My new computer is running Windows 11. I just tried to log on to my Vanguard account and the Logon button has no response. Using Microsoft Edge I had no problems logging on so the issue must be with Firefox security controls. I have turned off Ad Blocker Ultimate as well as made an exception for cookies from this site. What can I do to fix this?

I will visit tomorrow, barring emergencies.

Please tell me when this has iINITIALLY been read by a human, by putting 77 in the heading and body of an email BACK TO ME ... I WON'T expect anything else to have been done by then.

thanks!

Someone else's name is showing up as a saved login user name on Twitter.com - Firefox only

I use Firefox (94.0.2) on a Macbook Pro (using MacOS 11.6.1) and went to log in to Twitter this evening and had a strange result. I only occasionally view Twitter using my laptop and I use my email address and a password to log in. When I clicked in the field that reads "Phone, user name or email" I expected to see the Firefox autofill to show my email address, but instead it shows the name "Farha Hussain" (see screenshot image).

I checked my Firefox preferences for Saved Logins and I have my email address and password for Twitter saved there, but no mention of Farha Hussain (my name is Keith). I tried other websites to see if I could recreate the issue and couldn't. I visited the Twitter login form using Chrome and Safari and neither suggested Farha Hussain as a user name, so I think that this is something specific to Firefox on the Twitter website.

To make this an even more unusual situation, the only "Farha Hussain" that I know is a doctor in my city who I have been meaning to contact to see if she is accepting patients, but haven't yet done so. Her name is in my Mac Calendar and that's the only place I can think of on my computer (not in contacts or anywhere else). How this would be connected to a Twitter login is beyond my understanding.

Let me know if you would like additional information or screenshots.

Firefox Daylight (94.1.2) > Secret Settings > Use third party CA certificates (Allows the use of third party certificates from the Android CA store)

1. Hay dispositivos con Sistema Operativo Android que NO disponen de la posibilidad de instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Usuario.

1. There are devices with Android Operating System that DO NOT have the possibility of installing certificates in the User's Storage.

2. Parece que Firefox NO reconoce y acepta aquellos certificados que hayan sido instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

2. It seems that Firefox does NOT recognize and accept those certificates that have been installed in the System Storage.

Digo "parece que no" porque desconozco la raíz del problema. Sin embargo, así viene sucediendo desde que aparecieron las "Secret Settings": Firefox NO atiende los certificados instalados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

I say "it seems not" because I do not know the root of the problem. However, this has been the case since the "Secret Settings" appeared: Firefox does NOT serve the certificates installed in the System Storage.

Y esto origina un gran problema a todos los usuarios de Firefox cuyos dispositivos Android sólo permiten instalar certificados en el Almacenamiento del Sistema.

And this causes a big problem for all Firefox users whose Android devices only allow to install certificates in the System Storage.

En esa situación, Firefox no funciona correctamente cuando debe interactuar con otra magnífica aplicación como es AdGuard AdBlocker.

In that situation, Firefox does not work properly when it must interact with another magnificent application such as AdGuard AdBlocker.

Por favor, observen que no hablo de AdGuard como "add-on" de Firefox...

Please, note that I do not speak of AdGuard as a Firefox "add-on"...

Y, por lo que más queráis, os ruego que, aunque el planteamiento de este problema pueda ser algo difícil de comprender, pongáis toda vuestra atención en el hecho de que Firefox parece fallar a la hora de utilizar cualquier certificado que haya sido almacenado en el Sistema.

And, for what you want more, I beg you that, although the approach to this problem may be somewhat difficult to understand, put all your attention on the fact that Firefox seems to fail to use any certificate that has been stored in the System.

Sólo trato de advertir a todos sobre este gran fallo con la esperanza de que ustedes, los de Mozilla, puedan y quieran arreglarlo.

I'm just trying to warn everyone about this big bug in the hope that you, guys at Mozilla, can and will fix it.

Hello,

When I go to use Firefox on my Mac computer I get a message that says Bitdefender will not give me permission to download files and Firefox blocks them. Bitdefender is the virus detector that I use and it has worked so far but this is the only trouble I seem to have with it.

I would appreciate your help.

Thank You

I recently received an email with the "Disposition-Notification-To" header set. When I read the email, my Thunderbird client sent a "read receipt" to the sender to inform them I had read the email.

I do not want Thunderbird to do this. How do I prevent it?

Looking through the configuration options, the only vaguely relevant setting I can find is "Determine how Thunderbird handles return receipts". I don't know if this is the correct thing to set but, even if it is, it doesn't seem to work. Under "When I receive a request for a return receipt", it's already set to "Never send a return receipt". I also have Thunderbird set up to block remote content in the message to prevent html-based read receipts, so how is my client still sending them?

I only know that this one was sent because the email address it sent to was faulty so I received a failed mail delivery message. Who knows how many others Thunderbird is sending that I'm simply not aware of!

Hello,

I want to know one thing, you have added a feature that allows Firefox to generate a random strong password. That randomly generated 'strong' password has everything except a special character. How can you say the password is secure if there is no special character in that. Almost 95% of the websites don't accept a password without a special character. May be give an option in the settings to customize the suggested password like character types and character length. That would be just perfect.

Thanks

Recently lost all login/password data in firefox. After browsing the support I discovered that I have a corrupt logins.json file, around 270kb in size, and a logins.json file around 10kb in size.

Renaming the corrupt file to logins.json doesn't seem to recover the passwords/logins (even temporarily). Tried rolling firefox back to an older version and that didn't work either.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix the corrupt file?

Thanks.

After quitting a company, in Thunderbird I removed the related IMAP account I had for it on my home desktop (Office365 account) with the "remove account" action.

Yet the associated folder named "outlook.office365.com " within "ImapMail" is still there. How can I remove that too? I can reuse the 16GB it takes.
