Hi folks,

Does anyone know whether it is possible to dynamically re-sort messages after they have been changed (ie new tag added) in the inbox view?

As background, I sort my messages by tag and then group messages by the way they are sorted.

...category 1 at the top ...category 2 next ...etc

In an ideal world I would be able to use either the tag menu or shortcut keys to add or remove a tag and then have the folder view sort itself again automatically into the correct groups.

Right now I find that I either need to use a quick filter, or navigate to a different folder and back again to see the message sorted into the correct group.

Open to any and all suggestions, thanks!

Warm regards, Stewart

hi, Firefox 77.0.1 (32-bit) in Windows 7 crashed completely and i had to taskkill /im firefox.exe /f

this has happened a few times before, and up to this point Firefox could always restore the last session when reopened (maybe minus any last minute pages or any pages causing errors)

this time, the browser restored many pages, some of them are pages/tabs that i had already closed days before the crash (that i do not need) and also it didn't restore tens of tabs that i had opened afterwards (that i need) the missing tabs are not tabs that i opened right before the crash, they were open for at least one or two days in other words, the session restored is an earlier/older version and not the session i was having during/near the crash

is there something i can try to restore the correct session fully? would there be another restore file i can use? thank you for your time

I've noticed lately that some of the emails I move from my sent folder to the specific job folder disappear in the process. It looks like it may only affect some of the emails sent to a certain email address, but I don't know those to be the only ones. Some emails get moved fine, but others disappear.

I was getting worried that I may not have sent them out, but the recipient did reply to it so that confirmed that the email was sent out and received by them. Yet when I did a search through all my folders, I couldn't find the missing email. Not good.

This is for release 68.10.0 (32-bit - for some reason?). Help?

I simply wanted to feedback here, as well as directly to Mozilla, that the recent Firefox app updates on Android have cost me significant data loss and confusion.

I am no longer happy with the project, it's lack of communication to users within the app about UI and other changes, and the shuffling of apps which have created a problem for me.

I am seeking browsing alternatives on Android, and I am re-evaluating desktop browsing as well.

It is NEVER a good idea to make changes without communication or facilitation, REGARDLESS of the perceived logic behind the change.

When I signed on to my computer this a.m. and clicked on the Firefox icon from my Task Bar (on the bottom of the page) to bring up my homepage, it wouldn't go. I rec'd a msg stating it "couldn't find" a .dll file or something. When I clicked on the icon on my desktop, it started a whole new page - I lost all my "saved" pages and my "favorites" menu was gone! What happened and how can I get my "normal" Firefox page ?

I restored my Thunderbird profile from a backup and now I don't get any email. When I click on Get Messages, the status message along the bottom of the screen has my email address followed by "Connected to " followed by my server address. My wife has an email address on the same server account and her email is working fine. The server settings in Thunderbird are the same for both of us. And I can get email via webmail OK. I'd be grateful for any help.

Gmail.com just flat-out refuses to load. It works literally everywhere else, but the vast majority of the time it's acting like I'm not connected to the internet at all. I've managed to...trick it into connecting twice now by closing the tab, attempting to go to gmail.com in a new tab, then leaving it alone for about five minutes and coming back to remind it that I'm still trying to load the page it seems to have forgotten to load. I'm not exactly locked out of my email, but what the hell is going on?

FF 78.0.1 installed. Why is FF search now forcing a drop down list of these undesirable websites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. I never use these websites, I don't want to interact with them, I don't want to be told about them, I don't want to be directed to them. I don't want to be distracted with extraneous 'options' that divert my attention from the task at hand. This overrides my Preference settings. I already turned off or deleted all the alternative search engines "that appear below the address bar and search bar when you start to enter keywords." None of these new website additions are in that list.

Is there a simple way to get rid of this without monkeying around with internal settings? Company and public libary users are locked out of this.

PLEASE!!! Firefox is not doing anyone favors by forcing new features without warning or explanation in mandatory updates. We keep losing basic functions like the ability to see URLs in the address bar -which I do need - and then spend a lot of time trying to figure out why something unwanted like this started happening and whether it can be stopped.

MS Surface pen click opens wrong website

I am setting up a Surface 6 to replace a Surface 3 that has developed ailments. This is a problem that I found with the S3 and found a simple fix but was not smart enough to keep my notes. So now I get to solve it again.

With a web site displayed like cnn.com where there is a link at the top (CNN logo) there is a problem when a drop-down list of bookmarks covers that logo/link. When I click on a bookmark with the Surface pen, the click event goes instead to the page "underneath" the drop-down list and I go zooming off to that link instead of to the bookmarked link that I want.

I see this when using the Surface pen, not with a conventional mouse. The tablet is running in normal screen mode, not in tablet mode.

My recollection is that the fix was as simple as checking or unchecking a box but I can find nothing about it now and have no clue where the box might have been.

Using Firefox on Linus Mint

Before the latest "upgrade" there were two options relating to tabs "Close Tabs To The Right" and "Close Other Tabs" Now there is an options marked "Close Multiples Tables" which means I have to make an extra, painful and unneccesary click before being able to close tabs.

Is there a way to return it to how it should be?

For the first time in my computer history (24 years) this lockwise application is putting in passwords twice. It's rather annoying and I had to change a rather important password 3 times because of it, which is no easy feet. (had to call the institution, wait on hold....annoying). I opened lockwise and deleted the important passwords that had been saved.

Why is it doing that? It never used to. I like Firefox and I'm not leaving so that isn't up for discussion. I'll delete lockwise before that.

is there another password organizer for Firefox? or can this one be fixed?
