I am prompted every time i visit a site that i enter a password on to save it in firefox 18, it's now getting annoying. I have tried to turn it off, but the box in firefox settings is shaded and won't allow me to turn password manager off, i know i can choose "never for this site" in the settings but with just about every site you go to now requires you to sign in it is really getting on my nerves. if this can't be resolved i may reluctantly have to change browser.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The instructions at
explain how to change the N360 setting to resolve this problem.
Tested and works. No more unwanted prompts.
hello, do you use a norton security product by any chance? it might interfere with the firefox password management...
otherwise you could try to reset firefox and see if this makes a difference (this will keep your bookmarks and passwords): Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings
yes i use norton 360 and i use idenity safe, so have no requirements for firefox password management, this is the first firefox i have had this problem with it's never been a problem with any other firefox below firefox 18. i have always used norten 360
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing mode.
I do use "custom settings for history" and have never used "Always use private browsing mode"
I haven't changed anything all I did was update firefox from firefox 17 to firefox 18 and all of a sudden this firefox password manager keeps popping up and in settings the box is shaded and wont let me turn it off, if its not sorted in a week or so im changing browser its doing my head in
Very understandable, Steven. My guess is that a addon is causing this. And rather than have you type the names of all your addons, which would very annoying if you have a lot. There's a way you can copy all the information and paste it here.
Please read this article and follow the steps there:
Then after having copied the information, paste it into this thread so I can try to see if one of the addons may be causing this. My guess is a password related addon.
I've found out Norton add-ons are doing it for me, but only since FF18. So apparently something Mozilla did is making third party add-ons bug out. Funny that we went from v3 to v18 in such a short time and most of these updates add support for things that only >0.01% of users actually use and have the side effects of making our favorite add-ons break.
hello insevin, in this case please report the issue to norton's support since they are the only ones who can fix bugs or make necessary adjustments in their addon. thank you...
Ha, sure, it will fall to Norton to fix Mozilla's problems. I already have, I'm sure they will fix it soon.
