I am using Thunderbird 115.10.1. I want to send an encrypted email with attachments of different types (pdf, docs, images, zips,...)

I have set up PGP following this guidance: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/openpgp-thunderbird-howto-and-faq#thunderbird:linux:tb115


And I have confirmed it is working with Edward following this guidance: https://emailselfdefense.fsf.org/en/

But I have tried looking online to check, are the attachments to the email also encrypted?

I keep getting these notifications, and because they relate to Bitwarden" I'm very reluctant to just click on the "accept" button in the message because of the possibility of a scam and the exposure it may create.

Is the notification genuine? How do I know? How can I update Firefox settings to achieve the same result without responding to the notification?

Bit paranoid I accept, but better careful than having regrets! Thks

I am running Firefox 126.0-1 on an Arch Linux system. Most websites are failing to connect for security reasons.

Some sites, including google.com and nytimes.com, fail with an "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" error, and their certificates confirm that they are respectively issued by Google Trust Services LLC and DigiCert Inc.

The website archlinux.org errors with "MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_MITM_DETECTED", stating that "Software is Preventing Firefox From Safely Connecting to This Site", citing in particular ISRG Root X1 as the problem. The certificate confirms that it is issued by Let's Encrypt.

The website duckduckgo.com simply errors with "SEC_ERROR_PATH_LEN_CONSTRAINT_INVALID" and states "Secure Connection Failed"

I have confirmed in preferences that my proxy settings are set to "No proxy" and the problem persists across troubleshooting mode and making a new profile. I have also tried removing the cert9.db file in a given profile folder.

I am trying to configure Firefox on macOS to not prompt the user to make it the default browser.

I am using the following script to create the profile and set the user preferences after installing Firefox by copying `Firefox.app` from the downloaded DMG: ```

  1. !/bin/sh

open -a Firefox.app --args -CreateProfile default sleep 1

write_userpref() { USER=$(whoami) PROFILE=$(ls -1 "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/" | grep -E "\.default$") cat << EOF > "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/${PROFILE}/user.js" // mandatory comment? user_pref("app.update.auto", false); user_pref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("breakpad.reportURL", ""); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites", false); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.discovery.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.defaultbrowser.notificationbar", false); user_pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false); user_pref("browser.shell.didSkipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun", false); user_pref("browser.shell.skipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun", true); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.enabled", false); user_pref("experiments.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.pocket.enabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false); user_pref("update_notifications.enabled", false); EOF }

write_userpref

open -a Firefox.app --args -new-tab -P default "about:blank" sleep 3 osascript -e 'quit app "Firefox"' sleep 2

open -a Firefox.app --args -P default about:blank ```

Here's the behaviour I'm seeing:

  1. Firefox starts to an `about:blank` tab, however there is a second "Firefox Privacy Notice" tab
  2. AppleScript quits Firefox
  3. Firefox starts to an `about:blank` tab, however it is now prompting me to make it the default browser

I do not want Firefox to prompt the user to become the default browser.

My ideal scenario is that Firefox starts without the "Firefox Privacy Notice" tab and without prompting me to make it the default browser. From the observed behaviour, this doesn't seem possible.

Can anyone tell me how I can accomplish this without user interaction or MDM?

Is there a way to turn off tracking URL fragment insertion from the release notes page when clicking "What's New" in the Firefox update modal?

When I click "What's New" in this modal (see Screenshot 1), it loads the release notes page for my current version (although it really should load the release notes page for the version it wants me to upgrade to, but that's another issue altogether), and inserts a bunch of tracking URI fragments onto the URL (see Screenshot 2).

Is there a way (in Settings, about:config, Windows Registry, etc.) to disable that fragment insertion?

I am having issues with Thunderbird not retaining my email server and passwords. Each time I want to send an email, it prompts me for the password and then tells me that the email address and server don't match. I have tried numerous times to correct this, but it doesn't hold the information. It also switches the server info between accounts. I have 3 different email account and sometimes only one works correctly

The email acount I was using to sign-in to Firefox has been breached annd the onlyway I can recover it involves sending drivers license photo and current photo ofmy delf -- ehich would not prove snything. If somebody hsd my enough info they could fake that easy enough. Although they have takenaway allour privacy I refuse to send them that info.

If I had simply said I need helpchanging my password they never would have known. I was honest about the reason I needed a new password. Ended in my contacting Paypal and telling them to not acceot any more charges as I had the Premium email.

So noe I need a new sign-in here and Firefox becuase if I am asked code to be retrieved from that provider I won't be able to get it.

If someone can help me please send notice to : [email address]

Thanks in advance Paul

Hello,

I am trying to force two or three websites to detect my timezone as UTC, even though my local system time is not UTC. I figured out how to do this with ALL sites by setting privacy.fingerprintingProtection to "true" and entering "+JSDateTimeUTC" in privacy.fingerprintingProtection.overrides in about:config.

Now according to docs, privacy.fingerprintingProtection.granularOverrides "can be used to add or remove features on a domain granular level if privacy.fingerprintingProtection is enabled," but I can't figure out how to get it working.

Any input is appreciated.

The story is when I accidentally clicked on a sick video, YouTube start to recommend me similar sick videos.

So my question is how does YouTube get my identity?

I'm not logged in. my profile is actually a snapshot, so when I restart Firefox, it go back to the snapshot. I even restarted my ISP router to get a new IP address. This did not work.

Only when I create a new profile with "firefox -P" does YouTube start to see me as a new person.

So how does YouTube identify my Firefox profile? I don't think it's in the https request headers. Weird.

Our website The Last Price is based in Qatar that have different category products like iPhone Mobile Phones, Tablets & Earbuds, Home Appliances, Accessories (Mobile Covers & Cases, Keyboards & Controllers, etc.) and many other eCommerce products.

As I mention above that we have different ecommerce products which we only want to sell in Qatar but we are getting some other countries traffic like USA, Pakistan, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, so how we can block these countries or anything in Google Search Console which help to keep the website with country specific?

Is there any specific Mozilla Firefox extension that you recommend or any HTML code help to block other country traffic?

Hi I have been using firefox on linux for a while without updating it. We are artsellers and I used to be able to log in and out of an artplatform without any problems. It's now been a few weeks since logging out is not possible any more on this platform which means that I am constantly logged in which I really do not want. The menu does not work anymore on this side whereas it works with other browers. I already contacted the platform. They cannot do anything about it themselves and asked me to contact your team. Please help. Thank you Best regards from Germany C. Marsac
