I need a password for an e-mail address that is on my Thunderbird. I know where the setting is at, but when I copy the password it gives me some really long one. I then try to proceed to log into it on the gmail website. Gmail won't accept it as the actual password. So, how do I fix this issue I have? I checked for the other e-mails I attached on Thunderbird... it does the same thing. It gives me some password that isn't my actual password that I know it to be.

Or maybe the question I should ask is how do I decipher the long password it gives me into my actual one?

If you need any proofs I can always provide it.

Please help me as that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Hello,

Since the update to the new Firefox for Android (79.0), some of my saves usernames and corresponding passwords are not prefilled anymore. Some others are. The credentials are all still there - I can see and review them in the Settings -> Logins and passwords -> Saved logins.

Some credentials are for HTTP basic authentication (2x), some are for simple login forms (2x). From the basic authentications, both are *not* prefilled. From the regular HTML forms, one is and one is not.

Is this a know bug? If so, how can I help to diagnose the problem? If not, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance, Frans-Willem

clearing the data in settings does not remove stored passwords

hey you guys,

I have a VBS script that dumps all cache data fro the FF dir in windows, however it keeps specific files so I don't have to go through the frustration of re-entering passwords and stuff in HTML forms. I now wanted to get of all saved logins for the first time, however when I dumped all the cache data from the settings menu, all of the info was retained in FF. I had to manually remove everything from here:

about:logins.

Where is the setting to get rid of **everything** stored when dumping the cache in the settings? (see attached images for the places and/or scripts I am currently using to attempt to do this).

thanks!

Login credential saving and prefill has been working great and synching across devices extremely well for quite awhile now. Very impressive.

Unfortunately, I have encountered a website where credentials appear not savable. I verified the domain is not listed as one that should be excluded from this process. I also tried the solution described at this link which involves saving a javascript as a bookmark, then using that bookmark in the course of logging into a site where credentials are not being saved.

I am wondering if you can verify for me that this domain cannot have its login credentials saved by Firefox and if possible, explain why this is the case. The domain is washingtontimes.com, the signin link is in the upper right corner of the page if you go there.

I recognize this hard to check if you do not have an account with the site in question. My hope is you can see something to explain what I am seeing. This is a big ask, so I want to express special appreciation for any assistance or information you might be able to provide.

Thank you.

I have seen this question asked and archived many times. I am in level III support professional and at home I have a Minnicks machine with Firefox to do what little surfing I do in my off time. All of a sudden without rhyme or reason I’m getting bad certificate notices and unsafe site notices for widely widely used sites. All the previous archived answers are very very vague & sometimes even condescending. this is the beginning of September 2020 in the forums are full of people complaining about it but apparently you see no reason to address it. Quit blaming the user. There is definitely something up I didn’t change any settings and I did not change my surfing habits and I didn’t download anything shaky. Whether you answer this or not is now academic because the way your previous answers were worded I have no intention of using Firefox again. And I’ve used it for many many years.

Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit; Windows 10 Pro

When Enhanced Tracking is Strict some websites lose functionality.

The only options seem to be.

    Disable Enhanced Tracking for that site

or Set Enhanced Tracking to Standard or Custom for all sites

So far, the frequented websites all seem to work with Strict except one and, for it, I would like to have it set to Standard rather than none.

If I am correct, let me know. if wrong, either direct me to instructions or just tell me. Yes, I have looked.

Thanks!

PS. My current option, for that one website, is to run Firefox in a separate Sandbox and set all websites to Standard.

I noticed there is something in the Firefox browser now named Lockwise which allows anyone using my computer to see all my passwords. This seems to be a major problem when it is supposed to be concerned with security. If my laptop is stolen they will have access to all my passwords now???? This does not look like a security feature to me. How do I get rid of or disable this function?

Thx
