In order for Firefox to remember my passwords, I have to go into the passwords options and check the box that states "ask to save my passwords".. it seems to "uncheck" every 24 hours or so. Why doesn't the check box stay "checked"?

I have two Firefox accounts. One of them was logged in and saving all my logins and passwords like normal, all was good... Then I did a Windows 10 upgrade, and these passwords are nowhere to be found on either of my accounts. I thought that these were saved to the account not the computer??? I'm hoping to get these back, because there were a lot... :( Thanks for any advice.

Hello, I just stumbled upon a very interesting "feature" (I'd say bug). If one goes to the history, and then clicks on "Forget about this site", one would assume that this site would be removed from the history. However, in addition to that happening, all these site's logins are also completely erased from Lockwise, so now I have to recover passwords on all sites where I did this :-( That is certainly not wanted. Is there a way to prevent this?

On my PC with Firefox, I'm trying to login to PNC online banking from this site: www.onlinebanking.pnc.com. If I manually enter the username and password, the Sign in button becomes active, and I can login successfully. But, for this site only, Firefox is not automatically filling the username and password. I have to tap the username field and then select the username from a drop down list of the synced logins. But after I do, the Sign in button remains grayed out and not clickable. For what it's worth, on other websites, Firefox autofills the username and password without me manually selecting it. And I don't have any problems logging in to those websites. But of course, I have none of these problems with Chrome.

As a side note, the Firefox Android browser won't even display a drop down list of synced logins when I tap the username field on www.onlinebanking.pnc.com. Nothing happens when I tap the field. And I did confirm that the login was already synced in the login storage. Again, this problem does not happen with the Chrome Android browser.

I have reinstalled Firefox and also ran it in safe mode, with no luck. How can I fix these problems? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit).

Hello

The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

https://prod-tp.sumo.mozit.cloud/en-US/questions/1271509#question-reply

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

Hello, I recently updated firefox to the latest version (91.0) and just noticed some logins are lost. I only noticed my google accounts passwords are missing but who knows if there are others. I mean I have encountered the problem a long time ago when all of my passwords were not imported and I had to manually retrieve them but now I cannot do that because the profile was indeed imported but somehow a few passwords were omitted... I tried to find some other older profile but there seems to be none but the curent default one Please help

On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

Placerville

Help! After many, many, happy, trouble-free years with FF (thanks folks) I just updated to FF 94.0. FF 94 is failing to use my saved logins, is silently failing to save new logins, seems to have forgotten my master password and won't let me set a new master password (which is probably a good thing!).

I see from searches here and elsewhere that the failure to migrate master password and login has been a serious issue, for a lot of people, for a long time, when upgrading FF. What I am still not clear on, despite reading many posts, is how to recover from this situation and seek your guidance on this.

In my profile I see:

  • key3.db (last updated by old version of FF)
  • key4.db (updated/created by new FF 94)
  • logins.json (Seems still full of all my login entries and salted passwords, not touched by FF 94)

Thanks

I tried to copying and pasting the email code in and it says wrong code try again. I have tried multiple times and it won't work. Then I tried forget password and tried to use a recovery code to reset my account in an attempt to restart it like a computer but that does not work. I cannot add 2AF to my account. Any help appreciated. It also seems to be recognizing a email that I no longer use. I have had this problem in the past but ignored.
