I have received a "phish"ing message spoofed from one my own (forwarding) email addresses. It asks to click on a link at "Sendgrid.net", which is surely a scam. I created a message filter to catch the text "Sendgrid.net" in the BODY and send it to spam folder but it does not work. I have to conclude that the link is not in the BODY of the message.

Is it possible to make this filter? (The message source is attached)

WHY? Because the permission was NOT CLEAR nor did it elucidate what exactly does the Add-On have of MY data.

Is "My DATA" the HTML portion? The JavaScript? The URLBOX? Data store? WHAT EXACTLY is "MY DATA"?

I have been using Firefox for a while. And then I had a different customer laptop which did not have one and I could not install anything. So I used Chrome. Now with a new laptop when I try to import the settings into Firefox, there are multiple duplicate entries found.

Is there an automated way to run through the same and clean it up?

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

why cannot we permanently get rid of the datareporting folder that is created in the profiles folder? It has been stated before that "no data is collected" yada yada yada when the particular options are set, and they are, yet the folder still reappears. I so not allow tab restore, all privacy settings are set to prevent this that i can find; changed in about:config toolkit.telemetry.unified to false toolkit.telemetry.enabled to false datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled to false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled to false user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.unified", false);

Stop it please. It slows down page loads and if, IF, no data is collected, why create it???

Hi, so I'm trying to import a public PGP key someone sent me via e-mail. It's in .asc format. In theory Thunderbird should recognise it in the e-mail and import it automatically. This is not happening. Opening the PGP Key Manager doesn't help either as the option to import keys is missing. See screenshots attached. Is this a bug? Anyone else have the same problem? Any ideas on how to solve it? Thanks! Maak

My institution uses Office 365 (Exchange) (O365) for email. It will soon be implementing Duo 2-factor authentication (2FA). I am using TB with the Exquilla add-on, which works perfectly on the current system. I use TB only for email (not calendar, etc.).

I would like to know exactly how to implement 2FA in my current O365 TB account, and how it will work afterwards. Also, perhaps what the most common glitches are for this change and how to address them.

At the risk of being ridiculed.... I am using TB 60.9.1. I presume that it will not trigger the Duo 2FA screen (or will it?). I am happy to upgrade TB to at least v68 to get the OAuth2 option in Account Settings, but after doing so, how exactly will it work? Will I need to do the 2FA thing every time TB runs, every time my browser opens, etc? Are there any particular issues with O365 using TB 2FA?

I am trying to avoid even a temporary interruption in email access via TB since the O365 web Outlook interface is so intolerable....

Thank you for your patience and any help.

Thunderbird is Now Broken or How to Disable the Updater Message?

I keep getting a message to update Mozilla Thunderbird; and yet if I do, Thunderbird totally breaks. I don't dare update it and would like it to stop popping up the message. Can I do that?

How does it break?

When I update, it no longer allows me to use the "self-signed certificate" for MY OWN SERVER! I have tried every single possible way of manually installing the certificate; but it will not allow it. 68.8 allows it just fine with a message that pops up basically saying "do you really trust so and so is so and so" [with because it is my own server, that is asking, "do you trust that you are yourself?" And, yes, I do trust that I am myself, so I click permanently accept the certificate; and it just works. Newer versions stopped working that way; at one point (I believe it was 68.10 or 68.11) I was still able to manually install the certificate; but even that stopped working.

To put for a very apt analogy. Let us say that Thunderbird is a bank for e-mail; it stores e-mail messages; and conducts transactions (deposits/downloads, withdrawals/server deletions, and check processing/connections to servers) with the account owner and those the account owner works with.

A self-signed certificate is literally the same as a person signing their own check and giving it to someone else. The bank is SUPPOSED to process that check; the drawing bank should validate the signature for sure, but the bank that the check is depositing in should have no say. [Thus I have no problem with a warning popping up saying -- do you validate this signature.]

But, can you imagine one day taking your paycheck to the bank and the bank saying "no we will not accept paychecks that aren't notarized." What is the process of notarizing a signature? It is having a third party (a trusted licensed notary public) verify that the person signing (whatever--in this case a bank check) is actually the person they say they are. That is literally what having a third party trusted root certificate signature and chain is doing; it is notarizing the signature on the security certificate.

While that may make sense for someone conducing business with someone that they do not know. It makes no sense for an employer to have to notarize the paychecks for his employees; especially when that is to the tune of several hundred dollars per year. Employees already know who their employer is; and already have established that trust.

Again, when I am providing e-mail only to employees on my company server; there is no reason at all that Thunderbird (which has nothing to do with my business; is simply only the bank account for e-mail transactions) should require me to pay extra money to establish trust that their employer is really their employer.

I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?

Three days ago, Thunderbird started to give me a "Sending of password for user xxx.xxx@gmail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.

I checked that it was accurate in the Saved Passwords panel and it is. I've entered it manually and still get the error message.

When I log onto Google from any browser with this account, it accepts the password. I can then access my gmail account with no trouble. My Firefox password manager shows the same password that is rejected by TB. My Gmail Android app on my smartphone and tablet also accept my logons with the same password. Only Thunderbird doesn't. I've tried deleting my pop.gmail.com login entry and re-creating it under the xxx.xxx@gmail.com account.

I had a Google Security warning 3 days ago, so suspect somebody might have hacked the account, changed the password, but didn't save his new password anywhere, so I have no idea what new password he might have changed it to. I am going to try changing my entire Google password and see if this will allow me to reset the TB password, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I have several other gmail accounts on Thunderbird and all of my accounts use the same passwords set for their accounts.google.com under the separate gmail addresses. How do I find out what to do to fix it?

This is about setting up secure email movement using Thunderbird. My ISP (a small outfit in Canada I choose to support) suggests using SSL-POP (Secure POP3) and SSMTP (Secure SMTP) for better security, yet I don't find these options in the latest version of Thunderbird. At the same time, Thunderbird is warning me of the insecurity of EACH of the 2 options it offers - standard POP3 and IMAP. I use one device for email, live in and work from a rural area and don't always have good or any connectivity (by personal preference!) so IMAP is not my choice. Can someone tell me if TB offers SSL-POP? Or...? I have had real problems over the past couple of years with breaches of security, account breaches, identity theft, etc. and I do need a more secure option than the standard. At the same time I want to use an open source email client. I would be appreciative of any advice or wisdom here. Thanks!
