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!

SO, I had 2 windows and 11,678 tabs open. (I guess I hoard). Anyways, FF slow response times caused me to do a FILE/EXIT. (I've noticed after restart, my response times go back to normal).

While doing the FILE/EXIT, FF crashed. I was surprised by that. In the popup I selected RESTART. But, that crashed again. On the next popup dialogue box I selected QUIT. Then I opened FF again (after verifying all the processes in TASK MANGER had ended. That crashed. I again selected RESTART in the popup. Crashed again. Then selected QUIT. I clicked on FF to start, and this time the SAFEMODE popup appeared. I selected SAFEMODE - but that attempt crashed also. On the next popup I tried RESTART - and another crash. Finally, I tried SAFEMODE again, and FF is now running in safemode. I did notice it had 1 less tab - 11,677 now.

So, I read that if FF crashes during a SAFEMODE startup - it's likely not an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration issue.

So, I am in SAFEMODE right now. I don't know what to look for at this point. Can someone help me? Can anyone read the crash reports to see what my issue might be? Or give me other advice before trying to EXIT safemode and start FF again in normal mode?

The last several submitted FF crashes from today are below:

[Help]: Need help migrating an extension to TB 78

I have a very simple extension (close-on-escape-too: https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/addon/close-on-escape-too/?src=search) that's broken in TB 78. I've read through the migration docs but have no luck getting it to work with TB 78.

Is someone willing to help me with this? Since this extension is so small and simple, I'm guessing it would take a TB guru 5 mins or less to get it working.

Full disclosures: 1) I did not write the original code. I took the original code and made it work in TB 60 by converting it to a legacy extension, which no longer work in TB 78.

2) I am a C/C++ programmer by trade. Web programming (JS, CSS, etc) are fairly new to me.

I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on. But now it does the exact same thing I hate about chrome. It loads pages using cached css and javascript files. And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?

Why Mozilla-Developer-Network/MDN Needs Access Into My GitHub Or Google Account To Login !? & Why MDN Does Not Allow To Use Mozilla Account Based Login ? isn't it Violation Of Privacy ?

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

We're experiencing a problem wherein I hope the images can do the talking. Basically, forwarding certain HTML e-mails causes anything added in composition to be in a really tiny font (image 3). Even the part that says "Forwarded Message" also gets really tiny. I believe what's happening is that the content of the original message is set inside a table or something, and the body of the message as interpreted by Thunderbird is the boilerplate stuff at the bottom (image 4).

Although one can highlight the composition area text and hit the larger font size button, some users may find that awkward. Is there a configuration setting or add-on to ensure a minimum font size when composing in forwards?

Po aktualizácii Thunderbird z 68.12.0 na 78.2.2. nefunguje prijatie pošty jednej z mailových schránok. V Thubderbirde mám nastavené tri rôzne emailové schránky, po aktualizácii dve fungujú bez problémov. Jedná má problém s prijatím správ. Nestiahne aktuálne správy a nevypíše ani chybu. Správa sa ale odoslať dá. Skúsil som konto odstrániť a nastaviť nanovo a pri nastavení všetkých údajov Thunderbird konto nevytvorí a napíše "Thunderbirdu sa nepodarilo nájsť nastavenie pre Váš poštový účet". Skúšal som prihlásiť konto aj na iných mailových klientoch, tam všetko funguje bez problémov. Vopred ďakujem za pomoc, alebo radu.
