While the password manager works fine in the browser, with my (mensa, password
protected) news account it does not.
When I filled in the two seperate (why by the way?) popup forms (1st username
2nd password) and with each checked the box 'remember username/password' (or so,
doesn't pop up at the moment) it will ask me for username and then password
again at quite a random time. It once asked me again five seconds later as I
wanted to read the next unread news item, sometimes it remembers for hours.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check for new messages
2. Type in user and password and tell him to remember
3. Read some more
4. Read some more
5. There you are: It asks again

Actual Results:  
1. Password manager asks for username
2. Password manager asks for password

Expected Results:  
Remember username and password and not ask again.
