I try to enter a new site & password with a long address. Manager truncates it to a simple dot com which brings up a "403 - Forbidden: Access is denied." error message. I have a bookmark that takes me to the correct login page, but Manager doesn't recognize it and won't suggest a login for it. For example: this page url is "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form" PassManager would truncate this to "https://support.mozilla.org" If I try to submit a new password, in the manager, it tells me there is already a site EVEN IF I HAVE DELETED THAT FAULTY SITE. This is a real problem and it happens on more than one site which makes the manager a limited feature. Unfortunately that makes my preference in using a Mozilla product (rather than Roboform etc) a distinct liability. Please give this some thought, thank you.

I would also like to see the manager remember the answers to secondary security questions on some websites login pages, if that were possible.

Firefox passmanager is a basic program that AutoFills and AutoSave logins then saves Payment and Address. What your asking is what a 3rd party software would do for security questions.

Does Firefox offer to store this login ?

It is possible that the login form comes from another domain (embedded frame), you can check this by right-clicking in the username field and look for "This Frame".

The Firefox Password Manager only stores the origin (protocol and hostname) and not the full path, so in case you have more than one login with the same username but different passwords then Firefox won't be able to store and auto-fill this login. You can possibly add an extra character to the username and remove this before you submit the login form, and create a login block exception to avoid Firefox asking to save/update this login.
