I told Firefox to never remember a website login user/pass but now want to revert this. I have looked for this option but can only find the remembered user/pass. There is an option at the bottom of the chrome password list, but not in firefox.

Can someone please point me to the area that i can remove this "never remember logins for this site"

Thanks in advance

Can't you find that exception in "Settings -> Privacy & Security" ?

You can remove all data stored in Firefox for a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History -> Show All History" or "View -> Sidebar -> History").

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox for this domain like history and cookies and passwords and exceptions and cache, so be cautious. If you have a password or other data for that domain that you do not want to lose then make sure to backup this data or make a note.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of involved files.

If you revisit a 'forgotten' website then data for that website will be saved once again.

I did find this link and have checked, but there are no exeptions in the list.

Exceptions

The Exceptions button in "Tools -> Options -> Security / Passwords" opens a window that lists the web domains from which you chose never to store passwords. If you later decide that you do want to store a password from a site on the Exceptions list, you will need to remove that entry. That is done in the same way you would delete a password, by highlighting the entry and clicking the "Remove" button (or pressing the Delete key).


so still looking for help.

The AutoFill/AutoSave login is either off or on there is no in-between beyond the user themselves going the password manager and deleting individual logins.

Note that you can always use "Create New Login" at the bottom of the left panel on the about:logins page.
