When changing the primary password I would expect the logins.json file being rewritten with new pairs of encryptedUsername and encryptedPassword (now encrypted based on a new primary password). But this is obviously not the case. But maybe I just didn't understand the way this works?

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

On major updates to Firefox you sometimes get a one time message about some new feature, etc. When you respond it does not come up again. I do not want to get any one time messages after an update. Is there some option besides 'kiosk' mode to accomplish this?

Thank you

Please let me know what I should be doing other than tightening linked in which has no crucial information anyway. My e-mail will get back on e-vite because someone will send me an invitation. The other places should not have any information on me since I've never visited, don't know what they are.

Firefox Passwords using Browser Firefox Lockwise

Hi,

I receive your emails on security (How to avoid wire fraud, spot spyware, smash spam and more) and my concern is holding all my passwords in Firefox Lockwise on my Windows devices which are synched. If someone or some process gains access to one of my PC's they would also I presume gain access to all my passwords. Is this true? If so, can I implement password access to my Firefox Lockwise passwords on Windows machines?

Thanks for your thoughts and hopefully reply.

best regards, Terry

I have had a strange thing happening : - on my account, it stated a connexion from a OnePlus A6003 yesterday - I do not have such a phone, I do have however a OnePlus GM1913 - When I disconnected the A6003, it did kick me out of GM1913 - When I reconnected the GM1913, it listed it correctly

What could be the cause of this?

Hi! I have the strictest anti-tracking protection enabled and have one question: Firefox prevents cross-site cookies by default, but if I install Firefox Containers, does that mean that those cross-site cookies will be allowed inside that container, even if they're not when browsing outside of any container? My concern is that, if that happened, using Firefox containers would actually diminish privacy instead of increasing it (for example, Facebook would be able to use Instagram cookies because they're in the same container, even though it wouldn't if I hadn't installed Containers). Thanks a lot! Love the Firefox community <3

I would like to set up Firefox like it worked 5 years ago where I just click on a link and get logged in automatically.

I have stored URLs, IDs and PWs into Firefox's master password area. But apparently, my cookie/security settings/tracking settings are not right because when I click on a link, I don't get logged in automatically.

What settings should I use to get logged in automatically if my URL/ID/PW are in Firefox's Primary Password?

(Ultimately, I would like to use Norton's Password Vault and Firefox, but I think that might be compatible for an auto login?)

Thanks. Rick.

Any help that anyone can provide is appreciated beyond expression. Thank you in advance.
