I accidentally declined to save a login and password for a website I use frequently and I can't find how to fix that. It's not in Logins & Passwords

Firefox explains how to save a login/password but doesn't tell you what to do if you accidentally decline that feature when it asks. Every time I go to my online intuit account I have to manually enter the log in info because I accidentally declined to have Firefox save the login info when it asked me. I looked in Firefox Preferences>Privacy & Security>Logins and Passwords and finally in Exceptions & Logins. It's not in either of those places. It shows logins that I DO have but it doesn't tell me how to add logins for websites that I declined saving them in the past. When I go to the website Firefox won't ask me anymore if I want to save the login... AAHH! Help please?

If you update to Firefox 70 then you get the Lockwise Password Manager. This new Password Manager has a button to add a new password.

Hi nicole3, You can try Forget About This Site. All history items (browsing and download history, cookies, cache, active logins, passwords, saved form data, exceptions for cookies, images, pop-ups) for that site will be removed. Basically, everything except bookmarks.

Click on the Library button (books on a shelf) on your toolbar. Select History Right click on one of the entries for that site and select Forget About This Site you will need to enter your Master Password (if you use one)

Navigate to the site again When you sign in Firefox should ask to Save the login information.

Thank you, I tried both suggestions and the first one did not work (going through the history and forgetting the link). Then I did the update to Firefox 70 and got into the Lockwise Password Manager and was able to add the log in there. What a huge help this was. Thanks so much!!
