I've just changed my password into my Yahoo email account - however the Foxfire website login data remember function box doesn't appear asking if I want to save my new login information.

I've checked my Tools/Options/Security info and all is as should be... And my Tools/Options/Privacy/Remember History box is checked too...

In fact the "remember password data" box just popped up when I registered with this site and added my new login info to my list of saved login ID's and passwords...

Seems to be the "login data remember function" isn't recognizing my Yahoo mail login password change as new info that needs to be re-saved...

hello bthrower, websites can specify if browsers should be able to save username/passwords (through the autocomplete="off" attribute in the login form in the html source code) - this is often the case when a higher level of security is presumably required by those sites.

you can either install an addon or use a bookmarklet to circumvent this restriction.

Usernames and passwords are not saved
