After the most recent update to Firefox 93.0, I could not open any links at all. It was OK in troubleshooting mode, so I went through and disabled all of my add-ons one-by-one. Once I disabled uBlock Pro, links opened. But I need uBlock Pro! Is there a workaround or another option?

I'm 78 years old and have great difficulty reading the message list and other features of Thunderbird because the font is so small. This seems like a basic change that should be easy to make but I can't find a way to increase the size. If there isn't, there should be. [Control + does NOT work.]

I've been scouring the web for an hour now trying to figure out how to add the HOME BUTTON (sounds important doesn't it?) to the toolbar but I can't find any helpful articles. Not from the community and definitely not from Mozilla. So, how do I restore the HOME BUTTON, keeping in mind there is no CUSTOMIZE FIREFOX option in the settings drop-down menu?

Drop Down Menu Selection Highlight Color Help

Hello Hive Mind. I upgraded to Thunderbird Version 91.1.2 (32-bit) and am having a bit of a problem with my drop down menu colors. I am using a Thunderbird Theme and changing that does not change my issue.

Initially, I had an issue with the background color on my drop down menu's being displayed as black and the text as white, despite my Windows theme selection being light. The drop down menu would also show a gray shadow over the text when I hovered the mouse pointer over that selection, before I made it. (helped to make sure I wanted to choose that particular option)

I have solved part of my issue with some additions to my userChrome.css file, and am now able to see a lighter background on the drop down menu and a different text color of my choosing. However, I cannot figure out how to make the selection highlight (hover) color change, so I can make sure I have made the correct choice from the menu. (In the Before photo, it would be the grey color over the menu item. In the After picture - same selections - I cannot see a separate hover color highlighting my selections)


This is what I put in my userChrome file to make the changes to the background color and text color:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

/* change color of background in menus and toolbars */ menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,popup > menu, popup > menuitem {background-color: whitesmoke !important;}

/*change font color of popup menus*/ menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,popup > menu, popup > menuitem {font-weight: bold !important; color: royalblue !important;}


I am a beginner with understanding .css code and may have ventured too far into uncharted water. Any help would be appreciated! Robin

I recently updated to Mac OS Big Sur, and completely deleted and rebuilt my thunderbird profiles because they were taking >50 GB of space. I'm now on 94.0b1, and struggling with a few things (I can't figure out how to sync contacts with gmail either). One thing that's really puzzling is that I haven't figured out how to stop messages being marked as read. I've restarted TB in troubleshooting mode, checked and unchecked the box for automatically marking as read many times, and don't know what else to try. Thanks!

For every printing project, I want to use the full range of options presented by my printer. With the new set up I have to take the time to select "system dialog" for every document printed. I print hundreds of pages each week, and they are not in bulk.

[I know, print less -save the forest.  Can't.   Too many small documents.]

How do I change settings such that "system dialog" is my automatic choice when printing?

Some people have ideas about simplification which actually make it more difficult for others.

Since a recent update, not sure which one, the Contacts Sidebar has spaced the contacts out, so that fewer show when I am composing a message.

I am presuming that there will need to be a css tweak to bring them back together, as there was for the folder pane.

Could anyone please supply the code required to reduce the padding between the contacts? I have had to become familiar with using the userChrome to make any sort of reasonable fixes to Thunderbird and Firefox, and do not need the instructions on how to set them up.

Just have to say, requiring this level of computer knowledge to correct every little change on a frequent basis is really not the way to please the users of a program.

Thanks for any help supplied, Fiona

I was trying to increase the size font on the browsing tabs and accidentally typed in 23 and now the entire browser screen is zoomed in so large I can't even scroll or undo what I've done. I had to do a force quit of the the browser. I tried deleting Firefox and reinstalled and it now still loads with zoomed in font. I can't even use Firefox as my browser. Matter of fact I'm having to submit this question on a different browser. Please advise.

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

Just upgraded from 78 to 91.1.2 and cannot connect to my Box account. I have installed the Add On called FileLink Provider for Box (actually I already had it from prior version but it would no longer work). Then I go to Preferences, Attachments, add Box to the list of providers and it has a yellow triangle with exclamation point. To the right I click on the grey box that says "Connect your Box Account" and nothing happens. I have separately logged into my Box account using Firefox but see no option there either. Is something broker in 91 or am I missing something?

Thank you.

I have already scoured through support forums but haven't found a right response unfortunately. I have already changed font settings and sizes in config editor to get my preferred look and feel for menus, folder list and message list - looks great (using roboto font) however I still have a nagging issue when I am either responding or writing a new message and that is, I have to click ctrl+ at least 3 times to get it to ideal display size. I read the discussion about pixel vs points in Thunderbird and do not want to change the pixel size for everything using layout.css.devPixelsPerPx setting change (-1.0 default to say 1.25) because my menus/lists look just fine. I only need to change the zoom level or pixel size just when I am composing a new message or responding to someone's email. Is there a way for me to set the display size just for the message window? - Thank you!

Firefox just updated itself to 93.0 and now suddenly I have a big black border around the searchbar when it is focused. The userchrome "#searchbar { border: none !important; }" gets rid of the white border when the searchbar is not focused, but (just a stab in the dark) the userchrome "#searchbar[focused="true"] { border: none !important; }" does nothing when it is focused. How can I get rid of it? (It can be seen in the right-hand part of the attached image.)
