Hello,

How can I import a root CA certificate to Firefox for Android? I tried uploading the certificate to a webserver and navigating to it with Firefox for Android, but it does not work, either it downloads the file or display its PEM text content, no import prompt.

I have Firefox 84.0.1 on Linux Mint, and I have filled in the information for one credit card. When I hover over credit card fields on retail site forms, I usually (but not always) get a pop-up "hint" showing the card number and/or expiration date ... but I cannot get the browser to actually fill in the form field. I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.

Hi there, I would like to “generally accept all cookies” for future surfing through the internet. I found this description (see below), but it doesn’t seem to work (help might me older before latest browser updates), could someone tell me how to set Firefox to accept all cookies? Thank you.

1. Click the Tools menu from the top toolbar. 2. Choose Options. 3. Click the Privacy tab. 4. Under "History" select "Use custom settings for history" from the drop-down menu beside "Firefox will." 5. Ensure that the checkboxes for "Accept cookies from sites" and "Accept third-party cookies" are both checked. 6. Click OK.

I have been using Thunderbird successfully for many years and use the latest version on my desktop pc (Win 10, 64 bit) for various gmail en other email accounts. However, when I changed my password in Gmail, I couldn't implement this in Thunderbird and I sadly decided to delete this account, including smtp and passwords for this account and tried to set it up again. This fails I get a message that username, password or settings are wrong. Tried several times, without success. However I decided to try it out on my laptop after downloading Thunderbird and I was able to set the accounts up without any problem, went very easy, so there seems not to be an issue on the data I tried to use. So I am stuck, could it be that somewhere old imaps are blocking it, if so what could I do, if not what else is the solution? If possible like to avoid deleting Thunderbird, since I have made a lot of local files which I do not want to loose or have to recover apart from the other working email accounts. The problem solving page shows different account numbers: 2, 8, 10 and 14

account2 (none) Local Folders Geen Normaal wachtwoord account8 (pop3) pop3.telfort.nl:995 SSL/TLS Normaal wachtwoord smtp.telfort.nl:25 Geen Normaal wachtwoord true account10 (imap) imap.googlemail.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.gmail.com:465 SSL/TLS OAuth2 true account14 (imap) imap.gmail.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.gmail.com:465 SSL/TLS OAuth2 true

Would be pleased if someone could give advice, regards Klaas

This is on fIrefox version 85 in Linux.

Last week I was discouraged to find out that my cache was taking up 2 GB of space, some YEARS old. So I decided to purge it and then keep it clean.

The cache gets stored in two places: the linux home .cache folder AND the firefox profile's cache2 folder.

To keep things REALLY clean I checked the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checkbox, then manually enter the exceptions for web sites I do not want to block. Then I specifically added sites I really despise (google, for example) to the block list.

The data still gets cached, even after closing and reopening the browser the cache is still there (verified both via about:cache and by just looking in the folders).

Even when I purge the cache completely, verify nothing is there (about:cache) after deleting the cache folders from the hard drive, it keeps coming back, like a bad computer virus.

My interim solution is a crontab that runs every hour to clear old cache, but that seems silly. Do these security settings actually do anything? What am I doing wrong?

I have Bitdefender total security and several times per minute for hours per day I get messages that firefox is trying to connect to an untrusted source and I'm wondering if you can help me get it to stop. It seems to happen primarily when I am using NordVPN with a United States IP address.

This is the message I continue to get from Bitdefender:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to trends.newsmaxwidget.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.


I don't know what this trends.newsmaxwidget.com certificate is or where to find it to delete it. Can it be deleted? Is this a problem with my VPN?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

We had gotten a new internet provider a couple months back so email addresses were changed over and my email for my Mozilla login in is no longer accessible. In the mean time this week our computer died and we purchased a new one. Now when you try to login to mozilla to access my bookmarks and other things, which has 10 plus years of book Mark's on it wants to send a email code to the email I have no access to. I cant even add a secondary email or actually get past the login in page. Is there a customer support contact to help change the email on their side?

Hi,

I'm a bit old and really need someone nearby to come show me how to navigate into your securities and other benefits, someone who really knows all this. Is that possible? I get confused by the complexities of everything you offer.

For example, I read something about Ad blocker which said it wants access to all my inforamation- does that mean they want all my bank numbers for trading stocks? That would seem ridiculous, no?

It would also be time to make a small donation to assist your existence. How?

Thank you, Doug Calder [phone number] and you have the rest.

Hi,

Shortly after Firefox Android Bitwarden add-on (not sure how many versions after), auto fill of the Bitwarden app no longer works on Firefox. The text-bind pop-up of Bitwarden autofill suggestion shows up, bitwarden opens and has detected the website entry, but autofill doesn't work after getting back to Firefox Android.

Both apps are updated (Firefox 85.1.3) and I don't have this issue with the chrome app.

This error just suddenly appeared preventing me from sending email to anyone including myself: Receiving emails OK.

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.7.1 <ols1439@ca.inter.net>: Recipient address rejected: Access denied. Please ensure that you are using the correct identity to send and that the used authentication method is correct. Verify that you are allowed to send via this SMTP server with your current credentials from your current network.

My ISP provider sugested this fix which did not work :

1-From the menu at the top right, go to Options. 2-Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on Config Editor. 3-Skip past the warning. 4-Scroll down until you find security.tls.version.min (or paste security.tls.version.min to upper frame) Double click on it, and set the value to 1 (Note Current value is 3) 5-Mozilla disabled TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird. Thunderbird 73b and above. 6-This causes issues with anyone connecting via SSL/TLS/StartTLS to services uses 1.1.

I have no problem sending emails from my Ipad. Would appreciate any help resolving this. Thanks

Thunderbird 68.12 I have repeatedly marked one sender as not-junk and it has moved it successfully to the inbox. But when the next email comes in, it still goes in the junk mail. This is despite writing a message filter to put it back in inbox from the junk filter. I have looked at the instructions on spam filtering works, but it still happens. How can I stop this happening as I am missing meetings from this sender?
