Build ID: 2014112600

Steps to reproduce:

there are 2 effects: saved passwords are not offered anymore and when i enter a pw to a new site, then it is not offered anymore to save it

- open ff 34.0.5

effect 1:
- load a site, where a pw is saved already
- enter the first letters of the login and select the approbiate one

effect 2:
- load a site, where no pw is saved already
- enter username and password and send it

Actual results:

effect 1:
- there is no proposal for the passworde, although it is in the list of pws

effect 2:
- no dialog appears, to save the pw

Expected results:

effect 1:
- expect, that the pw field is filled by ff

effect 2:
- a dialog appears, to save the pw from now on

- I've seen the effect in the previous version already, but only a few times, now it is always like this
- preferences show, that all entries are still there and option "always private" is not set
- activating private, new start, deactivating private an new start didn't change anything
- system is OpenSUSE 13.1 64bit
Does it work again in a new proflle ?

Hi Matti, I gave it a short try. Yes, looks good then again. Hope you need this for analytics and not as solution, since it would mean a lot of work, to restore all data manually in the new profile ;-)

You can try the reset Firefox function :

We can fix such an error only if we know how ti get your password file in that state.

Hi Matti,

i see the point. So I tried to manage it myself. Found a way for restoring fireftp data too :-). Only for TagSeive I didn't find a solution yet. Hints?

Well, I think, that its ok to close it and wait for a moment, where someone can also give unpersonalised data for analysis ;-)
I'm glad that your found a way around this issue.
I will mark this report wfm until we find someone who can provide STR
