I don't want to use passkeys, and it seems that every site is checking browser support and wasting my time with passkey prompts before allowing me to log in with a password. How do I disable passkey support in Firefox?

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

This is outright censorship which is something [edited] do.

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

Please someone help me with this. My primary email has been breeched and because I was honest with the service --instead of just saying I need help resetting my password. Thay are asking me to send them a copy of my drivers' license and a photo "selfie" of myself to recover my account.

This is where I draw the line -- all invasions of privacy we have learned to live with but not this -- I could give them the transaction ID from my last Payment from Paypal period -- but that was not good enough. If I was being deceitfull I could easily provide the crdentials they ask for and it could all be fake; so I told them to get lost as I was paying for the Premium service anyway. I can contintue to use that as my ID but sonner or later someone is going to want to send me a code there and I can't retrieve it. Tonight they did not ask so I was able to get in here.

Everybody has a place to change your password but few have a place to change your sign-in ID. If I can get back into Firefox with a new ID and set 2 step validation I shouls be okay as faras the average user gors. The other option that I know of is to stary a new Firefox account. I alread have a lot of people and business's that I have to get my new email to.

Thanks To Anyone with any ideas.

Sincerely Paul

I've lost my password to log into Thunderbird. There is no provision to change it, and it wasn't saved by Thunderbird password manager. There MUST be a way around this problem. Please help.

Recently my Thunderbird started asking for my passwords every time I opened it (I have multiple Hotmail accounts). After I added the passwords it would keep asking for them over and over again (they were ALL correct). I have now uninstalled and re-installed the latest version of Thunderbird and only added 1 account back in and it still keeps doing the same. The password is visible and correct in the saved passwords section. I am now having to use another client (Outlook,which works correctly, but isnt a patch on Thunderbird) Running MACOS 12.7.3 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

So Mozilla supports privacy rights- and I've supported Mozilla for that reason- but they want Whatsapp to be censored for "misinformation" ? How does that go together? Whatsapp was supposed to be encrypted and not even Whatsapp was supposed to know the content of messages. How would they know about misinformation? And how do they get to decide what's misinformation now?

My Thunderbird email app quit receiving new messages 6/13/2023 and I've had to use a different way to get emails on my laptop (note that it works fine on my pc) I finally got around to searching for answers and noticed a Mozilla Support thread that mentioned if the Connection Security is turned to NONE then messages are received. This worked for me too, but it doesn't feel safe to keep the security turned off. What can I do?
