I've been using Firefox for a long time, several years, and recently have been accessing some feature that looks like a password manager on my laptop, called Lock <something>--actually I'm not sure what it's called, because I can't seem to bring it up on its own to locate my password info.

I believe in password managers, and I'm trying to move over there, but I've run into a big snag on my mobile Android device... I have no idea how to bring up my Gettr account on my Android because I don't know where the password that I configured for my Gettr account on my laptop is located. I know it's inside the Firefox password manager somewhere... then I see Lockwise is no longer being supported.

Ultimately I want to synch whatever Firefox's latest password manager is to my Android, so that it functions like "whatever Firefox's latest password manager is" for my laptop. I'd like to synch my bookmarks, too. Can anyone point me to some simple instructions? Thanks. I'm using a primary password now for Firefox on my laptop. My email address is ...

Windows 10. Within the last week lock-wise behavior has changed. When starting Firefox, Logins & Passwords is empty. To get it filled I'm required to login to my Firefox account and sync. When Firefox is closed I am auto disconnected from the account and Logins & Passwords is cleared. Previously I did not have to login to Firefox to access the saved passwords. I've tried various combinations of History settings and login out of Firefox but lock-wise is always empty when Firefox is restarted. I do not have this issues on IOS platforms (phone or tablet).

How do I prevent auto disconnect or lockwise emptying when Firefox is closed? Thanks

Good evening, I downloaded firefox developer and I must say that I was very amazed by the wonderful browser you have created, the only problem is that when I want to go to view the credentials, any person can view the password (I use a window login password) .

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!

Hi Firefox developer team. Please, could you add the follow fields and controls for Logins & Password? 1) tags field (like to Firefox - could use the sames of that) 2) e-mail field 3) last modify field 4) policy feature (like to Password Manager) 5) expiration feature (like to Password Manager) 6) full export/backup and restore to: Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive

Where could add my ideas to Firefox? Do you have uservoice.com or similar to insert add features?

Thank you in advance.

Hello

The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

https://prod-tp.sumo.mozit.cloud/en-US/questions/1271509#question-reply

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

I would like to have in next version of Firefox a checkbox, when I click on a text field which has saved username, then I would only see saved usernames for this current website. Now I see saved usernames for all websites.

So when I click on a checkbox, the saved usernames in blue reactangle on picture below, won't be shown. I will only see usernames "From this website".

This can be useful, when there are many saved usernames for many websites.

I have searched every support post that has anything remotely to do with my problem. I have tried booting in safe mode, downloading Firefox ESR and performing folder acrobatics with key3 and key4 files, I have disabled my anti-virus software. To no avail.

This morning, I was forced to log back in to my Firefox Browser "due to security reasons" and when I did all of my logins and passwords were gone. if I go to about:protections and scroll to the bottom of the page, Firefox Lockwise tells me that I have 158 passwords saved securely. But if I go to Logins & Passwords, there are only the 5 passwords that I have saved today since the issue began.

I NEED HELP!!!!!
