Firefox wants to remember my password but on the wrong website

Posted

I think I asked this question months ago but never got an answer.

Firefox wants to remember my password for YouTube. But it wants to remember it on the Google.com website.

When I do it that way, it ties together Google and YouTube in ways I don't prefer.

I want to keep Google and YouTube as separate as possible.

Therefore I want to find someway to get Firefox to remember my YouTube password on YouTube.com--not Google.com.

How do I do this?

I ask for Firefox to remember it this way because I notice when I look at my current password list that all of them seem to be remembered on the names of their websites (for example: my ebay password is asked by Firefox to be remembered at ebay.com).

Thanks.

More Information

Don't know how to change the reminder that comes up asking me if I want Firefox to remember my YouTube password on Google.com.
Yes I do want it remembered, but not on Google.com. I want it remembered on YouTube.com.
How do I change that?

YouTube is part of Google and uses a Google account to log in, so you have no other choice to accept if you want to store the password.
