Too many login suggestions for website

Posted

Since a recent update, I now see WAY too many login suggestions for a website's username field. The issue is that the site has the same subdomain as other sites that I use on my company's network.

For example, if the following sites exist: aaaa.lan.domain.com bbbb.lan.domain.com cccc.lan.domain.com ddd.lan.domain.com etc., then when I browse to the login page for aaaa.lan.domain.com, the login suggestion popup will have ALL of the various logins for ALL of the various subdomains. There will be a huge popup with numerous logins that aren't even usable for the site I'm on. Firefox didn't do this until just recently (like a week ago or so), and before, it would only suggest the logins for the exact site you were on.

Is there a way to force the old behavior?

Well, I started playing around in about:config, typing various search phrases until I came across one called signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup which was defaulted to true.

I set it to false, and it fixed my problem!
