Basilisk does not save passwords

Unread postby Nukley » Sun, 18 Nov 2018, 17:45

So i just started using basilisk, i logged my sync in. To notice all my passwords were gone... In order to fix this, i tried turning off private mode (it wasn't even on anyway). Then i tried to log into a site and save the password, it didn't save. I'm at a loss here, can i please have some help?

What exactly did you sync with? Basilisk probably isn't compatible with Firefox accounts that have also been connected with any version of Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57+).
Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon (64-bit)
Windows 7 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
Windows 10 build 1803 (64-bit) (Sometimes)

I did login with a quantum account, but even quantum doesn't save passwords...

If you also had problems saving passwords in Firefox Quantum before attempting to sync with Basilisk, then that sounds like a separate issue.

Basilisk and Firefox Quantum profiles are not compatible, and attempting to sync them across FxA (Firefox Accounts) likely worsened things. You will have to find a way to manually import or input your passwords without using Sync.

Are you automatically cleaning the cache and cookies etc upon closing basilisk.?
Maybe the browser is clearing passwords too.check your privacy settings perhaps.
