Check Tools -> Options -> Security.

And check "Remember passwords for site"

And click Exceptions -> Remove All.

uninstall firefox. check the remove config box or w.e was that called


reinstall and it should be fixed... use stable versions not the beta ones if I were you... also try ccleaner or tuneup to clean registry some app leftovers :P

Happened to me as well. Turns out that I had adjusted some of the options on the Privacy tab in a manner that effectively enabled privacy mode.

Are you using FFox 3.5 or later? If so, check your privacy settings.

Just got home and looked. I had it set to "Never Remember History". You might want to give that a look.
