For instance: 1) PayPal’s Login page (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_login-run) remembers my email address. When I revisit the page, my password is autofilled by the Mozilla Suite but not by FireFox. 2) RBC Bank's Login page (https://www1.royalbank.com/cgi-bin/rbaccess/rbunxcgi?F6=1&F7=IB&F21=IB&F22=IB&REQUEST=ClientSignin&LANGUAGE=ENGLISH) prepopulates the client card field with 4519 since all RBC cards begin with those numbers. When I revisit the page, my full card number and my password are autofilled by the Mozilla Suite but not by FireFox. This is a problem on many sites. I can easily offer a dozen more examples on request. This is the single most painful reminder for me that I am not using the suite. Instead of just clicking the sign-in/log-in button and going on my merry way as I do with the suite, I must focus the username field, release the mouse and delete a character from the end of whatever is in the username field, press the down-arrow to activate the drop-down list, select the username, grab the mouse again and click the sign-in/log-in button. It's like a dripping faucet - a minor irritation that gets more and more annoying with each repeated instance. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
#1 is bug 229762.
Case 2 above is a situation where the prepopulated value is a leading-substring of the username. Bug 229762 and case 1 can be considered a subcase of case 2 - meaning the leading-substring is the *complete* username. Whether either of these bugs is a dupe of the other, I leave to the powers that be to determine.
The fix for Bug 229762 seems to address case 1 and 2. Bravo! Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040730 Firefox/0.9.1+
