How to use master password only to reveal password?

Hi,

It's a pain right now using a master password on firefox. Every time I go to a website that needs my login, Firefox ask for my master password before it will load the user/pass into the login page. If I don't use the master password, then the problem is that if I leave my computer unlock for a little bit, someone can come by and click show password in setting and it will just show the passwords without asking for the master password.

So what I want is to only use master password when I click on show password in setting, and I don't have to do anything when trying to login to a page.

This is doable at work, with their security setting for all computer and it works great. When I click show password on Firefox at work, the computer ask for my Windows login password before it would show the Firefox password. That's what I want the master password to do. Only ask for it when I click show password.

Thanks

I can't login to my former firefox account after a 'break' (deleting the Firefoxbrowser from my computer), then installed it again a while later. I have to admit I'm not totally sure where in Firefox I created my former login, if there is more than one place in the Firefox-webbrowser you can create an account so to say.. ? Also now I have some form of an account, created for to put this question, the one I used before was more about making Firefox more personalised as I recall it.

Thank you

Firefox 59.0.2 64 bit becomes unresponsive on page load. Cannot exit browser through upper right "X". Must use Task Manager to kill it.

Windows 10 64 bit, Cleartype is enabled. Possibly significant: machine is a Thinkpad X61 tablet, with simple Intel integrated graphics, GMA X3100, from 2008. RAM usage does not appear excessive. Machine has 8GB RAM. Processor is L7500 dual core.

The problem may only occur, or be accentuated, when another user application is running, even in the background. It resembles the reports of machines running Windows 7.;

I have a unique and perplexing touchscreen issue using the latest Firefox browser on a 2017 Surface Pro (8/256) with the latest software and firmware updates.

When I add a new tab and subsequently try to delete that new tab, Firefox often freezes meaning that the browser does not feedback/refresh on my clicking (touching). HOWEVER when I force a browser refresh by clicking on any other window Firefox refreshes and acts on all the clicks I made while it was frozen. The clicks were processed by Firefox but it appears that the browser is not repainting after each click. To add insult to injury when I use a USB mouse this does not occur. Also I run identical Firefox on another desktop via mouse with no issues.

Certainly this seems to point to a Windows software issue but this issue does happen with any other apps including IE and Edge.

Among other things, actions I have tried include:

1. Run in safe mode 2. Re-install with new profile 3. Toggle many of recommended about:config settings 4. Change themes 5. Re-installed Windows touch screen driver

Below is my troubleshooting report.

Any ideas? Richard

I have a self-signed server certificate file. I specifically want to install the file from local disk: it was obtained from another source rather than attempting to have Firefox first connect to the site and *then* add an exception. I want to be able to go to Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> View Certificates -> Servers -> Import...

However, that last step is missing.

I started my PC this morning and tried to start Firefox Quantum. The PC rebooted. When it came back up, I used Internet Explorer to troubleshoot the problem. I found that accessibility services might be the culprit. I do use Ease of Access to make my mouse more visible. However, when I go to that feature of PC Settings (I am using MS Windows 10 Home), there is no way that I can see to turn off the mouse services. The only thing I can do is select the first option in size and color. The Help/Troubleshooting item doesn't have a tab for Accessiblility, so no luck there. Anything you guys can do to help would be appreciated. Internet Explorer is way too clunky, Google Chrome is incomprehensible and MS Edge... Thanks.

As of 2 days ago I have been unable to access my Insider content on ESPN.COM. Called ESPN, went through steps to fix the issue. They recommended I try it on a different browser, and it worked with Chrome, therefore the issue appears to be with Firefox. I do not want Chrome as my default browser but I use ESPN quite a bit. Any suggestions?

Hi folks, On my new MacBook Pro the color saturation of websites appears excessive. I've attached a screenshot comparing the color reproduction of Firefox (on left) vs. Safari (on right). If you compare the "3-D Cease Fire" and "Beauty and the Beast" blu-ray case images, you'll easily see that the color saturation on Firefox is excessive. Similarly, the "Best Blu-ray Movie Deals" button is too saturated. I notice the phenomenon on almost all websites.

I've tried playing around with the various gfx.color options to no avail so far. Maybe I haven't hit the right combination.

Thank you!

Best, Joel
