Hello,

I am writing a Bachelor thesis on the Theme "Data privacy analysis on mobile Android Browser". Therefore I chose Firefox for Android and Firefox Focus ass two of the browsers to compare.

While a lot of information is online available or is presented in the app itself it seems that the following points are not:

- Does Firefox for Android support and implement by default a safe browsing API like Firefox Focus? (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/safe-browsing-firefox-focus)

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus support Secure DNS as the desktop version? If so are these enabled by default?

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus preloads pages while using a search engine in order to increase browsing speed?

- Does Firefox for Android saves Auto-fill form data? If so, how can this data be deleted again?

- Most browsers block in their Site settings "Pop-ups and redirects". Firefox for Android blocks pop-ups and Firefox Focus does not block them. Although I could not find any information regarding the "redirects" aspect. Is Firefox on mobile Devices allowing those?

Thanks in advance for any information!

I am occasionally using an e-mail server with out of date TLS settings. Unfortunately, there is no work around for one particular job that I have to do.

When I first was updated to version 78, I got the error described in the string, "can not send mail after update ver78...." I updated my TLS settings as follows: security.tls.version.min = 1 security.tls.version.enable-deprecated = true

And everything seemed to work. However, today, I can no longer send e-mails with that server. It appears that another update broke things again.

I am currently running 78.10.1 on Windows 10. I can receive e-mail, no problem. With the bad server, a test message appears to be sent and gets put in the sent messages folder but doesn't show up in my inbox on another account. I'm not sure of the date but it appears that a message I sent on April 28 worked.

I'm filing a bug report

Hello, I want to use S/MIME in Thunerbird 78.10.1 (64-bit). In my account settings i've import a .pfx-file. I created this certificate with openssl. I choose this personal certificate for digital signature and encryption (i want to use end-to-end encryption).

If I try to send a signed mail I got an error message: "Application could not find the signing certificate which I choose in my account settings [...]" --> imprecise wording, I am using Thunderbird in German

But I only got this error message, if I choose as encryption technology S/MIME. When I choose OpenPGP as encryption technology I got no error message and the e-mail is sent digital signed.

Where is the problem?

Thanks for help.

Greetings

Hello, sorry for my English. I would like sometimes to launch Firefox behind VPN. I can indeed do it by using options manually, it works perfectly. All along my search, I have found that a private mode launcher can be made ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window). Is there any similar instruction, but for a Firefox manual VPN option activate ? Thank you for your attention.

Every time I open Firefox it asks me for my master password. I have read a lot of forums but nothing has worked. I do not use sync or Windows 10 sync, I doubled checked to make sure they are both off. I have refreshed Firefox to default settings and used with no add ons. The only security software I use is Comodo and I have looked all over for any settings that will effect firefox's memory. Since Firefox won't keep a master password even in default mode I'm thinking its outside Firefox and the only thing that comes to mind is Comodo. I really don't want to remove Comodo and then have to set everything back up. I have quit Comodo but its the same thing.

thank you for any help, this has been driving me crazy!!

Hello everyone,

First of all: Thanks for the great work that you do.

I was once told that there are no stupid questions, but this one might be the exception. Nevertheless I'll ask it:

1. If I use thunderbird with an existing account like hotmail or gmail I need to enter my account credentials in order to establish a connection to gmail, hotmail etc. I read that those credentials are saved in my profile. Is this profile saved only locally or do I transmit my credentials (password etc.) to a server of Mozilla? Short: Do you guys have access to my passwords? (I really hope not or only in an ecrypted form)

2. My mails are saved on your servers, even if only temporarily. So are your server encrypted?

I know that it is not polite to ask to many questions if someone is doing something for free, but this is really decisive for me when it comes to the question of using thunderbird or not... I hope u understand.

Thanks and best regards Claudio

Why do I get this message when I try to go to NBT Banks website: The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to nbtbank.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I only get this on my laptop, my desktop works fine. The settings on both browsers are set the same.

Hello,

I noticed this issue on some online stores recently. The don't have a sign out button anywhere. I tried to clear cache and cookies but nothing worked. I had to delete the FF app and reinstall it. User names and password are not saved. Even on websites I'm not even registered, after clearing the cookies and cache and reopen the browser, the items in my cart are still there.

Hi,

The privacy and security settings don't work on Firefox 88 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS). Many sites will offer the option to 'Login with google/facebook/whatever' rather than creating a new account for that specific site. One really annoying (and dangerous) consequence of 'logging in with google' is that it remains logged in. So for example if I log in to non-google siteX using my google credentials and then hours later open gmail in a different tab I get straight through to my gmail inbox without having to supply any credentials (and indeed any other user of the same machine could do the same). Obviously this highly insecure and dangerous policy of keeping me logged in indefinitely is implemented by Google for their own agenda and has nothing to do with Firefox. The bug in Firefox is that when I clear all data to work around this google problem FIREFOX does not work as advertised. So to try to 'force' a logout from my Google account I go to Firefox -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies & Site Data -> Clear Data, after a few minutes of churning away at my harddrive Firefox informs me that 'Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 bytes of disk space.' For good measure I then hit the 'Clear History' button. After this I open a fresh tab and go to gmail and I get straight into my inbox, no credentials required, so clearly Firfox is NOT deleting all cookies etc and is mis-reporting that 0 bytes are being used. So, does anyone know where/how I should report this dangerous privacy bug ?

Thanks MH
