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?

On four occasions during the past three months, Amazon has refused my log in to their site, stating that I've not used the correct password. When this occurs, I look at my 'password box' and can see that the number of characters (the black dots) are of a far greater number than the number of characters in my current password by more than 200. When I go to 'Security' in Firefox to view my password, it has indeed changed to a random selection of 200 plus characters. When I erase these characters and retype my original password, Amazon will accept the change and I can log in.

My question: Although I don't expect anyone to know why Amazon is doing this, I'm baffled as to how Firefox can be manipulated by Amazon so as to change my password.

Has anyone experienced this and is there any advice? I'm hopeful that an actual Amazon tech will have a response to this as well as the community.

Thank you,

Placerville

Hello

The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

https://prod-tp.sumo.mozit.cloud/en-US/questions/1271509#question-reply

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

I have searched every support post that has anything remotely to do with my problem. I have tried booting in safe mode, downloading Firefox ESR and performing folder acrobatics with key3 and key4 files, I have disabled my anti-virus software. To no avail.

This morning, I was forced to log back in to my Firefox Browser "due to security reasons" and when I did all of my logins and passwords were gone. if I go to about:protections and scroll to the bottom of the page, Firefox Lockwise tells me that I have 158 passwords saved securely. But if I go to Logins & Passwords, there are only the 5 passwords that I have saved today since the issue began.

I NEED HELP!!!!!

Hello! Today I power on my computer and for some reason my Firefox account was not configured on the browser. I just logged in with my Firefox account and wait until it finishes syncing all. After a few minutes it finished "correctly". I said "Correctly" because I was very surprised when I detect that all my saved passwords were not being sync. I tried with another computer that has the same Firefox account and it has all the passwords, but nothing appears on my computer. I tried several things like restart computer, logout and login again, checked if key.db file exists on my home, etc but nothing works. I just found one difference between the devices (both are Linux and bot are Fedora): On the device that I can see all the passwords Firefox version is 73. On the device that I described before that I cannot see any password Firefox version is 76. Can it be affecting the sync? I'm worried about to update Firefox on the devices that passwords are being displayed and lost it on both devices.

My OS is Fedora 31 and my firefox version is 76.

Thanks!

Changed my password in lockwise to a generated one on my main pc due to a site breach elsewhere. When I try to login firefox to my laptop to sync it fails because it had the old password. When I go in to password and logins on the desktop, it still shows the old password. If I go to lockwise or my account on the desktop and try to log in to my settings, it uses my old account password and tells me wrong password.

But, if I close out firefox on the desktop, then reopen, I am able to access all my other passwords and logins, except changing things in accounts.firefox.com. I do not have a copy of the generated password in lockwise.

How do I fix this?

Are there settings like a checklist for Uppercase, Lowercase, Numbers, Symbols, Length ? Sometimes I want a more readable password other times sites aren't accepting a password with/without some of these defined. Also why isn't there a button in the "about:logins" (or a normal dropdown context menu item) to just generate a password in any field, because sometimes it doesn't work for some fields - like changing a password, or I need to generate it separately.

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.

Firefox has begun showing multiple password options when I am trying to log into a site. Several errors (and yes, I consider them ERRORS) are occurring:

1) Firefox presents passwords for EVERY account I have on the current website, not just the one I have entered in the UserID field;

and

2) Firefox presents multiple, previous versions of the password for the correct UserID.

I want this to stop, mainly because, before these errors were introduced, only the correct version of the correct UserID's password was auto-populated, and pressing the LOGIN button was all that was required.
