I clicked the green "Automatically add" button for "Troubleshooting information:" just below this text box, and it took me to a dead page, and lost everything I had typed (yeah, rookie mistake on my part, fine)... the landing page address: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/426841/addon-426841-latest.xpi ..
.. with text:
We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for.
The page or file you requested wasn't found on our site. It's possible that you clicked a link that's out of date, or typed in the address incorrectly.
..... and continuing on for a bit after that.
basic problem is described in subject line. I could gripe endlessly about prior disclosure, and how appalling it is to see this problem persist over several versions, but mostly I'm curious how it does not seem to have been asked / answered yet?
I will upload screencaps if needed, but I am going to a banking website, entering UID & password, and telling FF to update the password. Not only does it not update for that UID, instead putting it into the "no username" storage for this website, but it is storing asterisks (in the same amount as the actual password) instead of the password. Yes, I clicked on the little "eye" next to the password field under Tools.Options.Privacy .. and yes, I tried trusting and just using the stored password both for the UID (it kept the old password) and also for the "no username" and neither works. I can update the password manually when under Tools.Options.Privacy, but I do not have the time nor inclination to do this for hundreds of logins.
This is entirely unacceptable, and needs to be fixed post haste.
Now copying and pasting everything I typed here, because I fully expect that I'll click "Post Question" and all will be lost...
FF 71.0 64bit updated 09 Dec 2019 - Win7 home 64 bit .. hardly any addins/plugins as the ones I used have mostly been deprecated through all the updates.
My profile along with stored passwords has been carried forward through at least three years of updates with no problems, prior to Quantum.
