Remember passwords is grayed out all the sudden

The "Remember Passwords" is grayed out. It has been working just fine and just stopped! How do I fix this?

Re: Remember passwords is grayed out all the sudden

  • 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 features like visited links are disabled and not showing
  • You are in Private Browsing mode if you see "Tools > Stop Private Browsing", possibly grayed
  • You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"
  • To see all History settings, choose: Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
  • Uncheck: [ ] "Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session"

I had to re-install firefox to get the "remember passwords" to work again. This is a "flaky" browser problem. You would think firefox would get this fixed rather than have all those false and misleading fix posts they put on the forum!!
