Tracking is the act or process of following something or someone. We don't track your passwords.

Hello! If you are using Mozilla Firefox on your computer, please follow these steps if you have not already done them:

1. Paste about:preferences#privacy on the search bar (the one where you go when entering a website url. 2. Scroll down to the "Logins and Passwords"section. 3. Uncheck the "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checkbox.

See if this helps!

Does that item gets re-checked if you restart Firefox ?

You can check if you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time Firefox starts. The user.js file will only be present if you or other software has created this file and normally won't be present.

You can check its content with a text editor (right-click: "Open with"; do not double-click). The user.js file is read each time Firefox is started and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session. You can delete the user.js file if you didn't create this file yourself.

You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
