This is related to my previous question.

Is there a way in FireFox to tell it to remember form field values? It used to do so but no longer does in some cases. FireFox version 3.6.9, Windows XP Media Center.

I suspect I have inadvertently turned of this capability, need to know how to turn it back on.

do you have security software or a Cleaner program ,like CCleaner running in the background that automatically Deletes old info?

Also, confirm that you don't have "Clear history when Firefox Closes" checked in the same location that rockiroads gave you.

Also, do you have a website that you can gives us where it's not working for you?

Is it ALL Form fields that are not being saved?

To all,

The security software I have has NOT changed in months. This behavior seems to occur only under certain circumstances. So far it only occurs in php generated html, not pure html.

For example, see www.rkassoc.net/WHA/adimn_login.php.

I just went there (to confirm that I typed it right) & now it works.

Must have triggered something by going to the privacy tab.

sometimes it might be worth starting firefox in safe mode then check the settings, set accordingly. (safe mode is a shortcut on your firefox start menu group)
when u went to the privacy tab, what was the dropdown box option?

yo, strange one then. maybe it just needed some restart or something as it sounds like that is all you did. perhaps some addon update or something.
