Firefox refusing Primary Password

Today, after browsing about whether or not I should continue using Firefox as my password manager, I decided to mitigate the most important security flaw in browser based password managers, by setting up a Primary Password. I choose to use an easy to remember 8 word long passphrase as my Primary Password. I noted down the passphrase in my diary. Due to problem while loading YouTube, I decided to restart Firefox by going to about:profiles and selecting "restart normally". This issue where Firefox starts to struggle connecting to internet is a relatively common occurrence on my Firefox install, and restarting Firefox fixes the issue. When Firefox restarted, I was prompted to enter the primary password. I confidently entered my passphrase, but it was rejected. I tried to typing to it more carefully several times. I got my diary and checked it to make sure I was entering the passphrase correctly. Following troubleshooting steps on a similar thread, I restarted firefox, no luck. I than rebooted my computer, issue persisted. I decided to restart Firefox with extensions disabled, and also in troubleshooting mode. Firefox still rejects my passphrase. I have my Firefox account synchronized with two Android phones. Will reinstalling Firefox and syncing with my Firefox account solve the problem? In a similar troubleshooting thread, renaming key4.db and logins.json is suggested. However, it has not been explained very clearly. My logins.json file was modified an hour before disaster, even though I had made no changes to any of my logins or the master password. Is my logins.json corrupted causing the issue? I will like to point out a design flaw in Firefox which might have caused the issue. I usually want to see what I am typing when I am entering an encryption password. This is to make sure that I don't mistype something. However, in Firefox Primary Password configuration window, there is not option to see what you are typing. Firefox relies on low probability of typing the wrong password twice. I don't think devs should be so worried about shoulder attacks to not even allow users option to view what they typing. My case might be that low probability situation where I made the same mistake while typing the passphrase twice.

Firefox unable to play live streams, after installing Media Feature Pack

After a recent reinstall Firefox seems to have a problem. This seems to be only Firefox specific and I can't find a working solution online after googling.

Youtube videos work, although they do give errors sometimes. A refresh always fixes those. However Twitch/Youtube live streams do not, and display a generic error message. When trying other browsers the live streams work fine.

And old Bugzilla post (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1467495) describes what I believe to be a possible reason for the problem, however following the solutions in that thread have not yet lead to a solution.

Any further insight or solutions would be appreciated.

Unsynced Devices Belonging To Other Household Members Opening Tabs On My Computer

Hi, I have been wanting to switch to Firefox for a while now and I have imported all of my data from Chrome onto Firefox. All the other members of my household use Firefox on their Mac laptops and iPhones. I have only ever signed into my own account on Firefox, and in the same way I have only ever signed into my own account on Mozilla VPN, which I have used for over a year while living elsewhere and have never had a problem with this. I also have only my own Google account in the data imported from Chrome. I have no one else's information for any account on anything in my device nor, to my knowledge, do they have any account information of mine on theirs. However, sometime in the 10 or so months since I imported my Chrome data - around the same time I moved into a house with others who use Firefox - my laptop's Firefox seems to have...connected somehow, in a way atypical with normal syncing, with the other devices in my house. Occasionally, when I open Firefox on my computer, whatever tab another household member has open on their computer will open instead of a homepage. Also, a little icon pops up occasionally to tell me Firefox is "open on iPhone" when another household member is using Firefox on their iPhone. I use an Android which does not have Firefox installed, so it's not a glitch syncing with my own device. I do not know how this happened and I do not know how to stop it. There doesn't seem to be any evidence of this connection in any place I can see in the preferences window, nor can I find any way to permanently unsync my device's Firefox application from anything unless I sync something first. Any ideas? I'm not that terrible with computers lol, I swear!

Every time I restart Firefox, places.sqlite which is currently 105MBs changes to only 5MBs and a new file named places.sqlite.corrupt appears. If I open Firefox, all my history is gone. If I rename the .corrupt file to places.sqlite my history comes back. I want to know why it gets corrupted? It happens when Firefox closes and it doesn't matter if there's a power cut, closing with X , or Exit, Firefox restarts and I have to rename the places.sqlite.corrupt file again. This has been happening for almost two years now. My computer stays on 24/7 and I may restart it once every 2-3 months, but sometimes you have to restart it many times a day because of issues and it's a pain in the behind to rename the places.sqlite.corrupt every single time. Any ideas?! Could an add-on be affecting it? I don't have a lot of them. Just basic AdBlocks.

Thank you.

Problems importing my saved passwords from Chrome to Firefox and syncing them

I currently use Chrome on Android & Chromebook as my main browser, but I would like to switch to using Firefox now across all my devices (linux, android, chromebook). To do this, I need to import my passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and have them sync between the Firefoxes on all of my devices, but it's not working. I have tried the following:

Method 1: I installed Chrome on my new Linux machine. Checked and made sure it had synced my passwords by logging into a website using Chrome. Then, on Firefox, I pressed alt to enable the toolbar, then File->Import from another browser. The pop-up says "No programs that contain bookmarks, history, or password data could be found."

Method 2: Chrome seems to have a feature to export the passwords to csv. So I exported the passwords from Chrome to a csv on Linux. To be thorough (because I am having trouble getting this to work), I used accounts.firefox.com to sign out the Firefox on my android phone and chromebook, then (on the phone) I deleted my browsing data, uninstalled firefox, and rebooted the phone. Back on Linux, I did about:config, then set signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled to true, then did about:logins then menu->"import from a file", selected the csv that I just exported from Chrome, and clicked Import. Import Complete, 332 logins added, 1 not added because it was missing a password. Logins successfully imported, hooray! For testing purposes, I create a unique new password entry, http://foo.com username "a" password "b". Then I go to about:preferences, make sure that syncing is on and I'm currently syncing logins and passwords, and press "sync now". Log in to my phone, install Firefox from the play store, start it up, sign in using my email and password (it says "syncing"), go to logins and passwords, click "saved logins". The only one listed is for foo.com, the fake one I created to test the syncing, but I expected to see all 333 there.

How do I get this to work?

Firefox worked perfectly, but since a few days I can't download anything. I'm using Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu 22.04, version 110.0.1 (64 bits) canonical-002 - 1.0 With Chrome everything works perfectly so I assume it's a problem from Firefox.

When I open a PDF, a MP3 or any file, the "save" option doesn't display anything. Usually it opened a dialog where I could choose the folder where I wanted to download the file, but now I have nothing.

I have only 4 extensions: - adblocker ultimate - duckduckgo privacy essentials - vuejs dev tools - zotero connector

I always had them and I never encountered any problem.

I am getting repeated pop-up windows that say that Firefox has crashed, but Firefox is not running on my system. It is not in the Startups and I rarely use it.

Windows 10 Firefox v110.0

Is this malicious not related to Firefox? Does Firefox have a background task that is not visible on Task Manager? Or what?

I cannot unpin Firefox from the taskbar

How do I uninstall the Firefox icon from the taskbar? The standard article on the Firefox Support website is `How to pin and unpin Firefox from the taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11', but it seems to be out of date. It says to right-click on the icon and click on `Unpin from taskbar', but there is no such item in the right-click menu any more.

I know that it became difficult to unpin the Firefox icon about a year ago. I got a new PC recently and installed Firefox, but I could not remove the icon. Then realised that I should have done this during installation, by using 'Custom installation' and unticking the 'Icon on taskbar' option. I searched the web for clues and found none, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, which was a nuisance.

Some months later, I have just installed the new version 110.0.1, but I forgot to use 'Custom install', with the result that the icon is back on the taskbar. Again I have searched the web, and again no success. I tried reinstalling V110.0.1 on top, using 'custom install' this time --- I could switch off the 'Icon on taskbar', but the icon is still there.

I don't want to uninstall-reinstall this time because I have now configured Firefox as I want it, so that would waste a lot of time --- and I will probably forget again sometime in the future.

I am sure that Firefox has not done this deliberately, because they are always so much on the user's side.

QUESTION: How do I unpin the Firefox icon from the taskbar without uninstalling? I have an idea that there is a registry hack that will achieve this.

when I open a new tab why does it open this website (https://search.rspark.com/?ytm)????

It's suppose to open a blank page. I set my preferences to open a blank page for a new tab. This never happened before until I updated my Firefox. I am using 110.0 Firefox browser on my Mac. I am running Mac OS 10.15.7

Never had this problem before and I did a clean install.

All typed text appears blue until you break it in some ways like pressing the spacebar or moving the keyboard cursor with the arrow keys. It happens at the firefox search bar as well, and search suggestions and autocomplete doesn't work whenever it happens.

When I'm using the kayosports.com.au video streaming service website on Firefox (version: 110.0.1) the right arrow button to navigate the media content shelf rows does not register when clicked with the mouse. Previously I was using version 109 of Firefox and the same bug was happening with that version as well.

When using the kayosports.com.au website on other Web Browsers like Brave the right arrow button responses just fine when clicked with the mouse.

Recently I've noticed that some sections in Google search results pages show black text on dark backgrounds when running dark mode.

It doesn't happen in private windows or in troubleshooting mode, so I suspect it's some obscure custom setting that's causing the issue. It also doesn't happen in other browsers.

I've tried switching themes and changing the colour override settings but can't find the setting causing the issue. I've also tried clearing the browser cache and cookies but no dice there either.

Hoping to avoid a refresh just to fix this.

Hello. I was reading Quora.com web site on my notebook in Firefox (110.0.1 64-bit) normally, then I got power outage. When electricity returned and I tried to open it again, browser didn't open it and I gave me message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.quora.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   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've tried to get support from Quora.com how message said, but they told me "this error does not originate from our website". And gave me some suggestions - "The easiest way to fix this secure connection error is to reset the Firefox settings." I've performed "Refresh Firefox", but problem persists. I don't use VPN. Can anyone please help me with this problem?

Hi, I have noticed that when using the latest release of Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, when I go to ABCnews.go.com and click into a story, there is an autostarting video. But instead of either waiting until I click on it or autostarting normally, it flashes wildly. I have disabled all extensions and the problem persists. Has anyone else encountered this? And more importantly, does anyone have a fix for this issue?

So, I have a couple of bookmarks folders with something like 200+ entries, with the folders themselves on my bookmarks toolbar. Previously, when I opened the folder from the toolbar, it would default to the last position observed, e.g. if I selected a bookmark from the middle, it'd open back up to the middle.

It's stopped doing that lately, and instead always opens to the top of the folder. I realize this sounds minor, but it's catastrophic for my use case. Anyone got any tips on how to make it revert to the previous behavior?
