How to turn off message that asks to update password

When logging in asks to update password but don't want to update. This happens every time since the web site encrypts password so firefox thinks it is a new password. Sometime it updates even though I say no, then have to go into preferences and change password back to original since it picks up the encrypted password. Would be nice if given option to not ask again only options are update or not now.
