Someone else used my computer to log in to their gmail account a long time ago. Now, everytime I want to log in to my gmail account, their profile pops up. I can't log in to delete it, and it is annoying because I'm always asked to log in to their email first...rather than my own. I could easily delete the user when I log on using google chrome...

Even with the check in the box to remember, Firefox will not remember user name or password for any web site I log into. It will ask me if I want it to remember, to which I click remember. but it never show's up in my Saved Password List, and it never remembers user name or password.

I have followed the support links and went over in detail multiple times.

This is a new setup, on windows 10 pro and FF 43, Vipre internet security. I did look at vipre but didnt see anything about saving passwords in a browser. Edge, and Chrome will remember them. Just firefox wont. so it dont appear to be an outside force causing the problem.

I tried setting a master password. it remembered that, but didnt change anything. so I removed the master password.

Thanks in advance! Tom

Firefox Sync is missing saved logins (fetch data correctly but don't use it)

Hi,

I installed Firefox Nightly (56.0a1 (2017-07-22) (64-bit)) and enabled sync for bookmarks and passwords. Bookmarks were synced correctly, but not the passwords.

I can see a the file logins.json in my profile folder, with the logins content. But if I go to Preferences->Security->Saved Logins the list is empty. Also, logins form field are not auto filled.

None content was imported manually. Nightly somehow synced and downloaded the logins.json, but apparently it's not using it.

I already did this exact same process (reinstall in new machine + sync) without any problem, except for this time/version. May it be a bug?

I already tried some forum solutions: connect/reconnect account; delete signedInUser.json; restarting; etc. Everytime the logins.json is correctly fetched from the web with the content, or the bookmarks are synced correctly, but Nightly apparently is not 'using' the contents of this file.

Thank you,

Mario

I am migrating from an older system to a newer system.

I need the location of the password file, please.

I tried to migrate and overwrite the entire Firefox folder, but the passwords weren't transferred?

I cannot use sync on the cloud. This is a secured laptop and the Cloud doesn't offer sufficient safeguards.

TIA.

I cannot access my wordpress.org site to edit it through Firefox. Error message says I have wrong password: not true. But I went ahead and asked for link to reset password, did so several times, and still cannot enter into my Wordpress dashboard. This is definitely a Firefox issue, as I can access my WordPress account through Safari and Google Chrome. I want to continue to use Firefox, but cant if I cannot use it to access critical pages for my business.

This is a recent error message:
