i have installed Thb for a company with 5 members. I am the one who takes care of thb, updates etc. Now, users can go the settings, and make the email account passwords visible.

How can I change settings that users can NOT make the email passwords visible for them?

If this is not possible, can I make the suggestion here, to make an extra possibilty for this?

Thank you.

I have just upgraded from 68.12 to 78.2.2. I used Enigmail but I have migrated to the built-in openPGP. Everything runs as it should.

But it seems that my passphrase has been saved. In the old Enigmail, it used to ask for the passphrase regularly, which I found safer.

So in Thunderbird 78.2.2, is there a way to avoid the saving of the passphrase, or to define how long the passphrase should be saved (e.g. 15 min, session...)? If not, should I then use a master password to protect it? I cannot find the passphrase under saved passwords, so I am not sure where it is stored and therefore if the master password would protect the passphrase.

Thank you!

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.

I am a manager of a company, and I need to let some of our employees access to our online accounts. However, they can see our username/passwords when they simply look at firefox settings. Master password is obviously not useful. I want to basically disable "show password" tab.

I looked up online all day, including other web browsers, and firefox extensions. I can't seem to find it out.

Can anyone help me with this?

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I use gmail and Thunderbird. Everything has worked for several years. A few days ago I changed my Gmail password.

I am able to access my mail via gmail's web interface using this new password. When I start up Thunderbird, it opens a window asking me to sign into my Google account. The screen has a field for my email address which is pre-populated with my correct email address. It also has a "Next" button. Upon clicking the button, I expected to be taken to a screen which asks for my password. Instead, my email address is deleted from the field and replaced with "Email or phone."

OK, I re-enter my email address and click "Next" again. The same thing happens. I try my phone number and get the message "Couldn't find you Google Account. Try entering your email address instead". Note - the phone number is correct and linked to my Google account. I used it to change my Google password which of course led to this problem.

Also, after experiencing this I tried notifying Thunderbird of my new password via Options > Privacy and Security > Saved Passwords... In this screen I changed both incoming and outgoing passwords to my new Gmail password and retried. Same exact experience. Next I went back to this screen and deleted both passwords and retried. Same exact experience.

Please help.

Thanks.

This error just suddenly appeared preventing me from sending email to anyone including myself: Receiving emails OK.

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.1 <ols1439@ca.inter.net>: Recipient address rejected: Access denied. Please ensure that you are using the correct identity to send and that the used authentication method is correct. Verify that you are allowed to send via this SMTP server with your current credentials from your current network.

My ISP provider sugested this fix which did not work :

1-From the menu at the top right, go to Options. 2-Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on Config Editor. 3-Skip past the warning. 4-Scroll down until you find security.tls.version.min (or paste security.tls.version.min to upper frame) Double click on it, and set the value to 1 (Note Current value is 3) 5-Mozilla disabled TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird. Thunderbird 73b and above. 6-This causes issues with anyone connecting via SSL/TLS/StartTLS to services uses 1.1.

I have no problem sending emails from my Ipad. Would appreciate any help resolving this. Thanks

Thunderbird 68.12 I have repeatedly marked one sender as not-junk and it has moved it successfully to the inbox. But when the next email comes in, it still goes in the junk mail. This is despite writing a message filter to put it back in inbox from the junk filter. I have looked at the instructions on spam filtering works, but it still happens. How can I stop this happening as I am missing meetings from this sender?

Hi,

I'm a bit old and really need someone nearby to come show me how to navigate into your securities and other benefits, someone who really knows all this. Is that possible? I get confused by the complexities of everything you offer.

For example, I read something about Ad blocker which said it wants access to all my inforamation- does that mean they want all my bank numbers for trading stocks? That would seem ridiculous, no?

It would also be time to make a small donation to assist your existence. How?

Just curious as to why you have Google as your default search engine. Google, from my understanding, is not the most friendly entity for users because they are just like many social media sites that invade users privacy for nefarious purposes. I have refrained from using Google and have went with Bing. Don't particularly care for any of the main stream search engines. Is there any specific reason why Google is used and not some other search engine that isn't interested in violating your privacy?

I have been using Thunderbird successfully for many years and use the latest version on my desktop pc (Win 10, 64 bit) for various gmail en other email accounts. However, when I changed my password in Gmail, I couldn't implement this in Thunderbird and I sadly decided to delete this account, including smtp and passwords for this account and tried to set it up again. This fails I get a message that username, password or settings are wrong. Tried several times, without success. However I decided to try it out on my laptop after downloading Thunderbird and I was able to set the accounts up without any problem, went very easy, so there seems not to be an issue on the data I tried to use. So I am stuck, could it be that somewhere old imaps are blocking it, if so what could I do, if not what else is the solution? If possible like to avoid deleting Thunderbird, since I have made a lot of local files which I do not want to loose or have to recover apart from the other working email accounts. The problem solving page shows different account numbers: 2, 8, 10 and 14

account2 (none) Local Folders Geen Normaal wachtwoord account8 (pop3) pop3.telfort.nl:995 SSL/TLS Normaal wachtwoord smtp.telfort.nl:25 Geen Normaal wachtwoord true account10 (imap) imap.googlemail.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.gmail.com:465 SSL/TLS OAuth2 true account14 (imap) imap.gmail.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.gmail.com:465 SSL/TLS OAuth2 true
