How to force Firefox to remember a password?

Firefox help says "When you enter a username and password that you haven't already saved for a website, Firefox will ask if you want to save it. "

But it doesn't always. I want it to remember username/password for a particular website, but Firefox doesn't ask. I have "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, and the website is not on my saved logons list. Is there a way to force Firefox to remember the username/password for a particular site, perhaps by manually editing the saved logons list (where is it?)? Thanks.

When I attempt to log in to any site using FB, a pop up screen appears. Somehow, I have placed "1" in the body of the pop up. This freezes the system making it impossible to login to any site requesting FB verificitation. HELP? I am unable to provide a screenshot. This is simply the generic page that always pops up during FB login by Firefox. Only mine has a number "1" in the body.

FF will not save my password for at least one site. The issue is not related to the site. All other Browsers are able to save the user and name and password to this site.

I am using FF 61.0.1. I have noticed that "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is greyed out. I have FF set to remember history. I have already read about how some people who has this problem in earlier versions were able to fix the problem by not using Private Browsing (which I am not) and by launching FF as an Administrator, which also doesn't take care of my problem.

I have even imported the saved logins from Chrome where this works, and even that did not address the issue. If someone can tell me what is causing this to be greyed out, I think that will be the answer to the problem.

Cannot bookmark a certain website

I can't add a bookmark to this address: https://www.pracuj.pl/praca/menager-hotelu-karpacz,oferta,6194759 (it's a job offer on a job offers website, definitely trusted). Some others in this domain work.

When I drag its tab onto a folder in the bookmarks panel, a new item is not created. When I drag&drop a bookmark with another address and change it to the one above, it's not saved. When I right click a folder and add a bookmark with the address above, it's not saved.

What's wrong? I'm sure it's not about HTTPS (it works with other websites) nor non-Latin characters in the address (they're not there). I've already tried the path described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems, with no result. I have the newest Firefox (61.0.1).

This has never happened to me before but today when watching some videos the player size changes leaving a lot of white space on the sides of the video. It seems to be that videos that would generally have black bars on the side are now showing up in a smaller video player but this is not the case with other browsers. For some reason I am unable to post screenshots. Any help is appreciated.

like i said, it won't let me download anything. virus/malware scans come up clean, i don't get any 'error messages' when i attempt a download, and i haven't done anything on my end that would suddenly make firefox misbehave. the 'about firefox' option (under the help tab) says it's up to date. i clear my cache regularly, i use CCleaner for the rest, what am i missing? it's not a 'firewall' issue (i have internet explorer on the same PC, it downloads properly) - am i missing something??

How can I choose which bookmark set to keep, instead of combining the two sets, when syncing two devices?

I have FF on two computers, and other devices. 'Computer 1' is my main computer where I use FF on a daily basis. I'm not always logged into my FF sync on comp 1, while 'computer 2', which I use only occasionally, remains logged in most of the time. So after several days of changing bookmarks on computer 1 without syncing, I log into sync, and it automatically combines the two sets of bookmarks from both computers, so I get a bunch of deleted bookmarks back. That's just annoying because then I have to go through the bookmarks again and delete old stuff all over again.

Is there a way to tell Sync to keep a given bookmark set before performing a sync, instead of combining them? This is not a very smart design. The user should be prompted to make a decision.

My home page is https://uk.yahoo.com/. I'm running Firefox 61.0.2 (64 bit) on Windows 10 at latest maintenance level. When I start Firefox the home page is displayed with the seach field enabled and I start to type my query and the characters I have types are displayed. Shortly afterwards the search field is cleared so I have to start again. This is very annoying. Microsoft Edge does not exhibit the same behaviour on the same home page.

When I attempt to load two Twitch streams in two different tabs, one in each monitor, only the currently "focused" tab will buffer and stream video. The other will have a perpetual "loading circle" as if it is trying to buffer.

Occasionally the suspended stream will SEEM to resume, and attempt to "catch up" by rapidly skipping any missed frames (usually minutes of content skipped over).

If I "click into" the problem tab and bring it into focus, it will immediately play the stream as normal, while the one that WAS playing properly will quickly begin to encounter the same issue.

If one tab is loaded, but not visible, then the audio from it will play without a problem while the other, fully visible tab will play both audio and video as normal.

This issue has only occurred during the past week. It does not occur while watching simultaneous YouTube videos (making me think it is specific to Twitch) and it does not occur when using Google Chrome (making me think it is specific to Firefox).

Since upgrading to package firefox 61.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, the pop-up menus are all invisible.

I can click the "hamburger" menu and nothing visibly happens. But then I can click in the area below it and the invisible menu item is activated. The same behavior happens for things like the Pocket button.

I've tried safe mode and refreshing Firefox. The behavior stays the same in both cases. I'm lost as to what to do other than roll back to an older version.

This issue does not exist in IE or Edge, in fact it only started after version 49 or so. Is there a fix for this in version 61?
