I tried to create a saved password for a site I need to log in to. The Create New Login form says "Make sure this matches the exact address of the website where you log in." I enter the exact address, username, and password and save it. But what shows after it is saved is a truncated form of the address. It lopped off the specific account ID information for my login page. So when I try to go to that site, my login page can't be found. Why can't the full address be saved?

Firefox only uses the origin (protocol and hostname) and not the full path to save a login, so you can't have multiple logins with the same username and a different password for individual paths on a specific domain.
