I use the password manager in Firefox. Makes it easier to log in to different sites. I have found a situation that has been overlooked. Multiple sites use a persons e-mail address for identity. Different sites then would all use the one e-mail address for identity. Each site however would have a different password. So we have one "name" but multiple passwords connected to that name. Firefox doesnt realize that the one name has multiple passwords so everytime you login to a site that uses your email address as your identity, it asks if you may want to update your password. You have to refuse everytime because the different sites have a different password. If you update the password, each site will now have the password of the last updated password. Its a issue that needs to be fixed so Firefox recognizes how a Email address=Name can have multiple passwords because different sites are using the same name. It looks like Firefox isnt making the connection that different sites are being visited by the same person so some information will be consistent among different sites visited. Thus not realizing that its correct that the "same" name has a password that is different for this new site.

Is there a workaround? thx.

Hello Mozilla Help Staff,

I have a question I hope you can help me with. While my laptop boots up I see a beautiful image on the screen of a forest with a path and lavender flowers on each side. In the past I could right click on it and a messsage would come up "do you like this photograph? or something similar. I could click "yes" then log in.

Once logged in, I would bring up my Firefox browser and there would be additional information about the image. I could then save the photograph to my Images folder.

For some reason, the "Do you like the image?" question doesn't come up at all. So I can no longer save these beautiful photographs.

I think the reason this question came up is so Firefox could categorize types of images users like to see, and possibly want to use for backgrounds.

It would be wonderful to be able to change backgrounds and use bootup photos for a background but, unfortunately, now I have no choice.

I hope Firefox goes back to the earlier format that allows users to set their computer background image.

Please send my request to your technical staff.

Thank you, Gloria Hovde ghovde@lake.org

Firefox asks for my Primary Password on every page of Firefox I open whether I want to use a password or not. I have to click to remove the box and I lose control of the page because the page will move opposite of the direction my cursor moves. Can I open the "Primary Password" box whenever I want to use it instead having to deal with it every time I open a Firefox webpage?

This can be very frustrating.

Example: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/228747/flammen-danish-resistance-fighter and all other filepages from that site (should be normal HTML, this is not a link to an actual downloadable file). Worked until 90 or 91, works in all other browsers and even in FF on iOS/iPadOS, now I only get an endless "loading …" icon. No idea what to do. Tried to disable Ghostery, but that did not help.

regards,

The Firefox app on laptops and handsets runs very well. well synced too.

the problems I experienced were: when my laptop was damaged and had to enter the service center, I didn't have time to reset the browser. there are many passwords there. logging out of the device in the account settings menu from my android handset likely only stops the browser on the laptop from syncing with the handset, but does not delete the passwords already stored on the laptop Firefox app. (i've tried it on my desktop PC).

thanks in advance for the help.

As soon as the latest version arrived (which of course it did without my permission, as usual,) I will click on something which always used to open a new tab but now opens a new window. I have tried to screenshot my settings page which clearly is checked in the box that says open new tab, NOT new window, but my mouse does not show up a screenshot choice like it usually does. I am a computer novice with a brain disability so any explanation from you will have to be ridiculously simple. thanks so much

Yesterday I cleared my Firefox History including cookies and cache. Immediately could no longer Login to my live.com Hotmail account. Attempted multiple reset of live.com Hotmail PW and locked out. Of note: Firefox crashed when I cleared Firefox history so I had to force quit in Mac OS. More than coincidence I have this issue I believe. Help, thoughts? Thank you !

How can I erase an old account that has been saved on the browser? The electricity account was in my late husband's name. So when I try to put the account in my name (new account #), it won't let me. I called the company & they said that my browser has saved the account & it needs to be erased. They don't have it in their records anymore. Hope someone can help me on this. I don't have any idea on how to do this.

I've been browsing some coding sites to learn a bit and I've noticed that the text boxes they use to display the code or the way they format it, is not showing the numbers properly. Like how sometimes instead of 3 it'll just be A and zeros don't show. Commented code seems to fine.
