Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

It keeps forgetting my passwords, plus with other sites too. But with Hotmail it nearly got me locked out even when I was using my correct password. (When I had FF2 I always found it very difficult with hotmail though. Very very slow!)

Also, I am finding it extremely hard to open a new 'tab' ctrl+t, and new bookmark ctrl+D sometimes. Not all the time though.
Also having a lot of 'lock up' problems when using multiple windows.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try using the programme, especially hotmail.
2.seems to happen in the morning (GMT, strange, but true)
3.try putting in my password

(plus any other bits that I have mentioned above)
Actual Results:  
I'm not an expert, I'm just letting you know to get your browser up to it's usual quality.
I've not seen other reports of passwords being forgotten. Sounds like you may be having problems with other extensions causing problems, try running Firefox in Safe Mode. If you can still reproduce the problem, enable debugging per  and attach here.

Well, la dee da. I have no idea how enable debugging, but now it has made my online account lock itself with some sort of error.
It keeps on locking up and stopping half way through a task, and probably alerted the online account in some way.

If you can help me out and tell me how to sort this thing out, otherwise I'll just uninstall it and use another browser. I do have IE7 and it still works fine, although I did change to get something faster, maybe not a good idea!

Oops, there should have been a URL in my last comment. :(

http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox:Password_Manager_Debugging

That explains how to enable debugging output.
