This morning a technician from Dell used remote desktop control to resolve a problem with my PC (an Inspiron AIO FT7710, running on Windows 11). After that, I found that all my saved passwords to log into various on-line accounts (banking, Pandora, etc.) had disappeared. Is there any way to recover them? Thank you

TB 102.5.0 (64-bit) on Win10 I'm getting repeated notices that my e-mail accounts with Network Solutions don't have a proper "certificate" when I try to send an email. I get a popup window stating so, and asking me to "permanently" choose the exception. It doesn't matter how many times I tell the fool thing to accept the exception "permanently". I still keep getting the notice every few times. Since the glitch is not consistent, I don't have an image of one to put here. Not only that, I have to send the email twice after doing so. TB refuses to send the email the first time after choosing the exception, but allows it the second. I don't know anything about "certificates" and am sick of getting popup notices about them. I doubt that the problem is with Network Solutions email accounts. This reminds me of years ago, when I tried to upgrade to WinXP. It kept interrupting my work to give me popup security notices that I didn't understand and couldn't do anything about. If I remember correctly, I took it back to Sam's Club and replaced it with Win2000. Problem solved. Never mind that XP was supposed to be better. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I am working on development of a SaaS platform that will use a 3rd party chat bot for customer support. Enhanced tracking protection blocks the bot.

If I click the shield and use the toggle to turn off ETP the bot loads. So far so good. But we don't want our users to have to click the toggle every time they want support.

So I figured I would add exceptions to ETP. When I click the shield to see what is being blocked I see the bot URL. When I add the URL to the enhanced tracking protection exceptions whitelist the bot is still blocked. I also added our URL to the list. Still being blocked. I would expect to be able to see the bot if our URL and the blocked URL are both on the whitelist, but I don't.

Is the exceptions list working as intended and not meant to do what I think it is meant to do? Am I missing settings that I need to use differently? Any help appreciated. (Sorry, I can't do screenshots because we're still in development)

Hi,

my situation was like so: I am using Thunderbird 102.6.0 under an up to date Fedora 36. I have an email account registered into Thunderbird. I have an RSA key with a passphrase added which I use to sign an decrypt as needed. I use a master password.

That was the situation before today. No update to Thunderbird have been made since the issue, nor to the system (afaik). I can not sign and decrypt messages anymore through Thunderbird. For instance, when I seek to send a signed email Thunderbird gives me a popup with: `Unable to send the message, because there is a problem with your personal key.`. Signature verification still works so at least Thunderbird can access my public key.

I go to the Thunderbird `Account Settings` and under `End-To-End Encryption` I see that the selected personal key radio button is greyed out. It says that the private is not available or readable (I dont remember, the message disappeared when I selected a radio button repenting an other key in the list...).

I check the Thunderbird OpenPGP manager and see that there is indeed a key for the email address associated to the account (see the attached picture).

This key pair is valid enough so that I can manually encrypt and decrypt using the `gpg` command (using a terminal, not under Thunderbird).

Any idea why Thunderbird forgot about the private key ?

I've just installed the latest Thunderbird, using the default imap settings and my known good gmail password. When I press 'Done', Google asks me to log in and give permission to Thunderbird to access my gmail account. This goes fine, but Thunderbird then reports that the password is rejected. I know that it is good, and I can't see anything wrong. Everything seems to be set correctly and none of the help topics appears to give me a solution that I haven't already tried. Help please!

Hi,

The primary e-mail on my account has been hacked for over a decade. I just did a fresh install in Windows not realizing I wouldn't be able to sign in to my Firefox account using my current e-mail because apparently my current e-mail is "not the primary account holder e-mail". Now I imagine I would have added it as a backup e-mail for the case of if I couldn't access my primary e-mail (which as I've said I haven't been able to do since approximately 2011 or so) but there isn't even an option to send the confirmation to the backup e-mail in that case. I'm really tired of going through this on every website I signed up on prior to our e-mails getting hacked. Is there a way we can just change the owner to the other e-mail so I can get back into my account please?

Hi All,

Real quick one. I send a link everyday to people in my office to an Excel file stored on our S Drive.

I sent it to myself and clicking the link does nothing. It does work in Outlook

I've tried setting all 4 settings under network.protocol-handler.external- to true but hasn't worked.

Is this because it isn't a html file? I also tried via URN link rather than drive letter.

Thanks for the help.

If the recipient replies by clicking my reply-email, his reply will appear in the inbox in a thread along with the original email.

How can I avoid it so that all emails are listed as independent emails.

Hello,

My bank's website has a 2 page verification process for logging on. The first page is for the User ID and the second page is for the password.

Until just a few days ago, I could enter the first letter of my User ID into my bank's website login field, and FF would auto-fill the rest. Now when I enter that first letter, nothing happens. I then have to look up this info before I can continue. Luckily, the second page (for the password) is working just fine.

If I remember correctly, there has been a recent FF update. This new update may be the source of this issue.

Please help!

Thanks, Andre'a
