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

Dear Community,

I have a hand full of passwords I would like Firefox to fill out but stop asking me if I like to save logins and passwords every time I have to login on a websites.

Unfortunately, when I uncheck "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", Firefox will stop "Autofill logins and passwords", even the saved ones.

Does anyone know a workaround?

Hopefully, Elmar

Under EXCEPTIONS I had to ALLOW certain websites. Then I decided to experiment and see what ALLOWED for SESSION really does.

Neither the entries for websites I allowed for a session were deleted from the list of exceptions, nor the cookies saved by these websites were deleted even when I closed the browser.

I do not see the difference in terms of what happens between selecting Allow vs. Allow for session.

Could someone who knows please explain or point me to the place that explains the difference and how this works?

Thanks.

Hello, i was trying to configurate my wifi using ethernet connection and i got the messege several times even trying to access my provider page and my router page, however it does'nt happend with youtube, some how finally i got to my router page introduced my user id and password, i had to change my wifi antena and try with a a diferent driver but finally got my wifi working. But after that i got for first time in my life a blue screen on Windows 10.

Maybe isn't a big problem but i don't understand what happened, Firefox detected a true risk problem cause the ethernet conncection wasn't safe? Something (a virus or malware) enter my pc? Or was because a internal problem between firefox and a new not configureted router?

Also that messege appear on my android firefox one time.

Thank you and sorry for my english.

I recently installed the Firefox Multi Account Containers extension. I am wondering if tabs opened in "No Container" are in their own container. If I open youtube.com in a container called Google, it cannot read cookies from the Shopping container, or any other container, but can it read the cookies in "No Container"? I would like to use the "No Container" as my default container, but if information can be shared between "No Container" and other containers, then I'll have to recreate the Personal Container, and never use the "No Container" option.

I don't receive this message when I try it in Google Chrome. I've been able to share my screen in Google Meet when using Firefox in the past, but don't remember the last time I did. So, not sure when this issue really started. I would like to continue to use Firefox for this function, so any assistance is greatly appreciated.

When I try to access http://www.surinenglish.com I get the attached error message.

I have clicked the padlock and set it to off for this site. I have set no proxy for this site and still get the same problem. Running the site in Vivaldi and MS Edge the site loads perfectly fine.

In FF with HTTPS switched off it loads fine. With FF HTTPS switched off but with HTTPS Everywhere running but deactivated for the site it loads OK.

It looks like a FF problem but I can't find a way to fix it. Can someone help, please?

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.

I've been struggling today with accessing two systems on my work laptop. As I'm an administrator on both sites, I've been purposely using "private mode" browser sessions in Firefox (my default and fav) but I was surprised to see that the private mode appears to be "save" some of the session data from those systems - at least temporarily until I close all of those windows entirely?

I log in to one of those corporate sites with a username + password, then attempt to login to the other one in a separate tab, but it immediately attempts to auto-login me in with the credentials from the first site (which doesn't work as both sites require a different username/password for security reasons). I tried several combinations: I used separate private browser windows (instead of tabs) and the same thing happens. It's like it shares data across the instances? I also tried the reverse - logging into the 2nd system first on a fresh instance, then login to the first, and the same thing happens with a similar "invalid login" error.

Maybe its something weird about the auth on our network, like SSO? ...

I have noticed similar though where I've had other, multiple private browser sessions open on my personal laptop and even though I've closed one of them, activity from the site I closed has continued to happen in the background because the other private windows remained open ...

The firefox Monitor service seems like a nice feature checking for data breaches based on my email address. It would be nice if we could add additional email addresses to this scanner. For example I have my primary email address that is what I use for Firefox but I also have two other email addresses I frequently use for different purposes. It would be nice if the Firefox Monitor could scan all three of these addresses and send me a report.

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
