Firefox sync won't save imported passwords, but will save passwords manually entered

I exported my passwords from Chrome and used FFPass to import into Firefox.

The passwords are visible by inspecting:

Machine 1: Settings->Preferences->Privacy and Security->Saved Logins Machine 2: Settings->Logins and Passwords

But when I set-up my third machine and sync, everything gets installed correctly (bookmarks, tabs, preferences, etc) except logins. I don't see any logins; however, if I manually browse to a website, enter my login, Firefox will ask if I want to save. If I click yes, then that login is saved, but none of my imported logins are.

Can someone help? I have over 150+ logins... manually adding them one-by-one is not an option.

Machine 1: RHEL 7.7 / Firefox 60.8.0esr Machine 2: F29 / Firefox 68.0.2 Machine 3: F30 Firefox 68.0.2

Hi, my FF does not remember page zoom when I close and reopen the page later. This used to work until some time ago. At first I thought this was some problem with addons. I tried disabling all addons but to no luck. I am running FF 60.7.1esr (deb9u1) on Debian 9.9.

I cannot make any new bookmarks, period. Neither the button in the address bar, nor the button in the menu, nor the keyboard shortcut will make a new bookmark. all previously added bookmarks still work fine, and still show up in the manager screen.

When I try to add a bookmark, nothing happens, no menu pops up, nothing changes, it just has no response for that input for some odd reason.

as far as I remember, an addon didn't cause this issue, as ive had this current set of addons for about a year, and only began to experience this issue a month or two ago, and disabling all of them doesn't fix the issue.

Would appreciate any help, as I am getting quite sick of dumping all of my bookmarks into a text file,

Ill be happy to provide any info needed, but may need a bit of help accessing it, since i haven't done virtually any in depth tinkering with firefox's inner workings

i don't know is it just me? i have used forums all over the web and to post a new question, you just click on the "New Post" button or something similar.

why is it here in Firefox, that button is not there? you have to jump thru several layers of questions and answers before being able to post a question like this one!!

To the firefox forum maintainers, please create a "New Post" button instead of forcing us thru several layers of questions.

In the Google sign in page (attached), the blue "next" button is unresponsive. Hitting enter or tab/space causes to button to go through its click animation, reflecting that I did indeed click the button, but nothing happens after that.

~ Here's what I tried:

  • cleared cookies, cache ==> no change
  • ipconfig /flushdns ==> no change
  • restarting Firefox (including uninstalling and reinstalling) ==> no change (and firefox is up to date)
  • trying on different browsers ==> does not work on Edge, or Opera BUT WORKS WELL ON TOR BROWSER
  • downloading Chrome ==> error message tells me to check internet connection, however that can't be the issue because I can use internet just fine on every other website not affiliated with Google. (Yahoo, Facebook, etc. login screens work fine.)

Google otherwise works well on the computer I use in my office building, but it's the weekend and I have no access to that computer until Monday.

Google works normally on my phone, as far as I can tell. I haven't had to sign back in in a while.

~ Other information:

  • Until I was logged out of Gmail, I noticed MOST IF NOT EVERY ICON WAS MISSING. Reply buttons, toolbar buttons, etc. were invisible, but otherwise worked if I remembered where everything was supposed to be.
  • Gmail's about page is totally blank on normal browsers (Tor excluded) (attachment 2)

I would greatly appreciate any assistance as I can't keep using Tor for everything. Thank you for reading this far.

The new update (66.0.3) blocked LASTPASS and also Kaspersky protection. There was no warning and it is a major problem for my 5 computers. I NEED THESE and i'm sure many others do, as well. Unless there is an EASY and QUICK fix i will be forced to abandon firefox and i've been there from the start.

I AM APPALLED that there was no warning about these serious and disabling changes as well as what would be disabled. At least we could contact the software affected and find out if there is a fix before we are just summarily screwed by loss of function.

You may be fixing security concerns, but you have created much more serious security concerns in the process...

For what seems like perhaps a couple of weeks, I have had an odd situation where typing into the Google search box in Firefox 60.7.2esr (32-bit) causes the whole screen to fade somewhat until I click elsewhere on the screen (whether a link or an inactive area). Importantly, I am talking about the search box at Google.com, *not* the Firefox search box (the issue does *not* occur when I use the latter). It's kind of like what you see happen to the screen when activating the Windows Snipping tool, before taking the snip, though not quite *that* faded.

In the attached image, the left half is *without* the cursor positioned in the search box, and the right half -- which shows the fading -- is *with* the cursor positioned in the search box for typing.

Some points: (1) This does not happen when using Google Search in Chrome or IE. (Firefox is my default browser, BTW.) (2) This does not happen on either of my other two Windows 7 pc's, which also use Firefox 60.7.2esr (32-bit). (3) Disabling add-ons by using Safe Mode doesn't change the behavior. (4) Disabling Hardware Acceleration doesn't change the behavior.

My main concern with this behavior is in case it indicates the possibility of some kind of malware. My secondary concern is whether it might indicate some other current or potential problem with my system, although I haven't noticed any other issues thus far. Other than that, I don't mind the behavior, as it doesn't slow me down or prevent me from accomplishing anything.

Any suggestions or other thoughts? (I prefer not to do a reset.) Thanks.

A few days ago I've switched from Windows to Linux (To be spesific Debian based Pardus distro: Pardus 17.5 UVD XFCE (64-bit)). Normally I was using Ctrl + Number (1 to 8) to browse between tabs. Now It doesn't work. According to Firefox Keyboard shortcuts page( http://mzl.la/16NAhwz ) It says Alt + Number. Does this feature different on Windows and Linux? If there's a way to switch back to Ctrl it would be really nice. I'm really used to use this way. Firefox version: 60.7.0esr (64 bit)

Top sites won't populate. When I open a new tab the frames for each of the top sites are sitting there but I can't get any site to populate in it. Normally, the sites I visit most often just automatically populate into it. But somehow that stopped happening and now they're all blank. Even if I tried to manually populate a site into the frame by clicking on "Add top site" option, and then I enter the URL and click add, nothing happens. It just stays blank. I've clicked the little cogwheel up the top and selected Top Sites by clicking in the box. But nothing will populate in the boxes. What's going on?i if I hover the mouse over each of the frames, the top right corner shows like a little pencil sign or something. and when I put my mouse over that it says "edit this site".that brings up "New top site", inviting me to enter the URL.. But like I say, if I enter the information of the URL, it won't populate. I'm stumped

Both sites worked fine until this morning. I checked via Chrome and Brave and both websites work fine under those browsers so I'm not sure why these sites will no longer load. Other websites will open with Firefox, just not YouTube or Facebook. Other websites with embedded YT videos will load, but the videos will not appear.

I updated my anti-virus (Avast!) and also tried disabling and then removing my VPN extension from Firefox and restarting the PC but the websites still won't load.

I understand Firefox defaults to a standard window size when privacy.resistsFingerprinting is turned on, but it is not a great size. To avoid the privacy concerns, what if Firefox remembered the size I set the window to, but then when it launches a new window, it varies the size randomly but +/- 10 pixels, so it becomes harder to pinpoint as a unique characteristic tied to one user?

I have tried the various suggestions concerning Firefox saving windows settings including deleting xulstore.json, doing a full restore and total fresh install. After doing any of those, Firefox will open in a full (normal) window. After exiting and reopening Firefox, it goes back to opening in a half screen window. I am running Windows 7 Pro. No other browsers that I use have this issue. Firefox was okay until I upgraded to version 66 and beyond. I haven't gone back to version 65 to see if the issue exist there as well. I do run a modified pref.js that blocks and stops items based on my preferences. The window settings problem exists even if I would do no modifications to the pref.js file.
