Hello. I faced a problem. When I receive or send an email using Mozilla Thunderbird, what happens is the last letter of my file extension is replaced with underscore. For example Instead of seeing document.docx file in attachment I see document.doc_. That happened as I think after updating to 78.6.0 Version. Before I had 68.12.1. If I roll back everything works fine. My OS is Windows 7 Pro x64.

firefox tab name edit: can a user name tab at will ?

right now it has LOGO and "Home" but i want it to read something like OSC-US Office of Special Counsel-Independent Agency-Home because i just do.

i have three other bookmarks for OSC: i can edit the bookmark name from "properties" but have never known whether i can also edit the name shown on a tab.

LOGO Home isn't too helpful to me. but even just knowing that i CAN'T edit tab names will be helpful to know, so i can stop thinking about it and get some sleep after another bag of chocolate-chip cookies. being an american right now is plenty stressful.

who named them "cookies" anyhow?-is it bc they kind of leave crumbs? did i win?

thank you for helping. i do appreciate it.

I've read a lot of help on this - almost all of them say, "As you have discovered there are three visible TO/Cc/Bcc fields..." and: " type or select email address and press enter to move to next TO field".

None of that works. I have only ONE visible "To" field. It has no controls to change it to a Cc or Bcc one. There is a "CC" or "BCC" option beside the "From" field. Pressing Enter at the end of an address does precisely nothing.

Another copy of TB on another computer has all the features you gaily point to - but mine doesn't. Where do I find it?

Until the recent Tbird updates, I could set the fonts to Georgia, navy, and compose and receive my email (to myself) in Georgia. Now, I compose in Georgia, it leaves as Georgia, but when I view it in my inbox it is displayed in a sans serif font.

If I view the source of the incoming email, it is clearly set to Georgia - yet Tbird displays the incoming email as sans serif (though still navy).

It means that I can never see the sent message as my recipient sees it (assuming they can display Georgia, of course).

Why has Tbird made this change and how can I fix it? There doesn't seem to be as much control over fonts as there was. I am using UTF8 encoding to display £€ correctly.

I can't see anything online about this.

I have three Thunderbird accounts each with its own email address through gmail. I've had these accounts/addresses for years. Recently, when I send an email from one account (using it's assigned email address), Thunderbird is automatically switching the "from" to another one of my accounts/emails. By way of example: When I send a message using my "ABC" account/email, Thunderbird (or maybe it's gmail) switches the account/email to my "XYZ" account/email. While the "ABC" message is saved in Thunderbird's Sent folder (showing the ABC "from" address), it also shows up/is saved in the gmail sent folder (showing the XYZ "from" address). The recipient sees the XYZ "from" address, even though I sent the email through Thunderbird with the ABC "from" address. Please help...this is driving me nuts

Hi,

I am an avid user of Firefox on Windows/Linux/Android. The password saving/auto-filling works great on my Windows and Linux devices. I like that the master password allows me to authenticate before any user credentials are filled in. I did however notice that on my Android Phone, there's no way to force authentication when filling in user credentials. I consider this a great privacy risk, considering that if anyone were to get access to my phone, they would without any hassle get access to a bunch of my accounts. I checked in the settings, and I cannot find a setting for it anywhere.

I am running the latest version of Firefox from Google Play. Firefox version: 84.1.4 (Build #2015785883) Phone: Samsung S10 running Android 10

Thank you.

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.
