FF help says 'click on the key icon at the left side of the address bar' to activate the Save PW function. The latest FF has no key icon. What do you do?

I am running Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine, up to date at 1 April 2019. (No this is not an April Fool's joke!)

Some time ago, Firefox (and Thunderbird) stopped saving logins and passwords and as I had better things to do, I just put up with it. Now I would like to sort the problem out, but can find nothing specific on this problem. The closest advice is at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_make-firefox-remember-usernames-and-passwords

On this page the advice is all about clicking an a key icon. Problem is: the latest version of Firefox has no key icon.

When I check under Options-> Privacy & Security->Logins & Passwords the box to tick for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is faded out and does not work.

I have tried to attach screen shots of the instructions described, but they will not load.

I have looked all over Firefox Help but all the answers direct you back to the about instruction about clicking the key icon which is simply not present on my screen.

Other thoughts:-

Could Avast Free Antivirus have given me a 'free trial' that has upset the system?

Could Duckduckgo be in conflict with Firefox about privacy, i.e. password management?

Any suggestions?

Avast anti-virus message on JS:redirect on ebay signin

Hello,

I'm new here been using Firefox for a number of years. I have a computer with Windows 7 using Firefox Quantum 63.0.3 (64-bit). I use free home version of Avast.

This happens only at ebay.com when I click on the 'login' it sometimes comes up with the message 'Threat secured We safely aborted connection to www.ebay.com because it was infected.

However I am still connected and at the sign-in page where i can indeed signin and use ebay normally.

I've tried everything including a complete restore of my computer. I tried another new computer and it gives same message on firefox with Avast. All other browsers including Google Chrome and Avast Secure Browser have no issues.

Do you think this is a false positive with Firefox?

I'm new here and enjoy Firefox . Ebay support said to stop using Firefox! I want to continue using Firefox so please someone with knowledge or experience with this please respond. I did a lot of research on this and it appears people who use Avast or AVG seem to have had the same problems with ebay over the years with this JS: redirect in one variation or another.

Thanks!


edit: removed space on last paragraph as it resulted in horizontal scrolling.

I've contacted Google support, they say my account is still open, it's been 2 months now that I've lost access to this account. I've followed all recovery steps to no avail. I was using the Firefox browser when this happened. The email that I've lost access to is the same one that I used to make my Firefox account, but I have no way to verify it's my account.
