I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?

Some time a go I've configured access to the smart card in the Spanish id card in Firefox, and it work. But I'm recently trying to use again and it doesn't.

I'm in a Debian 10 with the libpkcs11-dnie installed (with its dependencies) and I've set it up in a firefox-beta. Is where I've added months a go the module (/usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so), then I had logged in and saw the certificate in "Your Certificates".

Since then many updates came but I didn't need again to use this card. I'm trying it now that firefox-beta is 82.0 and the "log in" button is never enabled.

When I've tried with another firefox, for example the esr (78.3.0esr) coming with debian, I have to add this module as it wasn't there. I've clicked "Load" and fill the form with "module name" and "module filename" (the same file that I've mention before) and when I click 'ok', I receive an alert "Unable to add module". Same experience with firefox-stable (81.0.2) and with firefox-devel (82.0b9).

I don't even know if the issue comes from firefox. Is there a way to debug further the origin of this alert message or why this is not being recognized by the application?

Thanks

This just started happening last week: every time I sign into my bank, I'm required to be texted a security code to continue with my banking. It only happens on FireFox, not in Chrome, so it's a browser issue, not the bank. It's so annoying! Any help would be appreciated.

I have been using Firefox for a while. And then I had a different customer laptop which did not have one and I could not install anything. So I used Chrome. Now with a new laptop when I try to import the settings into Firefox, there are multiple duplicate entries found.

Is there an automated way to run through the same and clean it up?

I like to delete all cookies when I close Firefox and have it set accordingly under Cookies and Site Data to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". Under Manage Exceptions, I have added the half a dozen websites that I am happy to Allow cookies. However, when I re-open Firefox, not only does it require me to go through the "accept cookies" process (ie it has deleted all the cookies including my exceptions), but the exceptions that I'd listed have all disappeared. So why isn't the Manage Exceptions not working correctly, please? Any solutions much appreciated. Thanks

Hello all,

I've read some bug reports and discussions about the JNLP files blocked in Firefox ( JNLP should be treated as executable , Should not treat JNLP files as Executables (revert bug 1392955) on ESR-68 , Improve usability for JNLP and other executables and JNLP should not be considered an executable extension ). All I'm understanding is it has been blocked since Firefox 67, then "allowed" back again, then blocked for security purposes in Firefox 78. To sum it up, the bug 1576762 is still open, JNLP are still blocked. Nowadays, it's not possible to directly launch a JNLP file, you've got to download it and run it thereafter. Am I right ?

Also, I've taken note of the Firefox ESR release "too late". I've installed the "mainstream" Firefox release on a server in order to be remotely used by end users (via a RDS server, only to browse a internal website, they can't browse the web). What are the results/differences/cons (except the extended support) ?

Thanks in advance for your replies. Jo.

I BELIEVE, but am not certain, the above described subject and topic are instrumental to the issue I am having. I like to stream a Canadian sports site called Sporstnet Now. Up until a few weeks / months ago every time I clicked to open that site the streaming started automatically. Now that is not happening on a regular basis. Typically when I click on the website it now does not start automatically. To resolve this I can "sign out" and then sign in using my login credentials. This is obviously a time waster. Once I am signed in again, I might be able to stop the streaming and log back in automatically for the next few hours, but certainly by the next morning the streaming does not start automatically and I need to go through the login process described above. There must be a setting somewhere to allow the automatic streaming to start even if I have not visited that website in the last 2 - 3 days. Any help? suggestions? thoughts? Thank you.

Running: WIN 10 PRO FIREFOX 81.0.2 (64-BIT) THUNDERBIRD 68.121 (32-BIT) NORTON SECURITY 22.20.5.39 Xfinity ISP

Ran Thunderbird for years without a problem until 2 days ago, I cannot send or receive email using Thunderbird from my pc or other devices. When attempting to get new mail, receive following: “Alert from account [email@comcast.net temporarily blacklisted IP Address”. Also receive following error message “Login to server imap.comcast.net with username [email]@comcast.net failed” Attached is screenshot showing both alert and error messages. I attempted several times “Retry” and re-entering password. All attempts failed! I can log on to Xfinity.NET on the internet via Firefox, retrieve, read and send mail from Xfinity.net website. I cannot do the same using Thunderbird. Attempted fixes to include: disconnect of Norton anti-virus/firewall, reset password on Xfinity, reset WINS to an earlier date, use a different modem, changed passwords, all failed to fix problem. I am not a technical savvy individual and really need help in solving this problem, can someone help me: • Who has “blacklisted” my email? Comcast, Firefox, Thunderbird, Norton, WIN 10? • What has caused this to happen? • What do I need to do rectify the problem and get Thunderbird working again? Greatly appreciate any assistance you can give me.

Regards, Ed [email]@comcast.net

I just discovered a gigantic security flaw. If I go back in my history, I can pull up a website such as Experian credit boost. When I pull it up, The logon screen appears and I can see the number of digits that my password contains. NOW I thought that was very bad, however, I can click on the eyeball and the password is fully revealed. what is this about?? I mean anyone with access to this history link can get my password??? As a lifelong insurance man, I am very paranoid about security but broke down and started using Lockwise. Does that have anything to do with it? Need help immediatly.

why cannot we permanently get rid of the datareporting folder that is created in the profiles folder? It has been stated before that "no data is collected" yada yada yada when the particular options are set, and they are, yet the folder still reappears. I so not allow tab restore, all privacy settings are set to prevent this that i can find; changed in about:config toolkit.telemetry.unified to false toolkit.telemetry.enabled to false datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled to false toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled to false user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false); user_pref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.unified", false);

Stop it please. It slows down page loads and if, IF, no data is collected, why create it???
