I can't get firefox to save my passwords. How do I turn it on?

Posted

Some passwords are saved but now Firefox won't save any sign in's that I use. How do I turn the save back on? I use windows 7.

Did you verify that you aren't running Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History) like I posted above?

  • Options/Preferences -> Security: Logins: [X] "Remember logins for sites"

Also make sure you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy -> Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • Deselect: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"

HI   !
Would you check the following please, just in case you inadvertently changed the setting :

3-bar menu => Options => Security = > Under   'Logins': Make sure that 'Remember logins for sites' is checked.
