Hello,

My privacy settings never actually save. More specifically, the autofill username/password settings. Every day I have to go back and check the box for autofill. I would like this setting to just remain so I don't have to do this every day. My Firefox is up to date.

Where do I locate the list of saved passwords in Firefox? The current password manager (Firelock) only allows me to remove passwords one at a time.

I have over 1000 passwords on my machine 90% of them are not mine.

So please tell me where the file for saved password is om my machine so I can either delete the list completely, and start it again, or so that I can edit it with a text Editor.

This is not a Chrome machine.

While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.

Better fix for question mark boxes in Firefox ?

This fixed my problem with question mark boxes (which I have seen, then not seen, then seen again over versions of FF on a Mac): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178462

But the answer is 3 years old and nearly 30 FF versions ago, and furthermore requires lowering security. Is there a newer, better solution for fixing the problem with seeing question mark boxes instead of glyphs for certain fonts? (And one that doesn't require me to constantly toggle "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" in Preferences, which only works sometimes anyway.)

I tried to login to a site where I had forgotten a password. I got a firefox message offering help. I didn't know about the logins and passwords page. It popped up with hundreds of usernames and passwords from my wife. She doesn't use this computer. She doesn't use firefox. She did use it a few years ago. I just spent over an hour deleting her stuff. She was shocked that I had access to her paypal login and password etc.

Anybody help how I got this data? How are you supposed to protect yourself?

Why is it difficult to find the logout?

How do I disable Firefox showing usernames in login boxes? (not the PW autofill)

When login credentials for a site are stored, firefox shows the associated usernames as drop-down in the edit field of a site login.

Since this shows *all* accounts that it knows for that site, I'd like to turn that off. I'd like to keep the auto-fill of passwords, once I've manually entered the username (as it was in the past).

I've only found how to deactivate the whole auto-fill for both: username and passwords.

Any way to get the old (=more discrete) behavior back?


Thanks!

I have run across a few websites that result in "Secure Connection Failed" when I try to go to them. The last site on which this happened is the following. Using the shorter URL "https://e.ab.advancedbionutritionals.com" also shows the problem.

https://e.ab.advancedbionutritionals.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

What I see on the error message page is this:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to e.ab.advancedbionutritionals.com. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I can get to this site using other browsers like Chrome and Safari. What bothers me here is the text "Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s)". This makes me believe that Firefox is not supporting an encryption algorithm, which other browsers do. The question is: why does Firefox not support the same set of encryption algorithms, which other browsers do?
