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

This problem started with the last update (I think). I am currently running version 64.0b5 (64-bit). I try to connect to www.foxnews.comand I get a timeout. The display is:

Secure Connection Failed The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Down at the bottom of the page it says "Performing a TLS handshake to www.foxnews.com" and it never connects.

I have a number of installed extensions but can't find a way to see what permissions I granted them on install.

Also, if I update them and their requested permission changed, do I get notified? It's not very clear.

(I don't remember what they requested at the time of install, and my understanding of what those permissions mean has changed drastically since then.)

Firefox 64 changed the URL completion mapping on macOS from Command+Enter to Control+Enter, to match the mapping across all operating systems. I want to change the mapping back to Command+Enter on my Mac and I am unable to find the setting in about:config to change it. Can you tell me if there's a way to change it back?

Hi, I have an ongoing problem with reCaptcha, across multiple websites. Every time I get a Captcha challenge, I have to do it about 15-20 times. Usually on the last one it's successful and goes through. Recently though, even this does not work and every reCaptcha is failed and websites think I'm a robot. I'm definitely not getting all these captchas wrong! It is making it impossible to log in to certain websites.

This is only a problem on Firefox. Captchas work fine on Chrome and I only have to do them once. I've tried using incognito mode, refreshing Firefox and using Safe Mode, and if anything, they've made the problem worse.

I'm using windows 10 and FF 64.0 (64-bit).

When clicking on a link like this in firefox: phpstorm://open?url=file://C:\wamp\www\myproject\src\AppBundle\Controller\AppController.php&line=17

I am asked which .exe I would like to associate with this protocol, I choose phpstorm.exe.

But the app supposed to open the file (phpstorm) gives me the following error:

Cannot find file 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\phpstorm:\open?url=file:\C:\wamp\www\myproject\src\AppBundle\Controller\AppController.php&line=17'

The problem seems to be that the path is prepended with "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" How do I change this behaviour ? Thanks.

I've recently had to do a clean install of windows 10 and since then I cannot autoplay in youtube. I have unblocked adblocker, I've set autoplay to "on," I've downloaded and reinstalled firefox, installed flash again, but none of that seems to work. I'm having the same problem with South-Park Studios as well; there it simply just doesn't play anything even before my reinstall of windows. Both work in other browsers fine. Only Firefox doesn't work.
