Under 'Settings' then 'Privacy & Security', I have selected 'Never remember history'

I goto the website 'amaincycling.com' and click or mouse over the 'person' icon next to the 'shopping cart'. In the popup menu, left clicking on 'Log in' does nothing.

Then I change the history to 'Use custom settings for history' and on 'Always use private browsing mode' is selected.

restart Firefox

I goto the website 'amaincycling.com' and click or mouse over the 'person' icon next to the 'shopping cart'. In the popup menu, left clicking on 'Log in' does nothing.

With history still 'Use custom settings for history', uncheck the 'Always use private browsing mode' and the three sub-choices are NOT checked: 'Remember browsing and download history', 'Remember search and form history' and 'Clear history when Firefox close' (This is the same function as 'Never remember history')

Firefox restarts

I goto the website 'amaincycling.com' and click or mouse over the 'person' icon next to the 'shopping cart'. In the popup menu, left clicking on 'Log in' and NOW the login page opens! BUT, I check settings and NOW the 'Remember seach and form history' is also checked which I never checked!

For interest, I had all three sub-choices checked: 'Remember browsing and download history', 'Remember search and form history' and 'Clear history when Firefox close' which is the same as 'Never

The main issue is the left clicking not working when using 'Never remember history'. Why?

And why does 'Never remember history' apparently enable private browsing mode? What does private browsing have to do with 'Never remember history'?

I have had this issue on random websites and it has been a pain in the ...

If private browsing mode is going to interfere with websites like this then maybe when 'Never remember history' is selected, then a check box option should be shown to to check whether 'Always use private browsing mode'

This is interesting, Firefox has a feature where clicking in a Password box brings up the option to"Use a securely generated password" option... which is cool, except that for some reason it's not letting me generate a NEW one on this website I'm on, it keeps giving me the exact same password as my old one!

This is problematic because the website won't let me re-use a previously used password when resetting my password!

How do I tell Firefox to generate a brand new securely generated password?

Hello, I need to change my laptop OS from Linux to Windows. Firefox has all my passwords saved somewhere on the hard drive. I made a firefox account last night so the passwords are portable, but before I hand my computer over to have the OS changed, I want to delete the file with all my passwords on it. I've tried searching the computer for the logins or key4 file mentioned on the website, but it says nothing found. Where does that live? Thanks.

I have tried on windows and on linux, and the same thing happens for both. I don't get the plugins i should have. I want to try and enable java, but its not even appearing in the first place. My profile directory is all messed up as well. I don't have a pluginreg.dat, my extensions.sqlite is an extensions.json. I have been reading all the forums but they mention stuff about the files in the profile, but I don't have those files.

I have lost at least a week of time trying to get my passwords straight & get the password manage to work. I am a 96yr old vet of WWII and the president of 2 non-profits & lay-leader for a Methodist church. So I badly need to get things working. I have been with Fox for probably 30 years & would like to stay & badly need to get on with our business.

Okay, hi- first time here. I have, as far as I know, all my preferences set correctly- clear history and cookies upon shutdown, etc yet EVERY time I reopen Firefox it's attempting to resume my last session which seems to me to be the opposite of how I have it configured so I was wondering what I also need to do to eliminate this privacy concern. Thanks in advance~

I find that when I open the Firefox browser and it opens my homepage it is and older page. I have the settings to delete data and cookies when I close the browser. I have to "refresh" to get a current page. I'm not sure if this is a flaw or if I just missed a setting.

Restart FF, Settings--> Privacy and Security -->View Certificates-->Your certificates, the deleted cert is on the list again.
