It's in the Firefox Options. On the Security tab, there's a checkbox for "Remember logins for sites".

I am deploying firefox to a lot of machines and I have to disable the saved login button
The one solution that i see is to use the lockPref and save it in all.js (correct me if im wrong). Then will deploy it to all of my users.

But problem is, when i type about:config at the browser url, i cant seem to find the configuration settings to disable the saved login button.

Currently I am following this guide http://ilias.ca/blog/2005/03/locking-mo ... -settings/

Anyone knows what is the configuration name to disable the saved login button or set the use a master password checkbox that i can use?

See Configuration:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Fir ... deployment

mozilla.cfg:
Code: Select all
//
lockPref("signon.rememberSignons", false);


The mozilla.cfg file needs to be in the main Firefox program folder.

A local-settings.js file needs to be placed in the "defaults/pref" folder in the Firefox program folder to specify using mozilla.cfg.
This folder you stores channel-prefs.js that sets the update channel.
Code: Select all
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);


The mozilla.cfg file is executed as a JavaScript file with full chrome privileges.
Any error in this file will throw an exception and abort the execution.
