On central and since the merge this week on aurora too, the password autocompletion function stopped working (at least on Linux).
When you start typing the user name on a page (or just double click that field), then click on the suggested name, the password is not filled in even though it is still properly saved according to the Password Manager.

Afaics, atm there is no way to access the saved passwords other than through manual copy from the password manager.

It sends the messages directly to the web console, which is unhelpful.

I think the toolkit Error Console also gets notified:
>+    Services.console.logMessage(consoleMsg);
But perhaps we should wait for Bug 899983 and/or Bug 947471

You're right, I didn't read the patch well enough.
