I have Brisbane Times (BT) as my home page on Firefox (which is my main browser). Since I installed the latest version of FF, I have to login manually (not automatically) to BT and having done so when I close an article it logs me out of BT. Firefox asks of if I want to make FF my home browser. I see that BT is one of my saved logins but this logging out etc is something that did not happen with the older version of FF. So please how do I permanently make FF my home browser and how do I get it to remember my login on BT when I flick between articles?

Hello, Body text does not show danish special letters æøå, but a "?" I only have this issue with 1 sender. I contacted the sender, and of course they claim, it's a problem with my email client. I have searched everywhere for at solution, but most posts are several years old, and Thunderbird has changed a lot since then. I have looked in preferences, under language and appearance, but anything I have tried, haven't helped. I have added pictures, one of the email body text, and one of with part of the source code i find relevant.

Some solutions mentioned in old posts, says to change the text encoding for incoming emails, but it is nowhere to be found in the preferences tab.

Hope someone can find a solution to this issue for me :)

Thanks

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

Double Left Click opens in new Reply Window/Draft?

Hi Guys

Been using Thunderbird for over 10 years and have archived emails since 2010. This same email account is on my Laptop and one other PC.

Since updating to latest version 9xxx and Windows 11 I'm having a nagging issue with one of my 3 accounts?

My Thunderbird Profile has 3 Accounts and Local Folders as well and has been coming along fine for many years until one of the latest updates or a possible click on my side changed something and I can't figure out what I did wrong and am pulling out my hair here.

Two of the Accounts are fine, yet my main account when you double click the email it opens in a new Reply/Draft Window without my signature. I want to open it in a new tab as I have done so all this time. I have gone through the settings and it appears that all the settings between the 3 accounts are the same.

To work around this issue I have to manually open the email in new tab by right clicking the email for its options, then save the attachment to my desktop and open it from there.

What am I missing here?

Hello !

I'm pretty new packager and i have to deploy Firefox ESR for 5000 users thought SCCM using a simple powershell scripts, copying files, configs etc..

With the latest 91 ESR one, I'm not abble to make the Browser auto checking the pop up anymore (see picture bellow). This pop up authorising Citirix Storefront to be opened with Citrix Receiver.

I thought it was the handlers.json ("receiver":{"action":4}}}) but it does not work : when the users will gonna update the browser, i'm afraid the will be lost with this popup.

Do you guys would know how to deal with it ?

A big thanks Rem

I run Thunderbird 91.3.2 on a Mac, OS is fully up to date. If I double click on a pdf or jpg or some such attachment it will automatically open the application assigned to it in the Thunderbird preference pane. However with a .doc, .docx, .ppt or .xlsx etc. Thunderbird keeps asking which application to open. Despite ticking the box "Always...." and despite the right settings in the preferences pane.

Any suggestions how I should go about fixing this?

I hate having all my draft email in one big jumbled pile. Email drafts go through stages that need sorting. I would use tags, but Thunderbird tags dont sync to k9 mail, which i use as part of these stages.

A solution I would like is to have subfolders within my "drafts" folder, to better manage the different kinds of email I need to send. However, when I tried this by creating the subfolders and moving the drafts into their respective draft folders and then went to edit the mail (without sending it), instead of saving the draft email in the subfolder it originated from, it saves in the "drafts" master folder.

This is annoying, if there is a draft email in a subfolder that lives under "Drafts", then when I go into that subfolder to edit the email (edit, not send), when I go to save the file it should save in the same subfolder.

But I could deal with that, I thought. I could just use "save as". but using the "save as" feature does not work. I navigate to the local directory where the email is stored (I use maildir), but I cant tell which file to over-write, as the file names are incomprehensible. and even if I just saved a new file, the new draft email does not appear in thunderbird.

If I just had two buckets of draft email I needed to send I could use the "templates" option, but I dont, I have four buckets of draft email that cant really be mixed (or rather, if I did mix them, it would not be any better then just having one big drafts foulder).

There's a social media website I want to get notifications for so that when I get a couple messages I can quickly respond, however I do not like how when I get a ton of notifications in a short time, it gets annoying and can block parts of the screen. I was wondering if there's any trick that could be done to limit notification frequency without disabling them entirely. I'm on Windows 10 if there's an OS specific solution.
