Yahoo password is not saved in my Firefox either, or banks as well..

Go to tools>options>security and click saved passwords and see if your other passwords are saved.

@s00,
Please do not post another screenshot of the window that you see after pressing "Saved Passwords". Your third image/screenshot in your original post was removed by the forum's kind admins because it showed your account names for various websites. Admittedly, you did not show the actual password - it is still not a good idea to give away the account part of security related info.


You can tell Firefox to remember passwords, but websites like Yahoo do not allow Firefox to save the password. It is not a problem with Firefox or any setting that you can change (as far as I know).

FF Passwords

Well for secure (https) sites like banking sites or Yahoo it's possible to use a macro to remember passwords. Obviously it's not a brilliant idea to store important passwords anywhere other than in a securely encrypted application.

You can use a Firefox add on:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...s-for-firefox/

You can set a master password or if you only want to use it to log into Yahoo and the like - visit the login page then start iMacro's by clicking on the toolbar icon and set it to "Record" what you're typing. Once you've logged in - save the Macro and give it a name like "Yahoo login".

Next time you want to log in - display iMacros by clicking the icon, then highlight the required macro and click "Play".

You'll be logged in automatically.
