Starting on the 17th, two of my accounts suddenly said (see image) "server error try again later." However I have multiple Yahoo accounts, all Prodigy.net, from the old days, and the only two that don't work, are the ones that I signed in using the new AT&T / Yahoo.

The accounts that have never been signed in online, work fine and download my POP mail from Yahoo. There's nowhere in Thunderbird (that I see, I might be missing the how to) for me to add OAUTH (see image)

I tried to find Yahoo support which is absurd. They offer pay subscription for support? All the pages for online yahoo mail are now "Currently from AT&T Yahoo mail and any support link, takes me to AT&T where they ask questions, like what's your AT&T account, what's you AT&T phone number, and I have neither any longer. Then the nearly impossible to understand person, who barely speaks English says, delete your account. What? I've had this account for 17 or more years. It's my main contact. Then I explain for the 30th time, I can get my mail online, but not on my phone or my desktop. She says, wait 24hours... Wait 24 hours for what? In case something changes. But we did nothing why would it change? Wait 24 hours. But I've been waiting for three days.

Yes I have cookies enabled. As far as I can see, I changed nothing, all accounts have identical settings.

It seems like Thunderbird and the users have a better idea of what's going on, than the provider. :-) I read and read, and I still don't understand the oauth and I can't set it for inbound.att.net so I'm missing something?

But odd that of six accounts, only two stopped working on the 17th, the others I get my pop mail just fine. I suspect that somehow, logging in to the new AT&T changed something and now my two used accounts, not the useless ones, don't work. Can You Help Please?

https://i.postimg.cc/0QF9P6zV/yahoo-mail-error.jpg

Is this just me or are there a flurry of people hitting this Server Error message?

Thanks for any ideas or help.

Hi, I find that I'm unable to access stored e-mail passwords in Thunderbird. I follow all the instructions and a drop box then asks for a username and Password. I have never set either a username for Thunderbird or password. The only other option is a pin that that directs to e-mail addresses that have not existed for 4 years.

Hello,

I would like to know why all of a sudden video clips, some web sites and my online banking I get "did not connect" Security Issues, or expired certificates. I don't have these issues on any of my other browsers. I am inclined to believe they don't exist. I can log into my online banking but the page with my account data is blank.

Как насчёт добавления возможности пополнять список блокируемых трекеров и фингерпринтов своими списками? Или-же такая возможность есть? Тут скорее просьба к mozilla, добавьте это пожалуйста. Мне нравится статистика сбора трекеров, и я считаю её полезной. При включении privacy possum/badger статистика с них не будет собираться, то-есть вся эта панель состояния защиты становится бесполезной, ибо количество трекеров в списках этих расширений больше раза в два. Хотелось-бы получить большую безопасность и удобность, особенно если в теории это является одной из целей нынешнего Firefox, и если это возможно.

I have been unable to saved passwords from Firefox for android for several months. I see them on my laptop. I followed the recommendation to download Lockwise for android and it initially worked but when I closed and went back in my unlock pattern isn't visible to unlock lockwise. My screen flickers as if trying, but something is blocking it. So now I can't even use auto fill. I suspect that google has something to do with it because they been chasing after me to store passwords with them. Your help document said I might have troubles with incorrectly migrated password files(from file .3 to file.4) Additionally, I fear I've compounded the problem by downloading Lockwise which I am unable to uninstall. For the Lockwise issue, your help comments suggest it might be an issue with the actual phone security. For the love of me, I can't find a place where I can force the phone to obey me. Lol Any suggestions? Ps. Die-hard Mozilla user from the beginning, which seems like decades ago! Please help me with explicit instructions to fix this. It will break my heart to lose a browser I've watched grow up into a fine young browserman/woman.

Hello,

Firefox is blocking some website because it says it's not secure (see picture). I don't give a .... So I want to access the website anyways. However, there is NO way to do that, NONE. I've searched everywhere. So I can only rely on you guys. How can I force the connection or bypass the F security, or get rid of it, or something... anything.

Here is a historic of my tests : My issue is simple. 2 days ago I could surf on some website completely fine. Then all of a sudden half my website get SO CALLED "The connection has timed out".

- Test server : So I go on the usual website-server-is-down to test if the server is down. The website itself is perfectly fine according to 5 testing website. - Test server 2 : Then I go through a "browser inside browser" website to test it again (dunno how it's called). I can access the main page then navigate fine on all test-browser. The website is therefore fine. - "Not secure" : Despite the viciously misleading message saying "connection timed out" that makes you believe the website is down and gone, it is actually fine, as proven above. It's just for some god unknown reason Firefox decided to block it, without telling you it's actually blocking it (nice move!). - No button : I searched but could not find a way to either force the connection or create security exception. I tried disabling all security in "privacy" tab in the option, no deal. - Certificate : I also went to try and add the website as an exception in the certificate list, but Firefox pretends it cannot connect to the website, therefore you cannot add the certificate. - Security.enterprise : I have removed the access from Avast to Firefox allowing me to unlock security.enterprise_roots.enabled. Once I had it unlocked, I tried either True or False, but no deal (including reboots comp & browser) - I spent 4 hours searching solutions on the web, but couldn't fin any. Is Firefox actively preventing me for surfing the web as I like... ?

In the end, I still cannot access this website. And I wanna say to Mozilla : It's my own liberty if I want to go and shoot myself in the foot by visiting a so-called "unsecured website". I should be able to do so if I want to...

Anyway, if any gosu out there has the skill, please help ? ^^; Thanks

Dear Mozilla Support, I am contacting you because I would like to have clarifications regarding the following notification (that I found at the link: https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard):

1 Email address being monitored

Maybe I misunderstand the sentence, so I don't know whether to interpret it positively or negatively.

In other words: is Firefox monitoring my Email account, to protect it, or else has it been detected that my Email account is being monitored by third parties? If the second hypothesis is correct: how do I know who is checking my email account?

I thank you in advance.

With best regards

Latest update has changed the addressee format whereby all recipients are now either on the TO: line or BCC: or CC: lines as entered by the sender. Before you could enter a number of recipients on lines that stacked up vertically as recipients were added. Then by using a pull down in the left margin of each line change the recipient status to CC: or BCC:. Changing all recipients to BCC would provide for email address masking of the recipients. Now a recipient is required on the TO: line thereby unmasking his address. Putting the sender's address on the TO: line and then placing all recipients on the BCC: line is a workaround, but not as obvious a solution as was the earlier format. So why change something that wasn't broke?
