Firefox forgetting Passwords.

Postby Arron on Mon Dec 29, 2008 1:48 pm

For some reason FF is forgetting passwords, website logins every so often. This is on Mint 5 all up to date. The daughter was playing some with the pc, that may of been the cause, but i don't know. It used to have no problems with the saved logins, and now its gone. I re-enter it, and within a week they are gone again.

Is there some setting for this or something?

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I took a look at the settings and there is no "timer" for this
But you can get the passwords to show as normal text with a few mouse clicks - a security risk I was not aware of
I always thought they were hidden and encrypted. You can set a master password though
I think you should got to the Firefox forum with this

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
