Build ID: 20140716183446

Steps to reproduce:

I was logging into my account at ATT.COM. 

Actual results:

Firefox v31 built in Password Manager did not fill in user or password information.

Expected results:

P.M. should have filled in the information. I checked. P.M. has the information, but will not
copy to the web page. I deleted the data, entered the info on the page, P.M. saved the
data, but still not copy to login page. All settings for page look correct.

NOTE: Add-on; AutoFill works on same page without any problem.

Hello Fred, 

Could you follow the instructions at to turn on logging information and also look at the list of common reasons why passwords aren't autofilled.

Could you also provide a direct link to the login page on as sometimes there are multiple login pages on a website and some work while others don't.

Private message received from Col-el;

The web page is using autocomplete=off on the input fields of the login form.
You can see that if you right-click the name field and use Inspect Element to open the
built-in Inspector. Current Firefox versions will offer remember the name and password,
but likely still respect autocomplete=off and not autofill the name and password automatically.

I had thought autocomplete=off was ignored, but Col-el says autocomplete=off
is ignored only when storing the password, not filling it in.

That's correct. Thanks for following-up.
