Hi Versions from 78 do not keep my column settings, in the inbox I change to the sender, subject, date, size, and after entering another folder and returning to the inbox folder, everything returns to the default settings; asterisk, attachment, read, unwanted, subject, correspondents, date. I checked on several computers, even removed Thunderbird, cleaned the registry to rule out that the reason was an upgrade from an older version, and the same after a clean install.

I don't see an option to restore previous session any more.

did some googling and found a reference to checking a box in option

it said that then it would be automatic.

so I check that and I'm waiting to see what's going to happen in future: it didn't make my previous session come back this time.

so the question is: Is this right? We must check that option and that's it? No way to go back to the old version method?

Firefox's onboard spellchecker needs to go back to college, or probably high school! Every day I have several words with the dotted underline, telling me they're not words, or not spelled correctly. However, when checking the dictionary, I confirm that the spell-check feature is wrong, and I am correct! I don't want to disable it completely, as it does let me know when I've made a typo, which I can quickly correct, but it's a pain in the butt to keep having it say something's wrong with a word, and there's not... I honestly can't believe it can be that hard to use a source that's accurate, when it's something on everyone's screen that uses Firefox...

Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

Once again Netflix isn't able to play the videos on the FireFox browser. It told me that my browser was not updated, so I updated the Add-ons and then I got the dreaded "Widevine has crashed" again. This happened before in April 2021? I think and then it was fixed. I hope the FireFox team sees this and is able to fix this bug again. Any other suggestions from other users are welcomed.

I would like to get an actual answer to an archived question that I didn't find very useful. This is the one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1301997 . I have also attached an image of a reply to this question that I relate to a lot, but unfortunately it didn't get an answer. So, I would like to ask the same question as this guy asked: For privacy reasons, I would like to hide the notification bar that pops-up in front of all windows, showing the video's title and thumbnail, but not the function for Control Media Playback. Is it possible?

If you couldn't understand the question, I'll explain again. So I attached another image (the second one) for demonstration. This shows this pop-up that is hard to name, so I'll call it a pop-up;

I would like to hide the video title and thumbnail from this pop-up just for privacy reasons. I don't think this is currently possible because the only configuration I could find was "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled", but if I disable it it would remove the function completely.

Hello,

The gestures defined by browser.gesture.swipe.* do not work on Firefox Linux unless the ALT key is held down. I only discovered it that worked at all with ALT by accident while searching about this issue...

Is there a way to get gestures to work WITHOUT requiring the use of the keyboard (which would seem to defeat the purpose of having touchpad gestures)?

Thanks.

v89 significantly changed the "Top Sites" default icons. Is there an about:config setting that can be changed to revert to the v88 icons? (Setting browser.proton.enabled to FALSE had no effect on the default Top Sites Icons.)

BTW, I do not find the new default Top Sites Icons to be an improvement. On the contrary, the bright colors and large letter outlines are overbearing and distracting. I would prefer no icons to the v89 icons. The v88 (and prior) icons were okay. [In general, I found the v89 interface update a step backward from v88.]

Thank you for any assistance in finding a solution.

I keep my address bar and search bar separate. I wanted to have the address bar execute the search on the already open tab, and the search bar to open a new tab in the background without stealing the focus. I managed to set them up separately, now the address bar does not open a new tab and the search bar does, but the newly opened tab always steals the focus. I'm trying to keep the focus on the already open tab while the search bar opens a new tab without switching to it. Is there a way to achieve this?

When is Mozilla going to stop making FireFox even less ADA Acceptable? Thousands, if not millions, choose FF because it is accessible. With each update starting with Quantum, FF has become less accessible. I am currently trying to find an accessibility attorney to file a discrimination claim against FF/Mozilla. Stop making thing broken by 'fixing' them. Thin lines. Thin fonts. Icons without text. Shaded colors with no definition. A tab line on top with hazzy shadows behind it. YUCK

People with vision issues such as early cataracts cannot see this crap.

Mozilla F'd the Fox with this one.

Does there need to be an uprising at Mozilla in SF to get somebody's attention?

Dear All,

I urgently need to retrieve various documents saved in the past as web pages with the Scrapbook extension which I found very easy and useful. Some of them date back to 2008. When I try to reactivate ScrapBook in "Add-ons and Themes" I find that ScrapBook is disabled and that there is no switch to re-enable it. i have access to the ScrapBook folder in the /home/.../.mozilla/firefox/********.default folder. Indeed I find in that folder a lot of data folders titled with the date and time of creation but it is very tedious to search. How can I reactivate ScrapBook or is there another way to easily access all these pages saved with ScrapBook? Firefox extension or standalone software?

Thanks in advance to all!
