Firefox was recently changed where "Close Multiple Tabs" is now a drop-down that contains the option "Close tabs to the right" is there a way to eliminate the drop-down and just have the "Close tabs to the right" option available when right clicking a tab?

Pictures added. Thanks!

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

Hello,

I've seen this thread to customize some settings in Firefox but I don't think I've found what I need. So here's my issue : Some people in my company use a software which download JNLP file. I've found this support topic which solve my problem (I've tested with one user). But now, I'd like to spread the workaround via a GPO. I've downloaded the policy template v2.1 ('cause Firefox 79 is installed) but I can't figure out how I force the value to "True" for the browser.download.skipConfirmLaunchExecutable preference in the about:config panel. Is it supported or not yet ? Could anyone lend a hand please ? Thanks in advance.

I've noticed that the number of collections is limited to only 20. That low number itself is a pity. But adding the 21st and in consequence delete the oldest one from the 20 I don't understand and don't accept. Could you please issue an error message and state that a further collection is not possible due to having reached the maximum of 20. I should add that I noticed that behavior before I've registered for a Firefox account. Maybe people with and without an account are treated differently.

Best regards, Frank

Hello this is my first post here, after days of searching.

Thunderbird 78.2.2 on Windows 10 Pro v1909, does not download, at all, Gmail messages which have already been read in my iphone. This may have something to do with email marked as read by iphone. I can only download emails which have not been accessed by my iphone. Gmail messages which *have* been downloaded in my iphone, but have not been read, come up in my Thunderbird.

I have just reactivated the "Enable POP for all mail" setting under "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" setting in gmail.

This is becoming very troublesome, I'd very much appreciate assistance.

Thanks

Downloads Tab or option removed & "Save as PDF" also Removed in the Recent Firefox android Update! Removing Downloads option is not good by any mean, because how am i suppose to resume the paused file or a failed file due to network issue...? second point is about removing the " Save as PDF" Option where i was able to download a webpage as PDF. That was an awesome feature, which is now unavailable.

So, what are you going to do about this..?

This seems to be an old problem but nobody else has reported this in Thunderbird 78.2.2 as far as I can see. Trying to do MailMerge, which I have used literally hundreds of times in earlier versions, I put {{Email}} (or whatever) in the To: field, and it says:

No recipients were specified. Please enter a recipient or newsgroup in the addressing area.

This is obviously nonsense - the whole point is that MailMerge INSERTS the email addresses. If this can't be fixed, Thunderbird will be useless to me.

Recently Malwarebytes offered an Add-On for Mozilla Thunderbird. I added it.

Instead of improving the appearance of spam and such, Thunderbird immediately began presenting me with spam I had not seen before. (I began receiving spam that has appeared daily on my Android phone running AquaMail, that does not have a Spam Filter function.)

Thunderbird's Spam Filter function appears to have stopped functioning. A few moments ago I attempted to remove the Malwarebytes Add-On from Thunderbird. No such Add-On was found. What?

Can you shed light on this for me, and help me reverse whatever has happened?
