I've disabled this for my google account. So when I search from google.com this behavior doesn't happen. But when I type anything into my address bar on Firefox to search, the first suggestions are from my search history.

I don't want to delete my search history.

I often use my search history to find specific things that I need, but didn't bookmark at the time. I need my search history to be saved. I just don't want to automatically receive suggestions based on it.

Is there any way to turn this off? Even with an extension or something?

I have the option set to always ask me if I want to open a pdf with browser, acrobat, or to download. I usually select open with Acrobat and, for the last few months, I have been getting an unwanted download as well. I found in the help articles that this is now the default action. For me, it usually means that at the end of a session i have to go to my desktop (my optioned destination for downloads) and clean it up by deleting every file I have looked at.

I recommend that you make that functionality optional. I just want to view the vast majority of things I open. For the few that I might want to download after viewing them, i would prefer to take a proactive step to download them after I have reviewed them.

I was exploring this new 115 of Thunderbird and ended up wiping the message viewer off the screen.

To start with, I have my TBird 115 as it came "out of the box." Three columns, Inbox folder tree on the left, Cards List in the center, and message pane in the right side.

I messed everything up when I widened the Cards list to the right edge of the window, where the <---> arrowhead disappeared and all there is to the right side is the window resize arrow from my Linux system and that awful slim Jim scroll bar.

I recovered my message pane using F8 key; it is below my short list of email in the Cards View. See the attached screenshot.

I would like to return things back to as they were with the three columns as described above. I forgot, too, where I turned on Classic View. There is a checked box in Settings somewhere. Or is it a menu? I need some help, please.

May I suggest a limit somewhere short of the right-side edge of the window and short of the scroll bar to only widen the message pane "so far," such that one can recover from pushing it that far, using the same means to return it with the double arrow.

Hopefully nearing the end of a long saga. Used Comcast email and T'bird for many years. In November I wanted to add a new address to Comcast and that's when my troubles began - it was like quicksand: passwords, and more passwords etc. it became worse and worse and ... worse! I gave up on Comcast and opened Yahoo and iCloud email addresses and engaged Apple Mail. I've used Macs since about 1985 and used individual apps for browsing, mail, office suite etc. I'm used to having an "Address Book" as part of a mail program; Apple Mail has no address book their Mail reads "Contacts" for an address - very nice if one is using an iPhone but not so on my desktop Mac - so I return to Thunderbird which I'm used to. We oldies single task - it's like driving 25 MPH.

Today Matt helped with the correct authentication method to get my T'bird logged on to Yahoo, now to the rest of it:

I need to unfreeze T'bird's opening page which shows a Nov. 18 email as the newest message - I can't click the page away, only scroll to older messages. I sent myself a message today but it doesn't appear as a received message. Could the Mailbox be at capacity? I'm running T'bird v115.6.0 on Mac OS 13.6.3 and it was OK until I poked the hornets' nest.

Any thoughts are appreciated

I have Thunderbird set up on PC and a Laptop. On the PC I have version 115.9 installed and the Laptop (which is a more recent purchase) version 115.10.

On the PC I can easily sort by "date", "correspondent", etc as there are click buttons at the top of each column but these do not appear in version 115.10.

I have looked at all the view menu options and cannot see that anything will help to change this. Was this functionality removed in the upgrade or is there a way to alter the view settings? The screen shot is from the Laptop.

TIA

I've just updated to Firefox 125 and now, when I start to type in the URL bar and get my suggestion dropdown of previously visited pages, I no longer can see the actual url for each entry. All I see is the top level name for each entry.

This is not helpful, as I may have perviously visited a number of pages on that site and the information shown does not give me a way to differentiate sufficiently between those pages.

How can I get the exact url displayed on the suggestions dropdown.

How can I get those top level descriptions NOT displayed, so that only the urls are shown?

I have just installed Thunderbird v115.7.0 on Windows 11 for evaluation as a replacement for Outlook. After configuring my Gmail account, I was happy to find that it automatically synchronised with my Gmail address book and calendar.

The address book is nicely formatted and correctly displays all my data. When I attempted to copy a phone number, however, Thunderbird requested that I should link an application to the "tel file". I wished to link to Microsoft Phone Link but could not find a way to do this. As an alternative, I linked it to Notepad, hoping that I could then copy and paste the number. The was unsuccessful. Notepad opens but displays an error message: "Cannot find the C:\Program Files\Monzilla Thunderbird\tel.txt file".

Which applications does the link support and how can I change the configuration? I would be content if I could simply copy the nymber.

For the past few months every restart of Firefox disables LastPass. I did NOT have this problem previously. The version of LastPass is current (no updates found). I can go to Add-ons and the toggle is set to "on" but the icon in the menu bar is black. If I click the toggle off, then back on, LastPass comes on just fine. Why is Firefox disabling something that Add-ons says is loaded? VERY strange. Does NOT happen in Chrome. Thanks for any assistance. PITB!!!

This question was asked here and the answer worked for some years, but no longer does.

The method was pretty simple, just change browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground from the default FALSE to TRUE.

An update in the last few months (not sure which) broke this. So, what is the new way of doing this?

After the latest update (124.0.2), two of my add-ons (Tapermonkey and Youtube Redux) are not working, even though Firefox says they're enabled, and it is giving no indication that the add-ons aren't working, no pop-ups to enable some permission for these extensions. Both of them reformat the layout of websites to make them more usable, and using sites without them is basically impossible for me. I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Disabling the add-ons, refreshing, enabling the add-ons, and refreshing again
  • Checking for add-on updates (everything is updated)
  • Deleting and reinstalling the add-ons
  • Restarting my computer
  • Checking the permissions in the extension menu
  • Turning off all other extensions except for one of the ones with issues
  • Reading through the FAQs and help pages and following the instructions on some of them

Nothing has worked. Every time I reload one of the sites affected by this to check if it's finally worked, the site takes a very long time to load. Since these add-ons are for different websites and both aren't working, I know that the problem is not with the sites themselves. Thank you.

I finally thought that I would try the Saved Search Folder option. But once I saved a search in a folder and tried to use it, it seems that it doesn't work the way I thought it would.

I have a search that I do often where I have a bunch of electronic receipts from supermarkets and I search my email folders for: Subject: The subject line identifying the receipts Body: The name of the item that I want to find in the receipts reflecting the purchase of that item. One example is Miracle Whip. I can then not only find out how often I purchased the item but how much the price changed over time.

I saved the search figuring that I could pull it up and simply change the name of the item (let's say from Miracle Whip to Cheerios) without having to recreate the search from scratch. But when I clicked on the search folder, it looks like all it does is allow me to search again for Miracle Whip. So it looks like I would have to save a search for every item (dozens of them) that I buy regularly. Am I doing something wrong or is this just the way it works?
