And please remember not to use those same HTTP site logins on any sites where you care about your identity or the data you submit.

The value of the security.insecure_password.ui.enabled preference determines whether or not Firefox warns you about non-secure login pages.

  • enable the feature and be warned about non-secure login pages by setting this pref to true
  • disable the feature to be warned about non-secure login pages by setting this pref to false
  • security.insecure_password.ui.enabled = false

You can disable the warning when you type in a name/password field by setting this pref to false.

  • security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled = false

There is signon.autofillForms.http for HTTP sites as an addition to the general signon.autofillForms pref to disable or enable filling a form automatically.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.

  • signon.autofillForms.http = true

Works for me. I know it was mentioned in post above but it wasn't noticeable.
