Firefox offers the option to "Fill login" through the context menu (see attached image) when ever in a login or password field. However I am using Bitwarden instead of the Firefox password manager and disabled saving passwords in Firefox. Is there a way to remove this "Fill login" action as it always just shows that no logins are saved?

Thanks, Mattias

Greetings,

Happy memorial day from our family to yours! Let us remember those courageously gave their lives. I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for more than a decade, on multiple Operating Systems, and this is my first post in this great community. Overall, long time Mozilla user and a fan!

Goal:

My objective is to keep only last N days of emails in order to save disk space. I would like to set up 2 gmail accounts.

Expected Behavior:

Right after setting up the email account, if I change settings from Synchronization & Storage page to download emails from only most recent N days, Thunderbird should respect that setting. Most importantly, this setting should only limit the scope of downloading emails, and under any circumstances, should not delete emails on the remote server.

Actual Behavior:

Right after setting up the email account, Thunderbird aggressively starts downloading emails regardless its size or age. If I change settings to sync most recent N days, I still see old emails. These old emails do not away - even after restating the application or even restating the computer. After referring to another post on this forum I also tried using 'Compact folder' option followed by restating the application. It did not seem to do the trick.

The question:

Given the above, I am wondering, somehow - if I changed Thunderbird's default Synchronization & Storage settings to download only most recent N days' emails, would it help me achieve my goal? If it would, I would like to know how.

FWIW - I might be using Mozilla Thunderbird 68.8.1 (32-bit) portable, in Windows 7.

P.S. : I am open to any approach that helps me achieve my goal.

I want to do not see this small button on each tab in Firefox. Is it possible without addons? I remember that in the past there was an option in about:config for that purpose but I failed to find it now and do not remember how it is called. I don't need this close-button because I managed to close my tabs using various other ways: by Escape, by double left mouse click to a tab, by double right click on web page (everything using AutoHotkey).

How can I control notifications per folder?

I'm using Thunderbird 68.8.1 on a Mac (Macos 10.13.6 and 10.14), and I've been a Thunderbird user for at least 10 years - and at some point during that time, I started getting notifications on ALL folders, instead of just the Inbox, which is what I want. I know Thunderbird uses Notification center on a Mac for a while now, but the only control there is whether I want Thunderbird notifications or not. I definitely WANT them, but ONLY for Inbox.

To be clear, on the IMAP server there's a procmail instance which sorts incoming folders, like:

- Inbox (the default) - kids - mailing_list_1 - mailing_list_2

...etc. Is there ANY control so that I get notifications, but ONLY for Inbox? I can't for the life of me find it, so any help is appreciated. I get a ton of mail in these inboxes, so the alerts get very distracting.

Thanks!

Pocket button disappeared in the three-dots menu. It is replaced by a Bluetooth button.

Now, I searched for solutions obviously. However, the about:config page has not one listing with the word 'pocket' in it, so I can't just reactivate it.

I'm would like this function back and I was wondering whether one of you could help me!

hello, I am a total unexperienced with this whole digital chaos.

Let me start beginning, i changed a few months ago from chrome to edge, at least i tried, only a few minutes said microsoft and everthing would be the same but in this special browser for Windows 10 special. I started at 16.00, only 5 minutes microsoft said, and ended at 00.4 in the morning later. From about 60 passwords i got back 5, from porn sites. Any way there was more damage made then in 5 minutes away from edge. Then you have to call a so called it student company hoe comes at your home now they also use teamviewer. And after the kid has to find out all kinds of trouble so after 3 hours i was back with chrome and 100 euros gone. I have two questions. In windows you can choose your browser, and when i want firefox i se that there are 2 firefox . And they are different, i think one has to go, cause my vpn doesnt works aigaints one and one says you dont use firefox as default brser and one of the 2 says the opposit. I am sure that one of the two has to go or am i paranoid thanks to the bullshit that 70% of the common people also got after these every time chanching invite the most stupid and useless nonses. Well i am sure that you will have no idea what i mean cause thats another bad change, you talk with machines, nobody can help me with instalating gpwin , pgp., And also, i have so many questions that it would take 1 week to explain by writing. Why cant we talk with people anymore, exccept apple i heard. i am thinkgen to by my next lap there, i have an i pad that never has problems and this shit from microsoft en these these fuckbook ang google is greatest monster. Have a nice day and i see if i ever get answer. that would be a wonder. Dont give me links with days studiying cause i dont want to learn, i am totaly not intersted in it, but i am forced by society. Regards xxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx x x.xxxxxxxx@ xxxxxx.xx Stupid phone +xxxxxxxxxxx but nobody use a phone for phonecalls but for making selfies.

I installed the Honey add-on. It's an app that will find coupon codes when you purchase online. I realized after a while that none of the codes it had were working, so basically, it's useless. I went to the add-on tab, clicked "remove" and thought that would be the last of it, however there was a small popup window for the app that wouldn't go away. Checking the help section of Firefox, I proceeded to manually uninstall the app by its code. Shut down Firefox, delete the code started up Firefox and now I have a blank pop-up window. The app is gone, I think, but I still have this popup that I can't close. If I right click on the Firefox logo in the dock, I see the open Firefox tab and a tab labeled about:blank Mozilla Firefox. I'm using a Mac with Catalina. Any suggestions?

I recently had my computers stolen and had to start from scratch. I loaded Thunderbird and apparently it is a later version than I was previously using. After migrating a backup of my profile to it, I have this horrible zebra striping in the folders pane which pretty much keeps me from being able to identify folders since every other line is light text on a light background -- I'd prefer for the background of all lines to be dark.

I found an article which included some code to put in the userChrome.css file to eliminate the striping but it was for Thunderbird 2.0 and I am currently on 68.3.1 (32-bit) (not sure how I wound up with 32 bit). I tried it but it didn't work.

Does anyone know how to change this -- I'm starting to think of looking for a different email client as this is making Thunderbird very difficult to use.
