After I type in the password, firefox prompt asks me remember password? I click "remember password", but nothing happens. The prompt is still there. My password is not remembered. Next time it will ask me again.

Thanks for help!

It is possible that there is a problem with the files key3.db and signons.sqlite that store the encrypted names and passwords in Firefox.
Rename the files key3.db and signons.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.
You can add .old to the file names (key3.db.old and signons.sqlite.old) or move them to another folder to make it possible to undo the action.
You need to set a new Master Password after renaming or deleting key3.db and all currently saved passwords are lost.
If that has worked then you can remove the renamed files that are no longer needed.


You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
