How can I stay login from same account but different ip address in firefox

Posted

I am using one account on two different ip address, one is in office, and same account is in home, so I can get all my tabs history and bookmarks, but issue is, I had to login on daily basis, which is not user friendly, for the experiment i tried google chrome, It asked only one time login information, and it didn't ask again, this same thing I am expecting with Firefox, is there any step that I am missing, or any trick for this thing.

Your Windows User Logon doesn't keep your user account safe? Or you don't trust your IT/Network Administrator?

You can use Firefox's Master Password: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-master-password-protect-stored-logins

It will ask for the master password when a website password is needed, not at startup.

Are these the same website or different sites?

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.

Extensions (therefore Mater Password + or similar) are easily circumvented if anyone can log into the Windows user account you use. All they have to do is open Firefox in Safe Mode or just copy your user profile if you don't have a master password. Which is one reason why these don't exist anymore.

If you don't have your own Windows user account secured with a password, the best i can suggest is to either copy your Firefox profile (or maybe just logins.json, if that works) to a USB flash drive or SD card every day, and delete it from your computer. Or, you can get a portable version of Firefox, transfer your profile to that, and run it from a USB flash drive (or copy it to and from your desktop every day). If you run from USB, you can use also the PortableApps platform for the launcher and other features if you like. https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

logins.json and key3.db [v58+]key4.db : These are the password files. Copy Both !


The portable version of Firefox is a good idea.

FredMcD has a good point. If you delete the whole profile or port just logins anywhere else, you will need key4.db (and key3.db for logins which have persisted since before v 58).
