When I get a response from my website (which is in Czech language), the email I receive is perfectly readable when viewed in webmail.

When downloaded in Thunderbird, however, it's a jumble of unintelligible ASCII characters. How can I solve the problem?

Regards Patrick

I recently installed some linux distributions on the raspberry pi 4 including firefox. In contrast to the same os/firefox combination running on my (10 years old) laptop pc, no widevine Content Decryption Module (CDM) addon seems to be available. This means starting of videos from respective sources after proper login does not take place. (I am sorry for the English)

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

Last week I had a problem with a Windows update and had to initiate a System Restore in order to get Windows back up and running. Everything seems fine now except for the fact that videos will no longer play. I have looked online and found various suggestions, none of which work. The videos work with Google Chrome, so the problem seems to be localised to Firefox. I am using Windows 10, and when I checked it said that I am using the latest version of Firefox.

I used to be able to double click on an image in an email and it would bring up the edit window to allow me to change the size and appearance. This seems to have stopped working. In fact it does not recognize the image at all. Even clicking once no longer selects the image to drag and resize. Any ideas why this is happening?

Hi everyone, I state that for years I have been using TB and, never, ever, I have had this problem.

I try to best describe ...

Thunderbird \ Local Folders, here is the setting (image attached) -> In practice the path local folders points to a mapped network drive.

Local folders disappear! The problem is that I don't understand the reason. If I close thunderbird, I access the mapped network drive (simply by opening the desktop shortcut), I reopen thunderbird and the folders are there again!

Can anyone tell me what caused this problem?

Is this a Windows bug? or is it some addition to some Windows configuration?

Greetings and thanks.

Currently when I click inside the Location Bar the entire string is selected/highlighted.

I don't want that, I want the old behavior where the first click positions the pointer at the place inside the string text where I clicked.

I have added these options (found in another Q):

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll false browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll true

But they don't seem to work.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 on Linux, and the option to combine Search and Location bar.

I cannot Sign.In in "Firefox Send". The funny thing is that I am logged-in in Firefox browser and that I can log-in in Firefox Send in any other browser. Only Firefox gives me a problem. I love both the browser and the service and it is annoying (and inexplicable) not to be able to sign in from Firefox. Please help. Thank you

Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is Greyed OUT when Firefox is set to Never Remeber History

In my Windows 10 Version of Firefox, when ever I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember', the option to 'Ask to save logins and passwords for websites' is greyed out.

I do not think this combination is correct, as I want set my Firefox to 'Never' remember History but at the same I do want the option that If I do setup my user-id & Password on a new website, I want Firefox to prompt me to Save or Remember Password.

On the same token, If a password is changed Firefox must prompt that password is updated in Firefox. This will not be prompted if I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember'.

The Image I am sharing is my current settings, I did not want reset it, as I then have to reload Firefox, re-do a lot of thinks, like Booksmarks etc.

My installed Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit).

If there is work around let me know the solution. Hope to hear soon.

I want to change my default search engine to Google Australia so I get more relevant result, rather than changing the URL after I have searched. Please tell me there is a way to do this! If not I'll have to change browsers because 99% of my searches are local so I have to change this all the time.
