PROBLEM 1: I do not understand why after every few days all my sessions suddenly gets expired. My firefox is set to open all tabs where i left off and most of them had sessions. If it was one session that was expiring then i could have thought that it must be that website's issue but all sessions on open tabs expires at once.

PROBLEM 2:

In case there is a version upgrade or a browser crash ... all save passwords are gone. I cant get them back even with account sync.

-- I have never seen any "old firefox" name folder on desktop ever in my entire life. -- I am not using any extension. -- I am using default theme.

These 2 issues have been irritating me for years now I am really really pissed off .. whats the use of even saving the passwords when one has to lose them one day suddenly.

before update to version 41.0, username/password saving mechanism works good. but after update to firefox 41.0, when I select "Remember passwords for sites", the username/password appear in different input box in different page. e.g. in below input, I added attribute "input autocomplete="off" ", but the username also appear which should not here for saved username in other page :(

saved page user_name: <input id="j_username" name="j_username" class="text required" placeholder="Username" autocomplete="off" type="text">

but saved username appear in another page of input box: <input autocomplete="off" class="input-text username1" type="text">
