Why can't firefox remember my logins and passwords without me having to manually check this every time I open the browser?

Every time I open Firefox I need to go in and manually check "Ask to save logins and passwords". If I don't do this every page I go to where I need my password, I need to… (read more)

Every time I open Firefox I need to go in and manually check "Ask to save logins and passwords". If I don't do this every page I go to where I need my password, I need to manually enter my password. After I check this, I don't have a problem.... but I would have expected that Firefox would keep my settings, even after I close the browser. This has been happening for years.... and yes I have the latest browser. Also I'm using Windows 10.

I never want FF to remember my logins. The first thing I do is un-check the Security>Logins>Remember Logins for Sites. However, whenever I restart FF this check box is checked off again and FF asks me if I want to remember logins.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled FF. I've tried this on a different laptop. I've created a new FF profile and deleted the old. Nothing works. This is the sole reason why I end up having to go back to Chrome for my daily browser.

On my PC, every time I close Firefox - which I do when I am finished with my internet activity - under TOOLS/SECURITY/LOGINS, the box I had previously checked for "Remember logins for sites", automatically gets unchecked. Then when I open Firefox again, I have to check the box again. It stays checked until I close Firefox and then cycle repeats itself.

Why does this happen. I refreshed Firefox but this did not correct the situation. How can I get Firefox to stop this? I have version 49.0.1

thank you.

I have firefox set to remember certain passwords and usernames. every so often i go to a site that I know has been saved or a new one and it will not install that information to the fields as is normal or won't ask to save them. When I see this I go to the three bars > Options > Security and low and behold the box to save and use saved passwords is UNCHECKED. I RE-check it and it does what i want it to do. Problem comes in later the box will be unchecked again. WHY? How do I stop it from unchecking itself?
