I am trying to change my Firefox login password. I get to the "Firefox Accounts" screen, enter my old password and the new password (twice) then click on CHANGE. Nothing happens. No confirmation of the change, no error message. It just stays on the Accounts screen.

Hello, I have 3 websites:

http://history.typeheritage.com/ http://forums.typeheritage.com/ http://bazaar.typeheritage.com/

When viewed with Chrome, all are labeled "secure." When viewed with FF, the history and forums sites are not. Instead, they return the attached message.

Unless original work designed by me, all images on all sites are type specimens or trade journal articles from sources like design patents or university libraries (google books, haithi trust, internet archive, etc.).

Can someone figure out why this is happening and tell me how to fix it?

A thousand thanks for your help, Anna

OK, so this Firefox feature worked fine on my "old" and beloved Win7 machine. I finally broke down and upgraded to a new Surface Win10 Pro machine running Firefox 81.0.1 , transferred all my old Firefox settings and saved logins, but now Firefox will not save any new logins and passwords as it did on my beloved Win7 "boat anchor."

I read through the Firefox help section and all I could find is some talk about Trend Micro security software blocking this Firefox feature. I DO NOT HAVE TREND MICRO on this new machine.

The only security software I have running is Malwarebytes 4.2.1 and of course the ever-present Microsoft Security.

So how do I get back my beloved Firefox feature: "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites?"

HELP and thanks!

The quick version of my question: Why does my Yahoo email readily open on most devices without prompting for the Primary Password? I'm not particularly tech savvy but I've looked and I haven't created any exceptions that would allow opening my email to be bypassed from the PP. Longer version: I use MF as my preferred browser and I have many websites bookmarked to which my passwords are autofilled. I work from home but I am my replacement at her office location. I was alarmed to find that when I brought up an MF browser on desktops at the office location, there were my bookmarks along with the ability for anyone to effortlessly login to a given website since the passwords were saved. to remedy, I tuned off Sync, but that didn't seem to solve the problem as my bookmarks were still exactly and easily accessible. Then I created a Primary Password on the two desktops at the remote office location, as well as several devices in my home. The puzzle is that Yahoo opens with no problem when I select that bookmark. I don't get prompted for the PP until I open another browser page. Also of concern: when I select a password protected bookmark, I can manually enter my login and see my sensitive account information if I just keep clicking on Cancel when the PP prompt appears. Is that because knowing the password "overwrites" the security of the PP?

Right now, I'm logged in my Firefox account and have everything backed up (logins and passwords, bookmarks, history, etc). Thing is, I do not remember my Firefox account password, but thankfully I am logged in and synced through 3 devices. I think, there may be a situation when some time in the future, I will be logged out one way or another.

Is there a way to see my Firefox account password, since changing password results in everything being deleted? I want to not get involved in such a hassle of exporting and importing data, if I can help it.

Thanks in advance.

Visiting this site:

https://www.kulturkritiskforum.dk/

Firefox tells me that the certificate in invalid.

"...Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.kulturkritiskforum.dk. The certificate is only valid for kulturkritiskforum.dk.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN..."

Looking at certificate tells me it is valid, and so does:

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://www.kulturkritiskforum.dk/

"...www.kulturkritiskforum.dk resolves to 18.197.157.167

Server Type: Apache

The certificate should be trusted by all major web browsers (all the correct intermediate certificates are installed)...."

And Chrome does not report any errors either.

Where is the actual problem/error?!

This lockwise related feature requires one to enter a computer password/pin etc to be able to see saved login passwords. This is something I have always wished FF had (like every other browser does) but was always told that it is not necessary or is silly since it is not very secure or some other nonsense. But is is useful since it makes snooping difficult which is good enough.

Anyway, obviously FF has come around to this viewpoint... but after finding that without warning it is no longer functioning on my browser and resetting firefox and restarts and everything, I see on the page below "This feature will be disabled for both macOS and Windows in Firefox version 76 and 77. Mozilla is planning improvements to this feature in Firefox 78."

Bizarre since according to the article it starts working in version 76. Starts working in 76 but has been disabled in 76 (plus 77 for good measure).

What? My question is why was this disabled for what's likely to be a while and is there anyway to override it? Can I bring it back with a pref change? Thanks!

I know, this has been asked before, but either the answer did not help or the addons to solve the problem were removed. In ealier versions the popup for entering the masterpassword did popup when a site asked for a password. Now it pops up some seconds after the start, usually when I'm typing an URL or a search. How to change that? May I either set the seconds somewhere after which it pops up or set FF to not steal the focus if I am typing (which is a very bad behavior!) or change it back to only ask if a site requests a password? I'm frustrated enough to disable the masterpassword which can't be the solution. Thanks in advance

I have a question about Lockwise and the integration of Monitor.

It is claimed that since version 76, Firefox alerts for vulnerable passwords and breaches.

In this article it is explained that Lockwise scans the stored passwords and warns if one of the passwords is identical to one leaked online as well as that it shows breach alerts for sites that have experienced security breaches.

I have Firefox 79, but I don't seem to get either behavior. I can see breaches for my email addresses in Monitor (where I had to manually add the email addresses). But I don't see anything in Lockwise. See the image below, for example. I created a password "abcde" for the website and nowhere does firefox tell me it's "vulnerable" or that it's been exposed elsewhere (it should at least say it's a terribly bad password).

I entered the "abcde" password in the Bitwarden plugin and it tells me (unsurprisingly) the password has been exposed "46564 times in data breaches".

This brings me to a second question: If Lockwise is unable to automatically show a warning if a password has been exposed/is vulnerable, is there an easy way to check that manually (and securely)? Bitwarden has the checkmark button right next to the password, which allows me to quickly check if a password has been exposed. Any way to replicate this in Lockwise? (To be honest, I would prefer the way it is supposed to work in Lockwise with a banner been shown automatically, instead of manually having to click, but it doesn't seem to work.)

I am a home user with win 7 OS. In the DNS over HTTPS FAQ it says that

In addition, Firefox will check for certain functions that might be affected if DoH is enabled, including:

   Are parental controls enabled?
   Is the default DNS server filtering potentially malicious content?
   Is the device managed by an organization that might have a special DNS configuration? 

If any of these tests determine that DoH might interfere with the function, DoH will not be enabled. These tests will run every time the device connects to a different network.

Is there any way for me to find out if DOH is enabled or disabled by Firefox?
