Firefox refused to remember my password
Normally my passwords are remembered fine, but for my most frequently used work email the feature does not work in Firefox 3.5.3; I carefully followed instructions on https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/username+and+password+not+remembered but this gives the impression that if your password is still not remembered then it must be a site which is configured not to remember it; this is not true as it works fine for me on other computers using same Firefox browser.
Incidentally, some may doubt if I saw the "Remember password" bar at top the first time I access this site, and blame user error, however, I took particular note of this when I first logged on to site on this machine and no such option appeared.
My problem was quickly solved following these instructions:
Perhaps Firefox could incorporate this as an official way of doing this on their help page (referred above), which when you have exhausted their suggestions leaves you thinking there is no solution!
