Firefox Requesting To Save Passwords I choose "Never" To Save

Tom
Posted

I've searched for answers but this seems to be a bit different than those who have asked relevant questions regarding the passwords being saved by those who have none saved at all. I do have sites with passwords saved in Firefox, but I get the annoying repeated prompt asking if I want to save passwords for sites I do not never want saved. These sites are almost all financial and when I logon to them as Firefox asks if I want to save the password/username, and I always choose "Never". Now I think when I choose "never" (for that particular site) that I will not get prompted again, but Firefox prompts the same request over and over again for the same sites I visit regularly.

I recently switched back to Firefox after using Chrome for a few years as it was faster, but it has become slower loading web pages and is just too big. But I have never had a problem with Chrome asking again to save passwords once I chose "Never" to save. Firefox isn't keeping an internal never ask list on its own as I look at the exceptions and nothing is listed. If it's something I have to add manually, then why have Firefox give me the choice of "Never" to save passwords for ***** sites when I logon to them?

Thanks!

hi tom, what are your privacy settings - did you choose to clear site permissions at the end of each session (this would also clear the sites you've specified should never ask about storing a password). otherwise 3rd party tools meddling with firefox internals like ccleaner might also play a role in the observed behaviour...
