password default settings keep reverting back to unsaved
HI. I keep having to go in and mark the box to automatically save passwords. Everytime I use firefox it has reset back to not saving the passwords for any of the sites I usually save them for. It's been doing it for a couple of weeks now. I go in and tick the box then have to refresh the site I was on and it will then work. What could be causing this issue please.

Would you please make sure that you're not in permanent Private Browsing mode :
3-bar menu (or 'Tools') => Options => Privacy & Security => under 'History' => Firefox will : choose : 'Use custom settings for history' Uncheck : 'Always use private browsing mode'

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.
Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).
Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.

Are you using external Password Managers like RoboForm or the "Trend Micro Password Manager" ?
If you have the "Trend Micro Password Manager" installed then try to uninstall this application via the Windows Control Panel.
