I cannot activate the "remember passwords of visited sites.

The choice remains grey when I try to check the box and activate the option. I am running an old 386 tower with a freshly reinstalled Vista OS and Firefox 17.0.1.

Re: I cannot activate the "remember passwords of visited sites.

WHOO HOO - Your answer led me to a solution but it was a little more complicated than your directions. I found I had to go to Options> Privacy> History and then uncheck "Never remember history" and then uncheck "Always use private browsing mode".

Maybe that would be intuitive to experienced users, but it wasn't for me.

No matter. My problem is solved. Thank you for your very prompt reply and help.

Hello rbbeck32, be sure you don't running firefox in private browsing, go from Firefox button > Options > Options> Privacy > un-check Always use private browsing mode.

thank you
