While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.

Where do I locate the list of saved passwords in Firefox? The current password manager (Firelock) only allows me to remove passwords one at a time.

I have over 1000 passwords on my machine 90% of them are not mine.

So please tell me where the file for saved password is om my machine so I can either delete the list completely, and start it again, or so that I can edit it with a text Editor.

This is not a Chrome machine.

Better fix for question mark boxes in Firefox ?

This fixed my problem with question mark boxes (which I have seen, then not seen, then seen again over versions of FF on a Mac): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178462

But the answer is 3 years old and nearly 30 FF versions ago, and furthermore requires lowering security. Is there a newer, better solution for fixing the problem with seeing question mark boxes instead of glyphs for certain fonts? (And one that doesn't require me to constantly toggle "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" in Preferences, which only works sometimes anyway.)

I tried to login to a site where I had forgotten a password. I got a firefox message offering help. I didn't know about the logins and passwords page. It popped up with hundreds of usernames and passwords from my wife. She doesn't use this computer. She doesn't use firefox. She did use it a few years ago. I just spent over an hour deleting her stuff. She was shocked that I had access to her paypal login and password etc.

Anybody help how I got this data? How are you supposed to protect yourself?

Why is it difficult to find the logout?

When login credentials for a site are stored, firefox shows the associated usernames as drop-down in the edit field of a site login.

Since this shows *all* accounts that it knows for that site, I'd like to turn that off. I'd like to keep the auto-fill of passwords, once I've manually entered the username (as it was in the past).

I've only found how to deactivate the whole auto-fill for both: username and passwords.

Any way to get the old (=more discrete) behavior back?


Thanks!

I generally clear my history when I leave Firefox. Several times, my history, even more extensive than the present I eliminated, plus recent has been restored when I sign in the next time. How could this happen when I have manually gone in and cleared all my history? I had the computer on the 2nd most private setting, ith all the boxes checked and the warning that all the history would be removed. I checked the delete or remove box confirming that I wanted the history removed. What on earth would make it return when I am offline and computer is sleeping?

Updated firefox... Never do it again :(

It seems that it is not possible for me to save login data without password as always...

Example:

@gmx i have 3 email accounts that i use... and i used to just select the one i want to log in with and then enter the password.

Now there are no data... i have to type the whole email adress AND the password.

i have website logins that i rarely use... and in this case i do not know what the login was... now i do a passwort reset with my email adress every time ?

how to set this up that this is working like before ?

Google wont help me.. just saying use lockwise and save email and password... But i definitley dont want to save a password.. not a single one... i dont want to use masterpassword or what ever...

I feel like iam to stupid to get this to run.. or iam forced to save my passwords...

i just want to select my login as it was before ... and type my password after this... why is this so complicated ?
