Hello all. I seem to have a new version of Firefox installed on my computer, or an update has made it a newer version (89) and now it does not save my passwords. When I close down the laptop and re start it the next time I want to use it and go to firefox, none of the paswords I had thought I'd saved previously are there. This is very frustrating as I have a lot of places I visit which I had, in previous times using an earlier version of firefox, saved passwords which populated the correct places. I am no techie so really don't understand what has happened. Every time I want to get onto even my email, I have to leaf through my black book to find the necessary password and do it all manually.

Please can anyone help?

My PC (running Windows 10) crashed and when I restarted I'd lost all of my bookmarks plus I was prompted to create a new user profile. I'm running Firefox 89.0.1 I've tried following the information to find and restore my bookmarks but when I try this all Firefox prompts me is to import from another browser platform (which I don't use). Any ideas?

I retired from my workplace and was previously syncing my settings to my workplace email lkendall@keeferealestate.com. When I got my computer back I had a new user profile and when my I.T. guy and myself signed in (forgot my Firefox pwd) so we reset my pwd and then changed my email to my personal email address lkendall@genevaonline.com. Unfortunately after the browser finished syncing none of my saved sites, pwd, bookmarks, etc., came back....help!

The bookmarks are now all spaced out so they can't be read and they take up 2 to 3 times more space. This is AWFUL. The tabs are now "floating around" so they don't look like tabs and also CAN'T BE READ. Isn't there anyone there that knows how to do graphics? Both of these things were just fine and DID NOT need to be changed. And now they're awful and unusable.

How do I change them back?

am seeing an issue in firefox on unix with accessing a web page which uses basic http authentication mechanism. It pops up for user id and password for basic authentication. When I enter the credentials and click submit the response received is 401 Unauthorized. Same webpage and authentication works in chrome browser on same system (so assuming no firewall issues). The Firefox and chrome is configured in a console where we test it. And both are requesting for the same host. I believe there is some configurations issue in Mozilla firefox that might be affecting it. Attaching the request and response for both.

Firefox version that has a problem : Mozila Firefox 78.4.0esr


Request and response in Chrome

Request

   GET /content/ HTTP/1.1

Host: 3.87.81.51 Connection: keep-alive Cache-Control: max-age=0 Authorization: Digest username="admin", realm="Power Xpert", nonce="16981e9013fd33c215fb54cfe5c8246b", uri="/content/", response="527760ce114bf839a9df342ba27ca352", qop=auth, nc=00000002, cnonce="572ab111183b3236" Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/91.0.4472.101 Safari/537.36 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/avif,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8,application/signed-exchange;v=b3;q=0.9 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.9

Below Authentication header is missing in firefox.

Authorization: Digest username="admin", realm="Power Xpert", nonce="16981e9013fd33c215fb54cfe5c8246b", uri="/content/", response="527760ce114bf839a9df342ba27ca352", qop=auth, nc=00000002, cnonce="572ab111183b3236"

Hi for a while now, few months Firefox crash like crazy on my PC

Sometimes it would just crash at start, and refused to open Sometimes tab start crashing, and eventually firefox crashes

Common sites where i see the crash happens are cnn.com and nba.com

I usually restart my PC , refresh firefox or reinstall it to get rid of the crashes but this is very tiring , very tiring

I am sure its something on my PC that causing the conflict, because even reinstalling doesnt entirely fix it

But i have no clue what it could be
