How do I save site login userids but not save the passwords

On my linux laptop I have a lot of saved userids in Firefox that do not have the password saved - which is exactly what I want for some sites (like bank sites and credit card sites) that I want it easy for me to log into but impossible for anybody else. On my Windows desktop now, however (apparently I inadvertently deleted my saved logins), I can't seem to figure out how to duplicate this functionality again, i.e., save the userids but not the passwords. Firefox seems to want to save both, or neither. How do I get my desktop to do exactly what my laptop is doing, save the userid but not the password? Thanks.

It is my understanding that the userid should be saved as part of the form, but it is not being saved even though browser.formfill.enable is set to true. If firefox would just save the userid as part of the form, that is all I would need (in fact, exactly what I would need). Any idea why this userid is not being saved as part of the form?

I use Windows FireFox but beyond saving the login on the Browser password manager that is the only way to save site login. Otherwise you need something like Keepass password manager to save actual site url and login.
