Firefox ID/PW and security settings and cookies

I would like to set up Firefox like it worked 5 years ago where I just click on a link and get logged in automatically.

I have stored URLs, IDs and PWs into Firefox's master password area. But apparently, my cookie/security settings/tracking settings are not right because when I click on a link, I don't get logged in automatically.

What settings should I use to get logged in automatically if my URL/ID/PW are in Firefox's Primary Password?

(Ultimately, I would like to use Norton's Password Vault and Firefox, but I think that might be compatible for an auto login?)

Thanks. Rick.

If you are using the Primary(Master) Password you must first enter the Primary when asked.


Type about:preferences#security<enter> in the address bar. Look under Logins,

Note: For Firefox v56+ its; about:preferences#privacy Look under Forms & Passwords Or type about:logins<enter> in the address box. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Turn on Remember Logins. To check the passwords you have listed, press Saved Logins.

Press the Exceptions button and see what's inside.
