I have account on this web server. Password manager inserts for me my login and
password. Till it is O.K. But I make new account. I type,
then, when web-page does start, - password manager inserts OLD login and
password. I erase it, and type my NEW login and password (my secoud account).
And here is the problem. Password mamager does not remember it. Password manager
does not start with this table (or smal menu) for remembering, unremembering or
cancelig the new passwords. And I have to remember my new password only in my
I can not put this new password in menu: Stored password.

This is working fine for me.  Here are the detailed steps that I took. 
Reporter, let me know if your steps differed from these.

1. Go to
2. Fill in a bogus username (POBOX Login) and password (POBOX HESLO)
3. Press the submit button (Odoslat)
4. Answer yes to password manager's do-you-want-to-save dialog
5. This gets us to a second page ( which has the
   username of step 2 prefilled under "Vase prihlasovacie meno:"  This was done
   by the server it self and not by password manager.
6. Go back to (step 1).  Takes a long time to finish loading
7. When loading finishes, username and password from 2 are prefilled
8. Change to another username and password and press submit
9. Answer yes to password manager's do-you-want-to-save dialog
10. This gets us to second page again with username of step 8 prefilled (by
11. Go back to  Takes a long time to load.
12. When loading finishes I am prompted to select from the two saved logins

So everything is behaving as expected.  The only surprise is in steps 5 and 10
which has the last-used username prefilled.  But, as I mentioned, this was done
by the site and is not under our control.

Closing out as works-for-me.  Reporter, if you are performing these identical
steps and observing something different, then please reopen.  If I misunderstood
you and you are preforming some other steps, then please describe them and reopen.

My steps are diferent. But not my steps, but steps of mozilla.

2. Fill in a bogus username (POBOX Login) and password (POBOX HESLO)
3. Press the submit button (Odoslat)
4. There's nothing doing. No dialog, no password manager, no remembering.
5. ...

Have you turned off the pref for password manager?  That's in

Have you put the site on the list of sites for which passwords are never saved.
 That's in tools->password-manager->passwords-never-saved

Also create a new profile and see if you have the same behavior.

I definitely get the do-you-want-to-save box in step 4.  And so does Terri Preston.

Sorry, I don't know how, but I have put this site on the list of sites for which
passwords are never saved.
I am sorry for your time-rob.
