Good morning,

For one thing; why can’t I use the email I am talking about; [email address] (it says it’s in use). How can it be in use when I haven’t used it on this website before?

Please view the short video below to what I am experiencing when I try and log into my email account.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Firefox storing cookies and site data even in private mode. How do I stop this?

After the latest update Firefox stores cookies and site data even in always private and the content blocking set to custom with everything set it the highest settings. Example i can check my email at outlook com then sign out click forget, then close the browser. then open it and it loads my email account without signing in. The only way it can do that is, the browser is storing cookies and site data. the only way to prevent it from doing this is to do everything i described then open the privacy settings and clear cookies, and site data and clear history, two times. Firefox like this is the most unsecured browser. it was a lot better before all these changes. It was a good idea, but it's caused a lot of troubles with security issues for me.

When upgrading from 56 to 62 my saved logins and passwords disappeared and copying the files did not help; how can I get them back?

I have just recently moved from Firefox 56 up to 62 (I had a few Legacy add-ons that I didn't want to loose, so I just stopped upgrading at 56; now, I need to upgrade and found a work-around for the main add-ons that I loose in 62). However, once I upgraded to 62, all of my saved log-ins and passwords were gone. I tried copying the files from my saved profile but that did not fix the problem. However, the passwords are still there, as when I downgrade back to 56, all the passwords come back. Is there any way to get these passwords back or do I have to reenter them all manually?

I need to clear active login cache stored by the browser during login in order to avoid automatic login of user if the user clicks back button after logout or access the same link in new tab before closing the browser. I am able to manually clear and it works as expected. But I need to do it programmatically and couldn't find any feasible solution.

I encountered this issue before and thought it must have been a fluke, used Chrome and got around the issue. Now here I'm again. Another site that won't let me login using Firefox. I wonder if your team can figure this out and update Firefox with whatever it needs to work with all websites and not miss a few. Site name is in title.

For instance, I am signing into a website and it requires send a SMS to my cell phone or an email. I check the box that this is my personal private computer, not a public computer and request that subsequent uses of this website not ask for a security email or SMS. Not time I use it, it still requests.

Anyway that I can avoid this?

Firefox inserts a blank space in fron of stored User ID's for login fields. This drives me nuts. How do I configure Firefox to NOT insert the blank space?

I try to use Forefox to log into specific accounts and despite the fact that I configure the User ID correctly when I store it, Firefox always automatically inserts a blank space into the User ID field. I then get an error and have to correct the User ID. What is the point of storing the User ID if I have to manually correct it anyway?

Please tell me how to configure the browser to behave normally.

Thanks.

this only started happening after the last firefox upgrade and it is only a few websites, others all login fine. I tried all different settings, deleted the username/password from firefox settings but it doesn't help. i literally have the backspace one character of username or password that is saved by firefox and reenter so the login gets highlighted. this is soooo frustrating. Or I can just enter a space in either field and then backspace and login is then high lighted. I'd send screenshots but I really don't want to sent my login information. lol.. I use pnc

Hello, I have pinned two of my tabs and both are Gmail. They are both my accounts that Gmail lets you add to the same browser. It worked fine for over a year now. I have always been logged in in those, so when i close and open Firefox again I am logged automatically. I guess that is possible because i checked "Stay Logged in" in Gmail login screen. Now, from no apparent reason, every time when I start Firefox, both Gmail tabs are not logged in. I have to enter password again. "Stay logged in" checkbox is selected but it will not work.

I hope I have been clear enough. Can you please help me? Thank you
