Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

Can sent from one account but not another with the same SMTP

Hi all;

I'm running Thunderbird 78.6.0 (32-bit), Windows 10.

I have two accounts on a domain, call them primary@domain.com and secondary@domain.com. This domain does not have an SMTP server.

I have a third account on a commercial service - Mailbox.org - call it account@mailbox.org.

In the Outgoing SMTP server section of Account Settings, I've set up the Mailbox.org SMTP as the server, with the account@mailbox.org login settings.

Both account primary@domain.com and secondary@domain.com have "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" pointing to that default "Mailbox.org (SMTP)"

When I send as account@mailbox.org, it sents without problem.

When I send as user primary@domain.com, it sends without problem.

When I send as user secondary@domain.com, it fails with "<secondary@domain.com> Sender address rejected".

The thing is, all three point to the same SMTP server, with the same SMTP credentials. I've deleted the password and reset it, with no difference.

For some reason, when using primary@domain, the SMTP server uses the stored account@mailbox.org settings, as it should. But when using secondary@domain, somehow the SMTP server is ignoring those credentials. I don't see any configuration differences between primary and secondary.

In Thunderbird, account primary@domain.com has the outgoing SMTP server configured to use the account@mailbox.org account's credentials. I can't see how primary and secondary are any different, other than one works, and the other doesn't.

I've duplicated the SMTP settings to an SMTP2 server, with the same result. The primary can always send, but the secondary cannot.

This is probably something simple, and some setting somewhere, but I can't find it.

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

I would very much like to adjust the text zoom of my (updated current firefox) browser (to 170%) and the normal zoom to something around 130-150%. That would allow me to read from distance and use the whole screen. However, firefox only allows "text-only" zoom OR "whole site" zoom (in "about:preferences"). Is there an addon or an "about:config" setting where I could globally adjust text zoom and website zoom to distinct values at once (without setting "website zoom" to 100% for example, when adjusting "text-only")

I would greatly appreciate a solution! Thanks, best regards Gregor

TB wants to use my smartcard certificate from another mail account

I use TB 78.6 and there is a company mail account as well as a private mail account. For the company account, I installed a PKS#11 cryptography module from the smart card software which enables me to use the certificate saved on the smart card. That works as it should. However, when I connect to the private Mail account (Yahoo, OAuth2) via SSL, TB keeps asking me each time that imap.mail.yahoo.com:993 requires me to use a certificate and offers me as only solution to use the company certificate on the smart card which is totally unrelated to that account. I have the "remember" checkbox enabled and press on "cancel", but this decision is not remembered.

I tried to remove the cryptography module in the private mail account settings but that removed the module from all of the accounts. It looks like this is not a per-account-setting although it is listed individually for each account in the settings.

How can I stop TB from wanting to use my company certificate for that account?

FWIW: I am behind a company squid proxy which to me seems not to intercept SSL connections (how can I test that if it is related to the issue?).

I tried downloading wondershare dvd maker and avg popped up saying it wasnt trusted. I tried leaving the alert but it wouldnt let me so i tried pressing alt f4. Alt f4 didnt work, so i chose deletion option. But it deleted my firefox browser. Naturally i had no idea what was happening when i tried clicking the firefox shortcut and it said the file didnt exist or had been moved or deleted. I checked my uninstall option on my computer and firefox wasnt even listed. I downloaded imyfoneanyrecover app after a quick google search but for some reason when i opened the app it couldnt go in window mode and half the page is off the screen and i dont know how to switch the app to window mode. I even tried downloading firefox again and it wouldnt install. I am really confused right now and i am afraid all my history, bookmarks, etc. Are gone forever. Is it avg or was the wondershare dvd maker a malware that did this? Please someone help me!

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

Every time I get an upgrade something else changes. Having used this system now since 2008, I am finally thinking of giving up and transferring to Outlook again. I do this with great regret - but I am really not cut out for the Thunderbird world.

So If there is a solution, I might stay, but its become too much of a hassle now - I have also subscribed funds for many years.
