I've received a message from Google saying "We’re writing to let you know that starting September 30, 2024, your Gmail, Contact and Calendar account will no longer support less secure apps, third-party apps or devices that ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password."

Will this have any effect on my Thunderbird usage? Many thanks

As of January 2024, I am constantly being asked for a Primary Password when I use the Firefox browser. I do not believe I ever set a Primary Password or Master Password with Firefox, and I have been using Firefox for many years. When I go to the Settings page, it says to confirm my current Primary Password in order to change it. But I need to know my current password to do that. I also unchecked Primary Password, and got a pop-up that said if I remove my Primary Password my information will not be protected if my computer is compromised. Obviously, I don't want that to happen. Is it possible I am being asked for a Primary Password because I am using a VPN? Please advise on how to resolve this problem. I can't change my password, and I can't confirm ever setting one so I am concerned. Thank you.

Dear community,

since some recent update I am asked for a primary password every time I open the browser, which is higly annoying. I like my passwords protected by a primary password and in former times it was only asked for when trying to reveal a saved password. I know this has probably to do with me using Firefox sync, because I use the browser on my Android too but I would like to keep my devices synced. Besides: On my phone I am only asked for a fingerprint when accessing passwords, not every single time I open the app. There must be a way to reconfigure this on a desktop, right?

"Your browser is being managed by your organization" is on the top of my settings page and it preventing me from using some of my streaming services. I am at my home, don't work at a job where I would ever be on a network, what the heck? It is some name I don't even know. Did I get hacked? Is it a virus? Nothing I have seen on here so far has worked, and I AM NOT A LINUX USER. (After looking at other answers, seems to be a problem with Linux.) I am on Windows 11. Thanks!

Hello,

While in my internet banking it is not possible to copy/paste the IBAN, the sum or just the name or anything. No matter if I used the context menu copy/paste function or the keyboard shortcuts. I am trying to copy from a Google Drive opened text file or a template saved in my online banking.

In Chrome there was no issue with copy/paste.

Outside of my banking, there are no issues with copy/paste.

I expect it is a security setting somewhere, do you know which one it is?

Thank You!

My ISP suggested I change my password, and I did so. I also deleted the stored passwords, and followed the direction supplied, in the help section "Did your ability to receive mail suddenly stop? Was it working before?" it also explained "Close and re-open Thunderbird. You will be prompted to enter a new password for the account."

I'm not getting the prompt, and I'm unable to input the new password. How can I resolve this issue?

Thanks, Patrick

Firefox crashed hard on me.

When I got it back it, all the add-on's were disabled, my bookmarks were missing, and my preferences destroyed.

So I need to delete Google as my default search engine and restore Yahoo as my preferred engine.

The button to add new search engine is missing.

Without using an add-on, how am I supposed to restore my search engine?

My laptop is often "borrowed"; access to my "recently bookmarked" items can (occasionally) be inappropriate. I am surprised that there is not a 'easy to access' method to toggle it OFF (!?) I found the below describing how to does this. HOWEVER, I do not find the key (showRecentlyBookmarked).

SUGGESTIONS ?

using: Windows 10 Home 22H2 build 19045.3930


Directly Edit a Preference The menu item switches a hidden preference from true to false, and you can do that directly as follows: (A) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful. (B) In the search box above the list, type or paste book and pause while the list is filtered (C) Double-click the browser.bookmarks.showRecentlyBookmarked preference to switch the value from true to false

I've created (multiple times) a app password on https://account.live.com/proofs/AppPassword. I let Thunderbird autodetect the servers which seems to work ( (imap) outlook.office365.com:993 and smtp.office365.com:587 )

But the password is rejected. The user interface in Thunderbird is bit unclear what exactly fails. Is there a possibility to see where in the handshake to connection is rejected?
