Description

Just as other security prompts have options to never ask again, the password
save prompt should have more than just "Never for this site."  There should be a
checkbox to always perform the action for all sites, that is, always save or
don't save (I'm particularly interested in the last one without having to go
into preferences to turn it off).  Casual users that always select the same
answer for all sites won't even know where to go to set this and it will just
become an annoyance to them.

I'm thinking that this is a misfeature. A global setting like you suggest for
that belongs in preferences. Also, this is a safety feature. If I sit down at
someone's computer where they are running a mozilla client, I want to know that
it won't go off storing passwords at random. As for disabling, I guess that
could be done, but unchecking "remember passwords" doesn't seem like something
too hard to do. Anyway  I'd say that this should be either severity enhancement
or wontfix

That is why I said it should be a checkbox.  Turning saving OFF, as I said is my
bigger concern, but we may as well offer all possibilities.  Anyway, we store
cookies without asking each time by default, which stores passwords or their
derivatives a lot of the time.  Remember, this is supposed to be convenient...
IE is convenient, it doesn't ask you for each site, it only has a global
setting.  Mozilla offering both choices just makes it more compelling.

MASS-CHANGE:
This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.
