I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

Hi Everyone,

Environment details: OS: Windows7 (64bit) Firefox Version : 90.0.2 (64bit)

I am trying to launch Firefox as a different user on my machine and trying to open a web page which uses Widows Single sing on. I want the browser to use the Run as account credential which I used to launch the browser to be used for the Webpage authentication. Tried setting the following configs network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris and network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris but didn't worked out. Any Idea how to force the browser to use the run as credential to authenticate into a webpage page that uses windows Single sign on.

Thank You, Kalidhas P

Hi. Firefox keeps asking me to enter my Primary password at random and this all started about 2 weeks ago. Most time it pops up the next day and sometimes every 2-4hrs. I rarely shutdown my system due to work related stuff but at the same time i do update my system constantly. I also use a VPN since i work from home. (P.S. It doesn't route all my traffic through the VPN, only the ones destined to the office.) What can i do to resolve this? I do plan to uninstall and reinstall Firefox but I want that to be the last solution if all else fails. Thanks.

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

Hi all,

Recently, everytime I go to download a file, firefox is sending my download to my "temp/local" file and I can't retrieve my downloads. I don't think I changed anything on my laptop, it seems that one day - it just switched to sending my downloads to my temp/local folder.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can return this back to letting me "Open the file" and then "saving" it to my desktop - like I previously was doing?

I've been on google checking everything...but I felt like I wasgoing down a rabbit hole and changing this and that - and I'm afraid it might make things worse.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

When going to a site with FF, 90 which has partial secure information FF still allows access even though the site is not completely https. this should not be allowed HTTPS only should work if the site is completely compliant with HTTPS.

The example site is https://www.brampton.ca//en/online-services/pages/bramcams.aspx

If you click on one of the camera images with "https mode in all windows only" set, no image is displayed and the icon suggest HTTPS but the site is only partial https.

With "https mode in all windows" no configured you get the secure lock icon with the exclamation. see enclosed.

Tried to open my email <myxfinity.com>. After installing Password Robo___ (can't remember name of extension); told to create "Primary Password." Followed instructions, created easily remembered phrase + symbol & registered. Now when I try to edit old myxifinity login, asked for Primary Password. Entered what I just created, & won't accept it. "Please enter Primary Password." Now can't access email, which worked just fine before activating Password Robo(whatever). PC dead for a week, repaired yesterday, just accessed successfully this AM, one biz turned down THREE credit card charges. Android hacked into last week, Lively CS gave me wrong instructions to reboot in Safe Mode; ditto Googling "Restart Android in Safe Mode." Scammers put malware on my phone--can only run in Safe mode, in which no apps/no texts, no access to internet. PLEASE help!! TIA

Hi everyone.

Thanks in advance for your help, and apologies if this question was covered elsewhere.

My graduate school uses Duo for authentication. When I log into the intranet on my laptop, I'm prompted to send a "push" notification to my phone. There's the option to "remember this device for 30 days", referring in this case to my laptop. But even when I check the box, I'm asked again to authenticate via phone each time I use the intranet on my laptop, seemingly despite having sought to "remember this device" previously. This is inconvenient, as I'm frequently without my phone.

How can I get the "remember" feature to take effect?

Again, thanks for your help -- and apologies for any indelicacies in my attempted description of the situation.

Mozilla has no true feedback page any more, so I chose to post here. I kept the "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" box unchecked since I began to use the Firefox browser (years ago). While I was researching a different issue, I found other users' posts about app.normandy. They all said that it allowed Mozilla to do what Mozilla promised not to do: run studies in violation of users' preference to opt out. Based on what I learned from those posts, I found where app.normandy was in my computer's about:config and toggled it to false. I want to thank those other users for their posts. Mozilla's explanation, also according to those posts, is that "Normandy is a collection of servers, workflows, and Firefox components that enables Mozilla to remote control Firefox clients in the wild based on precise criteria." Aside from whether or not Mozilla should be remote-controlling clients in this way, does it really consider all the diverse places in the world where its users live to be "in the wild?"

According to various help articles, I should be able to export my logins and passwords using the Settings- logins and passwords and then click on the three dots in the upper right. That should display a menu with an option to export. In my case, when I click on the three dots I get only these options: Preferences, Help, Lockwise for Android, Lockwise for iPhone/iPad. There is no option to export anywhere on the page. How can I backup and logins so that I can load them on my new computer? As above, Firefox version is 72.0.2 and I am using Linux Mint 19.3.
