Hi, Just an idea here...
Check this KB article & refer to the sections on "Password Manager settings" & "Passwords cleared with Clear Recent History."
> ... remembered

May be that simple?

Oh...You're not in Private Browsing mode are you?

You are using Firefox 78 with its own profile since you posted with a Waterfox version ?

You can try to rename or remove logins.json and key4.db and when present key3.db in the profile folder in case there is a problem. ... -user-data
