well 1st off i would like to say hi to every one on this site as i am new to this site & this is my 1st post. now this is the problem well this is on be half of my dad, he had a 9 year old pc but ended up getting a brand new pc with windows 7 and what ever and i had put firefox on it for him like he had on his last pc. well now his main sites like his email) & when i am at his house like netflix or gmail or other forum sites for me wont save the password and wont even remember just the user name for any site. i thought it was something to do with the settings also but its not, so how can i fix this problem so we can save user names & passwords?
