So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hi; hope all is well in your world!

I have a ProtonMail account. (It works fine, I recommend it!) Had it for years, but have not used it much. Looking into VPN and proton offers one, so trying to find out more, and so am now exploring the proton site quite a bit.

I can log into ProtonMail itself very easily; I get directed to my ProtonMail inbox. Cool so far. But clicking on 'help' takes me to ProtonMail Support, in a new tab. Not so cool, because I'm now not logged in. If I hit the 'LOG IN' button at the top of that page, I can log in (again) very easily. But it takes me back to my ProtonMail inbox! Same problem if I try to log in to the Protonmail Blog.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've checked through all the ProtonMail support articles (that claim they are 'step by step guide to find easily your answer'); I've investigated 'Common Login Problems', and none of the offered solutions apply (I'm not having a problem logging in; I'm having a problem logging in to something other than the inbox.) I've tried disabling browser extensions; checked the settings of Javascript, Session Storage, and Cookies; even tried using a different browser.

I think the answer to this conundrum is to configure Firefox -- just for proton -- so that instead of opening a new tab it opens the content in the same tab. But I've searched Firefox help, and have not been able to discover how to do that.

I fear I am slowly but surely going insane.

Please help!

Hi, I received an email this morning supposedly from mozilla support which stated there was a reply to a question I posted here about 5 years ago. Not the kind of person to click links in emails I signed in directly to my Firefox account and searched for replies to my original question and did not see a reply from the poster who was mentioned the email. How can I determine if this email is actually from mozilla and if it is not what should I do with it? I did check my email using the Firefox Monitor and nothing showed up. Thank you.

I have an ssh tunnel that I am using to access an AWS ElasticSearch instance running in AWS, so that I can see Kibana in my browser. The tunnel is necessary because access is only allowed through a specific jump/gateway host that we have setup (this is very standard).

I used to be able to access this just fine with http://localhost:9200/_plugin/kibana But then ElasticSearch updated something to require that the 'HOST' header contain the original host, ie: search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Ok, no matter, I'll just add an entry to my hosts file: 127.0.0.1 search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com

Now, I can curl just fine, and using Chrome works just fine too: http://search-blahblahblahblah.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com:9200/_plugin/kibana

But every time I try to use Firefox, it replaces the http with https, which obviously doesn't work because the tunnel is to port 80.


Yes, I realize that *.amazonaws.com is owned by Amazon and they have an SSL cert.

I have read a similar ticket, here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1209387 The acceptable answer in that ticket seemed to be to use a different domain for local development, which shouldn't be too hard to do, but in my case this is not a usable answer.

I should be able to override Firefox and tell it not to change a URL that I have put into it, at least for specific sites.

On my Android phone I cannot type in a URL and have Firefox take me there directly. Google (or some other search engine) sees and processes everything I type. On my desktop Firefox I can type a URL into the address bar without Google seeing it. (AFAIK.)

I don't want any search engine knowing a URL I type in. I want Firefox to drop it on the Internet to be resolved by the DNS.

Hi, I've been looking for the way to sign digitally my emails using my personal certificate (given to me by the government), but unfortunately I didn't found it. Several tutorials indicate that the way to do this is configuring the certificate in Account settings -> Security, but for me there is no such option. The last group of settings for each account I have in my Thunderbird is "Return Receipts". Maybe I'm missing something?

Thank you for your help and time :)

My institution will require Duo 2-step authentication to access to its O365 Exchange email system. They want to force everyone to use desktop client Outlook, but I have used Thunderbird (with Exquilla add-on) flawlessly for years. My institution does not allow use of App Passwords. I have seen conflicting entries about how to enable TB to work well with an O365 system using Duo 2FA. I don't even know if there is a problem with TB accessing the exchange email site outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx if I have an active 2-step authenticated session open in a browser. I have seen conflicting statements about TB 68 vs TB 78 regarding 2FA, and the use of OAuth2 authentication, which is an option even on TB 60. Obviously I can try out various things, but the risk is losing all email access in the process without being able to easily recover (once 2FA is activated, I cannot turn it off).

In view of how many places now require 2FA and how many people use TB, I would like some clarity on how to make them work together. I hope that someone with actual knowledge/experience with this can help (I cannot imagine I am the first to want to make this work). If this belongs in a different board, let me know. Thanks.

Hi all, I wanted to protect my Thunderbird software with a password so I did the routine of setting it up.

One day I went to enter T-Bird and then decided not to so I hit "escape" to abandon the password entry, figuring the program would just shut down. It didn't shut down. It opened.

It seems that if you hit the "x" or "escape", the program bypasses the password and opens without entering a password.

What have I done wrong ??

cheers, thank you :) john@oldradio.ca

We need a fix to turn off forever the splash notification after taken a screenshot. I have been using the temporary solution of turning on "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" but we need a definite solution on how to turn that notification off forever.

Hello,

This problem just started with the last update or two from firefox, and the other browsers CHROME or EDGE loads the site just fine. To view how the twitter feed should look, just load in those browsers and you will see it styled.

MY SITE https://www61.myfantasyleague.com/2020/home/15387#0

You notice the lower left twitter feed, it is not being styled by css through js. I get a console error that reads. DOMException: Permission denied to access property "frameElement" on cross-origin object

I am not sure how to fix this with a setting turned off or on maybe, or if firefox can fix in the browser, as i really dont want to use Chrome.

Thank you Dean
