I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

Happened once a while back but happened again today. Firefox Sync asked me to reconnect, which I did. After that reconnection, and even if "password" is checked in the parameters, all my passwords have disappeared. I do also have Firefox on my phone, which have all my passwords from before the first instance it occured, but it never synchronized to Firefox on my computer. No error messages appears when synchronizing, and everything seems to be normal. Any way to correct the non-synchronization of passwords ? Is there something I'm doing wrong ? Thanks.

I have AVAST running on my computer in passive mode; I simply have not bothered to remove it, fearing screwing something up. Now, AVAST has stripped all my saved passwords from FIREFOX. Can I load these back into Firefox from my renegade AVAST?

Hi. I’ve been using Firefox for like 20 years and for some reason this time on my new iPhone it wants me to authenticate using my app Authy. Because they do not have a direct link to a Firefox icon etc.… I created a new miscellaneous one as pertheir options and named it Firefox. However when it asked me to use the Authy to finalize the setup after putting in the correct password it never works. It states something like incorrect authentication code. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

Entry of password characters seems to work but login deemd incorrect, IE11 works fine eg Capita pension and Bank of Ireland sites- always.

Two sites: UK Teachers Pension (Capita) and Bank Of Ireland (other sites fine), ask for entry of particular characters from password/PIN (eg 3rd, 5th, 7th) into boxes on log-in page. Entry seems to go fine but on submission: 'incorrect...try again...2 tries remaining'. Using IE11 works fine.

Bank of Ireland was getting reports of this last year but the issue persists, the pension site was ok last year but not now.

Win 7-32 bit, with up to date FF does this as does win 7-64 bit machine with FF 52.6.0 ESR.

uMatrix is installed but disabling filtering makes no difference: FF fails with these sites IE11 works. Has FF deprecated something (Java?) that some sites still use?

I've got Mozilla-Plugins like LastPass and NordVpn, where I can enter my username or my email account at first, but each time I try to switch to the next box , where I should be able to enter my Password, either by cursor or tab the Plugin window closes instantly.

I have already tried it with every other plugin disabled to pinpoint if it's maybe a problem another plugin causes, but that's not it.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04 LTS

So every idea is appreciated!

How can I export my passwords from firefox sync (not regular firefox) to my computer? This is on quantum

I had lost my passwords, and had all my bookmarks on both firefox quantum, and with developer edition. Even though I think i was signed into sync, I could not get my information back. I had done no changes to my computer, and it appears this happened from an update. After searching online, I was able to get my passwords to show synch using developer edition. I am afraid to keep the passwords only using sync, as I am thinking this may happen again... I would like to have a backup file that works, so I can setup an older firefox for events in the future, with my passwords. Please let me know how to export the passwords, or bring back an option for export. If this is not possible, I may not use firefox anymore... I have been using firefox for years, and always have recommended to other people. However, I like the original firefox the best. I do not need a browser which reminds me of chrome or windows. Thank you

None of my passwords from any site from Chrome will import. Washington Post, etc. Why do you make this claim that passwords will be imported when they don't?

PRECISELY followed instructions to import bookmarks and passwords from Chrome to Firefox. Bookmarks imported, but not a single password from numerous sites!

This started happening after I had a web browser hijacker that hijacked Windows Edge. My software company did a remote session and fixed that. But, if using Firefox, at every single site I go to, even yahoo email, it keeps asking me if I want to update my logon information. I have never seen it do that before, it is like it wants me to do that so it can see my new password????? I have no reason to update my logon info, and would do that myself as I feel necessary. I completely removed Firefox, went to Mozilla main site, and downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox, and it is still asking everywhere I go. Do I have another bug in my system that is only affecting Firefox? Edge runs fine now, as does IE but I never use IE anymore. Please help. Robert

When I go into Firefox settings and click on Saved Logins, it takes several minutes for the window to open up. Afterwards, the searches are relatively fast. Deleting an item likewise takes minutes. I believe this also affects the auto-fill of passwords when Firefox first starts up.. It does not auto-fill at first.

Is there any way to optimize the saved logins database? PS: This is under Fedora Linux. Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit)

I am considering switching from chrome to firefox. While trying to import my passwords i wont get them all.

Using the import feature inside Firefox I will get about 70% of my usernames and passwords from chrome.

Why it wont import the rest makes absolutely no sense at all.

Firefox gives no option to import from a CSV or anything else but that one button.

I get the impression the whole feature is not tested properly, If Firefox wants people to switch browser this just has to work flawlessly.
