Without notice, Thunderbird today required me to sign-in to my Google account and then produced a window in which it said it wanted to access to my mail, contacts and calendar; in order to compose, send, share, delete permanently, among actions on my personal content. I tried to "Deny" (see below) but the window just returned and returned and could not be deleted. (see "Uploaded images", below for the content of this window).

Is this a scam? Or the result of a hacker?

Hi Again,

I just enabled cookies in order to fix a connection problem with Google and Xfinity. While going through the process, I noticed a Facebook web address was pre-filled, and I immediately deleted it before realizing "block" and "allow" are both on that same page. Can someone please paste that link here so I can put it back where it was?

Thank you!

I sent an email with multiple BCCs and no CCs or TOs, I put myself as one of the BCCs.

I did not receive it and I do not think anybody else did as well since I asked a few people.

The email is in the sent folder. I tried forwarding the email from my sent folder to myself as CC, and that worked. I also tried fowarding as BCC, and that worked.

So what is going on? Is BCC working? How can I know for certain? Do I need to foward the email as BCCs to all my BCCs to get this to work?

Thanks for your help.

Enable/Disable Show Passwords

April 15, 2024 Thunderbird is Insecure There is missing functionality issues

1. How to Disable the "SHOW PASSWORD" Button in Security Settings 2. Either implement with a Password Password option, only to show the Passwords or 3. Allow the ability to Disable the Button

back in 1916-18 the ability to disable the "SHOW PASSWORD" Button worked with with a variation of the following at that time user_pref("pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords", true); I believe I created and used chrome.css or chrome.js

At some point this functionality ceased to work.

Now, I have scoured the Net to figure out a Solution simply setting the value to True, gets reset by Thunderbird, TB does not save it. it always reverts back to False and the button remains available and does not disable

I have tried everything, adding it in user.js, settings.js, userChrome.js I put it in every directory, nothing seems to work

Do I have to Lock it? - How? confusing and disappointing.

Please provide a simple step by step Solution to the problem

Thank you

Privacy issues of HTML and Images in emails

New TB user here, coming from Mac. I notice my emails look very 'old school' - font wise. I THINK it's because TB is showing plaintext whereas Mac Mail was showing me html, it looks that way anyway. Or maybe it's 'rich text' rather than html. I'm not sure, but it got me wondering, are there any major privacy/security risks of viewing html emails rather than plaintext? I automatically block all images in emails, always have. but looking at Mac Mail it doesn't look like i blocked html as some emails (newsletter type things) show some nice background colours and buttons etc, whereas the same email on TB is just basic font text.

I'd like my emails to look a BIT prettier, in all honesty, but not if that opens major security/privacy risks.

Would be grateful if someone could offer their thoughts on the above please
