Regardless of the OS or Browser , trying to access the site https://www.googleadservices.com/ results with a failure described as "We can’t connect to the server at www.googleadservices.com."

Specifically this error message was just obtained on macOS Ventura 13.1 on my Intel based MacBook Pro using Firefox 109.0.1. It happens on all Windows machines I tried, on my iPad and iPhone.

I saw at least a million similar questions similar to this one, even more advices on how to address it - and no answer helps.

I have just logged in anew. Firefox has offered to create a new “profile”. I chose a profile name I am sure I have used before. Firefox claims a user (profile) by that name “already exists”. How may I “re-unite with my lost self”? I refuse to use Firefox again until a logical and reasonable login process is established. I shall delete what seems to be a “new account” and use other browsers.

Thanks for ability to ask for help.

I accidentally erased some of my email addresses and passwords. Previously I recall being able to access Password Manager to easily enter new email addresses and new passwords. That was some time ago.

I've attempted to follow instructions "within" Thunderbird but on getting into Password Manager where there are now only three of my 4 o5 emails addresses left, I could not find a way to replace the lost addresses and password. It was so easy to do so some years ago. Older users may recall old advice about using multiple addresses where the one attracting scams could be annihilated. I'll be 86 in a fortnight!

Humble thanks in anticipation - I'm still using Windows 7 and think it's the latest or near latest Thunderbird

This morning a technician from Dell used remote desktop control to resolve a problem with my PC (an Inspiron AIO FT7710, running on Windows 11). After that, I found that all my saved passwords to log into various on-line accounts (banking, Pandora, etc.) had disappeared. Is there any way to recover them? Thank you

Hi All,

Real quick one. I send a link everyday to people in my office to an Excel file stored on our S Drive.

I sent it to myself and clicking the link does nothing. It does work in Outlook

I've tried setting all 4 settings under network.protocol-handler.external- to true but hasn't worked.

Is this because it isn't a html file? I also tried via URN link rather than drive letter.

Thanks for the help.

Hello,

My bank's website has a 2 page verification process for logging on. The first page is for the User ID and the second page is for the password.

Until just a few days ago, I could enter the first letter of my User ID into my bank's website login field, and FF would auto-fill the rest. Now when I enter that first letter, nothing happens. I then have to look up this info before I can continue. Luckily, the second page (for the password) is working just fine.

If I remember correctly, there has been a recent FF update. This new update may be the source of this issue.

Please help!

Thanks, Andre'a

I had been using my outlook account in Thunderbird for years, but have not for the past 2 years or so. I have multiple email accounts set up in Thunderbird now. All but one -- the outlook.com account -- work. For some reason, despite having the correct username and password, Thunderbird continues to FAIL. I've researched online and tried other server settings, and have confirmed my outlook accounts server settings on outlook.com, and have ensured the settings are identical to what is entered in Thunderbird, but nothing works in Thunderbird. Windows MAIL also works fine. Thunderbird Error is attached. As FYI, I also tried disabling 2 factor authentication in Microsoft, in case that is the issue, but that didn't work either. I also tried deleting and re-adding my outlook account in Thunderbird in case there was some new configuration on Outlook side that was not being captured in Thunderbird. That didn't work either. So now I'm at a loss! I'd appreciate ANY assistance anyone familiar with this issue can give me! In case needed, I do not subscribe to Office365. I'm only using Outlook.com, etc. Please help! Thanks in advance!

I saved my login information for several accounts in the Firefox (desktop) built-in password manager. Then I got Firefox on my phone, found out passwords aren't protected as well on the mobile version, so I turned off sync then removed them from my phone. Later I turned sync back on thinking that it would just sync my tabs and, if it did do anything with passwords, it would copy my logins from my computer to my phone instead of removing them from my computer. That was yesterday, today I needed one of those passwords (randomly generated so I don't remember it) so I went to my saved logins on desktop and they were all gone. Is there any way to recover them?

Dear,

I need to recover my Mozilla (Firefox) account on my computer after this latter crashed. Unfortunately, apparently I don't have the good password. Probably I used an automatically generated password which I don't remember.

I still have my account connected on my Android smartphone, but I can't access the account details (no way to recover my password or change through this device?!), and I can't export my bookmarks. Also, apparently all my identifiers and passwords were not synced on my smartphone :-( Hence somewhere all my precious information are available, but stupidly enough I can't access it anymore and resetting the password warns me that I might (is it even a certainty or a possibility?) lose everything. It seems that I cannot even produce a revovery key (to reset pwd without losing data as mentioned in the Help pages) as I can't connect on a desktop browser anymore (but well on my Android version). I am lost and just stupidly blocked - this is SO frustrating, I initially thought it would be a good idea to put everything in Mozilla - well...

Is there ANY way to actually recover my account without losing data on my desktop Firefox, given I still have access to the email account associated to the Mozilla account (and to the original emails from the creation of my accounts) and I still have access to my Firefox account on the Android app but this one doesn't seem to allow to do anything interesting in my case??

Thanks a lot!

Hi, I am trying to create a new account on a website with standard email, password, and retype password fields. I have checked the Suggest and generate strong passwords box, yet Firefox (v109.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) is not suggesting a password. I have tried left clicking and right clicking on both password and retype password fields to no avail. Help?
