It appears that google gmail does not allow thunderbird anymore. I could choose the "less secure apps" option but I do not want other apps that might want to join the party. I saw no option on google to allow just TB and disallow other "less secure apps" . It started when Google alerted me that one of my passwords was compromised. I don't know and probably won't ever know if it was Thunderbird that was compromised, or if something else. I had to delete all the passwords on google and start from scratch. When I deleted my google application passwords, and changed my google password. When I tried to log back in with thunderbird, google would not accept the request from Thunderbird. All thunderbird did was show me a log in page where I could enter my password (which i did correctly thank you very much) but it did not say "rejected by google" or that it was incorrect. It just cleared the entry line and asked again. It took me a lot of time to figure out that google was the problem and not thunderbird. But now I see it is a failing of thunderbird not keeping up with security measures.

My suggestion is that when this happens, thunderbird should alert the user that the log in is not succeeding because google is rejecting it instead of letting the user think that they did something wrong. I say this because it is just frustrating to try to log in and not know why it isn't working.

email is such an important service that I would rather do without all the nice features of thunderbird than have to go through this security breach issue ever again.

thanks to all the people that work on thunderbird, and I hope you can fix it. If it ever gets fixed, I would like to use it again, but for now, it just doesn't make any sense.

Today at 14:07 I changed my email preferences and unsubscribed from all email types in my Firefox account.

At 5 hours later, at 19:36 I receive an email from Mozilla with the title "Sync your bookmarks, history and logins".

So either the email preferences does not work or the email does not respect the preferences I have set. Either way it's always extremely annoying when this happens and it leaves me wondering if Mozilla takes privacy seriously.

Even worse is, I already have sync set up (which doesn't work anyway as I have written about here).

Pictures attached as "proof" for those who are in doubt.

I have used Firefox and Thunderbird for several years but now I am unable to use Yahoo because of ?Thunderbird being unsecure? So anyway I can't get signed in anymore. I have read everything I can find on the web sites about how to log in but as I read and follow directions I always get to a critical spot where a function/icon/option/ is not available to me. So I'm dead in the water again. I am using Firefox version 83 and Thunderbird version 78, the latest downloads and Windows 10. I guess I'm not very smart on the computer but my question is 'can anybody give me precise instructions how to comply with the Yahoo security snafu? Right now I am using Yahoo until I can find out something about Thunderbird and I hate Yahoo. Secondly is Mozilla fixing the Thunderbird program so it will seamlessly log in?

Any help will be appreciated. My email address is: gaylon.smith@sbcglobal.net

Trying to access https://www.locast.org. but my location is blocked.

I want to add\change\edit a permission for the above website to allow.

I have previously blocked requests for my location in Permissions => Location => Settings. I have now unchecked this. I have deleted the relevant cookies using the sites shield menu. I am unable to get the site to prompt me to allow location nor can I manually add the site to the in Permissions => Location => Settings.

I expect this to be in about:config but no idea where.

How can I correct this?

Hello,

Latest Firefox 83 (tested with 84+ as well) running on Windows 10 1709.

Access to the Internet is allowed through the proxy (Squid) and proxy settings are distributed via pac file. There are no issues accessing the Internet.

We host our local web server which is allowed to be accessed directly without proxying and it's excluded in the pac file -- this works fine too.

The problem is that in one of the pages of our local website, there are several YouTube videos embedded using iframes and they can't be displayed. Instead, we see:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly" (Screen1.png and Screen2.png)

There are no issues displaying videos using Chrome/Chromium, Internet Explorer or Opera.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
