Firefox is not remembering the cookies and data of websites that I have saved under Exceptions. These sites are saved under Exceptions but I still have to log in every single time I access those sites, regardless of the fact that are saved to the list.

I need to show the senders email address in the list of columns displayed. I have already unchecked the box in Tools--Options-Display-Advanced [to show only display names]. I have also already been using the Show Address Only plugin which worked for many version of Thunderbird, but it no longer works. [I'm using Windows 10 x64, Thunderbird latest 68.6.0 x32] I sent an email to the developer [in Russia?] today asking if he is going to be updating it to support versions 68.0.* +. However, I really think this should be a feature in EVERY email client. It is an aspect of 'email.' Anyway, I do thank you for such a great plugin regardless and hope my suggestion/request raises a discussion somewhere :). P.s. Just realized this is going to community, not the staff necessarily so just pretend you're hired for a few min. :P

If I missed a way in settings to make this happen currently, my apologies, and please let me know how.

Thanks again!

More and more sites are starting to "hide" behind cloudfare and such like which means it wants to re-load the web page automatically. Firefox is preventing this and I have to click allow every time, in some cases I can't access the sight due to this. I want to either turn OFF this annoyance permanently or to be able to "white list" certain sites to allow it

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???

This was never an issue but the last 3 months all emails from a particular sending keep getting sent to spam. I have added the sender to my contact list. I keep marking the emails as "not junk" while they're in the spam folder and they get moved into the "inbox" but the next one that comes in goes straight to spam. What else can I do to get them to stop going into spam? I would think that after 3 months the adaptive system would have learned to adapt.

Cannot access Yahoo mail for about two weeks now with T-bird. I am using the latest version with inbound.att.net and outbound.att.net with Oauth2 selected. I have an Oauth password from AT&T, when I try to use this I get a pop up that asks me for sign in credentials. When attempting sign in it says I need to enable cookies. (Firefox) I have given "cookie" permission to https://att.com, https://yahoo.com, https://login.yahoo.com. Can't get past this, any suggestions or additional permissions I might try?

Hello, Today I tried to copy my email password to log in with browser, but I got a confirmation box. What credentials should I put in the box? I tried to use my Windows account and then user/password from my email (I have a copy on paper, just in case), none of them worked. Is this a bug in new Thunderbird beta? I installed it on Friday, because Thunderbird 77.0b3 has integration with Exchange server Could you confirm what should I put as credentials? Regards, Mariusz

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

By default Thunderbird blocks 'remote content' in messages. For a long time I would choose options/"show remote content in this message". Then, for favorite sites and newsletters, I switched to allow remote content for the site. I am not sure I always made the correct choice. But, I can not find a way to see what content is being allowed.

The 'To protect your privacy...' banner and 'options' button no longer shows for permitted senders. I would like to see the choices again and perhaps pick a different one.

Is that possible? If not, can it be added to the message's 'more' selection?

Thank you.

The control page of my locally connected printer at 192.168.1.5 is being blocked as a "dangerous" site because it doesn't have a valid certificate as a web site. It's literally RIGHT NEXT TO MY COMPUTER! No path to the public internet is involved! How can I make this an exception (i.e. a "trusted site") to the certificate error blocking routine? I don't want to drop certificate checking for OUTSIDE web pages, just the one that controls my printer (the same IP address is accessible for printing and scanning, but not for editing my printer's options).

The frame for the printer's home page displays but with no data, and no data is displayed when anything is clicked. I've tried to add a screen shot but it doesn't upload.

I have been using MOZILLA / Netscape/ Firefox Since 1996/7. Periodically I have a problem . LIKE RIGHT NOW I have to use Chrome to contact you because your latest version is seriously corrupted and under attack from ; "attachappstreams.best You already know that because you've got a web page warning us of it. But you don't have a way to fix it. No matter how many times I delete it. Reboot my Windows 7 desktop. Or open and close the latest version of Firefox. That damn phony update keeps popping up with bells and blue screens and I can't use your browser until YOU GUYS figure out how you screwed up and gave them access. ADD ons and Ad blockers are equally dangerous and I limit them to only 2 for the past 5 years. Get a handle on the is , guys/gals . Or sadly, because I really don't like Chrome. But what choice do I have. FIX IT. IT Quickly. Or you're going to lose serious market share. Just like you did to Internet Explorer 20 years ago.
