I have always had PDFs set to "Always ask" is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file This hasn't changed. The dialog which asks what to do with the file used to have "Save File" selected by default. This was convenient, because this is usually what I want. However, the default selection has recently changed to "Open with Firefox", which I hardly ever want. This requires me to perform an extra step when accessing PDFs from the Web, which I do quite often. I am not aware of having done anything which would affect this, nor have I found a corresponding option to change it back. How can I restore the previous behaviour?

Suddenly it says "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk" every time I move emails. Every stupid time. Probably a very useful feature but just not how I have used things for the last decade or so. At first all I wanted to say was 'thank you but no thank you" Now it is getting beyond a joke. How do I get rid of this without deleting any emails? Yes I know they are nominally deleted but I've use that as an easy way to archive them and then copy them off as a history trail. All my accounts are carefully set to "Don't delete any messages". I like that. I mean it.

My has husband has failing eyesight and has given up writing e-mails, primarily because he can't see what he is typing. I have gone to the setting options and changed the font to Arial Rounded and text size to huge and clicked ont the bold text button. However, the changes only last as long as it takes to write and send the e-mail. When he goes back to his Thunderbird program, all those changes have disappeared. How can I set them all to be the default settings in his Thunderbird program? Thanks for any help. --Myra

What happened to the Arial Black font? It suddenly disappeared from the list of fonts that appear in Tools >> Options >> Language and Appearance.

Due to vision problems, I require a bold font. Mozilla has now made it almost impossible for me to use Firefox. Does anyone know of a workaround to this problem?

also, a FYI: Removal of this font violates the Americans With Disabilities law.

I cannot get Firefox to stop using dark mode. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, checking my Mac's settings (dark mode is not enabled), and Firefox still shows dark mode in webpages (like Google News). It makes it really hard to read the page without reading glasses.

Is there a way to turn this off? It is really irritating.

My husband & I both have Thunderbird on Windows 10. I have set the fonts to be large (24 pt) for both composition and display, but while both things work on my PC, only the composition part works on his. I am attaching a JPEG showing the problem. The text is large when typed, but much smaller when the message is received. I have also attached a JPEG showing the current advanced settings for fonts on both PCs.

 I thought this might be related not to fonts but to a setting in View--but I played around with those and nothing changed: the type in the messages received is still much smaller than in the messages he writes.  It is set to Classic view, message body Original HTML.
 His Windows 10 display is set to custom scaling of 110%, which doesn't seem to make any difference.
 Is there some other setting I should try to adjust?
 

Many thanks for any suggestions!

Hi, I'm trying to help a friend move her email account to another provider. I've been able to pull all her old web mail messages down from the old host and into Thunderbird, but I can't seem to export the inbox to a mbox file so I can import it into Horde on another host (she wants to use webmail directly, not through a program).

My export attempts are resulting in an inbox file but it's a blank file type (File) and the import seems to work on Horde but then there are no messages imported. I can import/export messages one at a time but that's not a sane solution.

I've tried to set up ImportExportTools NG to export folders as Mbox file but I don't end up with an Mbox file anywhere that imports into Horde.

Help please, and thanks!

bold textGsync Add on has gone. - Thanks for warning us! How on early do I sync contacts now with Gmail?

Every time I get an upgrade something else changes. Having used this system now since 2008, I am finally thinking of giving up and transferring to Outlook again. I do this with great regret - but I am really not cut out for the Thunderbird world.

So If there is a solution, I might stay, but its become too much of a hassle now - I have also subscribed funds for many years.

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.

Until the recent Tbird updates, I could set the fonts to Georgia, navy, and compose and receive my email (to myself) in Georgia. Now, I compose in Georgia, it leaves as Georgia, but when I view it in my inbox it is displayed in a sans serif font.

If I view the source of the incoming email, it is clearly set to Georgia - yet Tbird displays the incoming email as sans serif (though still navy).

It means that I can never see the sent message as my recipient sees it (assuming they can display Georgia, of course).

Why has Tbird made this change and how can I fix it? There doesn't seem to be as much control over fonts as there was. I am using UTF8 encoding to display £€ correctly.

I can't see anything online about this.
