Latest Firefox update 104.0 started displaying "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised" again after previously being disabled. It's an annoying message that pops up on my intranet logins and I want it disabled again. I did the usual in about:config and set security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled to False and security.insecure_password.ui.enabled to False like previously, but the message is still there. It seems that latest update is forcing this message and ignoring the settings to disable them. Please help!

I have 2-Step verification on Gmail. When I go to log in I get this: Insert your security Key into the USB. I cancel out of it and get this: Your phone can’t locate your device. Move your phone closer to the device where you’re signing in, and then try again. I "Try another way" and I try to get a "one-time security code" and it forwards me to a website where the cycle begins again. If I try "Auto-recovery" it sends me to google. I can access Gmail on the same machine via Chrome, but would rather not. I can also get it on Firefox on my phone.

I did recently turn on two-step and it asked if I wanted a key, and I thought it might mean Google Authentication, I think it meant a USB key.

Any thoughts? I rather not give up Firefox.

Hi everyone,

I set up my Firefox for Android to delete cookies and cache when I click on "Close".

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

Thunderbird REPEATEDLY Keeps Marking Non Junk As Junk giving me a daily headache in manually marking them as NON junk. I very rarely receive junk email, and those I do receive stick out like a sore thumb. I'm capable of deciding myself what is and is not junk. How to TOTALLY disable junk filtering? I mean TOTALLY, not the "usual" fixes given which don't work. There must be something in the config editor I can adjust, surely. Thank You Regards George

Hi - I work from home and for the past few years have used Firefox as my preferred browser, with bookmarks and passwords all saved to my account.

My employer uses "Duo" authentication to sign into applications.

This used to work with Firefox but not it has stopped working. I get prompted to sign in but my details are recognised and it just keeps asking me to sign in. When I neter them the browser keeps balnking them out.

This works on Chrome so I know it must be something to do with Firefox.

I really don't want to change browsers but if this ca't be resolved I'll have to stop using Firefox and delete it.

I received an email from my email people at mail.com saying thunderbird will soon be unable to receive emails, here is the gist of the email. I'd appreciate some advice on what to do, I have looked in the settings and am unsure what to do.

We are contacting you because one or more of your devices or programs uses the TLS 1.0 and/or TLS 1.1 encryption protocols to connect to our mail.com email servers, or is using an unencrypted connection. This involves either access via SMTP (sending emails) or retrieval via POP3/IMAP (receiving emails).

Unfortunately, the TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 encryption protocols are outdated and no longer meet current security standards. To protect your email communications, soon we will no longer allow access to our mail.com servers with these outdated protocols. Unencrypted access will also no longer be possible.

What does this mean for you?

After the protocols have been deactivated, the transfer of emails between your affected device or program and our mail.com servers will no longer work; i.e. no emails will be transmitted to or from your mail.com email account using TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1. Furthermore, unencrypted SMTP/IMAP/POP3 connections will no longer function. In other words, as of Oct. 5, 2022, it will only be possible to connect if TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.3 encryption is in place.

The following devices or programs may be affected:

  • Third-party email programs such as Outlook, Thunderbird or pre-installed apps in which you have set up your mail.com email account.

The only thing stopping me from switching to FireFox is this issue, whenever I try to enable 2-factor-auth I keep getting a message saying "Incorrect two-step authentication code".

I tried restarting my PC, restarting my phone, used 3 different auth apps, restarted my router, used a VPN, cleared cache and cookies, tried enabling it from a different browser, tried using a different phone, tried enabling it on a different account, and nothing fixed the issue, I keep getting the same error message "Incorrect two-step authentication code"

at this point I'm 99% sure it's a server sided issue.

help me, this is taking way too long to just activate 2-factor-authentication :(

Recently ... ... ... about the same time I got a message concerning Thunderbird that certain systems will --- as of Oct 5 --- not allow e-mail transfers between the TB e-mail client and their systems due to TB [supposedly] using the older "TLS 1.0 and 1.1" encryption protocols, I got this message when I logged on to my primary e-mail server "MAIL.COM", so to check my e-mail and spam filters on their system, using Firefox 104.0.2:


This is what I get when I first log on:

Your browser is not supported.

We generally support the following browsers: Google Chrome, the latest version of Safari, Internet Explorer 11 and later, Firefox from version 33, Opera from version 10. To fully utilize the functionalities of your mail.com mailbox, we recommend using the latest version of your browser. Download Browser for free

The mail.com mailbox is also available with limited functionality.

(The browser they offer shows only for Google and Android Apps. Not for a "DESKTOP" version, to note.)


When I am logged in, I "AM" limited to "JUST" the e-mail section.

LUCKILY, I do not use their "CLOUD" or "CALENDAR" or other features, or I would "ALREADY" be blocked out of using such.

That FF does use 1.2 and 1.3, yet I "AM getting the above message and "AM" being restricted by "MAIL.COM" due to it claiming FF is NOT using the newer protocols, is there a fix to clear this.

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???
