I'm starting the planning of the upgrade process of Thunderbird v52.9.1 to the current latest version. With the limited time I have I expect this will take a couple of months and I'll come across a number of issues.

There will be a multitude of features I want to disable, and probably several cosmetic changes.

The first of which is getting rid of the square tabs. The css used for Firefox doesn't seem to work for Thunderbird. How to I apply the same strategy to Thunderbird. This could be a real quick upgrade path - if I can't get back the curved tabs in the latest version what is the last version in which I can get back the curvy tabs? If 52.9.1 is the last version on which that is possible I won't be upgrading at all.

css for Firefox: https://github.com/wilfredwee/photon-australis

There have been 52 releases since 52.9.1. I found the release notes at https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/releases/

Rather than download 52 individual release notes is there perhaps an aggregated version I can download anywhere?

Can I make the jump straight from 52.9.1 to the latest version, or do I have to do the transition in multiple upgrades?

I used the thunderbird addon importexporttools-ng to import an MBOX file into thunderbird. I was hoping to then copy or move the emails into gmail using thunderbird.

I have about 30,000 emails I need imported into gmail. However when I try to copy the emails into gmail using thunderbird it only copies about 8,000 of them. I couldn't possibly know which ones have been copied and which haven't.

Why aren't all the emails being copied into gmail. Is is there a setting I need to change or perhaps I need to increase a timeout setting. I thought it was only emails with an attachment that weren't being copied over but that's not the case. However I noticed larger emails are less likely to be successfully copied.

I would really appreciate some help.

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

I put the userChrome.css file here in my Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

I use Firefox as my main browser. In the past when I clicked on links in Thunderbird's RSS reader it opened those links in Firefox.

Recently I also installed Chromium. I did not set Chromium as the default system browser. But now, whenever I click on a link in Thunderbird's feed reader it opens up Chromium*.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm using Arch GNU/Linux.

  • - Yes I have got it the right way around! I could understand it if Thunderbird always opens Firefox despite settings. But that's not what's happening, Thunderbird is always opening Chromium.

Hi All,

My web pages have 4 basic sections, Header, Menu, Content and Footer. In the print media query position static is used. I understand that should make them print in order. All browser had this messed up for many years but I'm sure Firefox had this fixed for awhile. In version 82.0.3 this is messed up again, footer prints at the top of 1st page.

Is this a printing bug? Or, do I misunderstand position static?

Why can't it print as shown on screen, What you see is what you get?


Thank you for any help,

Charles

Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

Hello everybody!

I've recently found out about userChrome.css and love all the creations people made. But I have a slight problem. My close, minimize, and maximize buttons have a different color and size which kind of messes up the custom themes.

Hi, I would like to know how to control whether my add-ons should open their tabs automatically. I have alot of add-ons, and once in a while, probably after updating between two periods of time when using Firefox, add-ons would open their about pages, settings, home pages, etc. Can you please tell me how to assign what add-ons can open their pages automatically?

As well as Thunderbird, I'm still using an open source email program called Virtual Access as my primary email software solely because of the re-threading abilities. My company is ONLY using Virtual Access. The problem with VA is that it stopped being developed probably 15 years years ago and its HTML support is rudimentary. VA dates back some 25+ years and may have be the inspiration for Thunderbird. In VA, it threads by Subject. You can take a message in a thread and make it the Root message for following messages or you can move a message to another thread provided it is earlier than the one you are re-threading. You can also copy or move to and re-thread the email to another folder. I've uploaded a screenshot from VA and in the upper right pane, hopefully you can see what I mean by this flexible way of threading. (I shrank the message pane to show more of the threading) I'd be willing to donate to Mozilla several thousand pounds for the sort of flexibility in Threads VA gives you.

11.23.20

Some time in the last week, the behavior of the tab key has changed in the address bar. Previously it would cycle through address/search bar items. Now it is opening up the autocomplete window for the address bar.

There are already keys that do that. (Down arrow, etc) I don't want another, particularly not another that I frequently used to tab over to the search box and favorites.

Does anyone know a way to revert or disable this behavior without completely disabling the auto complete window under that address bar? Alternatively, whatever shortcut keys now cycle through address bar items.
