Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

Hi all. Seems like after updates, my computer slows down. It has become so recognizable, I know when the registry errors appear, as my computer performance falls off. I must use Reginout Registry cleaner, and CC Cleaner to restore performance. Along with any FireFox updates, my bookmarks have all been deleted many times over. I no longer attempt to re-install, as they continually get deleted, and so simple fix is available to me that I can understand. Thank you.

Hi,

this is my second post for today and again it concerns the Web-Console. The first screenshot is taken from the official Mozilla doku (doku_ff.jpg) and the second is what I see whwn opening the console on my page.

Contrary to the official docu the console does not show the concerned lines of the javascript errors - only the number it happens. ( line two screenshot - underlined red).

How can I find out what lines are concerned?

Very glad for help and wishing the best for the coming new year.

When I saw that I had no secondary email filled in I tried to add the one I usually use but the message said this account already exists.

So, I haven't used Firefox for a few years, since they broke most of the good long-time add-ons such as Speeddial & TabMixPlus.

I decided to give it another try, since I've been with it from the very beginning.

I was using FVD Speeddial on Opera until they broke speedials so they could put their ads on the front page. Then i switched to Chrome, and it was easy because it has FVD Speeddial as well. I'm really definitely no fan of cloud backups to random companies, but it seems Firefox has gone the same way, FVD Speeddial is the only decent option on Firefox now, and When trying to make that my home-page, it was a bit tricky/shady.

Anyway, Copying and Pasting from Chrome to Word is a breeze, everything is retained, colors, fonts, line spacing everything. I really thought that was just any browsers capability. I'm certain Firefox of old never had this problem, but when I tried to Copy and Paste from FireFox all the formatting was lost. This is a brand New Installation, with only FVD SpeedDial installed as the only add-on. I thought it was a problem with my Office at first. I couldn't believe Firefox broke everything.

Anyway, you guys are really just not doing well anymore, and I don't know why or wtf happened. it's almost like you just dgaf anymore. You say you're made for people, yet try your best to look like browsers who dgaf about people and only care about profits. You need to go beg forgiveness from all the add on developers you've screwed over.

Unfortunately I just still can't use Firefox in its current state.

Best of Luck getting it working

I've been visiting "9gag" since it came out as a site. From yesterday I can't get to it from my Firefox browser. I thought it was an issue with the site, but the App was fine. So I asked a bunch of friends if they have this issue, none of them had the same problem. What happens is that when I want to go into the site, it starts loading, but the page that I'm on or if I search it out from Google just blinks once and stays the same. The page never changes and nothing happens (no error, no loading icon, no other messages). Even from a private window it doesn't load up.

Upon starting Firefox. (64.0 (64-bit), Ubuntu 16.04), an Addon, which I thought I had -but is not listed in my addons-, "{link to malware removed} , asked to send notifications. I usually deny, but as I mentioned, I thought I had this add-on installed, so I accepted. It then opened these tabs:

     1.  https://win-big-bonus-here.com/?u=7pfk605&o=e93bvvr&t=1577914_proads_gambling.

I don't have this addon listed, either in my installed addons, or as an available addon. Where did it come from? And how do I get rid of it?
