When I open a particular program, my password is already typed for me. I must have inadvertently told it to remember my password sometime in the past and if so, this was a huge mistake. I would like to go back to where I must type the password each time I access the program.

I have students submitting files to me that must be downloaded for commenting and then returned to them. These files are often in different formats (doc, docx, txt, etc.) but are often named identically (e.g., Writing Assignment.docx) even if I tell students to put their name on them. I need to be able to download these files in a way that firefox will prompt me to change the name "Writing Assignment.docx" to "Student name - Writing Assignment.docx" each time I download one of their submissions. Right now I only have the option to open the file or to save it to a specific location. I do not have the option to download it as a newly-named file. I am currently running the most recent version of firefox (49.0) and Windows 10 x64.

Thank you

With the install of 49.0.1 the user name to log into emails, banksites and other online shopping remains in the system. It never did that before this version. WHY? I know I can turn this feature off in IE and Chrome. Why did Firefox add? I can find no choices under options to turn this feature off. I seem Firefox has remember it for keeps. I deleted Firefox, then rebooted system and then did download of vs 49 again. Same thing happens, except this time, sign in USER IDs are already in the system What can I do to change this Option?????? This should be an optional choice not one that I am stuck with. Please advise. Last few vs of Firefox and kind of gone from bad to worse with more problems, crashes and screen lock ups. I can use Chrome and Opera and no problems. I really like Firefox and have used for years, but maintaining the USER in the system is a no - no for me.

When U go to Yahoo or any other Website to type in USERID, I type the "S" and on a drop on bar there appears all the USER IDs I have that begin with an "S" Not a good idea and I travel frequently and lap top sits in hotel for hours while out shopping or working on a short project. I need help FAST. Thanks for listening.

While listening to pandora in the background, it stop. I open up firefox to see a convincing looking web page that said I needed to update firefox. I clicked the download button and downloaded "firefox-patch". I panicked when I realized this was bogus. I have moved the downloaded file to my recycle bin but realize the harm is done. What do I need to do to fix this. I am still running windows XP on this machine and would like to continue. Please help me. Thanks!

Started a couple of days ago. Tried uninstalling Firefox and downloading and installing a new copy. Didn't help. Every time I click the back button the whole history list drops down. I have to click someplace to close it. Super annoying. Did not start immediately after adding a new add on or anything.
