Good evening, I downloaded firefox developer and I must say that I was very amazed by the wonderful browser you have created, the only problem is that when I want to go to view the credentials, any person can view the password (I use a window login password) .

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!

Please can someone tell me why is there such a long delay between opening firefox and the master password prompt?

Also if anyone knows if there is some way to either speed up the master password prompt so that it opens instantly on opening firefox or prevent it from opening until a password box is present on the webpage.

The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Hello. I think I asked this question a while ago but I lost my access during a disk migration. I am alarmed and disappointed that when I log in to sites, Firefox shows me prior login information to choose from. I have attached a screen shot from protonmail with my actual logins obscured, but note how it also showed me a gmail account? This implies some general saving feature.

I have repeatedly scoured every setting that firefox has and have absolutely definitely unchecked all boxes to do with asking to save passwords, and saving them. I have also carefully selected that cookies and data be deleted on exit and I have no exceptions to this.

This is the antithesis of the security approach that firefox led me to think it takes! Could someone tell me what is going on? Something is behind the scenes scraping information that firefox then references, by the looks of it.

Many thanks for your suggestions, and sorry if this question has already been answered: I could not find anything that directly addressed this question (including my potential earlier question) using the search function.

I have Firefox auto save password on my browser. Sadly my pc was just stolen. I’ve deleted my Firefox account since. When the burglars turn on my pc and open Firefox will they have access to all my saved passwords or will all that be wiped when I deleted my original account?

Many thanks.

Hello.

backed up an Ubuntu repository version of Mozilla firefox that was working and then did a new install of firefox from Mozilla repository.

Migrated bookmarks. Followed instructions to migrate passwords - copy over key4.db and logins.json to new install - but the new install does not prompt for passwords and when I look at the settings there are no saved passwords showing.

What's the preferred method to move over auto logins and passwords?

Firefox Cookies Being Deleted

Since the most recent Firefox for Windows update, all of my Firefox browsers on my PCs have suddenly stopped saving my already logged in cookies for my major use websites, such as Facebook, Outlook, Amazon, and Netflix. For the past few years, these websites all stay logged in, even when I have Firefox set to delete cookies when the browser is closed, in part because I have these websites all carefully noted in the cookies and site data exceptions. As I said, I've never had problems for the past few years. But since the most recent update a few weeks ago, all of my websites log me out after 24 hrs. I even changed the main cookies settings to not delete any cookies when the browser is closed, but that makes no difference. Something has changed in the most recent Firefox that has disabled the managed exceptions to cookie deletion. I'd love some help on how to fix this, as changing settings does not seem to do it.

What can I do?

Firefox was updated to v82.0.2 yesterday, and since then I'm getting this error using Firefox to connect to my NetGear ReadyNAS admin page, which uses the original self-signed certificate. Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to anemone. Certificate key usage inadequate for attempted operation. This is the error:

Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

It doesn't even display the certificate or give me the option to "Continue anyway". I have to use Chrome to connect, which make me even more unhappy! With the previous version of FF, I could log into the admin page. I should have the option to accept that the connection isn't trusted, and continue to work. This NAS is in my home network behind a router and admin access is password controlled. That's safe enough for my purposes.

I am trying to browse websites through a proxy that intercepts the TLS connections and signs the certificates using a private CA certificate.

If I'm using only a root CA certificate, setting it on my proxy as well as in the OS's certificates store, I can browse the internet without any issues. The chains in this case would be: Root CA -> Server Certificates

However, my setup mandates that I use an intermediate CA on the proxy. The chains in this case would be: Root CA -> Intermediate CA -> Server Certificates If I add an intermediate CA to the proxy and the root CA to my OS's certificates store, I get the following error:

" 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

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

"

I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Windows 10.

How can I get more details on why it's failing? I've tried looking in the "Security" tools tab, but I see only this error ID.

Thank you, Cosmin

I have also always had the "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checked. What then explains the 1.0 GB of disk space?

I also had a problem on my Mac with Weather Channel and Weather Underground's Wundermap not loading on Firefox.

I launched Firefox in Safe Mode and the maps loaded with no problem. It turns out that the culprit preventing loading in my Firefox browser was the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension. Since disabling it, the maps are back for the first time in at least a year. I had searched for the answer to my issues for that entire period with no luck. Now I don't have to open another browser for a decent weather map.

I hope this will help some of my fellow Firefoxers.

The file logins.json apparently contains all saved logins that I had before the upgrade. However, none shows up when nedded. I've added some that where already there and a new entry was created, at the end of the array of entries. I could not see why (1) the already existing entry could not be used and (2) the new entry did not replace the old one.
