Firefox Saving Web Passwords

As a system administrator and PC hobbyist, I do quite a lot of installing and reinstalling of different OSes and programs, one of those being Mozilla’s Firefox.

The browser is absolutely great, fast, efficient, secure, etc., but one of the major annoyances that bugs me, is that Firefox always insists – by default, in saving the passwords entered when logging on to websites or web services.

All it takes is a few clicks to remove this option (Edit > Preferences > Security tab > remove checkmark from Remember passwords for sites), but it can be quite annoying when having to do this on a regular basis.

I wish this was an option presented as part of the installation, so that users who do not like saving web passwords can turn this off from the start.
