How can I resave my password if it's not saved anymore?

Posted

I may have told history to forget a site and now the password isn't saved. It isn't asking me if I want to save my password even after I change it. How do I save my password again if the bar for saving won't come up?

You can check the exceptions: Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: Exceptions

See Password Manager - Remember, delete and edit logins and passwords in Firefox - See also Use a Master Password to protect stored logins and passwords --- Make sure that you not run Firefox in Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history mode. In Private Browsing mode some menu items are disabled (grayed) and some features like visited links and others are disabled and not working. You are in Private Browsing mode if you see "Tools > Stop Private Browsing".
