I have been using the website URL: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ for several years.

I just got a new computer and downloaded Firefox to use as my preferred browser, but when I attempt to open the above website, I get the message Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

I cannot find any workaround which will let me access this site. I am NOT concerned about the site security as it is a UK GOV website. Microsoft Edge will open the website without any issue, why won't Firefox?

How do I get routine access to it through Firefox?

Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Ever since a recent update to Thunderbird, each time I delete a message I must respond to the following: "The messages you have deleted can be purged from disk. This operation will save about 21.8 Mb of disk space. Select the option below to let Thunderbird do this automatically without asking you. Remove message deletions automatically and do not ask me. Proceed Cancel". In order to avoid inadvertent deletions I prefer to occasionally use the Empty Deleted command. How to I get Thunderbird to stop forcing me to respond to the preceding message.

I have just made the mistake of downloading one of the almost daily "updates".

It has totally f'd-up my files. All the read emails have disappeared - I needed to respond to some of them. I have a folder "Retain" - this has been cleared of all these important emails. There's now f'all in my Archives.

There's an old maxim - If it aint broke - don't fix it! For crissake - learn and observe it!

Recently, it seems, Moz has been afflicted with some ninny-nanny who is determined to change everything - perhaps they imagine they are improving stuff - they aren't!

Prior to this update 78.5.0 the main menu words were legible (now mid grey on pale grey when I'm working elsewhere, almost invisible to older eyes), menus have lost all colour, the viewing pane has lost its - button to shrink the header to 2 lines. And there's this perpetual annoying message demanding I purge deleted files and no way of saying not to continue nagging me. All retrograde steps and, being a mere user, I don't want to fiddle with code to repair the damage, as advised in other help topics.

Hey there!

I've upgraded to Thunderbird 78 today, migrated from Enigmail and started playing with the new e2ee feature, everything workeds fine untill I realized that every e-mail reply was auto encrypted.

I'm using an e-mail provider that autmatically encrypts received e-mails on their servers. When Thunderbird fetches these e-mails they are encrypted even if the sender did not encrypt the original message. Since encryption is automatically enabled when replying to enrypted e-mails, which is a good thing, this is however an issue for me. I need to disable encryption manually everythime and I only use encryption with a few persons and most of my communication is in clear text.

There was on option in Enigmail that allowed a specific per e-mail address auto encryption, I couldn't find it in the new e2ee. Any ideas on how to fix/ safely work around this? Many e-mail providers offer encryption at rest for received e-mails and this will be an issue for some people in the future.

Thank you in advance for your help.
