Is it not possible to update security etc without ruining a perfectly good interface? I realize a reversion is possible but why go through all the hassle? When there is an updated version that doesn't change the interface let me know, until then I will stick to what I like.

Prevent FF from starting TB with profile manager

Using "email link" feature.

Regardless of how I set the email client to be Thunderbird, either in FF or in the OS (Win 7 64bit), TB starts up in the profile manager, and because TB is already running, I am unable to compose a message in the currently-used profile. I have 3 profiles defined, and I do not want to use either of the other 2.

I observe that the OS believes that the command line for running TB (from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Mozilla Thunderbird\Protocols\mailto\shell\open\command ) is

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose "%1"

That is the correct path on my installation.

If I manually run that command from a command window, for example:

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose

or

"C:\pctools\Mozilla\Thunderbird\v38.4.0\thunderbird.exe" -osint -compose "body='foobar'"

then TB starts up with compose window as expected (including "foobar" in that case).

I cannot, however, without doing some surgery on the registry, determine what argument FF is sending to the OS for the "%1" argument to TB.

If I knew the latter, maybe I could fix this problem.

Or, maybe someone can tell me how to fix the problem at user level?

I recall that years ago I had a similar problem on an XP machine, but I am not sure how I fixed it. I think I may have copied an Outlook version of mapi.dll into the windows system directory. However, it appears that now TB and/or FF have their own version of mapi.dll (with a somewhat different name).

Have been emailing Fredmcd, but he has disappeared. When I click on Bookmarks goes to a dialogue box instead of actually bookmarks. Then I have to click on 'from Internet explorer." I have done 3 uninstalls 2 without personal settings, did a reset issue stays the same. very annoying. See from above FF has a LOT of dialogue box issues. Would seem this is a design issue can't get rid of. Please advise. HP says its a FF27 issue. I have Windows 8.1 which seems to have lot of compatibility issues with FF27! I have a screen shot of this issue.

thanks

When I open a new page, with CMD-N, the new page opens with the Add-on Bar at the bottom of the window. Now I know this is easy to remove with a key combination, but it gets to be a big nuisance; and I need all the open space when I'm on my 11" Macbook Air. There must be a default setting so that new windows do not contain the Add-on Bar (like it used to be). Any help would be appreciated.

I am using Firefox 27 on a 11" Macbook Air (and a 15" Macbook Pro with the same result) using Mavericks 10.9 OS. I have 'Tab Mix Plus' installed also.

This did not work this time - I blame the update - your updates can sometimes be as troublesome as Windows I want my home page to be MY chosen FoxTabs - all 28 and please let them be the "NEW TAB" solution - why do you have to go about "FIXING" what aint damned well broke - it worked perfectly for me I arranged it - and it was fine every time - then this up daye and with it came a new "New Tab" abd an updated Start page where I had to type everything in
