Why won't Password Vault won't save full URL?

Posted

If I could edit the URL in the password manager this wouldn't be an issue, but alas ...

I have two logins for my website, both on Wordpress. Let's call the site bookreading.com

https://bookreading.com/wp/wp-admin/ https://bookreading.com/sfadmin/dashboard

They have the same username but different passwords.

The problem is that the Firefox password manager only saves "https://bookreading.com" ... so every time I log in, I am asked if I want to update the password.

I am guessing that because I have longer URLs than what is in the PW manager, it is not showing me the "key" so that I can pick which login I want.

I have also tried going back to default theme and disabling all add-ons. No change.

Help getting this resolved would be appreciated. Thank you.

You can create a password block exception to prevent Firefox from asking to update the password. Firefox only stores the domain and not the complete URL. You can try to add an extra character to the user name to make Firefox store the other entry in the Password Manager. Then you would only have to remove this extra character.
