Hi,

I found some discussion related (https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/disable-add-ons-on-specific-website/33693) but no solution yet.

This is imho a big flaw in the privacy of users.

There are trivial cases, for example if I use a YouTube downloader plugin, I obviously want it to monitor my browsing ONLY when I'm on youtube.com...

And there are some critical cases: when I browse my web banking, or when I go on some trading website, I don't want my financial operations to be at risk because of an add-on that is very useful everywhere but on those site.

However, I don't want to exclude all the add-ons for those website too, that would be just too much.

I think there's already a coding base in place, since you can disable each add-on when using private windows. This could be enhanced by having a system of whitelist/blacklist instead. And this feature would actually make more sense than using a private window.

Another way would be to have this feature on per container, instead of per website, than would work well too.

People have different activities, and some requires useful plugins, that are very specific. I mean Keepass's add-on (for example) is useful everywhere, but many add-ons are related to one activity at a time.

For example, if I'm a marketer and want to analyze website, I'll use add-ons for having stats on metadata or keywords or even real time reports from Alexa or from AliExpress, etc...

But when I'm reading my email, I'm not happy those add-ons can see my data.

That would be tedious to disable all those plugins every time I change activity, especially since we are productive humans so obviously we need to alternate those activities doing multitask all the time.

And the private window option is not flexible enough for that kind of multitasking, when containers are.

I hope this helps everyone understand clearly why I think my request is not only a real user need, but also currently a flaw in users privacy since most people will not trade the comfort of their add-ons for some privacy concern they don't always understand...

I know this is some kind of feature request more than ask for help, but https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/ is out of service so I don't know where to address my concern here.

Thanks for helping me pushing this idea forward.

The check box 'Ask to save logins and passwords for web sites' keeps unchecking itself. It used to work fine. Now, it doesn't. And consequently, the sub-item 'Autofill logins and passwords' won't work either.

Every time I open the browser to login to a website that has the login details saved, nothing happens. I have to go into settings every time and re-check the main checkbox (i.e. 'Ask to save...') in order to also activate 'Autofill...'.

This is really frustrating and annoying. Why won't the box stay checked? Hope you can come up with an answer. Many thanks.

Please help recover my many passwords. Win7 had gotten corrupted; so I had a shop install Win10.

In prep, I did a backup with the SW bundled with my USB Seagate BackupPlus. On the same drive, I did a backup with Win7's backup tool. I exported bookmarks.html and bookmarks.json to the drive being upgraded.

The shop saved & restored ONLY the tree under users/ ... and likely, not all of that. Searching what was restored yields no match for "appdata", "prefs.js", etc

Worse, the backups I took with the Win7 and Seagate tools also seem to lack the files needed to restore my many site passwords. I'm hoping you can tell me how to recover those passwords.

I am using the latest Thunderbird 91.2.1 under Windows 10.

Passwords are not being saved even when I click to save with password manager.

Older posts suggest deleting:

  \Users\userid\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\defaultProfile\pkcs11.txt
  

but this file is not present in the latest version.

An earlier version of Thunderbird was uninstalled before the latest version was downloaded and installed.

When I go to Truist.com, my recently merged bank, it remembers my userid OK, but fills in the password field with about 200 random ASCII characters. I tried to delete and re-establish the saved password, but Firefox either gets messes it up or more likely the web site messes it up. The result is that the true saved password in lost and the ASCII rubbish re-appears.

Work-around is to not let Firefox save the password for this site. It works A-OK with the other 150 or so passwords. Check out the screen shot attached.

Luv Firefox, even donate once in a while.

Thank you,

I've been using an older version of Thunderbird for years without issue to sign into my POP3 optimum online mail server. I recently "updated" so I could get the "Remove Duplicate Emails" plugin working.

I now have the issue I've seen mentioned here numerous times: I can no longer save my password. I have to manually input it every time I open Thunderbird. If I enter my password and sign in, my mail works fine.

If I check the box to remember my password, it no longer connects to the server. Instead it attempts to connect for a few minutes, then gives me a "mail server timed out" error.

My saved passwords list is completely blank. There is only one profile folder in the Thunderbird profiles directory.

I have tried deleting/renaming the following files in the profile folder: - key3.db (does not reappear after new version, probably legacy) - key4.db - cert9.db - signons.sqlite (has also not reappeared after removing)

I have seen it also advised to delete/rename the following files, but they do not exist in my local profile folder: - pkcs11.txt - logins.json

I am not using CC cleaner or any other programs to scrub passwords.

I recently came across a website listing adjustments to Firefox's about:config settings. These are supposedly done to help make the browser more secure. Modifications to browser.safebrowsing.phishing.enabled,and after, are what I'm most curious about - mostly since the name Google is attached.

I understand a lot can change within a year, but before breaking something, I wanted to ask if changing any of the above settings, particularly those having to do with Google, will cause damage to the browser itself. -thx

When deleting Firefox' history I can choose to clear "active logins" and/or "cookies". But "cookies" are mostly used to store information about "active logins". So there seems to be some overlap. I'm interested in the technical difference between the two. I suspect "active logins" is clearing only session cookies, while "cookie" is clearing also/only non-session cookies? But I haven't been able to find reliable documentation on these details. Could someone help me out?

Hi. Has anyone noticed that the password you can set within the program doesn't actually do anything to stop someone from reading the e-mails? I noticed this by just clicking "x" to exit the notification of having to enter the password. After pressing "x" 3 times, it didn't ask me again and I can freely look around all the e-mails I have stored.

Is that supposed to happen? I'd rather if the password stopped anyone from being unable to read the e-mails stored. Isn't that the idea of having a password on the program?

Kind regards,
