Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160325004906

Steps to reproduce:

Enter login details on https://ticketportal.itc.rwth-aachen.de/helplineportal54/en-US/Home/Index

or https://video.flixster.com/

At least the support page of https://ticketportal.itc.rwth-aachen.de/helplineportal54/en-US/Home/Index says that this is a problem of Firefox.

I also tried this using Chrome and there a window asking whether I want to store the login details appears.


Actual results:

There is no window asking whether I want to store the login details.


Expected results:

A window asking whether I want to store the login details.

Both of these cases are using bad web development practices as the sites aren't using a <form> submit action and instead are using click and keyup events.

We are going to try use heuristics to work on these sites but ideally the sites should change if they want to work well with all browser features (e.g. form history, Enter key to submit, etc.) and password managers.

If you can contact the sites to fix their markup it would be helpful.

Thanks for the detailed reply. I will contact the sites and tell them about your answer.

In general it would be good to have the password manager working on those sites as well, since unfortunatly some sites use bad practices and some might not be willing to change it.
