No checkbox to remember passwords

It can happen that you will find no checkbox in Thunderbird to remember passwords. To change this, you will need to edit the prefs.js file, located in the Thunderbird profile folder.

1. Close Thunderbird and open the prefs.js file in Notepad or another editor (make a backup copy of prefs.js first, as a precaution).
2. Find the following line: user_pref("signon.rememberSignons", false);
3. Change the value from false to true.
4. Close the Notepad or editor window and save changes.
5. On the next startup of Thunderbird you should find the checkbox for remembering the password in the password manager.

Instead of editing prefs.js, you can change the same setting via about:config. "

OK, so I'm trying to use Mozilla Thunderbird as my email application. The version 2.0 installer from their website is of course 32-bit only, which doesn't help me out much. I went to that Mozilla x64 site that was linked in the "Free 64-Bit software" thread... well, that thing shows up as...
