Almost scammed by TeamView supposedly from Microsoft. Went into my computer to fix event logs.Wanted $109.00 now then asked if I had partial payment. So my dilemma is I don't know if what little security I have has been compromised. Not very computer literate. Installing Kaspersky today. My problem with Mozilla - tried to set master password but ok button doesn't work. Not on at all. What can I do? Thank you/

I work at a public library. And we have Firefox installed on all of our public computers. One of those computers is not forgetting a particular patron's login information for Yahoo Mail.

We've set our public computers for Firefox to clear out Cookies, Cache, Active Logins, Forms & Search History, Browsing & Download History, Saved Passwords AND Site Preferences when it closes. We use custom privacy settings, telling Firefox NOT to remember Browsing & Download history, as well as Form & Search History.

We've tried clearing ALL History, we've cleared all saved passwords. Nothing helps. Every time anyone goes to login for Yahoo on that computer, the other patron's login information is right there (the password is shown as dots, of course, but it's still there).

Anyone have any ideas on how to clear that information? Any help would be much appreciated.

I am trying to figure out why I cannot get my web page to prompt me to save my username and password. This is the information I got back when attempting to debug the password manager, but I dont know what it means:

The character encoding of the HTML document was not declared. The document will render with garbled text in some browser configurations if the document contains characters from outside the US-ASCII range. The character encoding of the page must be declared in the document or in the transfer protocol.

index.php Login Manager (content): onFormPassword for https://bigvinnys.quikorder.com/php/BIGVINNYS/m/index.php Login Manager: Counting logins matching host: https://bigvinnys.quikorder.com formSubmitURL: httpRealm: null PwMgr json: _searchLogins: returning 0 logins PwMgr json: _countLogins: counted logins: 0 Login Manager: Getting a list of all disabled hosts PwMgr json: _getAllDisabledHosts: returning 2 disabled hosts. Login Manager: Getting a list of all logins PwMgr json: _searchLogins: returning 0 logins PwMgr json: _getAllLogins: returning 0 logins.

Does this mean the password manager could not find a username/password field or something different?

I often use the hungarian OTP bank online bank service nly on my personal macbook. Nobody else uses my comp. Last time when I tried to log in, the username and the account number (these are login data) were not mine! These werent a fake numbers, these were someone else's login details. The password field is always empty and at first glance I did not realize this fake numbers, I just typed my password and the login was unsuccesfull. When I checked the account number I realized these were unknown numbers, not mine. How does it happen?

Hi. I recently had to reinstall my bootdrive and software. Since then Firefox will not save my passwords. I am using a Mac Pro OS 10.6.8, Firefox is 33.1.1. I thought it was firefox, so I tried Safari and Chrome - same problem. My preferences are set to "Remember passwords for sites". There are no exceptions listed. There are no saved passwords listed either. Under Privacy > History. "Remember history"

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you in advance.

Just finished turning off Firefox's auto updates on all of my computers. Because I had to learn to get in the habit of copying my Firefox profile about once a month. Why? Because I keep losing my settings! Mainly my passwords. This is now the 3rd update in a row that has dropped my passwords. 2nd time on that computer. (Windows 8.1) .

Please figure out why this occurs. (I can't be the only one). If it was always the same computer, I would point at it. But, the other 2 are Windows 7.

OR................ maybe...........instead of the profile being updated and possibly losing files, or over writing them. At the start of the update, say it makes a backup? Just in case v. 36,37,38,39,40,41,42.................cause the same issue. At least then if the passwords are the only issue, grab the 2 files and drop them back in the profile. done.


I hate sounding like a douche, just really freakin annoyed.

How do I turn on the "Remember Passwords for Sites" feature.
