I cannot copy anything from the Firefox browser. Copying works in every other application on my PC. Running Windows 11 Home and Firefox 126.0.1 (64 bit). I can copy things from other applications such as wordpad or Chrome and paste them into Firefox, but as I said, cannot copy anything from Firefox itself. Highlighting text in Firefox gives me the option to copy it, but when I do that and then try to paste it elsewhere, the paste option is grayed out. I have already tried a refresh of Firefox and a complete uninstall and reinstall. This issue has persisted for months, but today was the day I set aside time to fix it, and thus far I have failed. Please help me restore full functionality to Firefox!

I often copy a link from web, then open Thunderbird to send that link. Thunderbird will not accept the 'paste' until I have gone back to the source, copied again and returned to the (now opened) Thunderbird. Annoying and inefficient! How can I get Thunderbird to allow 'paste' from my clipboard on the first try?

I'm wondering why FF doesn't have something built into the browser that will resize text when you zoom in. Right now, if I zoom in on text, it DOES get larger, but then it also goes outside the edges of the browser so that I have to constantly scroll left and right to read the article I did come across an add on, but come on. This is something basic that should be build into the browser:

I only wish to sort email only from known vs. unknown domain sources into different folders. Is there a method to filter messages from @AnyDomainName where the domain is NOT found in entries of my address book? Specifically, this method would ignore the Sender Name and only scrutinize the domain.

I'm looking for a message filter function that will wait a specified period of time before performing what the rest of the filter does whatever it is tasked to do. For instance, I want to have an incoming message sit in the inbox until it moves to a local folder some time later. This would allow me to see it from a device that can't see local folders (like a mobile phone). I can't find anything in extensions. Any thoughts?

Windows 10; Firefox 126.0.1; DuckDuckGo search engine:

Drop-down suggestions a clever function, but entirely unwelcome in my universe. How to prohibit those?

The problem in DuckDuckGo search is that one cannot readily edit the original search word/phrase, as the suggestions take over that area; can't do a quick LnUp or LnDn, can't do a quick LeftArrow or RightArrow if a correction is needed -- the suggestions just decide to bully their way in at every inopportune opportunity.

I've changed whatever settings in Duckville that I can find, but it doesn't care what I need or think. I've changed the Firefox Search settings but that doesn't make any difference.

Any information/assistance out there?

Many thanks. Appreciated.

Hi, in my settings Firefox is set to "remember history", but there are no options for how long and when i look into my history, it doesn't go back further than a year. I found a few answers to this on some forums talking about the places.history.expiration.max_pages setting and others about the places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages setting but those don't exist in my Firefox and the threads are more than a decade old. I currently have version 126.0.1 64bit on Linux. How can i keep my history forever?

I have my inboxes set to display new messages at the top. When I open an inbox, Thunderbird scrolls to SHOW new messages, highlighted in bold, at the top. Or it used to.

Recently this behavior has become inconsistent. When I look at Thunderbird, one of my inboxes may show that there are new messages. So I click on the inbox, but no new messages appear in my list of e-mails. I then have to manually scroll up to see them.

Something definitely changed here.

I can see the case where maybe I've selected an old e-mail message WAAAY down the list. In that case Thunderbird should probably open to that point. Usually, if a message is selected, it's near the top. If that message AND newly arrived messages can be displayed on the same page, Thunderbird should scroll to the top and show me new messages.

Is this a setting that can be set?

I maintain a "Favorites" folder view as those are the folders I use 95% of the time and I have a very large number of historical folders I need to keep around but don't need very often. Trouble is, when I create a new folder, the creation dialog doesn't offer the option to make the folder a favorite so that it disappears after creation. I have to switch to the "ALL folders" view and then right click on the new folder and check the "favorite" box and then go back to favorites view.

It would make life so much easier if there was a favorite checkbox on the creation dialog.

Thank you.

Subfolders Expanding Too Quickly On Mouse Hover Over Main Folder *Still* A Problem

I saw a past thread claiming this problem has been fixed, but it definitely has not been fixed when it comes to dragging and dropping emails into a main folder.

Subfolders expanding (when hovering to drop/move an email) should be timed longer, and we need flexibility to time how many seconds it takes.

We need a way to set the timing of the expansion to only happen after 'x' seconds so we can manually adjust the timing.

Please fix this. It is really irritating and time consuming to have to constantly reclose subfolders.

thanks

Hello, it seems that cycling through tabs in most recently used order is not working for me. I am running version 126.0.1 on Windows and I have the "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recently used order" option enabled on my settings page. I have only noticed this issue in the past week or so, and so I am wondering if this feature is broken in the most recent release and if there is anything I can do to get the feature to work again until the bug is fixed in a future version.

I find no option to change that back to showing all the emails in date order like my other email accounts. The other posts on this topic that I can find are all for older versions that I don't see the commands for in my version.

Hello,

I work in a company and we are using Thunderbird for emails. The way me and my coworkers work is that we solving emails we get. BUT. There are two people always here on emails. One of them is taking ODD emails, the second one EVEN. For example I'm the ODD one, so every email that comes in odd time for example 8:31, 8:43, 8:47 etc., are mine and the other person who is EVEN one have emails like 8:30, 8:40, 8:52 etc. So if I make 2 folders one will be called EVEN and the other one ODD is there some way to filter these emails by time?

Thanks for your help and answers
