Hi all, I have an Apache site on Kubuntu 20.04 with a certificate signed by my private CA. I've added the root CA ceritificate in Firefox and in Chromium.

Firefox throws a SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE error

Chromium accept the certificate as valid

What can I do?

Notes: the site url is "https://hdev.h.net" (with an internal IP address inside my lab)

Attached there are:

- the authority settings page
- the certification authority certificate as seen by Firefox
- the site certificate

Firefox version 82.0 Ubuntu Chromium version 86.0.4240.11

Hello, I have 3 websites:

http://history.typeheritage.com/ http://forums.typeheritage.com/ http://bazaar.typeheritage.com/

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

A thousand thanks for your help, Anna

I have recently changed from using Microsoft Online to GMail service (not by choice). I now have a problem in that I cannot send emails from TB because TB still wants to sign in to the Microsoft SMTP server, not the GMail SMTP server. I have tried various strategies, including delete / recreate account, but TB insists that I need to log in to the MS server. So atm I am receiving / viewing emails in TB (because I prefer TB), but sending / replying via GMail. Please help.

Completely disable Firefox update on Ubuntu

I am using Firefox on an old Ubuntu machine, and found myself unable to disable the auto update feature of Firefox. I understand why Firefox wants to do auto update, but for me personally it's negatively impacting my productivity. Many times I was looking up reference materials only to be told that I need to restart Firefox because it just updated itself. Imagine how frustrating it is, especially when I use the Private Browsing mode a lot to avoid having to clean up browsing history and cached files later. All in all, while the auto update feature might be good for some users, it's just not working for me, so I want it to be disabled.

I tried a couple of things. First, there's nothing in the "Preferences" page related to the auto update. Second, I tried to change the value of "app.update.auto" in the "about:config" page to false, and it still does auto update. Finally, I tried to add a "policies.json" file to "/etc/firefox/", with the following content:

{ "policies":

  {
    "AppAutoUpdate": false,
    "DisableAppUpdate": true,
    "DisableTelemetry": true
   }

}

Yet it still does auto updates. As a matter of fact, it updated itself to version 80 just now. This driving me crazy. Any useful suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

I am a home user with win 7 OS. In the DNS over HTTPS FAQ it says that

In addition, Firefox will check for certain functions that might be affected if DoH is enabled, including:

   Are parental controls enabled?
   Is the default DNS server filtering potentially malicious content?
   Is the device managed by an organization that might have a special DNS configuration? 

If any of these tests determine that DoH might interfere with the function, DoH will not be enabled. These tests will run every time the device connects to a different network.

Is there any way for me to find out if DOH is enabled or disabled by Firefox?

Hi,

My old Gmail account works in Thunderbird 68.12.1 (32-bit) with no problems, that is, it sends and receives mail. Now I decided to add another Gmail account to Thunderbird. It receives mail without problems, but it can't send mail. If that matters, I have total 4 accounts in Thunderbird (the other 2 aren't Gmail accounts and they're working).

Both accounts have identical settings:

1) both are Gmail mails, that is, mail address is like name1.name2@gmail.com and those mails aren't new (I've had them for several years, but in Thunderderbird was using just one of them).

2) the option for "Less secure app access allowed" is turned ON in Gmail account security

3) POP mail server settings: Server Name: pop.gmail.com Port: 995 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: Normal password

4) SMTP server settings in Thunderbird: Server Name: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2

So why my new account can't send mails with Authentication method: OAuth2 (it can only send mails using Authentication method: Normal password).

Isn't that the opposite of what should be happening? I thought that Gmail was supposed require OAuth2 method. Anyway, what I'm missing to make those accounts identical for Gmail?

Hi I use Thunderbird with 3 gmail accounts. I have recently changed my Google Account password on two of the email accounts. Thunderbird recognises one of the changed email accounts but, in respect of the other, I get a message that the login to the imap server failed. When inputting the new password, I keep getting the same error message. I went into Thunderbird passwords. On one occasion the imap server for the failed email account appeared in the list and I changed the password shown there to my new one. No success. When I returned to the passwords screen, that imap login had disappeared.

On my iPad all 3 gmail accounts are recognised without a problem.

Thanks.

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

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.

I have added custom certificate authority to the Android system certificates store. But it seems that Firefox doesn't use native store unlike other browsers do. I have to click to advance and allow every time I visit our "unsafe" university web.

Why there is no option to use native Android certificates store or to install CA into browser? That's quite security issue.

Before dinner Wed nite (EST), I could check my GMAIL emails (imap.gmail.com) just fine. After dinner (must've been something I ate?), TBird now keeps asking me for my password when I try to 'Get Messages' or 'Send Messages'. When I put in the correct password, it doesn't accept it. I have checked the CAPS lock key, too. I even tried an old password.

The 'good' password works to get me into Gmail online, so I can view all of my Gmail Emails, but TBird is so much better or course. I can use the GMAIL app for my IPad and everything is fine, so at least I can see my messages.

I CHANGED NOTHING!!! The Passwords show in my password manager.

As an aside: Before all of this happened, I had been noticing that, since updating to the newest TBird, everything is super super slow. When I would type something it'd take 3-5 seconds to show. Plus, it now takes 'forever' to load up.

Just discovered that my Address Book has been wiped out! Is this some type of virus?

BIG THANKS TO THE PERSON WHO HELPS.

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?

I can't seem to disable the certificate verification on Mozilla Firefox. As you can see on the screenshot, the error code is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I tried multiple solutions, including :

- https://smallbusiness.chron.com/disable-firefox-rejecting-certificates-59249.html - The three solutions from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/20088/is-there-a-way-to-make-firefox-ignore-invalid-ssl-certificates - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234483 - All of the solutions from https://browserhow.com/how-to-fix-mozilla-firefox-ssl-certificate-error/ - https://itectec.com/superuser/how-to-make-firefox-ignore-all-ssl-certification-errors/

and so on.

Is there a way to disable this for only one website, or at least for all website ? I got a web interface which is self signed (if I understand everything correctly) where we can bypass the certificate "error" but it would be great if I just could configure Firefox to skip it entirely for this interface (as I'm certain it's not insecure and even if it was I'd still use it because I can't use anything else for now.

I know Chrome has a command line which do exactly what I want (--ignore-certificate-errors) but Firefox is a must go for me so I'd prefer to find an option on this browser.

Thank you for your time.
