How do I set the newest version of Firefox to remember passwords for websites ?
Well, ... let me restate that. I think my current version DID remember passwords for me but now it doesn't . I access the options and go to privacy and security but it doesn't highlight to allow me to click on " remember passwords........................ " How can I fix this ?

Are you running in Private Browsing mode when trying to set that preference?
Purple Firefox app button?
I DO see that my "Private Browsing" is on, ... I don't remember activating it. I tried, ... but I can't get it to turn off.
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing mode.
- Tools > Options > Privacy: Use custom settings for history
- Deselect: [ ] "Always use private browsing mode"
You can also check that you aren't starting Firefox with a -private command line switch.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
- Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
If you do not keep changes after a restart then see:
