I am using Thunderbird 68.4.2. I tried changing password settings on Thunderbird and ATT/Yahoo because I noticed returned emails in my spam folder on ATT. Emails I never sent, so I thought I might have been hacked. Thunderbird stopped sending or receiving emails. I went and reset all passwords. I still get my emails on Yahoo, but Thunderbird is not sending or receiving. when sending, I get "Login to server outbound.att.net with username garrysch@swbell.net failed." Again, I have checked my passwords and server settings. They are matching. Would appreciate any help.

Can you store the Security and Firefox Settings in a location other with than the Cookies and other "Private" settings?

REASON:

If you configure Firefox Settings to "Clear Private Data on Exit", THEN "Quit" Firefox so it does just that - It also wipes-out ALL your Privacy settings! The next time you open Firefox you have to go back and reset them all over again! (A tad irritating to say the least).

Thx, B.D.

Hello,

I am currently running FF 59.0.1. The reason that I am still at this level is that the last update to to this level WIPED ALL my open windows and tabs forcing me to loose MANY hours of work. Being so burned I turned off FF automatic updates.

Now being hit with the loss of all of my add-ons due to the latest catastrophe it looks like I will have to upgrade to make them work once again. Neither the "xpinstall.signatures.required" hack or the now completed "study" did anything to fix the add-on issue.

So now I need a way to backup my open windows and tabs before updating FF. Obviously whatever method is used MUST be restorable to the current version in the case that it is needed.

Thanks, Steve

Add-ons/Extension Update: FireFox Extension Fixes Released! Updates for Versions 47-thru-65!

Updates – Last updated 14:35 PST May 14, 2019. We expect this to be our final update.

  • If you are running Firefox versions 61 – 65 and 1) did not receive the deployed fix and 2) do not want to update to the current version (which includes the permanent fix): Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 57 – 60: Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 47 – 56: install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.



Updates – Last Updated: 17:04 EDT May 9, 2019

A less technical blog post about the outage is also available. If you enabled telemetry to get the initial fix, we’re deleting all data collected since May 4. (May 9, 17:04 EDT)

Mozilla CTO Eric Rescorla posted a blog on the technical details of what went wrong last weekend.



Updates – Last Updated: 19:28 EDT May 8 2019

We’ve released Firefox 66.0.5 for Desktop and Android, and Firefox ESR 60.6.3, which include the permanent fix for re-enabling add-ons that were disabled starting on May 3rd. The initial, temporary fix that was deployed May 4th through the Studies system is replaced by these updates, and we recommend updating as soon as possible. Users who enabled Studies to receive the temporary fix, and have updated to the permanent fix, can now disable Studies if they desire.

For users who cannot update to the latest version of Firefox or Firefox ESR, we plan to distribute an update that automatically applies the fix to versions 52 through 60. This fix will also be available as a user-installable extension. For anyone still experiencing issues in versions 61 through 65, we plan to distribute a fix through a user-installable extension. These extensions will not require users to enable Studies, and we’ll provide an update when they are available.



"Updates – Last Updated: 11:51 EDT May 8 2019 (From Mozilla Blog)

Firefox 66.0.5 has been released, and we recommend that people update to that version if they continue to experience problems with extensions being disabled. You’ll get an update notification within 24 hours, or you can initiate an update manually.
An update to ESR 60.6.3 is also available as of May 8th. We’re continuing to work on a fix for older versions of Firefox, and will update this post and on social media as we have more information."



A Firefox release has been pushed — version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled (Bug 1549061).

There are remaining issues that we are actively working to resolve, but we wanted to get this fix out before Monday to lessen the impact of disabled add-ons before the start of the week. More information about the remaining issues can be found by clicking on the links to the release notes above. (May 5, 16:25 EDT)



"Last Updated: 00:54 EDT May 5 2019

Updates:

Some users are reporting that they do not have the “hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973” study active in “about:studies”.

Rather than using work-arounds, which can lead to issues later on, we strongly recommend that you continue to wait. If it’s possible for you to receive the hotfix, you should get it by 6am EDT, 24 hours after it was first released.

For everyone else, we are working to ship a more permanent solution. (May 5, 00:54 EDT)

There are a number of work-arounds being discussed in the community. These are not recommended as they may conflict with fixes we are deploying. We’ll let you know when further updates are available that we recommend, and appreciate your patience. (May 4, 15:01 EDT)"

Hello,

What is the story with Firefox print rendering searchable PDFs? Apparently this has to do with how the web pages are print rendered.

Chrome and I think IE? are now print rendering all web pages as graphics which kills the ability to create text searchable PDF files using various PDF printers like Bullzip.

So has or will Firefox going to be joining this same path anytime soon?

Thanks, Steve

How to prevent DOWNLOADING of video (not merely prevent autoplay) in Firefox

This may sound like word games, but I'm not trying to be funny, merely specific.

So I'm on a network with limited bandwidth. Therefore it's critical for me to understand what settings I can configure (if any) that will prevent the DOWNLOAD of video and/or large images from web sites.

For example, your basic site nowadays probably uses HTML5 and may use that vs. the old-style Flash plug-ins to embed video. And yep classic HTML links with references to image files for the images.

Back in the day you could configure a browser to ignore these references and then the browser would not even attempt to fetch the referenced image or video files. I've recently started using Firefox again, and I'm trying to learn how Firefox handles this in the HTML5 era (or rather what dumb users like me are supposed to do nowadays).

I'm noticing most of the help literature is regarding disabling settings of the auto-PLAY feature. However, due to my ignorance of modern Firefox, perhaps I'm reading it wrong, but most of it seems to involve disabling plug-ins that activate after the file is downloaded, not preventing the actual download. Similar to if I'm using Microsoft Word to view a DOCX file from a web site, uninstalling Word doesn't prevent the DOCX file from downloading. What I don't want to do is cheerfully disable the video playing while my browser still happily downloads the video in the background... because my main goal is not to avoid the annoyance of autoplay, but my goal is to conserve bandwidth on my connection.

FYI I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum on Manjaro Linux.

Thanks for advice anyone can provide in helping bring me into the "now" of modern Firefox, or who can point me to any further help articles or instructions to help educate me about this. If I'm over-reading and disabling auto-PLAY also inherently disables the downloading of the associated media, super, but that distinction is not obvious in any of the documentation I've seen so far.

Thanks!!

Long time user of Firefox (and Thunderbird) - in last few days started getting the yellow bar warning about a web page slowing down your browser with the options to wait or... some pages I can click on wait and it will continue soon after, other times Firefox freezes and can only be stopped through task manager.

This happens on sites such as Google Maps, my financial institutions websites, etc. I've tried safe mode, refresh, disable all extensions, disable hardware acceleration, etc - nothing works..

I'm on an Spectre X360 laptop with 16 GB Ram, 512GB SSD drive, UHD display. Running Avast anti-virus. On 5Ghz wireless to 150Mpbs internet connection.

I installed Chrome to compare, not a single problem with speed and no yellow bar messages.

In past, I've had no problems with speed - even with multiple tabs open.

What happened? This just started out of the blue, at first I thought it was our ISP until I tried Chrome.

As I tried to enter my plugins below, I opened the add-ons manager and when I went back to the tab to enter them got the same yellow bar A web page... error! ON THIS PAGE!
