I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

Read all the articles the search brought up about firefox location issues with GMaps. None of them actually fix the firefox location issue. Says I am 100+ miles from where I am. GMaps on Chrome has my exact position. Setting a default location in MS Maps does nothing for Firefox location.

Windows Maps thinks I am in some podunk town I have never heard of, 104 miles due North of my location. Google Maps on Chrome has my location at about 50 feet from my location. Google Maps on Firefox seems to think the wrong windows location is where I am.

I used the links provided in one article. WhatsmyIP thinks I am 1500 miles away in Wasilla Alaska. ??? I am in Tillamook Oregon till tomorrow, then we move to near Portland. I have No Proxy set, nor do I have a VPN turned on.

I tried turning off Windows 10 Location and that helped a webapp running on Firefox know where I am so I was able to run the speedtest for the campground that populates the campground review site. Tried google maps on firefox again, still thinks I am 100+ miles north of my location. This is Just Weird.

The Developers here need to allow us to set a location manually in Firefox as a work around.

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.
