I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

Hello, Today I tried to copy my email password to log in with browser, but I got a confirmation box. What credentials should I put in the box? I tried to use my Windows account and then user/password from my email (I have a copy on paper, just in case), none of them worked. Is this a bug in new Thunderbird beta? I installed it on Friday, because Thunderbird 77.0b3 has integration with Exchange server Could you confirm what should I put as credentials? Regards, Mariusz

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.

I have been using MOZILLA / Netscape/ Firefox Since 1996/7. Periodically I have a problem . LIKE RIGHT NOW I have to use Chrome to contact you because your latest version is seriously corrupted and under attack from ; "attachappstreams.best You already know that because you've got a web page warning us of it. But you don't have a way to fix it. No matter how many times I delete it. Reboot my Windows 7 desktop. Or open and close the latest version of Firefox. That damn phony update keeps popping up with bells and blue screens and I can't use your browser until YOU GUYS figure out how you screwed up and gave them access. ADD ons and Ad blockers are equally dangerous and I limit them to only 2 for the past 5 years. Get a handle on the is , guys/gals . Or sadly, because I really don't like Chrome. But what choice do I have. FIX IT. IT Quickly. Or you're going to lose serious market share. Just like you did to Internet Explorer 20 years ago.

Hello, I have 3 websites:

http://history.typeheritage.com/ http://forums.typeheritage.com/ http://bazaar.typeheritage.com/

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

A thousand thanks for your help, Anna

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!

My company uses PGP for all email and Thunderbird is the primary client. The new version 78 with PGP enabled appears to force encrypting subject line. This breaks all our filtering. Enigmail allowed us to disabled subject line encryption.

Is there an option to disable this while keeping PGP enabled?

Thunderbird 78 on macOS OpenPGP Key Management. How? Where?

Since the Migration away from Enigmail to Thunderbird 78 (some Migration-Assistant did automatically start and failed after I did not remember one of my passwords for a gpg key)... I have no idea where to correct the issue.

I can nowhere see the available/imported keys also the public keys from friends seem to be missing and i cannot send them encrypted mails anymore.

The thing that drives me nearly insane is that I can not find ANY menu or menuentry that provides any access to the OpenPGP information Thunderbird 78 is expected to handle now.

What is going on here? Am I an idiot suddenly in operating my mailclient or is this menu or menuentry simply not existing? How can it be that such an essential thing is not easily accessible to me?

I am puzzled, angry and deeply disappointed, because I like my software to be open source, but this experience drives me away. And I even needed to create a new firefox account to even give feedback an ask this question.

Nevertheless I hope someone can help me with this. Right. now my mailclient is useless to me. And I am not the one who is responsible for this mess.

I had been using Thunderbird + Enigmail + Gpg4win + Yubikey to sign and encrypt my emails and the setup worked pretty well. However, after updating to Thunderbird 78, which has built-in OpenPGP support, I'm having trouble to configure it to work with my Yubikey.

Following is my GPG keyring:

PS C:\Users\DDoSolitary> gpg -K --keyid-format long C:/Users/DDoSolitary/AppData/Roaming/gnupg/pubring.kbx


sec# ed25519/50268311C7AD3F62 2017-09-02 [SC]

     688E1D093C3638F588890D4450268311C7AD3F62

uid [ultimate] DDoSolitary <DDoSolitary@gmail.com> uid [ultimate] DDoSolitary <DDoSolitary@outlook.com> ssb> rsa4096/A7A1C4F99C807AD4 2019-03-21 [A] ssb> rsa4096/F091309F5863457C 2019-03-21 [E] ssb> rsa4096/90A79E1B71BC0CB1 2019-03-21 [S]

The master key is kept offline and the subkeys are stored in my Yubikey and are used to sign/encrypt messages.

What I've tried:

1. Enable "mail.openpgp.allow_external_gnupg" according to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:OpenPGP:Smartcards 2. Add my key ID to in the "End to End Encryption" section of Account Settings (I've tried key ID of the master key and the signing subkey, both of which don't work) 3. Write a new message, check "Security > Digitally Sign This Message", then click Send.

I've checked that the GPGME library (C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuPG\bin\libgpgme-11.dll) is in the PATH environment variable. As Gpg4win only provides 32-bit builds, I also reinstalled the 32-bit version of Thunderbird.

Unfortunately, I always get "Unable to send the message, because there is a problem with your personal key. The configured key ID 'xxx' cannot be found on your keyring."
