hello

since last week, my saved logins have disappared. I tried with a win10 system recovery (there were 2 timestamps available): both didn't work, linked to a problem with Firefox profile (but error message doesn't show up fully so hard to see what is wrong).

Via shadowexplorer, I was able to export the following files from previous system recovery backups: key3.db key4.db & logins.json .

If I copy these to a new (or existing profile), the logins.json file is renamed to logins.json.corrupt

I have seen that there was a similar problem with AVG-users, but I run Comodo internet security premium...

Any clues how to retrieve the logins??

thx in advance!

That's why I want to allow it permanently to save all of my passwords. How can I allow Firefox permanently to save all of my passwords ? If it is not possible, can you help me "How can I do this, by editing the ' omni.ja ' file in the 'C:\Drive' ? "

I have salvaged the key3.db, key4.db, logins.json and signons.sqlite from my old firefox profile. My understanding is that the password information is stored in these files. Can I recover my old login info using these 4 files only?

Firefox (linux-Ubuntu) will not automatically fill in login username (but does fill in password) on website "safeway.com" login page - why?

I only have this problem with safeway.com. Firefox will not save the username (email address) for my login there. It does save my password, but I always have to manually enter the username.

Recently I tried manually editing the saved passwords (under "Preferences") - the username was blank for the safeway.com entry, so I put it in. This had no effect and the username field still is not filled in for that site.

Does anyone else have this problem with the login page on Safeway.com? I am using Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) for Ubuntu, but this problem has been present for at least a couple of years.

Under privacy and security - forms and passwords - I have checked "Ask to save logins and passwords" - Many times - when visiting a new site - the dropdown that asks if I want to save - does not appear - and/or - the login is there - but the password is not saved. "Password Editor" in add-ons is not compatible with my version of Firefox - Without going crazy - there should be a way - under this setting - "privacy and security" - to Manually add a web-site with login/password. And if not - why not?

Hi. I’ve been using Firefox for like 20 years and for some reason this time on my new iPhone it wants me to authenticate using my app Authy. Because they do not have a direct link to a Firefox icon etc.… I created a new miscellaneous one as pertheir options and named it Firefox. However when it asked me to use the Authy to finalize the setup after putting in the correct password it never works. It states something like incorrect authentication code. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

I thought this might be a Windows issue, but it appears more likely to be a Firefox problem...... Almost every time Firefox updates itself on one of my several PCs (a Dell), all of my saved logins are removed.

After some checking, I found that the actual logins file had been changed from "logins.json" to "logins.json.corrupt".

Why Firefox is doing this is anybodies guess, but it may have something to do with the actual passwords themselves containing characters that it doesn't like.......

Easy resolution - find the "corrupt" file and rename it!

Using Windows Explorer, you will need to make hidden files visible, then go to (User)>Appdata>Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox>Profiles>(71r822oe.*********), then scrol down to "logins.json.corrupt" - select, rename, "logins.json", agree to the change warning, and exit. All now works as before.

(The bits in brackets will be your own name and registry entry)

Please, Mozilla - can you try and stop this happening in the first place ?

I am considering switching from chrome to firefox. While trying to import my passwords i wont get them all.

Using the import feature inside Firefox I will get about 70% of my usernames and passwords from chrome.

Why it wont import the rest makes absolutely no sense at all.

Firefox gives no option to import from a CSV or anything else but that one button.

I get the impression the whole feature is not tested properly, If Firefox wants people to switch browser this just has to work flawlessly.

I've got Mozilla-Plugins like LastPass and NordVpn, where I can enter my username or my email account at first, but each time I try to switch to the next box , where I should be able to enter my Password, either by cursor or tab the Plugin window closes instantly.

I have already tried it with every other plugin disabled to pinpoint if it's maybe a problem another plugin causes, but that's not it.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04 LTS

So every idea is appreciated!
