I have previously not saved passwords how do I change the setting to now save them?
I have not used the password saving function in Firefox - choosing not to save them. I want to change this so all my passwords are now saved. I can't find any clues or any information to allow me to do this. Should I delete everything and start again?

Have read article several times. Can't work out how I know if a site has barred password saving? Also checked exceptions list - nothing recorded. Sites I have previously not saved passwords for still will not let me save them now. Is the exceptions list the only was this can be reset?
Sorry to be a bit of a dummy.
Did you make sure that you haven't set exceptions for those websites?
Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: Exceptions
Also make sure that you not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history mode
- You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"
- To see all History and Cookie settings, choose: Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
- Uncheck: [ ] "Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session"
Private browsing always =off.
Use of bookmarlet interesting have loaded it and will try.
Thanks, computers a bit hi tech for me but I can fix broken steam engines!
Do you have that problem on all sites or only on a specific website?
If the latter is the case then please provide for link. Then we can check the code on that web page.
I had this problem too but I seem to have solved it. I went to the Privacy settings in Firefox Preferences clicked on 'Use Custom settings for history' and discovered that I was configured to 'Automatically start Firefox in private browsing'. I unchecked this preference and restarted Firefox and everything works fine now
