Hello, when I click on link with middle mouse button it will open that link on next tab but doesn't "jump" there, which is fine. But when I do the same with pdf links, it will automaticly "jumps" on the pfd file. And I don't want to. I want to open it like normal link (on next tab in background), because I have a lot of pdf files to open, and this makes it difficult to do it qucikly. Before some weeks this wasn't a probem, it started now.

Bes Regard, Josef

Hi I would appreciate some help.

I need horizontal lines between messages in the latest version of TB 102.

I've seen some stuff about adding a css file to a new chrome directory in my profile and changing a setting somewhere.

Can someone please tell me if this will still work in the latest version? I don't want to break something, being a bit of a novice.

Thanks

I woke up this morning and my tab bar on Firefox was out of control. I figured out how to shrink the tabs in about:config. However, there is a huge space at the end of the tabs that is completely unnecessary. I've been googling all morning. I tried to find compact mode--but "density" is gone, even when I go back into about:config and enable it. The only other help I found was to change the CSS code and unfortunately, that is outside my wheelhouse.

Is there ANY way I can get my old tab bar back so that the tabs fill the top of the screen as opposed to having a huge empty space at the end?

I've some search engines which was configured a lot of years ago (or maybe was imported from another browser many years ago). They are working in address bar (e.g. I can enter there "cve something", press Enter and get redirected to https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=something), but not listed neither in about:preferences#search nor in my profile's search.json.mozlz4 (I've unpacked and checked it - it contents does match about:preferences#search). I've tried to grep for "cvekey.cgi" in my profile folder but get no results (I suppose these "hidden" search engines are stored in some sqlite file).

I'd like to have these hidden search engines listed in about:preferences#search. I can even manually re-add them, but how can I find complete list of all configured search engines?

I previously used MS Entourage on Mac and migrated to Thunderbird as the best free alternative to what I missed from Entourage. However as my memory isn't that great it would be very useful to see if I have previously replied to an email, say that came in the last week or two. In Entourage a message displayed at the top of the email saying that if a reply had previously been made and it was hotlinked so a click would take you straight to that reply. Is that feature in Thunderbird and if not could it be added?

Thanks

I'm testing FF102 for rollout in September and working through various issues. The latest one I've come across is the edit bookmark "button" on the right of the URL bar. It's a blank space on the URL bar, and when hovered over is a highlighted blank space. After clicking it twice it displays the Edit book mark menu.

How can I remove it completely? I've look at about:config and nothing stands out as obvious to me controlling this and I can't find a setting for it.

The image below shows the highlighted blank icon space.

This code in userChrome.css worked in FF91 but only hides the icon in FF102.

#star-button { display:none !important; }


Thanks

Delivery format "auto-detect" does not work any more

The delivery format "auto-detect" does not work any longer on my desktop computer: I can still compose messages in HTML (set as the default), but they are sent only as plain text, although the delivery format "auto-detect" is used as usual. Only when I change the delivery format to "Send the message in both plain text and HTML", it works - but I now need to do that manually for each composed message - rather inconvenient. The problem is the same on all accounts.

This behavior started on 2022-07-06 just after I installed a new S/MIME certificate, but on my notebook I did that as well without getting that problem.

I tried various things which however all did not solve the problem. It seems to me that HTML composition works as normal, but at the end Thunderbird uses auto-detect and wrongly determines that it is not requiring HTML, and therefore sends out only plain text. That is even if I format some text, insert an image, have an HTML table in my signature, etc., which all clearly makes HTML necessary.

The problem seems to be related to my Thunderbird profile folder. When I run it with an older version of the profile folder (about 6 months old), the problem is not there. But I don't simply want to switch to the old profile folder, since it might be tedious to get everything to the new state (messages, certificates, other things which I would need to research). Or could I copy only certain files of the old profile folder to the new one? Would it be something in prefs.js (which has many changes between those versions)?

I am using the latest Thunderbird version (91.12.0 64 bit). My computer runs on Windows 10 Pro.

Since 29 July when I deleted permanently an unwanted message (which looked a phishing msg) all messages deleted are deleted permanently in that they don't show up in Trash. Previous instances of this problem (in 2015 & 2018) are advised to go to Account / Server Settings where there was an option to change the behaviour of message deletions - there's nothing in Server Settings in 91.12.0 that looks like that & I can't find any other way of reversing my choice made for the single one I did want permanently gone which looks like it's now set that way for all. (set-up as a POP server and running on Windows 10.) thanks

Many file types are no longer listed under Settings > Applications>Content Type at about:preferences#general. I used to be able to click on a file in an email like a Word or Excel document, and it would come up on my screen. Now Firefox asks me to Save them. I don't want to automatically save files without first looking at them. How can I get those file types in the Application list again?

I have attached a pic of the file types I have left to chose from. There used to be a lot more. How can I get back all the missing choices I have had there for years?

I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Hi,

I am testing v102esr of Firefox for a rollout in September.

One of this issues I have come across is the extremely high number of processes started when opening Firefox.

We have our own website run via Windows Server using IIS. The home page has no remote content - it's all local so I don't believe any remote content is being opened. There is only one tab open.

For each new tab I open I get at least one additional process. So with 10 tabs opened I ended up with 24 processes.

In FF91esr this was 3-5 processes. I also noticed under performance settings I can no longer specify the number of processes.

Is there any way to reduce this number to something more sane, like 3-5?

Also, why is there a Console Window Host running under Firefox?

Is the Node.js also new? I don't recall seeing it before

thanks

When printing double-sided from Firefox 103, the second page comes out upside-down. A previous thread 'Two-sided printing rotating on wrong axis' reported this problem for Firefox 85 / 86, and said that it was fixed by updating to the current version. I have the current version, but am getting the same problem. I have tried manually setting instructions to flip on long side (portrait orientation), but that doesn't work. Help!

Until FF100, I used to disable <Ctrl><W> (close tab) by modifying browser/omni.ja, commenting the following line out in chrome/browser/content/browser/browser.xhtml :

<key id="key_close" data-l10n-id="close-shortcut" command="cmd_close" modifiers="accel" reserved="true"/>

It worked until FF100, but doesn't work anymore in FF103 : commenting that line out seems to have no effect on <Ctrl><W>.

Does anybody know why ? Or does anybody know a way to disable <Ctrl><W> ?

Background : on French keyboards, the <W> key is right next to <X>, so when I try to do a cut/paste (<Ctrl><X> → <Ctrl><V>) I sometimes end up doing <Ctrl><W> by mistake, thus closing the tab. Re-opening the tab doesn't always do the trick, sometimes the latest work is lost.

I updated the windows 10 installation on my Toshiba satellite laptop yesterday, 07-31-2022 and when i opened Firefox after that, it was huge - I have to dial it down to about 70% on the zoom to have it display even somewhat normally.
