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?

When I open a website -- say CNN.com for example -- I see ads on the home page, then when I click on a link to go to an article I see a bunch of ads all over the place.

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?

In JavaScript I did addEventListener('storage', ...), and it's working fine as long as I use localStorage.setItem(), .removeItem(), or .clear(). However, when I use the "Clear Data..." button under "Settings | Privacy and Security" it seems the event does not fire. I noticed that in Chrome the corresponding settings option to clear all data does fire the storage listener, and this is the behavior I'm looking for.

Thanks.

Trying to use ProctorU with Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 11 Home, and I am getting the following message : "Monitor Count : You may only use 1 monitor during your exam. Your monitor count could not be found". I searched for possible fixes, and someone mentioned removing fingerprinters, and possibly also remove cookies and tracking content from Firefox enforcement. I removed all 3 and that did not help. I also tried clearing cookies and site data and also cached web content, this did not help. Is there some other setting in Firefox that might be preventing the detection of the monitor count? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?
