User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

I was wondering if there was any way where someone could integrate a method of
allowing/blocking the saving of form information in Firefox/Mozilla in general
on some sites. The issue is that I would rather not like some information on
some forms (credit card, social security number, etc) to be retrievable by an
unauthorized user/script and I see that not having that sort of information down
is somewhat of a security issue in terms of identity theft, etc.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to website and enter in sensitive info.
2. Leave page.
3. Come back and info's still there.



Expected Results:  
Have a smarter means of limiting how and what information is saved by the forms
manager.
You can always answer "No" or "never for this website" when it asks you to save
username/password...
But this is specifically "Don't save my credit card number", type of thing. That
as it stands cannot be controlled from within Firefox and Mozilla; all that's
available is save and don't save info.

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.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Yep, this is a problem that I've wondered about for a while now.  I guess I'm surprised it hasn't been addressed before now.

Consider this my vote for a new feature...

Thanks.
If the component that controls form input is XForm, I'd be glad to work on a fix for this feature. My C++ skills have improved quite a bit since I last posted this feature request.

Thanks,
