Firefox Requesting To Save Passwords I choose "Never" To Save

I've searched for answers but this seems to be a bit different than those who have asked relevant questions regarding the passwords being saved by those who have none saved at all. I do have sites with passwords saved in Firefox, but I get the annoying repeated prompt asking if I want to save passwords for sites I do not never want saved. These sites are almost all financial and when I logon to them as Firefox asks if I want to save the password/username, and I always choose "Never". Now I think when I choose "never" (for that particular site) that I will not get prompted again, but Firefox prompts the same request over and over again for the same sites I visit regularly.

I recently switched back to Firefox after using Chrome for a few years as it was faster, but it has become slower loading web pages and is just too big. But I have never had a problem with Chrome asking again to save passwords once I chose "Never" to save. Firefox isn't keeping an internal never ask list on its own as I look at the exceptions and nothing is listed. If it's something I have to add manually, then why have Firefox give me the choice of "Never" to save passwords for ***** sites when I logon to them?

Thanks!

On system restart I lost my tabs. Instead old tabs from a previous session appeared in two separate windows. I then closed Mozilla Firefox 69.0 (64bit) and none of my saved (pinned) tabs came back just my launch page. I don't remember changing any setting specifically having to do with pinning, restoring, or saving sessions so I'm confused as to why my pinned tabs seem so to be behaving so oddly. Please help with any suggestions. I need to get this fixed so i can get back to not having to worry about important tabs becoming "lost" - In advance, yes I know I can get them back in the history this question is specifically centered around fixing this issue.

Getting pretty fed-up with this issue.

Here's the scenario... Firefox power user here. I use it for several tabs and work throughout the day. Once ANY Firefox session is open for a few hours, when I try and click and drag a file into the browser, for operations such as e mail attachments, my browser completely crashes, and I lose all of my tabs and progress.

It has happened almost every day for the last year, and if I cannot get an answer I will sadly have to switch browsers as repeated patterns of time wasted is not my jam.

Force firefox to use unicode

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.

I was able to sign in. Left home for a couple of days. When I returned, I was not able to log in. Still can't log in on Mozilla, but can log in with IE (which I hate). So issue is obviously with Firefox. This is a work email, so I need access ASAP.

I had a problem where cached information was being placed on login forms automatically, so I downgraded from 69.01 to 69. When installing I got a message something about the profile will have to be deleted as going back to older versions is not allowed.

Is this normal for going back to an older firefox version? I had this before around version 68.
