cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

I currently have this add-on installed. It allows you to you highlight certain text, then right click and open up a link to Wiktionary in another tab. Up until a few minutes ago, this menu item was at the very top of the list (i.e. above "undo" and all the rest), but now it's been moved down with all the other add-ons. Image for further clarity.

The add-on hasn't been updated in 6 years, so it's certainly not that. I don't recall doing anything to make it change, but before this, it had been at the top of the menu ever since I added it maybe 2 years ago. Is there any potential way to restore this functionality? The fact that it appeared at the very top of the menu might have been a bug, but if that's the case, it was certainly a convenient one.

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to hearing from you fine folks in this community.

Hi, I have been a long term business user of Microsoft Outlook due to my desire top keep all my mail files separate from the O/S directory and stored on a my second data disc. I used to create PST files for every year with all folders under them. Is it possible to direct Thunderbird sub-folders data to my second drive, away from the O/S disc, for safety reasons.

Thanks Brian

I need to create a WebExtension which automates the setup of a MailAccount, however I cannot find an API for it. It seems staggering that there wouldn't be one, this is perhaps the single most basic thing I can think of for an extension to do, but here are the docs: https://webextension-api.thunderbird.net/en/latest/accounts.html and it doesn't seem to be in there. Is there a way to achieve this or is such a feature on the roadmap?

The current font that Thunderbird is using is too small for me. I tried increasing every font size in the settings-general section, but nothing changed. I tried using ctrl++ but that does nothing. I also went to View->Zoom and all of the zoom functions are greyed out and non-functional. Any ideas?

Thunderbird 91.13.1 and updated to 102.3.0 64 bit version. No change in behavior after update.

Windows 10 ver 21H2 Build 19044.2006

using thin clients to RDP to a server running Firefox (Windows) The thin client sessions need to update a file (document, PDF, spreadsheet, etc.) Need to be able to open a document (not download it), modify it and save it back to the server. Have tried under Applications changing what application is used to open it and also used Always Ask. Firefox still downloads the document and, therefore any changes are made to the copy the thin client's Downloads folder instead of the original on the server. We have multiple thin clients at the locations in question and users accessing the documents on the shared server need to see the most recent version. Currently I can make changes to a document and save it, go back to the server and open the same file and the changes I just made are not there. They are on the copy in my downloads file. Short version. I need to be able to use thin clients (running Windows) that are connecting to a server (Running Windows) to be able to open say a PDF file without it being copied to the Downloads folder on the thin client. Edit the file (if needed) and when that modified file is saved, the changes go the the original file on the server and not the copy in the thin client's downloads folder. Using the same hardware and IE there is no problem with downloads happening and so any updates made are on the server file.

My boss uses Firefox and said he is having a repeat issue with his browser. The issue is that every few weeks Firefox undoes a setting that he has and we cannot figure out why. It could be when you update to a new version.


What happens is that he has file extensions for PDF and ICS files set to automatically open and instead they change to download instead. He then has to download one of each file type and manually change the setting back to auto-open. Again every 3-4 weeks this resets to download.

I used to be able to see all my inboxes in one folder. Since the upgrade, a couple of my inboxes aren't showing up. I have to expand all of my inboxes to see if I have new messages. I missed some important emails because they always used to come to my unified inbox. How do I get them all in one unified inbox?

How can I get rid of the new spacing and useless icons? I feel that the new interface is clunky, it takes more scrolling to get to where I want to be. I run 13 email accounts and I can no longer get them on the same sidebar. My fault for downloading an update on the beta channel to my main computer, but I would really like to get some information density back instead of it looking like a low budget 80s video game.
