HI! Could you tell me please how can I prevent this popup message? Is there some browser vendor supported way to do it using JavaScript or we have just only possibility to do it by editing Firefox browser setting 'dom.disable_beforeunload = true' on each browser client? As an app developer I need to disable this notification popup for all users at once. Thanks!

I used an email address crawler a few years ago, but it has not been maintained for some years. I could point it at a folder in my inbox and it would extract all of the email addresses into an address book. That meant I could sort my emails into folders and then create an address book for everyone in a particular folder. It would include all the CC'd addresses as well as the sender. It also meant I could resort the emails using different criteria and then create new address books which matched the new criteria. A very useful add-on.

I'll admit, I'm a new user to Firefox for Android, however I do believe I am doing everything wrong when downloading and activating themes. I press the install button, confirm that it may install the theme on the pop-up and verify in the add-ons that the new theme is enabled and all other ones disabled. I've closed and force closed the browser too and it doesn't work. I just want a damn dark theme to start working!

How to restore address bar behavior and line height in 75.0?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.

I am on windows 10, and just updted to the 64 bit beta of Thunderbird.

For some reason the email BG color is not set to Black, and I can't change it. If I change the BG to white in new email window, it reverts back to black next email. If I change the composition background color, it seems to have no effect.

My email BG in the email viewer pane defaults to black, and new messages default to black. I can't seem to change this.

Can anyone help me? I have also tried reeseting to default theme, picking a white theme, nothing changes this.

Hi Everyone,

I've recently updated the FF for Android from version 68 to 79 and I'm at odds with some of the UI redesign decisions. One of which is the presence of "Collections" block at the home screen. I have no intention to use this feature and would like to remove the placeholder. Is there a setting for this?

It's really difficult to figure out which versions support which Add-ons.

I have two computers that are running 52.9.1 and that works, but if there is a newer version that supports add-ons I would use that instead.

  1. The biggest one I need is AttachmentExtractor, which saves attachments with the correct timestamp.
  2. I've also always used Junquilla to help catch things that Gmail has incorrectly flagged as spam.
  3. Also QuoteAndComposeManager for formatting my replies, though the necessity of that may have changed in later versions, I don't know.
  4. Check and Send is nice for blocking me from accidentally doing a Reply All to the wrong addresses.

I tried using the latest version while working from home, but after the latest upgrade to 78.0 it's completely unusable, no add-ons are supported and I can't even read emails, because it has a dark on dark theme that can't be disabled, so it's time to ditch this experiment and go back to what works.

Hi,

I have come across this answer as to why youtube page gets randomly updated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1246764#question-reply

After checking all my settings, I couldn't find any add on or extension containing "high-definition" words in it. My only extention in firefox is ublock origin.

Any idea why the updates continue to take place? Can ublock origin cause it? Or has there been a browser update that could cause it?

Many thanks in advance,

Text in email is the wrong colour. I can only read them if I highlight the text.

Recent windows and Thbird install so no add ons. The text stays the same light grey colour between the 3 themes that come with Thbird.

Is there an about:config option to change to fix this or something?
