The new Firefox 44 update is a complete disaster.
Woke up Friday morning to a new version of Firefox on my tablet/laptop and all my stored logins and passwords GONE!
I also have SYNC enabled across my desktop, tablet and phone so luckily they still existed on my desktop. Tried to force SYNC to reload my logins, it REFUSED! Waited hours, nothing. Looked into possible update issues and how to resolve it, total waste or time, not the solution. At this point I don't know how or why it failed to import the logins and passwords to FF 44 but sync didn't fix it, nor did any suggestions on how to force a failed import to work.
Went to my desktop and tried to export those logins/passwords and there's no native way to do that in Firefox. Really? Never needed to import/export my logons before since I'm using SYNC on all my devices, which in this case turned out to be 100% USELESS!
So next I installed PASSWORD EXPORTER add-on in my desktop and dumped all the stored passwords then imported them on my tablet/laptop.
Everything is fine, right?
2 days later, today (Sunday) when I go to my desktop FF had installed a new update, FF 44, and now all my logins and passwords were also GONE on my desktop machine!
So this is not an isolated incident, every machine that's upgraded goes POOF!
All my machines are running the latest and greatest version of Win 10 so it's not some old obsolete Win XP or Vista that may have strange interactions, this is a repeatable case of FF 44 update and stored logins vanish.
EXPORT YOUR STORED LOGINS NOW!
Also, full screen Youtub video jitters and jumps like it's on crack or something. When it's not full screen it's just fine and other video players still work properly, just YouTube full screen video is trash.
Just to make sure it wasn't YouTube being a problem, I tried Chrome and Edge running full screen video and it's just fine, only Firefox.
This is probably the worst updat te I've ever seen.
If they don't fix it, might be the end of me using Firefox as I lost a lot of time trying to figure out what was wrong with the logins and why it dumped them and sync wouldn't recover them to no avail. At this point, I have no proof sync is even working, I manually forced sync several times, nothing changed, it's useless.
Anyone having the same problem?
