Hello

The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

https://prod-tp.sumo.mozit.cloud/en-US/questions/1271509#question-reply

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

I refreshed Firefox to fix a problem of links not loading to no avail so I decided to reinstall. First I copied my profile folder. After reinstalling Firefox I was able to import my bookmarks from a previously exported backup. Here's the fun part...I am unable to find the new profile folder so I can copy my old password files into it. The new folder has only 6 folders and 1 file in it whereas the old profile folder had about 19 folders and 52 files. The 2 files I need to copy back into my new profile folder are logins.json and key4.db. So far I have been unable to Google any helpful support articles so I decided to try Mozilla support directly. I am desperate to restore my old files because if I have to manually copy passwords from a different Firefox installation it will take a loooong time.

By the way, the original issue of Firefox not loading has occurred on my other computer as well. Is the new version broken?

Under privacy and security - forms and passwords - I have checked "Ask to save logins and passwords" - Many times - when visiting a new site - the dropdown that asks if I want to save - does not appear - and/or - the login is there - but the password is not saved. "Password Editor" in add-ons is not compatible with my version of Firefox - Without going crazy - there should be a way - under this setting - "privacy and security" - to Manually add a web-site with login/password. And if not - why not?

Firefox updated and lost all my saved passwords. I can not access my Facebook because Facebook is screwed up every time I log out of FB. and log back in Fb. tells me wrong password for 2 years it has been this way. I need my saved passwords because Firefox used to log me in Facebook every time i went there but after the update that is gone as well ????? I know nothing about computers and was lucky enough to only waste 2 hours trying to figure out how to do this ???? I have no freaking idea how I will ever get an answer to get help so I hope everyone enjoyed reading this amusing problem!!! Fuck computers and computer life I should have filed a law suit against Texas A&M for forcing me to use these demonic pieces of excrement!!!

I've been using Firefox Quantum for over a month now on Ubuntu 18.04. However, the extensions Grammarly and LastPass which I need the most do not work as expected. LastPass does not automatically sign in nor does the overlay interface work. I have to right-click on the extension button everytime and launch lastpass in a separate window to Sign in. Nor do I get a prompt to save the password when I create a user account on a website.

Next, Grammarly fails to work - and when it works, Firefox notifies that this extension is causing slowdowns, why?

I've got Mozilla-Plugins like LastPass and NordVpn, where I can enter my username or my email account at first, but each time I try to switch to the next box , where I should be able to enter my Password, either by cursor or tab the Plugin window closes instantly.

I have already tried it with every other plugin disabled to pinpoint if it's maybe a problem another plugin causes, but that's not it.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04 LTS

So every idea is appreciated!

my 4 paypal log ins no longer appear as drop down when trying to log into paypal. Once I enter the paypal user name i want to use the passwords do appear.

also - I use a site named hhparts.com . The user name shows along with other user names which are not saved for that site and when I click on the user name no password appears in the drop down although it is on my saved log in list.

Thanks -Allan

Entry of password characters seems to work but login deemd incorrect, IE11 works fine eg Capita pension and Bank of Ireland sites- always.

Two sites: UK Teachers Pension (Capita) and Bank Of Ireland (other sites fine), ask for entry of particular characters from password/PIN (eg 3rd, 5th, 7th) into boxes on log-in page. Entry seems to go fine but on submission: 'incorrect...try again...2 tries remaining'. Using IE11 works fine.

Bank of Ireland was getting reports of this last year but the issue persists, the pension site was ok last year but not now.

Win 7-32 bit, with up to date FF does this as does win 7-64 bit machine with FF 52.6.0 ESR.

uMatrix is installed but disabling filtering makes no difference: FF fails with these sites IE11 works. Has FF deprecated something (Java?) that some sites still use?

When I go into Firefox settings and click on Saved Logins, it takes several minutes for the window to open up. Afterwards, the searches are relatively fast. Deleting an item likewise takes minutes. I believe this also affects the auto-fill of passwords when Firefox first starts up.. It does not auto-fill at first.

Is there any way to optimize the saved logins database? PS: This is under Fedora Linux. Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit)

I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

After update to FF 59.0 (64 bit) (OS - Win7 Ultimate) no passwords are saved and "Key" icon is missing. All settings in FF are correct: not using Private Browsing; Options>Privacy & Security>Remember logins and passwords for websites is checked; there are no "exceptions" (list is empty), etc. Even previously saved logins that are listed DO NOT AUTO FILL anymore! BitDefender is disabled to make sure no issues with AV software. See screen shot attached showing NO KEY ICON (for ANY website/URL)!

Firefox keeps autocompleting and has a drop down for my username for a website. I do not have the password/username saved.

I found this article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries I followed the directions. It worked, no more drop down. However, after I signed into the site and back out, the drop down came back.

I don't mind Firefox autocompleting for most websites, but for sensitive websites, like online banking, how can I get it to NEVER autocomplete or create a drop down? Again, I don't have the username/password saved, and I don't necessarily want to disable to feature for every website.

Thank you!
