I am using the currect version of FF, 71 or 70. something, not sure but I just updated. I use Whatsapp.web to chat when on my PC. I have no trouble connecting to Whatsapp.web using my Iphone and Firefox. However, EVERY time that FF closes, for a restart, or simply when I make a mistake and accidentally close the browser, the connection to Whatsapp.web is apparently broken. I say apparently because on the Iphone, it sontinues to list Windows 10 as an active device using the web app. When I used Microsoft Edge, once I scanned the QR code and connected, I would STAY connected, even overnight after I had shut down the PC. I am wondering if there are certain privacy or security settings which are preventing Whatsapp from staying connected when the FF browser closes. I also remember that a couple of years ago, when I was using FF in the 40s versions, maybe, Whatsapp also stayed connected. Just a note: the reason this is sort of a problem for me is that I am blind, and I use certain visual accessibility settings on Windows and FF that do not allow the Whatsapp QR to be scanned; so I have to change the entirevisual setting of my PC, scan the code, then restore the entire visual setting. Any ideas how to keep Whatsapp.web connected always, or at least as long as I don't end my Windows session?

Overnight it seems that Firefox is no longer reading my old saved logins and passwords. I have checked to see that the logins.json and key4.db files are present, but the new Lockwise page shows nothing. When I look at the about:protections page, it shows that I still have 400+ logins and passwords protected. I tried to make a new profile and import backup data and Firefox still does not see the saved logins and passwords in the new profile. Any ideas on what is causing this behavior? I have so many accounts, and would like to get this functionality working again.

Hi,

For a number of months now my Thunderbird installation has been playing up. I have used Thunderbird without issue for several years, however now, whenever it downloads emails, any content (other than simple text) is automatically deleted out of it. For a split second, as the email is being retrieved, I can see all (graphical) content, however less than a second later, it all disappears, and an empty box where the image/link used to be remains in its place. I have read about Thunderbirds "protect your privacy" and content security, but contrary to the instructions therein, there is no means for me to 1. Re-enable content (there is no blue preferences bar present at any time in the email application) 2. Such preferences anywhere in the settings that I can find.

This is extremely frustrating. I left it for a while hoping that an eventual Thunderbird software update would resolve the issue, but it hasn't. how do I go about restoring the content of these emails? Note I realize that security is important, however we are talking about known good companies that I regularly deal with, and their content is stripped out with no means for me to disable or opt out of this infuriating bug/feature.

I am running Ubuntu 18.04 and the latest version of Thunderbird (everything on my machine is kept 100% up to date)

Thank you

For the last week or so I've been having an intermittent problem when I log into my AMEX screen. The saved password does not always show up. I would normally left click the password field and the password would show, however for the last week or so I'm having to right click to get the "fill password" prompt. I clean cookies and cache regularly and I even deleted the saved AMEX cookie(s) and resaved them again. Sometimes it works as it should other times it does not as described above. I've not seen this problem with other web sites. The usually left click to populate the password field. No problems with the user name field. That populates automatically. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.

I was upgraded to the latest version and since then I can not retrieve ANY of my old/current passwords. I have to log in each password to use sites and when I try to look at the LOCKWISE page it is empty. I did not have a master password set prior to this upgrade so when I tried to change to a new password it does not allow me to change it.

WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?

I know the passwords are there but why is Firefox doing this?
