Greetings from North-East of France, since a few weeks ago I'm seeing a (sort of) pop-up window suggesting to login with a Google account (see the screenshot attached). I've done some internet search to find out how to get rid of it, but the only suggestion I get is to modify an option in a Google account. However, I do not have a Google account! How to get rid of this disturbing pop-up? I already use Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin, yet Google passes through them! Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.

I have unsubscribed from all newsletter after receiving the first email but days later I'm still getting emails from Firefox (e.g. Superpower #4: See if your info has been leaked).

This is an incredibly bad user experience and to my knowledge illegal in the EU.

I'm probably still within that journey but the journey should terminate the moment I clicked unsubscribed.

I do not have a G account. For work related purposes I have to utilize websites that bombard me with Sign in w Google. No settings within FF I found can stop this onslaught. Same goes for Ad Block Plus and a few others since disabled and deleted. No useful information on G's forum website. Firefox, I was under the impression your about user safety & security? Why O Why do I get this garbage from G daily in your browser 105.3 on Win 10 home without a way to disable it?

My thunderbird configuration uses POP to download email onto my local computer. I recenly became aware that evrytime I read an email I have received from Constant Contact, Constant contact is being sent and report of my access that email. That is not refering to when the email is downloaded. After I download the message, Constant Contact is notified I have open the email. This happens just by opening the email, no links in the email have been clicked. I have the sending of return receipts turned off, but this seems like something different than a return receipt.

I suspect this is related to some of the tags I see in the email: X-Campaign-Activity-ID, X-Channel-ID, X-Feedback-ID, etc.

I am sure the marketing people on the other end love this, but to me it is an invasion of my privacy. Is there a way to prevent this in Thunderbird? It seems to me to be a no-brainer that email users should be able to prevent such an intrusion into their privacy. Am I wrong on that?

I have just upgraded from 68.12 to 78.2.2. I used Enigmail but I have migrated to the built-in openPGP. Everything runs as it should.

But it seems that my passphrase has been saved. In the old Enigmail, it used to ask for the passphrase regularly, which I found safer.

So in Thunderbird 78.2.2, is there a way to avoid the saving of the passphrase, or to define how long the passphrase should be saved (e.g. 15 min, session...)? If not, should I then use a master password to protect it? I cannot find the passphrase under saved passwords, so I am not sure where it is stored and therefore if the master password would protect the passphrase.

Thank you!

i have installed Thb for a company with 5 members. I am the one who takes care of thb, updates etc. Now, users can go the settings, and make the email account passwords visible.

How can I change settings that users can NOT make the email passwords visible for them?

If this is not possible, can I make the suggestion here, to make an extra possibilty for this?

Thank you.

Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

Please can someone tell me why is there such a long delay between opening firefox and the master password prompt?

Also if anyone knows if there is some way to either speed up the master password prompt so that it opens instantly on opening firefox or prevent it from opening until a password box is present on the webpage.

The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Under EXCEPTIONS I had to ALLOW certain websites. Then I decided to experiment and see what ALLOWED for SESSION really does.

Neither the entries for websites I allowed for a session were deleted from the list of exceptions, nor the cookies saved by these websites were deleted even when I closed the browser.

I do not see the difference in terms of what happens between selecting Allow vs. Allow for session.

Could someone who knows please explain or point me to the place that explains the difference and how this works?

Thanks.

Recently I was required to change my password for my att.net account (sbcglobal.net email). After that I cannot receive emails from that account. Thunderbird is able to retrieve emails from my google email, but not the att.net account. I keep receiving the attached message.

I have tried resetting the password under "Saved Passwords" without success. I have verified using the same incoming and outgoing server as before. Also tried going back to att.net and changing the password back to the original without success. When I contacted ATT they seemed to indicate that the server settings were correct. I even tried to remove the account and entering it again in Thunderbird.

There is a lot of useful information available that users have submitted, however with my limited understanding the suggestions haven't solved the problem. It seems that the problem is with the account settings within Thunderbird, but can't seem to find it. Any help would be appreciated.

I selected the new HTTPS-Only mode in Firefox 83.0, and some URLs are being blocked, followed by the "Secure Connection Not Available" message.

Please let me know what this means, or whether this is a bug to be worked out. Thanks in advance.

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.
