I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

Hi, I had to use the refresh Firefox feature because Firefox was very slow again. I did this more before without any problem. But now my login forms are not automatically filled in by Roboform. Firefox will load the right (login) page but nothing more. The settings in Roboform are unchanged.

Any idea? Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Best Regards, Robert.

Hi,

I'm on a Lenovo Yoga convertible and everytime I switch to tablet mode and tap in a text field in FF the virtual keyboard opens for a very short time, FF flickers once and the keyboard closes again. I know that this problem has appeared in the past and apparently been solved for other people, but none of the workarounds I came across work for me... The problem also occurs when I boot in tablet mode and all drivers are up to date. All other applications work flawlessly and a FF reinstall sadly hasn't fixed my problem.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad

Kind regards Jonas

Firefox takes over 30 seconds to load a tab that I've already opened and seen before.

I mean tabs that have already displayed some content, I switch to a tab, then go back to the tab I was previously on, and it takes over 30 seconds to load, sometimes over 3 minutes. This is making firefox unusable.

And because it doesn't happen all the time, it's not very reproducible for me, but it happens often. Is there a way to fix this?

Hello Community ~

I have many, many open browser windows with multiple tabs. Is there a way to save the windows that I am not immediately using. The competitor browser offers such a feature where one can just click the browser window off to the side, and when reclicked the window with all the tabs pops open for use. Everything is saved but it does not open automatically (which I don't need it to) on startup. I hope that was concise?

Thank You and Kindest Regards ~

Last night I noticed my Windows 10 64 bit machine did an auto update. Not sure this has anything to do with today's problem; maybe coincidence.

Today I started the reference software "Zotero" and the program cannot find the database of my papers. This is of course crucial for writing grants, references for my class that I teach etc. I have never seen this error before.

In Zotero help, this is listed as a Firefox problem, with a reload and other steps as a solution. I am leery of messing with my database as it has years of publications in it.

Any chance you could advise me on this or get FF to fix this? It will likely happen with future updates. My Firefox browser version is 81.0.2 and is up to date.

P.S. If you hit the "locate" option Zotero closes. It will not allow you to search for the database (see image attached)

Thanks.

I am a DirecTV customer and should be able to watch programs on my Win10 device, but Firefox disagrees. On the DirecTV site, when I click Watch Now, it wants to install the DTV player. When Firefox is redirected to the download page, it throws a certificate error and screeches to a halt. I would expect an opportunity to assume the risk and continue, but none is offered. I opened MS Edge, which I don't want to use, and it installed the viewer, no problem. This is the URL from which FF is redirected : https://www.directv.com/Channels/Fox-Business-Network-HD-359?modal=/modal/install/359/channe. This is the URL of the error : https://metrics.directv.com/b/ss/dtvdirectvcomprod/4/REDIR?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdirectv.vo.llnwd.net%2Fe5%2Fcinema%2Fplugin%2FVideoGuard.13.0.exe&pe=lnk_d&pev1=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.directv.com%2FChannels%2FFox-Business-Network-HD-359%3Fmoda%3D%2Fmodal%2Finstall%2F359%2Fchannel&pev2=DIRECTV_Player_13..

I tried going to the firefox profile section, there was 2 profiles, none had my back up

hey guys,

Can you guys list for me, where each one of the following types of data is in the cache location in win 10? the locations for me are as follows:

LOCAL DIR => C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\pbnbougs.default-1580885455126 ROAMING DIR => C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\pbnbougs.default-1580885455126

so....my question for you experts is....in which dirs are the following pieces of info?

=> passwords => cookies => history => temp files that are junk (for instance, image files for quicker future page loads, etc...)

attached are images of the 2 dirs I mentioned above. I'd like to know where these things are, whether they be in un-extensioned files, sqlLite DBs or anything else. thanks!

Avast (pro) blocks then reports: https://rclick.site/3LtGKV ... reporting it as a phlishing site/bot whatever - FF vs. 81.0.2 (64 bit).

Dear Girls and Guys,

As detailed above, Firefox starts then the first thing seen is a Avast warning screen saying it has "blocked an rclick site due to phlishing risk."
OK - not a drama - find the URL or add-on causing or calling that site, then bin (secure shred) it; followed by reporting it to folks like you, Avast, IObit, etc. {ie. normal practice}.

Issues. 1. I cannot find the site referenced in bookmarks. 1.1. Looked/searched manually running FF; 1.2. Saved all BM's to a HTML file (secured directory); then ran string searches (full and partial). ... Could not find it. 2. Tried to find reference to it at Avast (= failed, response bot is not designed for technical stuff - above finger painting or 'mud-pies' or 'how to change nappy'). 3. I have been working through my Firefox add-on apps - mainly because I think (fits logically) one of those is doing the site call (internal function) to this 'r-click' site ... thus far without luck. 3.1 I'm not young (though dementure might help that) - thus also have Seamonkey and Waterfox, etc., installed to look at/watch (progress, developments, teams talking, etc). As a rule all those have the same groupings of Apps/ext's - because I look at and rate those also. (have done, since the early Mozilla days).

The https:rclick.site/3LtGKV (phlishing) message/reaction does not come-up in Seamonkey, Waterfox or Tor browsers (using many of the same plug-in apps/ext's).

3.2 I was going to enter it in my firewall black list (added preventative), but would prefer to enter the actual calling application or URL; then report the same elsewhere.

Concluding and question.

In theory - I think it is an extention or application 'calling home' - possibly innocently - in which case I would like to remove it, then report it (as either problematic or malicious - in the extentions & apps reporting system).
Thing is I cannot find it/what is causing it.
It cannot damage me/my systems; however it can - if malicious - damage innocent/unsuspecting others.
Thank you and much sincere grovelling ... for clever tips and thoughts you may wish to bestow,
Be safe, keep well and keep smiling,
Rick.
