Gmail authentication fails unless I use debug mode, even when I've cleaned out addons etc.

Gmail then asks for permissions via Thunderbird menu and (sometimes) via 2F text to phone. I always grant these but authentication will always fail unless I start in debug mode.

Note: this is IMAP access.

Also, I read that master password is broken. Is this a related bug?

Thanks in advance.

Remote content not working for one sender in 115.7.0 64bit; Win 11 latest everything

I have been a TB user for many years. In the past year or so, emails from one sender don't show remote content while all other emails do. If I recall correctly, this wasn't a problem in the early part of 2023 but I'm not sure. I have done the following: checked allow remote content for all emails; explicitly allowed remote content from the URLs of the sender; restarted TB and my PC from a cold start after making changes; used the HTML of the emails to locate the document on the sender's server so I know it's there. I am at a loss as to what to do now. These emails also contain a link that allows the same graphic to be displayed on a browser and that works. I receive a fairly large number of emails daily so I have a lot of filters and the emails missing content have been moved to their appropriate folder by the filtering (only one folder is involved for these emails). These emails are sent by the community where I live which does not have any technical support office so I have no success trying to get someone to help me. I do think it's their problem but I don't know how to prove that. Can anyone suggest something that I could try? Are there any TB flags that might have been set somewhere that are preventing the remote content from displaying? I have included images of the email (2 pages) and the HTML (3 pages). I would be very happy to try just about anything to get this to work or to prove the sender needs to fix something.

TB was working fine, but now I can no longer send email. I get a popup window with this:

Unable to connect

An error occurred during a connection to localhost.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Thunderbird is permitted to access the web.

The service (Comcast) is up & working. I've double-checked the password. I've tried disabling my firewall.

How do I figure out what is now causing the problem?

Unwanted "Manage Password" suggestions in Special:UserRights on MediaWiki sites

Hi everyone,

I'm encountering an issue specifically on MediaWiki sites, like this one, where the "Special:UserRights" page behaves strangely. Whenever I try to type in the input area, the browser suggests "Manage Password" even though it's not a relevant action on this page.

I'm using Firefox 123.00 and this happens on both my Linux (Ubuntu 22.04) and Windows 11 OS. I don't have any password manager extensions installed.

While this might seem like a minor inconvenience, it's quite disruptive to the workflow when managing user rights on MediaWiki sites.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there a known solution or workaround to prevent the "Manage Password" suggestion from appearing on the "Special:UserRights" page?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have several profiles for logging into HMRC's Government Gateway to access my HMRC services. I can log in with my Username and Password but when I enter the Access Code (sent to my mobile) the website goes back to the login page, it won't let me in. If I do the same on Microsoft Edge, there is no issue and I can login without any problems. I tried the 'Forget about this website' fix and also cleared the cache in Firefox. I will not delete all my cookies as they are vital for all my access to financial and government website access. Some profiles (different Username) will let me in (for certain Government Services) but others won't. It is not an issue with HMRC as Microsoft Edge seems to work. Can anyone provide a solution to this issue or have also experienced this issue? Thanks. René

Let's say I googled "rectal cancer" on a daily basis 6 months ago. I had quite a challenging time, but thankfully that problem got sorted and I'm ready to put it all behind me.

Problem: I don't want "rectal cancer" showing up in my search suggestions ever again.

I can go to the "History" panel and search for "rectal cancer" to find all the unwanted history entries BUTT I can't delete any of them. The history panel doesn't allow searching and deleting at the same time. So the only option I have is to clear my entire history, or scroll down my history manually for hours to find all the entries I want to remove.

Isn't this almost unbelievably stupid?

My office is running Thunderbird 115. I recently changed the password. This seemed to work OK. But on restarting TB I found the new password had not been stored. The Password Manager display is empty, so I cannot edit anything, nor can I insert a new entry into the Manager. I want to store the current password. How do I do this?

Trying to forward an e-mail from the UK National Health Service results in message:

Sending of the message failed. An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: Message detected as spam. [1709223430-338018].. Please check the message and try again.

How do I overcome what is obviously incorrect feedback? My TB mail client and server did not detect anything during receipt. There do not appear to be any client-based TB detection tools where I can identify suspect content or the particular server.

Thunderbird 115.8.0 can't find GPGME from Gpg4win 4.3.0

Hi,

My PGP subkeys are on a Smartcard (Yubikey).

I'm running Thunderbird 115.8.0 (64-bit) on Windows 11 Enterprise (23H2; 22631.3235) with Gpg4win-4.3.0.

I configured an external key ID per Thunderbird:OpenPGP:Smartcards#Allow_the_use_of_external_GnuPG. I've imported my public key into Thunderbird's key manager.

However, when I try to send a digitally signed message, sending fails and the console in Browser Toolbox says "Error: invalid configuration, request to use external GnuPG key, but GPGME isn't working".

The GPGME shared library is installed at path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gpg4win\bin_64\libgpgme-11.dll" and "C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuPG\bin\libgpgme-11.dll". PATH contains "C:\Program Files (x86)\Gpg4win\..\GnuPG\bin".

Is there something I'm doing wrong?
