Hey, All of the saved logins and passwords are gone while the bookmarks remain.

I noticed that logins and passwords disappeared after the computer turned off unexpectedly due to low battery and unstable power connection couple times in a few minute interval.

How do I get back logins and passwords?

Is there any official or unofficial article/website explaining all the about:config settings? Currently i am trying to pre-edit all my custom firefox settings with the autoconfig.cfg I noticed that dns over https can be pre-edited with the cfg, so im pretty sure the setting: enable https only mode for all windows, which by default is disabled for whatever questionable reason, can be pre-activated via cfg.

How could i do that?

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

I would like to create Certificate backup since I am planning to install new operating system.

Setting - Certificates - view certificates - selected the certificate which I wanted to backup - click Backup - type File name - Save - typed certificate backup password 2x - click OK

The following message appears: Failed to create the PKCS #12 backup file for unknown reasons.

I tried several times + I tried also Backup all option - but same issue appears.

Approx. 5 months ago I did certificate backup for my wife and it worked without any issues, now I have no clue what is the reason for not working.

Any idea/suggestion?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Long story short: Whenever I open Firefox, apparently a Russian search engine named 'Poshukach' hijacks my homepage and doesn't let me use google(Image attached). Now to solve this I scoured the Internet. I refreshed Firefox, ran malware scans and even re-installed windows. Still it doesn't go away. I installed Firefox in another device with the same account but to no avail. They while roaming through Firefox settings I noticed in the top that it says 'Your browser settings is managed by your organization' or something like that. So, I figured bad guys took control of my browser's settings disguising as my so called "organization" So, I need help from Firefox's end to solve this. Remove this Organization management stuff from my account. I want my control back. Otherwise, I am afraid I gotta stop using Firefox altogether due to privacy reasons

I am absolutely devastated to find that my saved logins and passwords have all vanished from my account. I just uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox because the sync on my open tabs didn't seem to be working. But now ALL of my passwords are gone and I don't have them anywhere else because I thought I could rely on Firefox.

I'm logged in to my Firefox account but they are all gone.

How can I get them back? Please keep it simple if possible, I have no background in IT.

Thanks so much - feeling a bit desperate here and hoping there's some way to recover them all.

I can't connect to any websites after clicking on a Manual LIbrary webpage that kept me hostage and would open instead of the website I was trying to get to. I thought it was a scam after doing some research on another browser. This Manual Library gave me two options. To decline tracking on everything or to accept. I clicked the two buttons to decline and now I can't access anything. I don't want to delete my history nor my cookies because I have saved a bunch of things but I think my history is now gone. Searching what to do tells me the only way to correct this being able to use Firefox is to not have my history saved but deleted all of the time and get rid of all cookies. I don't want to do this. What to do now?? I have had to download other browsers in order to use the internet.

Okay so I am trying to use facebook messenger's "audio clip" function, but it says it does not have permissions to do so. I verified that my microphone(on my computers end) is enabled and able to be accessed, but when I go to firefox settings there is no option to allow or block facebook from having access. The Tab is just empty entirely with no option to "add a website" or remove one. I attached a screenshot of the error Im getting and the settings page. I reviewed the page "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions" and it shows that the website should be listed and I should be able to choose "allow or block" but the website is clearly not listed. Additionally that page references a button that does not seem to exist in my browser which was referenced as "the permissions icon". That icon is not anywhere on my browser or in the settings.

I attached 3 images that hopefully breakdown what I am trying to describe as its difficult to explain without directly referencing the images.

I'm using Firefox v94.0.2 in private browsing mode (hereafter PB) and can't figure out how to save the "infinate scroll" option in duckduckgo (herafter DDG) while using Firefox private browsing. I know that PB wipes out all cookies when I shut Firefox down. So I tried building a cookie for DDG's options while NOT in PB mode. That works fine both in that session and in subsequent sessions, as long as I don't go back to PB. But when I do go back to PB, the DDG settings revert to some default set, and DDG's "infinate scroll" setting is not set to ON any more. Is there a way I can have PB keep the DDG "infinite scroll" setting? Thanks

Where is this information stored? I looked in "Memory" devtab, it is not there so I presume this is not stored by the website in my PC. Also, I don't see this data in in History.

Where is it?

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

After too many hours of setting up and keeping current you instantly wipe it out, obviously you don't care and we will not put up with your Suckerberg attitude.

So i own an Android Phone and i use DuckDuckGo search engine on PC. I just got this adversting from duck asking me to install their extension on android. So why is this important, well obviously they directly tell me they know i own an android phone. Otherwise they would have sayd it this way; extension for mobile phones now available, or duckduckgo now available for iphones. The only other possibility would be if this is a new feature that is in general displayed to everyone, but i dont beleve this is the case because an iphone owner wouldnt care about an android extension. This is wired, is it not?
