I am a home user with win 7 OS. In the DNS over HTTPS FAQ it says that

In addition, Firefox will check for certain functions that might be affected if DoH is enabled, including:

   Are parental controls enabled?
   Is the default DNS server filtering potentially malicious content?
   Is the device managed by an organization that might have a special DNS configuration? 

If any of these tests determine that DoH might interfere with the function, DoH will not be enabled. These tests will run every time the device connects to a different network.

Is there any way for me to find out if DOH is enabled or disabled by Firefox?

Hi Everyone,

Okay, here's what I'm look for. I have a iMac running macOS 10.15.6. My wife has a 15in Mac Book Pro with macOS 10.14.6. I update both machines to from TB 68.12 to TB 78.2.2 today. My wife's MBP will receive emails with not problems. However, I can not get emails to download to TB 78.2.2. Earlier this morning while I was still using TB 68.12, I got my email just fine ... 15 of them. We both use Yahoo as our email server. The message at the bottom of TB (lower left) is "myemailaddress:Connected to pop.mail.yahoo.com..." and it just stay like that but nothing downloads. If I go to Yahoo webmail, I have incoming emails like 10 right now. I was thinking about going back to 68.12, but read about some bad stuff that happens. I sure hope someone has a solution to this because it's causing me a lot of problems. Oh, I can send emails from TB 78.2.2, just can't receive emails. Update: After messing around in Account Settings I was able to get my messages by changing my Security Setting from TLS/SSL to None in Account Settings. Don't comfortable with doing that. Read a article that said to change security.TLS to 1. I have no idea how to do that on my Mac. I clicked on Troubleshooting under Help menu, but couldn't find a way to change the TLS setting. Again, my wife's mac book pro works just fine with macOS 10.14.6.

Thanks folks in advance!

just after midnight Sept 25 I could no longer send emails from two of my gmail addresses which are forwarded to my thunderbird. this happened over a year and a half ago and it turned out to be a security setting that needed to be lowered or removed on google but I went to google security and it too has changed in 18+ months. I didn't find anything that I could lower or remove.

I am guessing there was a update with higher security wall but I'm helpless. when I try to send an email I am asked to enter my password, same as last time. that is not the problem. I am signed in and receiving my mail just fine. this is the message "Login to server ____ with user name ____ failed. "

First I'd like to thank all of you volunteering to help answer these questions and your work in general on open source software. I'm a dedicated longtime Thunderbird/Firefox user and deeply appreciate it.

68.12.0 (32-bit) Windows 10

Here is my issue. Some time ago, (post upgrade to 68 I believe) Thunderbird began asking me for the password to my CalDav account at the beginning of each session. It also does not ask me if I want to remember it in any way. However, the entry does exist in the password manager and it is the right pw. It was not inconvenient enough to research at the time so I didn't look into it. But now that I am going through a regularly scheduled password change on all of my accounts, I've discovered that it wasn't just a CalDav issue, but effects any password I change.

So I have to enter each password of each account that I've changed upon booting up a new session. In looking at the password manager, I noticed there aren't any new entries since mid-2019 (which isn't surprising because I'm not offered the option of saving the password when I enter it). So I manually updated one of my standard imap accounts that I changed in the password manager, rebooted, and Thunderbird still asked for the password, as if it wasn't recognizing the password manager at all. To test, I deleted the entry in password manager and restarted the program. It asked for the password for that account again, but no option to save it. Now that account doesn't exist in the password manager at all.

Some other details: I am using the "master password" option. Also have Lightning 68.12 installed.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!

In the DNS over HTTPS FAQ it is mentioned that: As art of our continuing strategy to carefully measure the benefits and impact of DoH, we are currently focused on releasing this feature in the US only. Does it means that my settings will not be valid?

Hi,

Recently upgraded from ESR 68.12 to ESR 78.3 I have over 2000 passwords on my Corporate desktop Firefox account and I find I'm unable to access these in anything like a timely fashion. The new Lockwise password manager UI does not appear to be able to display a LIST of passwords based on usernames, date last used, date last changed, urls etc. Is it possible to get a list view instead of the current one, or will I have to downgrade back ESR 68.12 ?

Thanks Bob

Hi,

Since the lastest 79.0.5 Firefox for Android version was installed on my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 4), autofilling connexion fields (logins + passwords) on every websites I visit is not possible anymore.

All logins and passwords are still there, and Firefox still maintains the list up to date (if I enter a wrong password for example, FF proposes to update its list). But this list isn't usable anymore for autocompletion.

This page on Mozilla support is not up to date on this purpose, because the switch to activate autofill function has disapeared from this version :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/logins-sync-autofill-saving-firefox-preview#w_turn-on-autofill

Here is a screenshot of what I see (french version), and no switch there...

Is it a bug, and how to get it back ? Thank you for your help.

What I believe to be a mozilla site "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/" has all the older FF versions but when I downloaded the Mac OS version 81.0 which is the en-US version it does not have the new credit card feature and it also does not have D.O.H. active by default.

The sha256 hash is c4975a1a73dd1976e1f58cf5822921d25f2fb4a0e092897037e039d7ac6b8a67

It should be en-US but it does not have the new credit card feature in the menu. Why? Is FTP site no longer valid?

Logins and Passwords Ask to save logins and passwords for websites Autofill logins and passwords Save History

All the logins and passwords that I want to keep appear in the list and most of the websites still log in as normal BUT there are a couple who insist I re-enter username and password and I don't want to keep having to do this. I have tried clearing all cookies and saved log ins for the problem websites and then re entered them after ticking the login/password option and it works fine. However when I end Firefox and then log in again these websites then insist I re enter everything. I have even deleted version 81 and managed to re-install an earlier version but that still fails.

Hi,

Ever since upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on both my laptop and PC, I've had trouble accessing Steam's websites due to bad certificate domains. I've included a screencap of the error message.

I tried contacting Steam about this problem, since its only on their websites the problem is. They told me that there was no error on their side, and that they suspect that I don't have an "up-to-date trusted root authority" stored. I don't know what that is, and had no luck contacting Windows about the problem. So far I haven't seen this problem appear anywhere I've looked for help, so I am trying posting myself here.

I have already tried: - Reinstalling the certificate automatically for the Steam.exe file - Flushing DNS config // Also tried connecting through Google's DNS server - Repairing Steam install (in case the problem came from the program) - Permanently disabling VPN software and AntiVirus programs from interfering with anything Steam-related - Resyncronizing time on the PC (almost the only solution I could find on the web, still didn't work)

I hope someone can help me.

Since the Migration away from Enigmail to Thunderbird 78 (some Migration-Assistant did automatically start and failed after I did not remember one of my passwords for a gpg key)... I have no idea where to correct the issue.

I can nowhere see the available/imported keys also the public keys from friends seem to be missing and i cannot send them encrypted mails anymore.

The thing that drives me nearly insane is that I can not find ANY menu or menuentry that provides any access to the OpenPGP information Thunderbird 78 is expected to handle now.

What is going on here? Am I an idiot suddenly in operating my mailclient or is this menu or menuentry simply not existing? How can it be that such an essential thing is not easily accessible to me?

I am puzzled, angry and deeply disappointed, because I like my software to be open source, but this experience drives me away. And I even needed to create a new firefox account to even give feedback an ask this question.

Nevertheless I hope someone can help me with this. Right. now my mailclient is useless to me. And I am not the one who is responsible for this mess.

Evidently when setting up Firefox and importing from Chrome my ID's and passwords, there were some pretty old ones in there. Now with Firefox when I go to a website to login it presents a popup offering a selection of saved ID/PWs for this site. On Chrome, and even Edge, I could just arrow down to an old one and when highlighted hit Delete to clean these out, without having to search for them in a different place to manage that.

How can I do this the easy way with Firefox - an extension or option somewhere?
