Saved Passwords No Longer Working for Multiple Websites

So I have had this problem for 2 weeks now. No issues over the past month working with the clients I am having issues with. I work for a marketing company, we have multiple clients, so I have saved the logins and passwords for the clients whose sites I work with the most. For the past few weeks a couple of my clients but, not all of my saved logins, for LinkedIn and MailChimp, in particular, give me an error message saying that the password isn't correct. I have checked with the clients, none of the passwords have been changed. I can log in to some of my saved clients on both sites, but can't for some reason with these two different clients.

Today I ran into the same issue with Instagram. I got the same "password does not match" error message and tried to log in with the handle rather than the saved email and the same password and it worked. Fine fix in the moment, however if all you use to log into a site is an email and a password, theres no work around for that. And it also doesn't really tell me what the issue is if the pw didn't work for the email but does for the handle (which in this case is exactly the same as the handle but with its @gmail.com)

I have deleted the saved passwords and emails for the problem clients, refreshed Firefox, turned the computer off/on. Nothing seems to work. I am at a loss as to what I need to do, I don't have any plugins on my browser, I use Firefox to save the passwords and the weirdest part is that its only 2 of my clients that are having issues. All of the other accounts I have saved for LinkedIn and MailChimp work fine, and my coworkers can log into my problem client accounts with the same passwords I am using.

What am I missing here, Internet.

The Firefox Color on my Mac that I've been enjoying for years now just suddenly quit on me. Every time I open the browser the colors I've created have to be reloaded. This is very irritating and not worth it every time you come online, especially since I've changed nothing that could have caused this like add another extension or delete cookies or anything - it just changed on me for no reason. https://color.firefox.com

I noticed there is something in the Firefox browser now named Lockwise which allows anyone using my computer to see all my passwords. This seems to be a major problem when it is supposed to be concerned with security. If my laptop is stolen they will have access to all my passwords now???? This does not look like a security feature to me. How do I get rid of or disable this function?

Thx

Passwords out of sync between FF 78 ESR and 82+

Hello,

I'm using Firefox for Mac on several machines. Some of them run 78.4.1 esr and others are on the newest FF 82. Passwords and history are set to sync. I created a new login item in 78.4.1 esr however I don't see it in FF 82 which is reflected in the logins count: it's 92 in FF 78.4.1 esr while it's 91 in FF 82. FF 78 ESR doesn't use system proxy but its own. In the "Manage Devices" section it shows all my devices with every FF counterpart and the correct date and time last active.

I can no longer stream CBS All Access. They are saying that I have some kind of ad blocking problem in my software therefore they cannot play movies with their ads. Firefox recently did a download on Nov. 18. It was 78.5 Oesr. Could that be the problem? Does 78.5 Oesr have some kind of an ad blocker? If so, how can I uninstall it?

I typed www.netflix.com in the address line and Netflix tried to come up. But I got a huge black page with an error message.

 Error Code F7702-1003 

At the top of the page in a thin yellow box it says

 The WidevineCdm plug-in has crashed. 

It suggested that I reload the page and the plug-in would reset itself. I did but it didn't.

How do I fix this problem?

I have a problem watching video on Netflix and HBO Max. My Firefox is up to date and I checked my settings. But do I really have an up to date Firefox? Is that what's causing me to not watching a show or movie? Or it's a crash that can be fixed?

What can I do? Or what can be done?

Last week (14 April 2021) I was able to watch videos on netflix and hulu. This week (21 April 2021), however, a yellow bar appears across the top of the page, saying, on the left-hand side: "The WidevineCdm plugin has crashed Learn more...", and, on the right-hand side, "[Reload page] [Submit a crash report]". Repeated submissions of crash reports, as well as repeated reloading of the page, results in exactly the same: same yellow bar, same inability to watch videos. Likewise, clicking on "Learn more" merely results in the widevine.com page, which states that the company does not service end-users. In addition, last week (14 April 2021), I purchased a video on youtube, and watched part of it. This week (21 April 2021), wanting to watch the rest of the video, all I encounter is: "Your browser can't play this video. Learn more." Clicking on "Learn more" yields "Your browser is up to date. You can use YouTube's latest features!" Repeat ad nauseam. So, it seems that, even though my browser is up-to-date, I am still unable to watch videos on either youtube, hulu, or netflix.

Before April 21st, 2021 I never had any issues with playing videos on Disney Plus, Netflix, etc. But since Widevine updated I cant play any videos without Widevine crashing. I reload the page (as it suggests) and it still wont work. I refreshed Firefox and that didn't work. I also tried to chat with Widevine but their page said "Widevine is a technology provider and we do not provide support to end users. Please contact your application or service provider for support on your particular issue."

Does anyone know what I can do to solve this problem? I really appreciate your help!

I'm on a Mac and the version Im using is 10.9.5. My firefox browser is 78.10.0esr (64 bit).

Amazon Music suddenly won't play/started crashing. A yellow bar comes up on top of the screen saying The Widevinecdm has crashed. It was running fine until yesterday and I can't think of any changes I've made. Or did I update Firefox, it's so automatic I don't remember. I'm running OS 10.9.5 on an older Macbook Pro with Firefox 78.10. Thanks.

I am sure if you've opened this thread, you are already familiar with the issue: Any time you try to stream Netflix or Prime, your Widevine plug-in you didn't even know you had crashes and you can't watch anything.

It appears to be a known bug, however for a long time now, no fixes.

Please help?
