Hello, I got a tale of two computers with Thunderbird on both. First, I will start with my HP Laptop, its my primary computer due to its speed. I went to check my emails this morning. I double click on the TBird icon on my desktop. It does not open. Waited a few seconds, tried again and again. Finally, a folder containing pictures opened up. Then, I went to open FireFox, and that same folder with pictures opened. I tried this like five times and the same thing happened. Then I got to thinkin, when I went to shut it down the other day, it said "update and shut down", so I did. Now that I remembered the update, I decided to go back in time to when the laptop was running real good. So I did that recovery, in doing so, it wiped out some of the applications I had on my computer, such as FoxFire, Thunderbird, Adobe, HP printer, CCleaner, and probably others that I seldom used. Somehow, I got to the point where I reinstalled Thunderbird. The only thing is, it would not let me in. When double clicking on the icon, it took me to a page that just wanted my name, email address and password. I enter the info, that page stayed open and added a few more items to the page, such as IMAP and POP3 stuff. IMAP was already selected by Tbird. I then had the option to click "done" . In doing that, it said "Unable to log into server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password" So there's that. Cannot even see the email program. Second part of the mystery, I have an old Gateway desktop. Its slower than slow. I only use it in emergencies, as the above scenario. I fire it up, wait about 5 minutes before I open Thunderbird on that. Guess what, it wants a password. Whats different about this deal is that the email opens, and I can see all my previous emails, but cannot receive or send. I have no Idea whats going on, unless its my deceased wife coming back to haunt me...I don't know.

in Thunderbird how to change password when the original password is lost?

Hi, I am not sure how it happened, I am now in a position where I can't use my Thunderbird properly. Every time I open TB, it asks for "please enter your Primary Password" which I don't have/deleted? If a try to remove the tick from "Use a Primary Password" it opens a box requesting my Current Password, I have tried the last one and the one before, none are accepted. When I search in Saved logins, it seems to me to be empty. in short I seem to need a current password to change my password. It is a vicious loop. Can any one help sort this out, Please Thank you from Ilio Pieroni

On the page listing passwords, it was possible to sort them by "Alerts".

In settings, there is an option to enable checking the vulnerable passwords: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-password-manager-alerts-breached-websites

On my other laptop using Firefox v121, the alerts are properly displayed. But on my second laptop using Firefox v124, the alerts are gone. I can't sort password by "Alerts", the option isn't there. Both laptops share the same Firefox account and have password synchronized between each other.

Obviously, I ticked the "Show alerts about passwords for breached websites" box in the settings but it looks like it does not nothing. I also checked in "about:config" and everything seems good.

Is this feature gone?

Using Firefox mobile for android and GBoard.

I've selected Firefox as my auto fill service.

A few official apps (at least one banking app, for example) that I've downloaded from the play store that report the following after I unlock and select the correct password:

"Firefox could not verify the authenticity of the application. Do you want to proceed with autofilling the selected credentials."

I can't seem to find any other report of this error so I'm curious what's going on.

Security Concerns: Saved forms (across VMs) and password (after clearing all history).

v155.9.1esr Debian 12

I'm testing different Debian 12 on multiple VMs, it came to my surprise to see that my VPN hash I used on a website the day before was saved by Firefox on the new VM.

The Sync was on but then which one saved my form (hash)?

  1. Numbered list item Logins & Passwords ? note: The hash was not a login but a form. If Firefox saves all the form, you should explicitly rename Logins by any forms/inputs.
  2. Numbered list item History? note: I hope this is only URLs.

If Firefox is savings "forms" (input fields) not just "logins" then it should be explicitly written. Is it an expected behavior?

I sent an email with multiple BCCs and no CCs or TOs, I put myself as one of the BCCs.

I did not receive it and I do not think anybody else did as well since I asked a few people.

The email is in the sent folder. I tried forwarding the email from my sent folder to myself as CC, and that worked. I also tried fowarding as BCC, and that worked.

So what is going on? Is BCC working? How can I know for certain? Do I need to foward the email as BCCs to all my BCCs to get this to work?

Thanks for your help.

Why is it impossible for Thunderbird to have an option to display the real senders email address instead of just the "fake" display and return address?

I use an addon to add the true address column in version 102, but as usual Mozilla upates disable useful security related updates.

When is Thunderbird going to show this essential true address instead of spending so much time changing the look and feel?

I am stuck with version 102 or another email client until this changes.

April 15, 2024 Thunderbird is Insecure There is missing functionality issues

1. How to Disable the "SHOW PASSWORD" Button in Security Settings 2. Either implement with a Password Password option, only to show the Passwords or 3. Allow the ability to Disable the Button

back in 1916-18 the ability to disable the "SHOW PASSWORD" Button worked with with a variation of the following at that time user_pref("pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords", true); I believe I created and used chrome.css or chrome.js

At some point this functionality ceased to work.

Now, I have scoured the Net to figure out a Solution simply setting the value to True, gets reset by Thunderbird, TB does not save it. it always reverts back to False and the button remains available and does not disable

I have tried everything, adding it in user.js, settings.js, userChrome.js I put it in every directory, nothing seems to work

Do I have to Lock it? - How? confusing and disappointing.

Please provide a simple step by step Solution to the problem

Thank you

I wrote an email without putting in anyone for the 'TO:' or 'CC:' fields. The BCC: field only had my own email address in it.

I accidentally sent this email before I had sorted out the TO: and CC: fields properly.

In my sent email and it had 'undisclosed-recipients' in the To: field.

I found this disconcerting, since I wasn't SURE if I hadn't put anything in the CC: or TO: fields. I worried I may have sent a rough, poorly worded email to someone and that could backfilre.

Am I right that whenever 'undisclosed-recipients' is shown in the To: field and I sent the email, I can check in that sent email who was in the BCC: field and that should re-assure me who had actually recieved a copy of that email.

Clarity in this area would be VERY helpful.

Regards
