Why "Remember logins for sites" check box is unchecked by default.

Postáilte

Ever since Firefox updated to 45.0.2, the Remember logins for sites check box is unchecked by default. I have to manually go into Security to check the box. Is there a way to make it checked by default

Please advise.

Thank you.

hi, other users of trend micro security software have reported similar issues - the trend micro password manager that might be automatically installed as a separate application on your system might responsible for that behaviour. please uninstall it through your system control panel in case you're not using it.

Some Security Suites add add-ons to Firefox which takeover the saving of Login usernames / password and may disable that pref in Firefox.

Which Security Suite do you have installed?

Note that this is about the signon.rememberSignons pref that you can inspect on the about:config page.

If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:

I just cheeked that and confirmed it is set as "True"

If signon.rememberSignons is true then Firefox should show the Key icon on the at the left end of the location/address bar and offer to store the user name and password if you fill a log in form.

If this isn't happening then you might be in Private Browsing mode or an extension might preventing it.

It is not about Firefox remembering the sign-in ID and password is about the "Remember logins for sites" check box in the Security menu. Whenever I restart my PC, it will uncheck by itself. Before the update, the box is always checked.

Don't know if you're still having the problem, but here is an easy fix...at least it was for me. Of note:

  I had never used Trend Micro's Password Manager. 
  There was no "uninstall" listed in my Windows 10 Apps list, under Trend Micro Password Manager.
  There was no Add-in for Trend Micro Password Manager in Firefox (Tools, Add-ons).
  Firefox had always remembered the logins for sites (I wanted remembered), until just recently.

If you use Trend Micro Security, even if you never activated the Password Manager feature, it may be conflicting with the newest Firefox (for me it started with 46.0) and unchecking the "remember logins for sites" box after every reboot. FIX: Go to Control Panel, Programs & Features (in Win 10), look down the list for Trend Micro Password Manager, highlight and click uninstall. I had to reboot the computer TWICE before it actually worked...the "remember logins for sites" checkbox finally remained checked after the second reboot.

You're welcome...I'm glad it worked for you, too! Hopefully others with the same problem on other posts will find this post.
