I have been away from PC use and internet privacy for a while and was even considering ditching my phone due to everything being about data on everything from me to what we eat and drink. I only have a cheap phone Android Nokia 2.2. Whch I am in two minds of ditching due to everything being about buying and selling, social media gossip I'm trying to find a happy medium whare I can buy things I need and also learn more about privacy of all technology devices. To use for navigating this world and trying to do some good with the tools we have. Ideally I would like to be off grid and self sufficient but people will be needing help and as aproffesing Christian I don't even trust them or myself as what I read is we have not to call anyone on earth my father rabbi or teacher as we all have one teacher the holy spirit and stronger is he that is in you than him that is in the world. And beware of them who require the front seats in the synygoges and temples and add frills to their garments seeking the praise of men in market places . Also trust no man as all men are liars including myself. Trying to change and become like a little child again and get my imagination back.

Claification on Private Keys Storage

I read the following text from the FAQ but still have some questions about how it works. Assuming you don't have a Master Password, are those Private (Secret) keys are stored not encrypted? In one sentence it says they are protected with a random password when imported and in another it says they are unprotected if there is no master password. If they are not protected (encrypted) without a master password being present, what happens when you add one? Do they then get encrypted with that random password? Also what happens to versions that were stored in plaintext?

How is my personal key protected?

At the time you import your personal key into Thunderbird, we unlock it, and protect it with a different password, that is automatically (randomly) created. The same automatic password will be used for all OpenPGP secret keys managed by Thunderbird. You should use the Thunderbird feature to set a Master Password. Without a master password, your OpenPGP keys in your profile directory are unprotected.

Thanks

Despite clearing all data, firefox still autofills searches and unfortunately it always autocompletes to a fraudulent/bad site that I went to. I'd like to remove that search and to also disable autocomplete suggestions. The specific issue is that I'm trying to go to nfl but it completes it to nflliveio or something and i hate having to press delete to remove that text address nfl. I am using Google search.

Hello, Please forgive me if I haven't found the thread that already relates to this. But I would like to be able to have messages I send expire after some time period. It looks like there was an add on "Expiry" that is no longer supported that did this to some extent. The functionality is available in Outlook and Gmail, which leads me to believe it is probably available in Thunderbird, but I am just not looking in the right place. I know that subscription services also provide this option but I would like it to be native to Thunderbird.

Thanks, Kurtis M
