I have a bookmark to a website that saved my username and password. I changed that password but was not asked to update it. For all other sites for which I changed my password Firfox did ask if I wanted to update the password. So, I deleted the username and password entry for this website. However, it still remembers the username but will not ask if I want to save the password. Why the change? Why can't I get it to save my new password?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

This website may be using autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving form data like name and password.

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

Note that Firefox won't auto-fill saved form data automatically when autocomplete=off is used, so you need to double-click the empty name field to get a drop-down list.
