Why is the VIEW menu missing the ability to turn off threads? Hate threads, always have, stupid idea. Sorry, but no. Where can I completely disable threads? I upgraded to 115 beta and all my accounts now have 'threads'... FML.

I upgraded to version 115.2.2 (64 bits), on a Windows 10 OS.

I used to be able to reduce the pane of the message list, so that I could expand the contents of a selected message. But now it has a lower limit, where I cannot push the line up further.

Attached is an image showing the line of concern. I could drag it down, but no further up. How could I change this behavior?

Thanks!

When I upload an image with Firefox, it typically shows a red tint. I've seen similar reports from decades ago so I disabled `gfx.color_management.mode` in `about:config`, but that didn't help, even after restarting the browser and the computer. I disabled a couple of related settings, but that also didn't help. What else could I try?

The new updates are horrible

I've been using TBird for a very long time and am thinking of leaving.

Fonts are now tiny. Can't read my mail without a struggle.

Even changing font size to be bigger in settings isn't helping, even after a restart. Fonts in mail are all too small to see. I don't have any system override set either.

Are you trying to drive older / disabled people away? Feels like it.

Please give one-button option for old look.

At this point I want to revert to last version but can't find download for old version.

Can you help me fix this please, or please show me link to get last version, and turn off updating.

For future: allow in updates to keep old look even with security upgrades. (I'd love even the old icon, but I'm sure that's asking a lot.)

IF THE LOOK ISN'T BROKEN, DON'T FIX IT. Making someone modern while tossing old users under the bus doesn't seem like your style, until today.

p.s. I'm sure other people have this problem but it's not clear how to find this forum. I first just replied to one of your tweets, but I doubt that will be read.

Good morning. My Firefox version is 117.0 and I am running Windows 11 Home. Currently except for Ublock all my other addon icons are grayed out on my toolbar. My webadvisor, Capital One, just gray. This is a new behavior and I'm not sure what happened. I am also curious why just Ublock is colored in. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

I have finally achieved a good font size for email written in plain text. But a good third of my emails are from newsletter subscriptions that are written in html format. In settings/composition, I have changed the setting to HUGE after trying all the other options in the drop-down list.

Nothing works. Couldn't we go back to the old standby - Cntl +? It's simple/stupid, and you don't have to go hunting throughout all the menus (that aren't coordinated in any way)?

Suggestion from Browsing History should not include "Base URL"

Hi all Firefoxers,

There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like :

https://device.domain.com/admin/

When I went to visit that device, typing in the URL bar "device.domain..." , Firefox's 1st default suggestion shows as https://device.domain.com/

The problem is that I never visited that site, the way to access this device is https://device.domain.com/admin/ - there's no way to reconfigure the device and have an auto-redirect to .../admin location.

https://device.domain.com/ is not in my Browsing History nor do I have an open-tab. In the settings Privacy->Address Bar, disabling "Browsing History" removes https://device.domain.com/ from the suggestion list but it also removes all suggestion from the history. This is the expected behavior, the bug required fix isn't related to this.

If the "Base URL" isn't saved in the Browsing History, how can someone tell Firefox to only suggest absolute entries from the history?

I may be missing something, but how can I remove threading completely from Thunderbird or how can I download an older version. I"ve searched for 102.15, but cannot find a way to download it. I really prefer NOT to use another email client. I've always used Thunderbird, but I cannot tolerate this threading thing and I can't seem to disable it.

Hello!

I have the problem that every of my most visited sites are loading normal fast except for YouTube.

YouTube needs about 2 to 3 seconds to load the site itself and the thumbnails like "lagging" pictures which are rendering real slow while my other most visited sites like Twitch, Reddit or Twitter are loading in about 1 second or less. (i have installed the "Page Load Time" addon to check that).

I have only installed uBlock and nothing else.

When I open Firefox settings I can set; Firefox Home (Default), Custom URLs..., or Blank Page. I altered the Firefox Home to show a custom image per [[How to add image to my firefox home page / newtab page|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288490]] . Now I'd like to show the Firefox Home page every time I open Firefox or open a new blank tab.

When I read the article [[How do I set a different Home page and Home button|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1341696]] the options in "about:config > browser.startup.page" are limited to "0-blank; 1-home page; 2-last visited page; 3-restore previous session", but there is no Firefox Home page in this option.

So, it seems I cannot have Firefox open to my custom Firefox Home page (and NewTab) image and have the home button open to my corporate web site. Is there another option that I can accomplish this?

Hello there, Iam facing a problem with changing Firefox homepage background. I tried every solution, tutorial, oldposts etc. nothing seems to work, here is what I tried. -1- The chrome folder is in the right folder. -2- the naming of both CSS files userChrome, userContent. -3- enabled CSS files at startup -4- search for both CSS files in the browser toolbox for some reason I cannot find both CSS files, even though they are in the chrome directory. Also, I have 2 chrome folders one of them is located here. "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\shaf5qn0.default-release\storage\permanent\chrome" the other one I created myself which is here "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\shaf5qn0.default-release\chrome" I tried to delete the first one but I cant, I get an error that this file is being used even though I did close Firefox. What I am missing here?

If I search "lemmy", I want to see that in the URL instead of the full search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. It makes it easier to copy the search query. If the query has spaces than they're written with +s in the URL. I remember months ago this ended up being the default even for pre-existing Firefox profiles, but then it was changed back.

I'd like to suppress displaying message Subject in the folder contents pane. (I'm in vertical view and would like the message contents pane to be wider. To accomplish that I'm willing to sacrifice listing the Subject in the folder contents pane. Tbird doesn't list that as a column I can select or deselect. Any ideas?

The real goal is to make the folder contents pane narrower. But it seems to not allow me to make it any narower than it is. A9(I can widen it, but that doesn't help. Is there any any to change the minimum width Thunderbird has set for that pane?

I have 5 e-mail accounts, and move read e-mails to a related folder under Local Folders.

In TB 102, using the Unified view, there are grouped folders at the top for sent, templates, archive, draft, etc. Under each individual account, these were not duplicated. To get to Account A's Templates folder, I'd go to the unified Templates folder, expand it, and click on Account A Templates.

Now, under 115, these folders are shown _both_ under the Unified folder _and_ under each account. This not only takes up precious space, but is confusing. How can I get unified-eligible folders to show up _only_ under the Unified folder view?

Note that it seems to be only Sent and Template folders that are duplicated. I'm _not_ seeing duplicates of Archived, Junk, or Drafts.

I feel like I dealt with this in an earlier iteration of TB, but I'm damned if I can recall how, and can't find an answer through search.

Thunderbird on my Windows 11 PC was updated to 115.3.1 (64-bit). I like my default view to sort by date and grouped by sort. Since the update, all threads default to expanded. I can collapse the "\"; however, when I switch between email accounts, the view is expanded when I come back. Is there any way to set the view back to collapsed? Or should I restore a previous version of Thunderbird?

Thank you!
