How do I make adjustments in PASSWORD MGR on sites that require that I update my password frequently?

Some websites (banks, pharmacies, etc) require periodic and frequent updates of passwords for security reasons. If a password is stored in Password Manager and such an occasion arises, how is this handled? For example, when this password is changed on the bank from simonsays1 to simonsays2 does this affect the password for ALL accounts using the simonsays1 or will that change the account only for the bank while leaving all other accounts the same at simonsays1 ? As you can imagine, this would make Password Manager not as convenient as it might seem. Or, is it possible to include the passwords that never change in Password Manager and exclude those-like the one in this example-that will change frequently? Thank you.

My Firefox has been crashing a lot in the last few days. Just in the past hour it crashed 3 times already.

I also notice that Firefox is using a lot of RAM, and my computer asks me to close FF the whole time.

I hope this can be solved, so I can keep using Firefox. I don't want to switch to another browser. Thank you!

OS: Windows 8.1 (64 bit) x64 AMD E-300 Processor

Firefox 25.0.1

I just got a new laptop and have discovered this issue: When I try to click links on some sites to open a lightbox or popup (usually for login boxes or photo slideshows) nothing happens. Absolutely nothing, no error message, no loading screen, no "busy" or "working" animations, no redirect. I've tried the same pages in the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Chrome and they work correctly. These sites work on my old laptop with the same version of Firefox and Vista SP2 32 bit and my work computer with Windows 7 64 bit.

I've tried disabling Add-Ons one by one and as a group, didn't make a difference. I've cleared the cache and cookies. I've turned by firewall and antivirus/antispyware/antimalware programs on and off.

Sites with a known issue: "View larger images" on Zillow.com, Login on Moviepilot.com, Login on doubletakedeals.com. I can't remember any others at the moment.

Windows File History backs up certain folders ( Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, and Desktop )to a Network Drive. How do I get Firefox to automatically backup Bookmarks, e.g. when I exit FF, into one of these folders e.g. 'Documents'? So that it is automatically backed up in one place in the event my PC drive crashes.

I spent some time Googling this very simple question and got many confusing and unrelated results!!

I assume there must be a configuration issue. I have another computer with the same OS of Windows 8.1. The other computer works well without this issue, so I copied its profile folder to the problem computer, and the problem remains. Disabling all add-ons did not correct my issue.

Also, I used to be able to go onto a site do a cut-and-paste, or copy-and-paste to put into my document.

Now I cannot do either. Can you please give me some advice as this is totally frustrating.

I knew from years ago that you could have multiple profiles in Firefox, and since Chrome is really choking handling games like Farmville 2 lately (not sure why, but Firefox is Zynga's recommended browser anyway), I decided to set up profiles and profile shortcuts. But there's a BIG problem. With Chrome, when I set up shortcuts to profiles, which Chrome lets you do with one click, by the way, if I have one profile already open, I can open windows in all the separate profiles just by using their shortcuts. In Firefox, I cannot. If I have one profile open, the other shortcuts merely open windows in the same profile already open. This is not acceptable. It's not like the profiles are in the same directory. They're in separate directories and there should be no issue opening two or more profiles at the same time.
