Browser Chrome password saved in plain text while Firefox and safari stored password in encrypted which I have done using CryptoJS

In Chrome browser save password stored in plain text while Firefox and safari stored password in my encrypted which converted using CryptoJS before submitting the form.

Username,Password and Client key are convert into MD5 and SHA1 using CryptoJS and concatenate all those strings and assign to password field and then submit the form when I do login in Chrome that time save password prompt show original password(plain text) while I login in Firefox that time save password prompt show as converted string in password field instead of plain text password.

I want to store password in plain text instead of converted string in sha1 and md5.

Can you please help here how I can fix this issue.

I work at a public library. And we have Firefox installed on all of our public computers. One of those computers is not forgetting a particular patron's login information for Yahoo Mail.

We've set our public computers for Firefox to clear out Cookies, Cache, Active Logins, Forms & Search History, Browsing & Download History, Saved Passwords AND Site Preferences when it closes. We use custom privacy settings, telling Firefox NOT to remember Browsing & Download history, as well as Form & Search History.

We've tried clearing ALL History, we've cleared all saved passwords. Nothing helps. Every time anyone goes to login for Yahoo on that computer, the other patron's login information is right there (the password is shown as dots, of course, but it's still there).

Anyone have any ideas on how to clear that information? Any help would be much appreciated.

Just finished turning off Firefox's auto updates on all of my computers. Because I had to learn to get in the habit of copying my Firefox profile about once a month. Why? Because I keep losing my settings! Mainly my passwords. This is now the 3rd update in a row that has dropped my passwords. 2nd time on that computer. (Windows 8.1) .

Please figure out why this occurs. (I can't be the only one). If it was always the same computer, I would point at it. But, the other 2 are Windows 7.

OR................ maybe...........instead of the profile being updated and possibly losing files, or over writing them. At the start of the update, say it makes a backup? Just in case v. 36,37,38,39,40,41,42.................cause the same issue. At least then if the passwords are the only issue, grab the 2 files and drop them back in the profile. done.


I hate sounding like a douche, just really freakin annoyed.

I had been using numerous sites where I my username and password was appropriately retained using Firefox 36.0.4. With the update to 37.0.4, all this failed. My stored usernames and passwords failed. Deleting these credentials would not work - I would enter them, the dialogue about whether to store these would flash in the upper left of the browser window, and I would be asked for my credentials again. Happened on multiple sites on different servers. Deleting profile and reinstalling V37.0.4 did not fix. The only solution was to scrub out V37.0.4 and reinstall the prior V36.0.4. How to communicate this to the Firefox developers.

Firefox Sync is missing saved logins (fetch data correctly but don't use it)

Hi,

I installed Firefox Nightly (56.0a1 (2017-07-22) (64-bit)) and enabled sync for bookmarks and passwords. Bookmarks were synced correctly, but not the passwords.

I can see a the file logins.json in my profile folder, with the logins content. But if I go to Preferences->Security->Saved Logins the list is empty. Also, logins form field are not auto filled.

None content was imported manually. Nightly somehow synced and downloaded the logins.json, but apparently it's not using it.

I already did this exact same process (reinstall in new machine + sync) without any problem, except for this time/version. May it be a bug?

I already tried some forum solutions: connect/reconnect account; delete signedInUser.json; restarting; etc. Everytime the logins.json is correctly fetched from the web with the content, or the bookmarks are synced correctly, but Nightly apparently is not 'using' the contents of this file.

Thank you,

Mario

When firefox asked if I wanted to update to the newest version, I answered NO! I had already discovered on my other computer that if I allowed the update, I would lose my ability to restore the previous session, so I wanted to save the tabs so I could reload them. I also lost all of the saved passwords on my other computer and didn't want the same thing to happen on my work computer. But despite answering NO. Firefox updated anyway, and I have lost days of work. How do I get it back? Jack

Firefox will save and update logins and passwords just fine. But recently it will not prompt me to save any logins/passwords for GoDaddy. I am a web designer and really love the user/password save feature, getting to be a pain for me since it won't save. Any work around here? Can I manually add to my profile or something? I am using the most recent firefox version and windows 10 on a PC.

thanks, Kristi

I'm attempting to switch from using Safari and Chrome to using just Firefox. I'm running the newest Firefox, and so far am pretty pleased. I just need to find a way to import logins/passwords from Safari and Chrome, or from LastPass.

I found a support topic showing that the LastPass addon has an Import to Firefox feature, but this is no longer true. Also no longer true is this support article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_managing-multiple-accounts-for-a-site) showing the Import... button in the Password Manager.

When I fired up Firefox, I chose to import data from other browsers, but this did not include logins, apparently.

I only have this problem with safeway.com. Firefox will not save the username (email address) for my login there. It does save my password, but I always have to manually enter the username.

Recently I tried manually editing the saved passwords (under "Preferences") - the username was blank for the safeway.com entry, so I put it in. This had no effect and the username field still is not filled in for that site.

Does anyone else have this problem with the login page on Safeway.com? I am using Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) for Ubuntu, but this problem has been present for at least a couple of years.

Hey guys,

I need some help with the "authentication required prompt" box. I need to disable it for one of my cpanel login pages but, I can't find an answer anywhere that works. As you can see from the attached images the box doesn't always show up. But as guessed it only shows up on the one login page that I do not want it to.

Any help will be greatly appreciated
