But your suggestion referring to autofill in prefs was a SUCCESS!!! Although the same Profiles folder was copied to KM I and KM II, in KM II one setting was changed without my influence (obscure to me, but...). The correct setting is:
signon.autofillForms : true
With this setting my problem was solved!
Glad to hear! Yes there should be a GUI, still missing. As for so many things (wish at least the most important permissions.default.xxx would show up in about:config)
The 'obscure' settings change is simply because the default
setting seems to have changed between Gecko38 and 52/59. It probably was 'true' in older version, as you need it, so it wasn't ocntained in your prefs.js Because in user profiles are no default settings stored, only those which are different.
Visible with bold font (from user=prefs.js) or thin font (from default files) in about:config.
Therefore prefs.js is almost empty in new profiles yet.
When you manually define a setting with notepad in prefs.js, KM will read it at startup, but then automatically delete it from prefs.js again if the setting is identic to default.
To avoid this you can add important prefs to user.js instead.
This is always read and the values restored at startup by KM, but not changed. It's also possible to write comments inside this one.
