Can i prevent Firefox Developer from suggesting credentials from other websites?

Posted

Using Firefox Developer Edition version 71.0b11 (64 bit).

I store credentials for the site I visit most frequently. For some of those sites I may have multiple logins. Everything good so far.

Currently, when I'm on the login page for any of those site, the suggested list includes credentials "From this web site" and from other more or less similar websites (e.g. subdomains, internal pages, and so on). Can I disable this option and only see suggestions "From this web site"?

hi, you could try the following: enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup. double-click it and change its value to false.

That removed all other subdomains, which is a good step forward.

Still have some mixups (e.g. http auth credentials, internal page logins) but at least they are all related to the same host name.

Thank you very much.
