Firefox not remembering passwords etc. fix not compatible with ver. 34.05. So what to do?

Posted

Was pleased to find a fix for making my computer remember passwords, but NOT pleased to find that it is not compatible with my FF 34.05! How do I fix this or even go back to a previous version? Noticed that on some sites, the Password Remembering KEY does not show, particularly on Banking sites, so no option to save anyhow!

What fix are you talking about?

Current Firefox versions should offer to remember passwords regardless of the presence of autocomplete=off. Firefox won't offer to remember a password when you are in Private Browsing mode.

Did you make sure that there aren't any exceptions?

You can inspect and manage permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab via these steps:

  • Click the "Site Identity Button" (globe/padlock) on the location/address bar
  • Click "More Information" to open "Tools > Page Info" with the Security tab selected
  • Go to the Permissions tab (Tools > Page Info > Permissions) to check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab
