On LINUX Firefox stops saving input fields values while saving the page

Normally when we save a page Firefox is saving values of input fields, too. Such as text field value, textarea value, radio buttons value. Just a simple use case. take one of these urls: data:text/html,<input type="text"> data:text/html,<textarea> data:text/html, Enter some data and save the page. Entered data will be saved as well. Currently, I have two Firefox profiles on two different Linux (Ubuntu) machines when Firefox doesn't save input fields while I am using these profiles. When I create another profiles, input fields are saved again. So, it is profile based issue. Firstly I noticed this strange behavior several years ago. Then I created a new profile and imported everything from the "bad" one. I am still keeping that "bad" profile on my old Ubuntu box. Now I have two more "bad" profiles on two different boxes. Is there any explanation of this behavior? Is it just a bug? Thanks, Yury
