Hi, I use duckduckgo as my search engine and I have set the start page as that as well. This is gonna be tricky to explain so bear with me. When the start/home page comes up I have to press the "plus" to open a new tap and on that page I´ve got all the most visited pages. How can I change it so that is the first page I see when I start firefox?

Very grateful for any help.

Hello,

I have three add-ons and none of them are appearing in the tool bar or working. They are enabled and I am not browsing in private or safe mode. Likewise, when I go to the customize page, none of my add-ons' logos appear for me to move.

I have attempted uninstalling/reinstalling the add-ons, but to no avail. There is room on the toolbar. They have been on the toolbar before with previous Firefox versions. I have made sure that Firefox is updated as are the add-ons in question.

Any help would be appreciated.

I accidentally entered a password in the login field. When asked by the browser about saving the password, he answered in the negative. I was surprised when the next time I entered the site, I saw two login options ([LOGIN]; and [PASSWORD]) in the dropdown menu. [LOGIN] matched my login. [PASSWORD] matched my password. Both logins are without a password. There is no stored data in lockwise for this site. If you save a random password for an unnecessary login ([PASSWORD]-[1111]), then it will be displayed in lockwise. Removing an account from lockwise removes the password, but does not affect the login. The only solution I found was to change the lockwise login. ([PASSWORD]-[1111] -> [1]-[111]), But after deleting this account, the login [PASSWORD] is returned to the drop-down menu.

Since a few days I noticed on two different windows 10 PCs that firefox keeps signin out of websites (yahoo, linkedin etc), and this happens semi-randomly but sometimes more than once per day. My security settings never changed, I did configure firefox to delete history when closing, but preserving cookies and active logins. I also tried to add those websites to trusted sites (in the tracking menu, the shield to the left of the url). Any advice?
