Description

The "Remember passwords" option in TorBrowser is greyed out.

In past versions of the TorBrowserBundle there was a setting in TorButton, but in v3.5 it's no longer there. How can I store passwords in TorBrowser?

Its only about storing unimportant passwords. No one can remember a different password for each forum. Copy and paste all time from a while is less safe then storing in TorBrowser. How allow storing passwords in TorBrowser? Any workaround? Can you fix this please?

I wonder how Firefox does that in PBM, maybe storing passwords is declared as not leaking things to disk. Either way, might be worth thinking about.

I feel this is a bad idea and I never use the browser ability to store passwords.

I use KeepassXC and I have installed it to many non-technical friends, is easy to use and backup.

It also generates nice passwords.

I 100% agree here. IMHO browsers should not be in the business of saving user passwords. KeepassXC is also cross platform and saves your passwords to an easily user-managed file.
