I sign in to this support forum, I am not being asked for my password. Firefox already knows my E-mail address. The screen shots attached will show what I am talking about. I click on sign in when I see the E-mail address, I am signed in. How can I get Firefox to ask for the password?

Yahoo intruded and functions as default search, even though Google has been and is still designated as default in the settings. I removed Yahoo from the list of 1-click browsers, but that didn't affect its unwanted function as default search. This began out of the blue several days ago, and I have no idea how. I dislike Yahoo in general and have not been on that site. I'm getting really frustrated!

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

Cannot clear an item from my search history, so it gets suggested even after clearing my data

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Greetings,

I would like to get straight to the point: I want to keep myself logged in on some sites while mantaining my settings. I want Firefox to delete my browsing history and delete all cookies and other techy stuff (apart from that what is needed in order to keep me logged in on sites like Microsoft or Learn Digital with Google) It is important for me to get my history deleted and to enjoy the feeling of launching a fresh web browser whenever I reopen my Firefox. However, looking for my phone just to log in onto certain services that use two step verification is quite annoying so I want to stay logged in there.

Have a nice day!

I think I may be set to private browsing, because websites aren't remembering my computer, and I have to have codes texted every time I try to log in. Cookies are on, but it's still happening, and it's maddening, as I'm a freelance bookkeeper and have to be able to login to multiple sites, and have to coordinate with the client every time I'm forced to get a new code.

Please help, this is negatively impacting my work.

To start off I don't have a problem with auto logins, I rather not use a primary password on my device. But at the same time i would like the option to set a password to protect my logins and password from being easy accessible. So in other words a option password where no one can change or view my Firefox logins. The reason for this is so that if someone is using my laptop they can't view what my password is but can use my auto login without me to go to netflix, pay a bill, etc.

The chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul link does not seem to work for me to reset my master password. I believe I just have the normal version of Firefox, but whenever I paste in the link, it keeps loading forever and when I press enter again, it says file not found. How can I reset my password with this issue?

Every time I open firefox I am asked to enter the primary password for firefox Mozilla.

I hit cancel and everything seems to work fine. Why is this showing up? There is not an option to change the pw.

I use keeper as a pw manager. There isn't a mozilla firefox listed.

Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks,

Marty

Hi, I used to use Firefox for quite some time. Recently I migrated from Edge to Firefox again. I logged in My Google, Yandex and other websites using Firefox to remember the information. But After every session (closing firefox and reopening), I have to log in once again repeatedly! Firefox remembers the password and username but does not stay logged in. I found a solution by NOT logging in my Firefox account on the corner of the browser. But I'd very much like to keep logged in my Browser Firefox main account and other website accounts as well. Thank you very much for reading, Stay safe, have a great day.

I am set to delete cookies when I close. I have filled in countless times the privacy settings on Google. Every time I load firefox browser up comes "before you continue" Google settings panel. Sometimes I just go by it but whatever I do when I open additional tabs it appears. Now it tries to appear but is blank and the rotating blue circle is the only thing I can get, locked, it stops me from continuing. Any ideas? That still let me clear cookies. Answers appreciated Baz
