Hi,

My old Gmail account works in Thunderbird 68.12.1 (32-bit) with no problems, that is, it sends and receives mail. Now I decided to add another Gmail account to Thunderbird. It receives mail without problems, but it can't send mail. If that matters, I have total 4 accounts in Thunderbird (the other 2 aren't Gmail accounts and they're working).

Both accounts have identical settings:

1) both are Gmail mails, that is, mail address is like name1.name2@gmail.com and those mails aren't new (I've had them for several years, but in Thunderderbird was using just one of them).

2) the option for "Less secure app access allowed" is turned ON in Gmail account security

3) POP mail server settings: Server Name: pop.gmail.com Port: 995 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: Normal password

4) SMTP server settings in Thunderbird: Server Name: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Connection security: SSL/TLS Authentication method: OAuth2

So why my new account can't send mails with Authentication method: OAuth2 (it can only send mails using Authentication method: Normal password).

Isn't that the opposite of what should be happening? I thought that Gmail was supposed require OAuth2 method. Anyway, what I'm missing to make those accounts identical for Gmail?

Background -- I have a Synology Disk Station. When setting it up, in order to make a secure connection I registered the Domain I planned to use with Synology and received a registered Domain Name. I then applied for and received a certificate from “Lets Encrypt. It worked fine for a few years. I was able to login to the Disk Station Locally using the Local Network IP I had assigned to it, and also able log in via the registered Domain through Synology with a Secure Connection using either method when logging in. Everything worked perfectly. Over a year ago I had some issues with my network (it has been too long ago for me to remember what it was). I could not resolve it, so when I called Netgear Tech Support they had me reset my router to factory settings. This did fix the issue I was having, but I later noticed resetting had changed my IP address. I thought this was not a problem at the time. It was then I also noticed I was no longer getting a Secure Connection on through my Disk Station. Have been trying to resolve this on my own, but I am not having any luck. But I am learning as I go. Present Day – I am still having issues logging in. The message I get when I log into the Synology registered Domain with Firefox is "Unable to Connect". I tried Chrome and get a similar message. When I log in locally using the assigned IP address I get "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

I click on the "Advanced" button where Firefox displays the Error Message:  SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.  I continue with the exception and able to log into the Disk Station. 

My Goal is to get it working with a secure connection as it did before the Router Reset. -- I have checked all the appropriate ports are open. 5000 and 5001. -- Have checked for any firewall restrictions. -- I have tried replacing the previous certificate with a new one. -- Synology Tech Support does not seem to know, so I figure the problem lies within Windows 10 or Firefox. -- The Certificate in my Windows mmc Console says the Certificate is OK. Weather that is the one that is used for this connection I am speaking of, I do not know. -- The Certificate is current and has not expired. My apologies for this description being lengthy, I just want to make sure I state everything I can think of in order to get this fixed. I do not know a lot about this topic, but am learning as I go. Any help is very much appreciated.

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?

I have added custom certificate authority to the Android system certificates store. But it seems that Firefox doesn't use native store unlike other browsers do. I have to click to advance and allow every time I visit our "unsafe" university web.

Why there is no option to use native Android certificates store or to install CA into browser? That's quite security issue.

I have just received this message from Google / Gmail:

"Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0"

I currently use an older version of MS Outlook that apparently won't work after these changes are introduced.

My question is - will Thunderbird work with Gmail after the 30th May deadline? Is it compatible with 'Sign in with Google'?

Thank you for your help.

Hello, I have been using Firefox for so long, and it's one of my favorite web browser on Windows as well as on Android. Firefox update for Android has become frustrating for many people including me, as most of the features aren't available in this new FF. One of them is about:config system settings, where i use to change some usefull features by going through that option. Sadly, this isn't available in the new update as of now. So, I would like to request you that please add this option as soon as possible in the coming updates. Another request would be, to be able to change the dns within the browser for using secure dns like DoH. As this option is available in desktop browser, i will be happy to get this option even on Android as well. Thank you.....

Hello, I have 3 websites:

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

Before dinner Wed nite (EST), I could check my GMAIL emails (imap.gmail.com) just fine. After dinner (must've been something I ate?), TBird now keeps asking me for my password when I try to 'Get Messages' or 'Send Messages'. When I put in the correct password, it doesn't accept it. I have checked the CAPS lock key, too. I even tried an old password.

The 'good' password works to get me into Gmail online, so I can view all of my Gmail Emails, but TBird is so much better or course. I can use the GMAIL app for my IPad and everything is fine, so at least I can see my messages.

I CHANGED NOTHING!!! The Passwords show in my password manager.

As an aside: Before all of this happened, I had been noticing that, since updating to the newest TBird, everything is super super slow. When I would type something it'd take 3-5 seconds to show. Plus, it now takes 'forever' to load up.

Just discovered that my Address Book has been wiped out! Is this some type of virus?

BIG THANKS TO THE PERSON WHO HELPS.
