SOLVED - password - SOLVED
My passwords seem to be working fine but gmail has stopped asking for the firefox master password when I access it. Not sure what other pages are NOT asking for master password.
BUT I am sure that logging into this mozilla site DID ask for my master password. SO THE MASTER PASSWORD feature WORKS - (at least on some web pages).
So why is it not working on the gmail site? The GMAIL site loads normally but there is no prompt for master password. The gmail username box open showing me a list of my user names but it is NOT A COMPLETE LIST of my names. Choosing a username does not result in any password.
Running the master password for this mozilla site does not activate the gmail passwords either.
SOLVED - Either GMAIL changed their URL or Firefox did something to their code that no longer recognized https://www.google.com as the gmail page. The Firefox Password manager now needs https://accounts.google.com to function.
This change occurred within the last week, after a Firefox update, because both of my computers needed the Password Manager's URLs fixed.
