I need to be able to temporarily disable my ad blocker: I keep getting popups saying that an ad blocker has prevented me from accessing a certain site, or that it's interfering with a site's fraud protection settings. I'm running Windows 10 and Windows Security, and also MalwareBytes...but neither of them appear to contain an ad blocker. Is it Firefox?

hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Hi.

My internet banking site seems to not work with Firefox for Android.

It works fine with:

  • Firefox (Desktop)
  • Chrome (Android)

The page is:

https://login.anz.com/internetbanking

Just wondering where should I report this.

Firefox is not one of the bank's officially supported browsers , but given it works fine on Firefox Desktop, is it a problem with Firefox for Android?

Hi,

I switched from Windows Live Mail to Thunderbird 91 recently (clean install, Windows 10 Pro). My workplace uses Gsuite, I set up IMAP (port 993) in Thunderbird and I'm getting and sending emails just fine. Me and my colleagues use S/MIME certificates by Actalis.

The thing is, I can decrypt most of my colleague emails but there are a couple of people where Thunderbird crossed out the S/MIME icon and says "There are unknown problems with this encrypted message." In Windows Live Mail I can see it's encrypted and I can read it just fine. It's just Thunderbird that's being funny.

After switching from Windows Live Mail, I haven't done anything with the certificates. I'm not sure why it can decrypt some people but it can't decrypt others. Their certificates are all valid and they appear in the certificate manager in Thunderbird.

I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it, so any help would be appreciated!

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

For quite some time now, some messages that were previously set as Not Junk, are still going into Junk folder. Interestingly, these messages are only from a handful of known valid sources. Further, all these valid messages are setup in the Message Filters, all with the "Get New Mail" option set for "Filter before Junk Classification".

When in the Junk folder, these emails are marked as "Not Junk", which transfers then into the Inbox. Clicking the Inbox automatically sends them to the appropriate sub-folder. It's as though something is forcing these messages into Junk BEFORE Thunderbird even classifies them, bypassing it's internal filtering system. What's frustrating, is that there are no means to see what keywords or phrases are being flagged as Junk, or why those particular emails seem to get into the Junk Folder in the first place.

I should note that while I'm with Spectrum, the email account that's giving me this grief is on my legacy Comcast email account. Could this be where Comcast's servers are flagging these as junk BEFORE they reach Thunderbird, and TB simply routes them to Junk, bypassing any additional checks?

Thanks, Bill

Upgraded from a very old Eudora environment in 2 steps to TB 91.1. Windows 10. All works fine, but the passwordmanager will not save my email-password during normal operation, though the 'save pw' checkbox is there. It's a clean installation, no add-ons. If I start TB in safe (troubleshoot-) mode, all works fine. I don't seem to be able to find out the reason of this change in behaviour, would be happy with any suggestions.

Hi!

I want to dump/debug http traffic with mitm proxy: https://github.com/ganskef/LittleProxy-mitm . This proxy generates it's own root certificate which i manually imported to Firefox from about:preferences#privacy > View Certificates > Authorities > Import. I verified that cert shows up after importing it. But I get errors despite of that:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

Is there a way to bypass it?
