Hello,

I need your help: how can I set navigation bar without any item (hide all items of this bar)? I need that this bar appears but empty. The reason is that I want to restrict options in Firefox (for all users) but let it be allowed open windows pop-up.

I got remove the menu button that is to the right of the whole (hamburger type), the forward and backward buttons that are to the left of the whole (which are the arrows to the right and to the left), the detention (which is the cross), etc. I did this with commands in userChrome.css file

But what I can't hide is the item where the url's are placed (search box). I just need to hide the search box. I wrote " #nav-bar { visibility: collapse !important ; } " in userChrome.css , and then all navigation bar is hidden but don't get windows of pop-up that I need them to appear.

The version of Firefox that I have is 108.0.1 (64 bits).

Could you help me, please? It's a little urgent. Thanks!!

As someone that uses the command line terminal a lot, I constantly find myself pressing the "tab" button on my keyboard when typing a URL in the address bar to accept the current suggestion and move to the next segment. For example:

  1. I want to go to www.example.com/segment1/segment2
  2. I'll start typing "exa" and since I visit this site a lot, Firefox helpfully completes example.com
  3. I would like to press "tab" on my keyboard to have Firefox complete example.com/ then I can type "seg" and Firefox could complete it to "example.com/segment1

I know I can do this by pressing the right arrow key, but that requires me to lift my right hand off to press it. I would like to be able to easily do this with the "tab" key which my pinky can quickly press. Pressing "tab" currently, has Firefox pick some complete url which I don't want, i.e. www.example.com/segmentA/segmentB

hello, thanks, mozilla vpn + firefox multi-account containers is very powerful.

i want to be able to open a new tab and force/lock it to use a specific container, no matter what website is opened.

for example, let's day i have firefox configured that: whenever i open 'website.com', it opens in a container named 'website' nothing surprising there.

now i open a new blank tab in a container called 'secret'

here is the behavior, current and desired current: in that tab, if i try to goto 'website.com', the tab's container will change from 'secret' to 'website' desired: in that tab, if i try to goto 'website.com', the tab's container will NOT change to 'website', the container will remain 'secret

i hope that makes sense,

I've recently joined a committee which has about thirty members. They frequently e-mail eachother, and all their addresses appear on each e-mail (all too often in the 'to' box, I have to say). I've managed to shift them all into the cc box, but I would like to be able to combine them into an address book group. I've tried copying them out of the cc box, but that doesn't seem to work (because I can't select them all simultaneously). Is there a way to do this withot having to copy each address individually into a new address book group? Regards, Tim Dawson

I'm in the process of moving from MacOS to Linux, in particular the latest LTS version of Pop!_OS. I disliked their default email client intensely, and therefore installed whichever version of Thunderbird was available from their repository. Unfortunately I do not know how to determine the version of either POP!_OS or Thunderbird, so I can't be more precise. My apologies for that. (Where *is* Pop!_OS/Thunderbird's version of Mac's "About ..." menu item anyway?!)

For those unfamiliar with POP!_OS, it's a Ubuntu derivative, and its desktop management is built on gnome 3. Its version numbers also match Ubuntu. Most of the time, instructions for Ubuntu found on the web work for Pop!_OS, at least if they are relatively recent.

I'm being plagued by pop-ups from Thunderbird notifying me of each new email received. I want them gone. Googling for instructions has given me recipes involving menu items that don't appear anywhere in the version of Thunderbird I have. In one case (only) instructions said to look somewhere else on linux; perhaps you export drastically different user interfaces on each operating system?

On the other hand, I don't get a count of unread messages associated with Thunderbird's icon in the Pop!_OS dock, and I do want that. (Is that even possible on linux?)

So two questions in one posting: 1) How can I get rid of pop-up notifications of new email messages? 2) (How) can I get a count of unread emails associated with the dock icon?

Thanks in advance for any assistance, including RTFM links.

Hi. I'm looking for a way to block message removal by the server in the IMAP protocol - the "(server) append only mode" (it should be still possible to delete/move message from Thunderbird).

Why? I see 2 main use cases:

1. The (corporate) server has message retention set globally (e.g. to 1 year) which "cannot" be changed. Users might want to keep their "important" email longer (and in addition, keep it in the same folders as before, not using the folders copy in the "Local folders" space).

2. Due to the unexpected situation - a server error, fire in a data center, a ransom attack, malicious email provider - all the email (or some of them) are removed from the server. Thunder would sync with the server removing the messages from the synchronized folder on a computer (sure, backup is good, but for the "silent action" - e.g. part of the emails deleted (or encrypted), it might take too long to detect that problem and still have a valid backup).


The are some (not perfect) workarounds, including:

  • keeping old emails in the "Local folders" - two places to search (or many if you have a folder hierarchy with the automatic filtering)
  • a separate, local IMAP server to keep an "append only" copy of the message (e.g. isync, offiline imap), possibly to be used by Thunderbird (instead of the upstream IMAP server)
  • using POP3 (with its own downsides :) )


An obvious downside of the implementation in Thunderbird - which users of that feature have to be aware - is not doing any delete/move operations on the server (e.g. with the webclient or some other IMAP client). Nevertheless, to fulfill the aforementioned requirement it doesn't seem a high cost.

Questions: 1. Is it possible to achieve in Thunderbird itself? 2. Is there any API to help implement that as an extension? 3. Have you - by any chance - tried to implement that using the third party tools (e.g. a local IMAP server which is used by TB) and can recommend any solution? 4. (Bonus) Do you think it would be an useful addition to Thunderbird?

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

Hey guys. With my previous Tbird install, subfolders had 3 different looks to them. There was a folder icon for subfolders with no unread emails, and other icon for folders with unread emails, and an other subfolder icon for a subfolder with new unread email. But the image included shows the new updated version folders I get. The subfolder "HODL" and the subfolder "Interac" look identical, though one of them contains unread emails (4) and the other one does not.

This is a very important feature for my script to work properly. I can't find where in the settings or with add-ons how to make it so.

This is likely frivolous to most of you, but extremely important to me.

How can I get subfolders with unread emails to look different?

Or maybe I could revert to the earlier version?
