Happy to see thunderbird is doing better and better recent years. I think it is now the time to add an option to allow it automatically startup in the background on system startup, which has been asked for several years. That is a really useful option, why not just implement it?

I think there are 2 ways: 1. Just automatically startup in the background on system startup and receive messages 2. Register a service in the background to receive e-mails and pop up notifications, and in this case, we don't need to add this option

The first solution may be easier to implement, but the second seems better? Anyway, thunderbird should have one of them

BTW, add an option to minimalize when click on 'close' button. I know there's an extension for this, so why not just integrate it :-)

Thanks!

I have to use Firefox Developer Edition in order to run an addon a custom addon that I made. The only quirk I don't like is having to see "Firefox Developer Edition" in the taskbar. I notice that it only displays this text from the home page and then changes once I a web page is in focus. How can I change the taskbar title text of the new tab/home page so that it just says "Firefox"?

Hi, i would like to set my pdf handling as follows

1. When opening a pdf link, i need the file to open in browser, don't want it to download 2. When opening from download history, i want it to open in my pdf software

I believe this was the default in old firefox(some years ago). Currently if i set it to open in browser, point 1 will work but 2 won't (i have to right click and choose "open in xx app") if i set it to always open in other app, 2 will work but 1 won't. Back then i tried some settings which downloads the file to temp folder and open from there, i don't want that (not needed the file in download history) pls let me know if there is a solution. Thanks

Hello,

I have checked the box "Always ask you where to save files". It works well most of the time, however, I have faced a case in which it does not. Opening a link to a pdf file directly from google search results, somehow bypasses this option, and starts downloading the pdf automatically, and opens it after download finished. I believe you are aware how dangerous it is to open pdf files directly.

If there is a solution to this, I will be glad to hear from you, as it is very important issue. Thank you beforehand.

(Firefox Nightly) The tabs and menu buttons seem to have been relocated to a fixed pane on the bottom of the browser window. I can't tell if this was part of an update or some accidental swipe. My attempts to fix this:

Longpressing these ui elements doesn't show any contextual options.

Settings seems to only allow relocation of the url bar top/bottom.

Nothing in the configuration editor (json or xml or whatever seems to cover this, but I am not particularly fluent in browser widgetspeak.

Suffice it to say, tapping tabs and menu (for extensions) is a high frequency activity so having these irreversibly(?) relocated is frustrating.

So many topics where links are broken and instructions (no longer) apply. Can anyone please help?

Thunderbird 115.12 esr on OSX is told (or should be told) to show all received messages as plain text only, and only send email as plain text.

The font, size, line width/length, and line height of print, folders list, message list, and message text needs changing.

I wish to have everything (print, folders list, message list, and message text) to always be Atkinson Hyperlegible, 12 points, 1.2 line height.

I wish received and sent messages to show on screen with a line length of 100 characters.

I wish printed emails to fill the page width, so no cap at 100 characters.

How do I do this? Thank you for helping a vision impaired !

I'm having a problem where certain websites does not show up as shortcuts on the startpage. Like for example reddit.com or twitter.com does not appear even though I visit those pages often and more than any other page. It doesn't make sense that a random website shows up immediately as I visit it once, but not the websites I visit often. So I have to type in manually in the search bar to get there instead of just clicking the shortcut on the startpage.

I COULD pin the websites on the startpage, but the pictures only show up as the automated pictures such as "R" or "T" for Reddit and Twitter respectively. I'm also having problems using my own pictures for the shortcuts and I'd rather fix the problem instead of having to pin websites as shortcuts. It also looks a bit ugly in my opinion.

This started happening after I switched Microsoft accounts on my PC and started using Firefox on another user account. By the time I switched, I was logged into the same account on two different users on my PC, and I synchronized several times. That other logged in user is now removed from my Firefox account and I also completely deleted the other user on my PC to free up space. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and deleted all the files on my PC, but it still doesn't work. I have checked in about:profiles and it says there is a "default-release" and "default" profile.
