You have a bunch of plugins installed in your firefox, that are titled "Netscape".

If you didn't install them on purpose and if you are sure they are not important for the functioning of your system, consider deleting them.

To enhance the features of your firefox copy using firefox plugins, please browse the addons directory.

Do you mean names and passwords in the Password Manager or do you mean that you are no longer logged on to (remembered by) websites after closing and restarting Firefox? If the latter happens then you have a problem with cookies that are not kept or the file that stores the cookies is corrupted. Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie that you must allow: Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Exceptions" Make sure that you do not use Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox to clear the 'Cookies' and the 'Site Preferences'.

Password manager won't remember all passwords like Netscape 9 did. Netscape nine remembered over 50 I had in there. Firefox only remembers about 4 or 5 I did not install any addons or plugins I only installed firefox for a few sites that no longer support the older browsers like YOUTUBE. I am probably going to say the hell with those sites and go back to the old trustworthy browser.
