Looks like the new Thunderbird updated, after it relaunched my Thunderbird wont open to my email accounts. I get a pop up Windows Security alert that shows an email address of an old account I don't use now and a password I can't remember as it was 5 years ago. I have no way to get new one as it was company email I do not work for now.

Thing is now I can't get past that pop up alert for an old account to make Thunderbird launch as normal. Any ideas please? Photo below.

Does Thunderbird email message filtering support wild cards?

I am plagued with multiple spam messages every hour. I get 30-40 per day every single day, day after day after day. The spammer is clever and has managed to elude being caught by the Bayesian filtering of both Gmail and Thunderbird so they pretty much all end up in my 'Inbox'. ( he is spoofing the sending domain with 128 random characters so no two messages are ever seen to be from the same sender). Very frustrating!! But there is a possible way to trap and discard this trash **IF** I can use Unix style regular expression wild cards in my filter rules.

 My question is this --- when setting up a new email filter in Thunderbird, what (if any) wild cards are supported in the "Sender Contains" argument field?  For example can I use ".........." to match any 10 character string?   I need to be able to specify the number of characters I want to match, so something like "*" would not work since it matches without regard to the number of characters.   I need to specify how many characters are to be matched.

I can supply details as to why this is needed, but I won't bore you with the details unless you ask.

Thanks for any input.

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?

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

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!

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Is it FireFox, my NordVPN or PCMATIC that still lets me get thru to my normal websites as well as viewing other websites... OR is something that EPIC (the writers of the MYCHART) for FirstHealth.org and www.firsthealthmychart.org? Can anyone help? This is the ONLY website that will not work for 2 days so far.

I am a consultant and I have, typically, about 2-3 clients ongoing at any one time. These clients, inevitably, each assign me a Microsoft 365 userid. I also have my own personal Microsoft 365 userid.

Unfortunately, given Microsoft's fairly aggressive attempts to "capture" my attention, it has "remembered" each and every one of these accounts, and it sort of tries to log me in all the time with the wrong account into different clients' Office 365 online platforms. So I sometimes find myself sending external mails from the wrong accounts etc. It really is a mess, because then certain O365 "policies" from one account, prevent another account from logging in, for example, creating what I suspect is an almighty spaghetti bunfight of clashing Microsoft properties in my browser.

So I thought I'd assign each client their own container, and using the multi-account container addin, I though this would segregate the accounts, by setting it up automatically to open my different client O365 bookmarks in different colour-coded containers.

Unfortunately this not seem to keep Microsoft in check. It seems to be able to "see" other MS logins across containers, because a few hours ago I experienced a situation where in Client A's container, Microsoft decided that I should be logged out and logged back in with Client B, for some unknown reason, probably because I had logged in as Client B in another container tab. But this doesn't seem to happen all the time. I can't pin down exactly when it happens. Microsoft is basically able to see across my containers, it appears.

Is there any way to keep each Microsoft account where it belongs, namely strictly inside the container tab I have assigned each to? Facebook style? With a nice high unclimbable fence?

Hi! I'm having an issue where when I try to login to my Firefox account from the Firefox browser I get an error message telling me to enable cookies and local storage. Both of those things ARE enabled - I have the 'Standard' option selected for cookie management, and even clicked the shield that pops up on the login page and turned off enhanced protection. I have cleared the cookies and the cache and I have made sure the browser is updated and I continue to get the error message. At the moment I'm logged into my Firefox account from Vivaldi, which feels a little ridiculous. I've even tried turning my VPN on and off. Any suggestions?

The one killer feature Safari on a Mac has that keeps me from fully embracing Firefox is its integration with Messages for two factor security codes sent via text. In Safari, you don't have to jump over to Messages to copy and comeback to paste the code into the field. A box drops down under the field you can click on to autofill the code right there on the webpage.

Does Firefox have this ability somewhere or are there plans to add it soon? I seem to have read that Apple allows third party apps to add this integration since Big Sur.

When I log into my bank account and verify via a security code, it will ask me to save my Device Name. The problem is Firefox responds as "My Firefox 03/21/2023 01:34 PM" instead of my real computers name. Since the time always changes, even if I save it, it will never be unique. That means I will be asked to verify every time I log in. How can I make Firefox present my computer name instead of "My Firefox" followed by a date and time stream?

Hi,

I am running Thunderbird V102.9.0, 64 bit, Windows 10.

I have (5) IMAP accounts and under each one, a folder called "extensions^Junk" is there. I delete them in Thunderbird, compact folders; Delete them on the IMAP MagicMail web portal; I have renamed the folders; And every time I launch Thunderbird, they reappear. I can watch them appear a few seconds after launching Thunderbird. My email provider says they are not creating them. I do not have any extensions or add-ins installed.

Can anyone please provide a way to get rid of these folders?

I am hosting a test website on a test domain which does not support HTTPS. In Chrome/Chromium, it is possible to forcefully "trust" an insecure (HTTP) domain name and temporarily allow it access to webcam, microphone, etc. It does not appear to be possible in Firefox. I've searched the about:config and even tried editing the configuration files directly to try and whitelist my test domain. I am not able to setup SSL or TLS on the server it is hosted on, and I need to be able to access the page on other devices. It does seem to allowlist "localhost" since I guess it's trusted by default. If there is any way to temporarily or permanently allowlist an HTTP website, I will be able to use my website on Firefox instead of Chromium, which would be much preferred.
