Get Mail requires pull-down

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Dick Chimenti, Jul 12, 2005.

  1. At some point along the way, I was forced to start using the pull-down
    alongside the "Get Mail" button. It's only needed for retrieving e-mail
    and not news. Anyone know how to fix this?

  3. I apparently didn't make it clear that I want to simply be able to press
    the Get Mail button to have it retrieve my e-mail without having to use
    the pull-down. I already have the two boxes checked that you suggested.

    AFAIK, the Get Mail button gets messages for the active account. So if
    you happen to be reading newsgroups when you click the button, it gets
    new messages for the news server account.

  5. There is at least one extension out there that either provides an extra
    button "get all mail", or changes the functioning of the normal button
    to the same purpose.
