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

I'm asking if it's possible for Firefox to Not Share USER Personal Data with Google Chrome. I have set all my preferences in Firefox browser to not share, be secure, use private browser, etc. to a the extent possible based on settings. I don't have "location services" turned on on my Mac or Ipad mini and yet some things open up and they know where I am. I feel like I've lost any ability to maintain privacy and that I feel I cannot control it as even setting up settings, I'm aware that some coding only gives impression your safe but in fact YOU ARE NOT!! I am security conceous to a fault and yet I don't feel safe on either device. Can Mozilla/Firefox stop sending user data to Google Chrome to help with keeping privacy user personal data. I saw an article recently that says they are testing .05 of their users to in effect "from MY PERSONAL OPINION" they are stealing this data for them to use WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Government protections are not kept up to speed and using a computer these days seems to insist that I give up my personal rights to MY DATA. It's ALWAYS MY DATA and not theirs... Using a "any service" does not make it your data but they do have a responsibility to keep it safe and it should not be shared out side MY express consent. It seems we are losing that ability more and more. So I'm asking if Mozilla can stop sharing USER PERSONAL DATA with Google Chrome?

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.

Hi all,

Recently, everytime I go to download a file, firefox is sending my download to my "temp/local" file and I can't retrieve my downloads. I don't think I changed anything on my laptop, it seems that one day - it just switched to sending my downloads to my temp/local folder.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can return this back to letting me "Open the file" and then "saving" it to my desktop - like I previously was doing?

I've been on google checking everything...but I felt like I wasgoing down a rabbit hole and changing this and that - and I'm afraid it might make things worse.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

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.

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.

Thank You, Kalidhas P

A cert on an application we mange expired. OK. So I went to that site knowing I would have to tell FF to accept the cert even though it expired. However, I couldn't find anything under 'advanced' to accept the cert. This is with 90.0.2. Did something recently change where that's no longer allowed?

I had to resort to using a different browser so I can access the app to install a new cert.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Firefox 90.0.2 on Windows 10 was installed on 7/27/2021 which is about when this started.

Firefox is suddenly asking for master password twice, while running, not at startup. I leave Firefox running at night. I find two password dialogs when I log in in the morning. I'm not sure if they display at a certain time (e.g. midnight), or if it is a result of the system going into sleep and waking.

When Firefox starts or restarts, it displays one master password as expected.

I found this article from two years ago , but the "hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug" is not found in about:debug or in profiles.

I have not installed any add-ons recently. Last Windows update was KB5004237 installed on 7/18.

Is it Firefox? What else could be causing this problem?
