how to set up remember previously entered passwords function

Every Internet browser has the ability to remember previously entered passwords. Typically, the application asks if you want to save, modify or remember the password for the current site. It may facilitate logging in to some pages, but typically if you share the computer with other people you will not want to have your password saved. In Mozilla® Firefox® you have the option to turn off this function completely, or set up websites where the passwords won‘t be filled in automatically. See the instructions below to learn how to set up this function to satisfy your needs.

Setting up the remember password function:

  1. Launch the Mozilla® Firefox® Interner Browser.
  2. Go to “Tools > Options” In the main navigation bar.
  3. Switch to the “Security” tab.
  4. In the “Passwords” section you have three options:
    1. Select the “Remember password for sites” to have automatically filled passwords for all sites.
    2. Select the “Remember password for sites” and click on the “Exeptions” button to add sites where you don’t want to have your passwords filled in by the application.
    3. Uncheck the “Remember passwords for sites” checkbox to turn this function off.
  5. Click on the “OK” button to save and close the options.
