On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

Problem One: 1Password extension not working for me. I installed Firefox and made it my primary browser. Extensions have been a disaster for me. First I tried adding the 1 Password extension. I did this because when I tried opening a page from 1 Password uninstalled on the browser, it didn't l as it should (has always done so with Safari). I had to open 1Password separately, and copy the information, which is tedious.

So I installed the 1Password Extension on Firefox. It didn't work unless I'd opened the desktop version of 1Password, it still didn't open and fill.

So I removed the extension. I then decided to give it another try. The extension shows up on Firefox. But now it has a little lock on the icon. The problem is that clicking on the icon doesn't open anything! I've rebooted the computer, and only reinstalled the 1Password extension. The same problem occurs, then, without clicking on the problematic icon, I reboot the computer again. It hasn't helped.

PROBLEM TWO: I'm having an additional problem with extensions. When I click on the extension for Pocket (for instance), the program opens, but fails to recognize that I have a paid subscription, asking me to upgrade. This is true for other sites I have subscriptions to, limiting me using the "free" version, which limits what I can open as well as what I can save.

It sounds unbelievable, but that's what's happened to me. I'm using enhanced tracking protection for all sites. Macbook Pro ; Catalina OS 10.15.7 (19H15) - most recent version Max OS

I appreciate any help you can give me. This is way over my head! I've tried everything I can think of, except for uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

Hello

The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

https://prod-tp.sumo.mozit.cloud/en-US/questions/1271509#question-reply

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

I have searched every support post that has anything remotely to do with my problem. I have tried booting in safe mode, downloading Firefox ESR and performing folder acrobatics with key3 and key4 files, I have disabled my anti-virus software. To no avail.

This morning, I was forced to log back in to my Firefox Browser "due to security reasons" and when I did all of my logins and passwords were gone. if I go to about:protections and scroll to the bottom of the page, Firefox Lockwise tells me that I have 158 passwords saved securely. But if I go to Logins & Passwords, there are only the 5 passwords that I have saved today since the issue began.

I NEED HELP!!!!!

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.

Hello! Today I power on my computer and for some reason my Firefox account was not configured on the browser. I just logged in with my Firefox account and wait until it finishes syncing all. After a few minutes it finished "correctly". I said "Correctly" because I was very surprised when I detect that all my saved passwords were not being sync. I tried with another computer that has the same Firefox account and it has all the passwords, but nothing appears on my computer. I tried several things like restart computer, logout and login again, checked if key.db file exists on my home, etc but nothing works. I just found one difference between the devices (both are Linux and bot are Fedora): On the device that I can see all the passwords Firefox version is 73. On the device that I described before that I cannot see any password Firefox version is 76. Can it be affecting the sync? I'm worried about to update Firefox on the devices that passwords are being displayed and lost it on both devices.

My OS is Fedora 31 and my firefox version is 76.

Thanks!

Changed my password in lockwise to a generated one on my main pc due to a site breach elsewhere. When I try to login firefox to my laptop to sync it fails because it had the old password. When I go in to password and logins on the desktop, it still shows the old password. If I go to lockwise or my account on the desktop and try to log in to my settings, it uses my old account password and tells me wrong password.

But, if I close out firefox on the desktop, then reopen, I am able to access all my other passwords and logins, except changing things in accounts.firefox.com. I do not have a copy of the generated password in lockwise.

How do I fix this?

On my PC with Firefox, I'm trying to login to PNC online banking from this site: www.onlinebanking.pnc.com. If I manually enter the username and password, the Sign in button becomes active, and I can login successfully. But, for this site only, Firefox is not automatically filling the username and password. I have to tap the username field and then select the username from a drop down list of the synced logins. But after I do, the Sign in button remains grayed out and not clickable. For what it's worth, on other websites, Firefox autofills the username and password without me manually selecting it. And I don't have any problems logging in to those websites. But of course, I have none of these problems with Chrome.

As a side note, the Firefox Android browser won't even display a drop down list of synced logins when I tap the username field on www.onlinebanking.pnc.com. Nothing happens when I tap the field. And I did confirm that the login was already synced in the login storage. Again, this problem does not happen with the Chrome Android browser.

I have reinstalled Firefox and also ran it in safe mode, with no luck. How can I fix these problems? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit).

Are there settings like a checklist for Uppercase, Lowercase, Numbers, Symbols, Length ? Sometimes I want a more readable password other times sites aren't accepting a password with/without some of these defined. Also why isn't there a button in the "about:logins" (or a normal dropdown context menu item) to just generate a password in any field, because sometimes it doesn't work for some fields - like changing a password, or I need to generate it separately.

I'm hoping to get these back, because there were a lot... :( Thanks for any advice.
