Hello.

I am very happy with Thunderbird and would prefer not to switch to another program.

I just got myself a new computer and then this problem occurred... The threads come up in my emails and I do NOT want that to happen. It makes the overview of the emails unclear and very confusing. And I do not see clearly if I have read them or not.

I have searched and searched a lot online to find out... but have not succeeded. (my son also tried..)

So I am wondering how I can have the emails coming up one by one (like before), without having the threads..?

The screenshot shows how the email come up for me in Thunderbird, I would like them to come "one by one" without the threads..

Would appreciate your reply!

All the best, Anne Berit Olsvik

Hello community, As soon as firefox 106.0.2 finished installing itself i was greated with some nice new color schemes to choose from, and also some other settings regarding accessing content and tabs from other devices, retrieving closed tabs and so on.

All my menu texts are so TINY now, that I can't read them, but the browser page is SO WIDE that I can't ever see a whole page and I have to scroll from side to side to read things, which is a ROYAL PAIN as I miss seeing a lot of things. No one can seem to help. I tried the limited percentage things, 67% used to work but now that is too big and when I go smaller I can't read ANY of the text, it is TOO TINY! I can't do my work! The screen shot won't paste on here.

I have a working FF installation with a group of tabs. I have a Pale Moon installation with its own group of tabs, I would like to stop using PM and install a 2nd FF installation to a unique program folder so it has its own unique profile, so I can import the bookmarks, tabs etc, from PM, which will let me have 2 FF browsers open at the same time, loaded with two different sets of tabs.

I read that if I install a 2nd FF to a unique *program folder by **entering that during the install, setting this up would be straightforward. So I downloaded a FF installer, ran it, and it installed FF without asking me where I wanted to install it!

Can I force the FF installer to give me the option of selecting a custom program folder?

Running version 102.4.2 (32-bit).

Is there a way or an add-on / extension that would allow me to highlight words or sections of received emails? Not outgoing, don't really care about those; just the already received ones? I work with a lot of Zoom meetings across time zones, and flub meeting times occasionally; I'd like to be able to highlight (or even just bold/italicize) a time or sentence in a received email to make it less likely that I'll get the time wrong. Thanks!

I was trying to move it and I accidentally deleted it. I would like to reinstall it. I cannot seem to find the right phrase to find it on your sight and do a reinstall. If you would be so kind to point me in the right direction,I would be most grateful. Little updates like this is why I have remained a loyal fan since the Netscape Navigator days.

Thank you for your time.

Is there a way to disable the new tab button's container context menu? The menu pops up when the new tab "+" icon is right clicked, as well as when left click is held down for one second on the "+" icon. I've disabled everything in about:config that contains the word "container" and that did not remove the context menu. I do not use containers and do not want that context menu popping up when I accidentally do one of the two things that trigger it. I've included a screenshot of what I want to disable and circled it in red.

Firefox version 106.0.1

Thanks!

Hi there. First, thanks for your time. Next, I'm a newbie with Thunderbird (and a bit of an IT weakling). Have gradually been setting it up to work for me. I have multiple email addresses, folders and subfolders. About half my emails have attachments. I've managed to backup the Profile info by exporting a copy of the folder onto an external HDD. Now I want to backup all my emails including folders, subfolders and attachments. I have managed to download ImportExportToolsNG as an add-on. 1. I've read somewhere that ImportExport doesn't export attachments? 2. Which is the best ImportExport option for me to use? I don't understand the difference between the different options in the menu (eg, Export All Folders, vs Export All Folders with Structure, vs Backup). I've read somewhere that some of these options don't link attachments to their emails or don't copy the full email message - as you can see I don't really understand what I'm reading. I would like to be able to double check what I have in the exported copied folders. And I want to be able to restore all emails, their attachments and settings if my Thunderbird crashes. 3. I do use Acronis True Image 2016 to backup my PC onto external HDD but I don't know how to check and see if my emails are on there. If they are, will I be able to restore my Thunderbird emails and settings if for some reason they crash? TIA.

Greetings!

I would like to be able to open selected links via the search tool with CTRL + Enter, like it is possible on most browsers. Basically, I do CTRL + F, select a text which brings me to a link I was looking for, and do instantly CTRL + Enter to open this link. Currently, this shortcut only toggles the ability to see all matched texts and doesn't open the link.

Do you know if it's possible? Thank you!

I happen to be a poor typist and have had to disable a lot of keystroke-combinations in my ~/.vimrc because of this. There's some combination that causes my "compose" window to disappear (likely ctrl+shift+return, from looking at related posts). At least the partial-message shows up in the Outbox folder where I can resurrect it. It took me awhile to figure this out, I had been re-entering the messages. Is there some way for me to disable this "feature", though? I have absolutely no use for it. This is with thunderbird 102.4.1 (64-bit). It doesn't look like I have an explicit "Send later" extension enabled.

Hi folks, I had a problem with this back in June 2021 when my previously black background to the menu bar (bookmarks etc) changed to a washed out grey. Chris Ilias and dbben both replied, and Chris sent me a video guide on how to install Photon Colours, which fixed the problem, thanks. However, today the same problem has re-occurred - ie grey background. Unfortunately, when I checked in the Themes menu I found that Photon Colours is no longer there. Grateful if you could tell me if there is a new fix for this so that I can re-instigate the black background to the toolbar. Many thanks Chris

Hello!

I have been using this userChrome.css code to hide the tab bar if there is only one tab (on Windows):

tab:only-of-type, tab:only-of-type + #tabs-newtab-button {

   display: none !important;

}

#tabbrowser-tabs, #tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox, #tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox {
   min-height: 0 !important;

}

Since one of the recent Firefox updates, this code does no longer work. Maybe because there is a new element in the tab bar: A drop-down list at the right.

Any idea how to make the above code work again?

Is there any way to achieve the above? Maybe with a plugin of some sort? Thanks!

Explanation (if you had any questions why this feature would be needed at all): This is a great way of sorting/viewing your emails by people rather than individual emails, while also maintaining the sorting of emails by date:

- it shows whom you received an email last, thereby allowing it to be your default view,
- keeps your inbox clean and neat, automatically, 
- makes it easy to see what is important and what is not,
- implements better threading (because threads based on subject lines fall apart very quickly),
- separates commercial emails from emails from friends and family without filters, and
- allows for very quick cleaning and organizing of emails, if you wanted to put them in folders or delete them. 

Some email clients implemented such feature in the past, sadly they are no longer available, not available for Linux, or no longer supported (Poco Mail for Windows, or Unibox for Mac, for example).

Thunderbird is the most full-featured email client today, with many plugins available, and I was hoping there was a way to do this, but if it exists, I did not find it myself.

I have several filters set up to automatically organise certain automatic emails which I do not need to read, but do need to save, into folders. The filters are set to be active when 'Getting New Mail', however they are not acting as I'd expect.

When I receive new mail, and it downloads mails which should be filtered, they appear in my inbox - they are not filtered. If I press 'Get messages' then the filters are applied and the emails are moved from the inbox to the various folders. If I don;t press 'Get Messages' then they sit in my inbox, clogging it up with spam. But this isn't really applying the filters upon 'Getting New Mail', it's actually more like manually applying the filters, because I have to hit the 'Get Messages' button for the filter to apply, or wait for the next scheduled time that mails are downloaded from the server.

Is there a way to get the filters to be applied immediately that they are downloaded, triggered automatically by them being downloaded in the first instance.

As an aside, I know that filters can be run on a scheduled task every 10 minutes, but that's not a good workaround in my circumstances.
