Issue with Blocking Websites in Mozilla Firefox via Group Policy

We followed the links below to block internet access in Firefox browser:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAGYYX5hYb8 https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/releases

We downloaded the ADMX and ADML files. Using these files, we were able to locate Mozilla Firefox in Group Policy Management and successfully block all websites in the Firefox browser using the pattern :///*.

However, we encountered an issue with exceptions. We do not wish to block certain websites, including localhost. We attempted to use the "Exceptions to block websites" option, providing values such as ://msn.com/ to exclude specific sites. Unfortunately, this approach did not work as intended. For instance, msn.com is one of the websites we want to allow, among others and also localhost.

We require assistance with the following issue: "Exceptions to block websites" is not functioning properly within the group policy of Mozilla Firefox.

As a longtime user and a regular subscriber to Mozilla, I can’t get access to Thunderbird. Reason is that I had to repair the hard drive and now I am locked out. I am unable to insert a master password because I never had one. Reason being that I have used Thunderbird for years and years before that was required. To say I am frustrated is an understatement. None of your automated advice has a remedy. Should I install a new version of Thunderbird and begin afresh? John Cotterell ( an Australian supporter of your project)

Windows 10 22H2, Thunderbird 115.5

Thunderbird periodically loses my saved passwords (11 accounts) necessitating the re-entry of said passwords. This has been happening for about six to eight months.

I have searched for solutions and have tried deleting the pkcs11.txt and secmod.db files but the problem reoccurs. There is no rhyme or reason as to how often this happens. If I new where the passwords were stored, I could copy the good password file back into the thunderbird directory.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

April 15, 2024 Thunderbird is Insecure There is missing functionality issues

1. How to Disable the "SHOW PASSWORD" Button in Security Settings 2. Either implement with a Password Password option, only to show the Passwords or 3. Allow the ability to Disable the Button

back in 1916-18 the ability to disable the "SHOW PASSWORD" Button worked with with a variation of the following at that time user_pref("pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords", true); I believe I created and used chrome.css or chrome.js

At some point this functionality ceased to work.

Now, I have scoured the Net to figure out a Solution simply setting the value to True, gets reset by Thunderbird, TB does not save it. it always reverts back to False and the button remains available and does not disable

I have tried everything, adding it in user.js, settings.js, userChrome.js I put it in every directory, nothing seems to work

Do I have to Lock it? - How? confusing and disappointing.

Please provide a simple step by step Solution to the problem

Thank you

I would like to change my password for Mozilla Firefox account. I am doing so because I have been notified of a password security breach. However, upon signing into my account via https://accounts.firefox.com/signin (it doesn't matter which device), I cannot change my password with the new one without the red-colored incorrect password window popping up. I know my signin is correct because I have just signed in using it. Whats the problem guys?

Without notice, Thunderbird today required me to sign-in to my Google account and then produced a window in which it said it wanted to access to my mail, contacts and calendar; in order to compose, send, share, delete permanently, among actions on my personal content. I tried to "Deny" (see below) but the window just returned and returned and could not be deleted. (see "Uploaded images", below for the content of this window).

Is this a scam? Or the result of a hacker?

Hello. In the last few days when I visit my Shopify website, the pricing on my products is not visible. This is only for me, nobody else has this issue. I do not have this issue on Safari, or on Firefox when I open a private browsing window. It is something to do with Firefox, but I don't want to have to open a private window every time I go to my store. Is there a solution? This has only been happening for the last few days. Thanks

Why is it impossible for Thunderbird to have an option to display the real senders email address instead of just the "fake" display and return address?

I use an addon to add the true address column in version 102, but as usual Mozilla upates disable useful security related updates.

When is Thunderbird going to show this essential true address instead of spending so much time changing the look and feel?

I am stuck with version 102 or another email client until this changes.

And why is there no helpful information to explain this confusing UX?
