How to make Firefox remember login for websites that don't require password (for example: airmilesshops.ca)?

Posted

Airmilesshops.ca only requires collector number to log in, no password. I assume this is why FireFox doesn't show the "save login" prompt. Is there a way to make FireFox remember login for websites like this? Or is there a way to manually add login data?

Thank you for the add-on suggestion! I was doing the "pull out the wallet, dig up the AirMiles card to see the collector number, and fill in the text field" routine for the longest time...

A lot of the form filler add-ons are for filling in random data (for developers). I did find some that can fill user defined data. However, Firefox made it rather scary with the "Access your data for all websites" permission question when I tried to install these add-ons. So I started looking for clipboard management apps for my iMac. After trying out a few free apps, I ended up just making a text clipping of my collector number and do either drag-&-drop or copy-&-paste when it's time to fill the login form.

Thank you all for the help! Only wish FireFox would enable user to manually add login info!

Thank you for trying to help! But the question is not about remembering history. It's about remembering login info. I read through that help page, the only seemingly relevant part is the link to this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/control-whether-firefox-automatically-fills-forms Unfortunately, it still doesn't solve the problem...

Hello xmerzFF,

As that site does not show a field where you're supposed to enter a password, the only thing that might work for you is to look for a form filler add-on :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?platform=windows&q=form%20fill

Either that, or fill in your Collector number every time you visit the site ...... But maybe once you're signed in the site will show the option to keep you signed in ?

The Firefox Password Manager doesn't accept an empty password filed, so even if it would be possible to add the credentials for this website then you would have to specify a (fake) non empty password and Firefox probably would offer to fill it.
