In 78.2.2, even with the config setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, a userChrome.css can still change the UI font, and its point-size, but no longer has any effect on the spacing of rows.

I now have about half as many messages listed on screen than before, because most of the pane is wasted space.

Why has this option been disabled?

Is there another way of compacting the view of message rows?

I'd like to create a filter that runs at regular intervals to move all messages in one folder (not the Inbox) to another folder -- but don't see a way to do it.

The interval can be most anything, such as once a day, every few minutes, or when getting new messages. The key requirements are that it run regularly and act on a specific folder only.

I found some add-ons that might work, but didn't find one that works with Thunderbird 68.12.0.

I create folders under Local Folders where I store data I never want deleted, like travel items (plane tickets with dates, rental car info, airport info), receipts, medical activity, things with dates that I can look back on. I've been saving this data for 15 years and I just noticed that my Receipts folder (where I've diligently stored every receipt for every online purchase for 15 years so I can buy from the same place, refer to model, check a date, etc.) only has items back to July 2016! What happened? Is there some option I am not aware of that can delete "old" data in private folders? I have no idea when this started or why or if this was a one time thing or something is deliberately deleting data past a certain age.

I have 3 email accounts and one of them shows 'from Geoff 2 Smith on MC1' when I receive a msg from him, in both the In Box and in the message. If I reply to him it is sent to the correct address (eg Geoff@Smith.net.xx)

I suspect that I have been responsible for entering something like 'Geoff 2 Smith on MC1' in some field in settings ... but where ? It all works as far as sending a msg to the correct person, but is terribly untidy and frustrating.

Thunderbird 68.12.0 automatically downloads all email waiting in queue (POP). All server setting check-boxes for downloading are "un-ticked". Lots of spam gets in, anyway, unexpectedly.

It seems to happen even with T-Bird has been running (not starting up).

The idea that automatically downloading waiting emails is "normal" or unexpected seems to be, to me, presumptuous -- particularly when a push of F5 is all it takes to initiate downloading. Reading/processing email has a lot to do with workload and workday timing. Cleaning up spam is time-consuming and I have FireTrust Mailwasher to facilitate that, but if T-Bird downloads automatically, I never get to "wash" that email.

A mess.

I'm using Thunderbird 78.2.2 under Windows 10 Home. I just noticed that I have four locked settings in the config editor. I was not aware that it was possible to lock a setting. I can't find any mention of it in the SUMO KB.

They are dom.ipc.processCount.webIsolated , dom.postMessage.sharedArrayBuffer.bypassCOOP_COEP.insecure.enabled fission.autostart and toolkit.telemetry.enabled .

I also have 68.12.0 installed with a separate profile. It has fission.autostart and toolkit.telemetry.enabled locked. I have 60.9.1 installed in another profile. It has just toolkit.telemetry.enabled locked. So I suspect this feature was first added in version 60.*

I searched each prefs.js file for toolkit.telemetry.enabled and did not find it. I do not have any user.js files. I assume these settings are locked because some features are only partially implemented in Gecko and they didn't want anybody to be able to modify the settings yet. I don't have a problem with the current value of those locked settings . My concern is that I want to understand how things work and remain in control. Next time it might not be something so benign.

I searched about:config in Firefox 80.0.1. They do not have a status column so you can't find locked settings without either knowing which ones to check or browsing the entire list. fission.autostart , toolkit.telemetry.enabled, dom.ipc.processCount.webIsolated, privacy.restrict3rdpartystorage.url_decorations , dom.ipc.processCount.webIsolated and dom.postMessage.sharedArrayBuffer.bypassCOOP_COEP.insecure.enabled have a lock icon next to the setting.

How is locking a setting implemented? I know that some default settings created by omni.ja in the Thunderbird installation directory don't appear in the config editor but you can add them in the config editor if you want to modify them. I extracted a copy of mailnews.js and all-thunderbird.js from omni.ja and didn't find any mention of toolkit.telemetry.enabled

I know that Firefox used to support using lockPref() statements in a optional mozilla.cfg file to lock settings, but AFAIK Thunderbird has never used/supported that file.

How can you modify a locked setting? I understand the risk.

I have just upgraded from 68.12 to 78.2.2. My add-ons are still installed (and apparently running) but their effects are not active (e.g. Account Colors installed but my colors are gone).

I cannot find the add-on settings either... Not under general settings, not in the add-on manager, not in "customize", not in tools...

Thanks for the tips!

After following the accepted answer in this question I tried changing the boolean values of the two variables:

  1. network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http [From False to True]
  2. network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https [From False to True]

And then when trying to open a link I selected the browser that I wished and the link opened normally.

But afterwards no link was opening in no browser. I tried resetting those variables to the initial state but still nothing happens.

How can I reset the editor or what should I do to fix this problem?

Thunderbird notifies me on startup if there is unsent mail in the outbox, but that's often too late. It might be hours before I realize that I exited the program and forgot to hit send.

My previous mail client from a few years back (Windows Live Mail) warned me when both opening and closing the app. Am I missing a setting? If not I'd like to suggest this as a feature/option.

Other than that, I like Thunderbird much better than WLM. Version 78.2.2 has some great updates and, unlike so much other software, nothing broke when I updated and all my add-ons still work!

Thanks.

When you use the FileLink feature the link created is visually huge and very, very ugly to see. And if you need more than one link it's even worse, obviously. It's clear that the developers didn't put any attention to the aesthetic component in that thing. Is there a way to change that horrible html code? Maybe in the code somewhere?

I'm in sales and the company I work for uses Outlook Exchange for our emails. I've been trying to get them to open up SMTP so I can use superior sales tools on Gmail but I haven't been successful. One of the main tools i want to use is email sequence follow ups which almost all of them are exclusive to Gmail. Gmail won't connect via OWA or EWS but Thunderbird will. Can I use Thunderbird as an inbetween service for Gmail to the Exchange server. Basically can Thunderbird create it's own SMTP information that I can put into Gmail and then it will send through Thunderbird via OWA/EWS? So I wouldn't actually be accessing my emails on Thunderbird I would be using Gmail but Thunderbird would pass the emails both ways? Let me know if anyone knows if this is possible.
