Firefox private browsing mode disables lastpass password manager functions

more options

Having always use private browsing mode selected disables functions in the Lastpass password manager. 1) it disables the remember login email address and 2) it disables the website loges from being displayed.

I have been in contact with Lastpass tech support and they have elevated it to a level 3 tech support rep.

Any suggestions?

Why are you using Private Browsing mode all the time? Specifically - what benefits do you feel it gives you?

In PB mode all data is kept in memory and localstorage is disabled and this prevents LastPass from accessing its data in localstorage.

Even with private browsing mode being deselected lastpass functions still fail. Have deleted both firefox and lastpass and reinstalled and issues remain. I also have Microsoft Edge and lastpass installed. There are no such issues in Edge.

When i disabled private browsing mode one set of issues cleared but others remain.

I previous post I forgot to mention that at Lastpass the issues is now elevated to highest tech support level. They have confirmed one issue and are researching the others.
