hmm, very puzzling this
The firefox on the desktop and on the remote vm is 79.0,1. The desktop runs
freebsd-12-stable r363045 and the remote vm runs -current r363183. The
12-stable firefox was built on poudriere-devel and the -current firefox was
installed via pkg from the current default catalogue.
The -current firefox has no addons installed at all and ff sync is not
From the -current machine I was able to telnet to an external mail host to
port 587 and I got the remote smtp banner.
The vm is hosted in another country, so I don't think it's my IP. fastmail.com
website works fine in iridium both local and remote. To load the site on the
remote vm, I ssh -Y -C remotevm and then firefox --no-remote --safe-mode
debugging. It's hard to debug without first knowing what is likely to say
"posting failed". a real chicken-and-egg thing.
I dunno which would be most useful, there are quite a few debugging options
but surely it is fastmail themselves who are saying "sending failed" ? In
which case firefox debugging would show nothing...
On top of that, all other fastmail.com website/webmail stuff works in either
firefox. It's just sending email that is broken.
maybe it's my account?! lol
