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 need to move my storage location from the default on Win 11 (user>app data>roaming etc) to My Documents folder on the same drive (C:). Reason being I cannot include the app data folder in my daily backup schedule. I have read a couple of examples but they are not clear to me. Can someone give me a clear process without any geek talk. I would truly appreciate it. Thanks.

Firefox Sync - about:config settings not applied on other devices

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.

Just moved from win 7 to win11. Pity me. Used sync prior to using FF on 11. Sites I remained signed into with 7 now have to be signed in every time with win11. Even if Firefox isn't closed between visits. ex: Youtube, forum sites, etc. I don't know if this is FF or win11 doing it. I didn't change any settings in FF on 11. Any help or direction appreciated.

I'm having a problem where on a default installation of firefox (on linux mint 21) where Settings > Privacy & Security > History is always set to "Use custom settings for history" when I restart firefox. This is a default installation. Even if I do the folowing...

1 Close firefox 2 Remove the /home/myname/.mozilla folder 3 Start firefox and change Privacy & Security > History to "Remember history" 4 Close and restart firefox

The Settings > Privacy & Security > History is always reset to "Use custom settings for history" even on a DEFAULT install. I realize that this is because there is a history/cookie setting that is NOT the default, but I didn't set any non-defaults. This is a default installation with a brand new profile. Any ideas what could be causing this?

If anyone can help me with this, I'd appreciate it:

Any anyone ever had Thunderbird Email Filter REALLY work? I never have.

- Some emails do get sent to my Junk Folder (where I have it assigned to go to). - Some emails are noted as Junk, but not filtered to the Junk Folder (please see Image). - Some emails are still coming thru as normal emails, with no notification.

I've added an Image of how I set the Email Filter for every SPAM email.

Thank you in advance.
