While logging into google mail, I get a prompt to remember password. I select 'never remember password for this site'. But when I clear my cache and sign in again it prompts me again...

Why does it remember passwords (if I select that option) and not delete them when I clear my cache, but delete the preference about not remembering the password.

So how do I get it to remember the passwords I have saved and remember my preferences for not remember when the cache has been deleted. I tried deactivating 'remember passwords for sites' in options but then it doesn't remember the passwords I have already saved.

I want it to be able to remember passwords for the sites I have save passwords, then never ask me again when I log into other sites

It wasn't a problem until I upgraded to Firefox 4 as the new prompt is so big and annoying

I delete my cache multiple time daily as I design web pages and need to refresh the content.

Chosen solution

Do not use Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox to clear the "Site Preferences"
Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.
