Please help recover my many passwords. Win7 had gotten corrupted; so I had a shop install Win10.

In prep, I did a backup with the SW bundled with my USB Seagate BackupPlus. On the same drive, I did a backup with Win7's backup tool. I exported bookmarks.html and bookmarks.json to the drive being upgraded.

The shop saved & restored ONLY the tree under users/ ... and likely, not all of that. Searching what was restored yields no match for "appdata", "prefs.js", etc

Worse, the backups I took with the Win7 and Seagate tools also seem to lack the files needed to restore my many site passwords. I'm hoping you can tell me how to recover those passwords.

When I go to Truist.com, my recently merged bank, it remembers my userid OK, but fills in the password field with about 200 random ASCII characters. I tried to delete and re-establish the saved password, but Firefox either gets messes it up or more likely the web site messes it up. The result is that the true saved password in lost and the ASCII rubbish re-appears.

Work-around is to not let Firefox save the password for this site. It works A-OK with the other 150 or so passwords. Check out the screen shot attached.

Luv Firefox, even donate once in a while.

Thank you,

I recently came across a website listing adjustments to Firefox's about:config settings. These are supposedly done to help make the browser more secure. Modifications to browser.safebrowsing.phishing.enabled,and after, are what I'm most curious about - mostly since the name Google is attached.

Others: - dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled [copy and paste tracking] - network.http.sendRefererHeader [hyperlink tracking]

Website for reference: https://proprivacy.com/privacy-service/guides/firefox-privacy-security-guide

I understand a lot can change within a year, but before breaking something, I wanted to ask if changing any of the above settings, particularly those having to do with Google, will cause damage to the browser itself. -thx

First of this issue is atleast 4 years old. I found various different people having this problem. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432644 It should be a P5 not a P3. This official Mozilla article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-trusted-websites-your-allow-list-firefox-focus Does NOT work.

I am trying to add an expection to tracking protection but there is no such option, as descriped at Bugzilla. In the adress bar i removed the tracking protection for a website. But it was NOT added to the exception list. I dont allow 3rd party cookies and auto delete cookies when closing Fox. I think that is the reason why it's not working, if this is the case it's a bug.

What i actually tried to do, using dark-theme from duckduckgo permanently. Because as right now, i must change the theme every single time i reopen Firefox. This is Bull**** honestly. Even when i add duckduckgo as an addon, it does not save the dark theme!

When deleting Firefox' history I can choose to clear "active logins" and/or "cookies". But "cookies" are mostly used to store information about "active logins". So there seems to be some overlap. I'm interested in the technical difference between the two. I suspect "active logins" is clearing only session cookies, while "cookie" is clearing also/only non-session cookies? But I haven't been able to find reliable documentation on these details. Could someone help me out?

Starting Firefox( going to Google.Com ) I get either "Secure Connection Not Available" or "Google.com taking to long to load". It is an HTTPS-Only Mode Alert. If I reload the page it goes to Google.com. Also if I create a new tab it works fine. When is says it is taking to long to load it is only loading for a few seconds before I get the message. The problem is only on the initial opening of Firefox. Thanks

All of a sudden I'm getting the Yahoo maiil ID changed to Google Mail with out any authorisation on my part ? I know Google owns Yahoo. I use Yahoo mail all the time and Yahoo is my ID for many applications so why has this happened ? If something like this can change unknowns to me does this mean that Google has control of my MAC and FireFox and its content .??

Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

I only use Firefox as my PC browser. I always run in private mode, so all cookies etc are deleted. I have about 100 login passwords saved, but use a FF primary password. The PC is protected at startup with the standard pin code. I never save personal data such as credit card details or addresses. Can I be confident that if I take the PC to a repair shop and leave it there it will be safe? Is there anything else I can do to make things more secure in the event of repair, or PC being stolen?

I also have MS Edge on the PC (can't seem to delete it) but all personal data is deleted.

Thanks in advance.

Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

I'm an old Firefox user. Thank you for excellent Browser!

However, I've seen some bad things in Firefox 89, so I'll report it. After upgrading Firefox to 89, access from behind the proxy no longer reaches all addresses beyond the firewall. I noticed that the page opens correctly when I play around with the settings, which is related to the HTTPS-Only Mode and Automatic proxy configuration URL settings. I specify the address of "http:" in the Automatic proxy configuration URL. In that case, if HTTP-Only Mode is ON, it seems that the proxy configuration file cannot be read correctly. When I turned off HTTP-Only Mode and reloaded again, the page was displayed correctly. Alternatively, I can give up the specification in the Automatic proxy configuration URL and switch to the manual specification. That said, before 89, all settings were displayed correctly, so I think it was a trigger for the change in 89. Is there anything you can think of? Is such a phenomenon happening in other people?

FF is offering me two versions of my e-mail when I login to a website where I have specifically told it to 'never' remember a password. The little black selection dropdown shows both myUserName@myMailserver.com myUserName@myMailserver.co When I click to login page of 'website.com'. It does not offer this for all websites that use e-mail address as login.

I have checked and the website in question shows up in 'never save' exceptions to my 'ask to save usernames and passwords'.

So I have no saved passwords to remove for that site--when I look up 'website.com', I get nothing.

2 questions: why does FF continue to offer a login name for that site?

FF 93.04 beta (will be updated in a few minutes to next version) MacOS 11.6 Big Sur and where can I find and zap 'myUserName@myMailserver.co' without losing all of my other logins & passwords that I do allow FF to store for me?
