I'm able to save and update passwords on other sites, but not on Blackboard Learn for my university. They require us to change our pw's every so often and I think I noticed this after Blackboard had done a few updates to their site. It will still load autofill with my old account and password, but not update it. I deleted the stored password and tried to get FF to remember it again on my laptop, but it didn't even ask to save it. I'm guessing there's a new code or script for the log in procedure? Is there a manual way to enter and update stored credentials?

hello, websites can specify that passwords shouldn't be saved (however i don't know if this is the case on the page you're having issues with, since you haven't specified which university this is affecting). as a way to circumvent this you can use an addon like this: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/remember-passwords
Thanks a lot. That add on worked perfectly. It was for logging into University of Louisville's Blackboard page.
Note that you can also remove the autocomplete=off attribute with a bookmarklet, so you can consider this solution as you won't encounter this situation often.
You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save names and passwords or other form data.
- Saved Password Editor: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/saved-password-editor/
I also use the Saved Password Editor add-on. With it installed I can add or edit a password. It by developer, Daniel Dawson. A really great tool.
I hope that helps.
