Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

I want to save my credit cards in Firefox, but I cannot find the option this article refers to:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill

I only have "logins and passwords" there, not "forms and auto-fill".

Am I missing something? Does Firefox even save credit cards for international users or not?

Thanks!

hey all,

I get the following error ONLY for internal websites (we have our own Windows CA): SEC_ERROR_CERT_SIGNATURE_ALGORITHM_DISABLED Yes, I could "ignore" the error, however this is not desired. I compared already the algorithm with some external certs (like Let's Encrypt). Same algorithm, no error....

Have already tried with several internal websites, but without success. Some information about the certificate: Algorithm: RSA 2048 key length Sign. Algorithm: SHA-256 with RSA Encryption V3

What is wrong? I have already tried a lot of things without success. Unfortunately, I no longer know what to do.We deploy the certificates (root+intermediate) via GPO (this works so far). We have the above mentioned problems only after switching from 68ESR to 78ESR.

Thanks in advance.

In the previous version of Firefox Beta for Android downloaded from Google Play Store, I could toggle the esni option to true, under about:config. Now this version 85.0.0-beta.2 the option is removed. I have enabled trr.mode to level 3, also the trr uri is unchanged and using Mozilla Cloudflare DNS. But when I use Cloudflares ESNI checker, Firefox Beta fails the ESNI test. Why was this option the network security esni mode? Or is under a different name? This issue is also present in the Firefox Nightly Build for Android from Google Play Store.

I have a few add-ons installed in Firefox (85.0.1, 64-bit, under Windows 10, 1909), but when I open a Private Browsing window, I can no longer access them. True, they are still there and can be seen listed under Menu/Add-ons, but I don't see how to control them there, only enable or disable them.

If I want to use NoScript (for example) in a Private Browsing window, how do I set Firefox up to do that? -- jclarkw

I posted a question and got one answer that does not help.

Verizon.net is now handled by AOL. In 4 days Thunderbird will not support it unless I comply with the new AOL security settings. I am having trouble doing that unless I delete the Verizon.net account and re-install it thereby losing all my Sent messages. That will be painful. AOL did give me an App Generated Password to use but I cannot find the place in Thunderbird to add it.

The one answer* said if my incoming and outgoing servers are imap.aol.com and smtp.aol.com it would be easy. The server settings are: pop.verizon.net and smtp.verizon.net

Any other suggestions?????

It is my understanding that in Private browsing mode, tabs aren't isolated from each other and all tabs share the same (in memory) cookie jar and thus, for instance, existing third-party cookies are possibly sent in the same private session.

Why multi-account-containers addon is not avaliable in PB when it can be beneficial?

I installed Thunderbird in Tiny Core Linux v.10 Everything worked fine, I added two e-mail accounts which both worked well and added the passwords in the master password configuration. Next time I opened Thunderbird to check my mail, the application asked for the master password. This failed. I tried to open and check the passwords, but fail to open the master password folder. I am very sure the password is correct. PLEASE NOTE: Tiny Core Linux loads in RAM, as do the applications being opened. It may be possible, when closing the system, the original password was not back-up'ed automatically. How can I delete the master password entry, so I can enter the respective P/W's for the respective accounts, and without having to re-install the application?

Hello - I received an email regarding my G Suite account that says starting Feb 15, 2021, G Suite accounts will only allow access to apps using OAuth. Password-based access will no longer be supported.

It goes on to say: If you are using Thunderbird or another email client, re-add your Google Account and configure it to use IMAP with Oauth.

It says if I do not take the above action, when LSA access is discontinued after Feb 15, 2021, I'll begin receiving an error message that my username-password combo is incorrect.

I have personal and business G-mail accounts, both of which I access through Thunderbird. I'm not a techie -- this was all set up for me by someone else -- and I'm unsure about how to "re-add/reconfigure my Google account," and when to implement this -- or is it possible that Thunderbird has already made changes at that end to accommodate this new Oauth requirement?

I'd be eternally grateful for any specific how-to steps you can provide to ensure uninterrupted email service.

Thanks so much! Faith Brill Owner, Instant Karma Dog Training Orange County, CA

Please can someone tell me why is there such a long delay between opening firefox and the master password prompt?

Also if anyone knows if there is some way to either speed up the master password prompt so that it opens instantly on opening firefox or prevent it from opening until a password box is present on the webpage.

The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Our company is using Firefox. We recently have found that you can launch Command Prompt or PowerShell by typing "cmd" or "powershell" into address bar of "Open File" or "Save Page As" menu.

Since we can not accept this behavior for security reasons, we are considering disabling "Open File" and "Save Page As" feature themselves. Is there a way to realize this?

We sought options to disable these features, but could not find any so far. Or If there is alternative solution for this, that would be highly appreciated if you share your knowledge.

Why are there Chrome .idb files in my Firefox 85 browser? I've never used Chrome browser and don't have Chrome installed. These idb files take up a large amount of space. Also when first downloaded 85 seemed pretty fast. Now, after a few days it is back to being pretty slow. Could this Chrome stuff be effecting my browser in an adverse way?

Hi.

When logged in to google (e.g., gmail) in one firefox tab, I am them auto-logged in to that same google account in any new tab or window I open. Is there a way to stop this?

I would like to be able to have one tab logged in to a google product (e.g., gmail, google calendar, youtube), but retain a "blank slate" when I open new tabs or windows, so that I can browse anonymously or log in to multiple different accounts (google or otherwise).

I have privacy badger and HTTPS everywhere installed in firefox, have set the browser to block all third party cookies, and to never remember history (high security settings across the board) . I tried enabling Multi-Account Containers, but I'm not sure how to use it and also suspect it is a more complicated functionality than I actually need.

I would imagine there has to be a way to "break" the connection between multiple open tabs or windows. Thanks!

On my Windows 10 PC, I use Thunderbird (TB) for four emails (3 are Gmail). For some reason one (and only one) of my Gmail accounts starting wanting password verification in TB. But when I click the 'next' button, it doesn't take me to the password page to confirm my password, it just erases my Gmail account name in the username field.

I'm not certain why it suddenly started needing password verification (and my other two Gmail accounts still don't). I've logged into the Gmail account on Google, and my password still works (haven't changed it). I updated TB to the latest version. I deleted the password in TB (hoping it would then let me reenter it). I finally deleted the Gmail account entirely from TB. When I try to add it back, it now only allows the inbox (not sent or templates folders). And it still keeps asking me to verify the Gmail password (but won't let me). I can see new emails received, but I can't send any.

Any suggestions?
