What's the issue here, if anybody could help I'd be much obliged. Thank you.

For example: Google DNS 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4 or, Open DNS 208.67.222.222 · 208.67.220.220

Enabling DNS over HTTPS dose not give me FULL control over this. I should be able to put a DNS IP address in there like in Internet Explore.

The Firefox desktop browser is the only one that give me this error Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE I am on a MAC OS using latest version of Mozilla Firefox desktop browser: 82.0.1 (64-bit) Incognito mode, cleared everything, reinstalled the browser and still got the same error. Talked with GoDaddy support and they told me everything is ok on their side. What is going on? Why: Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox Mobile (iOS) and so on have no problem loading my pages, but Firefox desktop has?

I looked on my GoDaddy hosting cPanel and the SSL are correctly generated and valid, so I don't understand what is going on with this browser.

Thank you! PS - If this is already answered, please point me to the correct reply.

Three days ago, Thunderbird started to give me a "Sending of password for user xxx.xxx@gmail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.gmail.com responded: Username and password not accepted.

I checked that it was accurate in the Saved Passwords panel and it is. I've entered it manually and still get the error message.

When I log onto Google from any browser with this account, it accepts the password. I can then access my gmail account with no trouble. My Firefox password manager shows the same password that is rejected by TB. My Gmail Android app on my smartphone and tablet also accept my logons with the same password. Only Thunderbird doesn't. I've tried deleting my pop.gmail.com login entry and re-creating it under the xxx.xxx@gmail.com account.

I had a Google Security warning 3 days ago, so suspect somebody might have hacked the account, changed the password, but didn't save his new password anywhere, so I have no idea what new password he might have changed it to. I am going to try changing my entire Google password and see if this will allow me to reset the TB password, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I have several other gmail accounts on Thunderbird and all of my accounts use the same passwords set for their accounts.google.com under the separate gmail addresses. How do I find out what to do to fix it?

I have been using Thunderbird for several years for my GMail accounts, and have always preferred to download my messages using the POP and SMTP protocols, rather than use the IMAP protocol which leaves them all on the web. Google now inform me that "To help keep your account secure, Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0. What do you need to do? Email software, like Outlook 2016 or earlier, has less secure access to your Gmail. Switch to Office 365, Outlook 2019 or newer, or any other email software where you can sign in using Sign in with Google." These changes are due to take effect from May 30th. How can I prepare for them and still use the POP and SMTP protocols after that date? Is OAuth 2.0 appropriate?

Firefox was updated to v82.0.2 yesterday, and since then I'm getting this error using Firefox to connect to my NetGear ReadyNAS admin page, which uses the original self-signed certificate. Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to anemone. Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation. This is the error:

Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.

Learn more…

It doesn't even display the certificate or give me the option to "Continue anyway". I have to use Chrome to connect, which make me even more unhappy! With the previous version of FF, I could log into the admin page. I should have the option to accept that the connection isn't trusted, and continue to work. This NAS is in my home network behind a router and admin access is password controlled. That's safe enough for my purposes.

Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

Hi, since today I've been unable to connect to reCAPTCHA. At first the reCAPTCHA boxes didn't show up at all and Firefox prevented me from connecting with Google because of an error with the certificate. I was able to fix that by allowing Firefox to trust root authorities (solution #6 on this list: https://sectigostore.com/page/fix-the-warning-potential-security-risk-ahead-error-in-firefox/ )

While the reCAPTCHA boxes are showing up again, I still can't connect with it. When checking the box, it starts loading for a while and I get an error message saying that there's no contact with reCAPTCHA and that I should check my connection and try again. I included a screenshot.

I went to topics of people who had the same problem and tried everything. Disabling protection against tracking, disabling Adblock, starting Firefox in safe mode, refreshing Firefox, loading another Firefox profile, restarting Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, restarting my pc. I'm desperate.

I'm only having this problem in Firefox, not in any other browser.

I tried to visit a website on a private network.

Firefox threw up a security warning about how the web page uses TLSv1.0.

I clicked on the "Enable TLS v1.0" button because I wanted to temporarily view the web page, so that I can look at the TLS certificate to debug an unrelated issue about the cert chain on this site.

Now I want to go back to the default settings, where Firefox blocks TLSv1.0.

How do I do that?

In about:config I looked at security.tls.version.min but it's still on the original value of 3. Yet Firefox is still letting me view that particular page over TLSv1.0 without the security warning.
