When I display a page with text it is really bad in firefox but not any other browser that I have. This just seems to have happened. I am on Windows10. Sometimes when the page loads the text is great, but only for a second and then goes bad - I think the term is pixily?

Having Tbird assume "accepts HTML emails" is the default for recipients

I'm working with Thunderbird's Send Options to figure out how to get my Thunderbird to send HTML to most people, but send plain text to the cranky folks who insist on text-only. It's 2020, and most people these days are fine with HTML email. I'd like the behavior to be that Tbird sends plain text when possible, and when I have formatting, it will silently go ahead and send HTML emails, except when one of the recipients in it is in one of the Plain Text domains or has been explicitly marked as preferring Plain Text in my address book.

I've enabled "Send messages as plain text if possible", and listed "@gnu.org" in my Plain Text Domains. I have not marked the preferred email type for any recipients in my Address Book.

If I change "When sending messages in HTML format...:" to "Ask me what to do", I'm now getting prompted about HTML formatting on every email I send. It seems that Tbird is seeing the "Prefers to receive messages formatted as: Unknown" in my contacts and treating that as "not known to receive HTML".

I would like to be able to set Thunderbird to assume that those Unknowns can receive HTML text, and only prompt me when there's a recipient who has been explicitly set to "Prefers: Plain Text" or is in the Plain Text Domains list.

In TB I had a snafu I somehow caused myself with missing folders that I'd created. I got that fixed finally but in the process of doing so I downloaded TB again. Now I have two email accounts [myname@bellsouth.net, and myname@bellsouth.net_2; both with the same inbound and outbound servers, same everything].....except one account has "_2" at the end of it. The "_2" one is the first listed. The one without "_2" is further down, vertically. All folders I created are now in both accounts. I want to get back to just the one account I originally had. I "think" I can probably just remove the account with the "_2" at the end (Tools, Account Settings, Account Actions, Remove Account). In fact, the _2 one is highlighted and the Remove option is available. If I highlight the account without the _2 that option to Remove is grayed out. I just don't want another screw up on my part. Can someone please advise?

Hello....I have a question out there from 1/16 saying that my Trash folder isn't working. on my gmail accoutn. It disappeared, so I created a Trash folder, but even though I have it 'pointing' to it, nothing goes in there.

I tried renaming it to 'Deletes', but that didn't work either.

I uninstalled and reinstalled TBird, but no luck.

Since Trash and Deletes are useless, I tried deleting them, but now the program won't let me. I suppose that I can drag and drop my trashed msgs into the Trash folder, but I am so used to the old way that I keep 'losing' deleted msgs. I like to keep them for 30 days just in case.

Btw, I also have a Verizon account set up and everything works perfectly with it.

Thank you

I migrated 20 years of email from a local hosting provider to GSuite. All of that migration happened in the cloud.

Now, in Thunderbird, I assume I need to change the IMAP Mail Server Name to the server address of my new GSuite account. Right?

If so, my question is: what will happen to the 25 gigabytes of locally stored email in Thunderbird when I change the IMAP Server Address?

Will Thunderbird remove the locally stored email (e.g. received via the old IMAP server address) and then re-download all 25 gigabytes from the new GSuite IMAP server? Will it keep all the local email where it is and just add new email? Or something else?

Are there steps I can take to make the process go smoothly? I will, for sure, do a back up before starting.

Thank you for your help!

So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

For years, I have drafted text in a Word Document, and then copied it into an outgoing e-mail. In the last few weeks, when I do that, the first few characters, maybe just one, do not show up on the screen. Also sometimes the last few characters. Thunderbird recipients receive it with the same problem. I don't know about other recipients, except in aol and gmail, it appears fine. Any thoughts anyone?

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

As I have recently migrated my message folders to a new profile, but with my account being setup identical to what it was in the original profile, the From and To/Cc fields of the message header are abbreviated to just the name of sender and recipient(s). In previous versions of Thunderbird I have been accustomed to seeing the full format "Joe Doe <JD@someplace.com>" and without the solid blue start adjacent. Is there a convenient way to revert to the older format? The original profile and the new profile are viewed in TB 78.6.1.
