Hi Sirhandsome, were you using Firefox's built-in Password Manager, or were you using an add-on such as LastPass?
Info on the built-in feature: Password Manager - Remember, delete and edit logins and passwords in Firefox
@jscher2000, This the first I've even heard of "LastPass" so, I was probably on Firefox's built-in especially, as I am less technologically savvy than most folks (remember, I'm still using a home (desktop) computer. I see the link you provided and will try it & report back. Thanks
Ae you talking about the Password Manager losing your data, or being logged out of websites?
