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

Hello,

I have been experiencing issues with the rendering of the navigation menu to the left of https://www.youtube.com/. This problem only occurs when I am signed into an account. I have not been able to replicate it when not signed into YouTube. Normally when I power on my computer and open YouTube, it renders just fine until I refresh the page or click a video then go back to the home page

So far I have tried to:

  • Refresh the page
  • Clear all cookies, cache and data
  • Disable all my extensions
  • Go into incognito and sign into either one of my accounts (problem occurred on both)
  • Relaunch Firefox and restart my computer
  • Check for updates on my computer and for Firefox (everything is up to date)
  • Try the beta of Firefox (uninstalled the beta once I found the same problem)

Unfortunately, non of these solutions have worked and I did test this in two different browsers (edge and chrome) where it successfully rendered it both times. I have included a screenshot that shows what I mean by not rendering.

Thank you for your time

Firefox will not load certain websites while other browsers have no issue.

Firefox(64.0) has issues loading OWA webmail and my university's academic sites. Logging into office.com is fine, but when opening the actual outlook webmail it loops trying to authenticate. It also has issues loading academic sites and will not let me even log in to another site. The site that doesn't log in will take credentials, but then just refreshes the page and then asks for credentials again. The other site will load but in a broken state with a weird loading icon at the top that I've never seen and is not present on other browsers on this system.

This is a fresh install of windows 10 educational and is completely up to date. I have a laptop with Firefox 64.0 installed and it has no issues loading these sites.

I'm lost. I've tried everything I can think of. Cleared cache, tried in safemode w/ no addons, reinstalled, rebooted after reinstall, enabled ipv6 dns, ensured windows is up to date, rebooted router, flushed dns...

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I cannot change my primary email. I followed your instructions to make my secondary email my primary email. When I saw that I had no secondary email filled in I tried to add the one I usually use but the message said this account already exists. I know it does because I have been sent messages to that (the secondary email) when there was a problem. I'm stuck. I have no idea what to do.

I saw the article by Alice Wyman regarding this issue. What seems odd about my situation it just really started last week. When I shut down at the end of the session I always close the browser before I power off. It doesn't happen all the time about 30-40% of the time. I've also notice that when I run CCleaner I will get the message that FF is open and needs to be closed , again, about 30-40% of the time. I've never had this issue with Chrome. So I'm wondering what is different or what may have changed regarding my issue? I look foward to anyone's comments. Thanks

Today, I was doing some work from home. I had my gmail tab open and was logged in. I got board and decided to take a break and opened a new tab for youtube. I quickly noticed that it had already logged me in with the gmail account I was using. I logged out of the youtube account on its tab and switched back to my gmail to find it had logged me out there as well. How do I stop this? This may be a minor problem, but when I go surfing on youtube I like to start from scratch so to speak, their suggestions from my logged in status only show things I'm "interested in". Sometimes I like to learn new things...

If you can help me, thank you in advance, Chturga

Hello, all together. I use Firefox Quantum 64.0 (64-Bit).

Since some weeks the way a new tab opens has changed. A new tab shows the visited websites in icons. Now they show not only a symbol, but the content of the website. But that's too small to recognize, is indistinguishable and for me any help. I'd prefer just the icon, without any content. Do you know if the former status can be restored? Thanks for your answers.
