I'm using Firefox password manager, which syncs passwords on 4 PCs and 1 Android phone that I use. Getting ready to set up Primary Passwords. Once it is set on one PC, what happens when I go to use one of the other ones, where PP is not set yet? Don't need lock outs or other hassles that I see many users struggle with. Thanks!

Firefox 123.0.1 W10 Pro.

Recent refresh of Firefox, suggested by Mozilla, due to some HTTP conflict.

Refresh created a new profile and backed up/saved old profile. Now can not get auto login or auto fill to work. Will not stay logged in when leaving a page.

Can I remove the new profile and use the old one?

I use a privoxy hosted on my home server to route Firefox traffic through a VPN. It usually works fine, but I am trying to set a few services to bypass the proxy using the "No proxy for" box in the Firefox connection settings - specifically streaming sites like netflix, hulu, and plex. Despite putting these domains in the "no proxy for" box, the proxy still seems to be applied - ie. Netflix fails to stream as it would if I were connecting through the VPN.

To test, I also tried adding "whatismyipaddress.com" to the "no proxy for" box, and this did successfully bypass the vpn (showing my real IP), so it is working to some degree. I can also confirm that that site shows my vpn IP when it is not on the whitelist.

I assume that these streaming services are connecting to a different domain when streaming video, which is not on the whitelist to bypass the proxy because I have not added them. Does anyone know if this is the case, and if so, how I could fix the issue?

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I'm encountering an issue specifically on MediaWiki sites, like this one, where the "Special:UserRights" page behaves strangely. Whenever I try to type in the input area, the browser suggests "Manage Password" even though it's not a relevant action on this page.

I'm using Firefox 123.00 and this happens on both my Linux (Ubuntu 22.04) and Windows 11 OS. I don't have any password manager extensions installed.

While this might seem like a minor inconvenience, it's quite disruptive to the workflow when managing user rights on MediaWiki sites.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there a known solution or workaround to prevent the "Manage Password" suggestion from appearing on the "Special:UserRights" page?

Thanks in advance for any help!

My Firefox has gotten so buggy lately I can't use it. I'm writing from Edge. THere are numerous issues. The sign in process got messed up a couple months ago. IT asks for email address, then doesn't provide password screen option, takes forever to send email, and then sometimes repeats itself. Tabs crash and clicks fail to work randomly. Out of desperation I reset my Firefox password and that seemed to help temporarily, but not enough. So what's happened and how to fix??? Thanks.

I cannot find a way to add websites to the location permissions in Firefox Windows PC. I can easily get to the "Location Permissions settings " but there is no way to add, only remove. When I display the access icon in the URL address bar, it shows " you have granted the website additional permissions" , but the site does not display in the FF Settings-Location Box, and the target website does allow me access based on location. Is there another area where location is restricted? would appreciate some help, thx.

Hi there,

Using up to date Firefox on a Mac, London UK. Recently returned from travel in Japan. The bank cards auto-fill stopped working & Auto-fill does not appear in Privacy Settings (it is not there – no need to request a check please:)?

Spent 2 hours on Mozilla support/community etc. No answers – including 'make a new profile'...(& why - won' that affect history etc)?

Would be very grateful for any help please?

With thanks,

No support of 64bit PKCS#11 drivers for signing devices (i.e. smart cards) on 64bit Firefox

Hi, this is the same issue as as described here for Mozilla Thunderbird: 64bit Thunderbird issues with 64bit PKCS#11 drivers

– Firefox 122.0 (64-bit) – Windows 11 Pro 64bit (– Thunderbird 64bit)

Even though, I use a 64bit version of Firefox, it is not able to load any 64bit PKCS#11 module for security devices. Tried on several different PCs and several different 64bit PKCS#11 drivers for different smart cards.

When I try to load e.g. C:\Windows\SysWOW64\eop2v1czep11.dll for the Czech eID, it returns "Unable to add module". When I do the same from C:\Windows\System32\eop2v1czep11.dll, it works.

The issue is that some issuers of qualified and commercial certificates (like e.g. Komerční banka) do not issue a 32bit version of PKCS#11 drivers for their smart cards anymore and the only driver available is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\mopkcs11.dll, which cannot be loaded by Firefox or Thunderbird either.

I don't see a problem in implementing the support for 64bit PKCS drivers in a 64bit browser and a 64bit email client. And if it does have the support, then there is something wrong going on.

I can connect to "Site A" without errors using my backup browser, MS Edge Version 121.0.2277.83 (Official build) (64-bit).

This seem to be a Firefox related problem.
