Very disappointed that there is still no 'fix' for this far too large Message List Pane issue.

I neither want nor need to see 10 emails listed while I can hardly read the email below! Loads of people have complained about it and we have had three updates since SuperNova, but no fix for this simple matter.

Actually, it doesn't need 'fixed' - we just have to go back to the settings as they were. Help!

I have been trying to get the Add-on "sponsorblock" on Firefox for Android. However when I check the Add-on page for it, it tells me that I need a more updated version of Firefox. I have checked multiple times, and confirmed that I am already on the newest version and there are no updates for me to get. Is this add-on no longer supported on the Android version of this browser, or is there some other issue?

With the latest update domain guessing is no longer working. I like just typing the name of the website and having Firefox add the prefix (https) and suffix (.com, org, etc. so I can move aorund the web just a little faster. The setting I used to turn it on is no longer in the about:config menu. Is there a way to get this back? For example, I was able to type in Amazon and the amazon.com website would automatically open in the tab. Now I get this

Hello! Before I updated Thunderbird yesterday, the card view of emails took 2 lines: - one line for sender and date - one line for the text preview and a star

But since I updated yesterday, the cards now take approximately 3 lines, the star and text being at different levels. I did not find any setting to revert that change. It kinda feels like a CSS bug since I don't understand why someone would want to lose that much space. Any way to fix it?

Thanks in advance

Hello,

I'm using Thunderbird since long time and I always configured it to do not thread messages. Now with the latest upgrade to 115.4.1 (32-bit) I see that the view in the main window is still with no thread (and I have an option do enable/disable such mode).

However when I do a search the list of resulting messages is threaded. The issue is that when I double click on one of them, multiple windows are opened, this is not only inconvenient (I have to close them one by one) but in some cases also cause cause performance issue, TB itself reports a warning "Opening 19 messages may be slow. Continue?".

How can I disable the threaded view in the search results ?

Thanks and best regards.

Message list header no more shows account name. It shows only folder name. But if you have several accounts, there are several folder named Inbox, so you do not know from which account you display messages. It was a good thing to can have a look on the current account name. Is it possible to customize it?

Mailbox appears crowded. Line spacing seems closer than earlier versions. Looks cluttered, distracting.

Any way to change the actual font and/or line spacing to customize UX?

Thanks.

I have to reset my setting every time I start Thunderbird. The setting that seems to be systematically lost is the "mark messages as read on display." Incoming messages are not always in boldface so I don't realize I have new messages!! How can I fix these things. I am using a PC with Windows 10.

Recently (I am not sure what update started this) I started noticing "chevrons" in one particular folder under my inbox. How do I turn this unfeature off and get all emails as a new entry instead of the "chevron" method of hiding replies. This is very annoying and we need a way to turn this BAD idea off!

I've been upgraded to 115, like it or not, and now my list of viewed email titles will only shorten to 10 emails instead of the previous 4, which leaves very little room to view an opened email. IOW, the double arrow will only let me raise the bottom boundary to be below a list of 10 emails. How can I shorten it back to 4??

It always worked, i just alt+tab to firefox, quick spacebar and youtube video paused until few days ago, now i need to specificaly click on the video in order for it to work, other buttons work, other video websites like netflix dont have any problem. I remember new update tab opened. Why do you have to break everything? Don't know how long that show all tabs button is up there but I tried couple times to remove it and its impossible, why URL bar is also search bar? Why? everyone can but search bar whenever we want, even right next to it, who thinks of this bullshit? Instead of being user friendly you put useless shit into it making it work like a my 16 bit PC when people expect it to run smoothly and quickly.

I want set my new tab page to open a local file. The same local file is also used for my home page. Until recently, I used the new tab extension to do this, however that stopped working.

There are many existing posts out there regarding this, so it seems it is a desired feature. However, none of the posts are applicable to the latest configuration 119.0 (October 2023).

Is there a way to force the new tab to open a local file? Or open the home page (which is also a local file)?

Windows 11 Pro, Firefox 119.0 (64-bit)

Any way not have a history or automatically prune the history on Android? Without deleting all other data?

What I want is: 1. History should either not be saved, or alternatively auto-deleted after a certain time (e.g. only keep history of the past hour), or as a last resort get deleted when closing the browser. 2. I want to keep the ability to restore recently closed tabs. I realize this is a bit in conflict to not having a history, but just remembering the last few closed tabs would be enough, or all tabs closed in the last few minutes. 3. When I restart the browser (after pressing "Quit"), I want it to restore my previously open tabs 4. When I restart the browser (after pressing "Quit"), I want to keep cookies and logins (i.e. not get logged out everywhere, and have the cookie dialogues after restarting the browser). 5. Not super important, but ideally I want to keep my saved favicons/website logos in the bookmarks and on the new tab page after a restart.

So basically I just want to way for the history to be empty or automatically pruned, without sanitizing any other data on exit or browsing in a kind of permanent private mode.

I haven't yet found the correct configuration to do this. If there is an extension or about:config option for doing this, please also let me know (I'm happy to switch to Firefox Beta or Fennec F-Droid which have full extension support and expose about:config functionality.)

Thank you in advance!

My spam folders no longer appear grouped in the "grouped folders" view in TB 115.4.1. I guess this has to do with the different naming (or handling) of this type of folder by the mail providers, similarly to "trash/deleted". In my case, only 2 spam folders from 9 accounts are currently grouped. It would be nice to have an option to manually tell TB which folder it is, like K9-Mail does.

When pressing the up arrow key with text in the URL bar, the bottom suggestion is selected, rather than returning the text cursor to the beginning. It used to place the insertion point at the very beginning of whatever text was in there, and then another up arrow press would select the bottom suggestion, but now it instantly wraps to the very bottom selection. It's quite frustrating when trying to modify a search query - now you either have to hold the left arrow key, or accurately click with the mouse

For instance, say I type "cloud" in the URL box, but figure "storm cloud" would be a better search. I can't just press the up arrow to add "storm ", because pressing the up arrow once now just replaces the entire line of text with "https://soundcloud.com/", completely ruining my search. I'm pretty sure this was recently changed with an update. Is there any hope of changing it back?

Hi everyone. I am a Thunderbird user since it was first introduced way back when... I just migrated all my info from my trusty Windows 7 to a new Windows 10 machine and installed the latest version of Tbird. I have several accounts in my Tbird list. None of them are set to automatically download emails from the server. In my previous Tbird version, I used to be able to click on the name of an account and then (at the top of the screen) "Get messages" and it would only get messages for that particular account. Now it downloads the emails for all my accounts which I do not want. How can I change it to only get messages for the account I have clicked on in the accounts list ?

My second question concerns the font and size of the messages in the right hand pane. i.e. when I click on a particular account's "Inbox" on the left, I see a list of the emails received on the right, but the font is too small and is not the font I used to have on my Windows 7 (Arial). I have played around with the Windows settings but it has not changed anything in Tbird. So how do I change the display font and size in Tbird ? (NOT the font used to write emails)
