Hi, are the files key4.dab logins.json

generated on a 64bit Firefox compatible with a 32 bit version?

The reason is that in the 32 bit one all my "user & PW" data .... abruptly vanished. So I wished to use the existing data to restore the configuration.

Both PC are running LINUX: - 64bit has Linux Mint - 32 bit has Kubuntu

Thanks in advance for your time! Alberto

Say that I have a login at a site, and I got there previously with another browser. When I go to the same site with Firefox for the first time, that site's ID field might drop down to show a number of entries, and many times (but not always) there is no "View Saved Logins" below the list.

Here is an example of a site than many readers of this might not go to: DevonTechnologies.com and this might be the same for you. Devon's login ID wants an email address, and the field dropped down to show 29. A bunch of them were emails I would swear on my kid's heads I have never used anywhere, not even in another browser, and one was a misspelling of my own email address. Only a small few were addresses that were valid elsewhere. But here is the rub: A search of about:logins for the weird addresses and my misspelling came up empty.

Further, I can go to another site I have never visited with Firefox, and I might not get a drop-down at all or I might get just one of my three typical email addresses.

For those sites where I have used Firefox for the first time, the questions are

  • Where did Firefox get those spurious addresses?
  • Where did Firefox get a good address, and why did it leave out the "usual" others?
  • Why are the odd logins not found at about:logins?

I have Firefox 76.0.1 under Catalina 10.15.4, and I sync with Lockwise.

Thanks.

Today, I somewhat accidentally accessed a part of FireFox that I suspect is off limits to non-members.

STEPS

  1. I pressed and held cmd-option keys then hit the i key.
  2. Tapped the Network tab
  3. Refreshed the page
  4. These messages came up. I am not sure, but I suspect these links are off limits to non-members (to see the image I made , you have to click the link).

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-06-27-12-42-27-182be0.png


5. clicked the link indicated which exposed the following restricted information. I suspect it is some form of computer code.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-06-27-12-44-37-c81e72.png

6. When this material appeared, I immediately unplugged my computer, to avoid detection by the authorities.

I repeated the steps, but took a few seconds to capture screen images so I could post them here.

I understand security practices might dictate that you share no knowledge on this topic, but if you can safely and legally explain in terms my child would understand, what I found hiding on my computer, I would be much obliged.

I'm using Firefox 77.0.1

In earlier versions of Firefox, the password needed for a local log-on to an ip address was auto filled. Unfortunately with the latest version it needs me to manually enter the user name and password every time.

I've tried editing the Firefox about:config where a previous suggestion was to change the "signon.autofillForms.http" to "True", the local web address in question is http://172.20.10.9 and may therefore be regarded as insecure.

Microsoft Edge has no issue with saving and using the user name and password.

Thanks

My financial firm rep said they use Glance Technologies (aka Perk Labs) for screen sharing with their client devices. However, the screen sharing could not be made to work today with the rep on the phone, even though I unchecked the button in my Firefox Privacy settings for blocking popups. I am now wondering if some other Privacy settings in Firefox are known to create issues with Glance Technologies screen sharing. It would also be interesting to find out more generally about Firefox settings and screen sharing using other screen sharing technology firms.

In Firefox>Privacy and Security, there are two very similar looking settings regarding routine cookie destruction:

Cookies and Site Data>check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. Manage Permissions [A site list with Block, Allow, Allow for Session]

History>Firefox will Use custom settings for History>Clear history when Firefox closes. Settings: check Cookies

My current understanding is that Cookies and Site Data potentially provides exclusions from the cookie carnage, whereas the History setting per above would delete all cookies. Is this correct as far as it goes? What I keep wondering is why the topic of cookie destruction when closing cannot be handled in one area of the Settings layout, instead of in two different areas.

This is mostly a heads-up, in case others run into this problem.

For months I have been unable to log into my healthcare site (https://www.medicare.uhc.com/ via https://www.healthsafe-id.com/) on Firefox (latest PC version). I contacted UHC about the problem. All they did was recommend using a different browser. They passed the problem to level two, who I never heard from.

After many different attempts to localize the problem, I discovered the problem was with the Privacy Possum add-on. I am opening this so that others might find it if they run into the problem. I have removed that add-on, and have provided feedback to Firefox that it does not seem to be adequately supported at this time. I think they should remove it from availability, if they can.
