Greetings, and thanks, again, for all the nifty Mozilla stuff we've been using since the last century (and donating). Once upon a time, there was an add-on that allowed Thunderbird users to export a simple list containing account info including login names and passwords. I think it quit working around version 57 of TB. Since then, it would appear that several users have inquired about how to do that export, and the general answers are either "use the import/export function" or "you can't do that anymore, 'cause we don't want you to," or something equally off putting. As many users note, the Import/Export function is a shotgun approach, and doesn't really address the matter of getting username and password - let alone a simple list thereof. And it's not recommended for profiles over 2GB, which could be the majority of users, these days. And so, on to the questions: Is there now, in 2024, or will there be, a feature or add-on of Mozilla's Thunderbird that will allow a user to export a simple list of usernames and passwords to a readable file, like CSV or TXT or XLSX or ODT? If so, when? If not, why not? Thanks, again (again).

I've encountered one message in Thunderbird that has remote content enabled (which I don't recall explicitly enabling). In Settings, under "Allow remote content in messages" (unchecked), the "Exceptions..." list is empty. I've also cleared the cache, switched to offline mode, and went back to that message, but it still shows remote content.

Encrypt outgoing messages with Thunderbird such that I cannot access them

A bit of an odd request, I know, but I'm trying to send encrypted email from Thunderbird such that only the recipient, and not the sender (me) can access the message once it has been sent. I direct Thunderbird not to save a copy in the "Sent" folder when I do this, but Thunderbird still encrypts the message such that my personal key can decrypt it. Is it possible to send a message that can only be decrypted with one key? I have access to the recipient's private key, if that helps.

I have been using TB for a long time, currently 115.11.1 (64-bit)

Out of the blue I have started to get on loading up TB: Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Thunderbird detected a potential security threat and did not continue to live.thunderbird.net. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

Can you please advise?

Thanks

Hi! I would like to use Thunderbird with an email account provided by my university. It uses the gmail web client and is provided through google workspace (I believe). The login process involves a redirect to the campus authentication page, with a DUO 2FA ping. Is there a way to add this account to Thunderbird? Programs like Gnome Online Accounts allow me to add this as a google account and then follow the usual process in a web browser window. However, when I try this on Thunderbird, I get as far as granting access through Google's system, but then the system exits with "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password." Is there a way to set this up correctly? It looks like it almost works.

I have spent the last TWO HOURS trying to find an answer to what should be a simple problem, and it seems not to exist!

I need to find out WHERE Firebird lists my email account PASSWORD.

I do NOT want to reset my password.

I simple need to know WHAT my password is, and since I set up the account [actually a few accounts] several years ago, my notes are evidently null and void, because none of those passwords seem to work.

My email is through verizon.net, which is one of the problems because they gave all of their email coltrol to AOL, which thouroughly sucks, and they seem not to have anyone who speaks fluent English who can assist me in FINDING the current password!

If ANYONE can help, it would be most greatly appreciated!!

I am using Mozilla Firefox on MS Windows 10. I want to add an autoconfig file to lock some preferences. As per this doc firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js need to be saved in the same directory where firefox is installed. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-autoconfig

I had downloaded firefox from the Microsoft store. Firefox is installed in the %programfiles%/WindowsApps folder, which is owned by 'trusted installer'. Because of this a normal user cannot write to this folder, not even with Admin access.

Is there a way to set auto config without changing folder permissions? Can I save the firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js somewhere else other than the install folder?
