I saw where this was a problem with Netflix, Amazon Video and other sites with Fire Fox and that one person even used professional version and still had the same problem.

What I cannot see is where he got the video codex that allow Netflix to work on Fire Fox version 88, let alone this newest version that Mozilla has created.

When is Mozilla bringing back the "page" feature (or just a "print" command) so that users can print directly from the browser? This missing feature has been noted by countless support requests over the last two years. It's clearly something your user base wants. If Mozilla doesn't want its browser to go the way of Internet Explorer, it needs to listen to its customers.

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

I assume it's about the updates but haven't found reference. Now the "choices" are default black or Typing in a "color". I use colors for ongoing conversational emails- the readability of the color is important as well as choice. I also write messages akin to greeting cards to recipients wherein I use color varieties. How do I replace the new font color choice with the old?

I recently had my computers stolen and had to start from scratch. I loaded Thunderbird and apparently it is a later version than I was previously using. After migrating a backup of my profile to it, I have this horrible zebra striping in the folders pane which pretty much keeps me from being able to identify folders since every other line is light text on a light background -- I'd prefer for the background of all lines to be dark.

I found an article which included some code to put in the userChrome.css file to eliminate the striping but it was for Thunderbird 2.0 and I am currently on 68.3.1 (32-bit) (not sure how I wound up with 32 bit). I tried it but it didn't work.

Does anyone know how to change this -- I'm starting to think of looking for a different email client as this is making Thunderbird very difficult to use.

I have looked at some responses and tried a few, nothing changes. I did go into Display-Formatting, both Default Font and Advanced-Latin and Other Writing Systems. Control ++ temporarily does what I want, but that's not the point because it doesn't stick.

Its not going to be acceptable to a majority of people, is a fix underway? Or is an add-on to 68.3 being developed soon?

Firefox offers the option to "Fill login" through the context menu (see attached image) when ever in a login or password field. However I am using Bitwarden instead of the Firefox password manager and disabled saving passwords in Firefox. Is there a way to remove this "Fill login" action as it always just shows that no logins are saved?

In simple language, how do I set the font in which plain-text e-mail messages are displayed in Thunderbird 68? They seem to show up in a very small sans-serif monospace font, but I would like to display them in a larger serif monospace (like Courier New).

I expected to find the setting in Tools/Options/Display/Formatting/Plain Text Messages, but there is only a provision to distinguish quoted plain text replies, not to set the main font.

I am running Thunderbird 68.4.1 under Windows 10.

I'm sure somebody in this group had a really neat smart idea to improve or "fix" something, but the number one rule is backward compatibility when it comes to addons. People really do USE and RELY ON these addons, and you just broke every one that I had. I am really really upset with this super poor design decision being approved. I don't care what great whizbang feature broke them, but I'd sure like that reversed so I can use my important addons again. THANK YOU!!

CTRL + W is the keyboard shortcut to close the active tab. This works fine if the tab isn't pinned, but if I press CTRL + W on a pinned tab, it just cycles to the next tab. This isn't ideal. The shortcut should close the tab regardless of whether it is pinned (as it does in other browsers). Anyone know why Firefox does this / is it intentional behaviour?

Firefox used to allow a hack to add a custom search engine to the search engine list. This allowed users to make custom engines the DEFAULT search engine. (Engines can be added to Bookmarks but then they require a keyword to activate. Default engines do not require a keyword to activate).

The way to do it was: 1) place a folder called "searchplugins" with your custom .xml file describing your search engine (i.e.,, a URL with a %s added to it) inside your Home folder on a Linux OS.

2) open the Web Console

3) input: Services.search.addEngine("file:///home/user/searchplugins/custom-engine.xml", null, null, false);

4) now your custom search engine would appear in the search engine listing in Firefox and could be made default

On recent Firefoxes, this no longer works. When I inter the Sevices.search.addEngine part to the Web Console, I get this message: "ReferenceError: Services is not define"

I've been using Google Chrome because of stuff like this. Firefox just doesn't allow me to do what I want to do. But I appreciate Mozilla ideals and am trying to give Firefox another chance. But it is contingent on being able to make my custom search engine the default search engine.

Is there a fix for this error I'm encountering in the Web Console?
