hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

Hi, With Firefox 81.0.2 64-bit running on Windows 7, I can't logout from my account on a very specific site. If I delete the 2 cookies the site wrote on my computer, I'm then presented with the logon window and I'm able to login again but not logout until I delete the 2 fresh cookies the site just put on my computer during the new session. Should I log under a private window, nothing being written to my computer, log out is always possible. I'm also able to log out from my current session with an older version of firefox (50.1.0). This also close the session opened under Firefox 81. At the moment, only one site is behaving like this. I first asked the support of this site. Here's its reply: <<That is an interesting problem you have there! It might be that your session wasn't properly removed from our server but I know that we restarted our webserver 3 days ago, so that should have resolved itself if that was the problem. I don't have any other suggestions, but if a private window works, this suggests an issue with your cookie management of the browser.>>

Please may you help ? TIA

I accidentally entered a password in the login field. When asked by the browser about saving the password, he answered in the negative. I was surprised when the next time I entered the site, I saw two login options ([LOGIN]; and [PASSWORD]) in the dropdown menu. [LOGIN] matched my login. [PASSWORD] matched my password. Both logins are without a password. There is no stored data in lockwise for this site. If you save a random password for an unnecessary login ([PASSWORD]-[1111]), then it will be displayed in lockwise. Removing an account from lockwise removes the password, but does not affect the login. The only solution I found was to change the lockwise login. ([PASSWORD]-[1111] -> [1]-[111]), But after deleting this account, the login [PASSWORD] is returned to the drop-down menu.

I clicked to accept the latest Firefox add on which stated "all my bookmarks and tabs will be saved". They have all disappeared. If i click on the "old firebox data" on my desktop surely that should produce all the bookmarks and tabs. But no. Instead it brings up 2 file names with indecipherable titles. eg one begins "tula7e15.". And if you click on that you get just another set of technical titles like "saved telemetry-pings" or "features". And if you click on these it then says "file empty".

The same thing happens if I click on "Restore" or "Profile" ie it just leads me to a set of nonesense categories with nothing there. So surely there must be a simple way of restoring my bookmark titles ( I had about 40 bookmarks) given that it only took one click to remove them when I took up the firefox add on ?

Thankyou. P.s. please suggest something simple as I am not great with computer technology. Philip

Hello, I use firefox only on my notebook since I don't have additional internet devices. What does synchronisation exactly mean? If sync is on and I select " settings, bookmarks, chronic, open tabs and installed add-ons " in the dialog and then "synchronise": Does it mean that after a crash or freh install/re-install on this machine or on another new notebook all these categories are saved in my firefox-account(?) so I can apply them to my fresh installtion and my former last firefox session including all the settings, bookmarks, open tabs etc. are fully recovered then? What would I have to do/click to "load" all this data to my fresh installation? Would be very nice if somebody could give me a short hint :) Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I installed a proxy on Firefox. On the website facebook.com when I click on a button that open a new firefox window to connect my instagram account to my facebook page, it opens a white page with "about:blank" URL instead of the instagram registration page. What does it mean and what am I supposed to do to solve it?

Thank you.

Whenever I save a webpage, it says failed in the Download history. The page actually does save but shows it as failed. If I double-click on the "failed" page in the Download history, the download history says that it saved, but if I open the re-saved page the re-saved webpage many times looks like a non-html page or simply only saves part of the page. This is puzzling in that if I ignore the false message that the page failed to save and open the page from my download folder, all looks fine. Please help, Thanks, pianotech

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.

Firefox 81.0.1 (32-bit)

Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago.

Now whenever I go to a website which requires as login password it asks me for it every time whereas previously it just automatically logged me in.

Even more annoying is that the login boxes are already populated with old login details. However these are not for the most recent login details (username/password).

How do I fix this?

After watching a youtube video in full-screen mode [f] or [F11] (in a window with about 20 concurrently running tabs of various other (non-video) things), the whole control interface area (address bar, menu bar, window header) disappears. This only affects the window that played the video, & although the other tabs areyet available through [Ctrl]+<hotkey>, all tabs in the wind lack the window/browser control interface. Firefox returns to normal after a re-opening of the browser. This disappearance does not resolve by just pressing the [Alt] key or by moving the mouse cursor to the top of the screen or by pressing [f] or [F11] to toggle full screen/normal. [F4], [Alt]+D, [Ctrl]+L, & [F6] are of no effect as URL input becomes unavailable (including no known access to "about:" features. [F12] does what it normally does (show webpage source code/elements). [F7] triggers caret browsing prompt. I did not bother with [F1], but all unmentioned F-keys were of no effect when pressed without combining with other keys. Perhaps it's a Win7 64-Bit issue, but I hope that you have a FireFox answer. Thanks in advance.
