Hello.

I believe one of the recent updates is causing the "Remember Logins for Sites" to be disabled every time I restart my computer. I'll test if it's also when I restart FF, (I restated FF on my laptop and RLFS was left on) . I noticed it because passwords were not being populated automatically (like usual). I found this option off, and turning it back on, allowed the pw fields to be auto populated again. However, after every restart, "Remember Logins for Sites" is off again. It is also happening on my wife's laptop.

Thank you team FF.

I want Firefox to remember my history at websites so I don't have to keep entering my username and passwords. I go into the Menu, click on Options, then Privacy, then choose the option to have Firefox remember my history. After that it works fine. However, when I shut off my computer and then turn it on again later the settings that I chose (to remember history) haven't been saved and I have to go through that whole process of Options, Privacy, Remember My History all over again. How can I get Firefox to remember/save my settings so I don't have to do this each time I turn on my computer? Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

After recent upgrade to Firefox 46.0 and 46.0.1 the "Remember Logins for sites" box in Tools, Options, Privacy, Logins, now only remains checked while the computer remains on. When shut down, upon restart the box is unchecked and I have to manually recheck it. It does remain checked if I just close Firefox and then restart Firefox, as long as I don't turn off the computer. This did not happen prior to latest Firefox 46.0. I do not use Trend Micro Security Password Manager, as has been noted in other posts about this same topic.

I've been having a great deal of trouble with Firefox lately on my MS Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10. It began with my passwords not automatically filling in. I tick the check box and next time I start Firefox, it's unchecked. I tried all of the troubleshooting ideas I could find here and none of them worked. I tried refreshing. I tried safe mode. I even uninstalled Firefox and deleted the Mozilla folder in %appdata%. Reinstalling a fresh version of Firefox with no add-ons, no extensions and sync turned off still didn't fix the problem. To add to my woes, today I am unable to search from the Firefox start page. When I type a search term, the progress indicator just swirls away and nothing happens. The same goes if I type the search in the address bar or the search box in the new tab page. If I open up a Google page, the search works fine. There's obviously something on my system that is interfering with Firefox, but for the life of me, I don't know what it is. The only thing that comes to mind is my antivirus, Trend Micro, but disabling it didn't help. The issue with the passwords started a little over a week ago (at least, that's when I noticed it) and I only noticed the search problem today.

It's the option settings keep changing. There is only 2 settings that keep changing, one in privacy (remember history) and one in security (remember login from sites). After you refresh Firefox they are O.K. but restart and you get privacy (use custom settings) and security (remember login from sites is unchecked). Every time you start Firefox you have to go into options and check remember history and check remember login from sites.

On my PC, every time I close Firefox - which I do when I am finished with my internet activity - under TOOLS/SECURITY/LOGINS, the box I had previously checked for "Remember logins for sites", automatically gets unchecked. Then when I open Firefox again, I have to check the box again. It stays checked until I close Firefox and then cycle repeats itself.

Why does this happen. I refreshed Firefox but this did not correct the situation. How can I get Firefox to stop this? I have version 49.0.1

thank you.

This appeared to happen after a recent update as others have said and it is BEYOND annoying. I am a senior citizen and am not fond of having enter my logins and passwords EVERY time I go to a site. I understand about banks and other groups not allowing this information to be stored but other regular sites that I visit DAILY used to allow it. Please correct this mess and/or tell all of us how to detect what sites are SUDDENLY not allowing this information to be stored. Are they not required to reveal that they have this restriction somewhere on their site? Correcting this would save us from endless hours of frustration and time trying to find the answer. Thank you for your help!

I never want FF to remember my logins. The first thing I do is un-check the Security>Logins>Remember Logins for Sites. However, whenever I restart FF this check box is checked off again and FF asks me if I want to remember logins.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled FF. I've tried this on a different laptop. I've created a new FF profile and deleted the old. Nothing works. This is the sole reason why I end up having to go back to Chrome for my daily browser.
