forefox wont remember my password
even after UNCHECKING "Always Use Private Browsing Mode", fire fox refuses to remember my eBay password, and all other sites as well. in the security tab, the "Remember Passwords" is CHECKED so there should be no reason for not remembering passwords, it fills in my user id's but when double clicked (multiple times even), it still refuses to auto-fill passwords.

hello, could you go to the firefox menu ≡ > help ? > troubleshooting information, copy the contents of that page and paste them here into a reply on the forum? this might give us a clue what is going on...

Firefox 32 and later builds store the passwords in the logins.json file in the profile folder and no longer use the signons.sqlite file. If you still have the signons.sqlite file that was used in Firefox 31 and older then you could try to recover the passwords saved in that file (you will lose passwords saved in Firefox 32).
You can force Firefox to reimport the passwords from the signons.sqlite file and rebuild the logins.json file.
- reset the signon.importedFromSqlite pref on the about:config page to the default value via the right-click context menu
- delete the logins.json file in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed
When you restart Firefox then you should have the signon.importedFromSqlite pref with the value set to true and you should have the passwords imported in the Password Manager unless there may have been errors.
If you keep having problems then delete the logins.json and signons.sqlite and key3.db files.
You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:
