on the latest firefox releases (from more than 4/5 months) on a lot of websites including the most popular ones (like facebook, or forums) firefox doesn't ask anymore to remember password.

in security setting "ask to store password" is correctly selected, i tried to open firefox in maintenance mode but no success.

I always have to open sites with Chrome, save passwords there then import to firefox. It is really frustrating...after more than 10 years in firefox is maybe time to move on?

no password exporter working anymore, now that issue makes me on the way to abandon firefox.

I migrated my firefox profile from windows to linux. When I first opened firefox, no prompt appears for the master password (when it is first needed). When I go to the preferences page, it shows that I don't have a master password set.

When I try to set a password equal to the one that is used for the in the logins.json passwords, it mentions "Unable to change master password". It doesn't matter the password I enter. I always answers the same "Unable to change master password"

I already tried making a different profile and then copying just the password db and json files. I was able to access my passwords just fine.

How can I get the passwords working with my firefox profile?

Hi, Bug report, as stated above.

Upon sign in attempt to citibank, the login page is simply re-displayed, and login doesn't happen. Other commonly used web pages continue to work normally. Firefox/Citibank used to work until about a week ago, the web page does work with Safari.

Thanks much for making Firefox the greatest web browser ever, Jack

How to adjust order in which Firefox autofills web addresses from bookmarks?

I have a lot of bookmarks, and keep them pretty well organized in the bookmarks folders, but still, I'm often several directories deep to get what I want, and I prefer to just type in and let autofill finish for my most-used but not quite 'toolbar-direct' worthy sites. And I want to be able to control what Firefox puts on top when I start typing something in the address bar and it starts autofilling addresses--and I want this to work the same when I am in Firefox on my laptop and Firefox on my iPhone (I do have FF sync set up across devices).

For example, I want to be able to type 'tea' and have the first thing that FF offers me be Teaforum.org, my current preferred site, and not Teachat.com, which I rarely visit anymore. I can change my description of the site--putting zz's in front of 'Teachat' so zzTeachat alphabetizes below 'aaTeaForum' but that doesn't change the order in which FF presents things to me.

Also annoying is that what I type on the laptop does not bring things up the same way on the laptop and the phone. I have one item labeled 'News of topic Y' and typing in 'News' offers that first as autofill on the laptop, but the phone only goes to that site when I type some letters in the order of the URL (e.g., 'topic y') and it always offers to autofill with a web site I've removed from my bookmarks and cleared from my history FIRST--e.g., it offers 'topic.com' above 'news of topic Y', and sometimes I click too fast and have to start over.

A third similar issue: I have bookmarked a specific page on a website, and FF always offers the non-bookmarked primary address, e.g., I want to go to foreignsite.com/en, which I have bookmarked, and FF offers first 'foreignsite.com' which needs a pause for it to load and another click to get to the English-language version of the site.

These are very subtle and minor annoyances, but I'd really love to know how FF prioritizes what it puts first, and if there is any way to change it, to make sure it ALWAYS puts bookmarks above search results, and to be able to match what I type and what appears across devices (to save aging brain that confusion), and to control the order of my bookmarks' appearance when they have similar URLs and similar titles (because that's what happens when you have a lot of them built up over time).

I keep my FF on beta update channel on my Macs, which are operating on High Sierra (won't be switching to Mojave right away); and iPhone 5S is on iOS 12 with FF 13.2.

This problem just happen lately, starting around one week ago I think. When I try to paste some URL from google sheet or sometimes I click some link to open in new tab, the webpage will load a blank white page, and the page tab will show the "http://www.example.com" (with quotation mark) instead of the page title. And I need to refresh once again, sometimes two.. for the page to load correctly

Any suggestion to fix this?

This is similar to reported roblem with facebook pages but my facebook pages don't freeze. This started a couple of updates (latest beta) ago and can be worked around by using task manager ot close the plugin container task until a page is changed in the problem website. Thus this is very annoying and persistant.

I have a rather strange problem with deleting cookies in firefox i think.

Via privacy settings>delete firefox does nothing, so i searched for some help and found that eventually my cookies.sqlite file might be corrupt or broken so i deleted it. But on the next start of firefox ALL of the cookies are back. I then let windows search for any *cookies.sqlite* file and deleted them again. No change, Firefox again has ALL cookies in store, as if there is some backup file or something.

Am i just missing something there? What i want is clearing all cookies, but without loosing my other data, such as saved logins etc.

Hope there is someone who can help me.

Thanks!

I'm looking for advice on the Tree Tab addon. I'm getting no response from the developer.

First, the tab sequence in the tree tab menu has no relationship to the tab order on my tab bar. It's totally mixed up. Makes no sense to me. I want the tree tab tab order to mirror the tab tar.

Secondly, I really just basically want want to use tree tabs menu without the family/grouping action. Like all tabs helper for example.

If theses things can't be done, maybe someone could suggest an alternative addon.

thanks
