I bravely updated as prompted, and now my encrypted passwords are useless since the file I believe (?) is needed to decrypt them "key3.db" is not doing its job. I do not have a backup of the key3.db that did work last week. Is there any way to decrypt the passwords or restore them in Firefox?

I have one old key3.db from June of 2014. I used that to replace the new one in my profile folder, but it didn't work.

Making the saved passwords function suddenly useless after an update would seem like a fairly big mistake. I am a veteran user and this has seriously violated my trust.

I use Waterfox, specifically for an online game I play. I use it for the 64 bit capacity. Until a couple updates ago, it saved my logins and passwords fine, but after a recent update...I am currently using 46.0.1, the more recent ones create flash issues and won't work, it will save the logins and passwords for as long as the computer remains running, but then loses them. I can set up sync, even though I don't use waterfox on any other device, and have no reason to, but then it won't keep me logged in to synch, and I have to relogin to "sync", get an email confirmation, and reply before I can proceed. This is my own desktop, in my own home, where I am the only resident. Additionally, these are game logins, that are useless to anyone. Why can't I save my logins and passwords without going through the hassle of syncing...and why won't that remember and remain logged in on my device? This is frustrating, is there an answer out there, where some setting can be changed to allow this?

Yesterday I've used 'LastPass' add-on with no problem. I can't say for sure that yesterday the icon was present in navigation toolbar (as I usually open the site login page and use auto fill user name option from login forms), but I'm sure that the add-on work just fine, there was the '*' displayed in the right side of each login field and password was correctly filled in. Now the 'LastPass' add-on is not displayed in extension list in my Firefox browser and if I search for 'LastPass' the option to install it is offered.

Can you please tell me how can I check how the 'LastPass' add-on was removed and is this a kind of trojan or virus problem before I reinstall the add-on.

Thanks for your support.

Hi,

Summary :


Firefox doesn't save password. On form login webpage, the dialogbox asking if I want to save my login/password appears, but it is not saved (when I logout, no remember data is displayed on loggin form as usually. Nothing appears in Preference/Privacy & Security list of saved login/password : empty).

Environnement :


Mozilla Firefox 59.0.2 Ubuntu 17.10 64 bits

What I do to try to solve this problem:


1. I read the mozilla knowledge database https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/usernames-and-passwords-are-not-saved

All is ok ( "Remember logins and passwords for websites." checked, always remember history... )

2. I check file permissions (chmod, chown) of .mozilla folder, read & write privileges for user (the profile folder cames from a windows installation : user switching to linux... )

3. A message error on console log


(/usr/lib/firefox/firefox:2827): dconf-WARNING **: Unable to open /var/lib/snapd/desktop/dconf/profile/user: Permission non accordée

This message appears when I load a webpage with the empty form loggin, (not when the dialog box asking to save appears...) . Pearhaps, do not relate this problem.

But this bring me to a similar support for firefox with this error https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=156416

So, I disable extension : same probleme. I empty extension folder : same problem

4. Rename file in profile folder : A solution suggested to solve no registering password I can read is to rename key3.db key4.db and login.json. Same problem.

When I ask to register login/password when the dialogbox appears, only login.json seams written.

List of profile folder modified file during theses tests : saved-telemetry-pings crashes prefs.js sessionCheckpoints.json webappsstore.sqlite favicons.sqlite SecurityPreloadState.txt AlternateServices.txt xulstore.json addons.json addonStartup.json.lz4 extensions.json extensions search.json.mozlz4 compatibility.ini permissions.sqlite logins.json


A solution finded


I run firefox --safe-mode option : all works fine : can register new passwords, and old user password (from his windows firefox installation) appears in preference/privacy dialog.

Can you help me ?

Thanks !

I often use the hungarian OTP bank online bank service nly on my personal macbook. Nobody else uses my comp. Last time when I tried to log in, the username and the account number (these are login data) were not mine! These werent a fake numbers, these were someone else's login details. The password field is always empty and at first glance I did not realize this fake numbers, I just typed my password and the login was unsuccesfull. When I checked the account number I realized these were unknown numbers, not mine. How does it happen?

So far this year, Firefox has deleted all my saved passwords 3 times. I use Windows 8.1, have checked the settings in the password manager. I am using the same computer, same version of Windows that I have used for years. I don't know how to restore them other than typing them all in again as I use the sites. How can I prevent this? If there is no way to avoid this (it seems to happen when there has been an update) is there a way to restore them? I have basic computer skills, nothing advanced. 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!!!!!

I've been using Firefox for years for saving some user name/passwords and have no had any problems until today. I'm trying to manage a Cisco video codec and as I go through some of the settings pages there are options for user/pass for other sections and Firefox is automatically entering the saved info to initially log into the codec/browser. This is already getting somewhat annoying as I switch between areas it auto populates these changes and then I try to move to the next area and I get warnings about pending changes not saved. It should be auto filling only the initial log in page, not every subsection.
