Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

Why was one of the add-ons able to take over control of the entire browser and add-ons in it and establish its own rules? At the same time, it deleted all history and open tabs and my profile (firefox) did not save anything and did not restore the current session after reinstalling the browser, although it is worth remembering the current session and tabs there. I tried to remove this add-on for a long time, but it blocked all possibilities to do it. The browser began to open with one tab with an incomprehensible address, which was not even displayed correctly, and any attempt to search for something led to the opening of an incomprehensible search engine, but it was possible to go to Google. I don’t remember the name of the search engine, alas, it was several months ago, there was still no time to write to you. Oh yes, on the screenshots everything is in Russian, I'm not sure that you can fully understand them, and if so, write to me about it and I will try to translate the key positions. I would be glad to hear at least some thoughts on this in my profile mail. Here are some screenshots:

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

On my other computer I open Firefox and immediately get a pile of pop-ups. These pop-ups seem to be cookie requests from my speed dial sites, and no matter what I click ("allow" or "deny") they keep coming back and then freeze up and I can't use the browser so I have to turn off computer. Help, please.

Lately I often get message that I am unable to reach Mozilla's servers. I live in Russia and my IP is Russian too. I had to reinstall Firefox recently and my sync was incomplete (no logins, no history, no bookmarks) even though I had that checked in before. Could it be external problem because of recent Telegram blockings in Russia? Or is it only me?

Persistent scroll problem on one site following a post-crash session restore

I don't normally save and restore sessions, but do have firefox set to restore the previous session in the event of a crash.

Recently, following a power cut, such a session restore occurred, correctly restoring all the pages I had open at the time (not many), and the scroll position within the page.

Since this happened, any page I open on one particular site (https://www.theguardian.com) now always scrolls to the end of the page, and I have to manually scroll back up to the top. Once loaded, you can scroll the page normally, but F5 refresh will reload the page and scroll to the end again. This effect is persistent across restarts, and I've not found a way to get rid of it.

I've tried simulating another crash with that site open, scrolled to the top, and I've tried enabling saving the session on exit and restoring on startup - none of this has changed anything. In both cases it restored the session and scrolled to the end.

Any suggestions as to where this effect might be coming from?

Firefox 75 Broke login and proxies to Employer's system

I am an academic librarian working from home. Literally for years, I've been able on Windows 7 and now Windows 10 to log into my grad school's online system including access to databases. Much of this requires a proxy for authentication. Before I describe the error, let me say that I installed Zotero over a year ago and have never had problems with it. Now, when I try to login, I get this, even when trying only to log in. There are two lines. The yellow bar that is hard to read because it keeps flashing but here's my best shot: Zotero automatically redirected your request to gslibrary.authn.worldcat.org through the proxy at gbtssbc.idm.oclc.org. Some space then "Don't proxy this site Proxy settings X

If your browser does not continue automatically, click here. I have tried numerous times to click "here" but I can't. For one moment, both the tellow bar and the message this is normal black text on white shows and then the yellow bar disappears and the black text moves up on the page. When I try to click "here" it keeps jumping around. I"ve never seen anything like this in many years on Firefox.

   I can successfully log in and use resources with the proxy on Opera. It does not complain. Someting about Firefox 75 is broken. I prefer using Firefox the most of the browsers available but I can't work like htis. I need to look up books and help users search for journal articles all the time. I cannot do without that. I don't really like Opera because of the lack of options but this is the straw that breaks the camel's back. If I cannot fix this, bye-bye Firefox. That's pretty serious for me for me but I must be able to work from home efficiently. Note: I disabled the Zotero plug-in. I asked on the Zotero forum and got some suggestions that didn't really help. I don't think it is Zotero. Zotero is only showing up because it connects to our librayr system. How can I fix this? I don't even know precisely what is wrong but for one thing, it shows the wrong URL  for logging in. That hasn't been true for a long time. I do not want to clear all my saved passwords and cookies to fix what is pretty clearly a FF 75 bug. I was a programmer a lot of years on complex systems. All the fingers are pointed at FF 75.

I just want to report a malware attack I experienced yesterday (8/29/20) which seemed to affect only Firefox.

After I clicked on the link to Boston Globe article my Firefox screen was filled with what purported to be a message from Microsoft saying that my computer was blocked because of suspicious activity detected on my IP address and telling me to call 1-888-222-6480. It also wanted me to enter my Microsoft password and warned me not to turn off my computer. The whole thing looked suspicious to me, especially since a pop-up window on the page requesting me to enter something (I forget what) showed a URL that began https://drink3.ga At some point, I don’t remember whether it was when I did turn off my computer or whether it was because I didn’t respond to messages commands, the malware did something to make my computer heat up and caused the fan to run at a ferocious rate until a message appeared that a break point had been reached and Firefox closed down. I was then able to use another browser to get to the Firefox support page and learn about refreshing Firefox. After I did that, Firefox behaved normally.

I am sending this to you because it’s something you should be aware of and represents a vulnerability in Firefox that should be addressed.

Hi all. Seems like after updates, my computer slows down. It has become so recognizable, I know when the registry errors appear, as my computer performance falls off. I must use Reginout Registry cleaner, and CC Cleaner to restore performance. Along with any FireFox updates, my bookmarks have all been deleted many times over. I no longer attempt to re-install, as they continually get deleted, and so simple fix is available to me that I can understand. Thank you.

Firefox kills network with chatter

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.
