Is it possible to add a feature to only mark messages as read after time upon opening in a tab, instead of also marking them as read after viewing in the message pane?

Currently if it is set to mark as read after 5 seconds and you view the mail in the message pane for 5 seconds it marks the mail as read.

The request is to only mark the mail as read upon opening/viewing after set amount of time, but not in the message pane.

I know Firefox recently changed some settings regarding automatic downloading of files, but I need to know how to stop Firefox from automatically downloading .pdf files that I view. Sometimes I just want to view a pdf without downloading the file. Firefox keeps automatically downloading the file, then after viewing it, I have to manually delete. I don't to do this! I just want to view the file and if I want to keep it, I'll save a copy. This is extremely annoying! Can I change the settings so that the file won't automatically save to my computer? Thanks

I've been using Thunderbird for years and had very few problems. I view and keep all my incoming and sent emails in date order, and move them to the relevant folders when they are dealt with. This morning my incoming emails also have other incoming emails, and my original sent email attached to them. I think this is called threading? but I have never set this up or asked for it, and don't even know how to do it. I'm finding this 'threading' is really annoying - I want all my emails separate and not joined or linked together. How do I disable this setting and stop all my emails joining together like this? I've looked at the help pages and the answers are too technical. I've tried the ones I can understand but they don't work. Can someone please send me a step by step solution to this? thank you Ray

Since FF, (in their infinite wisdom) once again screwed my computer up. I have lost all my bookmarks, all my apps (some of which I paid for), desktop gone, replaced with something I hate. This happened after the 100.0.2 update. I have tried to fix every thing for the pas few days with no success. I wonder if FF is going to pay me back for the paid apps I bought. This is a working computer and I need my files back. Also, I cannot find my restore button. I don't guess we need that anymore because big brother knows all oops, FF). PLEASE help.

I got an email awhile back stating Firefox was going to offer a VPN service, with a 30 free trial offer. MY question is does the Firefox VPN offer a split tunneling option like other VPN services offer? From what I understand, split tunneling is a feature where the VPN service will be active, or connected in one browser but then it would be disabled or disconnected in another browser. Can you please explain if I got that correct? Thank you.

Hello. Is there a way to make SORT BY THREADED and EXPAND ALL THREADS a default? Several times during any one session, as well at start up, I have to select both SORT BY THREADED and EXPAND ALL THREADS. This is a critical failure. It is easy to miss important emails (responses). Also, the need to focus on that issue and having to repeatedly make the sorting selections is very disruptive. Thank you.

Zoom meeting links not opening

This morning I re-installed an update to Zoom (on Linux - ElementaryOS / Ubuntu 18.04). Since installing, I've not been able to follow links from Firefox to Zoom (zoommtg links don't open the app). However, they still work from Epiphany.

The slight confounding factor is that I realised that I've been updated to FF 104 overnight, so that might be an issue.

I've been looking at network.protocol-handler.... settings in about:config, based on this article: https://superuser.com/questions/1343020/how-to-configure-firefox-open-zoom-urls-using-zoom-application#1351073

I've also been looking at xdg-settings (based on this article) https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/i83m8i/zoom_desktop_client_isnt_launching_from_browser/ which suggests the problems might be to do with xdg-settings calling /usr/share/applications/zoom.desktop when the available file is /usr/share/applications/Zoom.desktop However, I have not been able to alter the xdg-settings parameter - when I try: $ xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler zoommtg zoom.desktop it does not change the setting - it remains as Zoom.desktop

I should mention that the version of FF I'm running is delivered as a snap - but this was not a problem before 104 / my latest Zoom installation. Also, this version of FF has no problem opening up MS Teams meetings or Slack groups. handlers.json includes : ... "slack":{"action":4},"snap":{"action":4},"zoommtg":{"action":4},"msteams":{"action":4}}, .... so I am thinking the problem must lie somewhee else.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

thanks Andy
