User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11

My old version of Firefox was fantastic for password control, but I just downloaded the New version of 2.0.0.11, and now I have NO PASSWORDS in the system, and the system does NOT remember the passwords I put in...  What is the problem, I have checked the Tools portion, and the password storage is not checked to erase everything every time I close Firefox, same with saved form information... When I first started using the new version, NOTHING was stored, but that is curing itself with usage, but the password problem continues

I just realized the Firefox software no longer asks me if I want a password saved...  Maybe that would be some clue, as to why no passwords are being stored.
