I am experiencing a problem with lockwise since months. In just few words I cannot see which password are stored and therefore I cannot even edit them (see the pict). The funny part is that the login/passwords data are there because I can use them after landing on any page where I have an account. That's to say that the only way I have to edit a password that I changed on a different browser is to visit the page and then change it. Another few examples? 1) If I enter in the search box any of the sites that should be (and indeed are) there, it cannot retrieve anything. 2) If I click insert new credential it does nothing (no box where to insert the new data)

Note! Browser update 94.0.2 (Mac) Logged in my FF account and Sync activated.

Suddenly lost my Lockwise Passwords

Hello Everyone,

I have a Firefox account and I used to have all my passwords saved in Lockwise app (on my Huawei mobile) and in Lockwise section on my laptop (Linux) and all these passwords were synced across all my devices. I changed my mobile to IPhone and I didn't install Lockwise but I was still able to get to my logins via my laptop. And I was very cautious that I kept syncing every now and then.

The problem is that I formatted my laptop recently to windows 11, when I installed Firefox on my laptop again I was expecting to be able to retrieve all my passwords (around 200 entries) since everything was synced, but to my surprise everything was lost except for 16 entries.

Is there any way to backup my old list of passwords?

Please note that I still have my old phone (Huawei) with the old passwords list and the auto sync turned off. Is there any way to backup these passwords from Huawei to Iphone and to my Laptop?

I just synced two new devices (Android phone and tablet) using the scanned QR code because I got the error message that the password I was trying to use was incorrect. I don't understand what has happened, as I am "signed in" on desktop, laptop and those two devices with that password, as far as I know.

I was trying to set up the Recovery Key, but that also tells me that the current password is incorrect. I do not want to lose all of my saved passwords, history, etc., which is what it sounds like will happen if I try to reset my password.

Help!

I used different methods like this one but it seems none of them are working. These are steps I'm doing:

  • Closing firefox
  • Deleteing new logins.json and key4.db
  • copying old logins.json and key3.db

However as soon as I open firefox it will create a key4.db file and overwrite login.json. I checked my old login.json is in correct format.

I am looking for a way to simply delete 100's of cookies, but not all, with out using the very limited "Manage cookies and site data" window. It takes forever to delete 5 or 6 at a time. What is the replacement for when you could type "." and this window expanded to full page and the selection process was so simple?

Hi, I realise this sort of thing is not exactly the end of the world but I'll ask anyway. In Proton, the background of the Settings page, about:config page and the Library window have changed to black [with white text]. Before, everything was white background with black text...is there any way at all to go back to that, without changing the Theme that I've been using for years? The Firefox colour settings change the Settings and about:config pages background to white but then you have the glaring white high contrast etc on every web page...and it still has a black background in the Library window, regardless of what colour settings I have there. I can change all this easily with some other theme or that Firefox Color addon [which is how I got the second picture below] but if that's the only option I would rather just put up with it as it is.

First pic is how it is now, second is how it always was before Proton and I want it to be again.

Thanks

"Homepage and new windows" setting allows "Custom URLs" as an option. "New tabs" setting allows only "Firefox home page (default)" or "Blank page"

Why is there no longer an option in "New tabs" for a "Custom URL" ??

Is this just another of those program designers' decisions of a less-is-more "improvement" . . . ? Well, it's not.

How can I return to having my Homepage URL also designated for new tabs?

Thank you.

Good People, Followed screen pop-up to make Firefox default browser. Now all *.pdf files have Firefox icons and open as .html pages, I think! Seen some solutions, but for older versions of windows and followed procedure: go to Adobe, Edit, Preferences, General, 'Select Default PDF Handler', as dialog Does not have Adobe Reader XI, step two was Change to Adobe Reader DC, clicked continue, but NO Windows Configuration Screen appears. Using Version 94.0.2 (64bit) with Windows 10. Also, help answer said not necessarily a Firefox problem, also within Adobe Reader. Not comfortable with changes to be made in the registry. James

I tried optimising firefox's settings for the most possible privacy. When i visit firstpartysimulator.org and complete the test, the result claims i do have a decent protection against tracking while my "software" is not checking for "do not track policies". By software im not sure if this is ment to be the operatingsystem or the browser, firefox. The result also shows i do have a nearly unique fingerprint. If i remove one of my current extensions -> canvas blocker, i do have a unique fingerprint. This is not good as i see it.

How can i make firefox (or windows if so) check for do not track policies? I noticed the duckduckgo addon claims to always check for do not track policies but im not sure if i really need this extension. Also do not track only works if the host website supports it as far as i know. To get this to an end, the question is 1, how to make us of do not track policies, 2 how can i make my fingerprint less unique? I only changed a couple settings in about:config and use a total of 3 browser extensions, this shouldnt be to much unique, or?

I recently googled a product and clicked on a link to their site (not an ad result). Shortly after I got an email from the company saying "thanks for checking us out." I never filled in any form with my email address. Is Firefox allowing Google to send my email address to the company so they can send marketing emails? I have Enhanced Tracking Protection on.
