Firefox reports a secure connection without existing certificate

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

I just installed Thunderbird on a new Windows 10 PC yesterday. Everything worked, for a while.

When I went to use TB later at night I could not open TB & got a message it was already running but not responding. There were 2 instances showing in Task Manager but I could not close them. Sometimes when I tried a message came up saying "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied". I had to power off the PC to clear out TB.

TB was working again but just to be safe I uninstalled and reinstalled it. And it continued to work after that. Until this morning, and now the same problem.

In addition, when I went to use Firefox it now had the same problem. FF was installed several days ago but there never was a problem till now. There were several instances of FF in Task Manager and I could end most of them, but there was one where I got the "The operation could not be completed" and "Access is denied".

Now the PC was stuck with TB and FF that could not be closed, and I had to power off the PC to clear them out.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be appreciated. Thanks

I have a number of problems with T/Bird which I suspect are all connected: Occasionally an email appears momentarily in in box then instantly disappears and cannot be found in other boxes - drafts, all mail, trash or spam. Some emails by-pass in box to spam but there is no pattern to this. Emails from same source can go to either. Often emails I have sent do not appear in sent or all mail, and some emails I have sent to trash cannot be found. I have followed advice and checked settings several times and as far as I can see they are all correct. Is this a common problem and do you have step by step instructions to overcome this? One obvious answer is to uninstall and re-install T/Bird but being old and not tech savvy I am concerned about losing emails and not being able to start again Thanks

Latest release Thunderbird 91.0.3 x64 hangs when entering Preferences. It is very slow scrolling after that and total hang on in a few seconds.

OS is Win 10 Pro x64 21H1.

Also I cannot find the way how to open Config Editor - there is no appropriate tab in Preferences (as far as I see before hang on).

Regardless of what version and CPU architecture of Thunderbird is installed, the auto updater keeps telling me that it cannot update Thunderbird and suggests that I visit Thunderbird's website to download the latest version.

Searches related to this problem all either involve Avast antivirus, which I am not using (I use F-Secure TOTAL) or very obsolete versions. To the best of my knowledge, I do not have any specific website blocked in my network, apart from Facebook, and despite searching, I cannot find out any debug options to determine the cause of the update failure.

I have tried uninstalling the product and reinstalling it, also changing between 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Currently running 78.9.1 64-bit under Windows in the Release channel.

Does anyone have an explanation or solution?

I have an Xfinity/Comcast POP email account through Thunderbird.

For years, I have reliably used the Download/Sync Now button under the Get/Send Messages tab to sync my email back to the server (i.e. delete emails from the server which I've trashed on the Thunderbird client).

Suddenly, out of the blue, and without changing any settings, this feature no longer works, and emails I delete on the Thunderbird client remain on the server.

Since before the last update to Thunderbird, it constantly freezes and locks up my whole computer to the point where I have to shut my iMac down with the start button. It has actually gotten worse since the most recent update. I have used Thundirbird for over 10 years and never had a problem with it until now. It also will spontaneously close an email while I am trying to read it. This is very annoying and if this keeps up and I can't find a solution I will change my email program.

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.

Each time I create a 'New Folder' under InBox, the new folder does not appear unless Thunderbird is terminated then restarted. This was first noticed when attempting to make a filter, and moving a message to the newly created folder; the folder was not listed as an option. Checking under the InBox an sure enough the folder was not there. Terminated Thunderbird, then restated, checked under InBox and the folder was there. Was then able to successfully create the new filter.

I would like to block some sites (entire domains) from injecting JWPlayer iframes while I'm trying to read the site. (The Hill, https://thehill.com, is particularly annoying with this.) However, I need to see content that some other sites embed in JWPlayer, so I can't use the nuclear option of blocking the cdn for jwplayer in my hosts file.

Are there any settings or add-ons available that allow by-domain blocking of JWPlayer? (I don't care if it's a "whitelist" or "blacklist" approach, so long as I can manually determine which sites play and which don't.)

I can interact with the search but I can't see what I'm pressing for obvious reasons. I have tried clearing the cache and even reinstalling it but with no success.

Hello, I am at a loss to trying to fix a problem after extensive troubleshooting. When I am on Facebook for about five minutes, Firefox stops loading most images. This only occurs with Firefox, not Safari or Chrome. And it only occurs with Facebook and Instagram, which is owned and run by Facebook. I have to restart Firefox to get images back and then after five minutes or so, it happens again every time. Can anyone help? This is driving me crazy!

I migrated from Windows Live Mail to TB. As recommended, I installed Ver 31, transferred the files, email and contacts. It all seems to work, picks up and sends email. I understood that it was supposed to upgrade to the latest version. The Help menu shows that this (31) IS the latest version. When I manually upgrade to 91, It will not stop asking me for the password, no matter how many times I enter it. I have checked that the server settings are all the same. What am I supposed to do here? Is there a fix for this? Dougal

Hi, it's been a while since I used Firefox and I don't seem to have a way of getting back into Sync with my primary e-mail address since I can't find my backup code. Who do I contact to either get my account deleted so I can start again, or get an account reset option set to my e-mail address? Ultimately none of my devices are logged in, and I cannot find my backup code.

The impression I have so far is that you have to sign in with another e-mail account (which is what I have done now), but this is not the e-mail account I want to use.

If Mozilla are storing my name and contact details for the sign in, would the best route be a formal request for deletion of personal data?

Thanks
