I just downloaded Thunderbird (Version 78.0.1, 32 Bit)to replace the Windows mail client. So far it's working fine, but the emails from the current date in prior years are intermingled with those from the current date. I've seen some support articles on the config file changes to try, but I don't have "options" under the tools menu. I do have "Options" in the menu (at the same level as "tools" but there is no "advanced" entry - and I can't seem to find a way to get to the config file.

Thanks for any help!

This morning I received a response to a question posted yesterday. However, the response was to a link that did not provide a successful result. I'll try to restate the problem more clearly. Problem: when I click on the address bar to initiate a search, seven choices appear in a drop down menu, none of which I want. These choices include options that are NOT resolved by going to Settings, Options, Search and unchecking a search engine choice. As mentioned before, these also are not in my bookmarks or my search history, or in Extensions, so I'm stumped as to where to go to get rid of them.

Please see screenshots, attached. One screen shot is of my choices in Settings, Options, Search. In this shot, the only search engine I've chosen is DuckDuckGo. The other screen shot is of the drop down choices that appear in my search bar. Please notice that the drop down choices include, for example, Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter. None of these sites appear under Settings, Options, Search. Please help. Thank you.

My comcast emails are not loading to my Local Folders Inbox, so I want to check the settings. However, I am using Global Inbox, so there is no account to click on except "Local Folders," which does not allow me to see my account settings. How can I check my POP3 settings when I can't access them?

Thunderbird is a great program. The issue I have is while thinking I am using the Quick Filter to search my inbox, I frequently hit the letter "a" only to have message(s) moved to my archive folder by accident. I realize this is not really a problem with the program, but if the message archive functionality could be altered either under the advanced configuration settings or add either the Shift+ or Ctrl+ or Alt+ functionality to it would be nice.

I appreciate the consideration, J

Hello,

see the image attached and this second serie of buttons circled in red (toolbar ?) inside the message header. Not sure when they appeared really, maybe with 78.0. Or just a recent misusage from me. But anyway there are new to me, and the point is I can't find myself a way to delete these at all.

Hoping for some help ;)

Dear Cor-el,

Thank you for responding and answering my question. You have helped me out gratefully! Your answer is right, easy to understand and to fulfill. I can move those icons from now on. Hereby I have an other question. I have more extensions added, but not all of those icons are shown in the toolbar. How do I realize that?

Real example I have in the toolbar 4 extension icons but I have 7 extension enabled. Where have been those other 3 icons?

Regards,

Van Lieren

[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1352314. Please follow up there, thanks.]

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.

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.

Minimize, resize and close icon not being integrated into Firefox window

Hi,

since the new, yet discussed, Firefox Browser update I've had a problem with the minimize, resize and close buttons on the top right corner of the Firefox window on my laptop. My problem is that those buttons are not integrated into the Firefox window itself.

What I mean is that to accommodate those buttons there is a white long bar all across the top part of the window with the "XXX site - Mozilla Firefox" title at the left and the "_ ⬜ X" icons on the right, while on my Desktop version those buttons are well integrated into the black (my theme color) part of the Firefox window, being at the same height as opened tabs (the said position of the icons on my desktop is represented by the white rectangle drawn on the attached picture (red lines are censored bookmarks and information)).

Is there a way to get rid of that white top strip and integrate the minimize, resize and close buttons in the Firefox window itself?

Thanks very much in advance for any help or reply!

Whenever i press the "w" key a search bar opens in the bottom of my browser. This is the search also accessed by ctrl + f. I need this gone since it bothers my ability to use the browser. I cant find it being a keybind from firefox or duckduckgo so i really wonder what caused this.
