I've encountered one message in Thunderbird that has remote content enabled (which I don't recall explicitly enabling). In Settings, under "Allow remote content in messages" (unchecked), the "Exceptions..." list is empty. I've also cleared the cache, switched to offline mode, and went back to that message, but it still shows remote content.

I keep getting the prompt* about new.thunderbird.net expiration.

Indeed, after opening https://new.thunderbird.net in Firefox, the subdomain uses the Let's Encrypt SSL certificate that expired on 22nd May 2024. This certificate list many subdomains by name.

For https://www.thunderbird.net (after opening it in Firefox), another SSL certificate file is used (issued by Google Trust Services LLC by on 13 May 2024) valid until 11 Aug 2024. It says it should apply to thunderbird.net and *.thunderbird.net, but the new.thunderbird.net still points to the old Let's Encrypt certificate perhaps?

  • I know I could just allow the expired one as an exception

While using Thunderbird, it mysteriously stopped connecting to Yahoo Mail. This happens every few years and I think it's related to Oauth2 credentials.

I generated a new secure mail key and copied it into Thunderbird but that didn't work. So then I checked online, and one of the steps in the Thunderbird instructions is: "Select 'Server Settings' for mail account; Set incoming server 'Authentication Method' to 'Oauth2'; Click on 'OK' ". But Oauth2 isn't one of the options. The choices are normal password, encrypted password, Kerberos/GSSAPI, and NTLM.


I'm using POP. Tbird version 115.11.1.

When using Firefox (latest) and attempting to login into a website I get an error (see attached image) generated by the host's server's firewall. It appears it thinks I'm a bot. When I use Firefox's privacy mode I don't get this error. I would prefer not to use privacy mode. I contacted the administrator of the website I'm attempting to access and he couldn't offer any help.

When I use Google Chrome browser I don't encounter the above problem. This leads me to believe it's not an issue with my Avast Anti-Tracking and Antivirus settings.

Any help would be appreciated.

Guten Tag,

ich benötige Hilfe das Googlefenster weg zu bekommen. Ich möchte mich nicht über Google anmelden, wenn ich es auch über Mozilla kann. Die Anmeldedaten von Mozilla funktionieren nicht.

Bitte sagen Sie mir, wie ich das Problem lösen kann.

In dem Fenster habe ich keine Möglichkeiten die Links an zu klicken, da dann das Fenster weiß wird. Ich kann es nur wegklicken, es kommt aber innerhalb von 5 Minuten wieder. Oder ich melde mich mit google an, was ich aber nicht möchte.

Danke für Ihre Hilfe.

Not so newbee here. Very long career in S/W, but 20 years as a Luddite so now trying to catch up.

3 gmail accs - all good. 3 hotkey accs - receive ok, but cannot send - broken recently. These old legacy accs were taken over by iPrimus but are still visible/SameSameBroken at hotkey webmail.

1 of the 3 hotkey is set to Default. It is MORE broken than the other 2. How do I remove this Default? I will choose a gmail account to be the Default. But how exactly do i unDefault the hotkey acc.

No, I don't need nor want, to use iPrimus pop/smtp settings. Yes, the broken hotkey smtp issue is probably no biggy - just work in hand.

Thanks for any assistance... I see this thread is very busy. ps, I remain committed to the goals of Open (free) Software. If only the worldview was as committed, how good it would be for everyone!

I have just completely reinstalled Thunderbird v115.11.1 after uninstalling the previous installation. There are two problems, possibly linked to a faulty or missing setting.

Remote images will not display, even after specifically enabling remote images for each email, or after turning on "display remote content" as a default. Also it claims there is a potential security threat with Thunderbird's own web addresses: "live.thunderbird.net." and "addons.thunderbird.net.".

I have attached screen-shots of the error messages, and of a thunderbird email that fails to display its images.

My wife & I have the same PCs running Windows 10 & Thunderbird 115.11.0 (32bit).

We have a hosted web-site that also supports email, and we each have an email account (eg neddy@goon.com.au & minnie@goon.com.au). I've checked that both our POP server configurations are identical but despite that about once a week minnie@goon.com.au receives a warning to add security exception but neddy doesn't. This started happening two weeks ago after a years error free running.

The host has checked that goon.com.au has a valid SSL certificate, so what could be causing the discrepancy and how do I set about fixing it please?

Please tell me there is a better way to fix this problem.

I installed Thunderbird and downloaded the mail (IMAP server) to the mailbox, but at the same time the program deleted all the mail from the server!!! I can't find anywhere in Thunderbird how to turn it off so that the program doesn't delete messages from the server. Someone suggested that you should turn off "the selected folder will be available in offline mode" in the Synchronization tab. I did it, but it didn't help and I turned it on again. Now I don't have my messages anywhere, neither on my computer nor on the server. Rescue news from ten years - where are they????

First, I am supporting a family member, who has TB configured on two separate machines. Configuring for Comcast IMAP+SMTP, in the usual manner; nothing esoteric about that, all very routine.

Machine A seems to be working okay, no errors. TB up to date on this machine, connected over an ethernet wire, if that makes any difference.

Machine B, getting spam prompted over IMAP 1014 errors. No other information is provided than 1014.

I have tried dropping the account configuration hundred percent, restarting TB, re-adding the account configuration, to no avail. Still spam 1014 errors.

I did happen to notice TB needed an update, so I did that as well. Still 1014 errors.

I have also tried dropping that email saved password from the saved passwords, and responding to the subsequent re-enter password prompt. Also to no avail.

What if anything might have changed, and how can we contend with this? What is so corrupt, do we need to be mucking around in any AppData files, roaming files, etc?

We are not the only ones, apparently, to have bumped into this issue. Not sure if this is also Comcast specific, since a recent TB and/or IMAP specification change, i.e. maybe we try with a gmail account, for instance.

Wondering also, is it IMAP and/or Comcast somehow tieing Machine A to the IMAP and not releasing that association? Knowing a little bit about IMAP in this regard. And/or somehow now prohibiting Machine B+ from establishing a connection?

Fifefox does not save a new payment method, clicking on save does nothing

Hi, it seems that my Firefox browser does not want to save a new payment method. I'm trying to access "Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Autofill" and then click on "Saved payment methods", which opens a dialog with the existing payment methods and options to remove/add/edit. I'm clicking on Add, filling-in the card details and then clicking Save, nothing happens....

I previously had a working saved payment method, but it stopped working (I think more than 6 months ago). I tried to re-enable the credit cards by setting the following configs on about:config page:

- extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available: true
- extensions.formautofill.creditCards.supportedCountries: '...,RO' -> (I was adding my country to the existing list)

After the browser restart with those new settings when I'm on a payment page, clicking on a credit card field will show the saved credit card but if I click on it, it will not fill the details. And also trying to save a new card, manually as described previously in this message, or by the automatically prompt to save a new card after a successful payment was done. Both methods failed on me but with no error (I cannot see the saved payment on the list).

I tried removing the existing saved card, it worked removing it, but the add is still not working.

I also tried restarting in save mode, launching Firefox in a separate profile and added my country on the creditCards config for supportedCountries to show the "Saved payment methods" button on new profile, and it did not change anything.

I'm thinking there is a missing permission somewhere on the disk but I don't know where is the payment data stored on disk.

I would really appreciate any help on this.

PS: Check the attached pic to see the payment add and clicking the save button does nothing (also there are no validation errors). And the other: FF version, OS, troubleshooting info.

Hi, 3 weeks ago I suddenly could not log in to my email without errors.

First I get a Google screen "Choose an account" showing the three Gmail accounts I use. I select the first one.

"Mozilla Thunderbird wants to access your Google Account". This refers to calendars. I take the Allow option.

Then I get the message "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to localhost. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

When I close this window I get another Google screen .

"Mozilla Thunderbird wants to access your Google Account". This refers to i) mail, ii) contacts, and iii) calendars. I take the Allow option.

Then I get the same message message "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to localhost. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details."

This process cycles through the other two emails. Then I get and authentication failure message.

I have seen hints that this might be a certificate issue but I have tried in vain to find certificates stored in Thunderbird.

Any help approeciated.

Thanks
