Hello Mozilla Support, Google sign-in pop-up persists after disabling it. I have searched the web for this solution, enacted them, but the problem persists even after I have turned off the feature in my Google account. (See my attached images.) Some posts have commented that the problem persists in the Firefox browser, but not in other browsers. Thank you for support.

Thunderbird REPEATEDLY Keeps Marking Non Junk As Junk giving me a daily headache in manually marking them as NON junk. I very rarely receive junk email, and those I do receive stick out like a sore thumb. I'm capable of deciding myself what is and is not junk. How to TOTALLY disable junk filtering? I mean TOTALLY, not the "usual" fixes given which don't work. There must be something in the config editor I can adjust, surely. Thank You Regards George

I'm trying to sign into/sync Firefox on a new phone. It keeps saying I need to get code from authenticator app. I don't have one! I try to scan IR code from computer, but it still requires a code. Sometimes it says it is sending a code to my email address. It does not. I ask it to resend code but it never does. I am logged into Firefox on my computer, is there a way to turn off the authenticator or otherwise solve this problem?

Hello,

as Microsoft 365 will soon disable basic auth, we have switched to OAuth2 but unfortunately, Thunderbird randomly displays an Authentication error and at this point we won't receive any new messages.

Every time I start Thunderbird, emails are fetched correctly, but then after some time the error appears and at this point, Thunderbird doesn't even try it again. I can't even find an option to try again and have to restart Thunderbird at which point everything works again.

This is really problematic for us as it can take a while until we notice the issue and until then we may miss an important email.

We are using shared inboxes which means that we are accessing a mailbox like sharedinbox@business.de using tenant@business.de and the tenants MFA.

Why does OAuth2 work this unreliable?

How can we get Thunderbird to just try again automatically?

Thunderbird 102.1.2 (64 bit)

Best Regards

Firefox restore sessions even after disabling the option from about:config

I've tried the solution from this closed thread and it doesn't help. I'm on Debian based Linux using Firefox version 103.0

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349553

from about:config, every sessionstore has been disabled and sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes set to 0

If I close my firefox using 'x' or shut down computer before closing firefox directl, firefox restores the previous session. From a thread on support site that I can't find anymore, I read that the fault was that, firefox was reverting to default settings before closing when using 'x' instead of File -> Exit.

I can't believe such a massive hole still isn't fixed. For me, the worst that can happen is someone will see a site that I find embarrassing on restarting. As stated in the other thread, if you're a journalist or someone else, in certain countries, this can become a life of death situation. Along with other shenanigans Firefox has been pulling, this kind of drives home the point that Firefox isn't the browser anymore if privacy and security is your main concern.

Firefox is not saving my settings when I close it. This can happen for various settings, e. g. if I allow a pop-up exception, or a cookie override exception, for a specific site, and save the setting, it will be gone whenever I close and restart Firefox.

Also, bookmarks are not saved - apparently somewhat randomly.

I currently have Firefox 160.0.6 64 bit. However, this has been going on with the last several versions of Firefox.

I have uninstalled Firefox, discarded the folder containing my profile, then reinstalled Firefox. But the problem still exists.

Hello,

I cannot save my credit card number in Firefox, in Settings I don't even have the option to save them and the directions in the Firefox help don't work. #2 below there is no Forms and Autofill section in the settings let alone a credit card option.

  1. Click the menu button Button and select Settings.
  2. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

Any help to what's going on would be great.

Firefox 107 (64-bit) on Windows 11

Thanks, Luke

Mic stoped working at some sites after upgrade

I use a web app for learning guitar at https://www.fender.com/play It used the microphone to grade your playing Using Firefox 107.0 (64 bit) under Linux Mint - after a recent upgrade the mic stopped working at this site Fender play says, " Microphone access | We require microphone access to give feedback on your playing | Please click "Allow" or "Share"above to provide it for us."

But 'old' dialog box requesting permission never shows up. Address bar shows 'mic icon', but clicking on it does nothing

If I google "mic test" the mic seems to work fine at a "testing" site

I think Fender actually uses MatchMySound1.com to analyze -- Has some setting permission possibly changed? Works in Firefox 102.5esr using Debian

BTW: = Settings | Privacy & Security | microphone [settings] doesn't seem useful

Thanks in advance

I tried to log in to thunderbird, but my password is no longer accepted. My name ([edited] @gmail.com) seems OK.

I need two-step authentication, but thunderbird does not offer this.

I reinstalled thunderbird, and it remains unusable.

I'm getting old, so I guess I'll have to start writing down passwords.

Looking up a password on my Firefox Security Manager for Passwords, I am noticing the name of the page is called Logins and Passwords and does not have a security lock on the search engine. Is this meaning my passwords are not secure? I think I read anything that does not have a Lock on it is not secure. Please let me know.
