Quantum in its most recent versions has simply stopped prompting for new or changed passwords on Mac OS X, even though all the correct boxes are ticked or unticked. This is really annoying as my memory is failing and I count on the password manager to save and update all my passwords. The ones which were saved in past versions of Firefox are still there, but anything that is from a new website or has been changed isn't. I can mostly change the updated ones manually, but can't put in new websites and their passwords myself. What am I doing wrong?

Even with the check in the box to remember, Firefox will not remember user name or password for any web site I log into. It will ask me if I want it to remember, to which I click remember. but it never show's up in my Saved Password List, and it never remembers user name or password.

I have followed the support links and went over in detail multiple times.

This is a new setup, on windows 10 pro and FF 43, Vipre internet security. I did look at vipre but didnt see anything about saving passwords in a browser. Edge, and Chrome will remember them. Just firefox wont. so it dont appear to be an outside force causing the problem.

I tried setting a master password. it remembered that, but didnt change anything. so I removed the master password.

Thanks in advance! Tom

Completely out of the blue about 15 minutes ago, Firefox stopped autofilling my passwords.

My passwords are still saved in saved logins under Firefox preferences, but that's not what I'm talking about.

I'm talking about logging into a website and my password field isn't automatically filled anymore for any websites. And I don't don't know why!

I've restarted my browser, emptied cache, restarted my computer, and downloaded the latest version of Firefox, but nothing.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Firefox Sync is missing saved logins (fetch data correctly but don't use it)

Hi,

I installed Firefox Nightly (56.0a1 (2017-07-22) (64-bit)) and enabled sync for bookmarks and passwords. Bookmarks were synced correctly, but not the passwords.

I can see a the file logins.json in my profile folder, with the logins content. But if I go to Preferences->Security->Saved Logins the list is empty. Also, logins form field are not auto filled.

None content was imported manually. Nightly somehow synced and downloaded the logins.json, but apparently it's not using it.

I already did this exact same process (reinstall in new machine + sync) without any problem, except for this time/version. May it be a bug?

I already tried some forum solutions: connect/reconnect account; delete signedInUser.json; restarting; etc. Everytime the logins.json is correctly fetched from the web with the content, or the bookmarks are synced correctly, but Nightly apparently is not 'using' the contents of this file.

Thank you,

Mario

Hello Firefox! somehow you've made it so that my login information isn't held at forums.pelicanparts.com, a web forum that I go to and participate in at least 10 times per day if not 20. I can't keep reentering my username and password, csubmitting and then having to go back to where I am supposed to be. Make a workaround that I can turn your insecure warning system off for this site. I am sure it's a much needed system but also there are a ton of people that are fine with insecure passwords. Please send me a way to fix this ASAP. Thank you!

So after a recent update on my firefox Dev Edition (42.0a2) it wiped my browser without my knowledge and transferred 'old' information to an "Old Firefox" folder on my desktop. I've gotten some of it back but my saved passwords won't transfer. I copy the files from the old folder into my directory but it doesn't show up in browser, nor do any of the passwords autocomplete.

I have all passwords and log in info saved to firefox so it wil auto fill in usernames and passwords.

PROBLEM: On several sites ,even though it has all the info saved,and shows it in "saved logins",it refuses to enter anything in the username space making it immpossible to log into sites without doing it manually. Once I enter the username it fills in the passwords but this is just not acceptable and makes the browser useless to me as it makes everything a huge hasle just to log into a site.

Is there anyway to fix this besides going back to chrome???

I have my firefox account on 2 computers. In one of the two, I've suddenly lost all my saved passwords. I noticed that after a firefox update, there's an extra installation folder (now at C:\Program Files(x86) and the "old" installation was at C:\Program Files. How do I copy the saved passwords file from one folder to another? By the way, all my saved passwords are shown perfectly on the other computer... is there a way to migrate them?
