I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

I use Firefox in private browsing by default. However, that means that I always have to login to any website, which can be a pain.

I was wondering if there is some middle ground. For example, if I could whitelist cookies from a specific domain to persist across private mode sessions or to be imported from non-private browsing. I am aware that I could be tracked by those domains, but that is a compromise I'm happy with.

I know that my saved passwords are still available - because when I go onto sites I always use, on this browser, it logs me in.

However if I go to Options>Privacy & Security> Saved logins it only shows the "firefox account credentials" (which I had never noticed before) and 1 password I updated today

I went to log into Gmail on Firefox on my phone. I noticed that if I hit the "show password" button and then clicked on the box for entering the password, Firefox showed me my password as a suggestion, in plaintext, as if it were form data.

Some things to note:

  • I have never saved any passwords on Firefox on my phone (nor have I ever allowed Firefox to save my Gmail password, even on other devices). When I went into "Manage logins" in the settings, Gmail was not there.
  • I then decided to clear private data, and chose ONLY to clear "Form history". Sure enough, the Gmail password stopped showing up.

This is concerning to me! Am I misunderstanding the situation somehow, or is this a security problem?

All of my saved passwords have been dumped, deleted, gone. NO reason. I've seen others with the same complaint. There is no excuse for this. And it is unforgivable. This browser is a child's toy, not serious about being reliable. IF there is a solution to this problem you have created, if I can get my passwords back, I'd love to know how. But I'll bet there is no solution. I'll bet this ridiculous string of coded incompetence cannot be redeemed.

Have I made myself clear?

I've got Mozilla-Plugins like LastPass and NordVpn, where I can enter my username or my email account at first, but each time I try to switch to the next box , where I should be able to enter my Password, either by cursor or tab the Plugin window closes instantly.

I have already tried it with every other plugin disabled to pinpoint if it's maybe a problem another plugin causes, but that's not it.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, but I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04 LTS

So every idea is appreciated!

Hi. I’ve been using Firefox for like 20 years and for some reason this time on my new iPhone it wants me to authenticate using my app Authy. Because they do not have a direct link to a Firefox icon etc.… I created a new miscellaneous one as pertheir options and named it Firefox. However when it asked me to use the Authy to finalize the setup after putting in the correct password it never works. It states something like incorrect authentication code. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

Firefox version: 66.0.2 Computer: Mac OS 10.13.6 I just changed my web mail password. The new password was accepted by the web mail site. The old password does NOT work. The new password DOES. I restarted the computer after making the change. When I signed back into my web mail site I had to input my new password. Firefox DID NOT ask to save the new password. (This feature IS turned on in the preferences.) When I signed out of Web mail and signed back in the NEW password was NOT automatically filled in. I went to the password manager and MANUALLY changed the password. I signed out of the web mail site and restarted the computer. When I signed back into the web mail site it STILL AUTOMATICALLY input the OLD password and I had to manually input the new one. I checked the password manager and the NEW password is there with today's date as the last time it was changed. I checked other sites with saved passwords and they still operate as the always have.

Why is this happening? What can I do to get it to ask & populate properly?
