If you are using "Private Browsing" (Ctrl+Shift+P), passwords and cookies will not be remembered.  You have have to have "Private Browsing" turned off to remember these things.

Dave – Private browsing is nowhere to be found on the site.  There are
forums on the net discussing this issue with comments like “what happened
to private browsing” ;however, on The Firefox help web site, there is a
plug-in that removes  private browsing.  After I installed it, I now get a
message that asks if I want to remember password.
Thanks jcimarron.  I was one step ahead of you, but your suggestions were
good..

Thanks for the points.  I'm not sure what you mean by "Private browsing is nowhere to be found on the site."  You start it on the File menu under "New Private Window Ctrl+Shift+P".  I assume you close it in the same place because I never use it.

I’m using Firefox 25.0.1.  Ctrl+Shift+P does nothing.  There is nothing under File
That says New Private Window, although there is a “New window ctrl+N” indicated.
If I use that, another window just like the first one pops up.  If I go to the Firefox home
Page, there is a tab on the bottom that says Add-ons.  There, I now find a tab for “Disable
Private browsing  plus 1.9”. I don’t recall it being there before I downloaded it from the
Mozilla help site.

That must have done it.  I have Firefox 25.0.1 and it's still there on my copies.
