How to view HTML emails in Outlook 2016 in Firefox

Good day,

I use Outlook 2016 installed on my Windows 10 desktop to manage my email accounts. As the default security settings of Outlook software prevents a number of scripts from running, it is common to be unable to view an HTML email as the sender intended, even if one “downloads pictures”, and so Outlook displays an advisory on these emails; “If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser”. If I click on this, the email will open in Internet Explorer (IE) and I will be able to view the email as intended.

I want to open these emails automatically in Firefox (FF) but, despite searching the web for a solution, I cannot see how to do this. My default web browser is set as FF and everything web related other than Outlook emails successfully opens in FF. I see that the Outlook emails are saved thus: C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Outlook\UniqueID\email.mht. I have searched how to open mht files in FF and have accordingly downloaded the Web Archives Extension. Unfortunately, even with Web Archives installed, when I try to open the cached mht file in FF, the file will not open. I also tried to change the default application by file type of .mht and .mhtml files from IE to FF but Windows will not offer FF as an alternative program for these files types.

Please could someone advise what I should do so that if I need to view an email in Outlook in a browser, the email will open, and successfully render, in FF?

Thank you.

When searching for a word on an already loaded page I use find (cntrl f). The word if found is highlighted in a different color. In the default case its a light green. Can I change the color to red bold or at the least the background color in the highlighted word to black or red. Anything that has a much higher contrast. There doesn't seem to be a config option to do this but it may not be under the "findbar" family.

Hello guys I have this very bad problem When I do a search. If I am in the home Firefox, I press [Ctrl + T], enter a new tab, then I do a search through the address bar and before moving to the results, there is a moment in which the background turns all white and then the results are displayed. (I have dark mode active) Do you know how to solve by chance? I use Manjaro Linux. Thanks in advance.

I'm using Windows 10 and just updated to Firefox 78.0.1 last night. Normally, when I open a new tab, I push the down arrow key to bring up my browser history and access my most-used sites. Upon updating last night, I discovered that I can no longer do this. When I press the down key, nothing happens. To get the same result I'm used to, I have to press the space bar, but I've been doing this a certain way for several years and the motion is completely ingrained in me. If I turn Top Sites back on in the options, the drop-down list will open upon pressing the down key, but that of course only brings up the Top Sites. That's not what I want. I tried rolling back to the previous version, 77.0.1, but that didn't fix anything. If I create a new profile, the problem persists. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I know it sounds like an extremely minor issue, and maybe that's true, but I just want to use my browser the way I like using it. I'd appreciate any help/input.

Also, I suppose I should mention that I didn't make any changes to my preferences prior to this issue.

FIREFOX 75 UPDATE: How to change internet address bar dropdown to display most visited sites?

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update? I only see 6 results when I had it set to about 20 before.

I have gone to browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and changed that setting to False thinking that would help but all that has done is eliminated the entire drop-down list altogether when the address bar is clicked.

I checked my browsing privacy options in the settings menu within Firefox and it appears everything remains exactly as before, prior to update. Maybe there is some special combo of settings and about:config options that can bring the drop-down menu back that I enjoyed so much prior to update version 75.

Any recommendations?

I find myself facing a real dillema, I prefer to use Firefox for most things however, due to the fact that Firefox does not support H.265 and has instead opted to only support AVI video I cannot use it to manage the massive fleet of Security Cameras I manage. I am stuck using IE or Edge both of which are garbage. Along with that Chrome also has decided to only support AVI so that is worthless as well. In our modern era of technology I find it morally repugnant that a company like Firefox would turn their back on their loyal users. Could someone please explain to why Firefox cannot even implement an add-on that would allow use of the built in hardware decoder if supported on your computer like IE/Edge are capable of doing? I just don't understand why Firefox insists on copying Chrome rather than being their own independent company, especially when Chrome has worked their way into almost a monopoly status, and even if Chrome is not a monopoly every other browser now seems to just be a spin off of Chrome. I would imagine that Firefox would want to support as much as possible and not dictate to the world like Google has decided to do. Really starting to lose faith in Firefox's ability to be their own company.

Hello. As the title states, themes don't seem to be working as they should. If I apply the theme, and it changes the tab bar, and it will change the home page as it should. After I close and then re-open Firefox, however, the home page goes back to being un-themed, despite (as far as I can tell) everything else that should be affected by the theme still being themed. I am using the official dark theme that comes with the browser, and the only extensions that I have that should affect it are Dark Reader and Firefox Color, though the problem still occurs with them disabled. My other extensions are listed in the "Installed Plugins" part. The issue seems to happen on both Kubuntu and Windows. Thank you for reading. EDIT: I tried without Color, and it worked. I think it was applying an old theme I made on Color that looked like the dark theme but with a white start page. Sorry for the mistake on my end.

I'm not going to get into the complete and utter disaster that 78 is. I'll keep my grief and anguish to myself. The fact that I have to click spacebar to get to the old (vastly superior) dropdown list makes me irate. (This is the first time I've explored other programs outside of firefox in over 15 years.) So, I've done this, I've clicked spacebar on the address bar, I can now see my old list of recent or popular, or whatever sites that I frequent the most. But now there's this completely worthless "Search with..." at the top. I've deleted all but one of these search options from the "One-Click Search" in options, but it won't let me delete the last one. I don't need another place to search or something else that I quite frankly don't need in my way. At the top of the search page under options there's this neat little feature called "Search Bar" It's insanely brilliant, I use it all the time. sits right next to the address bar, simple, easy, functional. When I click on the address bar itself, It's all ready for me to search, again, brilliant. Why do I need a 3rd option to get to the same thing?

How do I remove the one-click search from appearing in the address bar dropdown?

Hi everyone!

I have have a problem when typing e-mails in an hotmail.com-account. Almost every second word is underlined with a red wavy line. It marks spelling mistakes and makes suggestions for a different spelling. I do not need spell check and even do not want it. It's very annoying.

I use Windows 7.

I have deactivated spell check in both Firefox and Outlook already and also have restarted Firefox after several changes. But the red lines are still there.

Does anyone have any idea what else I could try?

THANKS A LOT for any tips and advice in advance.

I'm using ff on my android tablet. Along with bookmarks and history, I can click on the 'top sites' tab, which let's me scroll thru two screens, each with 8 pinned sites. I just pinned a site on the second screen, and it was immediately'bumped' to the first screen, and one of my favorite pinned sites was automatically moved to the second screen.

I then unpinned and re-pinned this favorite site, thinking it would move it to the first screen, just whatas happened with the newer site, but instead it just got moved to a different spot on the second screen?

What I want to know, do I have any control as to which 'top sites' go on which screen? As far as I can tell, I don't and FF seems to have a mind of its own as to where these pinned site are placed?

Love me FF, thanks for such a great browser.

As the Subject describes, I just wanna move or remove the Forward/Back/Refresh/Bookmark controls either down or off the contextual menu. I am constantly right-clicking for dev purposes and it automatically clicks the back button almost every time and thus goes back to the previous page. THIS IS A HEADACHE AND A TIME SUCK.

Screenshot attached. Any help is appreciated.
