I have 2 OS's on my computer (on different drives) - in W7 my Firefox Master Password works normally but when I try to open Firefox when using W10 the same password DOESN'T work. I'd rather not lose all the stored info by doing a reset of it on the W10 OS. Is there another way to resolve it?

Hi everyone,

I do need help on the following issue: I'm logged in my mailbox with Firefox browser. The password is saved and available in the browser settings. BUT. If I try to enter it and log in from another device, the mail service says the password is wrong. I can't understand how it is possible. The browser should use one of the saved passwords for the authorization, right? Why doesn't it work outside this very browser?

MAYBE one day I changed the password in the mail service, logged in, BUT didn't refresh it in the browser settings? May the browser use some cookies, service files or something like that for authorization despite unactual password saved? If yes, then how is it possible to extract the true password out of those files?

I turned to the mail service support, but they can't help me, because I didn't enter my real name, phone number or something during registration that could help to check my identity. So the only opportunity to save my mail is to use the browser files somehow. I'm going to reinstall Windows and I will loose access to my mail forever in this case that would be very very bad.. ((( Please, help!

I refreshed my firefox (as recommened ). I have now lost all my passwords and "restore previous history" .. I have managed to log in to Firefox but can't retrieve my passwords other than re-registering with my various accounts. How can I get back to my previous version of Firefox which was what I used for years with no problems.

I've been using a private Firefox window, but I notice Google keeps sending me YouTube videos and Pinterest suggestions based on obscure things I've only mentioned in a chat forum, while using this browser. And having to do with things mentioned in a text someone sent me. Neither I nor the texter have a Google phone. I don't have Chrome installed, so it's not like I had their browser open. Don't know how they're doing it. It's creeping me out. It cannot be coincidence.

The highlighted statements in the first screenshot are completely untrue. There is no option on the Lockwise menu allowing for the importation of logins & passwords from a file. I'm running v88.0.

You can see on the second screenshot what options are available and they do not include, "Import from a file."

There needs to be a way to import logins & passwords and extensions from an old version of Firefox or from a different computer, just as examples. I was very hopeful that you had reinstated that ability, but it's not true. Please fix this.

Also, not that it matters for this question, but the highlighted statement in the third screenshot is also untrue. There is no hamburger menu (three lines) on the Firefox screen. It's a down arrow.

How do I remove the mixed content protection permanently and will it remove the banner that appears? I am sick of the banner that pops up at times that affects the browsing ability which is entirely annoying and how do I remove the shield and padlock from my fire fox entirely. I hate having to disable those as they interfere with the operation of my firefox and website that I have because not all the content on my website fails to load if the mixed content is disabiled. I'm tired of having this on my browser. I have to enable all my site features everytime I reload my browser. This is totally in the way.

Hello,

I am writing a Bachelor thesis on the Theme "Data privacy analysis on mobile Android Browser". Therefore I chose Firefox for Android and Firefox Focus ass two of the browsers to compare.

While a lot of information is online available or is presented in the app itself it seems that the following points are not:

- Does Firefox for Android support and implement by default a safe browsing API like Firefox Focus? (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/safe-browsing-firefox-focus)

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus support Secure DNS as the desktop version? If so are these enabled by default?

- Does Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus preloads pages while using a search engine in order to increase browsing speed?

- Does Firefox for Android saves Auto-fill form data? If so, how can this data be deleted again?

- Most browsers block in their Site settings "Pop-ups and redirects". Firefox for Android blocks pop-ups and Firefox Focus does not block them. Although I could not find any information regarding the "redirects" aspect. Is Firefox on mobile Devices allowing those?

Thanks in advance for any information!

I am occasionally using an e-mail server with out of date TLS settings. Unfortunately, there is no work around for one particular job that I have to do.

When I first was updated to version 78, I got the error described in the string, "can not send mail after update ver78...." I updated my TLS settings as follows: security.tls.version.min = 1 security.tls.version.enable-deprecated = true

And everything seemed to work. However, today, I can no longer send e-mails with that server. It appears that another update broke things again.

I am currently running 78.10.1 on Windows 10. I can receive e-mail, no problem. With the bad server, a test message appears to be sent and gets put in the sent messages folder but doesn't show up in my inbox on another account. I'm not sure of the date but it appears that a message I sent on April 28 worked.

I'm filing a bug report
