I can't stop Thunderbird 102.3. threading all messages. I want threading only as an option. I've tried 'untick' on Menu>View >Threading>All, but it won't untick.

I had many repeated messages that TB couldn't be updated, but I have installed 102.3.0 and it seems to work in all other respects.

I'm wondering where the buttons for extensions/add-ons have their locations stored? I.e. I might have a tab-renamer extension button on one row, and firefox relay, privacy mode, and adblocker on another row. Obviously what row and what positions in the row the buttons occupy(relative index perhaps) are stored, but where?

I am able to find the mailto setting easily. However, there are no clients listed to choose from, no gmail, yahoo, nothing. If I click "choose other" I'm expected to choose an application from my computer. I just want to be able to click a mailto link and have it go out through a new tab via my existing, free, yahoo mail account.

Hi

My Thunderbird email client updated a couple of days ago to v78.4.0. At the top right of the email body pane where the tabs such as 'Reply' 'Forward' 'Junk' etc are, "More" (actions) has now appeared to the right of the 'Delete' button, which was previously at the far right. This is a real pain as I have been using Thunderbird for so long, clicking the far right button to delete an email is automatic without me even having to look. Now, instead of getting the 'Delete' action, I keep getting this "More actions" drop down. I'm sure this happened once before a long time ago, and I was able to either move or hide the tab to put 'Delete' back where it belongs at the far right. However, this time, I can't find any way to get access to dragging the buttons around. Anybody know if I can still do this, and if so how, as it is irritating the living hell out of me ... ? >:-\

Thanks

What in the world did they do with the new update??

All my accounts & folders that use to fit in about 80% of the full height of my folder pane now takes up 120% or more. That means I'm constantly scrolling up/down to get from my first email account to the storage folders near the bottom!!

((My screen res is 1920x1200 and I use Thunderbird at full screen height, and about 1/3 of the width.))


WHY did this get changed??? and

HOW do I get the old spacing back???

Hi Community, I am using TB on macOS 78.5.1 on macOS and I want to disable the ENTER key in the message list pane. The best if it doesn't do anything, but if it could do anything different than open messages in new tab I could consider it an option. Any suggestions? Add-ons like tbkeys and likes don't seem to be working.

Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

Hello,

I have a new issue with Firefox that began after a routine, small update to my Mac OS (Catalina 10.15.7). Please refer to the images provided, showing a normal view of a website in Chrome vs what I am seeing in Firefox.

  • Link colors are being overwritten by some default blue and purple
  • Graphical interface elements, such as the line underneath "All" in the navbar, do not appear
  • Black outlines are appearing where they do not normally, and elements that would be in a light gray are now black, etc

These issues are only limited to my Firefox browser and do not occur in other browsers I have installed. I have performed the Refresh Firefox function, and all of these issues are persisting. In things like Gmail, these black lines and flat/missing GUI elements essentially render it unusable.

I'm desperate for a solution.

Forever you've been apply to type anything into the Google search bar on the home screen, but not anymore.

Now whateveryou type automatically appear up in the tab line with https// infront of it , then of course it comes back with ...cannot find that web address !!

I'm not looking for a web address, i'm searching a subject matter..

This change is SO annoying I'm now seriously thinking of dumping my much loved Firefox for something which works better.

Why isn't there the 'option' to do search without it 'assuming' you're looking for a web address ?


So Annoying and frustrating, whoever dreamt this idea up....?

I use TB 13, believe it or not. Why? B/c I despise change -- it's streamlined, efficient, perfect. Now the pure evil known as Gmail is blocking me from downloading my messages. I hear I need to upgrade to at least TB 68 to use OAuth and surmount this problem. When I got my new comp I tried to get the new TB but it seemed so unorganized/complicated and as if it didn't function like TB13 -- the absolutely crucial and most important key function being: No need to be online to do anything. I can write a new message, save it, send it later. I can download messages when I feel like it. Read them offline. Reply to them offline. Connect when I want to and send the messages. Is this still possible with TB 68+? Create folders, again offline. I do not want to depend on being online for absolutely anything, except to send and receive messages. Can someone tell me if this is still possible using new versions of TB?

Hello,

I am running Firefox v101.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux (Pop!_OS, installed as a flatpak). I am using the default system theme in dark mode, though switching to the Firefox dark theme or other themes does not change anything. When I allow the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, etc.) to be present, the browser tabs on the next line are aligned correctly, going all of the way to the left. When I uncheck the Menu Bar, however, a gap appears to the left of the tabs. I have not seen this behavior on Firefox in other environments (Debian, RHEL, Windows), and I'm wondering if there's a way I can remove that gap. I have attached screenshots showing how the tabs are aligned with and without the Menu Bar.

Thanks so much!

I am using Ancestry.com - and Firefox keeps trying to autofill fields it has no business with or understanding of. While autofill is handy at times, it's a downright nuisance - making my research way more tedious because I have to continually erase its autofilled data as erroneous. Is there a simple and temporary way to stop autofill?
