting in View--but I played around with those and nothing changed: the type in the messages received is still much smaller than in the messages he writes.  It is set to Classic view, message body Original HTML.
 His Windows 10 display is set to custom scaling of 110%, which doesn't seem to make any difference.
 Is there some other setting I should try to adjust?
 

Many thanks for any suggestions!

I am disabled and cannot type, and colleges 100% online this year because of CovId 19. When I tried to download the add-on for Dragon naturally speaking the program I use to write Foxfire says that it appears to be corrupted and will not allow me to download it. I know it's not corrupted because I have downloaded it from the same site for chrome. Can anybody tell me how to get around this problem? My sincerest thanks Kevin Arthur Cleveland

I have multiple email addresses I'm managing through Thunderbird. When people send event invites to my main email address, the replies I send to them come from a different account, and I can't figure out why. Here's what I mean:

Step 1: somebody sends me a calendar invite to my me@janedoe.com email address. Step 2: I click "accept" and "I want to send an email response now." Step 3: I check my sent folder, and see that the reply was sent from facebookthrowaway@janedoe.com.

I've scoured my settings and have no idea how to fix this - any ideas? This makes me look incredibly unprofessional, especially since I'm currently looking for a new job and many of these invites are for phone interviews... :(

Thank you so much!

I have several email accounts and the Filters run as expected except for 1 email account. All my accounts move some emails to local folders based on subject filter. I have all filters set up like this: Filter Name: To My Local Folder Name Apply Filter when: Manually Run Getting New EMail: Filter before Junk Classification Archiving (this one I think I can remove but it's On)

Match any of the following Subject -> Contains -> Word1 Subject -> Contains -> Word2 Subject -> Contains -> Word3

Preform these actions: Move Message to -> My Folder on Local Folders


So, all email accounts work when email arrives in inbox and Filter Log... logs the move. Except for one, email arrives and nothing (Filter Log... empty). Clicking Run Now... it moves the email as expected and Filter Logs... logs the move.

Freaking weird. I'm running version 78.6.0 (64-bit) debian. The only think I can think of is that this specific email account used to be another altogether different email account (no message filters on it). When I dropped that old email account and created this new one I did not delete the thunderbird account and created a new one... I just changed / renamed all the settings.

Any help would be appreciated.
