I've been having a great deal of trouble with Firefox lately on my MS Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10. It began with my passwords not automatically filling in. I tick the check box and next time I start Firefox, it's unchecked. I tried all of the troubleshooting ideas I could find here and none of them worked. I tried refreshing. I tried safe mode. I even uninstalled Firefox and deleted the Mozilla folder in %appdata%. Reinstalling a fresh version of Firefox with no add-ons, no extensions and sync turned off still didn't fix the problem. To add to my woes, today I am unable to search from the Firefox start page. When I type a search term, the progress indicator just swirls away and nothing happens. The same goes if I type the search in the address bar or the search box in the new tab page. If I open up a Google page, the search works fine. There's obviously something on my system that is interfering with Firefox, but for the life of me, I don't know what it is. The only thing that comes to mind is my antivirus, Trend Micro, but disabling it didn't help. The issue with the passwords started a little over a week ago (at least, that's when I noticed it) and I only noticed the search problem today.

I want Firefox to remember my history at websites so I don't have to keep entering my username and passwords. I go into the Menu, click on Options, then Privacy, then choose the option to have Firefox remember my history. After that it works fine. However, when I shut off my computer and then turn it on again later the settings that I chose (to remember history) haven't been saved and I have to go through that whole process of Options, Privacy, Remember My History all over again. How can I get Firefox to remember/save my settings so I don't have to do this each time I turn on my computer? Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

Hello.

I believe one of the recent updates is causing the "Remember Logins for Sites" to be disabled every time I restart my computer. I'll test if it's also when I restart FF, (I restated FF on my laptop and RLFS was left on) . I noticed it because passwords were not being populated automatically (like usual). I found this option off, and turning it back on, allowed the pw fields to be auto populated again. However, after every restart, "Remember Logins for Sites" is off again. It is also happening on my wife's laptop.

Thank you team FF.

After recent upgrade to Firefox 46.0 and 46.0.1 the "Remember Logins for sites" box in Tools, Options, Privacy, Logins, now only remains checked while the computer remains on. When shut down, upon restart the box is unchecked and I have to manually recheck it. It does remain checked if I just close Firefox and then restart Firefox, as long as I don't turn off the computer. This did not happen prior to latest Firefox 46.0. I do not use Trend Micro Security Password Manager, as has been noted in other posts about this same topic.

Firefox is now requiring me to go in to "Options" and select "Remember my logins" and "Remember forms" EVERY SINGLE TIME I use my computer, even if it only fell asleep and was not re-started. This is beyond frustrating. Why the change? Can it be changed back to the way it was? I don't want to have to keep entering my bank routing numbers EVERY TIME I want to pay my mortgage!

It's the option settings keep changing. There is only 2 settings that keep changing, one in privacy (remember history) and one in security (remember login from sites). After you refresh Firefox they are O.K. but restart and you get privacy (use custom settings) and security (remember login from sites is unchecked). Every time you start Firefox you have to go into options and check remember history and check remember login from sites.

I have firefox set to remember certain passwords and usernames. every so often i go to a site that I know has been saved or a new one and it will not install that information to the fields as is normal or won't ask to save them. When I see this I go to the three bars > Options > Security and low and behold the box to save and use saved passwords is UNCHECKED. I RE-check it and it does what i want it to do. Problem comes in later the box will be unchecked again. WHY? How do I stop it from unchecking itself?

On my PC, every time I close Firefox - which I do when I am finished with my internet activity - under TOOLS/SECURITY/LOGINS, the box I had previously checked for "Remember logins for sites", automatically gets unchecked. Then when I open Firefox again, I have to check the box again. It stays checked until I close Firefox and then cycle repeats itself.

Why does this happen. I refreshed Firefox but this did not correct the situation. How can I get Firefox to stop this? I have version 49.0.1

thank you.
