Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b2pre) Gecko/2007112003 Minefield/3.0b2pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b2pre) Gecko/2007112003 Minefield/3.0b2pre

I think better button names would make easier to users what is happening.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Log in to any Web site who is verified (where Firefox can save the password).
Actual Results:  
Message:
Do you want Minefield to remember this password?

Buttons
Remember
Never for This Site


Expected Results:  
Message:
What do you want Minefield to do with this site password?

Buttons:
Remember password
Don't remember password

Sorry, title should have been: Make Firefox question about entered password clear.
I think the current scheme is pretty clear and the suggested change is too verbose for buttons.  If it is just a matter of making things clearer to understand, I think simple "yes" and "no" buttons would suffice.  Just answer the question asked in plain english.

Again, I will let someone else make this call.

Yes/No/Cancel buttons are way too generic; giving more information inside the buttons lets the user work without reading what Firefox has to say, but understaing what it will do.
I don't think this is a very useful change. It just makes the buttons more verbose, and you got rid of the "never for this site" capability.

Semi-related: bug 395038, regarding adding a "not now" button.

O didn't get rid of it:

"Never for This Site" would be "Don't remember password", which says what Firefox will do even if the used does not read the information message.
