Running Firefox 45.0.1 on Windows 10 Anti-virus: Avira Anti-Virus Free Firewall: same

As stated, Firefox is not saving my passwords (or form information or maintaining Sync connection). I HAVE already read through the FAQs and other community questions and answers. I do have a Master Security password. I do know the password. But passwords are not being saved. I cannot find any other software that would interfere with this. I cannot find any setting in my anti-virus/firewall software (Avira) that has anything to do with this Firefox function. I am NOT using any other password saving software or extension or other application. There is no issue with the password manager exceptions file.

I do NOT have a problem with password saving on my Win XP PC. I DO HAVE SYNC SETUP AND TURNED ON but this does not populate the password manager on the Win 10 PC. It does sync everything else (although not all extensions seem to be configured to share all setup data and usage information, particularly tab group extensions).

Also, on the Win 10 machine, it periodically loses the Sync connection. This is very annoying. How do I prevent this? It never happens on the Win XP computer.

Also, on the Win 10 machine, it does not seem to populate form data boxes (name, address, email address, etc.) when I visit websites. Why? Is this also a Firefox issue or is this an issue with the individual websites? It doesn't seem to happen very often on the Win XP computer.

Please help.

I really cannot be too descriptive at the moment ; I was hacked by an ' amateur ' cam-girl ' 17 months ago and am still at her mercy, in spite of having spent nice sums of money with so-called ' tech-groups ' to rid me of her. This new system of communications IMPOSED upon us - how ? [ that's for another moment ] - is so plentiful with vulnerabilities that anything can happen on the face of the globe.

Greetings

Cor-el - sent me suggestions to try - which did not help any, and I couldn't reply to the email; Cor-el suggested:


Can you attach a screenshot?

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

   Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

You need to close and restart Firefox after toggling this setting.

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes

You can check if there is an update for your graphics display driver and check for hardware acceleration related issues.

   https://support.mozilla.org/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

It is possible that there is a problem with the font that is used to display the text.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the Inspector ("3-bar" menu button or Tools > Web Developer) with this element selected. You can check the font(s) used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

   https://developer.mozilla.org/Tools/Page_Inspector

You can do a font test to see if you can identify corrupted font(s).

   http://browserspy.dk/fonts-flash.php?detail=1

You can try different default fonts and temporarily disable website fonts to test the selected default font.

   Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced
   [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
   Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
   Make sure that you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB
================================================

I performed the suggestions as best as I could, with no results.

Here is a 2nd Firefox problem I just encountered. This support page would NOT upload 2 small screenshots. I waited for 10 minutes for the 1st one up upload; all I saw was the rotating busy icon. One pic is 59.3 kb, the other pic is only 75 kb - your own support page is not working correctly - what gives?


The links only show up when I highlight the whole page as shown in the attached pictures.
