When I go to Truist.com, my recently merged bank, it remembers my userid OK, but fills in the password field with about 200 random ASCII characters. I tried to delete and re-establish the saved password, but Firefox either gets messes it up or more likely the web site messes it up. The result is that the true saved password in lost and the ASCII rubbish re-appears.

Work-around is to not let Firefox save the password for this site. It works A-OK with the other 150 or so passwords. Check out the screen shot attached.

Luv Firefox, even donate once in a while.

Thank you,

There are extensions that I am not using 99% of the time or use them at one website.

There a two options:

  • Make UX more friendly: add button to list an extensions with checklist to disable OR add "Disable extension" option inside menu between "Manage extension" and "Remove extension" (by right mouse click at extension icon at Toolbar.
  • Be cool if Mozilla Team will develop mechanism to switch between extension modes. As example I create my default exts mode (ublock, firefox notes, multi-account containers), but also time by time I save webpages by SingleFile extension, also I use proxy extensions so I create list for it. Lists may be as additional (default + proxy) as independent from scratch (proxy only).

Why? Privacy by isolation processes in the browser.

Almost 4-5 months I can't download anything with suspicious code inside (repack or keygen, or test compiled file, 4ex. from Github) cause FF defense blocks it every time even when it's disabled! And even when I manually allow to download this zipped file, I get an error message of damaged archive file format! FF crashes and damages my files!!! (Don't try to point on my other defense software - I don't use it and everything is disabled, and other browsers works good). This is very important bug for me, so I already think to change and migrate to Opera or another browser.

Regarding allowed permissions: I have had trouble with some websites that abuse the 5 limit of forwarding before you can temporarily disable more forwarding. In fact they are abusive sites that shout out for being able to permanently disable forwarding. Yet these sites offer information that is hard to find else where. Why on earth isn't it an option for a setting that allows the user to decide how many times a site is allowed to forward to other sites that spam, or even attack users?? I have used Firefox for many years, but I have to say how disappointed I am over this lack of protection options. A PERMISSIVE PROTECTION IS NO PROTECTION AT ALL. Please update Firefox to give users this choice? Presently in spite of my loyalty, and reliance on Mozilla Firefox I am looking for alternatives. So far my search has been fruitless. Please help with this before I find that alternative?
