I recently was looking through my autofill addresses when I noticed a name that should not be there. Someone I do not know in some state that I do not live in. I quickly changed my firefox password and various passwords that may have been compromised.

My question is, how worried should I be? How did they get my password or access to a PC with my account active on it. Then why would they be so daft to save their name and address as the autofill?

Is there any way I can check when it was made or pass this on to Mozilla support?

Hello, I want to use S/MIME in Thunerbird 78.10.1 (64-bit). In my account settings i've import a .pfx-file. I created this certificate with openssl. I choose this personal certificate for digital signature and encryption (i want to use end-to-end encryption).

If I try to send a signed mail I got an error message: "Application could not find the signing certificate which I choose in my account settings [...]" --> imprecise wording, I am using Thunderbird in German

But I only got this error message, if I choose as encryption technology S/MIME. When I choose OpenPGP as encryption technology I got no error message and the e-mail is sent digital signed.

Where is the problem?

Thanks for help.

When I go to maps.google.com the screen pauses and does not go to the site until I refresh or reselect the bookmark. The about:networking shows maps.google.com as port 80. The site is https and I am using D.O.H. so I would not expect to see any port 80 value for maps.google.com.

Is this a known bug?

Privacy bugs in Firefox 88 on Linux

Hi,

The privacy and security settings don't work on Firefox 88 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS). Many sites will offer the option to 'Login with google/facebook/whatever' rather than creating a new account for that specific site. One really annoying (and dangerous) consequence of 'logging in with google' is that it remains logged in. So for example if I log in to non-google siteX using my google credentials and then hours later open gmail in a different tab I get straight through to my gmail inbox without having to supply any credentials (and indeed any other user of the same machine could do the same). Obviously this highly insecure and dangerous policy of keeping me logged in indefinitely is implemented by Google for their own agenda and has nothing to do with Firefox. The bug in Firefox is that when I clear all data to work around this google problem FIREFOX does not work as advertised. So to try to 'force' a logout from my Google account I go to Firefox -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies & Site Data -> Clear Data, after a few minutes of churning away at my harddrive Firefox informs me that 'Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 bytes of disk space.' For good measure I then hit the 'Clear History' button. After this I open a fresh tab and go to gmail and I get straight into my inbox, no credentials required, so clearly Firfox is NOT deleting all cookies etc and is mis-reporting that 0 bytes are being used. So, does anyone know where/how I should report this dangerous privacy bug ?

Thanks MH

Hello, I'm trying to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account but each time I try I get the following message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email" I'm not typing the same main email address, I'm actually trying to type another one. The only possible reason that comes to my mind is that the address I want to add is already used as a secondary address for another Firefox account (namely, the one I use at work). I don't know if it makes sense, but it's the only possible situation this address is to be already found. Any ideas why this happens and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

I am asked for a master password which I have never had to supply before so I don't have one. I am also told that if I change my password I will lose all my previous emails.

I'm a web development student doing a class in MongoDB, mongoose, node.js. We are being walked through https and SSL(or whatever they are calling it this week) by creating a self-signed certificate through OpenSSL that will allow us to use the localhost to test our authentication schemes (user vs admin having proper access to different endpoints of the router). How to do this in Firefox. Even the advanced button on the error page doesn't seem to allow me to bypass and "take the risk" anymore like it used to. Thanks for help.

Hello, sorry for my English. I would like sometimes to launch Firefox behind VPN. I can indeed do it by using options manually, it works perfectly. All along my search, I have found that a private mode launcher can be made ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window). Is there any similar instruction, but for a Firefox manual VPN option activate ? Thank you for your attention.

When trying to paste text in a message window this message pops up:

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

I have no idea why and have looked all over the FF settings for something to change, but no luck.

I'm also suddenly having problems with TamperMonkey not running scripts even though it shows they are enabled.

I was able to past directly into the "Plugins" window below.

Win7 Pro, I'm the only user on PC.

Thanks.

I don't mind having a chat feature in Thunderbird, but due to my deeply ingrained hatred towards Google, I want Gtalk completely gone from my Linux PC. It's obsolete anyway. How do I remove it from Chat on Thunderbird? Is it integrated into the Thunderbird deb package, or some sort of plugin or separate package? I don't mind losing the entire chat feature, since I don't use it anyway.

I've used Firefox for many years, and NEVER has the "block audio and video" setting ever worked. It is really annoying to be trying to read an article and have a video playing - distracting me - while I'm trying to read. When I try to ignore it and scroll past, it pops out and starts playing in the lower right hand corner in the way of whatever I'm trying to read, so I have to close the video down. I'm not a programmer, I'm a simple user. Why is Mozilla even pretending to block videos when they don't?

Hi. I received a legitimate email, Firefox Monitor <breach-alerts@mozilla.com> notifying me that my email had been breached. I changed my password and received notification that the new pw was accepted. When I tried to login on my laptop and entered my email, I was not allowed to Continue to the next page to enter the new password. Surprisingly, to me, the Community Forum page DID accept my new login information. It appears I can still use Firefox browser on my android phone (Galaxy s10) but previous websites that were open were gone, which didn't surprise me. However, on my Galaxy s4 tablet, all the previously opened pages are still there. At this point, my main issue is how can I sign into Firefox Monitor on my laptop? Thanks for your help.

Because a financial organisation required separate emails for different accounts I added two accounts to my PC. Over the past weekend I have had problems with spoofing on my main account (incoming mail diverted) but appear to have corrected that. Now I am being requested a password simply for one of the new accounts, (it accepted an incoming mail earlier today). Looking at the stored passwords provides me with a password, updated today, which does not work, nor will my main BT account password (revised after the spoofing). I saw a reference in another reply to "password recovery", how do I access that?
