I cannot use OpenPGP encryption on one of my email addresses, because its private key does not appear in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting. Exactly, I can have added the private key through the wizard of the account setting, but there is no private key in the End-to-End encryption of the account setting instead of the private key appearing in the OpenPGP key manager.

The other email accounts are OK, i.e. I can use OpenPGP encryption on the accounts. The differences from the troubled email account are followings: - The troubled email account uses Ed255 not ECDSA algorithm. - Name of the troubled email account includes UTF-8 Japanese characters. - The troubled email account also registers S/MIME private.

Please give me advice on this problem. Thanks.

Hi all, I have been using Thunderbird on Windoze for decades, but am a Linux noob, so please be gentle!  :-)

The setup is Thunderbird v68.10.0 on Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, only switched from Windoze10 to Linux this week so I am still learning.

Gmail account was set up and working fine on Tbird on both Linux and Win10 until a couple of days ago, when Google "detected suspicious activity on my account" and demanded I change the password, which I did. Now when I try to access the Gmail account on Tbird Linux, I get the prompt screen to enter my email details, but when I add my email address it just refreshes the screen and asks for the email address again. I have tried entering my mobile phone number instead of the email address but same result, it just reloads the page.

I tried deleting the account (but not the data) from Tbird and reinstalling the account but same result. New password in Tbird are both working fine on Win10 so it is a Linux/Tbird issue -- or user error?

I saw other threads about manually changing the password in Options, but can't find the equivalent options in Linux, and don't think that would be the problem anyway because I am not getting to the 'enter password' stage. Any thoughts?

Cheers, Terry (Confused) Chadban

Just a general question : firefox on windows I used to have lastpass as password manager. as they are moving out nice features from the free version to the payed version I switched to lockwise. But it does not maintain automatically your password. What password manager are you using ? does it have the maintain feature of updated password ? Thanks for all recommendations Best regards, Guy

I see that Thunderbird is not deleting the cache on exit/shutdown. I wanted to see if this is a bug, if I have misconfigured, or if it is not supported. I thought this was functioning properly in older versions but I can't cite specifics to backup that claim.

I have set privacy.clearOnShutdown.cache to true. When I shutdown, the files still remain in the cache2/entries subdirectory inside of the profile dir.

To confirm it wasn't a corrupt index file, I closed Thunderbird, deleted the entire cache2 subdir, and restarted Thunderbird. The cache2 directory architecture is rebuilt on startup but when I close Thunderbird again, the cache entries still remain.

Should this work (delete cache on exit)? Did I configure it correctly?

I am running Thunderbird v78.9.1 on Win10, both 64 bit.

The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.

I have been using Firefox for years. I recently decided to tinker around a little with private browsing. I had my laptop and phone sync'd. Within the last 10 days or so I have been restricted to only accessing my bank using private browsing. I have been online with my bank to try and resolve, to no avail. I have added exceptions for all the cookies, pop up windows etc for my bank and still nothing. I have disabled the syncing and still nothing. My bank said they have had some communications issues with Firefox...I tried to login with Chrome and sailed right into my bank account. I really don't want to have to use another browser to access my bank.

Below is the error I get. Please help!! its truly a hassle to HAVE to use private browsing for 1 item.

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server.

Good morning, please help & advise. I am obviously doing something wrong or missing something but I cannot find out how to disconnect my Primary Password which Firefox asked for everytime I click on Firefox. I only want to use the Primary Password when I want to open an excisting connection to a saved folder or site.

I hope I'm making sense.

I really like firefox but have to shut it down to add a new password if I don't use one of yours which are too long and complicated. And I don't think you need to have my passwords. Typical firefox password:

I am researching various ways of improving the security of my email. And I really like the ideas of pep:

https://pep.software/thunderbird/

What is the official word from Thunderbird on this? It seems to me that pep is able to remove some of the complexities of encryption much in the same way as Signal Messenger.

I can not find any information here when I search for it, so I got a bit curious.

Also, pep is available for almost any platform.

Please can someone tell me why is there such a long delay between opening firefox and the master password prompt?

Also if anyone knows if there is some way to either speed up the master password prompt so that it opens instantly on opening firefox or prevent it from opening until a password box is present on the webpage.

The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Hi, I installed Thunderbird onto new laptop last week. All working AOK until I added on a dictionary, so that spell check would work. After that, I can receive, but not send emails. I get this message;

  Sending of the message failed.
  Peer's Certificate issuer is not recognised.
  The configuration related to smtp.gmail.com must be corrected.

I checked my account server settings - same as former laptop. Ports etc the same. Question 1 - is installing the dictionary the cause of not being able to send? Question 2 - whatever the cause, what can I do to remedy this?

Please answer simply as I am not a super tech. My understanding of the certificate is its like a handshake between my laptop and other entities. Many thanks, Julie Grace

Is the version of Firefox in the Linux repositories the China version with an American facelift?

I know you all do not have command and control of this, but I thought someone should be aware that the default Firefox browser for Linux installs seems to be the CCP Firefox and not American version. With all the CISA activity, it might be something to look into.
