I am a developer for a web application. My clients have this issue that whenever a user creates an account the mozilla password manager promps them to save their new account. The problem is that the username fields is pre-filled with the user phone number.

My question is:

Is there a way (maybe with some attributes), to tell the password manager which field to pick for the username.

The current html form structure is very similar to this

<form>

   <input name="email" type="email" />
   <input name="phone" type="text"/>
   <input name="password" type="password"/>
   <input name="password_confirm" type="password"/>

</form>

So it should be

 <input name="username" type="text"/>

instead of "phone".
