I run Firefox on two windows machines, with identical settings and extensions - I regularly sync across them, and have all my passwords saved to a local file, just in case. Recently, one machine (the only one with Win11) has begun disconnecting me from Mozilla every time I close Firefox, and wiping the saved passwords. I have to sign in to Mozilla and import all the passwords every time i reopen Firefox. I have tried all the refresh, reinstall options and nothing seems to fix it. Any ideas what's going on and how to fix?

I have 10 email accounts in my Thunderbird 115.12.2 (64-bit) and I am using Microsoft Windows 10 Pro and all my sent, draft, archives and templates are going into a different folder. I want them to go into the folder from which the email was sent but they are all going into the email tinakeeling@att.net.

I have changed it to reflect the correct folder but then a few days later and every time I restart Thunderbird the program changes the folders back to tinakeeling@att.net

I have even unchecked the box "place a copy in" and when Thunderbird is restarted it reverts back.

What can I do to fix this issue?

Despite what one contributor claims (that, "saving custom colours outside a session doesn't happen, as it has never been a windows feature") it certainly used to. And I'm talking MS-Paint in Windows 3.11 !

However, back to today... I keep Thunderbird open and minimized as this feature got broken or lost long ago and I need custom colours to be retained. This latest release (115.9.0 (32-bit)), however, has even lost the ability to keep a colour pallet from one email to the next.

Quite frustrating, as I use different colours for different clients. soem have very specific codes, which I have to replicate each time I am about to send.

I use Thunderbird (TB) 115.13.0 64-bit on Windows 11. TB displays in 1 window with 4 tabs (Mail, calendar, address book, tasks). In the Address Book (AB) tab when I double click on a contact to edit or view it, a new window used to open. I found that most useful. For a while now, the contact opens in a pane in the address book tab: -Either a large pane to the right of the existing AB panes, requiring the TB window to be widened such that it takes up most of my 27" display (when table layout is not chosen). -Or a new pane at the bottom of the address book tab which makes a small area to edit, and a small area to view the list of contacts (when Table Layout is not chosen). Question: Can TB Contacts be configured to open a contact in a new window (or new tab) instead of a new pane in the AB tab? Thanks!!!

I have an IMAP account which receives general email and email from a number of mailing lists.

I only want to see the mailing list email on my laptop, where I run Thunderbird (115.12.2).

So (on the laptop) I have Message Filters to move the email for each mailing list to a corresponding folder. But with IMAP I cannot add a rule to delete the email from the IMAP server. (I guess that is because folders in the IMAP accounts Inbox are resynced with the server ?)

What I'd *really* like to do is have a 'Retention Policy' (in the 'Folder Properties') to 'Remove From Server' -- so that anything appearing in such a folder would be removed from the server and/or not resynced with the server.


What I have done is create the mailing list folders in 'Local Folders'. This has the effect I want: it removes the mailing list email from the IMAP server.

However, the Local Folders languish at the bottom in the Folder Pane. I really want the mailing list folders to appear in the Inbox (for the account in question -- one of several I have).

Curiously: in the 'Saved Search Properties' for the Inbox, I can go to "Select the folders to search" and I can see all the Local Folders. I can select mailing list folders and when I 'Update', those folders disappear from Local Folders, but they do *not* appear in the Inbox. When I restart Thunderbird, those folders magically reappear in the Local Folders and still do not appear in the Inbox -- even though they are still selected to do so !

Even if it was possible to show some local folders in the Inbox they would not be in the Inbox for the account.

I do not know how Thunderbird knows which folders are local and which ones are not. Is it possible to change a folder setting somewhere so that a folder in an account's inbox is actually local (or is treated as local) ?

Ive been with Firefox since 0.4 20+years and am thinking of binning this browser. The Firefox updates wipe your bookmarks ,your page set up with the 4 rows and your preferred sites they then push in the boxes last visited or recommenced stories i had to reinstall and older version,get bookmarks from a different drive i have to get back to where i was.

  I have turned off updates but am continually bombarded with download latest version,Firefox used to be great ,you got what you want,no adds,no pushing stuff its starting to feel like google chrome.
  So before i bin it,is there any way you can save ALL your setting as you like them and reinstall them with your preferences as was?     If not i will give Duck duck go, a go as my new browser.

Hi all..

A while back I was able to define a GPO that would disable automatic updates in our little pool of machines for our small office and it worked without issue (using the "DisableAppUpdate" key).. But now I'm trying to set some defaults for "mailnews.default_sort_order" and change the value from the default of 1 to a value of 2..

Anyway, I've tried a handful of methods after reading through this page on the topic.. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious and hoping that someone can enlighten me..

I've tried manually setting registry keys even on one of the machines and Thunderbird won't pickup the changes for whatever reason.

I'm setting values in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Thunderbird

The only thing that works is the above mentioned DisableAppUpdate.

In the image below are some of my iterations through trying various things and none are working ATM (this is what I see on the target computer).. Can someone clue me in on what I'm doing wrong?

I've just created a Mozilla account so that I can sync my customised about:config settings between devices but I'm struggling to get it working. For each setting I have customised that isn't on the default whitelist, I have created a new boolean setting as follows:

'services.sync.prefs.sync.xyz' where xyz is the setting I have customised.

Each of these newly created boolean settings is set to 'true'.

When I 'sign in and sync' on a new device and check about:config, the values of these custom settings is not changed from the default.

Have I missed something in my understanding of the process?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Hello,

I'd like to know if there is a way to permanently suppress that popup "open firefox in troubleshoot mode" (an image is attached to this post). Context is that we are running automated software tests (websites) using Firefox on VMs. It can happen that the Firefox processed is killed (for example, during a clean-up after a test run) and then the popup appears on the next test run.

That the browser is forcefully shutdown sometimes is unavoidable and we don't have much control over the VMs (so no reset is possible, for example). I'm really just looking for a way to suppress this popup and just start Firefox again.

Kind regards

How do I prevent Firefox/duckduckgo from instead of opening a newspaper site (eg: www.nytimes.com), INSTEAD opening the site with "feed" in front of it (eg: feed://www.nytimes.com)?

The web browser does this all the time, and I almost never want the site with "feed:" in front of it.

Advice on how to change the settings to prevent this would be welcome. I suspect this happened with an update but ever since has been continuous.

Only happens on my laptop, not on my iPhone. I have an Apple M1 chip MacBookPro, running MacOS Sonoma 14.5. My Firefox browser is the latest version.
