Ghost password: remembered but not in PW manager

I use Password Manager, password protected. I've never come up against this situation before.

Firefox remembers and autofills my username and password for a particular site. I wanted to open the same site on Safari - so I went into my Security preferences to dig out the password. It's not there. It's as though it's a username/password combo the system has never had in its memory -- but it works when I need it to!

I'm very used to getting passwords from the manager, and trying to figure out why this one isn't recoverable with the usual steps.

How is this happening? And is there another way to recover that password short of resetting it?

Hey guys, I am having quite a problem. I set up my account and didn't get the confirmation email. I tried having it resent and I tried doing a password reset. I didn't get either of those emails either. I added the domain to my safe mailers list and have checked in my junk mail folder and it is still not there. It is a hotmail account if that is relevant. Please help me out...

I'm a web designer and I'm having an issue were a user who is already logged in arrives on a page which allows them to update information on their account as well as update their password with a set of Current password, New password, re-enter password fields. I'm seeing that in firefox for users with password manager information saved, the first password field filled is being auto-completed by Firefox password manager and the entry field above the password reset section is populated by the username, despite the fact this field is not for a username.

I will note that this issue only occurs when the input field directly above the password field is intentionally blank (value="").

Is there any thing I can do without altering the layout of the page so that Firefox password manager will not incorrectly insert data into this field?

Firefox Password Update question box blocks my entering of new password to Google

Firefox Password Update box is preventing me from logging into applications and programs, when I need to enter a NEW password, different from the one saved on Firefox already. The Firefox Password popup immediately stops me from entering the program. After I click on "update now" or "not now," Firefox box closes. BUT, the program password I entered (e.g. for Google, Twitter, etc) always defaults BACK to previous one saved on Firefox saved password, so it won't let me update to the NEW password. How can I stop it from reverting back to the OLD saved password, which is now invalid?
