workaround, post here.

it may not be a bug...there are many sites that intentionally will not
cause the browser to auto-fill the login credentials..

Also check that the website is not being blocked firefox's password
exception list:

Edit -> Preferences -> Security -> Exceptions (in the password section)

Not all username and password forms are detected. Firefox uses a
heuristic to detect these, but if the site calls it something weird,
like for example, membership id and PIN, then the heuristic fails. Also
some sites use Javascript popups for the form, those are sometimes not
detected.

For this website, it's not a good idea to have it fill in the passwords
for security reasons, now that I think about it. Thanks for the info.

You can blacklist particular sites from autofill.

firefox saved passwords help :(
Hi all! I hope that you can help me or at least let me know who should I contact for help, I use Mac OSX, and Firefox... About a month ago, I saved a username and password for a website in Firefox/Preferences/Security/Saved passwords... But then after a week I deleted it After a month I realized that I actually need those info, but there is no way to recover them from the website...so now I was thinking to see if somehow Mozilla still has them somewhere in memory on my computer...I tried to find in ApplicationData/Firefox/Profile...but there are just bunch of strange files...

HELP! PLEASE
This is really weird. Password Manager (PM) will not store passwords for more than a day or so, and in some instances for much less time. It won't keep the password from my email server, and it won't keep the passwords for sites I visit. For instance, this site: http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/6/ubb.x?a=frm&s=400102&f=452106891 It will not keep the password and when it does, this is what's displayed in the list: site: https://secure.ubi.com Username: Enter Text Here (encrypted) Attempting to login to the site, and a little box pops up with "Enter T...
