Manage Exceptions button for cookies is not working for me since FF88 or 89, don’t remember which version precisely. I click on the button and the dialogue box that would normally appear to set exceptions does not pop up. Moreover it looks like when I click on the button the user interface on that tab freezes for a period. My FF profile is customised. I know if I start with a blank profile the issue goes away. I have another that works fine. However I would rather try to fix this issue in my current profile. I poked around in about:config but so far have had no success.

Any ideas? I searched google but could not find anything. Also checked mozilla bugzilla a while back without success. I am using FF 92 on Arch Linux.

Filters would be a lot easier to handle if you could put more than one result for the same condition on the same line instead of just one per line. Right now, if you have a lot of conditions it makes it clunky and takes almost the whole screen when adding or modifying a filter, it's also a pain when trying to change,add or remove a filter condition. It would take less space and less lines if you could add an (Or) and simply put it on the same line. Could use a function to easily 'backup Emails as well as Users' instead of backing up whole directories and sub directories, it's not very efficient and user friendly. Furthermore, had to reinstall Thunderbird 91 more than 2 times to get the filters working like I wanted to. I used Foxmail for years and wanted to give Thunderbird a try, I really like the interface but some things are driving me off like I mentionned above. I suggest you take a look at Foxmail to see how the features are implemented and use those ideas to make Thunderbird more practical and user friendly. I'm using windows 10 22h2.

I beleive it's a great software but it has to be refined a bit more.

You guy's are doing a great job. I look forward migrating to Thunderbird as soon as some issues are handled and it's more stable and getrid of Foxmail for good.

Firefox Android cannot access Google Drive. All files and folders are grayed out. Other browsers like Opera, Vivaldi are able to access Google Drive.

I tried to upload a image Opera and Firefox. Both the browsers open File manager system app and shows the folders and cloud storage drives.

Firefox just shows Google drive, Dropbox, Onedrive. Opera shows the above three with the user accounts.

Firefox is not able to access the files in Google drive. All files are listed but grayed out. When Dropbox/Onedrive is clicked, Firefox opens the respective apps.

Opera shows these apps with the user accounts signed and also the files can be accessed.

Firefox reports a secure connection without existing certificate

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

TLS connection/certificates information

Hello Community,

In Firefox for Android (both Stable ans Beta) I am completely unable to find a way to show the details of and HTTPS/TLS connection (protocol and ciphers used, issuing authority, common name and SANs, validity and so on).

The desktop version of Firefox and almost every other mobile app I tried support displaying this information (with varying dégrée of verbosity).

Especially when the certificate verification fails it would be very useful to see such details, and it seems a bit weird that a browser like Firefox doesn't provider such a basic feature. I am sure that I'm missing something very stupid

I am suffering from the same issue posted on AskDifferent and since there is no answer there, I thought to paste the question here.

I have installed Firefox (version 90.0.2) on macOS version 11.5.1. In the Camera and Microphone panes under the Privacy tab in Security & Privacy settings, Firefox is missing.

I tried this answer and this, then opened Firefox and navigated to a website that prompted for using the cam and mic.

Yet, when I approved it on Firefox, the Mac privacy dialog did not pop.

How can I give permissions to Firefox for microphone and camera to be able to use them in Firefox? (should it be by modifying the privacy database?) Is this a Firefox bug? Right now, it forces me to use other internet browsers :(

chosen primary password not working anymore...

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!
