Filters - How to distinguish between email address and name?

One of the reasons I wanted to move away from Outlook was that it was unable to tell the difference between an email address, a name, and the combination of both. Now it seems I may have stumbled upon exactly the same problem in Thunderbird.

I try to use Filters to distinguish difference types of email (for the record, I'm setting up a heap of Tags with different colours, and letting auto-filters assign appropriate Tags -- poor-man's colour highlighting).

I had a Filter that applied to messages with the "From" field equal to "mailer@company.com" (not their real name).

However, they changed their mail-out address to "noreply@company.com", so I had to change the filter. Rather than risking missing important emails again (I missed a few), I tried changing the filter to the "From" field *contains* "@company.com" -- and now the filter fails to hit *any* of their mail, when run.

I suspect Thunderbird is only attempting to match the "name" in the "From" field, rather than both "name" and "email address", or "email address" alone. In this case, the full "From" field is "Parent Company <noreply@company.com>".

First question is, is there something else I could try?

Second question is, why can't I specify which part of the "To", "From", "Cc" and "Bcc" fields are searched?!

Seriously, this is a major design flaw (that has been part of Outlook forever). It can be **really** important to distinguish email addresses from Contact Names, and from names accompanying email addresses. That's especially true in a case like mine where I'm working with partial matches. It's not hard to formulate a scenario where an attempt to match just a name also started matching spurious email addresses -- and especially vice versa!

Anyway, I hope someone can help me out. Thank you.

The problem is with Firefox screenshots. Full page shots are working fine, but "Save Visible" and custom selections using the outlining tool are scaling at 71% instead of 100%. So, I'm only getting some of what I want.

How do I fix this? I didn't see anything in config about this.

Pic is an example of what I'm talking about.

I installed Lorex security cameras recently. I can access the DVR support box from Firefox and do admin stuff, but I can see no images from the cameras. Instead of images I get the message:

  Your browser does not support this function!

This appears in the sub-window that the current image should appear in. I have installed ffmpeg and gstreamer (libav, ugly and unrar) - all to no avail. I am running Fedora 33 currently patched fully (yesterday).

I find it hard to believe that these images cannot be seen in Firefox. What am I doing wrong????

So i want to add a custom search engine (Startpage specifically) in Firefox Android. After adding I notice Firefox didn't get the icon of the search engine, but using a generated icon (simply a letter 's') which is kind of ugly considering I want to use it as default search engine and the icon would stay in my new tab.

Is there any way to add the icon, or other way to solve my problem?

I am trying to download all of the emails on my ISP's server to my hard drive using a recently downloaded Mac version of Thunderbird. I went to Offline-download/Sync Now and it appears to download but I can't find the file on my hard drive. There is no Thunderbird folder in the library, so no Profile folder where the files are supposed to live. Help please.

Hello everyone! thank you for your assistance and expertise ahead of time as any help is heavily appreciated.

I've been trying to find a way to disabled downloading in Firefox all together. The reason for this is per my organization's requests. As they do not want users downloading anything what so ever.

I've found extensions that can do this, however since I'm tweaking a profile in which is shared amongst all users. Its not the best solution since I have to manually check the add-ons on every time I make a new user profile.

Is there by any chance a means for me to disable downloading as a whole within either userChrome.css or about:config?

Any help again is greatly appreciated.

I have an add-on which is installed from the public add-on store (?). This add-on works quite good.

Nevertheless I made some tiny adjustments in the source to fullfill my needs. I can manually load the file from the add-on manager which works as well.

But as soon as I do one of the two task:

  • restart the whole computer (or logout and login)
  • Check for Update

the manually loaded xpi is gone. It is only the public one available.

==> How to have the manually adapted xpi loaded all the time and the public one not any more?

Firefox 86 has introduced a new print preview panel which I like. What I don't like though is that the unit for print margins has changed from millimeter to inch (see screenshot, in German). In previous versions, it was possible to set the unit in the prefs by changing "print.printer_PostScript/default.print_paper_size_unit". Value 0 meant imperial units, value 1 meant metric units. This entry does no longer exist.

There is still the entry "print.printer_printername.print_paper_size_unit" for every printer that's installed. Those values are all set to 1 in my case but this doesn't seem to have any effect.

So how can I set the margins of printed pages in millimeters instead of inches?

Hi everyone,

I was experiencing troubles with color changing when writing a mail in the composer. I could not get a new color being applied even if I selected one different from black in the toolbar. I looked for a tip on other forums but nothing was satisfying in my case... Just to give the tip for others that could meet some similar situation, maybe you will have to check for colors parameters in "general settings" instead of looking for a solution with "composer settings". The issue was described on this forum for windows users, and the solution was found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1100393#question-reply Tools - Options - Display - Formatting - Default Font - Colors - Override the colors specified by content was "always" and I changed it to "never"

but there was no evidence that the problem could be solved for MacOS users regarding the last posts...

So here it is: I am using French version of Thunderbird so if I give some inaccurate translation for menu titles, I am sorry for this. 1. Go to Thunderbirds / Preferences / General 2. Scroll down till "Languages and appearance" 3. Click the "Colors" button 4. Uncheck "Use system colors" 5. Quit and relaunch Thunderbird

You should now be able to select whatever color you want in the mail composer ! And modify selected text or entire text.

Hope it will help.

NB: What is strange about these settings is that it should apply to the mail visualizer only, not to the mail composer... but it works ... I am not a thunderbird killer... so... that's it !
