I like Firefox to remember the passwords for certain sites. I also use Dashlane but there are sites that Firefox only remembers right and vice versa. Every time I start Firefox I find the "Remember passwords for sites" box unchecked in the security options.

I thought it might be Dashlane doing it but I disabled the program and it made no difference

I had lost my passwords, and had all my bookmarks on both firefox quantum, and with developer edition. Even though I think i was signed into sync, I could not get my information back. I had done no changes to my computer, and it appears this happened from an update. After searching online, I was able to get my passwords to show synch using developer edition. I am afraid to keep the passwords only using sync, as I am thinking this may happen again... I would like to have a backup file that works, so I can setup an older firefox for events in the future, with my passwords. Please let me know how to export the passwords, or bring back an option for export. If this is not possible, I may not use firefox anymore... I have been using firefox for years, and always have recommended to other people. However, I like the original firefox the best. I do not need a browser which reminds me of chrome or windows. Thank you

Entry of password characters seems to work but login deemd incorrect, IE11 works fine eg Capita pension and Bank of Ireland sites- always.

Two sites: UK Teachers Pension (Capita) and Bank Of Ireland (other sites fine), ask for entry of particular characters from password/PIN (eg 3rd, 5th, 7th) into boxes on log-in page. Entry seems to go fine but on submission: 'incorrect...try again...2 tries remaining'. Using IE11 works fine.

Bank of Ireland was getting reports of this last year but the issue persists, the pension site was ok last year but not now.

Win 7-32 bit, with up to date FF does this as does win 7-64 bit machine with FF 52.6.0 ESR.

uMatrix is installed but disabling filtering makes no difference: FF fails with these sites IE11 works. Has FF deprecated something (Java?) that some sites still use?

I attend University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, UAFS. Every few months they require students to change their passwords, this is fine on campus, but at home when it changes I have to retype the username and password every time I want to log in and there is no one else here to compromise my computer. I had to recently reload my computer after it crashed, the first time I had to fill it in was fine and since reloading the OS it remembers the information, but when I have to change my password , I have until Oct 2nd, and the authentication window appears and I change what is in it to log in, then the next time after that I will have to retype the info everytime I log in. This will happen until I either have to reload windows or get a new computer. My question: is there a way to reset this so that I don't have to retype it ever single time after I have to change it. I didn't know where to start asking this and I realize you may not be the ones to ask but I was hoping you could give me some insight. Thank you!

I've tried everything, disable acceleration, add-ons and everything i've found on your blogs. Website does allow to autocomplete. Every other browser save username-password combination.

Fields have props: `autocomplete="username"` and `autocomplete="current-password"`

I'm hoping to get these back, because there were a lot... :( Thanks for any advice.

Firefox won't stop prompting me for master password

Hello,

Long-time Firefox user here. I'm running Firefox (version 75.0, auto-updates enabled) on a Windows 10 (Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362) desktop PC. I'm using the built-in Firefox password manager, although as a general practice I do not log into it using my master password unless absolutely needed (for example, to check my email or Slack). For the vast majority of the general browsing I do, I stay logged out of my accounts.

This has worked just fine for years. However, lately Firefox keeps prompting me to enter my master password, and won't stop prompting me for my password while I'm browsing. Oftentimes I'll randomly receive the prompt, often on sites that should not be asking for a password, such as a blank New Tab or sites that don't have any associated data in my password manager.

What's frustrating is that, when I close the prompt, Firefox will immediately re-prompt me again to enter my master password, despite me not wanting to log in (or on some sites, not having an account or even a login page). It will keep repeating this prompt incessantly, sometimes for 5-6 times before going away briefly, only to reoccur when I navigate to a new site.

My browser is configured to be a bit more privacy-conscious, and I'm wondering if this may be causing this behavior. In Options > Privacy and Security, I've set Custom blocking for the following items: - Cookies (all third-party sites) - Tracking content (in all windows) - Cryptominers - Fingerprinters I have also set my browser to delete cookies and site data upon closure.

I am using the following plugins, with auto-updates enabled: uBlock Origin HTTPS Everywhere Privacy Badger Decentraleyes Cookie Autodelete Firefox Mult-Account Containers Facebook Container

I've searched the support forums for help on this topic and found the two articles below. However, after trying the offered solutions, neither fixed the underlying behavior. Also note that I am not using any third-party antivirus solutions, like ESET Internet Security and Avast, which have been known to cause similar issues with the Firefox password manager. Here are the articles I found: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-keeps-asking-me-master-password (I tried these steps and still had the same behavior happen) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176785 (this just disables the Password Manager, something I ideally would not have to do to stop this behavior)

Can anyone provide any insight into why Firefox keeps doing this? I love Firefox but lately it's become a drag to use because of this. Thanks all.

On my PC with Firefox, I'm trying to login to PNC online banking from this site: www.onlinebanking.pnc.com. If I manually enter the username and password, the Sign in button becomes active, and I can login successfully. But, for this site only, Firefox is not automatically filling the username and password. I have to tap the username field and then select the username from a drop down list of the synced logins. But after I do, the Sign in button remains grayed out and not clickable. For what it's worth, on other websites, Firefox autofills the username and password without me manually selecting it. And I don't have any problems logging in to those websites. But of course, I have none of these problems with Chrome.

As a side note, the Firefox Android browser won't even display a drop down list of synced logins when I tap the username field on www.onlinebanking.pnc.com. Nothing happens when I tap the field. And I did confirm that the login was already synced in the login storage. Again, this problem does not happen with the Chrome Android browser.

I have reinstalled Firefox and also ran it in safe mode, with no luck. How can I fix these problems? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit).
