Is gContactSync likely to be modified to work with the latest version of Thunderbird? For the moment I have copied my Google contacts to the Address Book, but would dearly like to have the two synchronised as before!

Or has the developer of this excellent add-on retired or decided he/she does not want to play any more?

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Hello!

I'm currently using Firefox nightly for Android, simply for the reason of installing custom add-ons, rather than having to choose from the given list.

I've followed this guide so far: [https://www.ghacks.net/2020/10/01/you-can-now-install-any-add-on-in-fi...]

And I've added the 3 extensions I need at, by signing in with this very Firefox account: [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../collections/]

My problem is when I attempt to add a custom Add-on collection, it asks me: Collection owner (User ID) What is my User ID? How do I add my custom collection so I can use my own add-ons? Apologies in advance if this is a silly question and I'm missing something obvious.

Is there a way to get an indication of unread emails on the taskbar icon under Windows 10? On the Mac version, there would be a red dot on the icon if there was an unread email, no matter how many accounts you have. I have the email notification turned on in my tray, but as soon as I open Thunderbird, and click on an unread email, it goes away, even if I have other unread emails.

Not a show stopper, but it makes it easier when you have multiple email accounts.

Many thanx,

Homer

I downloaded some extension (sorry, forgot which) and it changed the way the left pane looks like. Instead of each email separate, each with a sub-category of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, etc., now all the Inboxes are grouped under one category, each "Sent" under another, etc.

So it changed from the first picture (or similar to it since I got that pic off the internet), to the second

Please how do I revert it so that each individual email has its own Inbox, Sent, etc. separate from another email's?

I am a very long-time user of Thunderbird (and have been using it under Win 10 for several years) I do not know when my Thunderbird updated to 78.9.1

Encountering a weird problem today with Thunderbird when I try to create an outgoing email...

If I click the "Address Book" tab, all my saved addressees are intact, so that function is normal. If I click the "Write" icon (or "Reply" button when I am viewing a received email), I get a window (sample image uploaded) that has no email addressees from my address book to choose from, and even if I manually fill in an email addressee, there is no "send" button. Am I missing something obvious here?

If the recommended solution is to download and (re)install Thunderbird, will the (re)install keep all my old settings, emails, local folders, etc?

I am migrating from The Bat! email client (still adore it most, but switching primarily to Linux). I have thousands of emails and are prepping them for conversion.

From screenshots of Thunderbird, it doesn't look that like both clients have the same Message List Columns/Message Fields, so I may lose information in the conversion. I am looking for an official list of all the fields available in Thunderbird so that I may compare and make changes in The Bat! first.

One example, I currently use a Memo field, which is in addition to a Tag field. Will Thunderbird support that?

Any guidance or information is appreciated. Thank you!

I'm trying to run Firefox on headless mode through Selenium in AWS Lambda. Since Lambda marks the root file system as read-only except /tmp/. I pointed the geckodriver to write the logs to /tmp but still Firefox is not starting up and it's failing with the following error.

Any guidance on how to get it working?

firefox_driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_profile=ff_profile, firefox_binary='/opt/firefox/firefox', options=firefox_options, service_log_path='/tmp/geckodriver.log')

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

It's a very bad idea to move the screenshot function from the context menu in the address bar to a toolbar item you first have to position by customizing. This is exactly the kind of unnecessary interface change which annoys so many Firefox users. Okay, so why is it bad? Most "normal" users don't fiddle with interfaces, they accept it as it is. They expect functions they often use to stay in the same spot. If it's no longer there they think it's gone (and they're frustrated). They surely won't go looking for it in a customization menu. For me as a web designer the screenshot tool was extremely handy when dealing with clients, because it was very easy to explain where to find and how to use it, to send a screenshot of a website problem. Again, many common users don't know how to take screenshots with their system tools, so this was really helpful. Now, instead of explaining where to find it, I'll first have to explain how to customize the toolbar, what the item looks like, how to position it, etc. etc. The simplicity and helpfulness is gone. Suggestion: leave the screenshot function where it is by default, but offer the advanced users a way to make it a customizable item. Everyone is happy.

P.S. I only post this here, because the feedback site is currently deactivated.

I have browsed the threads with this same issue and have tried all that has been suggested but I can not get my images to show when my recipient receives my email.

When I click 'attach this image to the message', the images are sent as an attachment. Unticking this box, which has previously been fine, some recipients can see my images, but many can not. I have tried using images that are sourced on my PC and from my website - no difference. I have tried saving as a template. Didn't work. My email signature is saved as a HTM file and I have ticked 'Attach the signature from a file instead'. I have also tried pasting the HTML code into the 'signature text' area and this made no difference. Compose messages in HTML format is ticked. In send options, I have used both 'send message in both plain text and HTML' and 'send the message in HTML anyway' - neither have worked.

Would really appreciate some help with this as it looks so unprofessional when my recipients keep getting white boxes in place of images.

I am really at a loss. Please help!

Thanks a million,

Gary
