I want firefox to remember my email password.

I am tired of always having to type my user name and password every time I want to get on Internet emails. I want Firefox to remember. How do I do this? Also I have trouble on Saturdays with my computer freezing or site just closes.

You can disable the Firefox Password Manager and use form autocomplete to remember the name.

  • How can I get firefox to remember my email password every time?

    When I want to check my email I put in my address; sometimes the password comes up correctly. Other times it puts in an incorrect password; when I click on sign in I get a message saying "Your password was changed ____ hours [0r days] ago. Then I have to type in the password. Why can't it consistently remember; usually, first thing in the morning it has the correct password, and occasionally throughout the day, but not always. This is hugely frustrating and annoying to me.

    Websites remembering you and automatically log you on is stored in a cookie.
    * Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed.
    Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Private Browsing mode.
    * https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Private+Browsing
    If clearing the cookies doesn't help then it is possible that the file <i>cookies.sqlite</i> that stores the cookies is corrupted.
    Rename (or delete) <b>cookies.sqlite</b> (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete <b>cookies.sqlite-journal</b> and <b>cookies.txt</b>, if they exist, in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.

  • How do i set firefox to remember my user id and password for yahoo mail. i've changed my yahoo password, so i want firefox to remember the new ones.

    I want to know how to set firefox to remember my yahoo mail id and password. i've changed my password, but firefox only remember the old password. So, i've erased it in the security settings.

    If the name stays the same and you only need to change (update) the stored password then fill the name in the login form and let Firefox fill the wrong password.
    You may have to press the Tab key to fill the password field.
    If you replace the wrong password with the new password then Firefox should offer to store the new password.
    Yahoo uses "autocomplete=off" to prevent Firefox from saving passwords, so you need to use the ''Remember Password'' bookmarklet.
    You can verify that Firefox has stored the new password: Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: "Saved Passwords" > "Show Passwords"
    If that didn't work then remove that name and password and Firefox should offer to save the new password on the next visit or if you refresh the login page.

  • Someone was playing on my computer and I don't see the "Do you want Firefox to Remember" bar. How can I get it back so I don't have to remember sign-in information?

    I'm thinking that there is just a simple correction that I need to make.
    Here's what I don't see (what follows if from memory and is not exact).
    Do you want Firefox to Remember?
    This is followed by "always for this site", "never" or "not now"
    I don't ever get that bar anymore AND those sites that I used to be able to automatically get into without entering userid and password, I now have to use my userid and password.
    Can you help?

    * You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History"

    Every time Firefox opened

    A. Delete the Password:

    B. Add Password Exception:
    1. Go to Facebook and log in. When Firefox asks you if you want to save this password, select '''Never for this Site''' . See the attached screenshot.

  • Why wont my iphone 6 remember my email password

    why won't my iphone 6 remember my email password

    Hi melissajb74,
    If you are having issues with your iPhone not keeping your email password, you may want to try some things to troubleshoot.
    First, quit all running applications and test again -
    iOS: Force an app to close
    Next, I would try restarting the iPhone -
    Turn your iOS device off and on (restart) and reset
    If the issue is still present, you may want to restore the iPhone as a new device -
    iOS: How to back up your data and set up your device as a new device
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,

  • I don't want Firefox to "remember" the folders I've saved in from websites before. How do I return Firefox to its old image saving habits?

    I recently got a new computer and upgraded to Firefox 8. Now, when I save an image from a website, Firefox will "remember" and, the next time I save an image, open a random folder that I saved an image in last time I was on that site, and choose to save it there. This wouldn't be a problem if, 1) it wasn't a random folder out of the several I save into, and 2), if I have to cancel out of an image for any reason, the next time I go to save (seconds later, without refreshing/leaving a page), it will have chosen another random folder for me to save in and I'm misplacing my files.
    I'd like to return Firefox to the previous image saving habits, where I have to choose the folder each time, and it doesn't "remember" anything that I've done, as it is only causing headaches.

    I have been frustrated by the same aggravating Firefox 8 "improvement".
    I have several hard drives, several partitions on each hard drive, hundreds of folders on in each partition, and hundreds of subfolders below them. When I am researching something, I download whole Web pages, PDFs, JPEGs, FLVs, and many other files from all over the Web. It is totally frustrating to be taken to different drives all over my computer each time I want to download a new file to the same folder I jut downloaded to. I have to drill up and down drives and folders to get back to where I was.
    In previous versions of Firefox, Save As opened in the last folder I saved to, and all I had to do was create a file name and hit Save. In Firefox 8 I am taken to some totally unrelated subfolder on some totally unrelated drive. The folder in which I last downloaded a file from Wikipedia, Fox News, BBC , Flicker, or any other URL usually has absolutely nothing to do with what I am presently researching.
    Why would anyone want to make the default download be the desktop? Total clutter and confusion. All I want Firefox to do when I hit the Save As button is to open the same folder I last downloaded '''''anything''''' to irregardless of the URL.
    Is there some way via modifying the about:config file that I can change this behavior of Firefox 8?

  • HT4528 My iTunes says I cannot buy anything because I need to verify my security questions. I don't remember my security questions anymore and I don't remember the email password to the old email on my iTunes to change them.

    I am unable to access my iTunes account to buy apps and music and stuff because it keeps saying I have to verify my security questions I made this iTunes account when I was probably 13 and I don't even remember the old email password and I change my email and I've tried sending it to my email and my recent email they keep sending to my old email and I need to somehow change that because I do not remember my security questions or my old password

    How to reset your Apple ID security questions.
    Go to appleid.apple.com, click on the blue button that says 'Manage Your Apple ID'.
    Log in with your Apple ID and password. (If you have forgotten your Apple ID password, go to iforgot.apple.com first to reset your password with a password recovery email)
    Go to the Password & Security section on the left side, and click on the link underneath the security questions that says 'Forgot your answers? Send reset security info email to [email]'.
    This will generate an automated e-mail that will allow you to reset your security questions.
    If that doesn't work, or  there is no rescue email link available, then click on 'Temporary Support PIN' that is in the bottom left side, and generate a 4-digit PIN for the Apple Account Security Advisor you will be contacting later.
    Next, go to https://getsupport.apple.com
    (If you see a message that says 'There are no products registered to this Apple ID, simply click on 'See all products and services')
    Choose 'More Products & Services', then 'Apple ID'.
    A new page will open.
    Choose 'Other Apple ID Topics', then 'Forgotten Apple ID Security Questions'.
    Click the blue 'Continue' button.
    Select the contact option that suits your needs best.

  • I had to change a password stored in Firefox, and now I cannot get Firefox to remember a new password.

    As stated, I was required to change a password, yet the old password still appeared in the field, so I went into settings and deleted the old one, but now I cannot get Firefox to save the new password. And yes, I have wasted a lot of time attempting the "solutions" on the help sites, but nothing has worked. Thank you for any help.

    Make sure that you do not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing mode (Never remember history).
    *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Private+Browsing
    The website may be using autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving form data like name and password.
    You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox store form data like names and passwords.
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/User_name_and_password_not_remembered
    Note that Firefox won't auto-fill saved form data automatically when autocomplete=off is used, so you need to double-click the empty name field to get a drop-down list.

  • I don't want to have to submit email password everytime I check my email on iphone 6

    How can I make it so I do not have to enter my email password every time I check my email on my iiphone 6?

    Using Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars to create an Account is setting up the Mail App.
    One of the parameters that you have to enter to setup an Account is the password.
    Who is your email provider?

  • I want firefox to remember my ID and password on certain web pages. There is no "Option" tab in the Help section (like on my PC) where I could go to Security and checkmark the Remember Password box.

    I would like a window to appear when I log in on a web page to ask me if I want to save my password.
    Also, why is there no "Option" tab on the Help menu in the Mac like it is on my PC?

    After first closing the site's browser window, I cleared the cookies with no problem.
    Next, I opened up the page that is causing my problem. The Microsoft Security window opened up as it should and it was blank.
    The option of whether I was using a public or a private
    computer was blinking on 'public' as it should and I changed that to 'private'.
    The lines for 'Domain/Username' and 'Password" were blank, as they should be at this time.
    I entered whatever I had to on these two lines, then clicked on "log In". At no time, however, did the Firefox toolbar at top of screen (picture file attached) appear and ask whether to remember that password. Yes, the page now opened - and we are back to Square One.
    I am aware that when entering the URL in the address box, a dropdown box opens and contains quite a few URLs identical to the one I am entering just now, or at least connected to pages of the same site.
    I am wondering whether that is what's messing me up? But how can I clear these entries of "websites visited in the past from Firefox's memory?
