I had one profile on Firefox and it got deleted yesterday. It had so much data and private keys. I don't even see that profile in profile folder path. I made a new profile today and there were many tabs opened on that profile. When i search for a webpage already opened on that deleted profile it gives me a reference to it as attached is there any way i can regain access to the same? PFA picture. The encircled shows that this tab is on sdraj (my old profile) followed by desktop name.

Hello!

I've set up an AdGuard Home server in my network. It provides the DNS-over-HTTPS service, I added it to my Firefox Network Settings configuration as https://adguard.example.com/dns-query and my machine has adguard.example.com in its /etc/hosts file.

The upstream AdGuard DNS server is my home router, which has several static DNS entries added for hosts in my network, e.g. foo.example.com pointing to 10.0.0.100.

During regular use, the domains resolve properly - when I navigate to http://foo.example.com everything works OK.

However when my machine is connected to VPN, the browser is unable to connect to http://foo.example.com, but it is still able to reach: http://10.0.0.100, regular internet as well as https://adguard.exaple.com (which is obtained from /etc/hosts).

This is on MacOS, using openconnect as a VPN client (and of course, the VPN connection changes the host DNS servers, this is what I'm trying to circumvent with Firefox' DoH feature).

I noticed one thing: with VPN, the use-application-dns.net resolves to something, without VPN it does not. I found this article, which mentions: "When any of these checks indicates a potential issue, Firefox will disable DoH for the remainder of the network session, unless the user has enabled the “DoH always” preference as mentioned above."

I have DoH explicitly enabled, the network.trr.mode is set to 2 (tried 3 as well, did not help). There's no such option as "DoH always" in the settings!

Hello dear team,

apparently TB 78.14 had two parallel processes in installation before 92.1.0 ?

In version 78.14 - I had dark mode and then apparently there was graphics error (due to NVIDIA ?) - this way then a light grey TB was running in background while TB 78.14 with dark mode running in foreground.

Now with 92.1.0 this has gone away - but each time I open and close TB then this message appears in terminal (of Solus 4.3).

I have installed 92.1.0 after I deleted the folder "thunderbird" - but have taken over the settings in folder "./.." :

' ' ' egg@home ~/Downloads/thunderbird $ ./thunderbird

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

egg@home ~/Downloads/thunderbird $

' ' '

There is still a second parent process seeking connection or what does this mean ?! Or is this harmless ?

Please put back that option thanks

I can't sign an e-mail with an S/MIME certificate

I have an S/MIME certificate installed within a USB token. My Mozilla Firefox (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:93.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/93.0 … (read more)

I have an S/MIME certificate installed within a USB token. My Mozilla Firefox (User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:93.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/93.0 - OS: Windows_NT 10.0 19042) can see my certificate via OS Client Cert Module (path: C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILL~1\osclientcerts.dll). Strangely, Tunderbird did not have such "device" loaded, so I managed to load it via Options->Privacy & Security->Security Devices->Load and typing "OS Client Cert Module" and "C:\PROGRA~1\MOZILL~2\osclientcerts.dll" into "Module name" and "Module filename" fields, respectively. Now I can see my S/MIME certificate and choose it as the certificate for signing and encrypting my e-mails within the account with the e-mail address equal to the one trusted by the certificate.

Now come the problems. When I write an e-mail and try to send it digitally signed, I get the following message box:

--- Send Message Error Sending of the message failed. You specified that this message should be digitally signed, but the application either failed to find the signing certificate specified in your Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings, or the certificate has expired. ---

Well, the certificate has not expired. It is present whithin "Your Certificates" tab of "Certificate Manager" dialog; the entire authority chain is present within "Authorities" tab of the same dialog. I can't figure out what is missing. Other applications (e.g. LibreOffice, PDF-XChange Editor) find the same certificate without complaint and, when required, prompt a dialog asking for the PIN of the token. TB does ask for nothing. Perhaps it doesn't know that a password is required.

Below I give some details of mt TB version.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Rosivaldo.

With this latest Firefox update I cannot find where/how to add certificate exemptions. In addition, every time I clear browsing history any certificate exemptions I have are also cleared.

1. What is the new method for adding certificate exemptions? 2. Is there a way to keep certificate exemptions when clearing browsing history?

Thanks!

OpenPGP: Automatic encryption if key is available

Hello,

I'm missing the feature of automatic encryption of the mail, if I have a key of the receipent in my openpgp-keyring. This was an essential feature of enigmail months ago. As OpenPGP got implemented in Thunderbird (thanks for that!) this feature was "kicked out". Is there any explanation for this? Will this feature be implemented in the near feature?

As an administrator in a company it's a huge pain in the ass to get all the employees to use mail encryption since they have only two options:

  • Option 1: Encrypt every mail ==> this results in more dialog pop-ups complaining of missing keys (since not everyone uses PGP). Results in no one using this option, because this is annoying for them, but in option 2
  • Option 2: Encrypt manualy by user interaction ==> results in you have to think about mail encryption otherwise the mail is send unencrypted, which happens in most of the cases.

Because of the missing automatic encryption and signing option, this leads into a security hole for many other users.

Thank you for your attention!

Hello.

Current Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection-Standard Without the Free Adblock installed.

Goal: Minimize tracking and pop-up ads from appearing during my browser session:

Please answer each question separately:

Q1. Is the Standard option sufficient or should it be set to strict?

Answer:

Q2a. Does the Standard option OR the Strict option provide the features of an ad-block or does the free Adblock needs to be installed as well in order to receive full protection?

b. When I was about to install the Free Adblock, a warning came up asking me if it was the best adblocker and confirming that the extension would have permission to access my data from all websites, extend developer tools to access my data in open tabs, display notifications to me, access my browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation/

Do I really want to install Adblock knowing all of the above details?

I need to download a certificate from a device in my networt called secunet Konnektor

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor

on the manual it's written how to do it.

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor#c1607

I suggest to find a manual somewhere in the first link or in google:

chapter 7.4.3

go to chrome (same with edge)

click on the lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

somehow click on the button where you can open a small windows called "certificate".

The "General" tab shows informations about the certificate.

Click on the tab "Details" and click on "Copy file".

The certificate-assitent opens and after clicking on next, you choose DER-coded-binary X.509 (.CER)

Save the file somewhere where you can find it.

I can't do this on firefox

On firefox I can find a lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

when i click on it and then on something else, i can then click on more informations.

a windows opens called "page informations"

under "security" i click on "view certificates" and a new tabs opens called "certificate for konnektor".

but there is no possibilty to download a cer-file. only a pem file and it doesn't really help me.

Other threads suggest this could be my server. If so, how does that explain that my phone emal client is not moving thenm to junk? I don't know how to paste a screen shot into here. thanks, Sera
