I use the password manager in Firefox. Makes it easier to log in to different sites. I have found a situation that has been overlooked. Multiple sites use a persons e-mail address for identity. Different sites then would all use the one e-mail address for identity. Each site however would have a different password. So we have one "name" but multiple passwords connected to that name. Firefox doesnt realize that the one name has multiple passwords so everytime you login to a site that uses your email address as your identity, it asks if you may want to update your password. You have to refuse everytime because the different sites have a different password. If you update the password, each site will now have the password of the last updated password. Its a issue that needs to be fixed so Firefox recognizes how a Email address=Name can have multiple passwords because different sites are using the same name. It looks like Firefox isnt making the connection that different sites are being visited by the same person so some information will be consistent among different sites visited. Thus not realizing that its correct that the "same" name has a password that is different for this new site.
Is there a workaround? thx.
