Will Thunderbird work with Gmail after 30th May 2022

I have just received this message from Google / Gmail:

"Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0"

I currently use an older version of MS Outlook that apparently won't work after these changes are introduced.

My question is - will Thunderbird work with Gmail after the 30th May deadline? Is it compatible with 'Sign in with Google'?

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Hi, TBird stores my email addresses and passwords - So why should Google get involved? Today I can't get to my Gmail accounts because a window pops up - << One account. All of Google.

Sign in with your Google Account...  >>

Why should I trust Google with all my eggs? The way they ask is aggressive even - a big white window, not a lot of text, no Help, no explanation; with no Hide/maximise/close window controls.

A website MultiSafepay.com has saved my CVV number in Firefox.

How do I edit the autofill data?

I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.

Most links on this matter refer to:

 Options => Privacy & Security => Forms and Autofill

However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.

Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?

In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.

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?

Hi, My institution has stopped allowing mail to be sent via Thunderbird using OAuth2 because of security concerns. They write:

"While Thunderbird uses Oauth2, it doesn't use/support it fully for sending mail. As such you can authenticate with oauth2 and download/receive mail on Thunderbird, but you can't send mail. Despite saying Outgoing mail uses oAuth2, Thunderbird still requires SMTP to be turned on to use it. This negates the security benefit from the decision to end legacy authentication, and is the change we are not able to do from the new policy. If Thunderbird were to fully support/use oauth2 for sending and receiving it should work. However, while thunderbird - or other mail clients - require SMTP in order to send mail, they will not be able to properly send mail."

Does / will Thunderbird address this and update? Is there an existing solution or explanation?

Hi Everyone,

I run Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 and Firefox version 72.0.2, with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and search engine, and New Tab version 1 by Leigh Brenecki.

All works well, other than, having opened Firefox with the first "Tab" available, when I click the "+" sign for a New Tab, the error message "Blocked by Content Security Policy" and "An error occurred during a connection to duckduckgo.com" is displayed.

However, if I click on the Firefox Home Page "House" icon, or select any of my Bookmarks Toolbar icons, the message goes away and all works well again -- at least until I try opening another New Tab when the cycle starts again.

I realise this might be a "New Tab" or "DuckDuckGo" problem, and will seek their support accordingly - I just wondered if anyone on here had experienced the same?

Thank you,

Ian

hey all,

I get the following error ONLY for internal websites (we have our own Windows CA): SEC_ERROR_CERT_SIGNATURE_ALGORITHM_DISABLED Yes, I could "ignore" the error, however this is not desired. I compared already the algorithm with some external certs (like Let's Encrypt). Same algorithm, no error....

Have already tried with several internal websites, but without success. Some information about the certificate: Algorithm: RSA 2048 key length Sign. Algorithm: SHA-256 with RSA Encryption V3

What is wrong? I have already tried a lot of things without success. Unfortunately, I no longer know what to do.We deploy the certificates (root+intermediate) via GPO (this works so far). We have the above mentioned problems only after switching from 68ESR to 78ESR.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I've noticed recently that on login to some website that because my account profile uses a gmail account the website is automatically logging me in.

I'm assuming the following is what is happening, I'd like to stop it and use my password manager to login, but this process the website is using is completely bypassing my configuration choices.

Should I assume this data is shared with Google? It must be right, they have sent an authentication request to google that my email on profile is valid and google knows the domain that made the request and the timestamp. Worse, this blocks me from using my own password manager or browser password manager and gives me no control over what is shared with google a 3rd party to website i have subscribed, are they not violating privacy terms by doing this? Is there a class action in progress somewhere?

I used to be able to send emails using Thunderbird to Office365 using SMTP, but it is no longer working, although I'm still receiving emails.

Getting the following error: Login to server smtp.office365.com with username ***@*** failed

Settings Server: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 Encryption: STARTTLS

The problem occurs with Windows and also Mac OS (I installed Thunderbird to help troubleshoot).

I'm using Office 365 Family, so there is no option to manage the users, as there is in the business version, and which has been suggested by others with the same problem.

It's unclear to me if the problem lies with Thunderbird or Microsoft (I suspect the latter). Any advice would be very welcome.

I posted a question and got one answer that does not help.

Verizon.net is now handled by AOL. In 4 days Thunderbird will not support it unless I comply with the new AOL security settings. I am having trouble doing that unless I delete the Verizon.net account and re-install it thereby losing all my Sent messages. That will be painful. AOL did give me an App Generated Password to use but I cannot find the place in Thunderbird to add it.

The one answer* said if my incoming and outgoing servers are imap.aol.com and smtp.aol.com it would be easy. The server settings are: pop.verizon.net and smtp.verizon.net

Any other suggestions?????
