I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox as the default browser on my Android phone. When I used Chrome, I received emails from advocacy groups asking me to petition my government representatives to take action on specific issues. If I agree, I am directed to a web page where a form is already filled out with my personal information because it remembers that I have taken action on some issue in the past. Obviously, my time is saved by not having to fill out the form each time. However, with Firefox some of these forms are not filled out, and when I tap on different fields, no drop-down menu appears with past entries. I’ve gone to Firefox’s Settings and see that “Autofill in Firefox” is on by default, so I don't know what else to do. This problem occurs on some web pages, not all. Please advise. Thank you.

I have noted from a web search that the subject of Javascript in Firefox (Android) has caused issues for some users of this browser.

I understand that JavaScript is now enabled by default in the standard version of Firefox (Android). It appears that once upon a time there was a config setting that could be tweaked to switch JavaScript on or off, but that setting may no longer work. Additionally, I also understand there are add-ons for the Android version of Firefox that can, amongst other things, apparently switch JavaScript on or off.

People here might be surprised to learn that the minimalist Firefox Focus (Android) browser already has a built-in, easily accessible, switch to turn JavaScript on or off:

Settings > Privacy & Security > Web Content > Block JavaScript

So, the point I would like to raise with Mozilla (but it seems to be impossible to contact them directly) is, if it is available in Firefox Focus (Android), why the heck is this switch not available in the mainstream, standard version of Firefox (Android)? It makes absolutely no sense not to have it, surely?

I would suggest that a good place to include a JavaScript switch would be in the 'Site permissions' section of Firefox (Android) settings. It is merely a suggestion as, for example, within the rather useful competitor Vivaldi (Android) browser there is such a switch located here:

Settings > WEB PAGES > Site settings > JavaScript

As for why there should be a JavaScript switch within Firefox (Android), that question is largely irrelevant. Mozilla have already seen a need to include it in Firefox Focus (Android), so what possible good reason could there be for not including it in Firefox (Android)? It mystifies me, and it's omission is an inconvenience too.

Does anyone here have a sensible answer to this question?

In my cfg file for firefox i use a custom DNS server (Quad 9 which uses 9.9.9.9). It appears this causes DNS Leaks while using a VPN.

The line is this: lockPref("network.trr.uri", "https://dns.quad9.net/dns-query"); Obviously instead of writing 9.9.9.9 this line uses the above shown adress.

If i want to use cloudflare which is 1.1.1.1 instead of 9.9.9.9 what adress do i have to use? Still haven't figured this out...

Hi

I have a thunderbird with 3 google accounts and 2 ovh accounts Since today I'm annoyed with my google (no problem with ovh) accounts that ask me for my password every time I try to search new messages.

I confirm the password, I confirm on my phone that "it's me", I confirm that I validated, it seems to work but

- it does not retrieve my new emails
- it asks me again for the password the next time

I am in POP port 995 and SSL/TLS / OAuth2 I tried to delete the saved passwords, to disable the firewall I'm out of ideas...

Thanks in advance for your help

Trojan infection on IMAP

I have a new Windows 11 computer and I have been using Thunderbird on previous computers for more years than I care to admit, pretty much since its inception.

Yesterday I received an expected email with several PDF files attached. One by one I opened them and printed the files then, at a certain point I had Windows Defender pop up a warning for a Tojan "Wacatac". In quick succession after that it popped up more warnings for "Wacatac" and "Oneeva".

I immediately closed Thunderbird and ran Defender to remove the threats, which it seemed to do and then gave a clear scan.

Following this I opened Thunderbird again and If I tried to open nearly any attachment the system started working very hard and Thunderbird gave a "Not responding" message. Also at one point I noted that Thunderbird reported that it was downloading messages even though there were no new messages.

At is time I started to get a huge number of warning messages with more malware than I bothered to record but I noticed a downloaded and various advertising or redirection malware.

I then detached all of the PDF files in the suspect email and scanned them separately - they did not result in any infection. I then deleted the email in question. My assumption was that the files themselves were downloaded directly from the server and that perhaps the infected file was somehow concealed.

I noted that all of the infected files reported by Defender where in a profile inbox folder for my IMAP server. This is normally a hidden folder so I had to turn on viewing of hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer. I reasoned that since I was using IMAP and hoped that the files on my email server were not infected (except the mail that I had deleted) I could safely delete the entire inbox folder and let Thunderbird re-build it the next time I used it.

For precaution I also downloaded and installed the latest version of Thunderbird over my existing installation.

All this was a bit intuitive as I had no idea how or if it would work.

I am pleased to say that the combination of deleting the suspected infected mail, deleting the IMAP inbox folder, and reinstalling TB over the existing installation seems to have resolved the problem. When I restarted Thunderbird it re-created the profile folder that I had deleted and I was able to open various attachments without encountering the problem. Logically it seems that I may have been correct that the Trojan was hidden amongst the attachments in the suspect email and I have reported to to the sender.

I will now have to be very careful of any signs that I may have had theft of passwords. Fortunately most important sites use 2 step security. I really don't want to have to find and change all my passwords :(

Any comments would be gratefully accepted, though I do seem to have resolved the problem myself.

Hello,

I am unable to remember my Firefox account password after re imaging my computer. Fortunately, I did create and save my recovery keys.

I've reviewed the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/reset-your-firefox-account-password-recovery-keys

However, when I click the pass reset link in the email as dictated in step 2 under the 'Reset your password with your recovery keys' section, I do not see any fields to enter my recovery key as highlighted in step 3. I haven't taken this step yet because I do not want to lose my password and bookmark information associated to my account.

Can you please confirm how to utilize my recovery codes?

Thank you for your time.

Reinstalling Thunderbird hasn't helped, currently running version 91.10.0 on 64-bit Windows 10 (the problem occured right after installing thunderbird and exists since then). I already tried to generate a new private key, but the problem remains the same.
