I am trying to download all of the emails on my ISP's server to my hard drive using a recently downloaded Mac version of Thunderbird. I went to Offline-download/Sync Now and it appears to download but I can't find the file on my hard drive. There is no Thunderbird folder in the library, so no Profile folder where the files are supposed to live. Help please.

Hello everyone! thank you for your assistance and expertise ahead of time as any help is heavily appreciated.

I've been trying to find a way to disabled downloading in Firefox all together. The reason for this is per my organization's requests. As they do not want users downloading anything what so ever.

I've found extensions that can do this, however since I'm tweaking a profile in which is shared amongst all users. Its not the best solution since I have to manually check the add-ons on every time I make a new user profile.

Is there by any chance a means for me to disable downloading as a whole within either userChrome.css or about:config?

Any help again is greatly appreciated.

I have a fresh install of TB 78.8 on Windows 10. I use it to access my work email which is hosted by Google. I got the calendar to sync with Provider but gContactSync no longer works and I can't figure out any of the other options. I've ready about TbSync and Provider for CalDev & CardDev but can't figure out how to make it work. Could someone provide a dummies guide to getting my contacts sync'd? Thanks

Hi everyone,

I was experiencing troubles with color changing when writing a mail in the composer. I could not get a new color being applied even if I selected one different from black in the toolbar. I looked for a tip on other forums but nothing was satisfying in my case... Just to give the tip for others that could meet some similar situation, maybe you will have to check for colors parameters in "general settings" instead of looking for a solution with "composer settings". The issue was described on this forum for windows users, and the solution was found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1100393#question-reply Tools - Options - Display - Formatting - Default Font - Colors - Override the colors specified by content was "always" and I changed it to "never"

but there was no evidence that the problem could be solved for MacOS users regarding the last posts...

So here it is: I am using French version of Thunderbird so if I give some inaccurate translation for menu titles, I am sorry for this. 1. Go to Thunderbirds / Preferences / General 2. Scroll down till "Languages and appearance" 3. Click the "Colors" button 4. Uncheck "Use system colors" 5. Quit and relaunch Thunderbird

You should now be able to select whatever color you want in the mail composer ! And modify selected text or entire text.

Hope it will help.

NB: What is strange about these settings is that it should apply to the mail visualizer only, not to the mail composer... but it works ... I am not a thunderbird killer... so... that's it !

I am using Firefox for Android on my Samsung Tab A.

I have long-time carpal tunnel and sometimes my fingers kind of drag on the screen, I guess, because it constantly activates a pop up that comes in front of my screen and asks me if I want to save or share this image. I have never used this popup to save or share images but it's always in the way. I wish I could just turn it off so I could relax my hand and browse, without it always getting in the way. Please tell me there is a way.

I set process limit to 1. Firefox runs 5+. Pray tell what does setting the process limit do exactly? Also Firefox says it sets the process limit automatically to optimize system specs. I've installed FF on machines with specs ranging from low budget build to godbox yet it always defaults to 4 processes. Then runs more. Is it all BS? Do tell please?

I'm fed up with Mozilla nuking important extension I need for browsing and breaking stuff.

Extensions that add things to context menu such as Image Search Options are not showing, and no other similar extension will be of use to me even if it was working on mobile.

I will code myself a solution that work on mobile for me to use. I just want to know exactly who to add things to the context menu for Firefox on Android. Don't bother explaining anything else to me, I just want to fix that especific part that is broken.

I sought without answer to see how to PREVENT restoring previous sessions, freezing my computer because FF did not clear previous sessions, internet access freezing when social media sites weren't cleared, as they used to be. And then, reading the solution on, how to access restoresession options, I come upon about:config and search browser.session I see the problem. Instead of setting options to clear previous history, FF now has uncountable options which - hide browsers I've deletes, like Bing - maintain restoring sessions up to 5, 10, 32 times, even though I've set the option to never - keep data I wanted deleted, in Top sites, in pocket, in other options - set Google as the default translator even though I've chosen not to use it I am seriously disappointed in Firefox and Mozilla. I have used it since I found it one- two ? decades ago because it WASN'T wired into the top-heavy, data-excessive, intrusive-spying behemoths of Google and Microsoft. Did Google buy you out, or something? I do notice that the wonderful creative-commons data options have been swallowed up by those icons of not-for-profit and community sharing, google-android, every for-profit phone companies (ATT, Verizon,etc.) How sad and ironic. I found my solution was, select 0 for many, many browser.?? options and deleting the history I found in various switches. Posting this to share my disillusion.

I was wondering if their was a way to switch the find bar bar back to the old way of searching. The way it is now is annoying. When I use find it's usually the same search across multiple tabs. Now I have to open the find in each tab and if I change the find in one tab it doesn't change across the other find bars so I now have to change each individually. Thanks.
