Hi Hanan,

For some reason Lockwise may not be picking up this login automatically which could be an issue you have to take to bugzilla. However, a temporary fix would be to manually Add a login to Firefox Lockwise for desktop.

Is this about storing the username and password in Lockwise or about a website log you in automatically ?

The latter is a feature that uses a special cookie to remember you and you need to keep such cookies.

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.

  • do not clear the Cookies
  • do not clear the Site Preferences
  • clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data
  • clearing "Cookies" will remove all selected cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep

You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you:

  • create a cookie allow exception with the proper protocol (https:// or http://) to make a website remember you
  • use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" to let cookies without allow exception expire when Firefox is closed
  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Permissions" and "Exceptions"
