I am trying to disable Firefox notifications whenever I take screenshots, and googling for solutions, I found the commonly suggested solution is to uncheck the "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" box in Permissions:

[to turn off forever the "screenshot" splash notification]

[Copied" window]

This option is not available in my browser version; thus, I'm hoping there's a newer workaround for this.

When selecting "Get Messages" a warning notice appears ie; Add Security Exception. This Exception notice shows Location and my pop3 provider and port 110, then in a box opposite you can select Get Certificate. Also the last box below the message you can select "Confirm Security Exception" or select "Cancel". I have phoned my Internet Service Provider and also my security software provider, neither are able to help me.

Can you please assist?

As of this morning, I can't "get mail"... I get the "security exception" dialog stating the certificate belongs to a different site (which, it ALWAYS has) and giving me the option to permanently store the exception. Problem is, the exception IS already stored... it's just not WORKING any more. Certificate has NOT changed or expired, as near as I can tell... and this configuration was working for YEARS before this morning.

Using OS authentication (e.g., TouchID) for Credit Cards and Logins

Apologies for re-posting, I asked about this issue before https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323826, but it was archived without any response :(

In an answer to this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1318109#answer-1376159 cor-el warned that using OS authentication (for example, TouchID on a Mac) for passwords instead of a Primary Password is actually not really safe because it doesn't encrypt logins in logins.json and it would be possible to extract them by running: prompt("Logins",JSON.stringify(Services.logins.getAllLogins())); Now I am a bit confused because for storing Credit Cards the default is, of course, using OS authentication (I don't think there's an option to set a password instead). So I am wondering, is that safe, i.e., is the credit card information encrypted that I can retrieve with my TouchID (even without a Primary Password)?

And if so, would anybody be able to explain the differences between these two approaches and why the Firefox developers chose one for Logins/Passwords but the other for Credit Cards.

version: 78.11.0 (32 bits) importance: low

While the OpenGPG icon does show a green check mark on valid PGP signature, the S/MIME icon does not have such a mark and remains grey. The S/MIME icon would be more consistent with a green check mark like the OpenPGP one.

IMHO these icons should be enhanced a little with color (surrounded green when ok for example) so that the user eye can catch more easily whether the email is valid or not.

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10.

In about:preferences#privacy I have "Block pop-up windows" ticked and 16 websites set as exceptions.

This exception list works in non-private windows, but not in private ones - popups are blocked and I have to explicitly click "options" and then "show".

This bug was introduced a few releases ago - it used to work OK.

Hi,

I am facing issue with importing public keys (.asc) file to Thunderbird. This happen since Enigmail is integrated to Thunderbird.

I am a Mailvelope user (a gmail add ons). I am exporting all the public keys I am having and try to import it to Thunderbird. The file I am having has more than 50 keys. However, when I import on Thunderbird, it only read it as one key address - so only one public key is successfully imported.

This issue never occur when Enigmail was still a separate add on on Thunderbird. Can anyone suggest me what to do? so that I don't need to export each individual key and then import it one by one to Thunderbird. Thank you in advance!

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

Yesterday morning, I started receiving a "secure connection failed" message when trying to retrieve email from imap.gmail.com. I searched Mozilla Support and tried the following, which apparently worked for others:

"First, delete all entries in Tools/Options/Security/Passwords/Saved Passwords. Press Alt if the Menu Bar with Tools is hidden, or click the 3-bar icon, Options/Options/Security/Passwords/Saved Passwords.

Next, use these settings for IMAP accounts: imap.gmail.com on port 993, SSL/TLS, OAuth2 authentication, User Name = email address. For POP accounts: pop.gmail.com on port 995, SSL/TLS, OAuth2 authentication, User Name = email address. For SMTP: smtp.gmail.com on port 465, SSL/TLS, OAuth2 authentication, User Name = email address.

After you've deleted the passwords, restart TB and enter the regular account password, not an app password, in the OAuth browser window when prompted."

It doesn't work for me...I keep getting error messages. Suggestions? Thanks!!

Keep my FF and TB installs as separate as possible from my OS installs. Have profiles in their respective app folders on a separate partition. I boot to different VHDs or partitions for choice of OS. Using batch file to delete FF and TB parent.lock files, but still having issues. Like FF bookmarks and history being used by another another app and TB not opening at all while maxing out CPU. Surely a better way to do this without repeatedly deleting FF's security files? Like a configuration settings for multi-boot systems? Thanks

"The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."
