Thanks for the answer. I've looked in "Exceptions " and the website is not in there. Where else could I look , to get this username to start displaying again?

It is possible that Firefox isn't detecting this login form.

If you update to Firefox 70 then the Lockwise Password Manager will have an option to save a new password. In Firefox 70 Lockwise is a builtin component that isn't available for Firefox 66 and 67 (there is a Lockwise extension for 68/69).


You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.
