How to Stop Mozilla Firefox from Asking to Remember Password

Posted by Mayank on July 1, 2014 in How To

I updated to newer versions of Mozilla Firefox and started to see this annoying problem – it will keep pestering me to save password. While there are a few sites I may be okay to save passwords, but for most of the sites and security breaches of all kinds happening every single day – I have to be careful with my passwords.

I read this somewhere and liked it a lot:

“The only strong password is one which you can not remember”

With hundreds of password to remember, it is no longer possible to create strong passwords and then remember them as well. While I do use a password utility, I’m careful with any other app or browser which tries to remember my password.

Hence, I had to do something for this annoyance of Firefox trying to remember my password every time I login to any site. Fortunately, the solution was equally easy to implement. If you would also like to stop Firefox from trying to remember your password, this is what you need to do:

  1. Go to Open Menu located in the right most part of the screen, just below the close button.
  2. Go to Options
  3. Go to Security
  4. Uncheck the option which says “Remember Passwords for sites”

That’s it. Your browser is safe again!
