Invalid e-mail and/or password is the error message I got... the people I make a payment to were able to log into my account so this is a firewall, security thing on my computer. Recently, I have had to "ok" all of my plug-ins and this is strange... there is nothing wrong with my email or password... something is blocking me... thanks

Every day we open web site and enter username, password and push button login (or using autofill). It take 10 - 15 sec. per site and annoying step every day or week we enter again and again and push login. Firefox may resolve that issue simple replace by automatic way by provide "User profile" ideology.

For example web site want to register new user and ask JavaScript to provide information. Firefox popup window like it now doing with audio, subscription and other feature. User select "User profile" and security rights (bio. address, payment) and no more.

This approach already provided in some Apple iPhone application you reinstall application and application get you Apple ID account and provide access to you account.

Using web site now it simple we no more login and password and already using accounts store in FireFox accounts.

P.S. How about Web Autorization API it is complete or is still draft?

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.

Websites prohibit password saving

Some websites do not allow for passwords to be saved for security reasons. If you have followed the steps above, but are still not prompted to save a password when logging in to a certain website, that site may have disabled password saving.

I try to get my passwords to fit into a cryptic system. Silly me. Firefox updated itself today and wanted me to enter my google password before doing anything. Since my Google password is a cookie, and Firefox is yet another cookie it became a labyrinthine task. Sorry!. Beyond that, Firefox would not accept a security question (the answer to which is precyberhistoristorical). That is my history, which is not much documented. I wish that we didn't need to lose everything as we go about the task of changing passwords all the time. I am about to turn 60, and I love firefox!
