I have been trying to figure out a way to change the font sizes in Thunderbird 78.4.3. None of the "help" works. Font changing extensions are out of date. Help threads point to menu items that aren't there. Can't even find the "config.editor". My eyes just can't handle the small fonts anymore.What can I do?

The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

I have tried to change font-size, font-color and font family as default for the messages that i am sending in the preferences but it does not work.

So i tried creating two files 1 ) ~/.thunderbird/r4f28oqg.default-default/chrome/userContent.css

/* Body */ body { font-size: 12pt !important; color: #006FC9 !important; font-family:Arial, sans-serif !important; }

2) ~/.thunderbird/r4f28oqg.default-default/chrome/userChrome.css

/* Body */ body { font-size: 12pt !important; color: #006FC9 !important; font-family:Arial, sans-serif !important; }

I am not sure how it works, i just want my my fonts to be with these default settings when i type and they should be received with the same size, color at the receiving end.

I need to continue to use an application (Web Site) built with Flash Player for the first 3 months of 2021. Flash Player support ends on December 31st 2020. What is the plan at Mozilla in terms of restricting access to Flash Player in 2021? - For example, is there a timebomb in the browser so that Flash Player will seize to work on December 31st? - If not, would Flash Player become inaccessible following the first browser update in 2021? If yes, do we know when date is scheduled for approximately? - Will the behavior be the same for all Firefox versions (Light, Enterprise, iOS, Android, etc..). Thank you!

Can I Decrease White Space (Padding) Between Bookmark Items in FF89?

Is there some way to reduce the white space / padding between bookmark and menu items in the new Proton interface introduced in Firefox 89? I don't have a touchscreen and all the extra white space just means more scrolling to navigate through my bookmarks.

The AskVG site has a 02-June-2021 article at https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/ that explains how to disable all the new Proton interface changes in about:config, but is there one specific hidden preference / flag (e.g., browser.proton.toolbar.version) mentioned in that article that controls the spacing between bookmarks and menu items?

There is a also a companion article on AskVG titled https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-compact-mode-density-option-in-firefox-customize-window/ with instructions on how to change two Density options (browser.compactmode.show and browser.uidensity) in about:config, but I have no idea if changing my density setting to "Compact" would actually decrease white space (padding) between bookmark and menu items.

The sidebar that is brought up by clicking on the sidebar button normally shows whatever you choose on its dropdown menu (Bookmarks, History, or synced tabs). And it used to be, if you choose Bookmarks on that menu, it shows bookmarks the next time you open it. But since a few weeks, it is always showing History when clicked, even though I only ever use it for Bookmarks. Is there any way to stop this behaviour?
