I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

In last 24 hours or less I upgraded to 91.11.0 and now I have 102! Question is will Thunderbird 102 support TLS 1.2 or higher when used with Ionos. And why am not able to sync all emails in sub folders in my account with Ionos. I know it is a Ionos question but they have not yet answered my question.

I have been using Thunderbird for 25 years now. I downloaded latest version this afternoon but have no clue how long it has been available or what version I had prior to downloading 91.11.0 I use imap.ionos.com and smtp.ionos.com for a really long time. Problem is I had a lot of subfolders with many emails in each one I can see on my ionos.com log into site using Firefox but not anymore with Thunderbird 91.11.0 and current version of Firefox. There are only like 5 usual folders of I received an email from ionos yesterday saying.

Below is from Ionos to me and my email account.

"One or more of your devices or email programs are currently accessing our email servers unencrypted or using the TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 encryption protocols. This includes connections using SMTP (for sending emails) and/or POP3/IMAP (for receiving emails). Both unencrypted access and connections using the outdated TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 encryption protocols no longer meet current security standards. To protect your email communications, these connections to our email servers will no longer be possible as of 08/09/2022. What does this mean for you? The following email accounts were accessed without encryption: my email address is here *****@*******.com I block letters and numbers. Please make sure that encryption (SSL/TLS) is enabled in your devices or programs. We have summarized how to adjust the settings for some popular email programs in the IONOS Help Center. The following email accounts were accessed with TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1:

            • @********.com

For email connections between your devices or programs and our email servers to continue working after deactivation, they must support TLS 1.2 or higher."

I really like Thunderbird. Please tell me what is wrong and how to fix. And I called Ionos.com and they could not help with Thunderbird or with TLS 1.2 or higher. Please

It seems that there was an internal page for permissions, namely about:permissions. As I was trying to find an answer to my question, I found many volunteers at Mozilla Support would talk about this, but what I'm asking for is different. I'm looking for a way to list websites per permission, that is, when I want to disable a permission for a bunch of websites at once, I specify the permission and remove the websites I do not want to have that permission. In one of the questions on the site, an extension called SQLite Manager was mentioned and seemed to be the solution. This extension, though, doesn't exist anymore. If what I'm looking for can be done through this extension, I'd like to know if there is an alternative. If it doesn't serve the purpose that I am talking about, I'd be happy to know if there is a different workaround.

I am updating thunderbird for my gmail account logins for several machines. In security settings, I changed the authentication method from normal password to 0auth2 for incoming and outgoing servers. Upon initial login by thunderbird to gmail after the changed setting, gmail sends a verification window which requests your user name, password and authorization for gmail to allow thunderbird access to my gmail account. The windows 11, 10 and windows 7 (yes don't laugh) machines allowed for smooth verification. My windows ViSTA machine provided a gmail window for verification but it arrives blank - there are no written words or fields to fill out with my username, password or authorization - I am aware about "non support" for older operating systems but there must be a way to obtain data on the verification screen - windows 7 machines worked ok - what may be the solution for the Vista machine (a gateway desktop with who knows what chip that was the cat's meow back then). Don't want to trash the machine. All was OK until June 1st gmail compliance procedures. Thanks all.

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered - I have this ticked but when I restart Firefox, it is UNticked. I created a new clean profile, and the same thing happens with that. This started I think once I updated to version 102.0 64bit recently, and seems to have broken Twitter login - each time I have to go to settings, and clear history - after doing some experiments as to what bit of History needed clearing, it was the setting "offline site data" that was the critical one. Why won't Firefox, even in a brand new profile with no addons, REMEMBER that I have ticked ""Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered"? Firefox desktop, 102.0 64 bit, Windows 7. Thank you.

I've been locked to google safe-search while on Firefox for a few days, despite my settings being set to unlock. After having gone through various settings, including my AV I noticed that I had a strange looking symbol in my URL bar that was forcing safe=active on all google searches.

I have TrafficLight by Bit-defender Installed, and I noticed this symbol looked the EXACT same but belonged to another extension that I DID NOT install myself.

The name of the offending extension is "Preview of Parental Control: Family Friendly Filter" by Media Partners. [LINK] : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/family-friendly-filter/

The company name is Sketchy and I worried where it came from. I have uninstalled it, but I am seeking direction regarding where it may have come from. Could someone look at the extension and advise??

I would like to know why, when Thunderbird first starts up or shortly thereafter, it attempts to connect to the following sites:

detectportal.firefox.com status.geotrust.com thunderbird-settings.thunderbird.net

It does not need to connect to any of these to send or receive email, so I would like to know why it's attempting to connect to those addresses. Little Snitch is blocking them for now but if one of them is important I can remove that block.

Also, at some point every day, Thunderbird complains that it can't get the latest version, and every day I have to dismiss that popup. I bring this up because it may be related to me blocking the connections but until I know what they are for I'd like to know if it is possible to make Thunderbird stop checking for updates.

They all concern me but the one that really concerns me is thunderbird-settings.thunderbird.net, first because it is listed as a bad address on one of the malware sites, and second because I don't want my settings being sent off my computer. Really the only reason I want Thunderbird to connect to the Internet is to send and receive mail, and maybe to check for updates if it can do ONLY that, and not send any other data from my computer back to the mothership.

My TB profile is on my home NAS, which has worked fine until I installed TB 102 (64-bit). Now when I enter my account password and check the Save Password box, login to the account fails and the password is not saved. I can access my accounts if I don't check the Save Password box.

I've tried deleting the key4.db and cert9.db files. While they are recreated, it doesn't fix the problem. There are no file called "logins*" in the profile directory, which I've seen mentioned in previous discussions of this type of problem.

I used Sysinternals PROCMON to try and get some idea what's going on; i.e., what files are referenced when saving passwords. I did notice repeated attempts to read key4.db at offset 24 , length 16 which always failed with NETWORK_ERROR. Other accesses to key4.db succeeded.

I have programming experience and am willing to use the Debugger under Developer Tools. I just have no idea what to look for.

Thnk you for any suggestions you can provide.

My "save" passwords is enable, but I am not being prompted to save the login information for new websites as well as websites that are already saved but I have more than one logins.

I thought if I edit one login, I could add or the system would ask me to replace or save as new, but it doesn't and I can't find why is it that I am not being prompt to save the information.

Not sure if its just this one page or other websites and it is just a setting that influence this behavior.

Hi, been using Thunderbird for decades and been of Office/Microsoft 365 for several years.

All of a sudden TB demands I re-enter the password? Enter correct password but goes into a loop. Check passwords in Passwords and they are correct. Logon to Office 365 manually and they work. Use e-mail with Outlook and all OK. Change the password but it still happens.

Was on TB 91.11.10 and upgraded to 102.0 (both 64 bit) but it has made no difference.

TB has got itself into a loop. What is wrong and how do I resolve this?

I recently had to re-install Thunderbird in Win 10 laptop and now there is never any saved password and like others I have to continually enter it but it never shows up in the password manager -it is empty. I used an old default profile from the laptop that died which had no problems with passwords or email,but since using that profile ,(which is over 6 months old and was all I had), on a new download and install I have the password issue,so how do I use a profile to reinstall,get my password saved but not loose any more stored emails?

I recently returned from vacation and after being gone two weeks I noticed the three Gmail accounts that I use Thunderbird to access were missing some of the inline graphics that I could see if I went to Gmail directly. At login I am receiving a Secure Connection Failed message each time I get into Thunderbird. It seems I'm getting all my email, just not some of the inline graphics on individual emails. I've received messages from Mozilla saying an update to Thunderbird was available however, when I click update, I receive the Secure Connection Failed message again. Today I physically downloaded the most current version of Thunderbird (102.0 64 bit) but after the install, nothing relating to the inline graphics had changed. Based on an article that I saw under Mozilla Support - Thunderbird ("Automatic Conversion of Google mail accounts to OAuth 2.0 Authentication") I also checked some of my settings. I verified that all three of my Gmail accounts that I use Thunderbird to access utilized OAuth2. The field Accept cookies from sites is checked. The javascript.allow.mailnews is set to "true". In Saved Passwords I see oauth entries for each username in the form of oauth://accounts.google.com(https://mail.google.com/ …).

If anybody could provide some assistance, I sure would appreciate it. Thanks
