Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

Hi There, Is there a way to sort the folders in the folder plane on Thunderbird 78? I am used to sorting my mail into many different folders for each project and being able to reorder the folders manually is really important. Previously I could use an Addon but this is now disabled in 78! At the moment the folders are listed in alphabetical order with no option to reorganise them.

Any ideas on how to do this would be very much appreciated.

Cheers!

I just upgraded to 78.3.2, and the message list panel now has significantly more spacing, less denstiy. There is more whitespace between lines. And there does not appear to be any option to reset this back to the previous compact view?

EDIT: Adding a note about an additional issue with the message list panel that is discussed in this thread... Prior to v78.3.2, a message/line in the message list pane would not become highlighted until I *clicked* on it. Now, whenever I just pass my mouse over the list, the message under the mouse becomes highlighted (and the last message(s) *selected* also remains highlighted). This results in two or more non-adjacent messages being highlighted in the same way at the same time. This is a poor usability experience and dangerous design that has caused me to perform operations on unintended messages multiple times, even nearly accidentally deleting messages. This usability degradation creates a risk of data loss.

I have latest version of Firefox. It wont display pictures in articles I read online unless I hold down shift and click the refresh button then do a control/F5. The articles all display properly in MS Edge if I use it. I am trying to understand what settings I need to change in Firefox to permanently fix this so I don't have to do this repeatedly.

Is there an add-on that will allow me to move the lists in my address book to another computer? In an earlier post, someone had recommended MoreFunctionsForAddressBook but apparently it is not compatible with TB 78.

Just to be clear - I'm not looking to transfer address books, but lists that I use for group mailing purposes.

Thanks for your help.

My default view for the Folder Pane is unread folders/compact view along with a few favorite folders.

Since this upgrade, TB shows me how many unread emails I have in a mail account that's the aggregate of ALL unread messages in that account but there are often zero messages in the inbox because they've all been filtered into other folders. The point being, that under the inbox for email account A it says I have 10 unread messages and thus shows in the folder pane but those messages are in a sub folder (which also shows in the Folder pane) of that account and not the main inbox.

How can I get TB to stop that, to stop showing me how many unread messages there are in the primary account (if there are none in the inbox) and only the unread messages in the sub folders? (both show now so it'll say I have 10 messages in account A but those messages are in A sub/b/c/d.

Does this make sense? Anyway, it's annoying as I keep going to the primary to see what's new and finding nothing in there rather than just go to the subfolder they've been filed in to.

Thanks.
