The Password Manager does appear when I enter a new password, and it asks me to Save Password, which I do. Then the next time I try to use that site, no saved password appears. My Firefox is 66.0.3 (64 bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu.

    Thanks for any help,

Between two Win10 Home PCs, both used to have all my Saved Logons, but somehow one PC has dropped them all. Both PCs do use Firefox Sync between successfully, but while that synchronizes Bookmarks (& whatever else), evidently NOT "Saved Logons". So, isn't there some way to EXPORT all of them to a file, to then IMPORT them to my other PC? Incidentally, within Saved Logons, there is a button named IMPORT, but it's used is only for importing from 3 other designated browsers, and apparently on the self-same PC. Searching Firefox Support was a waste of time ... their 'results' are just wide nets of hundreds of irrelevant things, no matter how precise I attempt each search. Bad support job on self-help, Mozilla.

I've been through my settings and Firefox does allow me to save login info for other websites. It just refuses to allow me to save my login for Zoom.us. I thought this might be a website issue but no because I am able to save my Zoom.us login info using other browsers.

So how do I get Firefox to function correctly?

Thanks.

Hello to all, first of all I wanna say that I've been using Firefox for the longest time and it hasn't given me problems until now. My browsers have been acting funny lately with some websites not connecting at all because of some TLS handshake would time out. At first it was YouTube, then Twitter, and now Wikipedia. Its been happening on both my Desktop and Android. Recently YouTube and Twitter have reconnected but I still can't connect to Wikipedia and some other sites I use for research, I've read the support's page for resetting the cache and cookies, amongst other things, and nothing has worked. I need help :(

TL;DR: TLS handshake times out for different websites, happening both on my desktop and android

Update: YouTube has gone back to giving me the TLS handshake thing again as of today :[ it was working fine for two days

I've always love the fact that I could move all the tool bars and addy bar to the bottom of the window. First this it was a menu item, no it's broken. Then an addon, now it's broken. Then it was the .css file, now it's broken with 66. How do I go about moving everything back to the bottom of the window? Why can't Mozilla relize that a lot of their users love the customizing of where the tools and how the layout is done and stop breaking it??? Why can't we have the old drag and drop customizing back?

Previously Firefox allowed for Autoplay to be disabled Globally, that is to say one setting in about:config disabled the functionality on all websites - no issues!

Now I have to apply the setting on a local basis, that is to say that I must first visit the website and be infuriated by an autoplay monstrosity before I am able to disable its functionality - whilst also wasting data as I am using a metered connection to access the web via desktop and laptop (rural location).

As someone who has previously donated to the cause, and has both the T-Shirt and Certificate to prove it, I am most disappointed by this change which seems to favour the individual websites more than the end consumer - without whom Firefox would not be what it is today!

Needless to say, I am most disappointed by this sudden and somewhat confusing change. I hope this shall be remedied in an upcoming release.

Yours sincerely,

Elliot J Knightall.
