Why can't I save login credentials for this site?

I have a very long random password for https://www.anayaeducacion.es/index_alumnado.php and Firefox doesn't prompt to save it. The site owner has set autocomplete="off" but according to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Security/Securing_your_site/Turning_off_form_autocompletion#The_autocomplete_attribute_and_login_fields that technique shouldn't prevent password manager from working. Also, none of these work:

- Edit and remove the attributes with Inspector, bookmarklets or Firefox addons. - Edit "logins.json" manually to create an entry.

Does the documentation I've linked only apply to other browsers? Is there a way to save this specific password so it gets autocompleted and synched across my devices?

Could be caused by that in this case the form is submitted via JavaScript (AJAX) and Firefox doesn't notice.

You can also try a Form Filling add-on. When the Password Manager can't fill in the data for whatever reason, I found that the form-filler add-on I use is not affected.
