Good afternoon,

We're currently trying to set up a Hardening Guide for Firefox ESR but are struggling with a few policies and setting wildcards.

For example, we're trying to set an origin in Cookies > Block Settings to something like "*", and we get the error "Ignoring parameter "*" - not a valid origin."

In Chrome / Edge you can set a wildcard like this: [*.]google.com for example - we receive the same error message for this.

Can you do such a thing for Firefox ESR without having to list every site you want to block?

ESR Version: 115.6.0esr (64-bit)

Kind Regards, Ethan Jerrum

I've always liked the Firefox New Tab page, with Pocket, and until today, DarkReader plugin has always worked. But now it says that it can't because the page is protected.

I tried the solution to use bookmarklets, suggested in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1350781, but it didn't have any effect (https://sanketmehta7.github.io/DarkMode-JS-BookMark/

If I can't find a solution, I'll just ditch Pocket, and use Google as my first page, or something. Or maybe ditch Firefox, which doesn't seem to think that dark mode is important. I don't like being blinded by the light.

Firefox periodically says I am "forbidden" to enter my Kaiser website (KP.org). I know what Mozilla recommends as a fix, which is to clear data and cookies. But this creates more problems because I have to re-enter passwords and other settings. This is a problem Mozilla's website reports has been occurring for YEARS! Why can't Mozilla/Firefox fix this? Please tell me there is a better way to fix this problem.

Today I changed my Google password, and now I can't login via Thunderbird to get email.

On startup, I am prompted with the Google login screen, which asks for my email or phone. I click Next, and get the message

   400. That’s an error.
   The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That’s all we know.

I'm using Thunderbird 115.10.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Sonoma 14.5.

Greetings FF Community, New Samsung Galaxy S9 Ultra tablet running FF ver 127.02 on Android 14. Have no option to customize toolbar or even add the File Menu to the top of Firefox as other resources in Firefox indicate. Using a Finite bluetooth keyboard, ALT key does nothing, using bluetooth mouse right click on empty space in address bar - no context menu appears, enabled in mouse settings. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Screen shots below of laptop and S9 Ultra. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I recently updated Thunderbird to 115.3.3. When the update was complete it appears to have split my profile into two and created two of Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash. I use Earthlink which is the name of the POP3 account. Now there are Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash for "Earthlink", and a set for "Local Folders". Junk and Archives are only associated with "Local Folders", and "Outbox" shows up under a "Local Folders" header along with all of the folders I used to organize received messages. When new messages are downloaded they appear in "Inbox / Local Folders". Nothing appears in any of the "Earthlink / ..." folders.

I don't recall exactly what it looked like before but there was only one set of the primary folders, and the local folders I created to organize my inbox. I have attached screenshots of the the folder navigation pane, as well as the odd organization of the "Account Settings" tab. I am admittedly not an expert. Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I’m trying to move from Outlook 2003 to Thunderbird 115.12.2 (64-bit). Using the import wizard fails. Tools > Import select Import From Outlook and the following message appears. “Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client can not fulfil the message request”. I’m taken back to the Import from screen with the addition of a red panel with “No Profile Found” on it. Outlook 2003 is the default e-mail client, checked more than once. I’m trying to migrate to thunderbird so I have no account setting, thinking they would be imported. My pst’s files have been moved to a directory on a different partition to the Outlook programme, tried creating a dummy profile using default Outlook storage and still fails. I’ve looked at converting pst files to mbox, but this doesn’t see to include the account settings. But I could add them manually or I can not import the mbox files or directory structure into Thunderbird. I’ve been messing around trying other things but nothing works. Internet searches, Thunderbird forum searches suggests solutions but all fails and the steps don’t match Thunderbird menu, etc in many cases. I’m stuck. Can anyone give any advice on how to migrate from Outlook 2003 to Thunderbird. Tools, Add-Ins or manual methods, anything just to get me up and running. PS I’ve two pst files, one is the default main Outlook.pst and the second a secondary store I created in the folders of Outlokk called Store.pst, beside the none default storage location everything else is standard for Outlook and Thunderbird.

OK - I must be missing something. On my previous browser, Opera, if I wanted to see details of my passwords then I needed to put in the computer password, so keeping them quite secure. However, Firefox seems to let anyone using the browser to access the full details of all my passwords, even offering to copy them! This has to be the most insecure approach possible - surely this can't be correct, can it?

I've attached images of the problem I'm experiencing. Its like pixels are breaking/turning negative colors and it effects anything visible. I don't really understand what's causing this issue. It doesn't effect any other program on my computer/outside the firefox window, so I assume its a firefox issue. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the program with the refresh to hopefully fix the issue but it didn't work.
