Can you explain in a little more detail? Are you saying that the Ask to save logins and passwords for websites option from the Firefox settings page is greyed out or not changeable?

If your computer is part of an enterprise business network, it's possible that this setting is being locked by group policy or another Firefox control method.

It is grayed out, but it's not part of a network. My browser sent me an update alert yesterday and I updated it which removed my adblocker. I reinstalled the adblocker (ABP) but it worked fine in the past with ABP.

Do you see a warning like the one that I have attached at the top of the Firefox settings page?

If you go to the Firefox installation directory, do you see a folder called distribution? If so, what's in that folder?

In the Firefox installation directory and open the defaults folder, what's in that folder?

No, it's not a business network.

I don't know how to navigate to Firefox Install directory and the search w/in settings doesn't bring it up.

3-bar menu (or 'Tools') => Options => Privacy & Security => under 'History' => Firefox will : choose : 'Use custom settings for history' Uncheck : 'Always use private browsing mode'
