Firefox 39.0 fails to auto-complete login on a site with autocomplete=off

Following weekend updates to FF 39.0 and Flash, one site does not autocomplete login details. It did before. I have deleted it's cookies and password, changed the password, but the FF 'remember new password' box never appears.

I tried the 'remember password' bookmark: this detected and reset the 2 fields and filled in a new password in FF (but not my username) despite the expected 'remember' box not appearing. Login still fails to autocomplete.

The site HTML contains autocomplete=off for the username and password fields. I understand that this was added by the site IT team in a very recent (simultaneous?) update 'to improve security'. Firefox is (was?) supposed to ignore this and prompt the user to save.

Other sites (eg banks with 'off' set) still autocomplete OK (though I have not changed any passwords on these). Is it FF39, have I missed something, or could the site have another trap set?

Greetings,

I've tried all avenues that normally resolves the issue of unsaved passwords, including cleaning out caches, running in safe mode etc. In fact, I tried two different MacOSX machines, one running running 10.13.8, the other 10.14.1. Nothing works, Firefox does not offer to save credentials. I thought there might be some new HTML trick to disable login saving I'm not aware of but Safari had no problem saving the password. Any suggestions are appreciated.

BUT its entering the wrong email address (which i dont want)

How do i get firefox to enter the RIGHT email upon page load? (note: i'm not talking about manual autofill selection. I want it to be correct, automatically, when the page loads)
