I installed Thunderbird in Tiny Core Linux v.10 Everything worked fine, I added two e-mail accounts which both worked well and added the passwords in the master password configuration. Next time I opened Thunderbird to check my mail, the application asked for the master password. This failed. I tried to open and check the passwords, but fail to open the master password folder. I am very sure the password is correct. PLEASE NOTE: Tiny Core Linux loads in RAM, as do the applications being opened. It may be possible, when closing the system, the original password was not back-up'ed automatically. How can I delete the master password entry, so I can enter the respective P/W's for the respective accounts, and without having to re-install the application?

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.

On my Android phone I cannot type in a URL and have Firefox take me there directly. Google (or some other search engine) sees and processes everything I type. On my desktop Firefox I can type a URL into the address bar without Google seeing it. (AFAIK.)

I let Firefox store my logins so I don't have to hunt no matter which computer I'm using. Lately, Firefox has decided to show logins that don't exist or haven't been used in decades (yes, DECADES). I ran CTRL-SHIFT- DEL, shut down and and restarted FF and rebooting. The fool things still show. What gives? How can these unneeded items be permanently removed? Thank you.

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

I have recently changed from using Microsoft Online to GMail service (not by choice). I now have a problem in that I cannot send emails from TB because TB still wants to sign in to the Microsoft SMTP server, not the GMail SMTP server.

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.

Best Regard

I use TB 78.6 and there is a company mail account as well as a private mail account. For the company account, I installed a PKS#11 cryptography module from the smart card software which enables me to use the certificate saved on the smart card. That works as it should. However, when I connect to the private Mail account (Yahoo, OAuth2) via SSL, TB keeps asking me each time that imap.mail.yahoo.com:993 requires me to use a certificate and offers me as only solution to use the company certificate on the smart card which is totally unrelated to that account. I have the "remember" checkbox enabled and press on "cancel", but this decision is not remembered.

I tried to remove the cryptography module in the private mail account settings but that removed the module from all of the accounts. It looks like this is not a per-account-setting although it is listed individually for each account in the settings.

How can I stop TB from wanting to use my company certificate for that account?

FWIW: I am behind a company squid proxy which to me seems not to intercept SSL connections (how can I test that if it is related to the issue?).

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?
