I use Last Pass for passwords & it's worked in the past on Firefox. After updating Firefox, the Last Pass extension in by toolbar is black - in the past I would click that, open the Last Pass page to sign in, then the icon turns red and functions. Now when I click the icon a frozen page comes up that never loads. I can sign in to the Last Pass webpage, but that doesn't turn on the extension.

Any advice appreciated - thanks!

Hello Thunderbird At the recent automatic update of Thunderbird, key preferences that I need have been obliterated. One of these preferences is actually a critical requirement for me. I cannot read my email messages – since the update. I cannot see them now. Previously, I was able to set the text box background to black and the text to white. Now no matter what I do, I cannot change the updated Thunderbird to my preference. The received message text box is fixed. It displays a white background with black text only. The white background is a blast of glaring light that blinds me. It washes out the black text so that I cannot read the message. Please help me with this issue knowing that I have gone into Preferences and I am not able to cause a change no matter that I have set the background, text, and highlight colors that I want. Thank You. A faithful, longtime and grateful Thunderbird user.

My Thunderbird account has two email addresses associated with it. I would like to set up incoming email alerts for only one email address but there are no advanced options in which to select this option. Instead, I get email alerts for both accounts. Kindly advise how to fix this issue so that I only get the alerts for the preferred email address. Thank you!

Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

Hello,

Quite à few month ago, after update, my new Firefox for Android does not allow me to access to the print option. I cannot find the page nor the tools options using my mobile. When using edge, chrome or other browser, I still do have this option and therefore able to print pdf copies of the resources I do want to archive. Is it possible to know why these printing options are unaccessible on Firefox using Android ?

Hi,

I use Mendeley Web Extension to pull articles and other things from Firefox directly into my Mendeley library. I will usually rapidly read through the PDF file online before deciding to add it or not. For some unknown reason, Firefox blocks the use of Mendeley on PDF file, for security reasons, and I can no longer add them to my library. Most references are only available as PDF files making the add-on completely useless. Is there a security feature that I can disable to be able to use the extension again?

Kind regards,

Mathias

I've been using Thunderbird for a long long time and have always had many imap accounts setup, including a Yahoo Mail account.

As of just the other day (I believe Tues, June 7, 2022), suddenly and unexpectedly, Thunderbird 91.10.0 (64-bit) began showing ALL of my mail folders in the Yahoo account on the server, when I have always had many folders hidden (in unsubscribed state).

I have Thunderbird installed on 4 computers, and, as I launched TB on each of them, the displayed Yahoo folders updated to all folders on each computer (I had originally set up my profile on one computer and then later copied it to each of the others).

When I go into the TB yahoo account settings to re-unsubscribe and apply the settings and then restart TB, all folders remain showing... I cannot seem to get TB to once again unsubscribe to the folders I'm not interested in seeing in TB.

For reference, other imap accounts I have configured in the same profile remain with the same subscribed/unsubscribed settings I've always had.

If anyone has any ideas or explanations or a recommended fix, I'm all ears! ty!

I have, very reluctantly, had to stop using Windows Live Mail, because gmail will no longer support it. It was a great email program and it did everything I needed. Thunderbird would seem to be the nearest thing I can find to replace Live Mail - but there seems to be some quite staggering basic functions that are missing from it. Maybe I'm alone in wanting to include a picture or two in my emails..? - not as attachments, but as part of 'the visual letter', within the text? Live Mail must be 20 years old at least - but in Live Mail I could insert an image; drag the corners to resize it; add a box rule if I wanted to; and send it on it's way. In 21stC Thunderbird I can, with many a dialogue box, insert an image... but even when I've worked out how to 'resize it', it doesn't actually reduce the file size of the image sent..! So a 7MB image, when 'resized' to something less than 1MB... still actually gets transmitted as a 7MB image - and takes forever! So my question is. How come an ancient, now almost defunct program like Live Mail, is twenty times more agile and user-friendly than 'up-to-date' Thunderbird? And before anyone mentions 'add-ons' - Live Mail did all of this straight out of the box! No 'add-on' searching or anything else required. But maybe including a picture or two in an email is a fairly revolutionary concept? With thanks for your thoughts.

Hi! There are multiple recent threads on this issue, and not one of them has a solution, so I'm asking again. I want to increase the font size of the top header text, specifically the bookmarks toolbar, search bar, and tab titles. The text is too small for me to read. It would also be useful if I could increase the font size for the applications menu (the hamburger drop down menu in the far right of the header).

I do not want to increase the size of anything else, so changing layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is not the solution. I have changed my global zoom settings, and set them specifically to "Zoom text only", but this setting does not effect the bookmarks toolbar or the search bar. Changing the default font size also does not increase the size of this text.

Just to clarify again, these threads are not solutions to my question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214027 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293358

I received a new laptop and installed Thunderbird 102 on it. I downloaded Quicktext 5 and installed. When in the main screen there is a quicktext logo top right, but nothing happens when I click it. When I compose new email there is no quick text list or menu and if I go to tools, quick text is not in the menu. Under addons I can see it in the list but it is not working at all. I tried to remove it, but it just stays there, it does not go away.

hi there,

so far i was lucky with tb 102 as for me it "just works" as before, _but_ it seems that "sort by ... threaded" is now the default setting for folder views which i personally hate.

as i have "millions" of folders I don't want to switch every single one of them to "unthreaded" manually.

unfortunately i didn't find a setting within the ui that allows to change the setting generally being effective for every folder.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1377304 but it didn't work.

so i tried that: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293255 but setting mailnews.default_view_flags from 1 to 0 didn't work.

do i need to change another setting as well? maybe add "ShowExpanded" as well? but i'didn't understand how to do this: "the second group of values can be added to one of the first group to combine effects"

maybe i also have to change the setting "mail.folder.views.version" - to which value?

is it actually possible with new tb 102 to generally change the new default view "sort by ... threaded" to "sort by ... unthreaded"?

help would be very much appreciated; thanks a lot! :)

I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.
