Using the section Firefox Help= Passwords (Remember passwords for site) I can not get Firefox to remember the passwords when signing into Goggle sign in page. . Using the exceptions section it will not let me add a new site ,only remove current listed sites. Currently I have a PC and a laptop both with windows 7 , I was able to get the lap top to remember but not the PC .I don't remember how I did the lap top as that was almost a year ago . Been playing with this issue sense Nov.2011 , date of new PC. Thanks for your time and help

The website is using autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving the name and password.

You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save the name and password.

You can create a new bookmark (name: Remember Password) on the Bookmarks Toolbar via the right-click context menu and paste the JavaScript bookmarklet code including the javascript: label in the location field.

You can create a bookmark with the JavaScript code via a right-click on the "Remember Password" link on the website and choose "Bookmark This Link" and select the "Bookmarks Toolbar" as the destination folder for easy access.

javascript:(function(){var ca,cea,cs,df,dfe,i,j,x,y;function n(i,what){return i+" "+what+((i==1)?"":"s")}ca=cea=cs=0;df=document.forms;for(i=0;i<df.length;++i){x=df[i];dfe=x.elements;if(x.onsubmit){x.onsubmit="";++cs;}if(x.attributes["autocomplete"]){x.attributes["autocomplete"].value="on";++ca;}for(j=0;j<dfe.length;++j){y=dfe[j];if(y.attributes["autocomplete"]){y.attributes["autocomplete"].value="on";++cea;}}}alert("Removed autocomplete=off from:\n"+n(ca,"form")+"\n"+n(cea,"form element")+"\n\nRemoved onsubmit from:\n"+n(cs,"form")+"\n\nAfter you type your password and submit the form, the browser will offer to remember your password.")})(); 

You need to use the "Remember Password" bookmarklet before or after filling the name and password field on the website with the login form, but before submitting the login form by clicking a button on the web page.

If the site is using autocomplete="off" then you see a number not equal to 0 (i.e. attributes were removed) in the pop-up alert from the bookmarklet and Firefox should offer to remember the name and password via a drop down dialog of the key icon that will appear on the location bar (Firefox 4+) or via an info bar at the top (Firefox 3).
