How can I change the password for my access to using firefox?

Answers deny there is any password -- however, now and then I am asked to confirm that I am the person identified on the MY Yahoo -- I am asked for a username and password.

An example is when I change computers and Yahoo or Mozilla does not recognize the new computer.

I do not understand -- yes normally, I simply open the browser and use it. BUT!!!

I am probably using the wrong jargon for what I want to change.

OK -- I now understand that the password I want to change is internal to Firefox and used to protect my privacy when I try to open mail or other personal areas.

I think I can find the place to do this.

Re: How can I change the password for my access to using firefox?

hello, yahoo will log you out after 2 weeks for security purposes - it might also recognize when you access your yahoo account through a different device & ask for authentication again. this is all determined on the server-side by yahoo, so firefox can't influence such behaviour...

if you have the impression that these log-outs happen to often or are inconvenient you can also try to contact yahoo's support...
