I have my firefox account on 2 computers. In one of the two, I've suddenly lost all my saved passwords. I noticed that after a firefox update, there's an extra installation folder (now at C:\Program Files(x86) and the "old" installation was at C:\Program Files. How do I copy the saved passwords file from one folder to another? By the way, all my saved passwords are shown perfectly on the other computer... is there a way to migrate them?

Thanks

I don't know why - possibly after a firefox update to 49.0.2? But Firefox on Windows 10 is no longer saving or using my saved passwords. When I try to display saved logins, there are none showing. However, I do have intact key3.db and logins.json files, and I can see in logins.json that there are lots of logins stored in there. So I'm sure the data are there, but just not being read.

Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. Refresh didn't help. Synch seems to connect, but doesn't help. Isn't there some command to force the browser to read the saved logins file?

This is similar but different than my earlier question. On one computer when I open Firefox it automatically logs me into my home page (a Yahoo mail account.) When I open a new tab to my gmail login it comes up with my user name already filled in. All I have to do is click on NEXT and it goes to the sign in page with my password filled in. I can't get firefox on my my other computer to do this. My home page comes up with my user name filled in, but I have to manually go through the login process. When I open gmail in a new tab, I can't do anything except: 1. hit ENTER and get an error message, then click in the username box, or 2. re-click on the gmail icon to re-open the tab. Once I have done either of these the page comes up with two login names -the correct one and some weird one. (I haven't been able to get rid of the weird name, either.) I'd like to be able to set things so Firefox will do the same on this computer as it does on the other one.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have exactly the same problem found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261967 BUT, I'm using firefox 67.0.2 on linux (opensuse leap 15.0) and I have no antivirus running. Also the workaround does not fix the problem. I tried to rename the logins.json corrupted into logins.json (I think the file is still ok, since I looked inside with a text editor (Kate) and I found all my saved "hostname"). No way to reload my saved logins into firefox. Every time I restart firefox with the correct logins.json (the old one renamed) it does not connect to sync and it told me to re-connect to sync. Then, it rename the logins.json and create another file with no saved logins. Please help Thanks

Every day we open web site and enter username, password and push button login (or using autofill). It take 10 - 15 sec. per site and annoying step every day or week we enter again and again and push login. Firefox may resolve that issue simple replace by automatic way by provide "User profile" ideology.

For example web site want to register new user and ask JavaScript to provide information. Firefox popup window like it now doing with audio, subscription and other feature. User select "User profile" and security rights (bio. address, payment) and no more.

This approach already provided in some Apple iPhone application you reinstall application and application get you Apple ID account and provide access to you account.

Using web site now it simple we no more login and password and already using accounts store in FireFox accounts.

P.S. How about Web Autorization API it is complete or is still draft?

I am trying to figure out why I cannot get my web page to prompt me to save my username and password. This is the information I got back when attempting to debug the password manager, but I dont know what it means:

The character encoding of the HTML document was not declared. The document will render with garbled text in some browser configurations if the document contains characters from outside the US-ASCII range. The character encoding of the page must be declared in the document or in the transfer protocol.

index.php Login Manager (content): onFormPassword for https://bigvinnys.quikorder.com/php/BIGVINNYS/m/index.php Login Manager: Counting logins matching host: https://bigvinnys.quikorder.com formSubmitURL: httpRealm: null PwMgr json: _searchLogins: returning 0 logins PwMgr json: _countLogins: counted logins: 0 Login Manager: Getting a list of all disabled hosts PwMgr json: _getAllDisabledHosts: returning 2 disabled hosts. Login Manager: Getting a list of all logins PwMgr json: _searchLogins: returning 0 logins PwMgr json: _getAllLogins: returning 0 logins.

Does this mean the password manager could not find a username/password field or something different?

Even with the check in the box to remember, Firefox will not remember user name or password for any web site I log into. It will ask me if I want it to remember, to which I click remember. but it never show's up in my Saved Password List, and it never remembers user name or password.

I have followed the support links and went over in detail multiple times.

This is a new setup, on windows 10 pro and FF 43, Vipre internet security. I did look at vipre but didnt see anything about saving passwords in a browser. Edge, and Chrome will remember them. Just firefox wont. so it dont appear to be an outside force causing the problem.

I tried setting a master password. it remembered that, but didnt change anything. so I removed the master password.

Thanks in advance! Tom

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
