I have FF 67.0.4, 64-bit; Windows'10, I have "Options" and Privacy & Security on Content Block set to Standard. I have no exceptions.

Several popular sites work correctly across reboots, saving the ID and PW: - YouTube - Twitter work

Several popular sites do not work correctly across reboots: - Facebook - Pinterest

I booted into Safe Mode, and also disabled everything (ad ons, themes, etc)

But it did not effect FB and Pin.

What specifically do I need to do to get FF to save the ID and PW for FB and Pinterest?

Thanks. Rick.

Is this about passwords stored in the Firefox Password Manager or about website remembering you, so you do not need to login on the next visit?

A detail like a website remembering you (log you in automatically) is stored in a cookie.

You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you:

  • you can create an Allow exception to keep specific cookies, especially in case of secure websites and when cookies expire when Firefox is closed (Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed).
  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: Exceptions

Note that not all website support this 'remember me' feature.
