Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

I am Getting both "incorrect password" and "your email was returned" errors

I know the password is correct as I can still use it to log in (including logging into these forums) though I am getting this error when trying to create a recovery key or reset my password

For the "your email was returned" error, the email address is typed correctly in my account and I have gotten confirmation emails from FireFox as recently as 2 days ago. I get this error when trying to sign in to sync the Multi-Account Containers addon, as well as when trying to use "forgot password" to get a reset link.

I'm not sure how to proceed with these errors as each issue is preventing me from resolving them on my own.

At one point while I was getting the incorrect password error I got a message that my account is locked and an email would be sent to me for confirmation...though of course that also got "your email was returned"

Can anyone help me with a master password issue?

The box appears at the appropriate time but I am unable to enter any text into the box. I point and click in the text space but the cursor does not appear and nothing happens when I start typing.

The sign in button is grey although I can click on it and the box briefly disappears then reappears asking for the password again. The cancel button works and closes the box.

I do not have the same problem on my Android mobile and I can access my passwords on my phone but not on my Windows laptop.

Thanks in advance, Grant.

First of this issue is atleast 4 years old. I found various different people having this problem. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644 It should be a P5 not a P3. This official Mozilla article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-trusted-websites-your-allow-list-firefox-focus Does NOT work.

I am trying to add an expection to tracking protection but there is no such option, as descriped at Bugzilla. In the adress bar i removed the tracking protection for a website. But it was NOT added to the exception list. I dont allow 3rd party cookies and auto delete cookies when closing Fox. I think that is the reason why it's not working, if this is the case it's a bug.

What i actually tried to do, using dark-theme from duckduckgo permanently. Because as right now, i must change the theme every single time i reopen Firefox. This is Bull**** honestly. Even when i add duckduckgo as an addon, it does not save the dark theme!

Hi, so I am a regular user of mozilla firefox on windows system. I did not notice when the problem started but firefox has been deleting my history everyday. I log in next day and there is no record of any previous history. I mostly browse on normal mode not the private, also the history settings are also checked not to clear browser history when firefox closes. Also I did not have a mozilla accoount previously before writing this question. Could it be the reason behind firefox deleting the history ? Would you please tell me what can be the issue and will I be able to resolve it on my own ? Thank you !

Firefox will not save ANY new passwords. Some older ones still work. Checking menu->passwords gives 'no logins found'

I use Thunderbird Mail which I had not updated for years. I was starting to get a lot of certificate errors of some emails so I did an update (and set auto update) It's now at 91.4.1. This update broke Thunderbird in that is needed a passwork every time is started, or sent email, or attempted to check the server for emails. Totally unusable. Searches to fix this suggested two files are used, and one post suggested a third file. Suggestions were delete these files and Thunderbird would recreate them. I did, it did and the problem remained. However the third file mentioned in only one post DIDN'T get recreated. From memory the three files were cert9.db, key4.db and logins.json and I think it was logins.json that didn't create. I created a dummy file of the same name and now I can save my email login.

As a result of the above cert9.db, key4.db and logins.json were deleted, from the Firefox profile as well as the Thunderbird one.

On starting Firefox I quickly found I'd lost all the logins, and started re-adding them as I needed them. This worked for a while, but now I can't add any more. Firefox still prompts to save but next time that site is accessed it asks for the password again (earlier sites are still remembered) The dates on the files are logins.json 14/11/2021, cert9.db & key4.db 15/11/2021 (current date 26/12/2021) I removed all these files from the Firefox profile, started Firefox and it recreated the two db files with the current date, logins.json was created with the date 13/11/2021, which is the date of logins-backup.json Next I deleted the three files and logins-backup.json and started Firefox, db files recreated but not logins.json this time.

In both cases the earier web sites still remember the passwords and the laster ones don't, and firefox still shows 'No logins found'

Where are the passwords stored? It's clearly not cert9 or key4, there's a hight source that can recreate these files

Is there a registry problem?

Thanks

Hi there,

I cleared my cache after it told me it had stored a gazillion GB in data - but the big number was still there after clearing the cache. Needless to say my harddrive isn't even as big as the GB number shown, so there must be a gremlin in there somewhere? Thought you'd want to know. I'm using the latest Firefox on Mac OS 10.15.7

Hi everyone,

I am running Firefox 91.5 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5 and just noticed that all my addons have been disabled and can't re-enable them.

Some of them are quite common modules such as Disconnect or Privacy Badger, so wondering what this may be.

There is a similar post on this forum dating back to 2019 and it mentioned a fix on Firefox was to be developped.

Anyone experiencing the same issue at the moment.?

Please see attached screenshot.

Kind regards,

Alex

Hello, I have 3 websites:

http://history.typeheritage.com/ http://forums.typeheritage.com/ http://bazaar.typeheritage.com/

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

A thousand thanks for your help, Anna

FF 80.0.1

Not sure when it started, but it has been happening for a LONG, long time. I clear data (cache) with a check mark, but clear cookies manually. It always - and I mean *always* goes into *FF not responding* and takes up to a couple of minutes to clear. Often, I have to press clear Save Changes several times.

The only time it goes quickly and without stopping (Not Responding) is if I clear a dozen cookies or less.

Is there a solution?

Thank you.

I use the save login info feature in Firefox. I have a saved login for a frequently used website. Firefox reliably fills out the username and password correctly for me. Recently it started asking me every time I log in to "Would you like to update this login?" prompt but with a bogus password. If I press "Update" it changes my password to this bogus password, so I have to press "Don't Update" every time I login just to keep my good password. If I do accidentally press "Update" I have to go to the "Saved Logins and Passwords" and manually fix my password for that website.

My question is, what would cause Firefox to think I have changed my password and give me this prompt when I have not?

And, by the way, the bogus password is always the word: "test" (my correct password is very strong and has over 20 characters).

My FF updated to version 82.0.2 (64-bit).

The file logins.json apparently contains all saved logins that I had before the upgrade. However, none shows up when nedded. I've added some that where already there and a new entry was created, at the end of the array of entries. I could not see why (1) the already existing entry could not be used and (2) the new entry did not replace the old one.
