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

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 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.

I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

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

I was using an unprotected wifi for about 3 days and now I have unknown programs running and sometimes commond prompt boxes suddenly poping up and dissapearing. I'm nolonger using the computer and I'm changing all my passwords just in case. (not getting FF to remember them)

But there are unknown usernames and passwords in my synced passwords. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/930340 Does this mean the hacker has all my FF passwords and can access it anywhere and anytime if I change them is sync? Should I make a new Sync account?

I'm looking for non-social Firefox edition or version. I want to follow the latest FF updates, but without any integrated services like social spyware and any other kind of malware. Options disable / enable are not sufficient to be safe and security in Firefox is corrupted by social API.

Social services and features must be implemented only as a simple optional extensions and nothing more.

When I try to access this US military site, https://www.tricareonline.com/portal/page/portal/TricareOnline/Portal I get a warning that this site can't be trusted. I then get a notice to override Firefox if I trust the site. I get a certificate, override, and finally get the site. But this has happened a half dozen or so times, every time I try to log in to the military site. How can I log into this site without the annoying warnings?

A newspaper website asked if I wanted to tell them my location. Firfox popped up and asked if I wanted to automatically tell sites that ask my geographic location. I clicked and got more information. There was a section that gave instructions to permanently disable geographic location tracking. I followed the directions to disable, even though the default is no tracking. I had to type an two words with a : separating them into the address bar. This brought me to a long list of settings. I followed the directions but now it seems my location is being tracked by everyone.

How do I get back to this list of settings (which was not accessed through Options) to go back to the default?

Hi,

I'm using firefox for several years, but recently i discovered a weird effect on one of my computers, which was consistent across many FF versions (up to the recent version 17 now). All drop down menus on facebook were not working for me. On one pc I can click on the red globe, and a menu opens - while on the other pc nothing happened. Now I was able to reproduce it.

As soon as I activate the "ask how long cookies are stored" option in the privacy settings, the drop down menus wont work/show. Choosing the default "Keep them as long as they are valid" reenables the drop down menus.

I really like the cookie storage time option so i can decide which website will remember me.

I am no doubt asking in the wrong place, but...I have Apache2 running on a linux locally. I believe I have set it up to support server-side includes. I have a cgi-bin perl script, hell.pl:

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, world\n";
exit;

Under Firefox, I can generate the Hello World page through the url

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/cgi-bin/hell.pl

where xxx.xxx... is the apache2 server address.

But if I try to do that via the html file:

<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
Test:<BR>
<BODY>
<!--#include virtual=/cgi-bin/hell.pl" -->
</BODY></HTML> 

All I get is page which is blank except for the "Test:" on line 1. The apache error and access logs show no relevant problems, as if the browser treats the serverside include as a comment.

I realize that the fault no doubt lies with the apache2 configuration, but I have studied and studied... and am now clutching at straws.
