Windows 7: Firefox, W7, And Passwords ?

Firefox, W7, And Passwords ?

Hello,

I imagine a lot of you folks are using Firefox.

Works fine, except for one thing, which I would really like to get to function.

It's their Password Manager.

Under Tools/Options/Security, I do have the remember Passwords box checked.

But it never seems to grab them for its file, or to place them in the Password
and Username box when I visit a site that asks for them.

Would really like to get it going.

Any thoughts as to what I might have configured incorrectly, or...?


BTW: I did look at extra password manager programs, like LastPass, but frankly it's a lot morew than what I need or require. All I would like to be able to do is that when I go to a site, it fills in the Password and Username automatically.
Don't need any formfilling, etc.

Thanks,
Bob

well i find with firefox, if you type your username in, it will automatically fill the password slot.... and of course once your usernames been typed once, you only need the first letter and you can autofill anyway
