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?
