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.

Reference #18.37022417.1617761856.4d8aaa4d

Thank you for your time in advance!

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:

4ut693zdfcp049stev5dd679*. To long and too complicated. And does not give me choice to make my own. It is like a rabid pitbull.

No thanks. I understand this dreadful thing is imbedded? How can I get it to go away? Susan Taylor

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.

Kernel: 5.4.0-70-generic x86_64 GCC v: 9.3.0 Desktop: Cinnamon 4.6.7 Distro: Linux Mint 20 Ulyana Base: Ubuntu 20.04 focal

Firefox for Linux Mint: 87.0 (64-bit)

This is said about master password: Important: After you have defined and set your primary password, you will be prompted to enter it once for each Firefox session, when Firefox needs access to your stored passwords. This also applies if you want to add, remove or show a password.

I think that "when Firefox needs access.." should be changed to "regardless if Firefox needs it or not".

It would be much better if the master password promt was delayed until the first time it was needed.

Hello, I have set up a master password on my Thunderbird client and it asks for it very time I open up Thunderbird, like it should. Unfortunately, I tried bypassing the password prompt and it is very easy : Thunderbird loads a window asking for the password, but by simply closing it, Thunderbird still boots up. Once it's open, you can see the accounts. It asks for the password again, but if you close it once more, you can access the inbox of an account. It asks for the password, you just close it and you can access the individual emails. It creates a huge security breach and defeats the whole purpose of having a password on my local client, being that even if somebody gets their hands on my computer and inside my session, they still can't access my email. Worse, it cannot work as a deterrent : if you open Thunderbird, see the password window and decide not to try to open Thunderbird, by closing the window, you will still access the inbox like shown above.

I use Thunderbird 78.9.0, which, I believe, is the most recent version.

Thank you for any help, Paul

Hello, I would like to log out remotely from the Firefox browser that is installed on another device because it automatically logs in to all websites that I have visited frequently. Among other things, it is a discord where I value privacy very much and I do not want any person using the laptop (because there is no password and the device is also used by other people in the family) to have access to the account. First of all, I want to log out of the browser (i.e. simply log in again to just protect my data). This need came to me because the website (I closed the discord and I am 100% sure of it and it shows me that it is open all the time). I apologize in advance for the spelling because I translated myself with a translator because I do not know English very well.
