Firefox inserts a blank space in fron of stored User ID's for login fields. This drives me nuts. How do I configure Firefox to NOT insert the blank space?

I try to use Forefox to log into specific accounts and despite the fact that I configure the User ID correctly when I store it, Firefox always automatically inserts a blank space into the User ID field. I then get an error and have to correct the User ID. What is the point of storing the User ID if I have to manually correct it anyway?

Please tell me how to configure the browser to behave normally.

Thanks.

My husband and i were trying to get the saved information changed for one of his work websites. We removed the fill login information thinking that we'd be able to re-enter it, or be prompted to re-save it. Firefox never prompted us to save the username and password again. We have tried everything we could on our side, options, preferences, etc..... to try and get it to save again and nothing has worked. How can we get firefox to save the username and password again for this specific site?

I know that my saved passwords are still available - because when I go onto sites I always use, on this browser, it logs me in.

However if I go to Options>Privacy & Security> Saved logins it only shows the "firefox account credentials" (which I had never noticed before) and 1 password I updated today

I have AVAST running on my computer in passive mode; I simply have not bothered to remove it, fearing screwing something up. Now, AVAST has stripped all my saved passwords from FIREFOX. Can I load these back into Firefox from my renegade AVAST?

my 4 paypal log ins no longer appear as drop down when trying to log into paypal. Once I enter the paypal user name i want to use the passwords do appear.

also - I use a site named hhparts.com . The user name shows along with other user names which are not saved for that site and when I click on the user name no password appears in the drop down although it is on my saved log in list.

Thanks -Allan

I've got Mozilla-Plugins like LastPass and NordVpn, where I can enter my username or my email account at first, but each time I try to switch to the next box , where I should be able to enter my Password, either by cursor or tab the Plugin window closes instantly.

I have already tried it with every other plugin disabled to pinpoint if it's maybe a problem another plugin causes, but that's not it.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04 LTS

So every idea is appreciated!

It's saved to my firefox, I can go to my password lists and see them, but it won't fill it in once I'm on the sites. (and yes, I am visiting the correct website not a variation of the site like gmail.com and not gmail.ca

I am considering switching from chrome to firefox. While trying to import my passwords i wont get them all.

Using the import feature inside Firefox I will get about 70% of my usernames and passwords from chrome.

Why it wont import the rest makes absolutely no sense at all.

Firefox gives no option to import from a CSV or anything else but that one button.

I get the impression the whole feature is not tested properly, If Firefox wants people to switch browser this just has to work flawlessly.

Got recently a notification that I must update Firefox esr 52.9.02 to new 60.x esr version. Problem is, after the upgrade only 5 of the many passwords were actually saved - rest were not showing up. Tried fiddling with the logins.json and key3.db (move them to replace the new ones) no help. What´s going on? How can I get the software to show all stored passwords? Oddly the size of the new logins.json implied they were in the file, but would not show up. Downgraded and - no problems, they work.
