Hello,

There is a very long list of these that are associated with my account. I've imported my Firefox settings from computer to computer for at least twenty years. I may have made mistakes that caused me to pick up malware, and want to fix this, and some of these certificates have expired.

How do I know what to keep and what to either delete or edit trust regarding?

Is there any way to quickly and easily have all of them assessed at once?

Thanks very much!

Sally

Dear Thunderbird Help Team,

since 3rd January 2023 I get a warning message from Thunderbird during login to my @t-online.de each time I try to read my mails.

I am using Thunderbird 102.6.1 (64) On Windows 10 Home PC with latest Edition Windows 10 Home Version 22H2 Installiert am ‎13.‎04.‎2022 Betriebssystembuild 19045.2486 Leistung Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4190.0

Please see the attached warning message (in German). In my translation of the warning says: "Add security exception rule.... The certificate is not trusted because it has not been verified to have been issued by a trusted authority using a secure signature..."

If I view into the certificate I read the following, see screenshot attached.

I now would not like to accept the security exception permanently. I think this is best practice not to accept such a exception?

Dear help community, do you have any help to fix this issue please? Kind regards

Hello,

we use firefox in our company and the requirement appeared to turn on the security setting "Delete cookies and sitedata when closing Firefox" due to our security guidelines.

I´ve already checked the "Enterprise Policy Generator" Plugin, but there is no such option. Is there a possibilty to check this option and block it for the user by the about:config page?

Thanks in advance, J.Stempel

How are my bookmarks stored when synced between devices? Are my bookmarks encrypted as well as my passwords/credit card info? This is from the Mozilla page regarding encryption:

"Your encryption key remains a secret, only known to you and your authorized devices." and "We store your encrypted data on our servers so we can’t read it."

I just wanted to make sure this also applies to bookmarks before I import all of mine.

Thanks for any help!

Windows FF 108.0.2 automatically downloads PDF files now, even though ASK WHERE is checked in Settings. I have, for YEARS, had FF set to ask me where to store any download, and it is still set that way. And whenever I opened a PDF link, FF would display the link in its PDF viewer, and if I wanted to download it, I would click the PDF viewer download button.

However, now FF automatically downloads it to disk FIRST, popping up the Downloads box showing progress, before ever displaying it on screen. What changed? This seems like a HUGE security risk.

How do I see and edit server, xfinity, gmail, etc, paswords store in Thunderbird? I have seen mulitple answers to this question, none of which work for me. For example, one of your answers says see menu(///), tools, preferences. My thunderbird has no preferences under tools. I just downloaded thunderbird today (Jan 8, 23) after a window 11 reset, so I think I have the lastest version of t-bird.

I have been using Thunderbird for a very long time with Outlook / Office365 (pro account). For the past few weeks, Thunderbird has been taking a very long time to send an email. I see the "Sending..." popup but nothing happens. If I click "cancel" and resend immediately, the email is sent immediately. If I wait, the email eventually sends after several minutes, sometimes it does not send at all.

I use the parameters defined on this page: https://support.microsoft.com/fr-fr/office/param%C3%A8tres-pop-imap-et-smtp-8361e398-8af4-4e97-b147-6c6c4ac95353

Does anyone have the same problem and solved it?

I specify that I have no problem sending with my Gmail accounts, nor with the Outlook web application.

Hello, I did a mistake while modifying my primary password. I'm very focused on password questions these days - I'm using Bitwarden since recently and very happy of that - the fact is that a tiny error can create big issues, that's what happened. I 'm now unable to type the precise password, then stuck. How could I resolve the problem? I don t have any issue with my email and IDs and passwords. My issue is the Primary Thunderbird password, (which I activated to protect the data) I could easily remove Thunderbird from Windows and reinstall it, of course, but I will may be lose some sent mails, will I? I 'm not quite sure that everything is actually synchronized with the email providers even though it should. But I'm may be wrong. So, Is there another solution? if someone knows how to remove the main password and to create a new one by any means, thanks a lot :)

By the way, if you're not yet using a password manager, Bitwarden is something fantastic. I read it everywhere, I used it, and I can confirm it.

Private window icons in Win 10 doesn't work as expected with Profiles

I have shortcuts to launch Firefox in two ways, one with no commands and one with the following command: -P "Personal" --no-remote This used to show two separate Firefox icons on the taskbar. Firefox windows opened in each profile would be grouped with the same profile and kept separate from other profiles. With the latest update I still have two icons, the Default profile has a Firefox icon and the 'Personal' profile has a private browsing icon. Even though there are no private windows open. According to latest updates, if I open private windows then they should be grouped with their own icon. However, whether I have Default or Personal profile windows open, Private windows are grouped with their standard browsing windows.

This is on Win 10, Firefox 107.0.1

Any ideas how to fix this? Ideally I would have the standard Firefox icon on both profiles then, to conform with the private window separation update, my private windows would be separated from the standard windows but also from different profiles.
