How do I stay signed in when I close & reopen Firefox later? When I was looking at topics to participate in at support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions it asks to sign in….but wouldn’t accept the stored username and password I’ve had for a long time, & when I tried getting a new password sent via email, …well I never received an email! * (& no....it's not in the junk or spam folder .."This folder has no messages...") So I sent a new email to support@mozilla.com, which gets bounced back, ….the reply includes this “….visit the Mozilla Support website at https://support.mozilla.org/..... & ironically from that link it already had my same stored username and password filled out, & that worked, as I’m using it now! So there must be a solution for all users trying to get help… why won’t Firefox accept the same stored username and password? & if that fails….then why aren’t the username and password recovery emails being sent?

I like Firefox to remember the passwords for certain sites. I also use Dashlane but there are sites that Firefox only remembers right and vice versa. Every time I start Firefox I find the "Remember passwords for sites" box unchecked in the security options.

I thought it might be Dashlane doing it but I disabled the program and it made no difference

I jumped at the chance to install Firefox 64 bit at the end of December after using 32 bit version for a number of years. Only now I've realised my passwords and logins are all missing. I've looked at the restore profile suggestions but it seems like 64bit has by default overwritten the 32bit profile, including the passwords, unless it's gone to another place that I cannot locate? Any suggestions for a win10 user to retrieve my lost password?

Thank you

This started happening after I had a web browser hijacker that hijacked Windows Edge. My software company did a remote session and fixed that. But, if using Firefox, at every single site I go to, even yahoo email, it keeps asking me if I want to update my logon information. I have never seen it do that before, it is like it wants me to do that so it can see my new password????? I have no reason to update my logon info, and would do that myself as I feel necessary. I completely removed Firefox, went to Mozilla main site, and downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox, and it is still asking everywhere I go. Do I have another bug in my system that is only affecting Firefox? Edge runs fine now, as does IE but I never use IE anymore. Please help. Robert

Password manager is not auto-filling. The Avast Passwords icon is orange and not locked but when I click on it it says it is not enabled. If I then go to add-ons the only option is to disable it. Doing this and then re-enabling does not help, nor does re-booting. I have had password manager for quite a while and this is the first time I have seen this. I am not aware of any recent updates and I have not changed any settings. oowever, my wife was last to use this computer so who knows...
