Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

A video at a Web site where I have often accessed videos now tells me the video is inaccessible because of "privacy and security settings." I don't think I have changed the settings since the last time I watched a video. In any case I have not been able to find the problem. I have tried the options for cookie settings without fixing the problem. What should the settings be?

The news website https://www.news.com.au/, if you go to any story, if you scroll more than a certain way down, then an irritating divider opens up at the bottom, and slides up.

It's always titled "More In ...."

You can click for it to go down again, but if you open 10 webpages you end up doing this 10 times, which after a while is more than a little irritating.

We have popup blockers, blockers that stop videos from auto-starting, but I'm not even clear what this 'feature' is called, let alone how to disable it short of giving up on this website.

Any suggestions?

The search boxes in the inspector window window returns no results whenever I try to search for specific key-value pairs like: role="main".

I can only get results for main or role. Is there a search string parameter/syntax reference anywhere? I've searched high and low, but articles/references found in the documentation is VERY basic.

Thanks

Hi everybody, As website owner my convern comes after mozilla is blocking tracking by default meaning that google ads cannot be served by default, only if users will choose so. Most of the mozilla users don't even know what tracking means, so the chances of choosing to allow tracking and serve ads are very low. Many websites owners use adsense ads to pay for their servers/hosting, their hard work, etc. and as you know every visitors is comsuming resources and bandwidth, so my questions is: Why webmasters shouldn't block mozilla users since the chances to generate revenue thru ads is very low, to none? I get that it's a great feature to the user, but should be an option rather than a default setting? If webmasters choose to block mozilla users, there will be a lot of users who can't access a specific information and they don't even know the cause.

We have an application that was integrated with several other legacy applications in the organization. We started upgrading our application to HTML 5 standards to make it work with all modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Edge. Now the problem is that, our application has redirect links to 3 to 5 legacy applications that were coded for IE 7 and no where in the migration path. When the users click on these links while working on our application, Firefox opens a blank page, making them as blockers for our application uplift. 1) is there a way to force a link to open in IE while the parent page is launched using Firefox ? I have seen this link : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43615678/force-a-link-in-i-e-to-open-in-firefox , but this is for the opposite requirement...open Firefox from IE. 2) how do you run applications requiring .cab files on Firefox ? if there is an answer for this, we don't need to worry about #1.

Thanks.

I expect all my pinned and other tabs to open when I start. Unfortunately, I closed and there was another window open, so when I started next time they are all gone. This is infuriating. Please tell me there is a way to get them all back without having to build it all from scratch. I got here because after the update today, 10/26/18, there was a tab to restore and another tab "See what's new..." I did the restore and everything was right, but I closed it and there was another window open, so when I closed it, it was was what came back. Do I have to save that setup? If so, how. I'm furious that "they" did this to me.
