I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Hello!

I recently synced my firefox on my laptop to the app I downloaded for my android phone, and I followed all the steps to be sure Ecosia would stay as my search engine. I added it, I even deleted other options, but couldnt delete all the default ones, and still the last default remaining is what automatically comes up when I go to search something and I have to manually change it to Ecosia every time. I cant seem to find a way to make an added search engine act as my default in the app. Any help?

Also, considering Mozilla's honorable reputation, I think adding Ecosia to the list of default options would be a really cool idea for people to learn about another organization with similar pure motives!! Plant more trees<3

    • attached picture: under customization of search engines, clicking the three dots by Ecosia and clicking edit, my only options do not include making it a default browser**

One of the things I have really liked about Thunderbird for years was the neat lining up of just one email address per line. So simple, neat elegant and easy to read. Now today it has been taken away. Just the same horrid clunky bunched together address layout that most email services provide. I don't know how to get the one address per line back. Can anyone help?

Dear community,

I'm looking for a tip who I can stop thunderbird (78.4.0 (32-bit)) from changing file names. When the files that are attached to a mail have special characters in their name, these are changed to percent-encoding (or URL encoding). Can I at all stop this?

Here an example of what I mean. I know that the file name is a bit crazy - it's just as a demonstration: original file name: test_mit äöü ÄÖÜ , , ß .txt received file name: test_mit äöü Ä%C3%96%C3%9C%20%2C%20%2C%20%C3%9F%20%2E%74%78%74.txt I will also include a screanshot of the sent mail in thunderbird, where one can see that the file name has all special characters.

What is also rather strange is why are only the first characters unchanged? Or what is thunderbird doing here (other examples)? original file name: test_mit äöü Ä.txt received file name: test_mit äöü Ä%2E%74%78%74.txt

original file name: test_mit äöü.txt received file name: test_mit äöü.tx%74

Thanks for any help..... Nick

I'm a LONG TIME T-Bird user - as far back as I can remember - and I never thought the day would come when I would be looking to ditch T-Bird, but the new version is SO HORRIBLE I am now seeking to ditch it.

Specifically, it is now NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to send an email to more than one person.

It used to be easy - just hit TAB after putting in one address, and it opens another TO field. And it was super easy to change TO to BCC to CC or REPLY-TO or whatever.

Then some moron decides that they want to kill T-Bird by giving it such an impossibly difficult interface that nobody will ever want to use it!

What is going on here?

Why is it impossibly difficult to send email to more than one person?

I am sure I'm not the only person who ever wants to send email to more than one recipient!

IMPOSSIBLE TO USE!!!

screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mp8ja4vt5tf0t26/Screenshot%202020-10-27%2012.16.02.png?dl=0

Is there anybody that can recommend a different mail agent?

Again, I used to love T-Bird to death, but this new version is so horrible I can not get my work done, even if I had extra hours every day to spend clicking endlessly around this incredibly stupid and unusable interface.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Folks help! How do I turn off or modify this brand new High Contrast bold font in Thunderbird 78.4 that just automatically updated? Especially the left preview nav window but basically all of it? The font and contrast and boldness hurt my eyes so bad I can't look at Thunderbird for very long and am getting nauseous. Seriously. Never had software do this to me before on my Mac. Have tried choosing different 'themes' under preferences but each one is as annoying as the next. Have tried changing the font and the font size but that isn't getting rid of the new boldness or the contrast. Even tried restarting THunderbird twice (but no I haven't tried re-booting my MacBookPro, no)

Help!

Have been a Thunderbird user and donor for prob 15 yrs now, and this is the most extreme makeover of the UI yet, seems like an awfullot of unneeded changes shoved on us. Why couldn't these things be options and features that are manually turned on and selected at each upgrade by the user instead of a wholesale change across the platform?

Can anyone advise me why I can't see the Evernote extension on my tool bar? or anywhere for that matter.

When I look at the add ons/ extensuons list, it is there but it no longer appears and therefore I can't clip to Evernote which is my standard go-to way of keeping things quickly.

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times but it makes no difference.

Is there a way to change the speed unit used by Firefox when downloading?

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth. Or, to compare the download speed to any of the speed tests I have done

The last three times Firefox updated, the Fox icon on the Windows 10 task bar was replaced by a generic one. To restore the Fox icon, the generic one has to be unpinned, but that deactivates it and does not remove it. Then, selecting the generic icon results in a missing item error message and the error box has a selection to remove it. Then a new shortcut needs to be created from the Firefox exe file in the Program Folder and dragged to the task bar. Any idea what is happening and why, and preferably how to prevent it?

I'm running a few HTTP servers at home. I'm running an OpenWrt router which allocates an IP address to these servers.

I can connect to them on Firefox Desktop by navigating to: [hostname].lan.

For instance:

http://httpserver.lan

On Firefox for Android, I cannot, I get a 404. I can only navigate to this HTTP server by entering the IP directly: http://192.168.1.120.

I have the feeling that this has something to do with internal DNS resolving.

I would like to be able to connect to these servers by entering: http://httpserver.lan.

Recently something changed with my Firefox for Android (Samsung Galaxy J3 Orbit) and when watching a video in fullscreen and landscape orientation on a website (embedded in site i.e. not YouTube), the picture "crowds out" the progress and control bar that would normally appear at lower edge of screen after clicking once on the video. The progress and controls are still there, but too far "off screen" to access them in fullscreen mode. So my workarounds are to watch in normal web view with the controls or in fullscreen without controls. I tested the same activity in Chrome and it works fine, meaning I can watch the video in fullscreen and still access the progress/controls on demand by clicking on the video during playback. Please help! Thanks.
