hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Unless I'm totally blind, there is no Two-step authentication option on the security panel. What is going on? I can't use sync without activating 2FA. If there is really no way to sync other than a non-existent 2FA, I'm going back to Chrome.

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

Hi!

I want to dump/debug http traffic with mitm proxy: https://github.com/ganskef/LittleProxy-mitm . This proxy generates it's own root certificate which i manually imported to Firefox from about:preferences#privacy > View Certificates > Authorities > Import. I verified that cert shows up after importing it. But I get errors despite of that:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.youtube.com. Peer’s certificate has an invalid signature.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE

Is there a way to bypass it?

I have been trying to unlock the security setting preventing me from accessing my work hub link. I know it's secure, it's literally my job's website portal for a Healthcare network. I used to be able to access it no problem but all of a sudden Firefox is preventing me from accessing it without an option to disable protection when I click on more info like I usually can on browsers.

Hello,

saving login data for diffrent homepages works in general. But there is one homepage, where Firefox is just able to save the password, but not the username. For every login, i have to type in my mail adress (username) manually. The site where this happens is: https://www.ebike-connect.com/login?lang=de-de You can try it on your own. Just create an free account and try to save your login data.

P.S.: I tried saving the login data with the edge browser and it was no problem. It can log me in automatically.

I'm running Firefox 91.0.2 on a UK Windows 10 PC. I'm simply trying to clear my browser cache, but not my cookies. My problem:

(1) Click on the "triple bar" icon, top-right, to open Firefox menu. (2) Click "Settings". (3) Click "Privacy & Security" on left side. (4) Scroll down (if necessary) to "Cookies and Site Data" section. (5) Click on "Clear Data..." button. (6) Two options are displayed: "Cookies and Site Data" and "Cached Web Content". I do NOT want to clear all my cookies as relogging into all my websites would be a pain. I ONLY want to clear my cache. (7) I attempt to click on the buttons to select the option I want, but the buttons appear to be UNRESPONSIVE. There are no ticks/check marks appearing. The only difference is that the border of the buttons changes colour slightly, but it's VERY hard to see. (Maybe this is connected with using the dark theme?) No matter what combination of button clicks I use, the two buttons remain unchecked, and they look identical. (8) If I click the "Clear" button a warning appears saying that all my cookies will be deleted. This is NOT what I want. (9) I give up and click the "Cancel" button. (10) I close down Firefox, return to the Windows desktop, and close down all possible applications and processes. I try to repeat the above steps, but the same problem happens again. (11) I give up and try to create a Firefox bug report, but I find there is now no bug reporting facility! Users can no longer submit bugs for Firefox!!! So I come here and post my problem, hoping that the community can help. (12) Thanks for any help offered!

Since couple of months ago, FF started to ask for master password after 30 minutes of inactivity. I have auto-refresh for some tabs which use Basic Authentication. After 30min those tabs stops refreshing and FF opens multiple (5) dialogs for master password. This secondary layer of security is pretty annoying as I have my computer secured on multiple levels by multiple factors already. I am getting very annoyed by this, is there any way to disable this "feature"? I have security.ask_for_password = 0 and signon.masterPasswordReprompt.timeout_ms = 0 but it keeps asking (now bit less often but still does). I just want master password entered once when I start the session and keep it open until I quit the browser.
