Back in November 2023 I had the misfortune of a software engineer not doing his job correctly and he reinstalled the OS on my laptop instead of repairing some software that wasn't functioning correctly. Mercifully, I have had Microsoft support working on recovering my data, which has proved a tremendous task. 4 months and counting.


We have now finally managed to recover my passwords for my browsers, but they are encrypted. Microsoft Support have therefore asked if Mozilla do a decryption tool as they cannot open the file without it being decrypted first. If I was using Microsoft Edge, they would have been able to assist as that is a Microsoft product, but as Firefox is a third party application, they've asked for assistance. By the way, these are NOT scammers or hackers 'helping' me, but Microsoft support and I get everything emailed about our support etc.

Thanks in advance.

If you do not see an 'Evaluate' button, press Return or Enter on your keyboard.

When prompted with the confirmation dialog box, click the Reset button.

The problem is that I don't see an "EVALUATE" button

This after I upgraded to the latest version of Thunderbird.

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

I just updated to Firefox 120, and tried the new GPC setting (Tell websites not to sell or share my data). I ran into a problem when I went to the Xfinity community forums (https://forums.xfinity.com/) . It causes a banner on top showing they recognize the setting. There is an "X" in the corner, and some text that says "Hide this banner", but they are not active. Plus, I cannot make a new post or do a general reply (that weird forum software has both local replies to a particular post and general replies to the general thread.)

Is this a bug in Firefox, or a bug in their forum software? I attached a picture of the message it gives.

Later version refuses to connect to my modem, and goes into security web mode. This modem uses HTTP/HTTPS for access, i.e., connects directly it's IP address, then the user enters a username and password. At that point, the the modem switches to HTTPS for control.

With this recent update, there is NO WAY to access the modem for any work, or upgrade the HTTPS certificate on the modem. This is a BUG.

What should happen is that if the web site will accept a HTTP connection, Firefox should NOT refuse connection or test for security issues UNTIL the user or the device switches to HTTPS.

As an aside, I've used Firefox on this Zywall modem for years until recently.

OAuth2 access to gmail fails in Thunderbird

I have been successfully using Thunderbird (TB) with gmail for years, including via OAuth2 after gmail started requiring it. However, recently one of my gmail accounts stopped working. This seems to have happened when gmail incorrectly thought that I was attempting access from a new client or a new computer and required that OAuth2 authorization be re-established. Now any attempt to access the account from Thunderbird (receiving or sending mail) results in the OAuth2 pop-up window requesting that I allow Thunderbird to access my gmail account. I select "allow", the pop-up closes, and Thunderbird shows "Host contacted, sending login information..." but it never succeeds. After about 2 minutes, it times out with no further message. I have a second gmail account configured in the same instance of Thunderbird, and it continues to work without difficulty; for that account, gmail has not required that OAuth2 authorization be re-established. I am running TB 114.4.1 on Windows 10. I have ensured that cookies are enabled in TB and local storage of passwords in TB is disabled. In my Google account (the one that does not work in TB), I see that access for Thunderbird has been enabled.

I have tried many things, including moving my TB profile to a different folder and uninstalling/installing TB cleanly (no pre-existing profile). Attempting to set up the gmail account in the new installation fails in the same way, when trying to get OAuth2 authorization. Attempting to set up the other gmail account, which was previously working, now also fails. By moving my old profile back to its normal location and re-installing TB, I can get back to where I was (one gmail account works, the other fails).

I have access to another computer, belonging to a friend, also running Windows 10 and having TB installed. In that instance of TB, I tried creating an account tied to the gmail account that is not working in my computer. There I was able to set up OAuth2 access successfully. That TB installation is old, running version 91.7.0. I tried installing TB 91.7.0 on my computer, but there the OAuth2 authorization process still fails.

I have read RFC 6749, which describes how OAuth2 works. It says:

  "The abstract OAuth 2.0 flow illustrated in Figure 1 describes the
  interaction between the four roles and includes the following steps:
  (A)  The client requests authorization from the resource owner.  The
       authorization request can be made directly to the resource owner
       (as shown), or preferably indirectly via the authorization
       server as an intermediary.
  (B)  The client receives an authorization grant, which is a
       credential representing the resource owner's authorization,
       expressed using one of four grant types defined in this
       specification or using an extension grant type.  The
       authorization grant type depends on the method used by the
       client to request authorization and the types supported by the
       authorization server.
  (C)  The client requests an access token by authenticating with the
       authorization server and presenting the authorization grant.
  (D)  The authorization server authenticates the client and validates
       the authorization grant, and if valid, issues an access token.
  (E)  The client requests the protected resource from the resource
       server and authenticates by presenting the access token.
  (F)  The resource server validates the access token, and if valid,
       serves the request."

Apparently the failure is occurring at step (C) or (D). Either TB fails to request the token correctly, or the authorization server fails to issue the token. Step (B) succeeds; the pop-up requests my username and password, and those are accepted; if I intentionally type the wrong password, it fails.

I still have access to my mail in the problematic gmail account using gmail's web client, but I really need access via a client on my own computer, preferably TB, so that I can store messages locally and sort/access them in more flexible ways.

Please help. I've been struggling with this for many weeks, and I've spent countless hours trying to fix it.

Windows 10 22H2, Thunderbird 115.5

Thunderbird periodically loses my saved passwords (11 accounts) necessitating the re-entry of said passwords. This has been happening for about six to eight months.

I have searched for solutions and have tried deleting the pkcs11.txt and secmod.db files but the problem reoccurs. There is no rhyme or reason as to how often this happens. If I new where the passwords were stored, I could copy the good password file back into the thunderbird directory.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
