The Contacts Sidebar is blank when I write, reply to or forward an email. I have TB 91.3 running on Linux Ubuntu 21.1.

"Show Contacts Sidebar" shows a sidebar like in the attached image.

Please can someone help find a solution? I am not very technical so don't hesitate to explain in very simple terms. Assume I know nothing and you will be close to the truth.

My Google Contacts are linked to the Google Address Book by CardBook.

Firstly, I'm aware that large attachments may not copy to sent folder. For me, sometimes standard emails do not copy to sent. This issue has been around for ages now. You need to post a definitive solution to this FAQ - trawling through endless opinions to change this or change that is not useful. Is it a gmail issue? Is it NOT a gmail issue? If not, what is the fix? I'm running on Mac OS Catalina, 10.15.7 Thanks. Rory.

Good People, Followed screen pop-up to make Firefox default browser. Now all *.pdf files have Firefox icons and open as .html pages, I think! Seen some solutions, but for older versions of windows and followed procedure: go to Adobe, Edit, Preferences, General, 'Select Default PDF Handler', as dialog Does not have Adobe Reader XI, step two was Change to Adobe Reader DC, clicked continue, but NO Windows Configuration Screen appears. Using Version 94.0.2 (64bit) with Windows 10. Also, help answer said not necessarily a Firefox problem, also within Adobe Reader. Not comfortable with changes to be made in the registry. James

Thunderbird updated this morning and ever since my Wacom (intuos PT S) tablet has not been function properly with thunderbird, all other programmes are working normally with the tablet.

I have restarted thunderbird in Troubleshooting mode and that brought back some functionality but still having issues. Updated the tablet driver also.

the tap as click function is not working properly- its clicking things underneath the email window, or not responding to clicks at all, if I have a email window open it wont let me selected different folders.


Drag function not working in folders but will work intermittently in email window, have to click and hold to get scroll bar to work,

Any help would be appreciated

"Homepage and new windows" setting allows "Custom URLs" as an option. "New tabs" setting allows only "Firefox home page (default)" or "Blank page"

Why is there no longer an option in "New tabs" for a "Custom URL" ??

Is this just another of those program designers' decisions of a less-is-more "improvement" . . . ? Well, it's not.

How can I return to having my Homepage URL also designated for new tabs?

Thank you.

How I could disable the single message search (message open, press ctrl+F) from automatically going back to the top of message while searching a phrase from within single e-mail message?

Why I cannot get alert pop-up saying: "You reached the end of the message. Do you want to continue from top" and Thunderbird insisting on me selecting "yes" or "no"?

In other words, what advantage I or Mozilla gets from me missing the pale gray text "Reached end of page, continued from top" on white background while I'm trying to find the search phrase in certain context on my mail message?

when I click on a PDF on a website, Firefox does what is specified under Settings/Applications for "Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)". I prefer to open the PDF in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, but apparently, the browser prefers to save PDF files. When I save my preferences "open with Adobe Acrobat Reader", it does that, but the next day, it tries to save the PDF again. This has been so for a long time. An overlooked bug or a feature?

Hi,

I'm using Thunderbird 91.3.2 (32-bit) running in windows 10.

Just before (or during) the update to this version the reply all button disappeared from my message panel. I can add one to the top most pane (next to the panes) but not to the message panel where it was before.

I've tried rebooting in safe mode and have it "replace" (mine is not the english version so I don't know the english word) toolbars and controls and also tried to disable all the extras to no use. I've disabled all the extras manually and no luck.

When I use my right mouse near where the button used to be nothing comes up. Nor when I use the right click in any other button in the message panel.

Is there anything else I can do?

Ah, yes, this being windows I logged out of my session and logged back in.

Thank you for your help.

Hey guys.

My question is very simple: how can I hide the Firefox 94 address bar on any screen size, including full screen?

I have been searching the internet for an answer, even in previous versions, the answers and suggestions were never clear. Including nonsense add-ons.

Is there any placement of moz://a? Does anyone have a tip that might actually work?

Thank you very much.

I'll explain by means of an example.

When I send a message, both Thunderbird and my email service allows me to alter the 'from' address. I place an underscore character after my id and some chosen text.

So, I send FredCo an email message from this address: [my id]_fredco@[my domain].co.uk .

FredCo replies to the same address (and possibly stores email address).

My email delivery service recognises the address format and delivers FredCo's message to me. Because of the address format, I can see that the message is from FredCo.

(If I receive a message with that address from someone else, I know that FredCo has released my email address.)

Now when I reply to FredCo's message, the 'from' address defaults to my basic id, [my id]. And that's the problem.

I want it to default to [my id]_fredco because if I forget to change it, FredCo will record a new address, and I won't be able to detect whether FredCo has passed that email address to some other organisation.

OK, I could set up a new id for use with FredCo, but I would need dozens of similar ones - one for each person or company I contact.

Is there a solution to this problem or an add-on that will achieve this?

I am having trouble opening a page from autohotkey. Half the time, my run command causes Firefox to issue a message that it must be closed in order to open the page. "Firefox is already running. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." I think this is somehow related to which profile is to be used. I have insured, from profile-manager, that my current and desired profile are one and the same. I do not include the profile parameter in my RUN command.

I run FF 88. I don't think that matters. As a possible solution, I installed a PORTABLE version of FF94. Same problem still occurs. I was very careful to make sure each has separate PROFILE folders etc.

I am baffled as to how to fix this. It only started a month or two ago. I don't know what triggered it. I don't think it was any particular FF update, because I DO NOT ALLOW automatic updates and perform updates only every 6 months or so.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

For my work, I need to paste a lot of links into text (on a website which is probably somewhat poorly programmed), and when I select some text and hit ctrl+k to create a hyperlink, Firefox doesn't recognize that it's a text box and "takes over" the ctrl+k function, focusing on the search/address bar instead of allowing me to insert the link. (The reason I blame the website is that other websites, like Jira, work fine for this)

Is there a way to disable the ctrl+k functionality in firefox? I've seen a couple old threads on disabling various shortcut keys but I don't know what the "Focus Search bar" key would be called in either the Browser Console or configs.


Thank you!!
