Hello, I use Thunderbird with the system default theme (dark on win 11). It is great, and when reading Emails, the background is white. So no mails get messed up. But when replying to mails, the background of the textarea is black and some mails do have black text. So it is impossible to write a mail and keep calm.

Is it in the config or somewhere else possible, to change the color of the textarea to always white / bright?

I do not need any information on how to change the theme for everything to bright as this is not an option.

Thank you!



win 11, 115.4.3 (64-Bit)

Firefox keeps offering to translate websites, your new feature.

I neither want it to, nor do I appreciate ads, because it is simply you advertising your new product.

I have looked at the settings and there are 0 languages for which I've set it so it will offer me to translate and 0 for which it will do. Besides the fact I do speak and read multiple languages; it is not a feature I am interested in.

So when I set it so it will not bug me about it and every time I enter a foreign language site the little pop-up shows; that's some serious unwanted ads and also clearly FAR more tracking than FF is even supposed to be doing.

I have used firefox for nearly 15 years, but I'm honestly wondering if I should find another privacy focused browser One that doesn't spam me with little pop-ups over it's latest ill-conceived stupid feature.

So you could help by actually NEVER-EVER under any fucking circumstances show this stupid translation pop-up UNLESS I put I request it to do so in the settings or at the very LEAST allow me to turn it off.

I'm running Thunderbird 115.6.0. I used to have a little icon of a cloud, and a button marked New Message (to compose), both just above the listing of mail and local folders in Thunderbird's left-hand pane. Then I clicked on something (that I thought was for something else) and those two icons are gone. I have looked until I'm blue in the face but can't identify whatever it is that will bring these back. Can someone clue me in? Many thanks!

We still use some Dell 13g servers equipped with idrac 8. When I'm trying to launch the virtual Console the window opens up but nothing shows. This used to work fine in previous versions of Firefox. I can't tell from which version it stopped but it's not long ago. Also idrac 9 console works fine in Firefox When trying to open console idrac 8 in Chrome it works fine Any idea what could be causing it? Any config switch to tweak?

I've been a Firefox fan for years. I thought I'd try Thunderbird. I'm in need of some help please as I'm going round in circles.

I am trying to link my btinternet email account to Thunderbird. Thunderbird cannot do it automatically so I have to enter the details manually.

I have all the right settings according to BT: Incoming POP 995, SSL enabled but not StartTLS. Outgoing Port 465, SSL enabled not StartTLS. mail.btinternet.com is used.

The User Name and Password are correct but Thunderbird cannot connect to the account. There are no Firewall issues.

Something is happening because BT have notified me of potential unauthorised access and I have to reset my BT password. Even when I enter the new BT Password Thunderbird cannot link to the account.

Any suggestions as to what might be causing the problem? Thanks.

I have 4 accounts with different names but all with the same domain name (name1@samedomain.com, name2@samedomain.com ...). The first one set up perfectly and works. The 2nd and the 3rd can't retrieve mail from the server (didn't try the 4th yet). The SSL ports are the same for all. The passwords happen to be the same for all. (I haven't tried changing the 2nd and 3rd passwords as that seems unlikely to be the problem.) When initially setting up the 2nd or the 3rd I get a "Sending of password for user name2@samedomain.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.yyy.zzz responded: [AUTH Authentification failed." I've checked the passwords on both the client and the server ends multiple times and they are the same. Then, of course, periodically I get a pop-up with "Login to server pop.xxx.yyy with username name2@samedomain.com failed. When I go to the Account Settings screen with the 3 accounts and click on each Server Settings one after another, the only thing that changes is the User Name, yet the first account receives mail and the other 2 don't so everything is correctly set up. As an aside, I CAN SEND emails from the 2nd and 3rd accounts but can only RECEIVE and SEND from the 1st. Any help appreciated.

I have been experiencing a problem with Cloudflare specifically on one site (character.ai) and when the verify you are human pops up. It takes me in a seemingly infinite loop. On the Cloudflare community site they say it could be because of things like adblock but even without any adblock or anything of the sort on it does the same thing. Sadly Cloudflare community doesn't support being used on Firefox. So maybe they don't support being used on Firefox in general? I have contacted the actual websites support but they don't seem to even read submitted inquiries because I never hear anything back from them except the automated message they received it. It is now preventing me from using certain things in general which as before it wasn't that big of a deal but recently they changed the site layout and still allowed you to use the old layout but the verification blocks you from using the old layout. The first one is one from a couple of weeks ago when it only effected me trying to open things in a separate tab and the second one is the newer one which prevents me from accessing the old layout. I'm not sure what to do about it since nothing I specifically could do to solve it has helped. I have opted into sharing data under troubleshooting IDK how well that'll help.

My Firefox Browser on (Windows 11) updated on 23rd March 2024. Now my History and Bookmarks have been deleted (but not cookies for some reason). yes, it is my correct profile as I checked the dates and also double checked it against a backup I made 2 weeks ago.

Have included an image of my 'more troubleshooting information' details - I'm sure this is supposed to have more data on the page?

If there is no way to recover my hisotry and bookmarks, I see there in my profile folder is a 'bookmarksbackup' folder which contains .jsonlz4 files, one of which was saved on the 21st March 2024. I know book marks are .json files, can anyone tell me how to turn a .jsonlz4 file to a .json?

[Oh, I pressed to add here my 'troubleshooting information' as directed by this forum page and it said it couldn't automatically do it, and when I pressed 'manual', it opened that over this page and so when I pressed 'back' it had naturally deleted this post so I've had to retype everything from memory, thanks so much Mozilla for that. How about a warning that this will happen?]

Cox.com has decided to no longer have their own email server and switched their accounts to yahoo. I can read my email directly on Yahoo, but can't get their imap to work. I changed the imap and smtp settings to yahoo. Also, the email login has changed and I changed that in Thunderbird. With Cox, the login was just "username" and now it is "username@cox.net". When I made these changes in the account settings, my email account has disappeared from the inbox, but it is still in account settings. I am using a unified inbox with several accounts.

Cox will not help me with this, and I have been on hold with yahoo for an hour with no response. I have been messing with this for two days so I hope you can help me.
