I recently activated the Passwords feature from my recent update of my Avast! antivirus. It then prompted me to install the plugin on my browser(s). I installed it on Firefox since that's the browser I use most often. For a couple days the extension was working fine (yellow icon + it would fill in forms for me). But suddenly (yesterday or so) it stopped working. It's greyed-out and it's not filling in forms. When I click on it, it shows that it's turned off. But whenever I click on the toggles to turn the web settings on, It goes right back to off:
When I hover on its icon, it gives this error on the tooltip:
I tried disabling it from the extensions list of Firefox, hoping to go back to using Firefox's native username/password-filling feature, but it doesn't seem to be working either. Not even when I enter the first couple letters of my username (a dropdown suggestion usually appears which I then click and it fills in the fields for me).
I tried re-enabling the Passwords extension but it's still the same. What could be the problem? If the feature is still faulty at this point, is there a way to remove it entirely from my browser so I can use my browser's password feature instead?
Please help. I'm really kinda lost without my auto-fillers.
Both my browser and antivirus are updated to the latest version.
