Is it possible that a button "check for updates" can be added on the update tab rather than wait for Thunderbird in the background, check it please?

I'm not always able to 'catch' the update notification popup when it arrives, and I do not wish to allow the automatic updates without my permission. I have a rather 'sensitive' situation of the internet. Would it not possible to add a button on the tab updated to allow us to check the updates manually please? This would greatly help my situation.

Thank you for your time


When the menu bar is not the AppMenu button to access the menu bar items. Some people also call the menu "Burger" in the upper right. Unfortunately, the corresponding support article is gone.

It would make not much sense for me to put a "Find updates" button in the Update menu tab, but that's just me.

Please mark it as "resolved" when your problem is actually solved.

Thank you.

    I don't think that you can change the size of the police with captions. I think that because it is a 'standard' you are limited to what this standard supports only. If the manual says: you can change the font size then it probably still says: you can change the fonts familty. I was never able to change the size of police or the family. The manual should be rewritten to prevent people to mislead him.

  • I have two problems: 1) a theme that does not change the look of my Firefox at all 2) there is no button 'disable' for my themes only 'delete '. Help, please!

    Okay, so my problems are...
    (1) I downloaded a theme for the first time and when I did, it worked perfectly fine. After updating, I download the theme again and it helped, but the theme will not change the look of my browser. When I tried one of the relevant articles, I cleared my cookies and cache and downloaded the theme (A Blue Fox), installed and turned on, and it worked perfectly fine! I tried to upload another (Pink Fox), one installed and activated, but it did not work. Instead, he returned to the default theme. So I tried to clear my cache and cookies again and repeat the process, but now after downloading, it says "error".... "I don't know if it says"Error Downloading"or"installation error ". Now, I tried to download it again after turning off my computer and turn it back on again, but (today), the two has not applied to my browser. They both had the same look... by default! Please tell me what is the problem!
    (2) in my "Add-ons Manager" page, on the appearance tab, there is no button disable for my modules. Only the "delete" button is present.

    Please help me!

    NOTE: I already tried to reset Firefox, but it does not solve my problem.

    You do not disable a theme, but you choose another theme if you want to change the theme.

    Remove button is for when you no longer want this theme.

    You must select a theme and then close and restart Firefox, if you want to use this theme.

    If this does not work, then you may have a problem with the prefs or something interferes.

    If you don't keep changes after a reboot then see:

  • How is it possible that Firefox 3.6.28 with intelligent search functions and the latest version does not work?

    I noticed that when I'm on Firefox 3.6.28, try to look for something, not looking but sometimes opens directly the most appropriate result. It's amazing and really fast. Why this feature is not included in the latest version.
    Thank you

    When you type words in the address bar, Firefox will search using any motor is selected in the search bar. You can install a "Browse by name" or a "I m Feeling Lucky" search engine

    If you want the search engines separate in the address bar and the search bar, install the module keyword search.

    The reasoning was that 'Browse by name' and "I m Feeling Lucky" are far from perfect. Rather than risking to send users to sites that are not what they were looking for, it was decided that always show the results of the research was a better option.

  • search for the name of view that can be added to the responsibility

    Hi Experts,

    How to find the name of view that can be added to that have been attributed to see the views of Catalog under quotes and orders.

    Help, please.

    Thank you and best wishes in advance


    I guess that you do not specifically a particular display. If you want to find all the views in the Catalog under the orders & quotes you can follow the steps below:

    In the tab tools-flat - Select - display Template Web items:

    a. catalog views under citations: name that quotecatalog query * and GParentView in the catalog.

    You will be able to find the points of view. I am not correct on all points of view related to quotes. Choose from the list.

    b. catalog views under orders: name as orderEnrty query * and GParentView in the catalog.

    You will be able to find the points of view. I am not correct on all points of view related to quotes. Choose from the list.

    Try this and let me know.

  • Can I add a button print for Thunderbird?

    Is it possible to add an icon of 'button' or printer print at Thunderbird without having to click on the file or more to get to print. By example, if I see an email that I want to print it would be faster if I had a printer icon or button click.

    Your method is perfectly ok.
    Whether you use the "menu bar" - file, editing, display etc.
    'View' > 'Toolbars' > 'customize '.

    that although you and I use it, it is not always enabled by default, so why I gave the other option via the "Mail Toolbar.

    If people see that the "Mail Toolbar" - icon Menu, get Messages, write etc.
    then they use the Menu icon and not locate this info under "View".
    It would be here:
    'Icon menu' > 'Options' > 'toolbars '.

    It would be a lot easier if the developers had used the same generic terms and same logic in where are the toolbar info little matter in the bar under icon Menu or menus.

  • Is it possible to ignore white space when exporting PNG files. Not the background / work plan

    I have icons, which have white features, mask the other lines to create my icons. Instead of me will expanding the traits and then using pathfinder to create transparent traces to finally create a fill black "single", is it possible to simply export and ignore white? Is there a script that would exist? That would make my life so much easier.


    Ignore the white on the smallest sprocket, but white on the cotyledon is necessary for the icon. To make this work, I would usually expand all items and use pathfinder to create my forms. It is a bit tedious doing lots of icons. I would like to know if there is an easier way to do it.

    Thank you!

    Make sure that 'White' is in the Swatch Panel, then choose white as "Transparent" and "8-bit" PNG in the color table.

    Or you can rework your works of art to be truly transparent.

    Or fix the PNG in Photoshop.

  • Reset button does not not on javascript added to the reset button?

    I created a form button using the javascript below, to format the button from 0-1-2-3-0 with each click...

    This form also has a reset button, but if I sitting on a 3 button and click on the reset button it leaves a 3 does not reset.

    Is there a way that I can put the button Reset to 0 field, or even just an empty space or '-' to default?

    (with the value by default as white would be the best option for me - then I wouldn't even need the 0 option)

    mouse to the top of action script to increase the number of caption button;

    var Nlimit = 4; maximum limit of more than 1 for number of legend;

    var nCaption = Number ( ()); get the number of caption button;

    nCaption ++; Legend of the increment;

    nCaption = nCaption % Nlimit; modulo Nlimit or 0 - Nlimit - 1; (nCaption); set number of legend;

    end action mouse;

    Using a script like this:

    this.getField("Text1").required = false;
    this.getField("Text2").required = false;
