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.

I have about 10 email accounts, and I want the emails to all display in one email window, as they did in Outlook.

How do I arrange that?

It seems I can easily search through all my email accounts - but I want to browse through them in one place as well.

I've looked for the answer and can't find it in any of the support materials - although it seems pretty basic.

Does this have to do with profiles? Or am I missing something?

Many thanks, ArtK

Hi

I noticed that without an evident reason, some buttons on the toolbar (e.g. Forward, Print. Archive) are disabled when are supposed to be available. If I customize the toolbar they become active, but only when customize windows is active. On the other hand, contextual menu is woking fine. Any hint please?

Regards

I have one special email account that I use for one type of correspondence; genealogy. When sending email to someone I only correspond with about genealogy I have to remember to change the FROM: account used from my default mail account to that special account. I sometimes forget and expose my default personal primary account. Is there a way to assign the FROM: mail account to individual contacts. So, when I select the TO: the FROM: is automatically assigned?

I've tried various themes to no result. It seems the new programing language, scripting or other wise has probed too thoroughly.

Previously Thunderbird 68 was clear like Firefox is 80. Thunderbird 73 overlays the Graphics card stats.

Yes it is a very old card. What might remove this effect?

Please find the image attached.

Best Regards

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

Is there any way to filter the folders in the folder pane? I have too many of them to scroll through them all the time. I use Quickfolders but even then it gets too crowded now.

If I could just start typing the name of a folder to make all the others disappear from the folder panel, that would be perfect. I don't mind using an add-on but haven't found one for this.

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 ;)

I have somehow set a website that I visit often to launch each time I open Firefox and I can't for the life of me figure out how to undo it! I can't find help in the database or by Googling. Clearly I'm not using the correct terms because this must be easier than I'm making it! I'm running 82.1.3. Thank you for any assistance.

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.

I have an add-on which is installed from the public add-on store (?). This add-on works quite good.

Nevertheless I made some tiny adjustments in the source to fullfill my needs. I can manually load the file from the add-on manager which works as well.

But as soon as I do one of the two task:

  • restart the whole computer (or logout and login)
  • Check for Update

the manually loaded xpi is gone. It is only the public one available.

==> How to have the manually adapted xpi loaded all the time and the public one not any more?
