Can someone please help me understand the list of what is "Blocked" and "Allowed" on my browser. I've included a screenshot below. What I'm not understanding is where Enhanced Tracking Protection has the sites listed under "ALLOWED" and why those sites are allowed instead of being Blocked. I hope this doesn't mean what I can only assume it means in which case I personally would never allow. Thank you in advance for your time and support.

I've been using Thunderbird for ages without any (real) problems. A few days ago, Thunderbird updated to version 78.5.0. Shortly thereafter the problems started. I can't remember if it started immediately after the update so I'm not sure if the update was the direct cause.

Anyway, every time I try to retrieve my mail (by clicking "Get Messages") a pop-up appears:

(See image attachment)

This pop-up isn't new to me since I'm using my own mail server with a self-signed certificate. So every time I update the certificate, I get this popup. It is new however the pop-up appears while nothing has changed (other than Thunderbird updating).

If I click "Confirm Security Exception", the popup disappears but no mail is retrieved. If I click "Get Messages" again, the pop-up reappears. Oddly enough, If I go to Thunderbird's Certificate Manager, I see the certificate was actually added.

So that's one strange thing. It isn't the strangest thing however. What's even stranger is that the location (email.glasshouse.nl:995) isn't the address of my mail server. If I look under Thunderbird's "Server Settings", I see the correct address. Even if I change the server address to something else (the IP address for instance), the pop-up still displays email.glasshouse.nl as location. I'm not worried this is some kind of hack or virus or malware since I recognize the address - it's the mail server I used well over ten years ago (in Thunderbird).

So what is actually going on here? And more important, how can I solve this so I can get to my email again?

Thanks in advance!

I'd like to easily be able to suspend Firefox from constantly asking for my Primary Password. There are often times when I don't need to enable Firefox Password from filling in passwords and don't need to login to my account at any particular website, but want to lookup information. For example, I may want to see if an item is available on Amazon and what the options are without having to login to my account. But as soon as I go to Amazon -- and for every, single page I access while there -- the "Enter Primary Password" box pops up and I can't continue without clicking "cancel". If I enter my Primary Password just once it stops asking. But I'd prefer to be able to easily tell Firefox to not enable Firefox Password and ask for my Primary Password until I want it enabled; perhaps by having a toggle button in the menu bar? I see there's what sort of looks like a method for this if you search for "Firefox keeps asking for Primary Password", but it state that it applies when using AVG and another security software, but I'm not using either of those. Maybe it continues to ask after entering it when using one of these software? I tried it anyway and it didn't make any difference. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

Linux, windows, firefox, chrome, i cannot get to my profiles and have minimal to no real access as he has me stuck in his system sandboxed in a container. I dont know why he is doing this to me other than pure hate for me as well as himself. This has been going on for over 2 years and it needs to be over. How do i get untangled from him and this enterprise hold he has on me?I have NO secure devices.

When I open my Yahoo browser I get a pop up asking for my "Primary password". I checked in the Task Manager and it is present as Firefox that when I end that task then the popup goes away. I am already signed in to my Firefox Acct. I screenshot the popup below. It will return several time even if I "X" out or hit cancel. There is no other information no matter where I click on that box. I do not put any passwords in the box for fear of scam/virus/spoof ETC.

I have been using the website URL: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ for several years.

I just got a new computer and downloaded Firefox to use as my preferred browser, but when I attempt to open the above website, I get the message Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

I cannot find any workaround which will let me access this site. I am NOT concerned about the site security as it is a UK GOV website. Microsoft Edge will open the website without any issue, why won't Firefox?

How do I get routine access to it through Firefox?
