Firefox doesn't fill in login form anymore, all credentials are available in "login and password" section - "remember logins and passwords for websites" in settings is grayed out and unmarked - "Always use private browsing mode" in history section is unmarked - "signon.rememberSignons" in "about:config" is set to false and locked (I don't know there is some connection with my case but during googling I found this as one of the solution)

Are you using a password add-on/program?

In Firefox 63+ you can check the about:policies#active page to see what policies are active.

You can check if you have a policies.json file.

The policies.json file should be here:

  • Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/distribution/policies.json

- I don't use "password add-on" (I have default firefox lockwise) - I don't have "policies.json" file, actually I even don't have "distribution" directory. Inside "Firefox.app/Contents/Resources" I have following dirs: browser, defaults, en.lproj, gmp-clearkey, res. Should I create it? With what content? or should I just execute command, something similar to: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/org.mozilla.firefox OfferToSaveLogins -bool "true" - in "about:policies#active" the key "OfferToSaveLogins" is set to false

The other way to lock a preference externally is with an "Autoconfig" file. This involves two different files, as described in these articles:

If your computer is used in a managed environment such as a company, you should check with your IT before removing any policy or autoconfig files. If it's a home computer, hmm, why are those there?

On Mac it is possible to a plist file (org.mozilla.firefox.plist). This is similar to using GPO on Windows.

From:

On MacOS, policy support is implemented using a properties list file or .plist file that can be configured to customize policies. You would need a special utility to inspect or edit a plist file.
