Re: Flash and BBC

Many thanks for your help. I have installed the latest version of Flash available and all seems to be working fine.

Flash and BBC

I am using 64 bit Pale Moon 27.4.0 in 64 bit Windows 10 (Creators update). Today, I was reading the report of the cricket test match and successfully watched all the video clips included. However, when I tried to listen to the live radio commentary, I received a message telling me "you need Flash to...

Google maps

I have found recently (perhaps two? updates) that Google Maps works briefly then the map area goes to a black screen from which no recovery seems to be possible. Never used to be a problem.

Re: fossamial keeps email marked as unread after being opened

I sometimes find the same.
Should it not be Tools>Options>Advanced>Reading and Display?
I don't have any "Preferences" in the Edit menu.

Connection to bt internet

I keep receiving the message "connection to server mail.btinternet.com failed". This morning, about six times in quick succession. After closing FossaMail and reopening, I was able to get my emails but, almost immediately, the connection broke again. Does anyone else have a similar problem and is it...

Junk mail classification

I have been receiving a daily email summary from a local newspaper for several years. Normally it arrives in my Inbox, no problem. However, from time to time, I find that FM has decided to class it as junk. Similarly, I exchange messages weekly with a group of golfing companions; mail from one of th...

Two Draft folders

I have somehow managed to acquire two separate folders, one named Draft and the other one Drafts in my main account. Can I get rid of one and, if so, how and which one?

Re: Vanishing mails on one computer

Not sure whether to extend this thread or start a new one. Anyway. I have a problem with one email when my mouse accidentally slipped out of my hand (arthritis problem) as I was moving it from Sent to another folder. It disappeared completely from sight. I hunted through all of my folders but no sig...

Duplicate draft folders

I have somehow managed to have two separate folders in my main email account, one called Draft and the other called Drafts. How do I go back to having just one?

Re: Arranging incoming mail by date

Nope. That doesn't actually work so it looks like setting each folder individually is the only option. I shall look into the addon possibility. Thanks again.

Re: Arranging incoming mail by date

Thanks again for the help. What I have just discovered is that by holding Control at the same time, I can select all of the folders I want at any one time and then apply sort preferences to all of them simultaneously. Not sure why this did not occur to me a long time ago - possibly because it can't ...

Re: Arranging incoming mail by date

Thanks for the suggestion but, sorry, it doesn't work. The setting that you make using Sort By etc only applies to the folder that you happen to have open at the time and you still have to go through each one individually. If you try to do it using the name of the account at the top of the folders, ...

Arranging incoming mail by date

I have recently installed FossaMail to try it having used Thunderbird for several years. Is there a simple way to ensure that incoming mail has the newest at the top by default in all of my folders? I know that I can set this manually by clicking on the top of the column but this is a pain and I am ...

Re: Crashes in Windows 10

I have had no problems with either insider previews or the full release of windows 10 - until the last few days. When I open a new tab, I get the message "cannot find the server at palemoon.start.me".

Re: The Scotsman website

Solved. It was an extra filter that I had inserted (I had forgotten that I had been experimenting). Filter deleted, all back to normal.

Re: The Scotsman website

I have now established that the problem is caused by Adblock Latitude which was recommended in place of Adblock Plus.
Any suggestions?

The Scotsman website

I have found today that the pages of the Scotsman newspaper (www.scotsman.com) do not appear properly. I updated to v25.1.0 recently and have been using it until today without a problem. The same website appears without problems using all of the other main browsers. This is the only website I visit ...

Re: How my Pale Moon looks like

how do I decrease the size of the icons? I find it too big for my liking... Right click on any location on one of the toolbars, select "Customise..." and select "Use small icons" in the dialog box. In Windows 8.1, you have extensive control over various aspects of sizes. Go to Control Panel/Display...
