I like to have newest emails at the top of the list rather than bottom. I have just moved 30GB of email data to TB from 20 yrs on Mac Mail. Hooray!

I don't need to explain how many local folders I've got, and the pain it will be to sort every folder manually!

Please could someone advise me how to force all folders to sort by date/descending? thanks

Installed Firefox 122 in a new Windows 10 installation and added some extensions (e.g. Gesturefly, Update Scanner, uBlock Origin, Uppity). These pinned fine on my old installation. But I cannot find how to pin them on the new.

All the help I have found Googling, or using search here, says go to the Add-ons Manager page and right-click the extension and use "pin to toolbar". Alternatively click the extension and click the gear icon and use "pin to toolbar". But when I right-click there is no pin to toolbar context menu entry. If I left-click the gear I get "Check for Updates, View Recent Updates, Install Add-on From File, Debug Add-ons, Update Add-ons Automatically, Reset All Add-ons to Update Automatically, Manage Extension Shortcuts". If I right-click the gear I get a line of icons (left, right, reload, star) followed by "Open Image in New Tab, Copy Image Link, Email Image, Save Page As, Select All, View Pate Source, Inspect Accessibility Properties, Inspect (Q)". If I right-click the extension in the Add-ons Manager page itself, I get a very similar list. In no case is there a pin to toolbar option.

How do I pin an extension, given the above? What have I messed up?

How can I disable the ctrl+t shortcut? I have tried using the Shortkey add-on, but it will not touch the ctrl+t shortcut. It works for everything else, just not that one. I've been told I can modify the browser.xhtml file inside the omni.ja file, but I am finding that almost impossible. Has anyone managed to do this?

Cox.com has decided to no longer have their own email server and switched their accounts to yahoo. I can read my email directly on Yahoo, but can't get their imap to work. I changed the imap and smtp settings to yahoo. Also, the email login has changed and I changed that in Thunderbird. With Cox, the login was just "username" and now it is "username@cox.net". When I made these changes in the account settings, my email account has disappeared from the inbox, but it is still in account settings. I am using a unified inbox with several accounts.

Cox will not help me with this, and I have been on hold with yahoo for an hour with no response. I have been messing with this for two days so I hope you can help me.

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

When i click on a tab, if I am not perfectly steady at the time of the click, Firefox opens the tab in a new windows. It happens several times a day, it's quite annoying. Searching for solutions in the support page, I've found that there was an add-on to disable this function, but now it's not available anymore. Is there a solution in 2024?

I've just switched to firefox from brave, and theres no button on twitch to enable picture in picture. Using the keyboard shortcut (cmd+option+shift+]) works, but I'd much rather click something on the screen. On brave there used to be a picture in picture button alongside settings, theatre mode, and fullscreen buttons, but on firefox this has been replaced by a clip button. There's no option for it if I right click (this works on youtube), and no option in the address bar for either twitch or youtube. I've tried disabling all my extensions and lowering protections but nothing seems to work.

I apparently have to get to Composition, but cannot find a way of getting there.

There are two "bad email" files in Thunderbird: JUNK and SPAM. I'm still not clear on the difference.

For JUNK mail, TB gives us the option to select "NOT JUNK". Good.

But for SPAM, I cannot find the option "NOT SPAM"

1) Why are there separate SPAM and JUNK directories? And why are they managed differently? This seems terribly non-intuitive and inconsistent and just strange.

2) How can I train SPAM filter to not flag good email from trusted senders? For instance, I get email from my wife many times a day for many years. Today, TB put her email into SPAM. Isn't there a simple command to "white list" a sender's email address?

Disable "Open Firefox every time you restart your computer" opt-in prompt

Starting with Firefox version 120, you can set Firefox to automatically launch whenever you start or restart your Windows computer. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/open-firefox-automatically-when-you-start-computer

The browser shows opt-in prompt for the user to easily setup this behavior. However, I do not want to do this.

When I click "No thanks", the prompt goes away, but couple days later, it returns. I guess that an update resets the prompt status.

Is there a way to permanently disable this opt-in prompt without allowing Firefox to start automatically with the computer?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 98.0.1. And there doesn't seem to be an option to add Pocket suggestions to the homepage, as there used to be.

You can add Pocket articles that you've saved, but not suggestions from Pocket.

It used to be under settings - home - recommended by Pocket.

Has this been removed from the options?

Thanks, Taylor

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!

Every solution which I have found for Firefox 89 "Proton" so far which moves the Tabs Bar below the Navigation Bar (AKA "address bar"), with the Menu Bar above it, does NOT move the Tabs Bar below the Bookmarks Bar. The Bookmarks Bar appears to be overwritten and blank, and occupies space below the Menu Bar, Navigation Bar, and Tabs Bar. This empty space separates the three bars which are implemented and the content of the currently-selected tab below it.

Currently, my userChrome.css file is a copy posted by Cor-el (?):

Evidently, the text editor for this website does several things to the above original text that, frankly, seem unnecessary and undesirable. The .CSS file is just an unformatted text file, so what is the problem with simply copying its contents and pasting it in to the body of this post?

Which is also to say that I do NOT have a clue as to what any line in the file is meant to do, what effect it has, why it is even in the file at all, or why it is written in the way that it is. So DO NOT tell me that I "CAN" create a Cascading Style Sheet on my own when I cannot even modify one that has been provided.

On the face of it, something is missing from the above CSS text. What change needs to be made to the above content so that the Bookmark Bar will appear between the Navigation Bar and the Tabs Bar??

Thank-you very much for your time and attention to this request for assistance.
