That's something Chrome does for ages. If I'm logged in to a local account on Windows and I want to reveal any of the passwords Chrome is storing, it will ask me for my credentials every time I try to see one of these passwords.

Firefox just shows them right away, exposing dozens of passwords to whoever might be using the computer.

I'm attaching 2 images, one from the password manager in Firefox, another from Chrome. you'll see that in chrome I'm asked for my windows credentials when trying to see passwords

Hey everybody,

I'm a bit worried that I can access my lockwise passwords page directly from the browser with no checks. Is there a way that I can make the browser ask for my firefox password or something before showing anybody all my accounts and their passwords in plain text?

Thanks!

I have a staging site for my website which is protected (not visible to the public) and requires authentication with the username and password to be accessed.

Firefox is blocking access with the authorisation window coming up empty again and again and again when I enter the credentials.

So - I have to use a different browser just to access this one site.

I have cleared the cookies and cache, removed the site from the browsing history - Firefox is still blocking the access.

how can I unblock it?

I use Windows 64 bits on my PC.

Hi. Been having nothing but huge hassles trying to get Firefox to do anything with letting the website access my webcam. I've already read a bunch of articles on this but still no luck getting it to work. I keep putting in the url of the website, pressing enter, but firebox will never show the website in the box below it like your help section said would happen. I have used both the actual url from the website page which is asking me to connect my cam, and I have also shortened that web address to just the website's main address, but still nothing happens when I out that address into the camera setting's search box and then press enter ( I attached 2 screen capture images if that). I have even doubled checked the web address and copy n pasted it into the camera settings search box, pressed enter, but still nothing shows in the box down below it. I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit in case that matters

My banking institution 'updated' and since then I am asked for 2 step verification almost every time I log in. I do NOT have that checked. My FF privacy settings are to allow cookies for their website, and the adblocker has been set to allow this website. Yet I am still asked. The idiots at my banking institution insist it is FF and suggested I call them for help. Seriously. That is how dumb they are. They want me to send screenshots of my pc to show FF settings, which is NOT POSSIBLE! They are dumb dumb dumb. I don't know what else to do. No problem for years til their wonderful update. Ready to switch accounts. Any ideas about settings on FF?

I sure hope you can. I purchase Family Tree Make 2019 recently and chose to download the program. I currently have Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. But Edge will not allow me to download the program: it sends me a message that it is blocked. I've spent several hours trying to untangle this problem with FTM support and doing my own research on the 'net. The latest suggestion is that I try a different browser and Firefox was suggested. Now I'm not interested in becoming computer savvy; I just want to do genealogy. Is this something Firefox can support without thirteen pages of instruction? My second question: I will have to buy a new operating system this fall as Windows 10 is apparently no longer supported. What program would you recommend? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

I am not able to join my universities online classes through Firefox. I thought it might be just an issue with the unis conference service, but I tried discord as well and it's the same problem. Stuff I have tried: look into the permissions options and resdet the permissions (didn't even ask me for pemission again), check if the "block new requests" is marked (never was), didn't help launching firefox in trobleshoot mode to see if it's one of the addons that is the root of my problem, but it didn't change anything.

The only thing that helped was to reset Firefox, but that only fixes it temorarily (about 3 days). After that it reverted back to not letting me join calls. Now I could keep resetting my broweser every three day, but that's a bit bothersome.

We proceeded exactly according to the description for installing the option to save user names and passwords for further use. But it doesn't work. There comes the question if user name and password should be stored and despite you get "yes" they are not stored. Everything funcions well on our other computers but it doesn't work on our additional computer we are just installing. What could be the problem?

hello, i searched a bit and refreshed FF, started in FF in safe mode(currently in safe mode), shifted to work offline then shifted back, as possible solutions. No proxy is selected in network preferences. All that did was make it so whatsmyip.com now says no proxy when it said proxy in use before. it's showing las vegas as my location this time. My real location is hawaii and all my other browsers show this. The "problem" is months old. I have to verify that im not a robot regularly, and certain sites give an error 403, (iirc), but work fine with safari because it isn't using a proxy. Is it possible there is some sort of malware causing this? mac os10.12.6 FF88.0.1 (64bit)

Hi Firefox In one of the updates I lost all my saved passwords. I responded "no" to access the saved passwords in one of the updates, afraid of giving some external hackers access to them, not knowing that I would lose them all. Is there any way to get the lost passwords back? Is there any files on my hard disc where these are stored? I hope that you can help me.... With Regards

Hi,

The privacy and security settings don't work on Firefox 88 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS). Many sites will offer the option to 'Login with google/facebook/whatever' rather than creating a new account for that specific site. One really annoying (and dangerous) consequence of 'logging in with google' is that it remains logged in. So for example if I log in to non-google siteX using my google credentials and then hours later open gmail in a different tab I get straight through to my gmail inbox without having to supply any credentials (and indeed any other user of the same machine could do the same). Obviously this highly insecure and dangerous policy of keeping me logged in indefinitely is implemented by Google for their own agenda and has nothing to do with Firefox. The bug in Firefox is that when I clear all data to work around this google problem FIREFOX does not work as advertised. So to try to 'force' a logout from my Google account I go to Firefox -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies & Site Data -> Clear Data, after a few minutes of churning away at my harddrive Firefox informs me that 'Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 bytes of disk space.' For good measure I then hit the 'Clear History' button. After this I open a fresh tab and go to gmail and I get straight into my inbox, no credentials required, so clearly Firfox is NOT deleting all cookies etc and is mis-reporting that 0 bytes are being used. So, does anyone know where/how I should report this dangerous privacy bug ?

Thanks MH

Firefox lost all my logins/passwords. This happened last year and now it happens again. I've tried to find the old logins.json file and of course it does not work with it. It is empty. I'm using linux and there is no problem with any antivirus, it is simply a Firefox 'classical' error!

WHY is this happening? What is in the mind of the programmer responsible for this error? I can't understand why is he unable to keep a single file intact?

Why Mozilla is blaming the user for not having a backup. Firefox is messing this file, not the user! Why don't you fix Firefox and stop blaming the user? Why don't you simply FIX THE PROBLEM? You are "working on it" for years. Is it rocket science to JUST LET THE FILE ALONE?
