Before a recent update, I had my xnew tab page" set up the way I wanted it, so it only showed a few pinned bookmarks and nothing else. After the update, my new tab page is now showing items from my history after my pinned bookmarks.

I have the "recently visited" toggle turned off in "customize homepage", but they're still there.

So, how do I get rid of this clutter?

Hello,

I was having trouble logging in because I thought I had disconnected my authentication app, but I eventually found it (so I am able to log in now). Before I figured this out, however, I tried to use my recovery key to log in. I found the text file that had my recovery key '[Email] Firefox Recovery Key.txt' (from 2019) and when I tried to use this, it didn't work. I noticed that the recovery page asks for a recovery 'code' instead of 'key' and when I was able to log in, it said I had never set up a Recovery Key.

Just wanted to flag the issue in case there's a reason why old Recovery Keys no longer work. It certainly could have been my error, but since I had the file, it seemed like it should've worked.

I'm using Thunderbird for gmail in IMAP mode. In my IMAP folder, I have a Junk subfolder, and in my Gmail subfolder I have a Spam subfolder. What is the difference between these? Does Gmail determine Spam, and Thunderbird determine Junk? Are BOTH Spam and Junk used for the Thunderbird adaptive junk filter log?

Gmail with Thunderbird using OAUTH2 - not Connecting nor creating a Cookie

This is my first post. But I have been reading and benefiting from all the expertise I have found here for many years! Thanks to all!

Trying to plan ahead for the Gmail OAUTH2 change, I upgraded to Tbird 91.9.0.

My Account Settings all transferred to the new version. I do have multi Gmail accounts, as well as other email accounts, but from other posts here, this should matter.

While I am a long term Tbird user, I am a newbie with OAUTH2. I can't seem to connect. So I am writing here for help!

My setup: - Dell notebook running W10 - internet connection strong - am using a Netgear Nighthawk Hotspot Router, which works great with

    everything else, so I really doubt that is an issue

- testing without a firewall; running McAfee - resetting Tbird account back to "Normal Password", then Gmail connects

Incoming Server set to IMAP: imap.gmail.com:993 w SSL/TLS and OAuth2 Outgoing: smtp.gmail.com:465 w SSL/TLS and OAuth2

I have been consistently testing with the same gmail account: - YES, I know my password; it works with both the Gmail web interface,

   or after going back to "Normal Password" instead of OAUTH2

- allow any Alert emails via Gmail Web Interface, repeatedly. - Ran Captcha ... many times! In case someone else reading here needs this, it is here: https://accounts.google.com/b/0/DisplayUnlockCaptcha and you must be logged into the Gmail Web Interface when running this. I have learned to take a pause after running this, for it do its thing.

If Toad-Hall is reading this, I found your list of steps here very helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375558 Worth repeating for others who are struggling, like me.

As recommended here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373706 Cookies: all cleared Remembered Passwords: all cleared

Also looked at this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375702 Originally, my cookies WERE blocked. I did need to change my Web Content as recommended in this post:

   Selected: Remember web sites and links I've visited
   Selected: Accept cookies from sites
   Accept third-party cookies: Always
   Keep until : they expire
   Not selected: 'Send web sites 'Do not track'..... 

Also: In Privacy and Security -> Web content -> Exceptions, added: https://accounts.google.com set to 'Allow' and Saved Changes. Then exit Tbird, took a short pause, started Tbird again, per the advice to properly update the files.

Should I be doing BOTH of these? This post shows options: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatic-conversion-google-mail-accounts-oauth20 So if I Select to accept cookies, should I also set the Exception??? I have tested various combinations of these settings, but not seeing a cookie.

In Tbird, when testing to connect, I see:

"Sign in with your Google Account" Enter my account password (I see an error msg here when I typo the password, no error when entered correctly) Also, have checked "Stay Signed In" while trying to Authorize, as recommended. then click Allow on the second screen.

After a few seconds, keep seeing popup in lower right corner of screen: "Authentication failure while connecting to server imap.gmail.com" Sometimes, this msg does not popup, which seems odd to me, but it still fails: Cookies: still empty Password: still empty

I keep updating and reading and updating the setups and testing again, but no cookies for me!


I admit I have gotten off track, testing and reading posts:

Thought my problem might involve Certificates for a while, but now do not think OAUTH2 is using Certificates. Right?

Thought for a bit it might be Javascript disabled, but I am NOT seeing the popup window that shows this error, from this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1373379 refers to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1286410 Did find my way to Config editor: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349136 Followed this advice: "Click the 3-bar menu icon, Preferences, and find Config. editor at the bottom of the General section. Or, type editor in the search box at the top of Preferences." Then searched for "Javascript" and found most of settings were true, like javascript.enabled is "true". Should everything that a search for javascript finds be set to true? Since I do not see the error msg, I believe this is not my problem.


Stans posted another helpful summary here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1375538 "After you've changed your accounts to OAuth2, delete all records of your Google Account passwords from Thunderbird's password vault (Saved Passwords). With OAuth2, your passwords are not stored by Tbird. Instead, an OAuth2 token (a long string of meaningless characters) is stored in the password field. That's what you should see after completing the OAuth2 process for each of your accounts. You have to do it twice, once for incoming and once for outgoing server. Also, you must allow cookies in Thunderbird's Preferences, otherwise it won't work."

If I am following this correctly, after testing to try and authenticate, I should see a Cookie and a Saved Password being created but they are not.

Think this is my problem!


In Gmail web interface, I am not sure of some settings:

In Manage Your Google Account -> Security:

1. Should Sign-in 2-step verification be on/off? (its off) 2. Third Party apps w access shows Tbird (think this is new, don't recall it before) 3. Allow Less Secure App: turn off (was On for normal pswd; either way fails w OAUTH2) (think I have tested all combinations of the above, with no success) I welcome suggestions on how I should set these to connect with OAUTH2.

I feel like I am getting close here, but I am stuck. Is there anything else, maybe something I have not heard about, like Captcha, that I should try?

Have I missed a setting somewhere? Suggestions???

Hi I work for in a corporate environment and due to security policies our employees and staff members are not allowed to see their thunderbird passwords

This however is an issue considering that you can just go to privacy and security and select show passwords and get immediate access to all passwords. Primary passwords are not ideal either considering the employees can't know them as well and you need your pp to sign into thunderbird in the first place.

I have tried disabling the show passwords button by adding the pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords;0 setting to the config editor as a boolean and setting it to true but the 'Show Passwords' button is still accessible.

Is there any way of hiding stored passwords in thunderbird without having to log out of the account?

My email address and password were hacked today, so I can't get access to Thunderbird. I contacted my Webmail provider (Telstra - Australia) who have issued a new password that works in Webmail. However, apparently TB is only updated(?) once a month, and until then, my password isn't recognised by TB, so I can't get access to send and receive emails. I hope that makes sense. My questions are: is it true that I may have to wait up to 1 month to get this sorted; if an update is needed, when is the next date this will be done by TB; and is there any way that I can get my password sorted before the next update.

A probably related issue is that my Instagram account was hacked about 3 days ago and I got a scam email saying that my laptop had been accessed.

Dear all, please cannot find help for this topic.

I am using Thunderbird on all my equipment, I install it to my friends, on every Windows that went under my hands.

On every installation I have enabled spam detection: Enable adaptive junk mail control for this account WITH THIS SETTING: Do not automatically mark mail as junk if the sender is in (Personal address book, Collected addresses) - this settings has to "whitelist" whole Personal addresses and Collected addresses, too.

Then, in global settings I checked these checkboxes: When I mark messages as junk: Move them to account's "Junk" folder Mark messages determined to be Junk ak read Enable adaptive junk filter logging

Despite of these settings, Thunderbird from time to time, detects messages as Junk from whitelisted senders, too! It's very unreliable, when you mail with someone on daily basis and suddenly, some important message fall into Junk folder from this sender. Of course you have no reason to check the Junk folder for addresses from whitelist. Has anybody experiences with this Thunderbird bug?

I've been working through Thunderbird for a few years now but recently I've received word from a client that emails are apparently being rerouted and read through Iceland. Here is what they are getting:

I don't know if this is happening on his end or mine and I don't know how to check and confirm. It has happened when sending emails through two Gmail accounts through Thunderbird and I have two factor authentication so I don't believe the email accounts themselves are compromised. My best guess is that the issue is an email client, either mine or his. Is there any way to confirm?

Hello,

When accessing my Old Navy account they require a 2 step process for Logging In. Once I click on the login button it takes me to a page where it asks for my email. Here's where I hit the issue: FireFox Password Manager does not fill this in for me; not even the auto-fill works here. After I enter my email it then takes me to a page where my password is filled in (yay!). I'm glad that it at least fills in the password but I'd like to not have to fill in my email on the previous page.

I tried to create a new entry in Password Manager but it won't take the entire url; it shortens it. This url changes each time I go thru the process which complicates everything. I was hoping to take one of those urls (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com/my-account/sign-in?flowId=wJb1e) but it shortened it to just (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com). I even tried creating a new entry without the last few characters (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com/my-account/sign-in?flowId=) but again it shortened it.

Is there a way to get FF Password Manager to provide auto-fill of my email address?

Thanks, Andre'a

I have tried:

I went to sign in to a website today and could not - nothing pertinent would load. I disabled ad blocking and tracking blocking extentions one by one in an attempt to figure out which of them might be the problem. When that didn't work, I disabled all of them together - still the page would not load. I then went to MS Edge, and the page loaded fine - I have only one ad-blocker extension on MS Edge. That left me to believe that the issue may have been that I am blocking ALL 3rd party cookies in FF. I decided that WAS the problem after returning to FF and removing the checkmarks from Tracking Content, Cryptominers and Fingerprinters.

I called the website to talk to technical support. I wanted to find out what 3rd parties were involved so I could decide if I wanted to turn off the blocking of those cookies while using that website.

I was told the company and it's website are not affiliated with any 3rd parties, and so their website does not attempt to set any 3rd party cookies, the user does not need to allow/accept 3rd party cookies while on their site, and therefore, my blocking of 3rd party cookies would have no affect on whether or not I can access their website. INSTEAD... I was told that the 3rd party cookies are in my browser, a part of my browser, so that my browser, and in this case, specifically Mozilla, can keep track of my movements/activities and taylor advertising and other such crap to me.

Now...I did not think my browser actually cared where online I go unless it's one of those websites that FF will block my progress to, advise of an issue and ask if I really wanna keep on going. I thought a browser was simply the vehicle, like a car, that gets you to the store, and it's the store that has the salepeople trying to get you to buy stuff. If Mozilla is setting [tracking and 3rd party] cookies for Mozilla's benefit, why would users be given the tools to block cookies and trackers and other such invasions? Or are these tools just there to make the user feel like they have control, and in reality those tools/settings mean absolutely nothing?

Am I wrong? Or did the individual I spoke with just not know what the bloody hell they were talking about?? 'Cause if they are right...then I'm VERY disappointed in Mozilla and FF. I've been using FF for MANY years because I had more control than what users of Microsoft browsers (and a few others) have.

WHO is setting the cookies? _____________________________________________ Win10 Home, Vs 21H2 (OS Build 19044, 1645) Mozilla Firefox, 100.0 (64-bit)

Greetings all...

I have a combination of MacOS Monterey, OpenSC 0.22.0 and a Cert Card/reader. I have the CA root imported and trusted for the cert card and the config works perfectly in Firefox v100 (sees my certs on the card, prompts for card login at startup of Firefox, etc)

In Thunderbird it doesn't work...in that Firefox will not accept the card based certs for S/MIME.

In Thunderbird I can see the card and reader under S/MIME Devices and I can login successfully to the card. In Manage S/MIME Certificates I can see my two card based certificates under "Your Certificates".

If I hit "Select" on either "Personal Certificate for digital signing" or "Personal certificate for encryption" Thunderbird tells me "Certificate Manager can't locate a valid certificate that can be used to digitally sign your messages with an address of <me@myemailaddress.tld>"

that's not my real email ;)

If I view the certificates my proper email address is listed and the card based certificates are shown with Key Usages of "Digital-Signature, Non-Repudiation" and Extended Key Usages of "Client Authentication, E-mail Protection, Smartcard Login"

This key card and driver (OpenSC) works perfectly on Firefox on this machine. Thunderbird doesn't like it. The Tools/Developer/Error Console shows no related errors.

What am I missing? Can anyone suggest what Thunderbird isn't liking here?

Many thanks!
