So, I want to run Firefox from the command line withoug address bar and in a new window. I found that I can enable ssb and try it with: firefox -ssb http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This doesn't work, so I tried: firefox -ssb -url http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This opens it, not in a new window but in a new tab of an already existing session, and the ssb argument doesn't seem to work. Then, I tried: firefox -new-window http://127.0.0.1:6680/ This does work but again, there's still the address bar. The -ssb argument works with websites like google.com etc. but not local sites like the address I mentioned there. What do I do?

Version 78.2.2 is not working in IMAP. Somehow one person in my office had their Thunderbird auto update to Ver 78.2.2 and when it did, she was no longer able to send or receive emails. I had to do a system restore on her entire computer to roll back to a previous version. I accidentally updated mine to Ver 78.2.2 when I clicked "About" to find my version. But since mine is set-up as POP3 account, it did not disable my send/receive abilities. At least I believe that is why mine still worked after the update and hers did not.

Also, I completely dislike the folder tree on the left side of the screen. It used to have easy to recognize folder icons. Now all the folders are static outlines of a folder. And to make it worse, the folder icon is bolder than the text info, so those folder icons kind of glare at you. If you are going to minimize the folder appearance by removing the manila coloring, at least do not use a bold outline of a folder. Also, I would prefer when using the option to add a color to a folder that the color be a fill as they were in Ver68, rather than a stroke in Ver 78.

I've attached screen shots from two different computers so you can see the difference between the two version trees and appearance.

Additionally, I noticed at the bottom of the open email on Ver 78, this message: "Quick Reply is temporarily disabled due to needing rewriting for Thunderbird 68+."

I used to have a delete shortcut on the menu bar, when I try to add it from customize it is grayed out and not letting me use it.

It would be nice if I could roll back my version of Thunderbird to a previous one without having to do an entire system restore of my computer.

However, there are some things I like better, conversational view is great in that it shows what folders the rest of the conversation resides in. Some of the things I used to have to go to the task bar for are right there in the email, like source and header views. There might be other things that might make it more useful. Will know more as I use it for a few days/weeks.

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

I'm a fairly recent convert to T'bird & but have successfully added several email a/c, all set to save p/w. However, occasionally, I am still asked to enter a p/w. Not a problem, but at 73, I am prone to the odd lapse & enter it incorrectly. The options I then get have me stumped - 3 choices: Retry/Enter New P'word/Cancel (sometimes for more than one a/c at same time). Clearly 'cancel' solves nothing - merely makes window disappear. And I don't need/want to change the p/w (cos I do know them, well sort of...). So 'Retry' the obvious choice, expectation being a new window will pop up in which to insert the correct p/w. BUT, nooo... it simply 'does what it says on the tin' - retries the incorrect p/w I just entered! Which invokes same 'incorrect p/w, Retry/New/Cancel' loop. I can't seem to find any way out of this loop apart from getting a fresh invite to enter p/w by exiting/restarting T'bird- am I missing s'thing/is this really just the way it is (err, why - isn't stupidity defined as doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result...?)/is there something else I can/should do?

For some reason my banking statements don't open. Also, some other pdf's won't open either. I think this started with FF79 and now on FF80.0.1. I was hoping the bug would be fixed but it obviously hasn't. My settings have always been the same for years without any problems. I accused my bank of not keeping up with FF but after other pdf's weren't opening, then I realised (as my bank did) that it's a bug in FF. I use Acrobat Reader as my default and I've tried everything others have tried on this forum. I've only ever used FF but I reluctantly used Edge and it works. Will FF fix this problem as I don't wish to use another browser? Not sure what FF did with the new updates but it has caused problems.

I contacted this forum a day ago as my Thunderbird email stopped sending or receiving emails at exactly the time that the new version of TB was auto up-dated on my computer. I asked if I could roll back to the previous version of TB and received the following message:

"Yes, you can: you go on tb download page and search for 68.0.9 Download software and install it. On last step of the installation do NOT select to start tb After installed go to run (search run, select that run app) and write on that small field this: thunderbird --allow-downgrade Press enter and that's all. You will have 68 working. After that go to Option - Update - change update to manually and disable update service. After that you can search for updates manually (should suggest 68.12 - this one you can update). Please note that you will need to search on add-ons pages the versions which are working with 68.0* - those with 78* will not work"

Unfortunately I can not find the Download for 68.0.0. Am I overlooking something here? I may need step by step guidance. Thank you

Rather the one's they display just below the video when viewing can the RegretsReporter also deal with those?

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

This seems to have been broken in the recent flurry of 78.x releases.

I am currently using 78.2.2.

I have verified that "Personal Address Book" is searched but several others I have are not, even when selected as the defaults for the Global Composing Preferences (Default startup directory in the address book window is the only option really).

Overall impression of 78.x is pretty poor, for a long time it was locking up regularly during composition. Now it performs well, but doesn't search my long standing address books.

Thanks for any suggestions.
