I tried to visit a website on a private network.

Firefox threw up a security warning about how the web page uses TLSv1.0.

I clicked on the "Enable TLS v1.0" button because I wanted to temporarily view the web page, so that I can look at the TLS certificate to debug an unrelated issue about the cert chain on this site.

Now I want to go back to the default settings, where Firefox blocks TLSv1.0.

How do I do that?

In about:config I looked at security.tls.version.min but it's still on the original value of 3. Yet Firefox is still letting me view that particular page over TLSv1.0 without the security warning.

I recently upgraded from TB 68 --> 78.2.2 and performed the migration of my Enigmail settings into TB. I can decrypt emails from others and send encrypted and signed emails with no problem. However, in my sent folder, as well as emails to all recipients, the subject is being replaced with "...". Once selected, it will decrypt and display the entire subject. How can I change my settings to never remove the subject?

The notes for e2ee within Thunderbird 78 (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/introduction-to-e2e-encryption) state that "The subject of the mail may also remain unprotected and easily readable, even when e2ee is used.", so I was expecting it would be visible.

Hopefully I am just missing a setting, but I don't see any in the End-to-End Encryption section within my Account Settings. TIA!

This lockwise related feature requires one to enter a computer password/pin etc to be able to see saved login passwords. This is something I have always wished FF had (like every other browser does) but was always told that it is not necessary or is silly since it is not very secure or some other nonsense. But is is useful since it makes snooping difficult which is good enough.

Anyway, obviously FF has come around to this viewpoint... but after finding that without warning it is no longer functioning on my browser and resetting firefox and restarts and everything, I see on the page below "This feature will be disabled for both macOS and Windows in Firefox version 76 and 77. Mozilla is planning improvements to this feature in Firefox 78."

Bizarre since according to the article it starts working in version 76. Starts working in 76 but has been disabled in 76 (plus 77 for good measure).

What? My question is why was this disabled for what's likely to be a while and is there anyway to override it? Can I bring it back with a pref change? Thanks!

I have added custom certificate authority to the Android system certificates store. But it seems that Firefox doesn't use native store unlike other browsers do. I have to click to advance and allow every time I visit our "unsafe" university web.

Why there is no option to use native Android certificates store or to install CA into browser? That's quite security issue.

I am trying to help my daughter figure out a problem she has with Firefox on her Windows 10 laptop. She has the latest version of Firefox installed.

Every time she starts Firefox, it starts in a private window. Even after closing it and opening a "normal" window, the choice to open the tabs from the last session is dimmed. There is no history.

I have checked her privacy and security settings and it's at the default position. It is not set to open in a private window, and it is not set to forget history.

I am baffled!

TB 72 running on Win10, 20 yrs on TB with absolutely no issues, suddenly asked for Master Password, tried all possible passwords for 20 yrs (Yes, I can do this; I am a nerd). TB Support says it's easy, just go to Tools ->Developer Tools-> Error Console, paste the expression: openDialog("chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul") and press the Evaluate button. No go. That's apparently to fix an earlier TB version. What do do now? Do I have to abandon TB after 20 yrs? Thanks very much for any help. Love, Chuck.

I have just upgraded from 68.12 to 78.2.2. I used Enigmail but I have migrated to the built-in openPGP. Everything runs as it should.

But it seems that my passphrase has been saved. In the old Enigmail, it used to ask for the passphrase regularly, which I found safer.

So in Thunderbird 78.2.2, is there a way to avoid the saving of the passphrase, or to define how long the passphrase should be saved (e.g. 15 min, session...)? If not, should I then use a master password to protect it? I cannot find the passphrase under saved passwords, so I am not sure where it is stored and therefore if the master password would protect the passphrase.

Thank you!

This was never an issue but the last 3 months all emails from a particular sending keep getting sent to spam. I have added the sender to my contact list. I keep marking the emails as "not junk" while they're in the spam folder and they get moved into the "inbox" but the next one that comes in goes straight to spam. What else can I do to get them to stop going into spam? I would think that after 3 months the adaptive system would have learned to adapt.

When I am logged in to my financial account and try to go to my Balances page, Firefox blocks the redirect. I cannot find any way to stop this, so have to hit the Allow button every time. Seems like a strange place for Firefox to be blocking a page from loading, especially since I rarely get that behavior anywhere else.

Hi all,

I'm a MacOS (v.10.15.6) user, and I've been trying to get rid of the "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" on FireFox (v.80.0.1) without any success. This is the detail of the "Enterprise Policy" that's blocking: ExtensionSettings {"{443830f0-1fff-4f9a-aa1e-444bafbc7319}":{"installation_mode":"blocked"},"{02274e0c-d135-45f0-8a9c-32b35110e10d}":{"installation_mode":"blocked"}}

What I have tried: - I have uninstalled and deleted all Avast (& other antivirus related apps - I just kept "Clean my mac" but I suppose that's not the core of the issue?) (binned & through a ~/Library/ search) - I quit all apps that seemed suspicious in the Activity Monitor - I have unistalled the previous version of FireFox (& deleted all packages found on ~/Library/ and reinstalled all again

Note: the extension seems to be applied only on FireFox as my Chrome browser seems to be running normally so far.

I've restared my Mac every time I'd do something to make sure it'd sync somehow but nothing works. I still get teh same "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" on my latest FireFox version (v.80.0.1).

What can I do? Thanks a lot!

Greetings! Each and every time I close out Firefox, it deletes my pop-up approved exceptions list. There are two sites I visit regularly that use pop-up windows for displaying information, and if I add them to the exceptions list, they are gone (along with any others) the next time I open Firefox. This doesn't seem like the type of thing that should get deleted with clear history on close settings. It is happening with version 80.0.1, and happened with the prior version. Any thoughts on what might be causing this and/or solutions would be most appreciated.

Hello Folks!

I recently attempted to install an OpenPGP key in Thunderbird. I had difficulties to figure out what exactly was expected from me and cancelled the installation. If I check for OpenPGP Key Manager there is nothing listed.

Now when I try to save a message as draft I get an error message: Error while saving draft - The configured key ID '0xTypeError: RNPLib is undefined' cannot be found on your keyring.

This is only happening for the account for which I started the process of installing a OpenPGP key. Other accounts that I have setup in Thunderbird are not suffering from that problem (e.g. I can save drafts). In the End-to-End Encryption settings for the account where I started the process I can't see any changes. It looks like the End-to-End Encryption settings for any other account where drafts do work.

What can I do to identify the files that contain keyring information that were never finalised?

Thanks for a short answer in advance.

Salut,

 Mathias
