Hello I'm referencing the topic where TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support was removed but rolled back to accommodate some government agencies / sites and support for COVID-19 data

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290040#:~:text=Mozilla%20and%20other%20browser%20makers,and%20performance%20of%20Internet%20connections.

Quoted answer "Right, support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 has been removed few months ago, but we reverted the change for an undetermined amount of time to better enable access to critical government sites sharing COVID19 information."

Since it was referenced as "undermined amount of time", is there anything currently on your roadmap/release schedule in regards to removing support again? I have some cutover decisions I need to make and knowing if ESR for example will remove this support in 2 months may effect the direction of those. If you have anything to share, i'd really appreciate it.

Regards,

-Chad

I'm unable to add any of my Gmail accounts into Thunderbird.

When I add a Gmail account, it goes through the process of logging in via OAuth2 using the default configuration, and I get the pop-up. I enter my email address and password, and it brings me to the Google screen where I approve of giving access to Thunderbird (this screen: https://www.google.ca/search?q=google+account+permissions+screen+thudnerbird&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwjtpY2M7I_3AhXHg3IEHaaPCOkQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=google+account+permissions+screen+thudnerbird&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQA1CVA1jjDmDED2gAcAB4AYABgwGIAbcJkgEDNi42mAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWfAAQE&sclient=img&ei=jiFWYu2mCceHytMPpp-iyA4&bih=754&biw=1600#imgrc=ZNXSyYRJ67bY4M).

When I hit Allow, the pop-up closes, and then Thunderbird comes back with "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password."

I have no problem adding Gmail to other apps; it's only Thunderbird that is having this issue. I've already tried a fresh install on a fresh profile, but it continues to fail.

Someone got my email address and now I'm getting lots of junk mail but it is all addressed to addresses other than my email account. My email address is a certain string of letters @gmail.com, but the junk I'm getting is addressed to entirely different letters and nearly always @somekindofnonsense or any other string other than @gmail.com. How can I block these emails? Please be specific because I'm an old guy just struggling to keep up with technology. Can you tell me step-by-step how to block them? THANK YOU!

Firefox Prevents Local Machine File Access But Firefox Dev Ed Allows It . . .

Local Machine: Dell Inspiron i5-7200 / 16 GB RAM / Local Op Sys: Ubuntu 20.04LTS

Firefox version: 99.0 FFDE version: 100.0b5

Node.js version 14.18.1 npm version 6.14.15


I had a Node.js web app running on my local machine all usual browsers like Firefox, Firefox Dev Ed (FFDE), Chromium, Edge, Opera, etc till recently.

Recently it shows an error when run on Firefox (also on Chromium, Opera and Edge) although continuing to run okay on FFDE.

Firefox Error: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at file:///home/sandbar/Desktop/nodeapp-local/undefined. (Reason: CORS request not http).

Edge Error: Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'file:///home/sandbar/Desktop/nodeapp-local/undefined' from origin 'null' has been blocked by CORS policy: Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome-extension, edge, https, chrome-untrusted.


Naturally, I need to test the web app on my local machine using several browsers before I should upload it to a server and trial it there.

So how do I configure the browser and/or app to allow access to local machine files ?

Whenever I click on a web search link that goes to Facebook, my Firefox browser back button is cleared. This makes it impossible to go back to my original search easily.

When I remember and notice, I open link in new tab to retain my history.
This started happening several months ago and can be frustrating when doing deep searches.
 I hope there is a security setting I am missing that is allowing Facebook access to my browsing history!
Thanks for your help!

I want to be able to close Firefox and have all cookies and site data removed - but I want to keep my history.

Checking the box to do just this in 'Privacy & Security' will delete cookies when I close Firefox - but all the site data remains. Under 'History' I have 'use custom settings' enabled, as well as 'remember browsing and download history'. I've tried various permutations of this, but can't get it to do what Firefox says it will.

Being able to do this is one of the main reason I want to use Firefox, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to manually delete both cookies and site data.

Any suggestions to try to delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes, but remember history?

Hello, if I'm running 101.0a1 (2022-04-15) (64-bit) nightly, does that mean this version will be in the 101 release (5/31/2022) or the 102 release (6/28/2022)

The reason I'm asking is that the minimum TLS 1.2 restriction (no override in the error page) was previously stated as being part of the 102 release. Here is my original question

Release Schedule: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar

Just would like to know for sure, if possible, thanks!

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Hi.

I need to print out my saved passwords. I have no cellphone to access, just my laptop and printer. I only use Firefox and no other browser. If my laptop gets hacked or breaks down, then I need to use someone else's computer to access my passwords in an emergency, and can't access my passwords to do so...so printing them out periodically is the smartest thing I can think of.

Help, anyone? This is pretty important to me. Thank you!

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!

Hello,

The pop-up blocker exceptions are not working for some sites which I, of course, use a lot. The sites are listed in the exceptions, but Firefox stubbornly continues to block them. I sincerly consider walking away from Firefox (notwithstanding I love it and being a long term user), because it happens with sites I frequently use on a daily base.

I've looked around but none of the solutions work for me as those articles are rather old.

My version of Firefox: 99.0.1 (64bit) running under Windows 10 Pro

Hoping to find a solution here.

Hi,

I have my Thunderbird 91.8.0 (64-bit) (Fedora 35) setup to use PGP aliases- This worked well quite some weeks. Since a short time (like one week or so) I do encounter a problem:

First when trying to use an alias, thunderbird told me there was no key for encrytion found. So I checked my settings and the profile directory for the .json file containing the alias rules. It was there as expected. Trying to fix the problem I did copy the file, rename it an change the mail.openpgp.alias_rules_file value to the new name. Now it would find the file again but tell me the corresponding public PGP key is missing.

I checked using the Thunderbird integrated OpenPGP Key Manager and indeed the public key for the alias was missing. So I did try to import this key again after downloading and saving it (from https://keys.openpgp.org/) but this always throws an error which doesn't tell a reason (see picture).

Btw: I also checked the pubring.gpg file with grep and it seems like the desired key is in there (I'm not very experienced in using grep but the output was somethig like "found occurence in binary file" for: grep XXXX (name of the owner of the key) ~/.thunderbird/NNNNxrez.default-release/pubring.gpg)

Does anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it? Maybe there is just a format problem when trying to import from https://keys.openpgp.org/ https://keys.openpgp.org/] ? Cause I did test it with another key from there with the same result...

Would appreciate any help or tip what to try!

Cheers!
