Getting empty emails when I use TB filters on gmail accounts to copy emails to local folders

I have several gmail accounts, which I can successfully access through TB. I have been trying to set up filters for each of the gmail accounts to 1) copy email based on the filter criteria to a Local folder in TB 2) move the email to the gmail trash folder

So for example, I might have a Local folder for "Newsletters", and will have a filter for each gmail account that would move appropriate emails from that account into the Local "Newsletters" folder.

This works to some extent - however, I often get just headers with no information at all, but the gmail would get correctly moved to the account's trash folder. I tested this and found that if I sent several emails matching a "test" filter to any of the gmails and then opened that gmail's inbox to trigger the filter (set to "apply filter when getting new mail") , the first email would be copied correctly, but all the following emails would show up with only the header being copied. I don't have any anti-virus scanning Tbird emails, and I have synchronization on. I turned off the "apply filter when getting new mail" and just left "run manually" on, and sent more emails. Running the filter manually works correctly, and all emails are completely copied into the local folder.

I tried various ploys, including putting "stop filter execution" as the last action, to slow down the running of the filter when it's in "auto" mode, but nothing changed the result. So there's some timing issue going on, and it has to do with there being multiple emails being processed by the same filter.

If anyone has any suggestions on dealing with this, I'm all ears.

Thanks, K

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

There does not seem to be any simple way to increase the display font size in the Thunderbird Message List Pane. There is an archived discussion of this issue at Thunderbird font size but the writer refers to an “Open Finder” button which does not exist on the Troubleshooting Information tab (there are two Open Folder buttons). Also, his suggestion requires replacing a key file in the Thunderbird profile folder, which could cause problems. Any ideas or suggestions will be much appreciated.

I am currently on FF88. It seems that every time there is an update, the font gets smaller and smaller.

I have been able to adjust the global fonts easily.

With all available extensions not available anymore, there is no way to customize fonts for tabs, bookmarks or toolbars.

I have to move in so closely to navigate around FF. I hate to ask for something this simple, please provide a option.

I am not able to do code, so that's out. Not really excited to move permanently to another browser but I might have to. Was able to adjust the above items easily.

This has been an ongoing issue for FF.

Will this every be addressed? Thanks

I don't know what version I have now because the drop-down "About Thunderbird" doesn't work. Neither does the drop-down "Options".

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

Alternatives for Buggy "Take a Screenshot" Menu in Firefox 88

I understand that there's this help page, but a lot of times site developers right click and hotkeys disabled for security reasons and this renders me unable to take a screenshot of a website.

I've also tried to add "Take a Screenshot" button from "Customize Toolbar" option to my toolbar, but most of the time it is disabled, even on support.mozilla.org page. To enable it, I need to remove it and re-adding it again with "Customize Toolbar" option.

Is there any way to re-enable "Take a Screenshot" option in 3-Dot menu? If not, is there any sane way to keep "Take a Screenshot" enabled for the rest of my Firefox session without me needing to remove and re-add it again everytime I need to take a screenshot?

Hey, I want to make the UI slightly larger; I have found that modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config works the way I need it to. However, when using multiple screens with different resolutions, the scaling no longer appears consistent between those screens. That would make sense (since it's a per-pixel configuration), but I couldn't any configuration option that only acts as a modifier for the standard scaling mechanism. I'm using macOS (10.15.7), Firefox 88.0. Attaching a screenshot taken from both screens together (not sure how macOS handles the difference in resolution when handling screenshots, there's definitely some magic going on with macOS screenshots in general; either way, it shows the problem really well).

There are many mssages found in "Spam" filters aare customzed and work. Standard settings are used as "run manually" and "run before Junk recogniozing". Fact is that it works manually only. Why? And: In the maun dialogue the pull-down is set to "run in inbox". because it should run _before_ marking as junk. When I opern the main filter dialogue this is cahged to the actual folder (feature?). Nevertheless it should run before put into the folder "Spam"...

I just bought a Chromebook from Verizon for when I go out of town. I want to install Thunderbird on it, which I did, but I can't set it up. I found a video in your support on how to set it up with gmail, but the initial screen that is shown, is not what I see. I get a screen to enter my name, email and password, but it goes nowhere. It accepts my password, but the window remains - no next button. Thanks, Ken
