When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

This seems to be a new "feature" in a recent upgrade (90+?). It is a pain, particularly on a media PC as it requires using a keyboard.

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 am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

Firefox 90.0.2 on Windows 10 was installed on 7/27/2021 which is about when this started.

Firefox is suddenly asking for master password twice, while running, not at startup. I leave Firefox running at night. I find two password dialogs when I log in in the morning. I'm not sure if they display at a certain time (e.g. midnight), or if it is a result of the system going into sleep and waking.

When Firefox starts or restarts, it displays one master password as expected.

I found this article from two years ago , but the "hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug" is not found in about:debug or in profiles.

I have not installed any add-ons recently. Last Windows update was KB5004237 installed on 7/18.

Is it Firefox? What else could be causing this problem?

Hello mozilla support. Firstly I apologize for my english. I love Firefox and using him for many years this time i run on 64bit version number 88.0. I recently discover problem with my saved passwords in Firefox and i mean this broke my or everyone privacy using feature of saving passwords by Firefox. After some time past installation of antivirus program Avast on my desktop PC i was surprised with new installed program on my desktop named Avast Secure Browser. I ran this program first time and without any his any question he show up in front of meon desktop. I discover in his settings that all my passwords saved in Firefox was succesfully decrypted because when i click on the eye icon my password was showed up as he is in firefox. Then i search for a file in my user profile where the Avast Secure Browser has my passwords stored and then check this file on all other user profiles on my PC where nobody not even once run this Avast Secure Browser but all passwords was already prepared for them in that file on all user accounts without any grant or approval by other users during their work on PC. I am only man which administrate this PC and I dont allow Avast Secure Browser stole my passwords from Firefox. My questions is obvious. How secure is for any user which stored their passwords in Firefox before any other system application like antivirus installed on PC with platform windows? How is possible for any app simply decrypt my passwords from logins.json file? For me it is a very bad if this was allowed through maybe some function in Firefox API that can some program use, but i am not an expert on Firefox a that is why i wrote this. If a problem is Avast which use some not good practise in this app, then i immediately send him feedback. But firstly i want answer from your team.

Sometime since upgrading to Release 90 (now have 90.0.2) Firefox Browser has started asking that I enter my Primary Password several times each hour. I do not see a relationship with how the Browser is being used at the time.

Anyone know why this is happening?

I do not like the situation.

A cert on an application we mange expired. OK. So I went to that site knowing I would have to tell FF to accept the cert even though it expired. However, I couldn't find anything under 'advanced' to accept the cert. This is with 90.0.2. Did something recently change where that's no longer allowed?

I had to resort to using a different browser so I can access the app to install a new cert.

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!

Hi I currently am unable to mail myself within Thunderbird using outlook.com Problem only started a few days ago. I receive the following message

Your message wasn't delivered because the recipient's email provider rejected it. Remote Server returned '550 5.7.520 Message blocked because it contains content identified as spam. AS(4810)'

I also use a gmail account within Thunderbird & this presents no problem, allowing me to send gmail to gmail & also gmail to outlook & outlook to gmail. I have also noted that if I log in to outlook via a browser I can send outlook to outlook with no issues but not from within Thunderbird. Not a huge problem in the great scheme of things, but I do mail myself quite often with links & reminders etc so would be good to get it sorted. Any help much appreciated Thanks Neil
