3 months ago I was on version 115.3.1 and asked a question about the safety of 115 updates. I received the following answer from sfhowes: If you're already on 115, you shouldn't have any issues with further updates to the 115 branch, as some, but not all, problems are fixed with each 115 release. The time to hesitate is when the annual major release is offered around June/July. Wait a few months for the major bugs to be fixed, or run two versions side-by-side.

I continued to update to further 115 releases but, because of the many apparent user issues, I stopped updating at version 115.5.1. The latest release is now 115.8.0. Can anyone guarantee 'no issues' if I now permit this release to be installed ... I have no problems using 115.5.1 but perhaps this is now a security risk?

Hello, We have recently migrated from Exchange 2013 to Exchange Online. When the setting "Never send return receipt" is set, the return receipt is always sent as soon as the client downloads the mail. If the setting is set to "ask", the return receipt is not sent even if I open the mail. However, if I select the "Ignore" button, the return receipt is sent. All the articles I have found on this issue are 14 years old and refer to Exchange 2007, but in Exchange 2013 it was fine. Only in Exchange Online this behavior started. Outlook does not have this issue. Is there anything I can do about it?

We have an intranet site behind an Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) - after updating the SSL certificate, the website will no longer allow Firefox clients to log in.

They will be prompted to sign in (with a default sign in prompt, not even the website login prompt), even if you enter the correct user/password it will continue to prompt you. The new cert works with Edge, Safari, and Chrome - I've enabled the following settings in about:Config network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris, network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris, network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris, and set signon.autologin.proxy to be true - but the issue still persists.

Has anyone seen this/been able to figure this out? I've seen a few other posts, but no resolutions. Does Firefox not support Certificate Signature Algorithm SHA-384 With RSA Encryption? This is the only difference I can see between the 2 certificates; the original is SHA-256 With RSA Encryption.

Thank you!

Hello, so I have been putting my custom links onto the 'top sites' start page in Firefox, by editing the icons and putting the URL, etc. It is a great 'speed dial' type feature I love. One thing has me tearing my hair out after trying all ways to try and fix this to appear to my liking, is the 'custom icon' from the website not showing in the sites I want to 'speed dial' Facebook and YT show up fine, but random sites I want on the page don't do this. I don't care why this is anymore, please don't give lengthily fixes. It's just silly you need a working URL with an icon at the end of it to display this properly. It did make me very mad, can you tell, even madder when I saw it done as it should be in OPERA browser, on their 'top sites', or 'speed dial' customizable home page they have the sensible option there to pick your own icon, you can put in a folder on your desktop if you like, no working URL needed! start a collection of what icons you want to see on your own start page. Can you please implement this 'common sense' modification as soon as possible, it will take only minutes of code writing i'm sure. I do not want to, but I will go to Opera as my main browser for this common sense functionality, good luck and thank you.

how to copy & save user info & all emails, and copy into a newer rev on another computer

Thinking of buying a refurb Mac made in Jan 2023. They don't say what OSX is installed. If I use Migration Assistant to copy the whole hard drive from my 2011 machine running El Capitan and Thunderbird 60.90.1, I may find that this old version of TB will not function. So I would try to install a newer rev of TB, but not all the way to rev 115.

If I'm lucky, it will not be a "new install" because then I would have to previously find & save the Profile.ini and that other .ini file. I don't remember if I also need to save the actual email data separately, but of course I want that as well. And then I would have to do a complicated process to copy the Users and emails back into the newly installed version. I did this once long ago & don't relish figuring it out again.

However, the process of Migrating and fixing all the Preferences etc on the new computer might take me some days, and in the meantime I would be sending & receiving emails on the old computer. So I would want to take THAT data and stick it in the new machine.

So can anyone tell me if my old rev of TB is likely to function?

So I was forced to migrate from Eudora to Thunderbird and lost half my emails in the process (10 years worth). It's all corrupted when I open them. Okay, learned to live with it.

Then recently I had to change drive number on some of my hard disks. When I rebooted Thunderbird was empty as if I just had installed it.

I know one way to solve it is to go through the pain of re-configuring everything from scratch and locate the old mail folders, and tweak the program as I want it, etc.

But... is it not possible to edit the registry by only changing the drive letter so that it becomes exactly like before?

OR:

Without messing with the registry, is there somewhere I can change the location of where it reads the data to know the configurations, mail setting, mail folders, etc, so that it becomes like before?

I use Windows 7 by the way (yes I know, but I'm tweaking and maintaining it with stuff like Optach, it works like a charm).

I'm getting desperate as there's important emails pending, so I defer to the online oracle!

Is there a way to rename things in the Passwords list? I'm not concerned about MY password or sign-in, but what appears in the list. A name such as "login.live.com" tells me nothing about what site that sign-in will take me to. I'd like to be able to rename it with something that gives me a hint.

I have a fairly long list of saved logins, and visually scan the list at times to get to a supplier or service I need.

When I'm viewing a PDF from within Firefox and try to print the page, it shows a smaller version between 1/2-3/4 of the size of the paper. I have "fit to page selected" and this doesn't change it. I try a larger than 100% scale and this doesn't change it either.

However when I download the pdf and pull it up using Acrobat it allows me to print full page, fit to page, scale, etc no problem.

Initially I thought it was my printer, but I removed and reinstalled the drivers for the printer and I don't have this issue with any other program except for printing from Firefox. It's almost like the Firefox browser has too small of a page default set so that it's fitting to a page, but the page is smaller than 8.5x11 printer paper.

How do I fix this?

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi all,

First time posting so apologies if I mess anything up. My company has created an inbound calling service using twilio under the hood. We utilize webworkers to send cross tab messaging around call actions to the twilio service that manages a particular call. One specific feature that is critical to us is the ability to answer a phone call from any tab that our service is running on.

With one of the recent updates to firefox we noticed that this feature no longer works because the calls to navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia() would not resolve until you clicked on the page where this action was being called. This effectively means that you can only answer the phone call on the page that actually houses the twilio logic for answering the phone call (via a button action).

Is this an intended security improvement? If not, is there anyway to prevent this from happening other than holding on to an open mic stream for the entire time the application is open?

Thank you for reading!
