dup of bug 209423?

I don't think this is a dup of that bug, because this also happens on some pages
that only have one password field.  That bug appears to be specific to those
pages where there is more than one password field...

FYI: Some sites specifically prevent password storage with "autocomplete=off" -
see bug 63961 / bug 145797

A hidden pref for a partial "workaround" exists (in combination with the use of
a master password and encryption) - see bug 124065 comment 11

I don't find any "Autocomplete=off" in the site you originally added however,
so you may be seeing two different issues. Do you have a sample URL with only
one password showing this?

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
