Right now, we either lock OfferToSaveLogins too true or false.

We've had requests to set the default so it can be set to false and a user can choose to set it to true.

I'm thinking:

OfferToSaveLoginsDefault

Priority: -- → P3

This doesn't seem that necessary given that a user must explicitly save each login…

They simply want to flip the default but still allow a user to choose to turn it on.

So allow a way to change the default for signon.rememberSignons from true to false.

Right now in policy, the only options are to lock it on or lock it off.

Are we OK with landing this patch on ESR with a new English-only string? Flod confirms that users in other locales will just fall back to the English string.

OK with me. Sys admins can decide to opt into this behavior if the language restrictions suit them.
