Hi All

Weird issue happened a few weeks back. On a couple of websites I simply store my password in firefox as not really worried about security being the site it is.

Anyways I noticed a few weeks ago the password storage stopped working on the main log in page for the website. The ID list is out of order compared to the order it use to list my ID's in and when I select an ID it leaves the password field blank where as before it would insert the password like normal.

I notice it is ONLY on this main log in page cause if I put my ID in and leave password field blank it takes me to a wrong log in details page and on this page the log in works just as it should ID's in proper order and password is inserted as it should be.

This only happens on this one page and no where else.

Is this most likely a website specific issue where this is an issue on their website or is it a Firefox issue where it has messed up for this one website? If so is there a way to fix this without having to go back and redo all my passwords for this site as I have a few accounts due to the nature of the website.

Thanks

Try to remove those stored passwords and let Firefox save them once again. It is possible that some (hidden) parameters have changed.

Use these steps to remove saved (form) data from a drop-down list:

  1. click the (empty) input field on the web page to open the drop-down list
  2. highlight an entry in the drop-down list with the mouse or cursor Down key
    do not click the mouse or press the Enter key
  3. press the Delete key (on Mac: Shift+Delete) to delete the highlighted entry

If you look at the source, does the form have a feature that says not autofill?

Well scanning the source no mention of AUTOFILL comes up but when I scanned the source for the word not and worked my way through the code I did see the below which seems somewhat related to log in purposes. Not being on this level of web programming am not sure if this would disable it or not, but being this seems to relate to the remember me box I think that this is just auto unchecking the box by default where as the user can override it and check the box I would assume.


#auth form[name="loginForm"].content-style3 .checkbox-visible, #auth form[name="loginForm"].content-style3 .remember-me-text:not(.redesign3), #auth form[name="loginForm"].content-style3 .login:not(redesign3), #auth form[name="loginForm"].content-style3 .error-bubble-login {display: none; }

Sorry first time I posted code in here didn't expect the side scroll bar due to the length of the code. You can copy and paste it to see whole code easier sorry!

I do not think that you can overwrite that, but it is blocking remembering the form. Sorry about that.

You might be able to do it with an add on, however it might require some trial and error:

Seems like that might work will have to test it further but the account I did test it on seemed to work.

Will leave this open until I get chance to test the others.

Hi Co-rel

That resolved it finally had time to change it the other day and have tested it the last couple and all seems fine on this page again so perhaps something just got screwed up and resaving them resolved the issue.

Thanks for the suggestion as was so annoying to have to log in twice due to the first page being messed up!!
