I need to clear my personal data out of a computer before I return it to its owner. I am **absolutely** appalled and shocked by the fact that it seems to be impossible to clear out all my stored passwords on this firefox browser installation, unless I simply uninstall firefox -- which is exactly what I am about to do. And now that I am aware of this appalling security flaw, I am sorry to say that I will be uninstalling it from everywhere else I use it too.

How can it possibly be that it is thought to be "OK" that in order to remove stored passwords, the user must remove each individual password separately. In my case, that is 227 passwords!! I can clear all browsing history, all cookies, all site-cache data, etc etc.... but several minutes of searching, both in the settings and more generally online, only has produced a way to remove passwords one at a time?

If i have missed the UI to do this, then I apologize for being so annoyed -- but in that case I must report that the feature is EXTREMELY well hidden.

I just cannot BELIEVE any browser I sign into with firefox sync almost instantly copies 227 passwords of mine onto a machine, and that I cannot remove them without doing several HUNDRED clicks.

What am I failing to understand here?

It would be much appreciated if some future answer to this question could also be sent to [email]@gmail.com. I do not think i will be logging into my firefox account again until I can feel more secure that the act of logging in won't copy hundreds of passwords in a way which I then need to spend hours removing.

I loved this browser, but unless I am mistaken about this problem, I'm afraid I simply can no longer use it.

This particular firefox browser is running on an old old lubuntu 386 laptop. Or rather, it is about to be "was running." Perhaps this is a problem in some old old version of firefox which I am running because I am on such an old machine. It is 84.0.2 (32 bit) running on an old old Acer Aspire One. If that is the case, may I a suggest that you add to your support pages some information on how to remove ALL saved logins in a single act.

Thank you scott petrack

I let Firefox store my logins so I don't have to hunt no matter which computer I'm using. Lately, Firefox has decided to show logins that don't exist or haven't been used in decades (yes, DECADES). I ran CTRL-SHIFT- DEL, shut down and and restarted FF and rebooting. The fool things still show. What gives? How can these unneeded items be permanently removed? Thank you.

Hi, as a user of Firefox from day1 I have hit my first problem so not bad going. Right, I have a win10 desktop(DT1) and 2 laptops (LP1 AND LP2). All win10 fully patched up &Firefox 84.02. This morning I noticed my network share from LP1 to DT1 wasnt working and found LP1 powered down. Powered it up & it looked to be completing a patch (KB4598242) so let it finish successfully and logged in. It wouldnt take the 2 master pw prompts although definitely typing them correctly. Poked around the forum that talks of key4.db, key3.db and logins.json. Only had key4db but had a loginsbackup.json. deleted logins.jason and renamed loginsbackup. reloaded. Same, so am stuck. Did notice as LP1 loaded after powering on that a Firefox update occurred. Could one have messed the other? Anyway these things seldom happen on their own so what went on yesterday. On LP2 I noticed that on each reboot I got 2 identical FFox windows. I tried refresh, uninstalling ffox & mainteneance service, same. So I searched for the word firefox and deleted everything I could find and reinstalled FFox. Same, so switched off & gave up. Perhaps I have sync between my devices, not sure. However I have never at any stage changed my master passwords which is the same on all 3 pc's. Any ideas? Shame to lose over 120 passwords if I have to somehow start over again by uninstalling FFox and reinstalling..that'll take ages. And of course the password prompt is coming up all the time whilst typing this. Help please

"Autofill logins and passwords". This works for a session of Firefox, but when I close it and start a new one, it does not retain the selection. Is there another setting somewhere that is undoing it?

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

Good day to all,

Can anyone tell me why I do not have the option to continue to a particular website?

I get this message... "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead"

I click Advance tab and only get the "Go Back (Recommended) option, not a continue button.

A co-worker can get to the site every time. He has two options to "Go Back" or to Add an Exception and continue to the site. There seems to be two differences between our browsers: 1) He has an older version and I have the newest version. 2) Under the "About:Config" I have an extra line that I cannot change "security.certerror.hideAddException" This option is set to "True" and is locked and grayed out. I do not have the option to change it.

Any ideas?

I recently found out that default option for firefox is to share data across windows users. I have my pc set up with an admin account and my family account and with their access to firefox (i didn't log in to firefox on their user) they can see all my passwords and usernames. Since I use lockwise to store my logins i really wish this didn't happen. How to avoid it?

Hi, since today I've been unable to connect to reCAPTCHA. At first the reCAPTCHA boxes didn't show up at all and Firefox prevented me from connecting with Google because of an error with the certificate. I was able to fix that by allowing Firefox to trust root authorities (solution #6 on this list: https://sectigostore.com/page/fix-the-warning-potential-security-risk-ahead-error-in-firefox/ )

While the reCAPTCHA boxes are showing up again, I still can't connect with it. When checking the box, it starts loading for a while and I get an error message saying that there's no contact with reCAPTCHA and that I should check my connection and try again. I included a screenshot.

I went to topics of people who had the same problem and tried everything. Disabling protection against tracking, disabling Adblock, starting Firefox in safe mode, refreshing Firefox, loading another Firefox profile, restarting Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, restarting my pc. I'm desperate.

I'm only having this problem in Firefox, not in any other browser.

Hello,

I have a MacBook Air (macOS Big Sur 11.1) since mid-December, before that I was using Windows. I have downloaded Firefox. Now I have the problem that I have to log in to my Firefox account every time when I end Firefox completely (or the Macbook crashes, but that's for Apple support). 'How can I stay logged in?" It's about my Firefox account through which I sync all my bookmarks and passwords. That works as well, until the next launch.

Thanks in advance


Hallo,

ich habe seit Mitte Dezember ein MacBook Air (macOS Big Sur 11.1), vorher habe ich mit Windows gearbeitet. Habe mir Firefox geladen. Jetzt habe ich das Problem, dass ich mich ständig bei Firefox anmelden muss, wenn ich Firefox komplett beende (oder das Macbook abstürzt, aber das ist für den Apple Support). Wie kann ich angemeldet bleiben? Es geht um meinen Firefox Account über den ich alle meine Lesezeichen und Passwörter synchronisiere. Das funktioniert auch, bis zum nächsten Start.

Vielen Dank im Voraus

Hallo,

I have changed the security settings in the Firefox browser so that I can block cookies. I am aware that almost all pages ask for it. But you can also make exceptions. I did this for my bank page, because I have to register my browser every time I close and reopen the browser. If I put the URL and the extension in the exceptions, only the basic URL is displayed, but not the extension.

Example: https://banking.bankaustria.at/wps/portal/retail/de/login/login/!ut/p/a1/jZDLDoIwFES_hqX0CqLVXVVCgs8EiNiNKRERhULaIvHvRVcafM3uTs5MJhdRFCLK2SVNmEoLzrL7Tfs7Y4hJF3swB3diARnPg94MD7rgWQ2wfQacqWMDmToD3wssAAP-y8MHkZ_5DaKviGMvDCCuj5czOzDHK7MFtCc-gC8bXESTrIge_9gSHpk4QVTEh1jEQq9EYx-VKuVIAw3qutYjxs-skkqkTGdKA6N3LaoOi_I421c80U-yfNd0LKRCYbsAlXkQQrrON1iSG1SR8_k!/dl5/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/

This is the page for entering the login data. If I copy this URL into the exceptions for blocking cookies, only "https://banking.bankaustria.at" appears there. I still have to confirm my browser registration with a TAN.

Is there perhaps another option so that I don't have to register every time - other than generally allowing cookies?

Thanks and regards Eric

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?
