I've added https://x.com as an exception site but it is still blocked.

This is outright censorship which is something fascists do.

Tell me how to fix your browser so I may access x.com again or I stop using Firefox forever.

How do I disable automatic translation of Thunderbird messages by Deep-L (or any other machine translator)? This morning I received an email from a family member, written in German. Underneath the original message was an automated translation into English by Deep-L. I didn´t ask for this translation. I speak German as a second language, as well as other languages, and I enjoy using my linguistic abilities. Furthermore, I don´t like my private messages being passed to a database without my permission. If I want a translation of a message, I´ll ask for it.

This is evidently a new, annoying feature. I had an email exchange in German with someone just a few weeks ago without this intervention. I have tried searching the settings tab on Thunderbird, but have not discovered anything about Translation settings (not under Language settings, as far as I can see).

How do I disable Thunderbird sending emails for unwanted translation? Thank you for your assistance.

I want to use the Ome.tv web site to video chat but it keeps giving me this message:

"You have denied access to your devices. Your partners will not be able to see and hear you"

I've tried everything to get them to work but to no avail. I've also tried editing the settings for my camera and microphone in the Permissions section and that doesn't work, either. Firefox will NOT allow me to add website exceptions to the Settings window when I specify a website. WHY? This is crap. Firefox used to be such a good browser, but it has become so user-unfriendly. This issue should be easy to fix but Firefox won't allow me to make any changes.

I get this message from Gmail when I try to print or open in a new tab.

"Grrr! A popup blocker may be preventing the application from opening the page. If you have a popup blocker, try disabling it to open the window."

I can not find a way to fix this and did not have this problem with the previous version.

Downloads from almost every source are not downloaded. I don't get a pop up to allow me to download "questionable" files. This was not always the case with Firefox. Chrome allows me to download same files- no problems. Where can I change the settings to allow me to download (maybe after I receive a "warning")

Since within no more than two hours after the validity of a new security certificate began I could no longer receive emails in Thunderbird (although I can in other email programs or webmail) I keep getting asked to add a security exception but cannot do so. The certificate and the pop-up screen are attached. The location shown is that of my service provider. I am using Thunderbird 115.7.0 in Windows 10. What can I do?

This is so very simple and so the fact that it seems impossible to get a straight answer makes me instantly suspicious. Here is the question: What is my location? Simple! In other words, I have Mozilla Firefox installed on a physical device, which HAPPENS to be a desktop computer, not a mobile phone, etc. In other words, it stays here. So why do alllllll the sites act as though I am literally 930 miles...from my actual, physical location! I have NO VPN running...none. Unfortunately, Firefox is using Google location services, WHICH IS THE PROBLEM. I just installed Firefox, instead of Chrome, to solve that problem. I guess THAT was a stupid move, Firefox is worse!

There needs to be a manner in which the USER can INPUT THEIR LOCATION. I'm not trying to "trick" anyone...I'm actually trying to give people ACCURATE INFORMATION which apparently is beyond the capabilities of the internet, to provide.

I have spent the last TWO HOURS trying to find an answer to what should be a simple problem, and it seems not to exist!

I need to find out WHERE Firebird lists my email account PASSWORD.

I do NOT want to reset my password.

I simple need to know WHAT my password is, and since I set up the account [actually a few accounts] several years ago, my notes are evidently null and void, because none of those passwords seem to work.

My email is through verizon.net, which is one of the problems because they gave all of their email coltrol to AOL, which thouroughly sucks, and they seem not to have anyone who speaks fluent English who can assist me in FINDING the current password!

If ANYONE can help, it would be most greatly appreciated!!

Suddenly today my Thunderbird email account on my desktop won't send or receive mails until I enter the password. When I add in the correct password it doesn't accept it but just comes back asking for it again. I suspect it is best to change my password but don't know how to do that. Incidentally the account is working fine on my phone and tablet with the same password but not on my desktop. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I'm using Thunderbird 115.7.0 (64 bits). Cannot send messages from my email account: katy.vandenhoek@gmail.com. It says it cannot make connection to server smtp.gmail.com. Receiving emails is OK. The other emailaccounts are working OK. Looks like there is something wrong with the authentification. Reïnstalling Thunderbird didn't help.
