Firefox help says "When you enter a username and password that you haven't already saved for a website, Firefox will ask if you want to save it. "

But it doesn't always. I want it to remember username/password for a particular website, but Firefox doesn't ask. I have "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, and the website is not on my saved logons list. Is there a way to force Firefox to remember the username/password for a particular site, perhaps by manually editing the saved logons list (where is it?)? Thanks.

For the past few days, Firefox has been extremely slow to load pages at startup. The browser itself launches pretty much instantly, but it's taking over six minutes after that just to look up domains. At some point it gets past whatever hiccup is holding things up and browsing works for the rest of the session -- noticeably slower than usual, but usable.

It happens with add-ons disabled, after multiple refreshes, and even after a full reinstall (with new profile). I've played with all the common suspects -- disabling accessibility options, hardware acceleration, IPv6, etc. I closed my pinned tabs and disabled auto-restoring the previous session. I even disabled Avast and MalwareBytes. Nothing has helped so far (which is seriously disappointing, considering the 6-minute restart between each change!)

The odd thing is that there are a few seconds, immediately after startup, where things seem to work normally. If I'm quick, I can sometimes get most of one webpage to load before the problem begins.

I've been a Firefox power user since version 0.6.2 and never encountered anything like this. I'm very comfortable with changing settings, configuration files, etc., and am willing to try just about anything to get things cranking again. But right now I'm simply out of other ideas to try.

Using 61.0.2, 64-bit version on fully-patched Windows 10 on a very fast fiber connection. <edit> I also tried the 32-bit version; no joy. </edit>

Firefox is showing me a message: "Firefox is critically out of date" under the bookmarks tabs. If i choose "Update Now" button I'm being forwared to this site:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/?flowId=eee4159d-b25c-4c0f-a70c-eac7cfeb611a&fxVersion=61.0.2&isDefaultBrowser=1&searchEngine=ddg&source=heartbeat&surveyversion=56&syncSetup=1&type=button&updateChannel=release&utm_campaign=YourFirefoxiscriticallyoutofdate.Anupdateisrequiredtostaysecure.&utm_medium=show-heartbeat&utm_source=firefox

After I pressed "Download Now" it offers me an older version 52.9.0esr.exe (current 61.0.2 (64-bit)).

Under "Help -> About Mozilla Firefox" it is showing me my firefox is up to date. Why is Firefox telling me i have critical version? What could be wrong?

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help
