This issue has been occured for a while, I don't remember at which point it started but basically firefox will ask to save usernames and and passwords but when I got back to certain sites, only the password is automatically filled out. If I type in the username it doesn't offer to auto complete. I have tried the secure logon addon but that doesn't help (when I click the button it will only fill out the password but not the user).

I've double checked the saved logins and it is saving the user and password, its just not auto completing the username.

Try the Saved Password Editor extension.

It is possible that Firefox isn't detecting the user name field correctly and in that case you might have to use the Inspector to get the field name.

Thanks after using that extension I noticed the login field name was dummy, and when I checked the website code it specifically said it was designed to trick firefox. With that said, even though it detects the proper username field it still doesn't auto populate it.

Did you try to change the field(s) to make them point to the fields that are actually used to store the user name and password?

The SPE extension allows to edit all those fields. The only requirement is that the field has a name attribute.

Yeah, I replaced dummy in the username field with login[username] as seen in the source, but it still isn't filling in the username.

It's not a huge deal for me as I only notice this on a couple of sites. But it really annoys my mom, and I'd rather not keep hearing about it if you know what I mean haha.

The screenshot still shows dummy as the user name as would be expected because Firefox selects by default the input text field directly before the password field as the user name field.

What happens if you change the dummy by login[username]?

You can try to temporarily delete the fake input field via the right-click context menu to see if that has effect.
