As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

Hi; hope all is well in your world!

I have a ProtonMail account. (It works fine, I recommend it!) Had it for years, but have not used it much. Looking into VPN and proton offers one, so trying to find out more, and so am now exploring the proton site quite a bit.

I can log into ProtonMail itself very easily; I get directed to my ProtonMail inbox. Cool so far. But clicking on 'help' takes me to ProtonMail Support, in a new tab. Not so cool, because I'm now not logged in. If I hit the 'LOG IN' button at the top of that page, I can log in (again) very easily. But it takes me back to my ProtonMail inbox! Same problem if I try to log in to the Protonmail Blog.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've checked through all the ProtonMail support articles (that claim they are 'step by step guide to find easily your answer'); I've investigated 'Common Login Problems', and none of the offered solutions apply (I'm not having a problem logging in; I'm having a problem logging in to something other than the inbox.) I've tried disabling browser extensions; checked the settings of Javascript, Session Storage, and Cookies; even tried using a different browser.

I think the answer to this conundrum is to configure Firefox -- just for proton -- so that instead of opening a new tab it opens the content in the same tab. But I've searched Firefox help, and have not been able to discover how to do that.

I fear I am slowly but surely going insane.

Please help!

I need to clear my personal data out of a computer before I return it to its owner. I am **absolutely** appalled and shocked by the fact that it seems to be impossible to clear out all my stored passwords on this firefox browser installation, unless I simply uninstall firefox -- which is exactly what I am about to do. And now that I am aware of this appalling security flaw, I am sorry to say that I will be uninstalling it from everywhere else I use it too.

How can it possibly be that it is thought to be "OK" that in order to remove stored passwords, the user must remove each individual password separately. In my case, that is 227 passwords!! I can clear all browsing history, all cookies, all site-cache data, etc etc.... but several minutes of searching, both in the settings and more generally online, only has produced a way to remove passwords one at a time?

If i have missed the UI to do this, then I apologize for being so annoyed -- but in that case I must report that the feature is EXTREMELY well hidden.

I just cannot BELIEVE any browser I sign into with firefox sync almost instantly copies 227 passwords of mine onto a machine, and that I cannot remove them without doing several HUNDRED clicks.

What am I failing to understand here?

It would be much appreciated if some future answer to this question could also be sent to [email]@gmail.com. I do not think i will be logging into my firefox account again until I can feel more secure that the act of logging in won't copy hundreds of passwords in a way which I then need to spend hours removing.

I loved this browser, but unless I am mistaken about this problem, I'm afraid I simply can no longer use it.

This particular firefox browser is running on an old old lubuntu 386 laptop. Or rather, it is about to be "was running." Perhaps this is a problem in some old old version of firefox which I am running because I am on such an old machine. It is 84.0.2 (32 bit) running on an old old Acer Aspire One. If that is the case, may I a suggest that you add to your support pages some information on how to remove ALL saved logins in a single act.

Thank you scott petrack

On my old computer - Linux Mint 19 with current Firefox installed, I had enabled an account and set a master password. Now I'm upgrading to a new computer. Firefox does not recognize the old master password. I found the setting to enable a new account password, but through the multiple jumps needed to get this set up, it frequently locks me out for 15 minutes. You encouraged saving passwords in Firefox. Switching the method for storing the passwords between versions and then having frequent 15 minute lockouts will make me abandon this platform. I don't have time for this. I do have my passwords backed up, but there is no where in Firefox that I can see in the passwords section to import from Firefox. I'm very disappointed.

Hi, as a user of Firefox from day1 I have hit my first problem so not bad going. Right, I have a win10 desktop(DT1) and 2 laptops (LP1 AND LP2). All win10 fully patched up &Firefox 84.02. This morning I noticed my network share from LP1 to DT1 wasnt working and found LP1 powered down. Powered it up & it looked to be completing a patch (KB4598242) so let it finish successfully and logged in. It wouldnt take the 2 master pw prompts although definitely typing them correctly. Poked around the forum that talks of key4.db, key3.db and logins.json. Only had key4db but had a loginsbackup.json. deleted logins.jason and renamed loginsbackup. reloaded. Same, so am stuck. Did notice as LP1 loaded after powering on that a Firefox update occurred. Could one have messed the other? Anyway these things seldom happen on their own so what went on yesterday. On LP2 I noticed that on each reboot I got 2 identical FFox windows. I tried refresh, uninstalling ffox & mainteneance service, same. So I searched for the word firefox and deleted everything I could find and reinstalled FFox. Same, so switched off & gave up. Perhaps I have sync between my devices, not sure. However I have never at any stage changed my master passwords which is the same on all 3 pc's. Any ideas? Shame to lose over 120 passwords if I have to somehow start over again by uninstalling FFox and reinstalling..that'll take ages. And of course the password prompt is coming up all the time whilst typing this. Help please

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Good day to all,

Can anyone tell me why I do not have the option to continue to a particular website?

I get this message... "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead"

I click Advance tab and only get the "Go Back (Recommended) option, not a continue button.

A co-worker can get to the site every time. He has two options to "Go Back" or to Add an Exception and continue to the site. There seems to be two differences between our browsers: 1) He has an older version and I have the newest version. 2) Under the "About:Config" I have an extra line that I cannot change "security.certerror.hideAddException" This option is set to "True" and is locked and grayed out. I do not have the option to change it.

Any ideas?

Hi, since today I've been unable to connect to reCAPTCHA. At first the reCAPTCHA boxes didn't show up at all and Firefox prevented me from connecting with Google because of an error with the certificate. I was able to fix that by allowing Firefox to trust root authorities (solution #6 on this list: https://sectigostore.com/page/fix-the-warning-potential-security-risk-ahead-error-in-firefox/ )

While the reCAPTCHA boxes are showing up again, I still can't connect with it. When checking the box, it starts loading for a while and I get an error message saying that there's no contact with reCAPTCHA and that I should check my connection and try again. I included a screenshot.

I went to topics of people who had the same problem and tried everything. Disabling protection against tracking, disabling Adblock, starting Firefox in safe mode, refreshing Firefox, loading another Firefox profile, restarting Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, restarting my pc. I'm desperate.

I'm only having this problem in Firefox, not in any other browser.
