I don't mind having a chat feature in Thunderbird, but due to my deeply ingrained hatred towards Google, I want Gtalk completely gone from my Linux PC. It's obsolete anyway. How do I remove it from Chat on Thunderbird? Is it integrated into the Thunderbird deb package, or some sort of plugin or separate package? I don't mind losing the entire chat feature, since I don't use it anyway.

Hello, sorry for my English. I would like sometimes to launch Firefox behind VPN. I can indeed do it by using options manually, it works perfectly. All along my search, I have found that a private mode launcher can be made ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window). Is there any similar instruction, but for a Firefox manual VPN option activate ? Thank you for your attention.

Hello, I want to use S/MIME in Thunerbird 78.10.1 (64-bit). In my account settings i've import a .pfx-file. I created this certificate with openssl. I choose this personal certificate for digital signature and encryption (i want to use end-to-end encryption).

If I try to send a signed mail I got an error message: "Application could not find the signing certificate which I choose in my account settings [...]" --> imprecise wording, I am using Thunderbird in German

But I only got this error message, if I choose as encryption technology S/MIME. When I choose OpenPGP as encryption technology I got no error message and the e-mail is sent digital signed.

Where is the problem?

Thanks for help.

Greetings

When trying to paste text in a message window this message pops up:

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

I have no idea why and have looked all over the FF settings for something to change, but no luck.

I'm also suddenly having problems with TamperMonkey not running scripts even though it shows they are enabled.

I was able to past directly into the "Plugins" window below.

Win7 Pro, I'm the only user on PC.

Thanks.

I am occasionally using an e-mail server with out of date TLS settings. Unfortunately, there is no work around for one particular job that I have to do.

When I first was updated to version 78, I got the error described in the string, "can not send mail after update ver78...." I updated my TLS settings as follows: security.tls.version.min = 1 security.tls.version.enable-deprecated = true

And everything seemed to work. However, today, I can no longer send e-mails with that server. It appears that another update broke things again.

I am currently running 78.10.1 on Windows 10. I can receive e-mail, no problem. With the bad server, a test message appears to be sent and gets put in the sent messages folder but doesn't show up in my inbox on another account. I'm not sure of the date but it appears that a message I sent on April 28 worked.

We proceeded exactly according to the description for installing the option to save user names and passwords for further use. But it doesn't work. There comes the question if user name and password should be stored and despite you get "yes" they are not stored. Everything funcions well on our other computers but it doesn't work on our additional computer we are just installing. What could be the problem?

When I go to maps.google.com the screen pauses and does not go to the site until I refresh or reselect the bookmark. The about:networking shows maps.google.com as port 80. The site is https and I am using D.O.H. so I would not expect to see any port 80 value for maps.google.com.

Is this a known bug?

I've used Firefox for many years, and NEVER has the "block audio and video" setting ever worked. It is really annoying to be trying to read an article and have a video playing - distracting me - while I'm trying to read. When I try to ignore it and scroll past, it pops out and starts playing in the lower right hand corner in the way of whatever I'm trying to read, so I have to close the video down. I'm not a programmer, I'm a simple user. Why is Mozilla even pretending to block videos when they don't?

Because a financial organisation required separate emails for different accounts I added two accounts to my PC. Over the past weekend I have had problems with spoofing on my main account (incoming mail diverted) but appear to have corrected that. Now I am being requested a password simply for one of the new accounts, (it accepted an incoming mail earlier today). Looking at the stored passwords provides me with a password, updated today, which does not work, nor will my main BT account password (revised after the spoofing). I saw a reference in another reply to "password recovery", how do I access that?

Hi. I received a legitimate email, Firefox Monitor <breach-alerts@mozilla.com> notifying me that my email had been breached. I changed my password and received notification that the new pw was accepted. When I tried to login on my laptop and entered my email, I was not allowed to Continue to the next page to enter the new password. Surprisingly, to me, the Community Forum page DID accept my new login information. It appears I can still use Firefox browser on my android phone (Galaxy s10) but previous websites that were open were gone, which didn't surprise me. However, on my Galaxy s4 tablet, all the previously opened pages are still there. At this point, my main issue is how can I sign into Firefox Monitor on my laptop? Thanks for your help.
