If I previously X-ed out of the "save user name and password" option, or clicked no on it.... how do I get it back so I can now have Firefox save a username and password for that same site?

When I set up a computer at work and used it to check on personal accounts real quick, I didn't think I should save my personal info. Turns out I'm the only on using it and I can do whatever I want. The boss will only use Internet Explorer, if he uses my computer at all. And he said he doesn't care what I use it for during slow time. So, now I want to save my personal accounts info on Firefox. But how?

If you've told Firefox to not remember usernames and passwords for a site, you can go into the Firefox privacy options and remove this exception to reset your selection. Click the Firefox button or Tools in the classic menu, then select Options, click the Security tab of the Options window, then click the Exceptions button next to the "Remember passwords for sites" checkbox. Select the site you wish to remove from this exemptions list and click Remove. There's also a Remove All button to reset this list fully if you wish.

Well.... I ran into another problem. I have the updated version and can't seen to find the options menu. There is no toolbar with tools on it. There is only "Most Visited, Getting Started, and Latest Headlines" nothing more. I tried the down arrow where my name is and clicked on Privacy there. Then, clicked on Privacy Tools. All I get is articles. Nothing I can actually use to make changes. This is frustrating, I can't find the Options menu.

  • Press F10 or tap the Alt key to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily if the Menu Bar is hidden.
  • Use "Firefox > Options" instead of "Tools > Options" if the menu bar is hidden.

I had exactly the same problem with YouTube, having previously deleted an account and in the process of setting up a new one at a later date. At the time of deleting I had deleted the YouTube 'Username and Password' from Firefox but could not get it to remember the new, in fact the option to save did not even appear.

I looked in 'Exceptions' but as expected nothing was there. I then remembered that YouTube is now part of Google so went into 'Options/Security/Saved Passwords/Search for 'Google' which brought up all the different Google Usernames and Passwords, in fact some did not have Passwords, and deleted the lot. Went back into YouTube, logged in and Hey Presto was asked if I wished to retain the Username and Password.

What other Google apps I have, I already have saved Usernames and Passwords stored elsewhere so no worries about not getting into them. Seems Google can sometimes be a pain in the neck.

I've tried that too, and it's still not responding.
