I work on fire fox and then one time I open firefox it does not remember my passwords and I have to resign on to firefox and it asks me to sync. I do have firefox on my android tablet and android phone so why do I have to keep signing on and resyncing I don't want to sync I just want to open firefox and have it remember my passwords. This continually making me sign in to my my home page account is making me angry

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address box. 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
