A similar 'not secure' warning had been appearing in Edge; clearing the cache eliminated the warning. Clearing the Firefox cache has not helped, nor has resetting. No warning has ever appeared in Chrome.

Windows 10. Firefox 102.0 (64-bit).

Any suggestions?

Update: I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox. The warning no longer appears.

Under Privacy and Security I have Firefox set to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' with no exceptions listed.

When I close and reopen Firefox, the cookies are correctly deleted, but the cache is not. I have to manually go into this setting to delete them. This also happens if I go to the menu bar setting of 'history/clear recent history'.

I want to keep my history of where I've been, but clear clear cookies and the cache every time close.

This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request for a browser that bills itself as being privacy oriented, but I don't see how to do this. Doing banking, I have to manually go into Privacy each time to get this done to clear the site.

From looking at previous answers to this question it seems the current way Firefox is designed this is "not a bug, but a feature".

Using Firefox 99.0 on a 2017 Imac.

When I start a private window on FireFox, that same private window still has all the browsing history attached to my "normal" FireFox windows.

Ideally, I'd like to start Private Mode and have FireFox start from "zero": No access to past browsing data.

Is there a setting that allows for this?

I continually get prompted to enter my password (saved on Thunderbird). When I do enter it, I get the exact same prompt. The work around that is successful 80% of the time is to log into https://accounts.google.com/signin/v2/identifier?passive=1209600&continue=https%3A%2F%2Faccounts.google.com%2FDisplayUnlockCaptcha&followup=https%3A%2F%2Faccounts.google.com%2FDisplayUnlockCaptcha&flowName=GlifWebSignIn&flowEntry=ServiceLogin -- which allows me to unblock Thunderbird. When that doesn't work, I have to open my browser and log directly into gmail, using the same password. The peculiar part is that, throughout all this, I seem to be receiving e-mails normally. This only happens on sending (or when my VPN is engaged, but that's a whole 'nuther ball of dung). The other strange bit is after it starts working, it works fine for a few days, sometimes weeks, then I have to go through all this again, so I know my settings are right.

Hi

I've tried to search for a solution but couldn't find anything. I'm using Thunderbird 91.9.1 on Linux (Ubuntu), however I've tried this also on Windows 10 and exact same problem. I'm using the owl plugin to integrate to Microsoft O365 - that part works just fine. My problem is I've imported a gpg key and when I try to decrypt emails, the lower left bar just says "Loading message" but nothing happens - no error messages or nothing.

I can decrypt the same message using the same key with GnuPG on the command line, so nothing wrong with the key. I've also tried using an external key instead on importing directly into Thunderbird - same result. Is there any logging I can enable that would help me troubleshoot this, google didn't give me any good answers?

Grateful for any ideas. Regards Christian

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.


When clicking advanced button there is no way to proceed:

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Please help me! Last week, was the victim of a computer scam. I called the 888# pop-up on screen. Looked so real w/MS logo and MS defender logo. I stupidly gave my IP address, name, cellphone #, (which I reported to MS fraud division and the FBI). (I installed a VPN, after the fact.) I can't believe I was so taken in by this guy.

  I went to my bank in person and gave them my new email address.  I tried to log in to my online banking today. Message "Secure Connection Failed. You are not securely connection to this site.Your connection to this site is not private. Information you submit could be viewed by others (like passwords, messages, credit cards, etc.) "
Now, I'm terrified that this scammer has access to my computer.
I'm afraid to access my online banking. He may even have access to my other online accounts, such as my cable, retail stores, etc. where I changed my email addresses and passwords.
Even if I can get "securely connected" how do I know I'm safe from these guys who have my IP address?
 What can I do?  Can someone please help me? Or make a suggestion as to where I can go to resolve this (if possible?
 Thank you so much.

I recently returned from vacation and after being gone two weeks I noticed the three Gmail accounts that I use Thunderbird to access were missing some of the inline graphics that I could see if I went to Gmail directly. At login I am receiving a Secure Connection Failed message each time I get into Thunderbird. It seems I'm getting all my email, just not some of the inline graphics on individual emails. I've received messages from Mozilla saying an update to Thunderbird was available however, when I click update, I receive the Secure Connection Failed message again. Today I physically downloaded the most current version of Thunderbird (102.0 64 bit) but after the install, nothing relating to the inline graphics had changed. Based on an article that I saw under Mozilla Support - Thunderbird ("Automatic Conversion of Google mail accounts to OAuth 2.0 Authentication") I also checked some of my settings. I verified that all three of my Gmail accounts that I use Thunderbird to access utilized OAuth2. The field Accept cookies from sites is checked. The javascript.allow.mailnews is set to "true". In Saved Passwords I see oauth entries for each username in the form of oauth://accounts.google.com(https://mail.google.com/ …).

If anybody could provide some assistance, I sure would appreciate it. Thanks

My TB profile is on my home NAS, which has worked fine until I installed TB 102 (64-bit). Now when I enter my account password and check the Save Password box, login to the account fails and the password is not saved. I can access my accounts if I don't check the Save Password box.

I've tried deleting the key4.db and cert9.db files. While they are recreated, it doesn't fix the problem. There are no file called "logins*" in the profile directory, which I've seen mentioned in previous discussions of this type of problem.

I used Sysinternals PROCMON to try and get some idea what's going on; i.e., what files are referenced when saving passwords. I did notice repeated attempts to read key4.db at offset 24 , length 16 which always failed with NETWORK_ERROR. Other accesses to key4.db succeeded.

I have programming experience and am willing to use the Debugger under Developer Tools. I just have no idea what to look for.

Thnk you for any suggestions you can provide.
