I think I have figured out why. I have multiple saved passwords for hotmail.com There is more than one server for passport log in Example: lc1.law5.hotmail.passport.com lc2.law13.hotmail.passport.com lc3.law13.hotmail.passport.com So I must tell the Password Manager to remember my log in for all three servers manually (there are probably more than three but bare with me), even though the end user only sees hotmail.com; this makes it appear as if Mozilla is forgetting the passwords. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to hotmail.com 2.Tell it to remember the passport log in 3.Log in to the account 4.Log out 5.Go to hotmail.com 6.It may (or may not) ask for your password again, even though it was already saved. See explaination as to why under "Details" Actual Results: Does not remember password consistently. Expected Results: Obvious.
Yes, that's true. And by design. If I did otherwise you might have the case where passwords from one host were being used by a different one resulting in password stealing. So this is the fail safe approach.

Isn't there a way mozilla could check to see the end URL (see that it ends in ".hotmail.passport.com")? The only reason is it's annoying, because I check hotmail on three computers, and...me and my "two friends"... have a total of three hotmail accounts. Meaning 3x3=9 and I always find myself typing in passwords (between that and Yahoo).
Err sorry... I mean 3 hotmail x 3 servers x 3 computers = 27 times typing passwords.
isn't this a dupe of bug 92966 ?
