TB 102.5.0 (64-bit) on Win10 I'm getting repeated notices that my e-mail accounts with Network Solutions don't have a proper "certificate" when I try to send an email. I get a popup window stating so, and asking me to "permanently" choose the exception. It doesn't matter how many times I tell the fool thing to accept the exception "permanently". I still keep getting the notice every few times. Since the glitch is not consistent, I don't have an image of one to put here. Not only that, I have to send the email twice after doing so. TB refuses to send the email the first time after choosing the exception, but allows it the second. I don't know anything about "certificates" and am sick of getting popup notices about them. I doubt that the problem is with Network Solutions email accounts. This reminds me of years ago, when I tried to upgrade to WinXP. It kept interrupting my work to give me popup security notices that I didn't understand and couldn't do anything about. If I remember correctly, I took it back to Sam's Club and replaced it with Win2000. Problem solved. Never mind that XP was supposed to be better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Hello, I would like to point out that the window or the password for accessing the mozilla firefox browser can be circumvented simply by selecting the "Cancel" button or by clicking on the red cross.

In other words it is useless, whereas before it worked perfectly.

Hope you fix this problem soon.

How do I add a password to log into mozilla.news.org as a newsgroup in TB 102.5.0

When I started TB 102.5.0 today it prompted me to enter a password for my newsgroup account. I had set up to access mozilla.news.org NNTP items a few years ago and this is the first time I've been prompted to enter a password. I thought they must have made a change requiring us to use the new Firefox account for this but I can't find any way in Account Settings to do this. The option to "Manage Newsgroups" no longer appears on the main TB page and clicking on Account Settings for my Mozilla News configuration does not show any option to specify a password. I see options setting up a new NEWSGROUP account. A search found a few folks talking about this but they mentioned clicking the now missing "manage newsgroups".

Is mozilla.news.org still supported?

For some reason I am starting to get emails addressed to other people. To be clear, our names are similar but not exact. For example, the email is addressed to [edited] @AOL.com or something close to it. The email addressed to that person shows up in my Inbox.I would like to know how can I stop this from happening and why did it start in the first place. Also, has this happened to other users? Is there anyway to test my email to see if it has been compromised?

bold textHello,

I set up my own ocsp server thanks to openssl. I have a rootCA and some client certificates. Inside those client certificates, there is a authority info paragraph with the URL for the HTTP server and the protocol OCSP. Unfortunately I did not manage to force Thunderbird to send the OCSP request toward my own OCSP server. Instead it's sending the request to another server. Anyone knows how to redirect Thunderbird's request to a specific OCSP server ?

Thank you

I would like to temporarily disable the password manager before the computer goes to sleep or I leave it on in an active state and walk away from it for a short time. I do not want to exit FF but would like to keep all tabs open. As of now, if the computer sleeps, and upon awaking, I try access a password protected website FF will fill in the password and will not require a Password Manager Primary password. I would like FF to require the Primary password up awaking from the sleep state, and also be able turn off the password manager while the computer is in an active state.

The Markup published an article yesterday revealing how some of the biggest tax preparation websites out there are passing confidential information back to Meta/Facebook.

It appears that this is something that the Facebook Container plugin would block, but I wanted to double-check and make sure.

Since last Friday I haven't been able to access any of my bank accounts with US Bank. I can access these accounts through my US Bank phone app and through Chrome when I use it on my laptop as browser. When I called US Bank IT they could not help because the phone app and Chrome worked. What's happening with Firefox? I have used it for years to get to these accounts, and now I am unable to.
