Have at least 2 logins saved for Twitter in browser.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to Twitter with one of the saved accounts.
2. Go to Twitter->Settings->Password screen.
3. Enter the current password and the new one.
4. Click on "Save changes" button.
5. Select from `Confirm Password Change` window the username for which the password has been changed.
6. Click on "OK" button.
7. Open a new tab and go to about:preferences#security, click on "Saved Logins..." button.
8. Observe the username for which the password has been changed.

Expected results:
The username is displayed and only the password is updated.

Actual results:
The username is blank.

This issue is reproducible also on Windows 10, Mac OS X 10.11.

Tim, can you make the same change as attachment 8740261 [details] [diff] [review] but for mobile?

Is this bug still repro on Fennec? I am seeing `this._updateLogin(selectedLogin, aNewLogin.password);` here; `_updateLogin()` does not take `aNewLogin` as a whole as the argument.

Good point, I guess bug 1016051 didn't get fixed for Android so this bug isn't present. Sorry about that. We can file a separate bug to port bug 1016051 to Android.
