A while ago my long-time hotmail account stopped working on two computer with windows 10 and one with windows 11. Last night, I looked up an article that said I have to use Oauth2 instead of normal pw. I made that change on the windows 11 machine and a popup occurred that wanted the number from the google authenticator on my phone. I gave it that and it checks mail now just fine.

This morning I went to one of the Windows 10 machines and did exactly the same. I tried some different server names online and tried some, but after a while I started getting a little window that asked my email address and pw. I put my hotmail address in and got this message:

Microsoft Accounts or personal email addresses don’t work here. Make sure you enter your work or school account (e.g. user@contoso.com). If you want to reset a Microsoft Account password, click here.

Now this is the very same hotmail email that worked on windows 11 with the same server settings last night. It still works.

Now, on the windows 10 machine with those same settings, I get the blank extra window. The extra window appears, does not populate, and disappeared.

It is: https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/oauth2/v2.0/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=9e5f94bc-e8a4-4e73-b8be-63364c29d753&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Flocalhost&scope=https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FIMAP.AccessAsUser.All+https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FPOP.AccessAsUser.All+https%3A%2F%2Foutlook.office365.com%2FSMTP.Send+offline_access&login_hint=redacted@hotmail.com

I had no opportunity to do what worked on the windows 11 machine just last night. I cannot check mail on hotmail on this windows 10 pc. I took all the updates available to Thunderbird and firefox. TB is 115.11.1

I'm stopped. Why would it work on one pc and not another? Oauth2 on the windows 11 asked for authenticator. On the windows 10 it never asks.

Hi! After a routine update today to Mozilla Firefox 127.0 for Linux Mint, Firefox is asking for my master password before letting me continue. Sync does not appear to be enabled.

I'd really rather it didn't do this, because my password manager is now always open and accessible. Previously, the master password request was only triggered when I came on a site that needed a password.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for any pointers!

All the gmail entries & passwords deleted, remaining email passwords replaced, as of this morning.

I replaced them, and then so did they. I just yesterday deleted my online life... I'm sure just a coincidence.

Here's half of one they used: M.C555_BAY.0.U.-Co2UA6qeq4JOFgsvOCkdA**pHYS5XqT3TfRXLZAdnUxGM361xXXF0iCTeAaY5pXNyRoEu7KvIh3*uCkYXNAKRvbL7UnBYVnODYaRQ8e5lPvftncJgK1yNc9TzeqTMW1BCwqdeBAjmbGg

Suggestions? (Other than accept the dark side & sell your soul)

This has been going on for a length of times, the Privacy app or window keeping changing when I used it. This morning, it started back when trying to close it to go to another website. Also, the middle part of the privacy screen keeping changing.

Firefox is not secure because there is something going on every day with the settings. They keep changing on me.

Today all of the sudden, one of my computers running Firefox won't connect to Youtube at all. It says security issue with HSTS. It also says there there is nothing I can do to resolve it. Surely that can't be true. Youtube runs on every other computer in the office just fine.

Here is a screen capture of the message:

I have a Lenovo Win 11 notebook that now requires me to sign in each time I open Outlook or YouTube when I use the Firefox Browser. Edge and Chrome do not require a sign each time I use Outlook and/or YouTube. A setting in Firefox certainly seems to be the cause. I reinstalled Firefox, still same broblem.

A week or two ago I had no issues with Outlook and YouTube. It happens now every time I Open Outlook and YouTube.

I now use EDGE and have stopped using Firefox which has been my preferred browser for years.

Best regards,

Hello,

I noticed something strange on my account under my password manager and want to make sure it is not a security issue.

Under my Password Manager, I noticed that a majority of my saved passwords (unless used recently) all have the last "used" date as April 5, 2024. These are on accounts that I do not access frequently and they all have the same "used" date.

Why would this be the case?

Thank you so much, Brianna

Data embedded in "object" tag is not loaded, depending on which Firefox profile I use. What setting controls this?

In Firefox 115.8.0esr on linux RHEL7, I am loading a local html page (using file:///...) that I created. Inside the html page, I have a tag "<object id="hiddenDataObj" data="abc.txt">" where abc.txt is a text file in the same directory as the html file. Using my default profile, the data is loaded and some downstream javascript runs as expected. When I use an alternate profile and try to load the exact same page, I get a javacscript error "Uncaught TypeError: hiddenDataObj.contentDocument is null." It is not null when I run my default profile.

I'm trying to figure out what setting in my profile is enabling/disabling the loading of the data so that I can change it. I've gone to about:preferences and scrolled through and it seems like all settings I see are the same between the two profiles.

Thanks for any help.

Almost daily on Firefox, I get pop-ups like the one shown in the attached image. I have, a few times, bought items on MrTortilla's website and that's fine. What I don't want it pop-ups from them daily when I'm not even on their site. Where do I go in Firefox to say, "I'm not open to pop-ups from this site"? Somehow it must be listed as okay. Please don't tell me to delete all cookies because I like the prefills from most of them. If there's a specific cookie I need to delete, please explain how to get to that. Hopefully, it's just a setting somewhere of sites that are allowed to send pop-ups and I can be guided there to remove mrtortilla.com from that list. Thanks!
