Firefox currently blocks port 10080 to protect against a presumed security threat. Linksys routers use port 10080 to allow users to log in to the guest network so Firefox has rendered Guest Network logins to be unaccessable forcing router owner to allow "guests" to log in to the the primary lan and potentially cause issues with the very network they are trying to protect from outside issues. Firefox needs to provide a way for guests to log into the guest network within their software... particularly in the ios and android versions of the Firefox apps. Please provide a reasonable workaround so that I don't put my network at risk by allowing guests to log in to my primary network.

Why am I suddenly unable to access websites that I have used for years with no problem. What is going on. I cannot, for example, go to my Facebook page, and I've had trouble accessing my email. What the heck is going on?

I am suddenly unable to access websites, some of which I've viewed for years, like Facebook and my email, for Pete's sake. What is going on? I'm told there's a security risk and there's nothing I can do. What has changed. This is distressing in the extreme. I have put virus protection in place, and use a VPN, so I feel reasonably secure in my online work. Something has changed at Firefox, what the heck is it, and how do I correct it?

my thunderbird email was set up in a way that if i would delete an email on thunderbird it would also delete it from my mail app on my iphone. which is fine but on the other hand when i would delete the email on my phone, it would stay in thunderbird on my pc (which is the way i want it to be). Now for some reason something changed and when i delete an email from my phone it also deletes it from TB on my pc. how do i go back to how it was ? thanks

I see this question has been asked often, but I can't find an answer. So apologies if I waste time repeating other threads.

I keep getting a popup on starting Thunderbird. If may not appear every time, but often. It tells me I cannot upgrade to the latest version and that I need to download a fresh copy. If I dismiss the pop-up, I can continue to use Thunderbird. And if I look under Help, About, it tells me that I have the latest version. If I look further, the version I do have is 102.2.2, which I gather is indeed the latest.

I had Thunderbird set to alert me to new versions so that I then set the upgrade in motion as I also do with Firefox. Of course, that made the popup's pronouncement of failure doubly puzzling, as I had not asked it to try. Further, just in case it might solve this issue, I changed settings so that Thunderbird would update automatically. That has not helped. Same popup message persists.

What can and should I do? Thank you,

I've been 'talking' with a guy for months abut shipping one of my high end gazebo kits to Egypt. I'm getting the feeling though that he's maybe trying to scam me.

He's been emailing me from Texas but says he's now in Australia for a week. Is there any way you can see, by looking at the Header / whatever, if this latest email from him came from Australia? If it didn't I'll know for sure it's a scam.

On September 20,2022 I upgraded my Thunderbird account to the last version 102.3. When I was deleting a message on my computer windows 10, the same message was being deleted on my i-phone 13 and i-pad at the same time. After the last version update, it doesn't delete any more. Now I have to delete the same message three times. Thank you, Ara Kanca

For a brief period firefox was asking what I wanted to do with downloaded files. That has stopped happening. Again when opening PDF files they are automatically saved and the option to just view them has stopped. All settings are marked as described in the support section. I have always ask what to do with PDF files. When clicking on the PDF file a box opens and I have open PDF file checked. It is stilled saved in a folder. Any other suggestions?

Ever since the big upgrade a few weeks ago (the one that introduced the Spaces Toolbar), email addresses that SHOULDN'T be giving me a notification of new mail, are. It's very annoying to then go to the program and discover it's an unimportant email I've been alerted to.

More detailed explanation: I use the global inbox to receive email from 7 different email addresses. I've set up a complex set of filters to colour code the emails and some of them are set to be marked-as-read as soon as they arrive. They're the kind of emails I want to read the next time I look at the program but don't want to be alerted to them. But since the recent upgrade to Thunderbird a few weeks ago, I now get alerted that new email has arrived in my system tray (icon with red dot) and 'Local Folders' (the words) are bold and blue, even when these 'marked-as-read' emails arrive. Is there anyway to stop being notified that emails that are meant to arrive silently do not trigger notifications? It worked perfectly before the recent big upgrade.

I'm currently on Thunderbird 102.3.1 (Windows 10). I haven't changed anything about my email.

Many thanks, Averill

I have a problem accessing articles in the New York Times web page. I have a Basic subscription and I am signed in. When I try to read an article, the New York Times site thinks I do not have a subscription and that I have used up all my free articles. If I use the Chrome browser, it works fine, but I do not want to use Chrome. I use FireFox for all my browsing. I have deleted cache and cookies. Tried the "Private Windows" too. I have logged out and back in. I have rebooted the machine (an Alienware 17 R5) and closed and opened Firefox. The "agents" I chatted with say this is a browser problem as everything is working fine on their side and it works in Chrome. Can anyone help me out?

I am running Windows 11 Pro , 64 bit, and just updated to version 21H2. When I did so, my Thunderbird (102.3.1) immediately started opening with a black background and white letters, which is the opposite of what it has in the past. I want to go back... can't seem to find a way to do it. The closest I could come is getting the preview pane and the message itself to open correctly, but the window listing emails is unchanged. Help, please!

This has been a problem for months and its very annoying. I have my firefox shortcut pinned to my taskbar. It's a shortcut directly created from the firefox.exe file in my programs folder. EVery so often after I'll restart my computer my firefox icon will go blank and it you click on it it says "Can't open this item. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted". The thing is I also have a firefox shortcut on my desktop. I use that shortcut to pin firefox to my desktop. That shortcut is always fine and this problem doesn't happen to it. Does anyone know what's going on?

I'm on Windows 10 64 bit.
