FF 31 password manager does not remember settings

Been away for a while and despite my anti Australis feelings, I still give it a try sometimes to see what changes. In previous FF versions when I went to my online bank, there was no pop-up of the password manager. This of course was fine because of security. But now with FF 31 when I go to my bank, I get the pop-up of the password manager asking if I want to remember the password. I choose not to and also choose not to remember the password. But this setting is not remembered: each time now when I go to my online bank, I get the pop-up of the password manager.

If you choose "Never Remember Password for This Site" in the drop down menu, it should not prompt again. More information here.

You can inspect and manage the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab via these steps:

  • Click the "Site Identity Button" (globe/padlock) on the location/address bar
  • Click "More Information" to open "Tools > Page Info" with the Security tab selected
  • Go to the Permissions tab (Tools > Page Info > Permissions) to check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab

You can inspect and manage the permissions for all domains on the about:permissions page.


Current Firefox releases have support for remembering the password when autocomplete=off is used in the login form.

You can toggle the signon.storeWhenAutocompleteOff pref to false on the about:config page to disable this feature.

Note that Firefox won't auto-fill saved form data automatically when autocomplete=off is used, so double-click the empty name field to get a drop-down list.
