I was able to make an export May 2022. I had to choose "Another user" but then it went fine. I have no idea why my windows login doesn't work. But now - and this i my point - the username and password I gave in May no longer works. So I cannot export the data.

Any help on that?

I've been having trouble with the Primary Password on Firefox for years. Sometimes it didn't ask me for it at all, sometimes randomly after half an hour and now since a year I've been having to type it in three times in total, before Firefox let's me do my thing. What's really weird: The second time the pop-up comes up there are already some characters in the password field and I have to delete them to start typing my Primary Password anew. But lately it always takes three times of typing in the password, until the pop up doesn't come up again. That's stealing a lot of my time and I have no idea what's the reason or what's causing it.

Can anybody help out?

Due to organizational requirements, I need to have Firefox ask for my primary password every time I want to log in to a site using a stored password, as opposed to having it ask once in a while. Changing the value of signon.masterPasswordReprompt.timeout_ms to a small value does not appear to have the desired effect.

Hello. My Windows 10 suddenly crashed, so I reinstalled on a new hard drive, with the latest version of Firefox. My old Firefox, was completely up to date but still used the Key3.db file for my saved logins, and it will not work with the newest version. I tried creating a new profile and pasting the logins.json and key3.db files, as suggested by an old Firefox KB article, but that doesn't work any more. Is there any way for me to get the saved logins out of the older JSON file with the Key3 file? I desperately need help with this, and would appreciate any that someone could give.

Regards, Brian Mercer.

About 3 months (or so!) ago, Firefox stopped saving the setting:

Logins and Passwords

   Ask to save logins and passwords

I set it for it to always ask, if I don't, any saved passwords won't load when signing into a site. Now, each day, or anytime I close Firefox, I have to click on Settings and click inside the box. Once I do that, the passwords will load for me.

I have untinstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Any suggestions or do you know if anyone else has experienced this issue?

After updating Firefox this morning on my main PC, I noticed that it didn't ask for my primary password.

I then noticed that it wasn't filling in passwords automatically.

My primary password has disappeared as well as my stored passwords. When I try to set a primary password it tells me that it can't change the password.

I tried creating a new profile and that didn't fix it.

I can use firefox on other devices and all the information is there. But I can't get my passwords on my primary PC.

How do I fix this?

i'm running Firefox 105.0.1 (64-bit) on a Win 11 PC.

Hi! A vendor of a solution we use suggested unchecking the "Cookies" and "Tracking content" under "Privacy & Security" settings in the "Custom" section to help with an issue encountered using their services. Those settings look like global settings that would affect all the websites visited, not just the vendors'. Is that correct? What are the implications here? Would this mean giving up Firefox protections?
