I guess this is probably the place to put this: In Phoenix 0.5 (and possibly earlier versions), in the JS Console, you can still do Tools -> Password manager. Of course there is also a menu option for the JS Console on the JS Console.

One of the great things about password manager is that for situations in which you only have one username/pass for a given site (i.e. most cases) the info is just prefilled automatically when the page loads, meaning you don't need to click-down-arrow-enter then grab the mouse again to click "Login". Logging in becomes a single mouse action rather than a series of actions. That said, my belief is that the autocomplete system used by satchel is the best way to show and select between multiple logins for a given page (rather than the current dialog).
I concur with Ben, if there are several possibilities, I think that the focus should be on the identity form, the autocomplete widget open. Selecting an identity should prefill the password on the fly. However, there would be a benefit only in the edge case of two or more identities -> untargetting

We already have the new password manager. With one identity, it prefills forms; with two or more, it uses autocomplete. -> fixed? Or does this bug ask for something else?
Adding [pwd-mngr] to summary of Password Manager bugs to facilitate querying. Sorry for the bugspam.
Summary: Satchel should replace password manager → [pwd-mngr] Satchel should replace password manager
Is there a spec for this somewhere, that shows why all of these myriad bugs have been duped to this one, which has a blank description, or is this simply an idea in some developers head, with no timeframe for implementation?
I'm not sure what Blake meant by this either, but we've replaced wallet with a new satchel-based password manager, so I'd consider this done. Please file separate bugs for any remaining issues.

That was done before 0.7 already -> setting target milestone to that.
Summary: [pwd-mngr] Satchel should replace password manager → Satchel should replace password manager

Target Milestone and Priority should be changed by the bug owner only.
Well the fact is that satchel *DID* replace password manager as of FB0.7, so it's no longer a "target" but a "fait accompli". Verified fixed.

Sorry, this _may_ be unrelated: The case where the user might not remember the first letter of the UN is *not discoverable*. I didn't know about "down-arrow-to-reveal-all-UN/PW's" until I read this bug (no "normal" user will find/read this bug). It may be better to bring up a dialog whenever a site is visited that requires UN/PW _and_ FB has _several_ UN/PW's for that site.
