I recently purchased a new laptop and needed to migrate my old Thunderbird profiles. This is what I did: 1. Backed up profiles from old laptop 2. downloaded and installed latest version of Thunderbird on new laptop 3. coped profiles into \roaming directory 4. tested and successfully received emails and viewed all old emails.

The problem is that the Mail toolbar is nowhere to be found. Also, the calendar is missing. I tried right clicking on empty space and it only showed "menu bar" as an option. Attachment shows nothing in the toolbars option of View dropdown.

I have finally achieved a good font size for email written in plain text. But a good third of my emails are from newsletter subscriptions that are written in html format. In settings/composition, I have changed the setting to HUGE after trying all the other options in the drop-down list.

Nothing works. Couldn't we go back to the old standby - Cntl +? It's simple/stupid, and you don't have to go hunting throughout all the menus (that aren't coordinated in any way)?

How do I stop firefox from automatically downloading files from the internet when I click on them - without even asking me if I want to download them in the first place. In "Applications", selecting "Always Ask" in "Choose how firefox handles files etc" does not work. Firefox never asks. If it cannot be disabled, I will have to stop using Firefox.

Hello there, Iam facing a problem with changing Firefox homepage background. I tried every solution, tutorial, oldposts etc. nothing seems to work, here is what I tried. -1- The chrome folder is in the right folder. -2- the naming of both CSS files userChrome, userContent. -3- enabled CSS files at startup -4- search for both CSS files in the browser toolbox for some reason I cannot find both CSS files, even though they are in the chrome directory. Also, I have 2 chrome folders one of them is located here. "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\shaf5qn0.default-release\storage\permanent\chrome" the other one I created myself which is here "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\shaf5qn0.default-release\chrome" I tried to delete the first one but I cant, I get an error that this file is being used even though I did close Firefox. What I am missing here?

Suggestion from Browsing History should not include "Base URL"

Hi all Firefoxers,

There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like :

https://device.domain.com/admin/

When I went to visit that device, typing in the URL bar "device.domain..." , Firefox's 1st default suggestion shows as https://device.domain.com/

The problem is that I never visited that site, the way to access this device is https://device.domain.com/admin/ - there's no way to reconfigure the device and have an auto-redirect to .../admin location.

https://device.domain.com/ is not in my Browsing History nor do I have an open-tab. In the settings Privacy->Address Bar, disabling "Browsing History" removes https://device.domain.com/ from the suggestion list but it also removes all suggestion from the history. This is the expected behavior, the bug required fix isn't related to this.

If the "Base URL" isn't saved in the Browsing History, how can someone tell Firefox to only suggest absolute entries from the history?

Sorry, posted recently and had then trouble finding out how to respond to help offered (jscher2000)! Noticed that the email version was "no-reply" so I didn't figure that would work! So, I tried to 'cut and paste' my reply (on a smartphone) and I ended up losing even the email reply text so here is a reconstruction. I tried the suggestions in order and the first one didn't have a "Restore previous session" option and the second one had "Recently closed windows" greyed out! And, when I entered "about.support" in the address bar (top rightish), I received a notice that I couldn't reach Google (Remember that I don't currently have internet access on my laptop). So, no joy there either! Can I not just change some current setting to prevent Firefox v 115.9lesr from saving the current 'Windows' and Tabs so that, when I again open Firefox, the previous session 'Windows' and Tabs would be used?!?

If I search "lemmy", I want to see that in the URL instead of the full search URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy. It makes it easier to copy the search query. If the query has spaces than they're written with +s in the URL. I remember months ago this ended up being the default even for pre-existing Firefox profiles, but then it was changed back.

Accessibility: How to enlarge left and center columns so they're readable on a small screen?

Hello,

I do most of my work on a 13" laptop, and I've recently installed Thunderbird to replace Windows Mail before it goes away. One of the things I loved about Mail is that it's very easy to read. Each column is scalable, and the text is well-prioritized and large enough to clearly see the sender's name and read the subject line. In Thunderbird, there's so much on my screen--all at about the same size and color--that I'm having trouble parsing the information, especially when trying to refer back to messages marked as read.

I know I can scale columns to adjust the width, but that doesn't increase the text size. I don't need or want to see 11 messages at once; there's simply too much information in each little box, all displayed at the same priority level, that it creates a wall of text that feels overwhelming, especially when I'm flipping between multiple client projects throughout the day. (Also, a side note: I have text set to 16pt, but it's displaying at 6 or 7, tops.)

My questions are these:

1. How do I enlarge the contents of the left and center columns so I can read them more easily on a small screen? I don't need to see 11 messages at once. Three or four is fine.

2. How do I flip the priority so the sender is bold and the subject is smaller or a lighter grey? I freelance for multiple clients, so it's more important for me to know who a message is from than what it's about (knowing the former usually answers the latter).

3. Is there a way to make the date and time smaller and lighter, especially for read messages? These are fourth-level priority items, but they're depicted on my screen with the same priority as everything else in every box in every column on my entire screen.

4. How do I stop Thunderbird from downloading every message I've ever received without disappearing them into a secret archive? It's downloading messages from 2018 that I'd like to keep on my mail server and see at a glance when logged directly into that service, but not see in my daily Thunderbird inbox.

5. How do I make Thunderbird show me ALL received messages in a thread when I select the drop down arrow from the center column? Right now, I have a thread with 6 messages from 3 people, but the 4 most recent messages (the ones I need) are only visible if I scroll down to the bottom of the right-hand pane. I'm sure there's a reason for hiding the 4 most recent messages, but that's too much guesswork for me. If Thunderbird can only display 3 messages in a thread, then how do I set it so that it shows the 3 most recent, not the 3 oldest?

I know this is a long message, and I apologize for that, but I've searched for answers before coming here and couldn't find what I needed.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hello dear community,

I have a program that continuously monitors the download folder under Windows 11 for a specific file and retrieves it. I download this file in Firefox, but the said program gives an error.

I have noticed that when files are downloaded in FireFox, they already appear in the Downloads folder with the corresponding file extension with 0 bytes and these are then apparently swapped or merged with the .parts file.

The problem is that the mentioned program now tries to retrieve the unfinished file, which then leads to an error.

Does anyone know if it is possible to customize Firefox so that the file only appears in the download folder when the download is fully complete?

Many thanks for your help :D

I normally open messages in tabs under exactly one circumstance: when I right-click on a message and explicitly open it in a tab.

I've found that (until I changed the handling of PDFs to "Save file") any PDFs that opened using Thunderbird's preview function would reopen if I closed and relaunched Thunderbird. This is not desired behavior.

I will also note that if I open Settings, it opens in a tab, rather than a separate window. This is neither expected nor desired (and my natural reaction is to click the close button on the window, closing Thunderbird, because "Settings" is something I expect to be in a window, not a tab. And that, too, reopens if I reopen Thunderbird.

And worst of all, those tabs that shouldn't be reopening at all are reopening in front of the main tab.

There was an extension called "Thunderbird-DontRestoreTabs," that would do exactly what I want, but that was made obsolete when the underlying extension technology was deprecated, so it is of no use in 115.9.0.
