After I sign out of Firefox I can still access lockwise login history by clicking on Lockwise down in the Products section. It comes up and suggests I open in Firefox/logins from the drop down menu and when I click on the logins section timewise shows all my logins and all corresponding Passwords. Seems to me that likewise should be password protected.

I am not able to post pictures in Facebook comments using Firefox on my laptop. I am posting this here rather than in FB because I *am* able to post using Internet Explorer. When I click on the camera icon within the comment area nothing happens. In IE, doing the same opens up the ususal window to select the file I want to upload. Also, on my LG Android phone I can add photos to comments. Is there some setting in Firefox that could be the cause?

Hi, are the files key4.dab logins.json

generated on a 64bit Firefox compatible with a 32 bit version?

The reason is that in the 32 bit one all my "user & PW" data .... abruptly vanished. So I wished to use the existing data to restore the configuration.

Both PC are running LINUX: - 64bit has Linux Mint - 32 bit has Kubuntu

Thanks in advance for your time! Alberto

"Clear Data", "Forget the Last 24hrs", and closing Firefox do not remove 160KB. This is a new problem.

I'm using Firefox 77.0.1

In earlier versions of Firefox, the password needed for a local log-on to an ip address was auto filled. Unfortunately with the latest version it needs me to manually enter the user name and password every time.

I've tried editing the Firefox about:config where a previous suggestion was to change the "signon.autofillForms.http" to "True", the local web address in question is http://172.20.10.9 and may therefore be regarded as insecure.

Microsoft Edge has no issue with saving and using the user name and password.

Thanks

My financial firm rep said they use Glance Technologies (aka Perk Labs) for screen sharing with their client devices. However, the screen sharing could not be made to work today with the rep on the phone, even though I unchecked the button in my Firefox Privacy settings for blocking popups. I am now wondering if some other Privacy settings in Firefox are known to create issues with Glance Technologies screen sharing. It would also be interesting to find out more generally about Firefox settings and screen sharing using other screen sharing technology firms.

In Firefox>Privacy and Security, there are two very similar looking settings regarding routine cookie destruction:

Cookies and Site Data>check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Manage Permissions [A site list with Block, Allow, Allow for Session]

History>Firefox will Use custom settings for History>Clear history when Firefox closes. Settings: check Cookies

My current understanding is that Cookies and Site Data potentially provides exclusions from the cookie carnage, whereas the History setting per above would delete all cookies. Is this correct as far as it goes? What I keep wondering is why the topic of cookie destruction when closing cannot be handled in one area of the Settings layout, instead of in two different areas.
