The latest version of Firefox will not allow me to save my new passwords. Other distros do not have this problem. Manjaro will allow me to save the passwords if I am logged in as ‘root’. I think my user rights might be the problem. Fun to be back.
could you describe the problem in a bit more detail?
For example what desktop environment/window manager do you use?
Also where exactly does the problem emerge? Does it happen when you want to save a password after login or does the window not even show up? Or do they just not persist after a restart?
- In my manjaro installation, firefox saves all user data in a .mozilla in the home folder so permissions might not be the problem
- i found this support entry on the mozilla site for the password manager. Maybe you have to alter the settings under about:preferences --> Privacy & Security --> Logins and Passwords
hope this is helpful
I run pure KDE on Manjaro. I have read that bit from mozilla. for me it does not work. I cannot check the first box under Preferences-Log in and Passwords, it is grayed out. On other distros, I do not have this problem.
Sorry - I’m using Manjaro with Firefox and that’s not greyed out. I’m guessing there must be some permissions problem…
firefox -p and create a new profile to test it.
