In a login form, while filling your username, only the entries that matches the
case of your partially typed username appears. All entries matching the first
letter should appear, regardless of case. Password manager is case sensitive.
This only occurs with usernames, not normal forms (Autocomplete).

2. Fill in "Mozilla" for username and "Rules" for password
3. Click Submit
4. Ignore error, click Back.
5. Type in "m" for username.

Actual Results:  
"Mozilla" is not a returned entry

"Mozilla" should be returned

Patch: make username autocomplete list include case-insensitive matches

This patch only affects the autocomplete suggestions.  It does not make the
"fill in the password after the user fills in the username" behavior extend to
case-insensitive matches and it does not prevent you from storing different
passwords for usernames "foo" and "FOO".
