Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

Out of control data clearing

How do I stop Firefox from out of control data clearing? There is a window under Privacy & Security / History / Clear History that opens a window that allows a user, in theory, to choose which components to clear (cookies, cache, etc.) In that window is a pull down menu to specify the time range to clear. A screen shot of that is attached. I do NOT want my cookies cleared unless I say so. I do not want cookies or some of the other components cleared from the last hour, I don't want them cleared from the last two hours or the last four hours or today. (And the "Everything" reference does not make sense syntactically in this setting.) A screen shot of that menu is attached.

It does not matter if I uncheck one or all of those boxes by cookies, cache, etc. When I open the browser the next time, they are checked again -- AND THE MOFO COOKIES HAVE TO BE MANAGED AGAIN, ETC., ETC., ETC.

What have a setting if Firefox is going to arbitrarily clear everything immediately or once and hour or by some criterion it has not revealed to the user -- nor has informed the user exists?

Anyone have any thoughts on a work-around?

Thanks.

Firefox was working well on HTTP websites until a few days ago, but now HTTPS-Only Mode seems to be permanent. Despite changing settings to 'Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode', when HTTP sites are selected I get the same message as for 'HTTPS-Only Mode'. Also, if I select 'Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows' and add exceptions, I get the same result.

On a late model Dell laptop, there are no domains listed under Exceptions-Cookies and Site Data. When I key in a domain (whether using www., http, https, or just the domain name by itself.) and click on Allow, that website is not added. It's the same as if browser security is stuck on Remove All Websites. With the same Privacy and Security settings on my desktop, I do not have this problem, so it appears not to be a matter of altering particular settings. Short of removing and reloading Firefox on the laptop, which might work but not teach anybody anything, are there suggestions?

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

Yes, I read your post about stopping the repeated prompts for the master password. You say go to settings, stop using a master password, restart Firefox -- then sometime later, you could start using one again. Wow. Please. There are times when I do not want to enter the master word, even when going to sites for which I saved passwords. For one thing, I can leave my computer for a while, without having to restart Firefox, lest someone has access to all my sites. But the prompt -master password "required"- comes back again and again. It can be ignored, and I can go to any site and log in (it's not really "required"), but the prompt comes back, again and again. You've received several complaints about this. Please, why can't you do the simple programing task of an option the user can select, saying "don't ask again (until you restart Firefox)."

Thank you.

p.s. if you can't manage that, please change the existing prompt to more honestly read: "Enter your master password. Firefox thinks you're an idiot for not entering your master password, so even though it's not strictly required to sign in to web sites, we're going to ask you again and again, unless you go the trouble of stopping use of master word and then the trouble to restart it. Because that's how Firefox works, and our programmers don't know how, or we don't care enough, to give you the option to suspend this prompt."

My Firefox recently updated itself to version 112.0 - since then, when I close all its windows and then run FF again, on all websites opened in tabs (e.g. Facebook, Google Search etc.) I am logged off. In previous FF versions, my logged-in status was preserved between individual FF runs. Firefox not only logs me out of all sites, but also logs me out of the LastPass extension, which also stayed logged in in previous Firefox versions. Anyone knows what is going on? I dont want to have to relogin to all sites each time...

I recently changed the Privacy & Security settings in Firefox v100.0.2 (Mac) to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all Windows". Since that change, even though Google is my default search engine, all searches take me to a window that says: "You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of www.searchbaron.com is not available." I did a google search and the recommendation was to delete the searchbaron extension in Extensions but there isn't one there. I like the security of only going to https sites and if possible would like to keep that setting.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix this? Thanks.

I am a UK user and have just installed and started to use Firefox on a brand new Linux Mint installation. As I am transferring from a Windows/Chrome environment, there is a lot of setting up to do. Firefox transferred most of the chrome info for me, and so I was able to get up and running with bookmarks and logins quite quickly. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have been able to set up my credit card details, and these are prompted when needed, BUT, Firefox will not remember my name, email, phone or address. Thus for every form that I have to fill, I have to enter these details, again and again (and again).

I have looked at settings and see that the 'Autofill Address' option is not present (see attachment).

I have followed and implemented the fix proposed elsewhere, to update/add GB as an address format. This has not made a difference.

Can anyone please help.

Regards,

Mark

Dear Support, I posted my js-library on the hosting https://rombase.ru/o5/olga5/o5.js and copied it to https://leonrom.github.io/o5/olga5/o5.js

I try to connect to it from Blogger, for example: https://olga-5.blogspot.com/2020/02/olga5-shp.html?o5debug=2 and I change the link to the library's hosting in the <head> of my blog.

The Chrome browser works the same way wherever o5.js is located. But Mozilla, when placed on rombase.ru, swears in the console: `The resource at “https://rombase.ru/o5/olga5/o5.js” was blocked by Safe Browsing`

My Firefox is 109.0.1 (64 bit) under MX Linux

Could you please tell me: what is the "safety"-difference between rombase.ru and leonrom.github.io? What shall I change in rombase.ru to work properly?

Thank you PS Connecting via VPN (from Ukraine) does not help

Made several posts about floating videos and never one answer over the course of two years that I can recall. One of the biggest user problems with FF and we get -- nothing. If the developers are incapable of solving this go ahead and tell us ! We can look for other browser options. I have researched everything to do with the matter and the topic just round and round and round in circles. Dozens claim to have the answer but they are all full of hooey. Simple question -- time to start looking for options other than FF ?

I loaded the postcode lottery website but it's completely blurred. I last checked the same website last month, and it worked fine. I have cleared the cookies from Firefox, but the result is the same. It appears clear for a moment, then blurs. No pop-ups asking to accept cookies. It works fine using Chrome. Any idea why Firefox won't display it properly? It loads the National Lottery website, so it's not about gambling sites I guess.

I am unable to de-select the "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" setting. The option is checked and I cannot "uncheck" the box. The texted is grey and the check box is a light color denoting it's not able to be toggled.

I searched for a solution and it's not the same problem as others are having where they have the the "never remember history" option enabled. My setting is "remember history."

I am a personal user, and this is my personal computer. I have admin rights on my computer. Running Windows 10 Pro.

Thank you for any help with this.

There are no previous versions of these two files available in the system.

Please let me know how I can recover passwords, may be with a special software.

I really didn't want to make an account and synchronise.... I only use the passwords on this machine. But I do need to view them all in.

So, set that all up, synchronised...even rebooted. But still can not see my passwords? I'm logged into several sites...auto logged in every time. Just that I have forgotten what some of them are....Firefox knows? But still won't let me see or download them.

I also can't seem to find my logins.json file...but it must be somewhere as firefox has remembered all the passwords!

says 'No synchronised logins found.'

I'm also on linux here if that matters. Seems to be a bug or i'm not doing that I do need to do?
