A financial institution's log-in page suddenly remembers my username, though not my password.

The institution's site is not listed among those in Firefox's password manager at all.

The institution claims it's not their site, and it must be the fault of the browser.

Any suggestions? I need to protect this information.

P.S. Chrome also remembers the log-in or username.

Hello, I've had this issue for a long time but now it actually bugged me enough to ask about it.

Let's say I have an app with one set of credentials at https://website1.xyz.com

I also have another web app at https://webmail.xyz.com

Firefox only offers to remember credentials for xyz.com so whenever i access any of those websites above i have to juggle between credentials.

Is it possible for firefox to remember passwords separate for whole FQDN?

As stated in subject line. FF 95.0.2

Nothing has changed except all fields are blank when I enter and the pw manager is also blank. My passwords and logins under TOOLS is still full.

What happened? I did NOT change any pw or history settings since yesterday - as a matter of fact, I did not change anything except to enter cookies exceptions.

Thank you.

This lockwise is a pox, whenever I sign up for a site I get the normal dialog to save the password, after saying yes, my password has not been saved, and it's due to lockwise, so how do I get rid of this excrement-filled apple infected change?

If not, I'll just quit using this crappy browser and simply move on...

One day Mozilla started stopping all outgoing emails to notify me of "Following recipients are in To field:" after I click the "send" button. The message is not sent without acknowledging this useless message and could be sitting in the background for hours. Is this a security check to make sure I'm sending the message to the right people? how do I turn this off?

[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1362528. Please follow up there, thanks.]

Using the Privacy and Security permissions, and in the "Settings Camera Permissions" it appears to me that I'm only allowed to remove permissions, not add them. The box contains the list of websites that have asked for permission to use my camera. The box is empty.

I tried putting the desired website in the the box, thinking I might add it, then tried alternatively both "enter" and "save", and nothing was added to the box below. The box remained empty.

Vanguard.com made a change to their logon process that now requires all logons must go through their 2 step authentication process, that sends a text msg with an authorization code to a smartphone, which in turn is entered into the authentication popup that appears after the main userid/password logon is accepted.

My issue is after I've gone through the initial logon by entering my userid and password, and hitting the "logon button", nothing happens. The authentication popup does not appear, and no text msg is received, so I can't get past the initial logon dialog.

I've user another browser to logon on to the Vanguard site, and I successfully complete the 2 step process and get logged on.

On Firefox, I've got the Vanguard logon url in the exception list of the pop-up blocker, and enhanced tracking protection. I also it excluded in the ad blocker extension installed on Firefox.

How can I determine what is breaking the 2 step logon authentication? I'm assuming that I some privacy setting in Firefox that likely doing it... maybe. What else can I check in my settings?

Security issue with form filler data -- LSS, I have some very unwanted saved data somewhere in some buffer area of the browser that I want to surgically remove.

I currently have firefox set to offer to save logins, and not to fill in addresses or credit cards. I have indicated, when offered, to "never save" logins from certain sites. I have gone to the saved logins area in firefox and verified that the login information is not saved there. However when I go to a site, the login information is in the browser somewhere and shows up under the form blank as I type the correct information in. Obviously this is a security issue. I once got rid of this data by deleting EVERYTHING but of course I lost a lot in the process. The first time I did that I hadn't fully configured the settings for form filler so I hoped for better the second time around. But no, alas and alack it is back. I am hoping someone out there knows how I can go in and surgically remove this data.

NOTE I have already tried every solution in the firefox help area and in the firefox forums and on all help sites on the first ten pages of google so PLEASE do not fill up the answer area telling me to try that stuff. It did not work. The only thing that worked was deleting EVERYTHING (Ctrl+shift+del clear everything for all time) I have spent hours on trying different things because 1) these logins should not be saved and 2) I don't want to delete everything again 3) I didn't want to have to write this essay here.

TLDR Alternately if you know how I can export and then import my cookies and site settings, I could delete EVERYTHING and then add those 2 back in. THANK YOU fellow campers!

Cannot access about:config on Firefox android. This seems to be an intentional action as there is an archived thread where other users had the same problem and Firefox did crikets and did not resolve the issue.

Without the ability to access about:config it is almost impossible to prevent browser hacks and spying through microphone and camera using the Firefox's always on webrtc due to this.

For anyone reading this search for "webrtc leaks" . Then read about the dangers of having webrtc on by default as Firefox does with impunity.

This needs to stop and it is a huge security hole.

Firefox developers needs to enable about:config so that users can switch off shouting vulnerabilities like this.

There has been threads before like this, but developers do nothing about this issue which is very very curious.

Should we believe they want to leave webrtc on permanently, knowing that it can be used maliciously as reported?
