I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

Hi,

After an update on Firefox 87.0 the pop-up exceptions defined are not working in private mode. A yellow bar appears that tells me that prevent the popups. If I choose to allow the popups with the button on the left of url then the url is added on exceptions/allowed window with a ^privateBrowsingId=1 marked in the url. However this is not persisted on a next run of firefox on private mode.

If someone have setup exceptions is there for a reason and should not be broken in private mode. I also cannot add ^privateBrowsingId=1 on my own in the url on the exceptions, as it appeared as %5 in exceptions and it does not work to allow pop-up.

Thanks

Hello mozilla support. Firstly I apologize for my english. I love Firefox and using him for many years this time i run on 64bit version number 88.0. I recently discover problem with my saved passwords in Firefox and i mean this broke my or everyone privacy using feature of saving passwords by Firefox. After some time past installation of antivirus program Avast on my desktop PC i was surprised with new installed program on my desktop named Avast Secure Browser. I ran this program first time and without any his any question he show up in front of meon desktop. I discover in his settings that all my passwords saved in Firefox was succesfully decrypted because when i click on the eye icon my password was showed up as he is in firefox. Then i search for a file in my user profile where the Avast Secure Browser has my passwords stored and then check this file on all other user profiles on my PC where nobody not even once run this Avast Secure Browser but all passwords was already prepared for them in that file on all user accounts without any grant or approval by other users during their work on PC. I am only man which administrate this PC and I dont allow Avast Secure Browser stole my passwords from Firefox. My questions is obvious. How secure is for any user which stored their passwords in Firefox before any other system application like antivirus installed on PC with platform windows? How is possible for any app simply decrypt my passwords from logins.json file? For me it is a very bad if this was allowed through maybe some function in Firefox API that can some program use, but i am not an expert on Firefox a that is why i wrote this. If a problem is Avast which use some not good practise in this app, then i immediately send him feedback. But firstly i want answer from your team.

I updated FF to version 90.0.2, & it now keeps asking me for my primary password. I've tried resetting it, & rebooting Windows 10 Pro X64, but nothing seems to help. I don't actually have to do anything, except hit Cancel, but it bothers me that FF is glitchy.

No software additions, system is stable, running Sophos anti-virus

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi! I am trying to use the Multi-Account Containers add-on in conjunction with Facebook Container and Temporary Containers add-ons.

I have DuckDuckGo set as my default search engine, and Homepage and New Tabs and Windows set to Firefox Home.

Firefox Home has no domain in the address bar, which is presumably why it is always opened in a temporary container.

I am not sure I understand the best practice to use them after reading a LOT on various sites. Aside from the default containers, I have set up specific containers, depicted in the attached image, for: -Privacy Expected (Firefox, DDG, etc). -Often used and generally trusted (labelled Suppliers, Sites I like). -General sites which I expect to visit again, and I've managed cookie settings I don't want to do again each visit due to Temporary Containers add-on deleting their cookies. -Yuk Sites I expect to track me can go in a container (again, only adding to a container so I don't have to manage their cookies each visit). -worst offenders have their own containers (Google, Microsoft, etc)

Still trying to get my head around how to set permission for add-on Read Aloud to use Google Wavenet voices, and have that permission (and "I am not a robot" Captcha) seen across non-Google pages I want to be able to be read aloud (maybe have to add that 1 page for Google Wavenet voices to an exception in Temp containers or no cointainer but at the extent of my ability to make sense of all this).

Hi. Firefox keeps asking me to enter my Primary password at random and this all started about 2 weeks ago. Most time it pops up the next day and sometimes every 2-4hrs. I rarely shutdown my system due to work related stuff but at the same time i do update my system constantly. I also use a VPN since i work from home. (P.S. It doesn't route all my traffic through the VPN, only the ones destined to the office.) What can i do to resolve this? I do plan to uninstall and reinstall Firefox but I want that to be the last solution if all else fails. Thanks.

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

Keep my FF and TB installs as separate as possible from my OS installs. Have profiles in their respective app folders on a separate partition. I boot to different VHDs or partitions for choice of OS. Using batch file to delete FF and TB parent.lock files, but still having issues. Like FF bookmarks and history being used by another another app and TB not opening at all while maxing out CPU. Surely a better way to do this without repeatedly deleting FF's security files? Like a configuration settings for multi-boot systems? Thanks

"The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."

Hi Everyone,

Environment details: OS: Windows7 (64bit) Firefox Version : 90.0.2 (64bit)

I am trying to launch Firefox as a different user on my machine and trying to open a web page which uses Widows Single sing on. I want the browser to use the Run as account credential which I used to launch the browser to be used for the Webpage authentication. Tried setting the following configs network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris and network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris but didn't worked out. Any Idea how to force the browser to use the run as credential to authenticate into a webpage page that uses windows Single sign on.
