I want to use discord in firefox instead of using the pc-program. It appears that my firefox.cfg has some preferences that block discord from gaining microphone access. I never used multiple firefox profiles but that changed now, i created a firefox profile for discord purpose only. However my firefox.cfg is active in both the default and the discord profile, again blocking microphone access.

As i said currently i use firefox.cfg and autoconfig.js to customize firefox preferences, but since this makes it impossible for me to use discord i will have to find another way to modify firefox, so the question is how can i use multiple firefox profiles with different preferences? Can this be done with a user.js file? After all what is the difference between using firefox.cfg and user.js?

Yahoo intruded and functions as default search, even though Google has been and is still designated as default in the settings. I removed Yahoo from the list of 1-click browsers, but that didn't affect its unwanted function as default search. This began out of the blue several days ago, and I have no idea how. I dislike Yahoo in general and have not been on that site. I'm getting really frustrated!

Dear,

I used thunderbird a few years and my current version is 78.6.0 (32bit) now. I set up a few accounts which included yahoo/hotmail and used normal. But early in Nov. my hotmail account cannot receive any email and other yahoo accounts can receive normally.

I checked with Microsoft community and found that I must set up two-step verification on the hotmail account. Therefore I followed the instruction to set up. Then I removed my old hotmail account in thunderbird and re-set up the hotmail account with new two-step verification generated new password in TB. But TB still displayed the message (about cannot access the hotmail server....)

I download the another email software - mailbird and setup hotmail account in that software. I type the same account name, two-step verification generated new password, the same imap/smtp server information. The mailbird can access my hotmail account and receive the email normally.

So, does anybody know what the problem is in thunderbird ? (Because I still want to use the TB for my email software)

Thanks

Hello,

I am getting a McAfee pop up notification and I have identified the site name and would like to add it to the notifications settings to block it but I cannot figure out how to add a site manually to that list. There are no options on the notification settings to allow for a manual site addition. I am on FireFox version 88.0.1 on Windows 10 Pro.

I have also tried searching to see how to remove what is probably malware and cannot find anything. I do not have any McAfee products on my laptop.

Sincerely,

AmazonPrincessDiana

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

After today's update of TB to the latest version (91.8.0), the system still requires a login to a Google account. When I enter the data, nothing happens. I can't download or send any mails.

So far everything worked without problems, the authentication method is specified OAuth2, mail client as POP (not IMAP).

Don't you have any recommendations? thanks, Jan

Thunderbird is on my laptop. If somebody defeats my lock screen (or if I have a negligent moment), I don't want just anybody who accesses my laptop to gain access to my email. It is a security concern (retired CISSP here). Thus, I want to disable password retention. What setting will accomplish that without manually going in at every logout to remove stored passwords? I plan to do some international travel, and the laptop will accompany me.

Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

As Firefox doesn't allow you to prevent updates, is there a way to get the HTTPS switches working, or is this another introduced bug we are supposed to put up with? If I attempt to access my router using 192.168.1.1 Firefox automatically changes the address to https://192.168.1.1. Guess what you morons: NONE OF MY ROUTERS USE HTTPS AND CANNOT BE ACCESSED! Instead I now use Edge which allows what I enter to be used and gives me access. Another reason to dump this crap. Why is it that each and every time I am forced to update: I don't get a choice, I get another reason not to use Firefox. If you charged for this crap the developers would have been sacked long ago. Please don't insult my intelligence by pointing me Privacy & Settings because none of the options make any difference. So when can we expect to get working software?

Since having upgraded Ubuntu to 21.4 I have now Thunderbird 78.11.0 and it appears t automatically encrypt all drafts, without asking for permission, even though encryption is explicitly turned off.

I must have access to my drafts on a mobile device on which I dont have my opengpg key available, and dont want to change that.

y key should not be on a mobile, and the messages dont have secret things.

I looked through all the configs, and searched the web, but I dont appear to have autoencrypt drafts enabled on that account, and dont understand how to disable it.

What can I do?

Firefox update proces is corrupted/hacked to install background update 308046B0AF4A39CB which provides Tr.Gen threat

I can't find anything about a compromised Firefox update while using the browser when you go to help and let the browser update itself. It seems you've been hacked because I can't otherwise explain the firefox background update 308046BoAF4A39CB, which is been detected by my systems. I obviously have more information about this if you like, but I see nowhere how to report this properly. This is the first time this has happened to me, at least as far as I know and so far I've only detected the Tr.Gen threat on my Windows computers. I would like an adequate response from Mozilla on how this could happen and what the repercussions are plus how to avoid this in the future. I've been using the Firefox browser on all my systems with various operating systems and would prefer to keep using it, but not if your own updating process is comprimised. I also think it's idiotic that I can't upload a bigger screenshot than 1024 kb because my very relevant picture is 3084 kb in size.

Sincerely,

I recently changed the Privacy & Security settings in Firefox v100.0.2 (Mac) to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all Windows". Since that change, even though Google is my default search engine, all searches take me to a window that says: "You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of www.searchbaron.com is not available." I did a google search and the recommendation was to delete the searchbaron extension in Extensions but there isn't one there. I like the security of only going to https sites and if possible would like to keep that setting.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix this? Thanks.

About two weeks ago I changed my google password. After I did that, Thunderbird on my primary computer (desktop running Slackware-64 Linux) required that I log into my gmail account again. I went through the steps of entering my email and password, successfully completed the 2-step verification. and gave permission for Thunderbird to access my account. Instead of dealing with my emails as usual, I got a "Secure connection failed" pop-up window. Two strange aspects to all of this: 1) when I did the same thing on my laptop (also running Slackware-64 Linux), everything went fine and I can deal with my gmail account, and 2) the URL at the top of the pop-up window is for my wife's company, clsusonenterprises.com (see attachment). I've tried searching the various forums on the web with no success. Any suggestions are welcomed.

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Hello,

I like Firefox unfortunately all browsers are so 1999... It is impossible to use without addons, if you browser internet a lot and have opened a lot of tabs and windows. I bumped into this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1155401 Saying: this will open another instance of Firefox. But nothing is bulletproof! So ask, if this will isolate me from addons, which I would open in first instance of Firefox.

Thanks for help.
