Suddenly lost my Lockwise Passwords

Hello Everyone,

I have a Firefox account and I used to have all my passwords saved in Lockwise app (on my Huawei mobile) and in Lockwise section on my laptop (Linux) and all these passwords were synced across all my devices. I changed my mobile to IPhone and I didn't install Lockwise but I was still able to get to my logins via my laptop. And I was very cautious that I kept syncing every now and then.

The problem is that I formatted my laptop recently to windows 11, when I installed Firefox on my laptop again I was expecting to be able to retrieve all my passwords (around 200 entries) since everything was synced, but to my surprise everything was lost except for 16 entries.

Is there any way to backup my old list of passwords?

Please note that I still have my old phone (Huawei) with the old passwords list and the auto sync turned off. Is there any way to backup these passwords from Huawei to Iphone and to my Laptop?

I just synced two new devices (Android phone and tablet) using the scanned QR code because I got the error message that the password I was trying to use was incorrect. I don't understand what has happened, as I am "signed in" on desktop, laptop and those two devices with that password, as far as I know.

I was trying to set up the Recovery Key, but that also tells me that the current password is incorrect. I do not want to lose all of my saved passwords, history, etc., which is what it sounds like will happen if I try to reset my password.

Help!

I am looking for a way to simply delete 100's of cookies, but not all, with out using the very limited "Manage cookies and site data" window. It takes forever to delete 5 or 6 at a time. What is the replacement for when you could type "." and this window expanded to full page and the selection process was so simple?

Hi, I realise this sort of thing is not exactly the end of the world but I'll ask anyway. In Proton, the background of the Settings page, about:config page and the Library window have changed to black [with white text]. Before, everything was white background with black text...is there any way at all to go back to that, without changing the Theme that I've been using for years? The Firefox colour settings change the Settings and about:config pages background to white but then you have the glaring white high contrast etc on every web page...and it still has a black background in the Library window, regardless of what colour settings I have there. I can change all this easily with some other theme or that Firefox Color addon [which is how I got the second picture below] but if that's the only option I would rather just put up with it as it is.

First pic is how it is now, second is how it always was before Proton and I want it to be again.

Thanks

I tried optimising firefox's settings for the most possible privacy. When i visit firstpartysimulator.org and complete the test, the result claims i do have a decent protection against tracking while my "software" is not checking for "do not track policies". By software im not sure if this is ment to be the operatingsystem or the browser, firefox. The result also shows i do have a nearly unique fingerprint. If i remove one of my current extensions -> canvas blocker, i do have a unique fingerprint. This is not good as i see it.

How can i make firefox (or windows if so) check for do not track policies? I noticed the duckduckgo addon claims to always check for do not track policies but im not sure if i really need this extension. Also do not track only works if the host website supports it as far as i know. To get this to an end, the question is 1, how to make us of do not track policies, 2 how can i make my fingerprint less unique? I only changed a couple settings in about:config and use a total of 3 browser extensions, this shouldnt be to much unique, or?

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

I am finding a web site that I have used for many years is suddenly not working as the login will not work. I have contacted the compmany whose website i use and they have taken me through steps that point to an issue with firefox. (I can get acces to the site with MS Edge). If firefox thinks there si a security issue I cannor find how to make teh site an exception.

I also see that firefox thinks my browser preferences are being managed by my organisation. In fact I am my organisation and dont recall having set up a policy for my company

Can you help pls

Thanks

By inverting the caps/num lock I do mean that if they are active, then firefox get the input as if they weren't and viceversa

but if I do try to write into the numpad then the issue is not there, then if I do try to write again into firefox, the issues are not anymore present, the same happens when I do try to record the issue with obs, once that I do press record, then the issues will not be any more present

I did try a clean install, and the issues are still there, with and without addons, the issue seems to appear randomly, and always at the same time, I mean if the caps become reversed, then it will also prohibit me to gui delete a tab, to switch from one tab to another (but both do become highlighted by the gui), and opening each new tab into a new window

when I click on a PDF on a website, Firefox does what is specified under Settings/Applications for "Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)". I prefer to open the PDF in the Adobe Acrobat Reader, but apparently, the browser prefers to save PDF files. When I save my preferences "open with Adobe Acrobat Reader", it does that, but the next day, it tries to save the PDF again. This has been so for a long time. An overlooked bug or a feature?

I keep the bookmarks sidebar open.

Sometimes when I have been working in other programs and return to Firefox, the Bookmarks sidebar is empty except for the Bookmarks Toolbar, Bookmarks Menu, and Other Bookmarks headings.

When this happens, the sidebar is unresponsive.

Closing and re-opening (ctrl+b, ctrl+b) the sidebar restores everything to normal.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated.
