    Bug In Firefox 44 (For Norton Users) That Deletes Passwords


    Posted: 28 Jan 2016

    When I upgraded from Firefox 43 to Firefox 44 I lost all my passwords. It appears if you were using an older version of Firefox along with Norton Identity Safe, Norton Identity Safe set a configuration switch within Firefox which was activated by the upgrade to Firefox 44. Several days ago I reported the missing passwords after the Firefox upgrade and working with Bugzilla they were able to determine what triggered the missing passwords with Firefox. A hotfix should be coming out shortly.

    1242176 All passwords deleted upon startup if privacy.clearOnShutdown.passwords = True but privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown = false

    Glad I still only have the 43 64bit version installed! Have been staying with Cyberfox lately having switched over from Waterfox and now Cyberfox has been acting up all but anything to do with passwords which it remembers much better then seen with the other FF and variants! If you decide to try that simply uncheck the Australian gui option if not from there.

    So all the rage about FF being good and everyone praising it and now it has a bug.
    Glad I don't use it

    FF has bugs just like any other browser and none are excluded from having their own. It's software just like anything else that has to progress as it goes along or flops!

    I agree but when some members have a go about Edge Browser, not having certain add ONS,
    then praise FF that is what I am pointing out.

    Who cares.
    Edge have bugs too and "some member " praises it like the 2nd coming.
    I am glad Edge is just a garbagety as other browsers.

    How long as Edge been out compared to all other browsers,
    Edge is just a baby at moment but at least it will get there in time and hopefully catch and overtake the rest

    Who cares.
    Until glitches have been fixed, Edge is still as garbagety as other browsers.
    That's the bottom line.

    The finding here have been with "every browser" tried out so far no matter how new or old you get so far and then suddenly the next version released proves itself to be buggy since every time you turn around the update wizard wants you to put the next one on. Once IE got to 9 I was already waiting to see what would come up since the 32bit FF was out and far from any Chrome lover here I happened to run across the Waterfox 24 variant and gave that a good look!

    The problem that wasn't seen with WF for a long time amounting to 4.5yrs. was not seeing it freeze up when having multiple browser windows open until it reached the 40-42 releases and started acting up right when the 64bit FF was just coming out but while putting FF x64 on I also ran tests on some others to see how their latest were doing and have been giving Cyberfox a run until that just started acting up a little.

    Common problem with a common solution which is.....? go back a few releases until you find one that runs good! and stick with it!

    When you look at the release notes for browsers they usually show bugs which have been resolved. Some of the could be security related and critical. So using an older release can have problems, I actually switched to Firefox 44 when it was on RC2 and reported the bug at that time. My main choice for a password manager is Norton Identity Safe but that has not been operational since October because they had to rebuild it from scratch because of stricter security requirements within Firefox.
