I have spent hundreds of hours over the years trying to figure out how to hell to suggest words to the default firefox dictionaries. I don't mean weird words, words used constantly in scientific settings. It is infuriating. I am willing to take on this task if no one else is. How do I join the effort?!? I have 20 years experience at a fortune 500 company. Google is worthless these days.

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?

I have been a Thunderbird user for several years.

Please let me know how I can have 2 different versions of Thunderbird on same PC (Windows-10) ? Each version using different email accounts. What are the steps, and configuration I would need to do to accomplish this ?


My Objective: The slightly older (stable) version will be for my normal important email. The 2nd newer version will be like my test version which I will use for checking/testing upgrades to a new version. Once I have used/tested the new version on a test email account, then will upgrade the normal version. And the process will repeat.

Thank you.

As described in this question I am unable to install addons in Thunderbird: when attempting to install an addon, either via the in-app browser or via a file, a pop-up window appears for which "Add" and "Cancel" buttons do nothing (there is no way to move or remove the window without killing the process).

If I search "lemmy", I want to see that in the URL instead of the full search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. It makes it easier to copy the search query. If the query has spaces than they're written with +s in the URL. I remember months ago this ended up being the default even for pre-existing Firefox profiles, but then it was changed back.

II'm using Win 10 Pro and am having an issue with adding new FF profiles.

I have a shortcut icon in the (bottom) Win 10 taskbar. I've created new FF profiles with unique names and paths, etc. But when I open FF as one of those profiles the open window(s) "attach" to an icon / shortcut in the taskbar, even tho' that icon / shortcut has a completely different target (i.e., path for starting FF).

I don't want windows from Profile New 1 or Profile New 2 to look as if they are for Profile Icon_in_the_Taskbar.

I hope this makes sense. I've created profiles in the past and didn't run into this problem so perhaps it's me. But I also don't believe I'm doing anything different than before.

I'm having an issue with Fidelity Investments website logging me off after 5-10 minutes of inactivity. Before Fidelity's website redesign, I could go at least 30 minutes or more without having to login again. It seems now I have to login constantly.

I have contacted Fidelity, but the said it was a Firefox issue, however, I cannot find any information about this issue (or I don't know where to look).

How do I extend the time before needing to login again? Thoughts on if is this even a Firefox issue or is it Fidelity's website?

Thank you!

That is how you product worked until this week. Now, it sucks. And why does the header say that my options are controlled by my organization ? This is my private computer, belongs to me, not any organization !

Hi,

I've been using the following in userChrome.css for many years

  1. menu_close { display: -moz-box !important; }

to restore "Close Tab" in the File menu, based on cor-el's response regarding restoring menu_bookmarkAllTabs here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/799856

This stopped working some time ago and I am finally getting around to asking why.

I do have toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets set to true, and other items in userChrome.css are working.

I am using 121.0 at home and 115.0 ESR at work and see the same (i.e. no "Close Tab"), in both cases on Debian testing. I do see this menu item when using the keyboard to open the File menu.

Any idea why this no longer works?

thank you, Greg

Hi, I got a new laptop recently and ever since then I've been experiencing this problem. Websites like https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com or https://ukutabs.com offer the option to autoscroll, so that you can play your instrument without having to pause your playing and scroll further yourself. This feature hasn't been working for me ever since I got my new device and since it's various sites, I suppose the problem must be in the browser itself, I just can't figure it out. In the case of Ultimate Guitar, when I click autoscroll, it does move slightly, once, but then stops again, and you'd miss the movement if you're not paying close attention. I can switch between various speeds on this site as well, but it doesn't do anything. In case of Ukutabs, there's not even any kind of response from the site when I click the option. I tried turning on and off Firefox settings concerning autoscrolling and smooth scrolling, but nothing solved my problem.

Thank you for your time and energy, everyone!

None of my installed Add-Ons will open. This occurred after running in "Refresh Mode" to correct a different problem.

The prior problem involved not opening bookmarks in a new tab even though the config:about entry was set correctly.

Is it possible there is a config:about entry that prevents any add-on from running?

Issue 1: When using the scroll bar to browse the list of emails, it skips one email (advances too much), so when searching I sometimes cannot find that email. I tried resizing the list of emails to try to match the vertical size, but it does not seem to help.

Issue 2: I cannot customize the vertical size for the list of emails. It won't accept reducing less than about one third of the vertical size of the thunderbird window.

Issue 3: In between the list of emails and the display of the current email content, there is a large area that I find redundant. The 'From', 'To', 'Subject', 'Date' is redundant since the list of emails already show all this information. I cannot find a way to remove, minimize or compact this region. Even the list of buttons could be removed in my case since I mainly use shortcuts and anyway, they are available in the menu or when you right click on an email.
