Based on your description there are a couple of possibilities.

One is form autocomplete, you can find details on using that in the Control whether Firefox automatically fills in forms and Firefox doesn't save web form entries articles.

As you mentioned logging into sites, another possibility is the option to remember passwords. The Password Manager - Remember, delete and edit logins and passwords in Firefox and Usernames and passwords are not saved articles give more details.
