A while back I entered a password into a website - firefox then asked me if I wanted it to remember the passord for me. I selected the option to never offer to remember passords for this saite again... Now I have changed my mind - I'd love firefox to remember my password for this site, but I have no idea how to undo my previous selection.

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, on the menu bar, click on the Tools and select Options.
  2. Select the Security panel.
  3. If it isn't already check marked, check Remember passwords for sites.
  4. To the right of Remember passwords for sites, click the Exceptions button.
  5. Make sure that the site you're trying to log in to isn't in the list.
    * If it is, select the entry and click Remove.
  6. Click Close.
  7. Click OK to close the Options window.

Now that you've configured Firefox to remember passwords, try logging in to the site again.

Go to : Tools > Options > Security

Under passwords section:

Make sure "Remember passwords for websites is checked", then click the exceptions button and delete your site from that list.

Note: For Ubuntu and some other types of linux, Tools > Options is Edit > Preferences
