I use thunderbird both on a linux laptop and under windows. I exported my private openPGP keys from Thunderbird on linux and imported them into the program on windows. When I use the windows program to send encrypted emails between accounts (e.g. from my gmail account to my hotmail account) the message can be decrypted but it says it has an invalid digital signature. This does not happen when I do this under linux. Any idea how I can fix this? Many thanks!

Running the netstat -b (or -abf) command as admin in the cmd.exe shows that Thunderbird has incoming and outgoing established port connexions to freewebarcade.com in the range port 54000-59999. This is odd. Is it a feature of Mozilla? I doubt. If not, how can such a hook be put in place? What would you suggest to get rid of the issue? Thanks

When Firefox automatically updated to 109.1 tonight, I lost all my saved passwords and bookmarks. The bookmarks aren't in a file under 'Restore' in 'Manage Bookmarks' (but I had saved them so I got most of them back). But I can't get my passwords. What happened?

I use Firefox to save and autofill passwords, which has worked perfect for years. It still works correctly on a Windows PC, but the problem is on my Huawei P30 pro phone. It used to work correctly but I tried using the phones password manager for both websites and Apps, as a safety back up. I got confused because I was getting 2 lots of suggested log ons. Therefore I switched off everything apart from Firefox. Save passwords and autofill are enabled and some websites load correctly. However some websites where the family have a variety of logons I get all the suggested logons. The list of all usernames and passwords appear but when I touch them they don't automatically fill in. If I go into the password manager on Firefox on my phone all the correct details are saved but they just don't transfer to the website. It is strange because some sites do take the password - I'm not sure but I think it's when there are a variety of possible Loggins. I tried clearing all cookies, and logged out of Firefox and back in but still have the issue. Firefox sync is still working OK.

I am attempting to disable the Recent Bookmarks section from the bookmarks menu in Firefox Windows version 111. The main solution that's been suggested in the past is to use about:config and change browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked to false.

This setting appears to be ignored in my version as changing it has no affect.

Any other steps?

Yahoo Mail will no longer allow me to get to their site without I put them in both Tracking Protection Exception and Cookie Exception. Is there a way to stop them from this? I'm on a Mac Mini (2018) Intel. I have my "Settings" in "Privacy & Security" set to - Custom: Cross-Site Tracking Cookies and Isolate other Cookies. I have had it set this way or similar with Yahoo Mail and all other sites for probably over 15 years.

Hi Firefox team,

I searched online about TLS 1.0 support history events. Looks like Firefox previously (around year of 2020) stopped supporting TLS 1.0, but later re-enable it to support some goverment TLS 1.0 website for COVID reason.

We now have a website(based TLS 1.0). That site is no longer available on Chrome, but it's still available on latest Firefox version by today(Mar 21, 2023). I'd like to know do you have a plan to officially stop supporting TLS 1.0 website again without exception? If so, when will it happen?

Thanks

Firefox is my default browser. I am sure that I have literally dozens of site logins that use my primary email address as the ID or as a recovery email (including Firefox itself). I now want to use a different email address (gmail or something more generic), since there's a slight possibility that my current email provider may not exist in the future. Is there a way to get Firefox to give me a complete list of all website logins that use this specific email address? (I don't care about passwords, I just need to know which sites I have to change.)

I am trying to block out the new little "stick marks" that post while I try to log on to a site that that I need to "google" and log on to. I tried to sign out of all the "outside sites" that want to log on, but there are sites that I need to log on to and have done this in the past. I usually go to these sites because they are important to my transacting business, accessing my bank, places I pay my bills, etc. If I want to get to these and order or pay a bill, I have to unblock each one of them??? How do I do that? If a credit company wants to contact me, they cannot do this even if we have contacted each other previously? Really?

How do I undo this already-marked system and get out of it? As you can guess, I am old and not up with the times. Please simplify your answers so a not-technical person can understand it.
