When loading a website that has a password saved, the registration fields will get filled in as well if they're on the same page as the login fields. I've noticed this happening on Twitter and LinkedIn and reproduced it in Chrome as well. I tried doing the same thing with LastPass and that correctly filled in the login credentials and ignored the registration fields. This is most likely a really hard issue to solve but I couldn't find a related bug while searching.

* attached two screenshots for illustration

STR:

- open and login into twitter.com
- selected "Remember Password" on the doorhanger
- logout and go back to twitter.com (the home page)
- you'll notice that the username and password fields are filled in under Registration
