You can check whether "Fill Login" and "Fill Password" are enabled (not grayed) in the right-click context menu as alternative.

Make sure you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History).

    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • remove checkmark: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"
