How do I make the "Remember Passwords" option stay checked between sessions?

Postáilte

When I check the box for "Remember logins for sites," everything works just as it supposed to. But when I close/restart Firefox, the selection is deleted, and I have to go in and recheck the box for each session. How do I make my selection permanent?

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 have it present but are not using it.

Trend Micro = any chance one of those disabled extensions involves saving passwords to Trend Micro and is overriding the Firefox Password Manager?

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.

Not that I can see. I have a few add-ons, but I don't see anything that would cause this, unless AdBlockerPlus could, somehow. I can go to Options in a new tab and reset the selection, then go back to the original tab and refresh the page, and voila! my password shows up.

Mucho frustrating.

Please try this; Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).


Make changes as you want them to be. After Close Firefox. Wait for a slow count of 30. Then start Firefox in Safe Mode Again. Is the problem still there?

Thanks, Fred. It didn't work (tried it a coupe times to make sure), but that "safe mode" startup is a good tick to know.

Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons (extensions and themes). If the problem goes away, that tells us one thing. If it does not, that tells us something else.


Do the above again. But this time;

You will have to check at its support site.

Thanks. I found the procedure (extremely convoluted), but there is no option to have networking, so Firefox won't run.

I'm ready to give up and switch back to one of the browsers that I abandoned a few years ago. :-(
