I've used Firefox since 2013. Love It. Went from full iOS and Mac to iOS and Droid, and full Droid with iOS and macOS. Firefox smoked Chrome and every other competitor, plus it's constantly updated and bespoke features (I've a Chelsea FC Toolbar background! How kick arse is that?)
I can access and use Firefox via my mobile app w\out issue. A bookmarks, open pages, saved settings, Add Ons, Read Later, Downloads, etc. are accessible and I can share with my devices or other users.
A few months ago, whist syncing my mobile (Samsung Galaxy Note), tablet (Galaxy S4) and iPhones, I decided to update my passcode. Because I work on Campaigns, I needed something Extremely Difficult, or Full Green, to ensure safety and work compliance. I had the perfect idea. It worked and my initial iPhone was now connected, as my tablet and Note were already Synced. Then, Shitestorm hit. As I went to confirm the password and save it, the device/WiFi/Site/I Don't Know: Refreshed! It saved only parts of the password and I tried to take screengrabs, but none were correct.
Now, besides my Note, I cannot access Firefox on ANY device, Mobile nor Desktop. I've a lot of information and spent HOURS over the years perfecting my set-up! I don't have time anymore, literally. We pull 14 Hrs, 7 Days 280 Straight, and time is used as currency! I'm serious. I "spent" 30 mins to try and solve this issue & write this message.
I know if I reset my password everything is gone. But, the face I've 100% unfettered Access to my Homepage and Account, must account for something, right? I hate Google, like I really despise the company and how they treat people, but I need a Browser/Provider that works, offers x-features, personalised and secure, plus works across all devices. I've used Chrome since and it makes me want to spend 30 mins on my heavy bag. Literally.
Is there ANYTHING we can do? I'll send the screenshots, I'll give you my info, I'll send copies of my ID if necessary! Please, tell me there's a chance I won't need to Blank my Account and start over.

if i leave firefox inactive for a while.. ie... open waterfox while firefox is also open ... then go back to firefox... ie to check my bank account ... when i click on the link from desktop... a blank tab opens .. how ever nothing happens.. and also none of the other tabs will open either... the little ball just spins an spins... i can start firefox in safe mode.. do nothing .. close it down.. open it back up and all is fine.. but i do have to go through that procedure for it to start working again.. its very puzzling to say the least.. and i cant remember if it had this problem before the last update or not... another note.. the same thing happens if i open another browser.. ie opera or chrome.. i have not tried closing firefox before opening the other browsers.. not sure how that would make any difference though.. because in the past i have had several different browsers open at the same time and not experienced this problem... closing firefox and reopening it doesnt fix the problem.. i have to go through the safe mode process for it to begin to work again..
thanks in advance for any help that you can give on this subject.. Mel
