I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

How can I export my passwords from firefox sync (not regular firefox) to my computer? This is on quantum

I had lost my passwords, and had all my bookmarks on both firefox quantum, and with developer edition. Even though I think i was signed into sync, I could not get my information back. I had done no changes to my computer, and it appears this happened from an update. After searching online, I was able to get my passwords to show synch using developer edition. I am afraid to keep the passwords only using sync, as I am thinking this may happen again... I would like to have a backup file that works, so I can setup an older firefox for events in the future, with my passwords. Please let me know how to export the passwords, or bring back an option for export. If this is not possible, I may not use firefox anymore... I have been using firefox for years, and always have recommended to other people. However, I like the original firefox the best. I do not need a browser which reminds me of chrome or windows. Thank you

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!

Entry of password characters seems to work but login deemd incorrect, IE11 works fine eg Capita pension and Bank of Ireland sites- always.

Two sites: UK Teachers Pension (Capita) and Bank Of Ireland (other sites fine), ask for entry of particular characters from password/PIN (eg 3rd, 5th, 7th) into boxes on log-in page. Entry seems to go fine but on submission: 'incorrect...try again...2 tries remaining'. Using IE11 works fine.

Bank of Ireland was getting reports of this last year but the issue persists, the pension site was ok last year but not now.

Win 7-32 bit, with up to date FF does this as does win 7-64 bit machine with FF 52.6.0 ESR.

uMatrix is installed but disabling filtering makes no difference: FF fails with these sites IE11 works. Has FF deprecated something (Java?) that some sites still use?

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?

When I go into Firefox settings and click on Saved Logins, it takes several minutes for the window to open up. Afterwards, the searches are relatively fast. Deleting an item likewise takes minutes. I believe this also affects the auto-fill of passwords when Firefox first starts up.. It does not auto-fill at first.

Is there any way to optimize the saved logins database? PS: This is under Fedora Linux. Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit)

How do I stop Firefox from autocompleting usernames on just one site?

Firefox keeps autocompleting and has a drop down for my username for a website. I do not have the password/username saved.

I found this article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Deleting_autocomplete_entries I followed the directions. It worked, no more drop down. However, after I signed into the site and back out, the drop down came back.

I don't mind Firefox autocompleting for most websites, but for sensitive websites, like online banking, how can I get it to NEVER autocomplete or create a drop down? Again, I don't have the username/password saved, and I don't necessarily want to disable to feature for every website.

Thank you!

I've been using Firefox Quantum for over a month now on Ubuntu 18.04. However, the extensions Grammarly and LastPass which I need the most do not work as expected. LastPass does not automatically sign in nor does the overlay interface work. I have to right-click on the extension button everytime and launch lastpass in a separate window to Sign in. Nor do I get a prompt to save the password when I create a user account on a website.

Next, Grammarly fails to work - and when it works, Firefox notifies that this extension is causing slowdowns, why?

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
