What is going on with FFox, MS, FBook, Logins and etc ..

#1 Post by KernSpy » Fri Oct 12, 2018 12:00 am

Just last week I got a phone call from a friend asking about her Yahoo & Fbook logins not sticking. She has win-10 so I figured it was something to do with it. A couple days later the same thing happened to on my Sister's Laptop and her FFox. My sister writes down all her credentials in a notebook. I'm not sure what the other woman does. Anyway, yesterday the same thing happened to my Windows 7 64 machine and FFox. I use an old password program that has been around for 20 years. None of my logins are sticking. Every time I visit Amazon, eBay, FBook, Yahoo, YTube, OE/Hmail, Reddit and etc, I have to do a full login. I use a master password in FFox and all the data is still there. I've even did their two-step authentication and it still doesn't stick. I think something is really broken in FFox, or something messed up Win7. Looking into it ...

It wasn't to long long ago I read something about a move/push coming in the future to get away from logins via passwords & usernames. I don't know if it is something to do with that or not? FFox is up-to-date with 62.03. I've got all the current updates for Win_7_64. If it wasn't for all the software & games - I wouldn't even keep a windows computer anymore. I've purchased quite a few games over the years and quite a few from GOG & Steam. One of my favorites is - Ultimate General: Civil War & Gettysburg.

I'm also an old time gamer who likes the classics. I can give up a lot of the (Requires MS) software and will be more then happy to rid myself of the dependency. The games will be a bit harder. :)

I'm wondering how long it will be before this happens to me here in/on Linux? Has this login thing happened to anyone else here on the forum?

I haven't used Windows since Sept. 2015. I am using strictly MX-17.1 Linux on my desktop and laptop with Firefox 62.0.3 and have no login issues on anything. Your problem must be from facebook being hacked.
