After having to refresh Firefox, all extensions are missing from my toolbar. They're still installed and function but some require tweaking options on a per page basis and it's a hassle to have to work through multiple menus when they should just be a click away. From other answers, it seems like the extenstions should be in the customise toolbar page but only the standard options are there. I've tried disabling and enabling them, as well as removing and adding them again already with no results.

How do I either get them back to the toolbar or the customise page so I can add them myself?

Emails screened straight to Trash don't count as deleted when retrieving from POP server

I screen a lot of junk mail through rules I've manually entered to a Deletable folder. It occurred to me that some especially egregious ones, I can filter them direct to trash. So far so good.

Now, I have TBird configured to leave messages on the POP server for 2 weeks I think it is, or until I delete an email. That way, if I look at email on my phone or other device I get all non-trash mail for the last two weeks, and all mail (including junk) since the last time I fetched mail to my laptop, which is the long term archival location.

Problem is, if I make a rule to filter something straight to trash, TBird doesn't identify that email as deleted when next fetching messages, so the server doesn't delete them, and they're still there clogging up my phone.

Any way around this?

English isnt my first language so sorry in the first place.

Firefox has the option to WHAT to show when you enter a LETTER in the ADRESS BAR.

You can CHOOSE what do you want to see when you type in a LETTER. I choose not to show anything from my timeline or ANYTHING ELSE except GOOGLE and DUCKDUCK And even with the settings set Firefox does not care.

Why arent the settings working?!

I upgraded to Firefox v89/64bit. Now when I open a new tab Firefox forces me to use the address bar for searches. I can't find anything in 'Settings' that will let me change this. Maybe I've missed something obvious. Is there a way to turn this 'feature' off? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

Can't add importEportToolsNG - not compatible with Thunderbird 91.0.1

I want to open an .MBOX file, and found out that Thunderbird was recommended. I downloaded it (Windows 64-bit) and then found this support page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285736) which explained that I needed importEportToolsNG.

However, when I tried to load the importEportToolsNG add-on, I got the message "importEportToolsNG could not be installed because it is not compatible with Thunderbird 91.0.1" (see attached file).

BTW, the same thing happened when I downloaded importEportToolsNG directly and then tried to add it in Thunderbird from a file. There is no reason why this should work, but I tried out of desperation.

Help! What can I do?

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8, running Windows 10 Pro

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

Hi, My Thunderbird installation has suddenly lost the ability to copy the Original message into a reply when I click the Repy button. I haven't changed any settings. See Image for Composition & Addressing settings. I did notice yesterday that I have a newer version of Thunderbird 91.1.2. Reverting to 91.1.0 made no difference. The system has also had some recent Windows Updates applied. Everything else works fine.

Since I downloaded TB 91.2.0, when I am starting it all my folders in the folder panel are developed. It is really annoying as I have hundred of folders that I need to close manually at every startup. Why can't this version remember the status of which folders were opened and which one were closed?

I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick
