Prior to updating to 3.6.13 saved usernames and passwords worked as they should (those fields were automatically filled in). Now after installing 2.6.13 most saved login info will not fill in upon entering the web site. I can go to tools, options, security, saved passwords and all are still listed, yet do not work. I have deleted a couple thinking Firefox would then ask to save login data for that same site, but it doesn't. I tried reverting back to my previous version of 3.5.16 bur saved passwords will no longer work there either.

It seems as if Firefox doesn't see the saved info.

Cor-el: Thanks for your prompt reply to my post. You hit the nail right on the head. Followed your advice and my remembered logins now work as they should. Thanks again,
