Hello. I recently moved from windows to Linux Mint, and noticed the behavior of the Picture in Picture window is different when resizing. On windows, the aspect ratio is kept. while on Linux, it is free form, making these black bars around the video, so I have to resize it very carefully to not show any black bars.

How can I make the PiP on Linux behave like on Windows? That means resizing keeping the aspect ratio.

Attached are the comparisons between Windows and Linux Mint.

Thank you very much!

After upgrading to Thunderbird 102.8.0 (64-bit), the Forward Mail button in the toolbar is no longer available in "Customize". The Forward button (as in forward-and-back, not what I need) is still there, but it's greyed out. I've gone through the reset process in "Customize", put everything back on the toolbar, but the problem persists. What's next? (This supersedes the similar question I sent a few minutes ago, before I realized that there are 2 kinds of Forward buttons)

This again!

This was resolved about a year ago; now the problem is back, as of updating to Firefox 113.0.1 this evening.

Initially post-update the close tab button was in a weird, random place on the tab bar. I have adjusted the margins to put the button back where it's supposed to be!

I changed :

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 2px !important;
}

to:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 35px !important;
}

to move the button back onto the left. That may seem like a drastic change but that's the lowest value I could find which produced the result I want.

However, it's not quite the result I want! As of updating to 113.0.1, the tab title itself now disappears altogether on hover.

I have tried to correct this in CSS using the .tab-text and .tab-label attributes, but without any luck so far.

Can anybody help me with this, before I'm forced to downgrade to Firefox 112?

Better yet... how about we just make this an option in Settings, as it should be?!

Hide Tab bar if there is only one tab

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?

Why is it that I am not able to search for this email when using an exact phrase that is in the email body? The normal searching works, but I don't use that because the threaded mode is bugged and it seems like another "wontfix" issue. Why is it that mozilla software is so buggy and the bugzilla mods would rather just lock your posts than address these issues?

I'm trying to change my pop3 account to imap to sync with my aol.com account. I've gone through the process of setting up a new account in TB and added the aol IMAP and SMTP settings, but the "checking password" at the top of the page never goes away. I'm using the same password that I use to access aol.com from the web.

There must be some secret that I'm missing. Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Hello dear Mozilla (or should I say Thunderbird) crew and community,

After some twelve years of using Thunderbird (TB) on an extensive scale I decided to finally move over from MS Outlook (OL) (and Windows) all the way. Two weeks ago I started converting my major offline mail boxes (5000+ emails) from OL to TB (using export-to-MSG-files + convert-files to-EML + import-to-TB). Everything goes as planned and flawless, so far. I also was able to export/import my address book (contacts list) into TB version 91.10 without any problem. Today I accepted an upgrade to version 102.3. It looks good, I like the color support on the folders and the sleek interface. But when I open my address book I don't see how to order my contact list by 'Bijnaam' (the dutch field name; 'Nickname' I guess it is in English). I use this field to order my contacts by area of mutual interest. Is it possible to add this field again in the TB version 102 address book list of fields displayed (so that I can order by it)?

Thank you in advance for your help or suggestions,

Unfortunately, I downloaded “SaveFrom.net Helper” without reviewing it.

Since downloading it I have been receiving a alerts from “McAfee WebAdvisor” about “dangerous pages blocked”.

I was able to remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” add on in Firefox, but am unable to remove the “Savefrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my normal Firefox Bookmarks.

I can no longer easily see my Firefox Bookmarks and have to keep opening the Firefox Application Menu, then select Bookmarks, then select Manage Bookmarks in order to see my bookmarks.

Can you please advise how I can safely remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my Firefox Bookmarks.

When Thunderbird upgraded to Supernova I lost all formatting for text in emails and signature block.

I've tried saving various fonts and recreating work signature block but nothing seems to work. The font that continues to appear is a basic courier style.

I've saved a pdf of various emails, with the first few being the current view I get and that recipients would see. The second last page is a copy from a previous "sent" email with my signature block, and the last page with a "reply" ready to go to that 2nd last page where the loss of formatting is very obvious. I would like to upload these but I'm not able to as it is not an 'image" file.

Any help to try and work out what has happened and how to fix it would be very much appreciated.

Cheers.

It is annoying when a redesign of Thunderbird (Supernova) says it gives maximum customization options, but in fact moves something - the Thunderbird/Application Menu icon (hamburger button) - whose position apparently can't be customized!

How can I move the Application Menu (three-bar, hamburger menu) from the right hand side to the left hand side in Thunderbird 115.2.2?

The following CSS code (inside userChrome.css, inside a newly created chrome folder in my profile) works for my Firefox program, but apparently does not work for Thunderbird 115.

/* Move the APPLICATION MENU, 3-bar button, to the left & change its color */

#PanelUI-button {
 order:-1 !important; 
 color: yellow
 }

Can anyone please tell me what the CSS code is to move the position of the Thunderbird/Application Menu? Many thanks, Rick
