I know how I can enable camera access for FireFox on Android.

So via Android settings I can find FireFox app and then allow camera access.

Also in FireFox browser I can go to settings and then set camera to ask for permission.

This is however not enough. If I enable camera I will still be unable to use the camera.

So the question is still open: how can I use the camera when using FireFox on Android. Is there a way this can be done? Or is this unsupported?

Thunderbird 86.0b3 20210212193837 won't ask to save email account passwords

Lately I've been repeatedly asked for my SMTP password on the first email I send of the day (until closing TB) from certain accounts of those I have.

There appears to be nowhere where I can just ADD an SMTP account and it's respective password.

The particular accou8nt does not appear in the SMTP list of about ten accounts I have. Thus I can't edit it.

Believe me, for the two accounts in which this has been happening, they were once in that list.

Now the account is there but the smtp usage data is not on a line.

And when I do enter the respective password, TB does not ask me to remember it nor make an addition to the SMTP list.

thanks

For some reason Firefox is deleting my browsing history every time I exit the browser. I do not have the setting enabled to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed'.

This seems to have started happening since I told Firefox to 'forget' a couple of sites in my browsing history.

I do not have any external programmes such as antivirus that would delete the browsing history.

What could be causing this?

About a week or two ago, every email ended with "Login to server smtp.mail.com with username jo4hn@mail.com failed" and a request for a new password. I cannot remember what the password was or if I ever knew it. I worked in CS for 30+ years and am now 20 years in obsolescence. If someone could carefully guide an old fart through this recovery, I will be eternally grateful.

Hi, I'm unable to change my Firefox Account password.

I navigate to the Manage Account page, click Change next to Password and enter my old and new password and nothing happens. The page gives no indication that the change has applied and my password remains the same.

I have also tried this in a private window, on Google Chrome and on my phone and the same thing happens.

why does firefox refuse to open because unsafe document etc, and when the same(within firefox) is entered into google surch, the respective page is available, can be opened and confirms that it is a safe page. No problem to open in edge. The various tipps do not help. antivirus is F-secure. cleaning cookies and cache did not help either.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 on macOS 11.2.1 and I can't load the PKCS11 Device Driver for my eSign. All the necessary drivers are installed on the system and the Charismatics Scard Utility recognises the devices properly. What's even stranger, is that I was able to add the device in Thunderbird (78.7.1).

Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong and get the device working, please?

Thanks!

Am I crazy or is there something wrong?

I'm getting a new blue dot over the HTTPS icon on all pages. I am using the add-ons Noscript, uBlock and HTTPS everywhere, but this icon is new. I can find no reference to it in support articles; only the secure, insecure, and mixed (warning sign) variations of the icon I am familiar with.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox after getting insecure connections intermittently. I was using a game wiki (starbounder.org) and saw a "debug log" that seemed to be a list of IPs and user agents, with the URL of a site (cloudwayapps). The errors seem to have started after this, though this doesn't make much sense as I've never allowed cloudwayapps to run scripts, but it freaked me out. I cleared my cache and app data and never had an account until now; the install should be fresh. I browse with all javascript blocked by default and stick to major sites.

Attached is the icon displayed as I write this. What does it mean? Also, is there a way to get a "clean" install besides what I've tried? I want to keep using Firefox but these errors have my paranoia going.

Thanks for reading. Any help or feedback is appreciated.

Recently I have issues in Zoom meetings. To make browsing a bit more private I went and activated some of the settings from privacytools.io, but I can't remember changing privacy settings before the problems started occuring. On the Firefox Beta channel I don't see any video streams (not even my own) and on the nightly channel I hear others audio speed up and they sound like mice and they here me extemely slow.

Does anyone else have these issues or an idea which settings might cause this?

As per topic title, while downloading files from my university website for class and switching back to a youtube page, I got the strange popup "Would you like to make this document your home page?" I selected no, but I would like to know if this is merely something that can happen at random with Firefox, or potential malware or the like.

Thank you.
