Hi Sirhandsome, were you using Firefox's built-in Password Manager, or were you using an add-on such as LastPass?

Info on the built-in feature: Password Manager - Remember, delete, change and import saved passwords in Firefox

@jscher2000, This the first I've even heard of "LastPass" so, I was probably on Firefox's built-in especially, as I am less technologically savvy than most folks (remember, I'm still using a home (desktop) computer. I see the link you provided and will try it & report back. Thanks

Ae you talking about the Password Manager losing your data, or being logged out of websites?

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.
