This is a tracking bug for work needed to complete the Password Management Improvements. To implment this, we must ... This has several parts so I'll address each one separately. 1) Prompt for master password each time you hit a page where you saved a password 2) Make Master Password dialog visually distinct from other password entry 3) Improve dialog wording

Item #1 has been done Item #2 is in the PSM area I don't know what you have in mind by item #1, but I suspect it too has to do with the PSM dialogs. Reassigning to PSM

Is it possible to add a feature so that the password manager would work with chat boards such as MozillaZine? At present the only solution is to set the password manaager to "Never for this site" for MozillaZine. If the password manager had the option to ignore certian fields, such as "Post Title" which changes everytime a new post is made, or a pop-up option asking which firld the users wants the password manager to index with, so it could be remembered with the user name instead of the title of the post. At present if the password Manager is used at sites such as MozillaZine the user ends up with multiple passwords all all indexed with the post's title and Mozilla fails to recognize that the password is already stored for this site. New userers may become so fustrated by having the password manager function as it does at MozzilaZione (and other similar chat boards) that they dump Mozilla/NS 6 for another browser.
I totally agree with Paul Bergsagel.
when do we believe PSM will be landing?
I don't know how strongly you care about this. I think it's very low priority. If it's very important then we need a more detailled spec than just "different".
Priority: P2 → P3
This bug no longer has anything to do with password manager but rather with PSM. Updating summary to reflect that.

Paul, Eugene, please file a separate bug. You seem to propose an enhancement for password manager, but I'm not I understand. Please file a bug under Browser/Password manager. Re this bug: As it was said, 1) has already been fixed. Re 2), there is a separate bug already, see bug 101611. Re 3), I guess you also mean improved wording for the password dialog. Could you please post suggestions for improved wording in bug 101611? Thanks. Marking this bug as invalid.
