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.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

I thought my screen was locked. Then I checked another tab and finally realized it was the pop-up blocker on my current tab causing the problem. I was trying to manually hot key open a link (a news article) on the current tab (also a news article). The blocker was refusing this action. It would be absurd to have to unblock this action for each website when my intent is so obviously clear given a manual hot key open. Is there some setting I am missing? A change made to the code? I have never had this happen before.

Since the last update (91.0.1 ) my urls are no longer caching in the address bar. I used to have a nice list cached of the primary sites I hit but no longer?

Always use private browsing mode > off Remember browsing and download history > on Remember search and form history > on Clear history when Firefox closes > off

If I hit SHIFT + ^ I can see my history but it is recent history only. How can this be changed back to caching my frequently visited sites?

This option is not available in my browser version; thus, I'm hoping there's a newer workaround for this.

Hi all, Since latest updates to my Ubuntu system, both Firefox and Thunderbird frequently ask that the primary password be reentered. This is tedious, and not necessary on my system, which only I have access to. Can I change the settings either to only require a password once only when the programme is invoked or to extend the time that a password remain valid? (If there is a method - I can't find it!) I'd appreciate some advice. Kind regards 13arry 13arker
