I trust Firefox to keep my paswords safe without a lot of hassle. Suddenly I am being asked to "verify my identity" before I can view my password. I don't have time for this. It clearly says in the Logins and Passwords tab that my identity is sgillies12@gmail.com. Then it refuses to give me the password because it says that's NOT my identify.

PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. I need to do some work. thank you.

I think my Firefox updated, and now there is a feature where any "insecure" sites now have all the media blocked on it. When I click "Disable protection for now," it does nothing and I have no way to unblock any of it. I am literally just trying to read the TF2 comics, which I know are on a safe website (and even if they weren't, I have antivirus software that protects my computer just fine), but because of this "mixed content" block I literally can't see anything but a white page. I've searched settings for a way to permanently disable this protection, but I haven't found anything.

I'm have Private Browsing set to delete all cookies and data after closing a session but I would like to allow certain website to keep certain cookies and keep my session open.

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.

Hello, Kind of like the title says, every time I close out Firefox, the "Logins and Passwords" option "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" unchecks itself, and does not autofill or remember passwords on the next browsing session unless you go back and check the box each time. I included the troubleshooting text below. Thanks in advance for your help! Matt

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

I normally use the setting - Privacy & Security - History - Never remember history

but sometime I need to store my passwords in some website so I reactivate history.

The huge problem I have is I can't access internet after reactivating history: after typing the web address, press enter and I wait forever the page to load.

If I deactivate the history again, no problem everything works.

In other words I am locked out in no history mode.

It is reproducible on my Laptop and Desktop PC, both Windows 10 x64 Pro. Reinstalling does not help.

Huge Bug in my eyes: browser do not connect to internet anymore.

I set up two Windows accounts on my Windows 10 and synced the passwords and settings in only one account. To my surprise, when I login in the second account, every login and password was there without the master password. This means that any one using that account can see my password.

I think this is a really serious security hole and Firefox should fix it as soon as possible.

Under security FF will not show me pw's to other sites that were previously saved. I get a box with my photo and name and it asks for the pw. I yesterday changed it successfully but when using the new pw, it says it's incorrect. I need to know pw's when I need it and it no longer allows me access and doesn't recognize me. Can not continue to be locked out of my own account/browser/computer. Never happened like this before as it always seemed to know it was me. This latest version is not working the same. How can I fix this?
