Themes don't work properly in v78.0.1-You activate a given theme which starts up and looks proper until you close Thunderbird. When you start it again it no longer works even though it is still shown active in add-ons-themes.

After an extraordinary amount of time and trouble I was finally able to reinstall Thunderbird but it looks different. There is no menu button for one thing, so I can't find the number of the version I am using. I know whatever it is, it no longer is compatible with McAfee anti-spam. It also used to open directly to my inbox, and now I have to click "read messages" to get my new messages. No tools or options etc. Is it possible to re-format it like the earlier versions?

I help a couple of elderly People age 80+ using Thunderbird. Some of them manage regularily to remove the Mail- and Composition Toolbar. (see attached image for the two controls i mean) People tell me that they have not removed the hooks which control display of those two menue bars. But, nearly once every week, I have to bring them back.

I am desperately looking for a thunderbird setting or add-on which would allow me to block those controls to be klicked on by chance.

Any help is appreciated Thanks

Over the past few days, I've been having an issue with Firefox suddenly disabling and turning off add ons. Specifically, I have the Adblock Plus add on, to block and stop advertisements, spyware, and social media tracking. I will get a behavior in a website I'm not used to getting, like a window asking me if I wish to permit cookies, or sometimes a pop-up ad, and then I'll see that the ABP Stop Sign icon is no longer visible in the toolbar. I will have to go into the Add Ons control page, and click for it to be turned on again, and then go back and reload the page. What is happening here that Firefox is suddenly shutting down add ons? What is the solution to this?

Premise: I am not a complete noob. Situation: Thunderbird AMO (addons), always only download as file (.xpi file save dialog) but never install into TB itself (download dialog)

Currently even running 78.1.0 (x64) on Windows10/x64. But experienced this same with former TB 68.x.y normal releases. And even before. Cant remeber how or when this exactly started though, with which TB version that was.

I am experiencing this since quite I while now, but was never bothered, as all my currently installed add-ons apparently still update themselves.

But new addons via the AMO web-page built inside the special browser inside Thunderbird, always gives me a download file dialogbox when I browse and surf an addont on TB AMO which I have not yet installed.

Thinking back quite a number of years probably, I remember some times when maybe it was Firefox, but maybe it was Thunderbird, that the AMO area inside these applications had introduced some security measures and feature that required the user (me) to interact with the AMO page inside TB/FF and answer a question if the application (TB/FF) should allow the AMO area to interact and install those kind of add-ons into the application itself. It was some greenish puzzle piece of icon or symbol if I remember correctly and dont make things up.

This is the only thing I can think of and about that maybe somehow related to this issue.

I have also gone into the troubleshooting and about:config areas inside Thunderbird, but I dont see any relevant settings there and I dont see anything in the GUI of TB itself or anything inside the built-in AMO webpage browser there that maybe give me this download-instead of directly-installing-into the TB application itself.

Firefox works fine, and I have other windows machines and TB installations where this all works fine.

This TB installation and Windows machine rather came a long way. So I guess it might be some old files, old config, contradicting things?

Maybe some old .json files or whatever? Any help here?

And yes, I did find that mozilla help page talking about kind of similar thing/problem, that add-ons rather download than install, and of course your can still download the .xpi and drag/drop it over to the AMO or add-on GUI area of TB, but this is not a nice situation to have.

This support article (for Firefox though, and I am using AMO built-in "page" and not browsing third party sites externally nor browsing the AMO website via TB "browser" in some off-course way. I suppose. I guess.

<https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/unable-install-add-ons-extensions-or-themes#w_you-are-asked-to-download-the-add-on-rather-than-installing-it>

So basically, this TB setup here is always offering me .xpi downloads instead of installing the .xpi payloads and directly making use of them instead.

Any hints? Thanks. Regards.

I prefer to read my message in separate windows (as opposed to inline in the main window). So I often end up with quite a few of them hanging around. When I quit Thunderbird, they do not close with the main window.

I looked in options and looked for an add-on. Is the someway to have Thunderbird close all the sub-windows when the main one is closed?

A week ago I had a smoothly running Thunderbird automatic daily backup facility which worked really well. After installing a new hard drive this week and reinstalling Thunderbird v78, I find that there does not appear to be any backup, import or export add on that will work with this version. Am I mistaken or should I be looking for alternative email software as this facility is important to me with 7 email accounts?

Issue: After searching on Duck Duck Go ("test video") and clicking a link for a YouTube video the link opens in a new tab, but multiple tabs of the same page are opened. It is usually 2-3 tabs each time.

My Set Up: I opened YouTube and assigned it to open in a specified container. Not currently logged in to YouTube/Google services. I am running a fresh install of Firefox 79 on Windows 10. Everything is up to date as far as I can tell.

What I've Tried: I was trying to troubleshoot last night using refresh and ended up doing a complete reinstall this morning, including a deletion/recreation of Firefox account.

Intended Behavior: When clicking on a YouTube link from a tab not assigned to a container, I want it to open a (one single) new tab in the container that Google services are assigned to.

Any idea how to fix this behavior?

I made a new profile and was able to re-create the same bug in safe mode just to be sure. Anytime I try to open a swf file, firefox will not open it but instead ask what I should do with the file, over and over again. I have properly installed flash in the $MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH directory that firefox looks for; if I go to the plugins section, it shows adobe flash. I also have the ability to play flash files on websites, just not locally. On the profile I'm using to reproduce the error, the http_https_only tag in about:config is set to 'false', so [[this|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1172126]] is irrelevant. I made sure that firefox is indeed what is set to open these types of files via the xdg specifications that firefox searches for when looking what to open a file with via xdg-mime (firefox uses xdg-open on the linux version to see what to open with): xdg-mime default firefox.desktop application/x-shockwave-flash In $HOME/.config/mimeapps.list, it is properly listed in the line applications/x-shockwave-flash=firefox.desktop Firefox does have a .desktop file setup in /usr/share/applications, and xdg-mime does recognize firefox as the app to open swf files. I am able to open other types of files locally such as videos. Going to about:preferences and setting firefox to open swf files makes an infinite loop of firefox opening new tabs that must be then terminated. I'm not sure if an update broke firefox, as I was previously able to open local swf files. Thanks.

Does anyone know why Apple OS Voice Control does not work in Thunderbird? I wake up Voice Control, try to dictate a sentence in a new mail message window and nothing shows up. Dictation works in Ms Word, Safari browser, and all other apps.

My Macbook Pro used to have Dictation and Enhanced dictation. With the Catalina OS-- Enhanced Dictation was renamed "Voice Control". Standard dictation remains and it works in Thunderbird, but Voice Control is a lot better. The two cannot run simultanously. I am on 68.10.0 and Mac OS Catalina 10.15.6

Hope Accessibility is important and someone can assist. Wrist injury means I need dictation.
