password security is not there in this browser at all ,non technical one can also get vulnerable details of the user easily,when someone has set save password . supposed the gmail accc password is saved and then the user sign out of it, and try to log in again then passwprd is visible again, there should have been password attribute and password should not be visible unless the user enter system password or fingerprint auth, it is very serious issue i think

I often use the hungarian OTP bank online bank service nly on my personal macbook. Nobody else uses my comp. Last time when I tried to log in, the username and the account number (these are login data) were not mine! These werent a fake numbers, these were someone else's login details. The password field is always empty and at first glance I did not realize this fake numbers, I just typed my password and the login was unsuccesfull. When I checked the account number I realized these were unknown numbers, not mine. How does it happen?

Just finished turning off Firefox's auto updates on all of my computers. Because I had to learn to get in the habit of copying my Firefox profile about once a month. Why? Because I keep losing my settings! Mainly my passwords. This is now the 3rd update in a row that has dropped my passwords. 2nd time on that computer. (Windows 8.1) .

Please figure out why this occurs. (I can't be the only one). If it was always the same computer, I would point at it. But, the other 2 are Windows 7.

OR................ maybe...........instead of the profile being updated and possibly losing files, or over writing them. At the start of the update, say it makes a backup? Just in case v. 36,37,38,39,40,41,42.................cause the same issue. At least then if the passwords are the only issue, grab the 2 files and drop them back in the profile. done.


I hate sounding like a douche, just really freakin annoyed.

I had been using numerous sites where I my username and password was appropriately retained using Firefox 36.0.4. With the update to 37.0.4, all this failed. My stored usernames and passwords failed. Deleting these credentials would not work - I would enter them, the dialogue about whether to store these would flash in the upper left of the browser window, and I would be asked for my credentials again. Happened on multiple sites on different servers. Deleting profile and reinstalling V37.0.4 did not fix. The only solution was to scrub out V37.0.4 and reinstall the prior V36.0.4. How to communicate this to the Firefox developers.

This started happening after I had a web browser hijacker that hijacked Windows Edge. My software company did a remote session and fixed that. But, if using Firefox, at every single site I go to, even yahoo email, it keeps asking me if I want to update my logon information. I have never seen it do that before, it is like it wants me to do that so it can see my new password????? I have no reason to update my logon info, and would do that myself as I feel necessary. I completely removed Firefox, went to Mozilla main site, and downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox, and it is still asking everywhere I go. Do I have another bug in my system that is only affecting Firefox? Edge runs fine now, as does IE but I never use IE anymore. Please help. Robert

After a refresh FF was not responding correctly so it was uninstalled and reinstalled. I have it back up but now cannot see my saved logins even though I can see the exclusions list just not the passwords. I am using ver. 49 and copied both the logins and key files from the backup into the new "default" profile. When I open the logins file in Scratchpad I can see the data but each entry has a "null" after the "httpRealm" entry:

'id': 1,

     'hostname': 'https://www.google.com',
     'httpRealm': null,
     'formSubmitURL': 'https://www.google.com',

Other than this the file "looks" normal.

Updated to the most recent version of firefox (running 49.0.1) after i got a notification saying there was a new version available. Today i went to a website that i had my password saved for, but it wasn't showing up when i tried to log in. Went to my saved passwords and all of my old logins + passwords are gone, only have what i've saved since the update . I went through a few of the 'lost saved password' questions and have tried to restore previous versions of logins.json (i also noticed a corrupt logins.json file in my profile), I also tried to make a new profile and copy over logins, i booted in safe mode etc but nothing is working. Is there anything I can do to get my passwords back?!

Hi

My files got corrupted on yesterday update . I have the same issue. but i could not find the old version of logins.json file.

There is a file logins.json.corrupt instead of logins.json

corrupt file is about 348KB.

this has never happened till now i never thought this could happen ... aren't passwords saved back on firefoxes secure servers ? i signed back to my profile everything is intact excepts my passwords .. this is a nightmare

i have searched all over Firefox didn't find a proper solution .. most of the answers are outdated (2015) .. the restoring previous versions isn't an option (ugh why didn't i backup regularly "smack on my face")

Is there any way to get login details from the corrupt file ? (tired reading using notepad and json readers its a bust)

Also used Scratchpad on firefox getting this error "illegal character"

please provide solutions thank you

I was using Firefox developer edition for quite some time and as a developer i thought that my thousand passwords were SAFE in firefox cloud and all i needed to do is just login to my account. So, after deleting firefox for a "fresh start", i couldn't login to my account and i didn't remembered the password. I got myself a new password and poof, just like that, everything fcking gone, all my thousand passwords, bookmarks, everything gone. How can you do something so retarded without any kind of warning!? Fcking junior programmers even check and put warnings in their fucking code, not the biggest fcking browser organization in the world!!! RETARDS. And yes, i have fcking tried all of your bullshit methods for recovery, none of them helped.

After a force reboot of the system, the list of all my passwords was cleaned up. Bookmarks are OK. I saw the logins.json.corrupted file in my profile folder. Any ideas how to return them or repair this logins.json.corrupt file?

Notice that: - This problem is repeated every few months for me and Mozilla have no solution for that!!! - I do not have any backup files(Mozilla profile, logins.json , key3.db and etc)... - There is no 'Previous version ' in file properties... - window restore doesn't solve problem...

thanks.

When firefox asked if I wanted to update to the newest version, I answered NO! I had already discovered on my other computer that if I allowed the update, I would lose my ability to restore the previous session, so I wanted to save the tabs so I could reload them. I also lost all of the saved passwords on my other computer and didn't want the same thing to happen on my work computer. But despite answering NO. Firefox updated anyway, and I have lost days of work. How do I get it back? Jack
