Firefox does not log in
I have used Opera for about a year.. before Opera I always used Firefox, Now that I want to come back to Firefox it does not keep me logged in on some sites like: google, Outlook, Paypal, etc, etc
In my privacy settings I've checked everything, and it says that Firefox is auto-filling in passwords... I need help please.

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.
Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.
Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.
Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
