Hello everybody, Since the last major update (the address bar can be seen at the bottom of the display since the update), the login to a website via Basic Authentication no longer works if I use the Keepass2Android password manager to enter the password. If I want to log into a website using Basic Authentication with Firefox, the dialog box for entering a username and password appears first. In the Username field, instead of entering the name, I choose the function "Fill in with Keepass2Android". It then switches to the Keepass2Android app and I select an entry there. After the selection, it will switch back to Firefox for Android. The input field for username and password is filled and can only be seen for a fraction of a second before it disappears. However, it is not possible to register without pressing the "OK" button and I cannot access the website. I've already tried every possible setting in both Firefox and Keepass2Android. Unfortunately without success. A new version of Keepass2Android has not been released in the meantime, so that the cause is very likely to be due to the new Firefox version. I'm using a Samsung A50 with Android 10. Thank you in advance for your support. I am at your disposal for questions. regards Michael

Some time a go I've configured access to the smart card in the Spanish id card in Firefox, and it work. But I'm recently trying to use again and it doesn't.

I'm in a Debian 10 with the libpkcs11-dnie installed (with its dependencies) and I've set it up in a firefox-beta. Is where I've added months a go the module (/usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so), then I had logged in and saw the certificate in "Your Certificates".

Since then many updates came but I didn't need again to use this card. I'm trying it now that firefox-beta is 82.0 and the "log in" button is never enabled.

When I've tried with another firefox, for example the esr (78.3.0esr) coming with debian, I have to add this module as it wasn't there. I've clicked "Load" and fill the form with "module name" and "module filename" (the same file that I've mention before) and when I click 'ok', I receive an alert "Unable to add module". Same experience with firefox-stable (81.0.2) and with firefox-devel (82.0b9).

I don't even know if the issue comes from firefox. Is there a way to debug further the origin of this alert message or why this is not being recognized by the application?

Thanks

I like to delete all cookies when I close Firefox and have it set accordingly under Cookies and Site Data to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". Under Manage Exceptions, I have added the half a dozen websites that I am happy to Allow cookies. However, when I re-open Firefox, not only does it require me to go through the "accept cookies" process (ie it has deleted all the cookies including my exceptions), but the exceptions that I'd listed have all disappeared. So why isn't the Manage Exceptions not working correctly, please? Any solutions much appreciated. Thanks

Hello

I have installed the latest firefox update on my Samsung mobile phone (in french) 81.1.4, however I cannot find any menu setting to activate a primary password like on all the other firefox apps I'm using on my laptop and home PC.

How can this be controlled as I find it very dangerous having anyone access my phone and able to check the password mananger and view all passwords without entering a primary password. Thank you for your help.

I'm having an issue with Firefox because I want to keep the containers opening on the same website after I click it from a different website but for whatever reason Firefox seems to keep forgetting and asking me again despite the fact that I click the button that says remember my choice.

I wonder if this has something to do with my cookie settings but I'm not sure I'm currently confused how to manage those like if I should just allow cookies per session in Firefox or allow them entirely I mean I'm thinking that with the containers since I have everything isolated individually (That took forever really need an option for that Mozilla) I don't need to worry about the effects of cookies anymore is this correct?

Also would there be a way to even keep cookies but just stop the login information from being saved on the site? Because with me using containers now I think that's my biggest issue from what I think I understand at least.

1) I just did a security firefox security scan an was informed that in 2017 there was a breach of my "My Heritage Account" and that passwords and Email addresses were compromised. I would like more info on this report : just what passwords and Email addresses were compromised? Was it just My Heritage data or would it be everything on my computer.


2) My Firefox software won't open my Outlook emails: Edge and Google Chrome work fine. What is the fix for this problem?

Afternoon, Firefox upgraded without my permission to there new system on my pixel 2. All my passwords which were contained in a master passwords have disappeared. There was a purple box I found that said enter old password and you can restore ( not sync) old passwords from before upgrade. It would not accept my password which I know was correct especially as was using it the new ght before. That box had now disappeared. Does anybody know how to restore my old passwords on my phone. Or to retrieve that box so I can try again. They are not sync and don't have FF account. I have looked nany times in passwords and privacy but it only had three new passwords saved. Thank you

Running: WIN 10 PRO FIREFOX 81.0.2 (64-BIT) THUNDERBIRD 68.121 (32-BIT) NORTON SECURITY 22.20.5.39 Xfinity ISP

Ran Thunderbird for years without a problem until 2 days ago, I cannot send or receive email using Thunderbird from my pc or other devices. When attempting to get new mail, receive following: “Alert from account [email@comcast.net temporarily blacklisted IP Address”. Also receive following error message “Login to server imap.comcast.net with username [email]@comcast.net failed” Attached is screenshot showing both alert and error messages. I attempted several times “Retry” and re-entering password. All attempts failed! I can log on to Xfinity.NET on the internet via Firefox, retrieve, read and send mail from Xfinity.net website. I cannot do the same using Thunderbird. Attempted fixes to include: disconnect of Norton anti-virus/firewall, reset password on Xfinity, reset WINS to an earlier date, use a different modem, changed passwords, all failed to fix problem. I am not a technical savvy individual and really need help in solving this problem, can someone help me: • Who has “blacklisted” my email? Comcast, Firefox, Thunderbird, Norton, WIN 10? • What has caused this to happen? • What do I need to do rectify the problem and get Thunderbird working again? Greatly appreciate any assistance you can give me.

Regards, Ed [email]@comcast.net

Hi everyone,

I want to use the website Roll20 for online role playing with people far away (and even complete strangers). On my former computer, I switched from Opera to Firefox to be able to use it with camera and microphone, and it worked well (Win8.1). On my new computer (Win10), it doesn't work any more. I don't get the prompt to allow the use of these devices. I don't even have any source to select for the microphone nor for the camera. I tried updating the drivers, updating Windows, but nothing changed. The camera works well with Windows's Camera app, and it seems to work fine on Roll20 with Google Chrome, so I still have this solution for next Sunday's game, but I would prefer to use Firefox if possible.

I keep getting a message to update Mozilla Thunderbird; and yet if I do, Thunderbird totally breaks. I don't dare update it and would like it to stop popping up the message. Can I do that?

How does it break?

When I update, it no longer allows me to use the "self-signed certificate" for MY OWN SERVER! I have tried every single possible way of manually installing the certificate; but it will not allow it. 68.8 allows it just fine with a message that pops up basically saying "do you really trust so and so is so and so" [with because it is my own server, that is asking, "do you trust that you are yourself?" And, yes, I do trust that I am myself, so I click permanently accept the certificate; and it just works. Newer versions stopped working that way; at one point (I believe it was 68.10 or 68.11) I was still able to manually install the certificate; but even that stopped working.

To put for a very apt analogy. Let us say that Thunderbird is a bank for e-mail; it stores e-mail messages; and conducts transactions (deposits/downloads, withdrawals/server deletions, and check processing/connections to servers) with the account owner and those the account owner works with.

A self-signed certificate is literally the same as a person signing their own check and giving it to someone else. The bank is SUPPOSED to process that check; the drawing bank should validate the signature for sure, but the bank that the check is depositing in should have no say. [Thus I have no problem with a warning popping up saying -- do you validate this signature.]

But, can you imagine one day taking your paycheck to the bank and the bank saying "no we will not accept paychecks that aren't notarized." What is the process of notarizing a signature? It is having a third party (a trusted licensed notary public) verify that the person signing (whatever--in this case a bank check) is actually the person they say they are. That is literally what having a third party trusted root certificate signature and chain is doing; it is notarizing the signature on the security certificate.

While that may make sense for someone conducing business with someone that they do not know. It makes no sense for an employer to have to notarize the paychecks for his employees; especially when that is to the tune of several hundred dollars per year. Employees already know who their employer is; and already have established that trust.

Again, when I am providing e-mail only to employees on my company server; there is no reason at all that Thunderbird (which has nothing to do with my business; is simply only the bank account for e-mail transactions) should require me to pay extra money to establish trust that their employer is really their employer.

I am a DirecTV customer and should be able to watch programs on my Win10 device, but Firefox disagrees. On the DirecTV site, when I click Watch Now, it wants to install the DTV player. When Firefox is redirected to the download page, it throws a certificate error and screeches to a halt. I would expect an opportunity to assume the risk and continue, but none is offered. I opened MS Edge, which I don't want to use, and it installed the viewer, no problem. This is the URL from which FF is redirected : https://www.directv.com/Channels/Fox-Business-Network-HD-359?modal=/modal/install/359/channe.
