I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

My Thunderbird has been working fine on WIN 7 and GMAIL. I can download messages and send. However I upgraded on November 13th to 78.4.3 and now I can still download messages BUT sending results in this. "Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.gmail.com timed out. Try again."

I've tried all the usual things verifying setting etc. It seems this has happened before based on the help forums. I've trued those fixes as well. Nothing works. Thanks Tom

I composed an email message in Thunderbird like I always do. I typed {{Email Address}} in the To: field and {{First Name}} in the message body as in "Dear {{First Name}}. In my CSV file, the column headings were Email Address, First Name, and Last Name.

From the File menu, I chose Mail Merge. In the Mail Merge dialog, I chose CSV, Send Later, and browsed to and selected my CSV file.

The following error notification displayed when I clicked OK or choose Preview.

[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8050000e (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_INPUT) [nsIConverterInputStream.readString]" nsresult: "0x8050000e (NS_ERROR_ILLEGAL_INPUT)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://mailmerge/content/utils.js :: csv :: line 365" data: no]

Does this indicate an error in my CSV file? If so, what do I do?

If not, is there a problem with the settings that I selected? Or is there a problem with Thunderbird?

Also, why does this thread insert "' when I try to bold names and selections? Very irritating.

Thank you.'


Oh, crap. Forgot this. I am on Windows 10 Home, Version 1909.

So in the pass whenever i want to send/forward an email, i just copy & paste the email to the address bar and send it. it just work.

With the new TB layout this has become annoying. If i click send after pasting/typing multiple email in the address bar, TB wont send the email the last address pasted. i need to click tab, enter or comma for it to "lock". see the attachment, after i type "test2@web.com", if i dont click tab/enter/comma, and directly click send. email wont be sent to "test2@web.com" since it wasn't locked like "test1@web.com".

Im on TB x86 78.5.0 (32-bit)

how can i have TB send all the email in the address even if its not "locked" yet?

Recently Yahoo has insisted that I recreate my Thunderbird login because they want to use a different 'more secure' method. So I've done this (basically delete it from Thunderbird and then recreate it).

In addition to the yahoo account I have two other accounts (one on an Outlook server and one on Googles gmail system).

All emails accessed via POP and set to deliver to 'Local Folders'.

Prior to replacing the Yahoo account the first time I started Thunderbird and tried to access these emails I had to enter a password for each one (I have no desire to use the option to have Thunderbird remember my passwords so was quite happy to do this). But as long as I kept Thunderbird running any subsequent checking of emails did not require a password to be entered (so basically I entered the passwords once a day). This has worked for years.

Now however it seems that other than the Yahoo account, which does seem to remember the password I have used after the initial use each session, I have to enter the passwords every time I try to download the emails.

Suspect I am missing some obvious setting somewhere that will restore it to working the way it used to.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello,

I have a 2018 iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.0.1. I have Firefox 83 installed and using it.

I wanted to know if anyone knew when mozilla is gonna update the logo so it matches the Big Sur UI? It kinda drives me nuts when I see that the only thing not consistent with the stuff in my dock is Firefox - everything else like Logic pro x, imovie, chrome, etc. is all up to date.

Thanks.

Hello, My problem is when I did the lastest FireFox update on 11/21/20, YouTube video's will not play on FireFox, even with the accelerated hardware un-checked, and even in Safe Mode. However - YouTube "does" work just fine on Google Chrome.

My system: MBP, High Sierra, using FireFox version: 83.0 (64-bit). What Ive done so far: Ive shut off the ad-blocker, the accelerated hardware is always off, went into Safe Mode and still the vids wont play. YouTube video's play perfectly fine in Google Chrome.

FireFox: I can watch movies on Amazon Prime with no problems. Its just a YouTube problem.

Thanks very much for your sage advice.

After formatting a brand new computer, I am facing issues when printing a few PDF files where Firefox will alter the font and size. I've tried other browsers (Edge, Chrome) and none of this happens. I've also attempted a few fixes like resetting Firefox, reinstalling Firefox, changing settings in the print preview (which is an excellent way to see the problem without even having to print).

Specific example: A PDF attachment in Roundcube Webmail is printed, and the text fields have the font size adjusting to the height of the field. In this particular instance I will share an example where the original PDF has a form text/memo field that defaults to use Helvetica font with auto-sizing - begins at about 12px and gets smaller to fit the text inside the box.

Printing this PDF from Firefox (to an actual printer or to PDF) results in the bad font settings mentioned above, and when using a PDF printer I find that the font changed from the original's size 10 to Arial size 62. This issue can also be perceived using the print preview.

If anyone has some ideas, I would appreciate it.

Bets regards.

Thunderbird used to show a yellow star right on the folder when looking at multiple inboxes. The new TB does not show me which inbox received new message! I have to click each folder to see which one has the unread mail.

Usually when I hear the beep, I go to TB take a quick glance and it used to show which inbox has new mail....

Please if you can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you

Hello! I use Thunderbird on Windows 10 for my emails. I am trying to connect via POP3 connection to Godaddy's Office 365 server where the email is set up. When I put in the server settings Godaddy has given me https://au.godaddy.com/help/find-my-microsoft-365-imap-or-pop-settings-9012, Thunderbird gives a message that it senses that the server is there. But when I select done, I get an error message "Config could not be verified. Likely that server admin has disabled selected configuration for your account."

Thunderbird doesn't have the encryption method of SSL, so I tried all the other encryption methods. I got the same error message.

I am certain that the password is correct because I have logged in directly from the browser with no trouble. I copy and paste the password so there is no chance for typos.

Hi Everyone,

I've read through a number of threads but haven't been able to find an answer.

I have multiple accounts (optusnet) set up in Thunderbird, most have been in use for years. 1 has recently been compromised so I have switched to a gmail account and stopped using the compromised account.

I am receiving most gmail address emails, however I have noticed a few have been received in one of the older accounts that I am no longer using (not the compromised one) and don't check very often. When I view one of these emails, it shows me it was sent to the gmail address on the header, but it never appeared in my gmail inbox. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this would happen, and how to prevent it?

I've not changed any settings in Thunderbird lately, but I do think an update was installed recently, and am now using version 78.5.0 (32-bit).

Thanks in advance for any advice.
