New Lap Top. Downloaded and installed Firefox Browser 80.0.1 (64-bit). I am unable to Edit/select, customize some options. For Example: I am unable to choose to have Firefox ask to save passwords. I can add them one by one when viewing logins and passwords. Its time consuming and cumbersome. Why can I not turn this option on??

Chosen solution

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

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

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
