I have been having difficulties with Thunderbird account definitions for 6 months. I didn't recognize it as a definitions problem because I hadn't made any Thunderbird changes. I finally have all but 1 of my 5 email accounts working... but, my now-working Gmail account has a lot of extraneous folders (like multiple trash bins, etc; see attached).

Gmail shows 2 lists of incoming email: "Inbox" and "All mail". The "Inbox" folder is incomplete, most recent email shown is from last August; the "All Mail" folder appears to contain a complete list of emails for the Gmail account.

Can I get rid of all the extraneous folders? How?

For years I've had the same problem of basic resets on my custom settings everytime Firefox updates. I've read hundreds of posts, complaints and suggestions.

The best suggestions I've found are to use both userContent.css and changes to the about:config file. I have actually created a .txt file of unique about:config lines and settings so I can copy, paste, and set to my settings without having to look everything back up again. It still takes me 10 minutes, but at least it gets done my way.

A solution I think all of us would love to see are simple instructions on how to back up the current about:config settings and reinstate them AFTER an update so our choices stay as we want them. This shouldn't be too difficult. Export settings are available for all kinds of parts of Firefox, Thunderbird and add-ons. How about making that a priority in the next update?

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)

The screenshot/snipping tool was a great addition to Firefox and I use it regularly. However I'm writing a tutorial on Google Maps at the moment and it would be nice if I had the option to select the same region of screen each time as I invoke some of Google Map's tools. So ideally I could lock the selection rectangle position and also its dimensions as I snapshot each page to show the steps involved in using Map's tool. Preset aspect ratios for the selection rectangle would be useful also. Maybe it's possible to do all this already?

Recently (past several months) firefox has been taking every light mode theme I choose and changing it to dark mode. Do. Not. Want.

Once a theme has been "changed", I can never use it in light mode again. So I'm left mode-hopping in the hopes of being able to get a readable light mode for a couple days, until I have to change again.

I've checked other questioners but their answers didn't solve this.

Like many others, I am of two minds on the recent change to TB opening pdf files in the browser. On the plus side, it is faster an more convenient. But there is negative aspect - sometimes I need to do things to the file and that is not possible in the TB viewer. Whence the suggestion: instead of the drop-down menu with Open, Save as, etc. why not have in addition to (or instead of) OPEN a menu OPEN WITH. Even better, the open with menu could be populated in preferences by the apps we wish to use.

I tried overriding the colour in chrome.css which works... when I define a random colour like #111111 but it doesn't work when I define the desired #e4e4ea colour. I assume Paint 3D & GIMP are giving the correct hexadecimal colour codes when using their Colour Picker's.

Hello all, Yesterday I tried to add another website to the rows of shortcuts. As usual I entered the Title, the website url and another url for the custom image location(optional)

However, this time after clicking the Preview button it does display an image, BUT after clicking the Save button it does not display the thumbnail image on the actual tile.

I tried it now with several different websites and NONE are displaying the images. I do have three rows of shortcut tiles with websites that DO display the thumbnail image but those are all from a few weeks back.

Why is this suddenly not working correctly any more??

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

I am seeing odd behavior recently after upgrading to 91.5.0

I will have my inbox open, I will click on a message subject, hold the CTRL key down and click on one or two other messages till they are all selected - then, holding the mouse button down, I will drag those messages over to the left hand pane and drop them into another mailbox folder. I have been doing this for decades.

Suddenly, when I move my mouse, with the highlighted message(s) 'attached' - to a mailbox folder, the mailbox folder opens immediately and I lose my selected messages and cannot drop them into the folder

It doesn't happen on every drop - but enough that what should have taken me 2-3 minutes this morning to clean out a weekend's worth of inbox has now taken me 10-15 minutes because I'm so frustrated at having to try 3-4 times to drop messages into a folder!

Is there some new configuration that I need to set to *not* open the folders just because I'm hovering over them with the mouse button held down?

I have nearly 1,000 folders for e-mail, and keep up a constant, and heavy e-mail correspondence. The filters I have created send new mail to the proper folders, but most of the time that new mail does not increment the bolded new, unread e-mail count for those folders, so I have not idea there is new e-mail unless I click on each folder, in turn, through all 900+ folders.

How can I get new mail in the various folders to be added to the bolded count of unread e-mail in those folders?
