Someone else used my computer to log in to their gmail account a long time ago. Now, everytime I want to log in to my gmail account, their profile pops up. I can't log in to delete it, and it is annoying because I'm always asked to log in to their email first...rather than my own. I could easily delete the user when I log on using google chrome...

I accidentally saved password for a site in firefox. Now i need the previous password.

To change to new password, you require old password. I punched the old password that i had saved in my diary and put the new ones. The system asked to saved the new one. So, i clicked it. But unfortunately the old password was not correct and so the new password was not registered.

Now, the need the just previous password?????

Hi, I use Firefox 62.0 on Ubuntu and I would like to know how to backup my saved passwords without use Firefox Sync and without copy the entire profile folder. I'll explain: considering that for some generic problems the profile could be corrupted in the future, I would like to backup only my password without to be force to use Firefox Sync and uploading my passwords on cloud (with all the consequences on security and privacy) Is there any way to do this? Many thanks

I will soon be getting a new computer. Having a large number of websites and respective access passwords saved in Firefox Mozilla, it would be very convenient to be able to export this information to the new machine after installing Firefox, as one can do with Bookmarks. Is this possible for websites+passwords?

I cannot access my wordpress.org site to edit it through Firefox. Error message says I have wrong password: not true. But I went ahead and asked for link to reset password, did so several times, and still cannot enter into my Wordpress dashboard. This is definitely a Firefox issue, as I can access my WordPress account through Safari and Google Chrome. I want to continue to use Firefox, but cant if I cannot use it to access critical pages for my business.

This is a recent error message:

Quantum in its most recent versions has simply stopped prompting for new or changed passwords on Mac OS X, even though all the correct boxes are ticked or unticked. This is really annoying as my memory is failing and I count on the password manager to save and update all my passwords. The ones which were saved in past versions of Firefox are still there, but anything that is from a new website or has been changed isn't. I can mostly change the updated ones manually, but can't put in new websites and their passwords myself. What am I doing wrong?

Password manager is not auto-filling. The Avast Passwords icon is orange and not locked but when I click on it it says it is not enabled. If I then go to add-ons the only option is to disable it. Doing this and then re-enabling does not help, nor does re-booting. I have had password manager for quite a while and this is the first time I have seen this. I am not aware of any recent updates and I have not changed any settings. oowever, my wife was last to use this computer so who knows...

I have all passwords and log in info saved to firefox so it wil auto fill in usernames and passwords.

PROBLEM: On several sites ,even though it has all the info saved,and shows it in "saved logins",it refuses to enter anything in the username space making it immpossible to log into sites without doing it manually. Once I enter the username it fills in the passwords but this is just not acceptable and makes the browser useless to me as it makes everything a huge hasle just to log into a site.

Is there anyway to fix this besides going back to chrome???

So after a recent update on my firefox Dev Edition (42.0a2) it wiped my browser without my knowledge and transferred 'old' information to an "Old Firefox" folder on my desktop. I've gotten some of it back but my saved passwords won't transfer. I copy the files from the old folder into my directory but it doesn't show up in browser, nor do any of the passwords autocomplete.

I know it is saved because when I click on the Outlook link it opens up Hotmail, and I can access my emails. How do I recover my password without going to Hotmail and resetting? THANK YOU!

Hello

I am currently using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 64-bit. On some websites, I am unable to select the password field either using tab or a mouse click to be able to enter a password. This leaves me unable to login. However, this doesnt seem to happen on all password fields.

For example on https://reddit.com I can enter username and password on the field on the right. However, if I click on Login hyperlink on 'Want to join? Log in or sign up in seconds.', I get a popup which I am unable to click the password field on.

I have also seen this problem on https://abnzb.com

I have tried to run in safe-mode but the problem persists.

My addons are Gnome shell integration, Enhanced Steam, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock origin.

Also, to add to this. When I right click on the password text fields, I do not get a menu popup. I am not sure if this is related or not.
