How do I save a password for a site if I am not prompted by Firefox?

Kuphostiwe

I am trying to save a password for a site that I previously chose not to save one for. I have tried: Going into my exceptions list - it's not listed Going into my saved password list - there's no option to manually add a site Checking the forums but there is no solution that has worked

In one forum I followed one solution. I opened a new tab, typed in about:permissions and searched for the site. It was remembered and set to 'Allow' password storage but 0 passwords were stored so I could not use the 'Manage Passwords' button. I even tried the 'Forget About This Site' button to see if navigating back to the page would reactivate the password prompt but it did not.

Little help?

Thanks, Megan

What is the URL of the website where you're having that problem?

The website may be using autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving and filling the name and password.

You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save names and passwords and other form data.

Did you check the exceptions?

I checked the exceptions and it's not on there.

What's a bookmarklet? I have the page bookmarked if that's what you mean. And it prompted me the first time. My username also auto-fills when I start typing as well. Is that the same as autocomplete?

Could you tell me how to remove an autocomplete=off situation so I can check?

Thanks!

Explanation is here:
http://www.bookmarklets.com/

This is the bookmarklet that I use to override autocomplete = off.

The person who put that page is a now a Mozilla developer. And if you notice, it's a secure encrypted HTTPS connection.

Note that there is a version on the mozillaZine KB site of this bookmarklet that shows the result formatted by adding line breaks for readability.

I am having this problem with logging in to my Craigslist account. The autocomplete will enter my user name after typing the first letter, but the password does not, and I'm not prompted allow it to be saved. It used to autocomplete the password, but after I changed the password and deleted the old one in Saved Passwords, it won't save the new one. The bookmarklet doesn't seem to change anything. If this a CL issue, is there a way to circumvent it?

The password field on the Craigslist login page seems to have an autocomplete=off attribute as you can confirm by opening the right-click context menu and use "Inspect Element" to open the built-in Inspector.

Running the bookmarklet should remove this attribute or change it to autocomplete=on
