I have used Firefox and Thunderbird for several years but now I am unable to use Yahoo because of ?Thunderbird being unsecure? So anyway I can't get signed in anymore. I have read everything I can find on the web sites about how to log in but as I read and follow directions I always get to a critical spot where a function/icon/option/ is not available to me. So I'm dead in the water again. I am using Firefox version 83 and Thunderbird version 78, the latest downloads and Windows 10. I guess I'm not very smart on the computer but my question is 'can anybody give me precise instructions how to comply with the Yahoo security snafu? Right now I am using Yahoo until I can find out something about Thunderbird and I hate Yahoo. Secondly is Mozilla fixing the Thunderbird program so it will seamlessly log in?

Any help will be appreciated. My email address is: gaylon.smith@sbcglobal.net

Hello. I have been using Thunderbird on my Windows 8 pc for many years. Today, Thunderbird (TB) was acting screwy.

After launching TB, I kept getting multiple pop-up windows asking me to sign into Yahoo. As far as I know, I have no Yahoo account. While this was going on, I was unable to send any emails with TB. Every time I tried, a pop-up window would ask me to sign into my Yahoo account (which doesn't exist as far as I know).

In order to try and resolve this problem, I entered my email address and ISP log-in in the Yahoo pop-up window. I stopped getting pop-ups asking me to sign into Yahoo, and I was now able to use TB and send emails.

I then received one email message from Yahoo telling me "Your Yahoo account [my email address] was used to sign in to a new third party application on thunderbird." I don't understand this: 1) afaik, I have no Yahoo account; 2) I don't know what is meant by "a new third party application".

The email went on: "If this wasn’t you, please use this link to revoke third party access to your account, and change your password. You can also revoke access to thunderbird by going to yahoo.com and navigating to the Recent Activity tab under Account Info."

So now I am even more confused. Is my email account hacked? I do not want unknown third parties to access my email account.

My questions: 1) Why is Yahoo involved with my use of TB? 2) Why does Yahoo seem to think I have a Yahoo account, when I don't think I have one? 3) Has my email on TB been hacked? Do I need to change my password? 4) What does it mean that my "Yahoo account [my email address] was used to sign in to a new third party application on thunderbird." What is a "third party application on TB"?

If anyone can explain this to me, I appreciate it. I guess the good news is TB now appears to work normally and I can use it to send emails, and I no longer get pop-up windows telling me to sign into Yahoo.

Thx. jmp

Trying to access https://www.locast.org. but my location is blocked.

I want to add\change\edit a permission for the above website to allow.

I have previously blocked requests for my location in Permissions => Location => Settings. I have now unchecked this. I have deleted the relevant cookies using the sites shield menu. I am unable to get the site to prompt me to allow location nor can I manually add the site to the in Permissions => Location => Settings.

I expect this to be in about:config but no idea where.

How can I correct this?

Hello,

Latest Firefox 83 (tested with 84+ as well) running on Windows 10 1709.

Access to the Internet is allowed through the proxy (Squid) and proxy settings are distributed via pac file. There are no issues accessing the Internet.

We host our local web server which is allowed to be accessed directly without proxying and it's excluded in the pac file -- this works fine too.

The problem is that in one of the pages of our local website, there are several YouTube videos embedded using iframes and they can't be displayed. Instead, we see:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly" (Screen1.png and Screen2.png)

There are no issues displaying videos using Chrome/Chromium, Internet Explorer or Opera.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
