I login to the site using saved user login and password with no issue but soon after firefox add extra characters to existing saved password. I don't have any idea why firefox adding extra characters adding to it. Kindly let me know how to resolve this issue. The issue is coming in some more login also but not in all.

It is possible that the website uses JavaScript to modify the password before submitting the form. That makes Firefox ask to update the password.

The submit button has this JavaScript onclick handler attached if I check this in the Inspector.

function onclick(event) {
  javascript: convertTomd5_New();
}

You can create a password block exception to prevent Firefox from asking to update the password.

Thank you so much. As suggested I made an exception and block the site to save password.
