I'm using the current Firefox-ESR for Linux x86_64. Under Settings > Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Exceptions, I blocked http:174.138.51.92 and https:174.138.51.92 several weeks ago. But Manage Data shows 10 cookies last used 45 minutes ago, and Remove Selection for these cookies fails (incidentally retaining the "last used" value), even when repeated multiple times as fast as I can mouse the select, then Remove Selection, then Save Changes then Manage Data .

How can I delete these cookies and site data? And why does it fail for this site and this site only? And how can I block them permanently, short of black-holing that site in /etc/hosts?

Trying to forward an e-mail from the UK National Health Service results in message:

Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Message detected as spam. [1709223430-338018].. Please check the message and try again.

How do I overcome what is obviously incorrect feedback? My TB mail client and server did not detect anything during receipt. There do not appear to be any client-based TB detection tools where I can identify suspect content or the particular server.

Context Menu: "This Frame -> Open in New Tab" does not preserve the private browsing container

If I right click on an iframe when browsing in a container tab, and select "This Frame -> Open in New Tab", the new tab is not in the same container as the source tab. In fact it is not in any container.

Whereas when middle-clicking on a normal link to open it in a new tab, the new tab is in the same container as the source tab.

Is this a bug? Seems like a bug to me. Surely we would want the new tab to use the same container as the source tab?

Local File Access

Dear Support Team,

I tried enabling localfilelinks in firefox and found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/1264779 which mentions creating a "user.js" file and adding this:

/ Create policy enabling http: or https: pages to link to file: user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "filelinks"); user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

// Sites to which the policy applies (protocol://hostname protocol://hostname) user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.sites", "http://example.com http://intranet");

then reloading firefox.

The fix worked and i was able to use local files in firefox. My Problem now is reverting localfileaccess to default (blocked).

i tried modifying the "user.js", deleting it, deleting and reinstalling firefox, cleaning the firefox install and creating a new profile. when i deleted user.js the enabled options vanished from "prefs.js" but local file access was still enabled. I also tried to edit the generated options in about:config but i cannot get it to revert to localfile access beeing locked and couldn't find any way to fix my problem.

Is there an easy way to relock this?

Hi, After latest update (123.0) usernames and passwords are not auto filling.

- I noticed that "Ask to save passwords" is unchecked and not configurable(or grayed out). - I tried troubleshoot mode and did refresh too, no use. - History setting is set to "Always remember history".

Note: I see the banner: "Your browser is being managed by your organization.", There I dont see any of these settings controlled except primary password is turned off.

The credit card save/auto-fill option seems to have disappeared from the settings on Firefox. I previously had it set to 'off', but when there was an issue recently I found the option was gone - although the about:config was still showing credit card options. Has this option been removed from Firefox now?

Hello. I recently went back to Thunderbird after having used the default Mail app in Windows 10 and 11 for some time. I am pleased with how it works and intend to now use it as my default email client. However, I am concerned that the option to make images visible in emails extends to the entire program, and emails that my mail providers have identified as spam and sent to a "Junk" folder will show embedded images. This was not an issue with the Mail app in Windows.

This is not good for security and privacy, as displaying images on spam messages is a way for spammers to confirm an account is live and thus continue sending their garbage. Would it be possible to have Thunderbird block images *only* in specific folders of the user's choosing, while still be able to see them in the rest of the user folders?

Thanks.
