There is a website with a large number of subdomains, all of which may send notifications. I trust all of them and want them to be able to send notifications. I've gone to a few of them and have been asked every time whether I want to allow notifications. There's many more, and I don't want to have to allow notifications for each one individually. How can I add all of them at once?

I just updated Firefox on an older laptop. Due to the age of the old version, I could not update Firefox but had to download and install the latest version (the old v was a couple of years old). I exported my bookmarks with no problem but could not find in the old version where to export my passwords. So I took screen shots of each of the password pages. When I installed the new version of FF, it found my bookmarks and imported them with no problem. It did not find and import my passwords (#@$#@!!). Sooooo... I spent all morning going to each page with saved logins, reentering my login info, and saving it. When I tried to go back to the pages, NO LOGIN INFORMATION WAS SAVED! WTFF?! I went into the password manager and there were NO PASSWORDS SAVED. I tried to enter the password info and it would not save them and instead gave me an error. Trying to create a new master password gave me an error.

WHAT do I need to do to get this... software... to save my frickin' login information and passwords??!!

NOT a happy camper right now! I have used FF for going on 20 years or so and am not a newbie or an amateur at this (which is why I screenshot all the password pages!).

OH, this is my SECOND attempt at asking support for help, the first time everything was lost when I tried to add a screen shot of the errors... Grrrrrrr...

Hello,

my problem is even if I saved my password, firefox doesn't autofill it and just prompt "show the saved IDs". It's only when I click on the message and it opens Firefox lockwise that the password I am waiting for appears on the website. It is quite convenient and makes me lose time as it happens on a website I use for work.

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for the poor english

Hi I recently started using 2FA on my account. Unfortunately i have forgotten the back up password so can't access my encrypted accounts.. I contacted Authy and they said; " the best approach is to contact each service you have a 2FA token for in Authy and ask them to disable 2FA on your account so that you may regain access. This is needed because Authy doesn't store your passwords on our servers as a security measure to protect your accounts. " So how do i disable in Firefox? I don't see an option in settings. Thank you

I went to clear my recent history, but it will not do so. Then I went to Menu, Settings, Privacy and Security, Cookies and Site Data, Clear Data. No change. I tried do a Refresh installation. No change. I exported my bookmarks to my hard drive, and uninstalled Firefox. I downloaded a fresh install of Firefox, and installed it. ALL MY BOOKMARKS AND SETTINGS ARE STILL THERE!! Still won't allow me to clear History. Whatever happened, happened less than 24 hours ago, going by the websites showing in Recent History. Can you advise me?

Today I received an email from a friend from Linked in. I clicked on their link to Linkedin.com and Firefox opened and just started spinning. I've been using Firefox for years and have never had any issues with getting a Linkedin email then clicking on the link to open Firefox which logs me in automatically to Linkedin. Today was the first time. I was on Linked in last week with no problems. I was able to access Linkedin using a "Private Window". This happened recently with another service I used when I tried to connect to their administrative page (I think it was a TV service). After contacting support we tried a private window and all worked fine.

I'm getting pretty tired of security shutting me down without any clue why, and I have to spend 15min to 1 hr troubleshooting everything in my computing world.  :-(

I couldn't find anywhere where I could "manage exceptions". I found a [Manage Exceptions] button in the "Browser Privacy" section next to "Enhanced Tracking Protection", but I wasn't able to enter anything there.

Whenever I try to delete my Firefox Account, it says that my password is incorrect. I've changed my password, copy-pasted it from the password change page and it still says my password is incorrect. How can I fix this? The password works fine for other Firefox things, just not the account deletion page.
