Hi, for some reason Firefox doesn't remember my passwords or won't display saved passwords. I've been through all the standard suggestions, checked all the settings and still no joy. Should I un- and re-install? It does keep asking for my master password (at every opportunity) but entering this makes no difference - it keeps asking and then, when I cancel, lets me proceed anyway!

Not sure what's going on...

Thanks

I am unable to logon to secure websites using known good logon information. The information has been successfully used for a long time with Internet Explorer. The Mozilla support site "Fix login issues on websites that require a username and password" procedures have not helped. In each case, the secure websites report that incorrect logon information has been provided. I then switch to IE and use the same information and the logon is successful.

When I view list of passwords and usernames I find "double entries" meaning the same username and password for the same site stored twice. Maybe this is because of the "refresh" (should be called deliberate crash) I did (never again) that resulted in an hour long unscheduled interruption while I scrambled to find the solution to restore settings?

I had been using numerous sites where I my username and password was appropriately retained using Firefox 36.0.4. With the update to 37.0.4, all this failed. My stored usernames and passwords failed. Deleting these credentials would not work - I would enter them, the dialogue about whether to store these would flash in the upper left of the browser window, and I would be asked for my credentials again. Happened on multiple sites on different servers. Deleting profile and reinstalling V37.0.4 did not fix. The only solution was to scrub out V37.0.4 and reinstall the prior V36.0.4. How to communicate this to the Firefox developers.

I've had to create a new account just to pose this question. I'd forgotten my previous account's password on mozilla support so went through the process of setting a new one. But I couldn't login using it. I tried 3 times and still couldn't login.

Is there a time lag between setting new passwords and them being recognised on the system? It's been 24 hours now at least.

Hi Knowledgeable folks @ Firefox, Could you tell me how it is possible that I have a password saved for my Hotmail account, but it doesn't appear in the list of saved passwords? I know it is saved because when I click on the Outlook link it opens up Hotmail, and I can access my emails. How do I recover my password without going to Hotmail and resetting? THANK YOU!
