FF help says 'click on the key icon at the left side of the address bar' to activate the Save PW function. The latest FF has no key icon. What do you do?

I am running Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine, up to date at 1 April 2019. (No this is not an April Fool's joke!)
Some time ago, Firefox (and Thunderbird) stopped saving logins and passwords and as I had better things to do, I just put up with it. Now I would like to sort the problem out, but can find nothing specific on this problem. The closest advice is at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_make-firefox-remember-usernames-and-passwords
On this page the advice is all about clicking an a key icon. Problem is: the latest version of Firefox has no key icon.
When I check under Options-> Privacy & Security->Logins & Passwords the box to tick for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is faded out and does not work.
I have tried to attach screen shots of the instructions described, but they will not load.
I have looked all over Firefox Help but all the answers direct you back to the about instruction about clicking the key icon which is simply not present on my screen.
Could Avast Free Antivirus have given me a 'free trial' that has upset the system?
Could Duckduckgo be in conflict with Firefox about privacy, i.e. password management?
