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?

Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

I have just upgraded from 68.12 to 78.2.2. I used Enigmail but I have migrated to the built-in openPGP. Everything runs as it should.

But it seems that my passphrase has been saved. In the old Enigmail, it used to ask for the passphrase regularly, which I found safer.

So in Thunderbird 78.2.2, is there a way to avoid the saving of the passphrase, or to define how long the passphrase should be saved (e.g. 15 min, session...)? If not, should I then use a master password to protect it? I cannot find the passphrase under saved passwords, so I am not sure where it is stored and therefore if the master password would protect the passphrase.

Thank you!

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.

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 only have "logins and passwords" there, not "forms and auto-fill".

Am I missing something? Does Firefox even save credit cards for international users or not?

I have Firefox 84.0.1 on Linux Mint, and I have filled in the information for one credit card. When I hover over credit card fields on retail site forms, I usually (but not always) get a pop-up "hint" showing the card number and/or expiration date ... but I cannot get the browser to actually fill in the form field. I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.

I am using Developer Edition, 85.0b3 (64-bit) Windows (en-US). Up and until last version, 84.0x, I was able to access the network.security.esni.enabled setting, but now it's missing from about:config I have tried all three versions of 85.0 ( b1 b2 b3 ... so far ), and none of them have this setting. Manually adding the key has no effect.

I have also checked the [notes for 85.0beta] ,but couldn't find any note with regards to this change.

Is this a bug, or has this feature been removed, or moved to a different config page?

Thunderbird 78 on macOS OpenPGP Key Management. How? Where?

Since the Migration away from Enigmail to Thunderbird 78 (some Migration-Assistant did automatically start and failed after I did not remember one of my passwords for a gpg key)... I have no idea where to correct the issue.

I can nowhere see the available/imported keys also the public keys from friends seem to be missing and i cannot send them encrypted mails anymore.

The thing that drives me nearly insane is that I can not find ANY menu or menuentry that provides any access to the OpenPGP information Thunderbird 78 is expected to handle now.

What is going on here? Am I an idiot suddenly in operating my mailclient or is this menu or menuentry simply not existing? How can it be that such an essential thing is not easily accessible to me?

I am puzzled, angry and deeply disappointed, because I like my software to be open source, but this experience drives me away. And I even needed to create a new firefox account to even give feedback an ask this question.

Nevertheless I hope someone can help me with this. Right. now my mailclient is useless to me. And I am not the one who is responsible for this mess.

If I want to use NoScript (for example) in a Private Browsing window, how do I set Firefox up to do that? -- jclarkw

Recently I was required to change my password for my att.net account (sbcglobal.net email). After that I cannot receive emails from that account. Thunderbird is able to retrieve emails from my google email, but not the att.net account. I keep receiving the attached message.

I have tried resetting the password under "Saved Passwords" without success. I have verified using the same incoming and outgoing server as before. Also tried going back to att.net and changing the password back to the original without success. When I contacted ATT they seemed to indicate that the server settings were correct. I even tried to remove the account and entering it again in Thunderbird.

There is a lot of useful information available that users have submitted, however with my limited understanding the suggestions haven't solved the problem. It seems that the problem is with the account settings within Thunderbird, but can't seem to find it. Any help would be appreciated.

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

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.
