Hello,

How can I import a root CA certificate to Firefox for Android? I tried uploading the certificate to a webserver and navigating to it with Firefox for Android, but it does not work, either it downloads the file or display its PEM text content, no import prompt.

I have Firefox 84.0.1 on Linux Mint, and I have filled in the information for one credit card. When I hover over credit card fields on retail site forms, I usually (but not always) get a pop-up "hint" showing the card number and/or expiration date ... but I cannot get the browser to actually fill in the form field. I've tried clicking, hitting Enter, hitting Tab, but nothing actually puts the information from the pop-up into the form field. Any hints as to what part of the incantation I am missing would be appreciated.

I find that images generally show on webpages such as the front page of a news site. However, when I click into a specific article, the image which is usually near the start of an article in a lot of cases does not show (so it's not a "always never shown" situation); it's as if it's been removed from the webpage syntax i.e. there's no white space section showing something is missing. One example (of many I could include!) is https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/phonics-revolution-the-new-sound-of-reading-in-the-nations-schools/7A5UVZ55NAOJEQACLKELCNEU6U/ I verified there are images there by restarting Firefox with Add-ons disabled (which starts Firefox in Safe Mode), and also by opening in another browser. So I went thru and disabled *all* add-ons and restarted Firefox. Images still don't show! These missing images only show when I run Firefox in Safe Mode.

In the back of my mind, there is/used-to-be an option to limit the size of images on a page(?) but I can't find any option now. I have also refreshed Firefox (a number of times; including a total de-install, reboot, re-install) but the problem remains. .. What am I missing? I'd like to be able to see these images.

Thanks.

Hi, we want to implement gpo settings with policies.json in our organisation. We use Ubuntu 20.04 with Firefox 85.0.1 for our desktop clients.

https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#primarypassword policies.json {

 "policies": {
   "PrimaryPassword": true
 }

}

This setting does not have any effect. I've tried it with my old profile (with already saved certs and passwords (but no primary pw)) as well as a comlete new one. Every other policy like extension management does work.

Kind Regards Rene

Hello,

I'm using Thunderbird 78.7.1 on Debian Bullseye (GNOME).

I'm trying to import an existing GPG key, but importing hangs after selectig the key file. The window with "Importing your OpenPGP keys..." is visible all the time and nothing happens. No message in logs, no additional messages on command line when used wiht --verbose.

Strangely, I successfully imported this key on another machine on the same sytem (Debian Bullseye, GNOME).

Is there a specific dependency on a system package/library or something that isn't listed on .deb dependencies list? How can I debug this?

Kind Regards -- Kamil

I have deleted all my saved logins and passwords from Mozilla thinking they were all synchronized, and stored in the cloud. However, after reinstalling Mozilla on my PC, I logged in again and noticed that I only had the very old logins and passwords. Out of about 190 deleted logins, I only retrieved 58, most of them with old, inactive passwords. Looks like the recent logins had not been synchronized. Recently I changed most of my passwords to very strong ones, about 15 character long, and very complicated. Is there any way of getting the recent logins and passwords back? I would really appreciate any help.

Aren't containers supposed to be not sharing the history among other things with each other. Here is what I have noticed: - Urls from a different container appear in another container when typing the address. - Urls from a container appear when typing the address in a non container mode. Both the cases somehow undermine the whole container thing. I don't know if someone else has noticed such things or not, but they do seem strange to me. Hence the question, do containers share history? If so, then the containers just become a gimmick.

https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

Hi there, I would like to “generally accept all cookies” for future surfing through the internet. I found this description (see below), but it doesn’t seem to work (help might me older before latest browser updates), could someone tell me how to set Firefox to accept all cookies? Thank you.

1. Click the Tools menu from the top toolbar. 2. Choose Options. 3. Click the Privacy tab. 4. Under "History" select "Use custom settings for history" from the drop-down menu beside "Firefox will." 5. Ensure that the checkboxes for "Accept cookies from sites" and "Accept third-party cookies" are both checked. 6. Click OK.

I have been using Thunderbird successfully for many years and use the latest version on my desktop pc (Win 10, 64 bit) for various gmail en other email accounts. However, when I changed my password in Gmail, I couldn't implement this in Thunderbird and I sadly decided to delete this account, including smtp and passwords for this account and tried to set it up again. This fails I get a message that username, password or settings are wrong. Tried several times, without success. However I decided to try it out on my laptop after downloading Thunderbird and I was able to set the accounts up without any problem, went very easy, so there seems not to be an issue on the data I tried to use. So I am stuck, could it be that somewhere old imaps are blocking it, if so what could I do, if not what else is the solution? If possible like to avoid deleting Thunderbird, since I have made a lot of local files which I do not want to loose or have to recover apart from the other working email accounts. The problem solving page shows different account numbers: 2, 8, 10 and 14

account2 (none) Local Folders Geen Normaal wachtwoord account8 (pop3) pop3.telfort.nl:995 SSL/TLS Normaal wachtwoord smtp.telfort.nl:25 Geen Normaal wachtwoord true account10 (imap) imap.googlemail.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.gmail.com:465 SSL/TLS OAuth2 true account14 (imap) imap.gmail.com:993 SSL/TLS OAuth2 smtp.gmail.com:465 SSL/TLS OAuth2 true

Would be pleased if someone could give advice, regards Klaas

This is on fIrefox version 85 in Linux.

Last week I was discouraged to find out that my cache was taking up 2 GB of space, some YEARS old. So I decided to purge it and then keep it clean.

The cache gets stored in two places: the linux home .cache folder AND the firefox profile's cache2 folder.

To keep things REALLY clean I checked the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checkbox, then manually enter the exceptions for web sites I do not want to block. Then I specifically added sites I really despise (google, for example) to the block list.

The data still gets cached, even after closing and reopening the browser the cache is still there (verified both via about:cache and by just looking in the folders).

Even when I purge the cache completely, verify nothing is there (about:cache) after deleting the cache folders from the hard drive, it keeps coming back, like a bad computer virus.

My interim solution is a crontab that runs every hour to clear old cache, but that seems silly. Do these security settings actually do anything? What am I doing wrong?

I have Bitdefender total security and several times per minute for hours per day I get messages that firefox is trying to connect to an untrusted source and I'm wondering if you can help me get it to stop. It seems to happen primarily when I am using NordVPN with a United States IP address.

This is the message I continue to get from Bitdefender:

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to trends.newsmaxwidget.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.


I don't know what this trends.newsmaxwidget.com certificate is or where to find it to delete it. Can it be deleted? Is this a problem with my VPN?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
