I've read all the solutions to Thunderbird not remembering passwords and all of them require accessing the Options menu. Problem is that it doesn't exist on my installation and there is no "options" under the MENU button either. See screenshot. If I go to MENU/Settings and then click on "Saved Passwords" it shows a blank form, even though I've logged into and attempted to save the password many times. See SavedLogins.jpg.
Here's the history of this installation under Windows 10, 64 bit.
For a decade I was using Eudora then Eudora OSE, which was really a version of Thunderbird.
About 4 years ago, I converted it to Thunderbird. Password saving worked fine but TB couldn't read web pages in messages.
About a year ago, I made a new installation of TB which fixed the web access problem, but password saving didn't work and that's the state I'm in now.
My email provider is Earthlink. The Message Storage local directory for the 3 accounts are at
Something in Thunderbird is pointing at the wrong location for stored passwords, because when I tell TB to save the password, it puts it in WRITE ONLY MEMORY!
