first. i do NOT use norton. i am a web developer and some time ago i ran into a problem displaying my pages in firefox/mozilla when i would update them. i cant remember exactly what the problem was, but i did a google search and found a way to disable it. it was NOT using the menu interface button (tools/options/security) as this is grey.
i want to turn this back to default. thanks for any help. i dont want to uninstall mozilla and reinstall if possible.

Please first update to Firefox 19 (Update Firefox to the latest version) then read Password Manager - Remember, delete, change and import saved passwords in Firefox to change the settings to the password manager.
i upgraded. then i tried that. did not work. if you read my question you will see that the option under tools/options/security to save passwords was GREYED OUT. it still is.
this setting was modified by editing a file the program uses. i seem to remember changing a number from 3 to 1 (not sure of the numbers. seemed like there was a range of 5 to 1, and 1 was to never remember anything.
does this ring a bell? thanks again for any help.
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing mode.
- Tools > Options > Privacy: Use custom settings for history
- Deselect: [ ] "Always use private browsing mode"
so some sites will not save passwords? (btw, thanks for the help)
Website can use autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving and filling the name and password.
You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save the name and password.
