many logins & passwords were lost after last update
Automatic login and passwords were lost after the last firefox update. Or should I say would not work until I re-entered them.
A search found they were still there, plus the new entries I saved.
Other logins were lost totally, no passwords were lost.
I did send an immediate report to tech support but heard nothing.
Is it safe to update the new version or am I having to re-enter my logins and passwords again.
I have used firefox for many years as my main browser, I mostly only want to use a different browser when I want to open two different email accounts.

Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie.
If a website decides to invalidate such a remember-me cookie after noticing an update (e.g. 6.0.1 to 7.0.1) then you will have to re-enter your credentials to create a new cookie.
