Idk why but sometimes firefox just doesn't prompt to generate secure password, I even have to download some extensions to generate secure password (Secure Password Generator) meaning more secure issues.

My guess is that you guys probably hardcoded something like {if "type: password" then prompt}, but it's still partly fault at developers too for bringing these huge chunks of javascript.

In screenshot there's element examaple in which i input password but no prompt whatsoever.

I guess the solution for me is to never use this feature again as it'll never work properly.

As you can see in the screenshot, this input field has a type="text" attribute and not type="password". Firefox needs a type="password" field to detect this as a login form although current releases can handle a multi page login form (i.e. one page with the username and a second page with the password field; about:config => signon.usernameOnlyForm.enabled).

I posted a bookmarklet in this thread that you can place on the Bookmarks Toolbar that can fix (toggle) the type of an input field or possible add an extra (hidden) password filed to trigger a save login dialog.

You need to set focus to the username or password field and then click the bookmarklet to invoke the JavaScript. If this doesn't work then may post a link, so I can check out this form.
