User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1

I cannot login to certain sites when using a long/complex password.
Long/complex password = randomly generated 26 char passwords eg. "jc/_0qZf$DBUr}c~r~J61hhVFN"

Sites I have been having problems are private torrent sites eg. TorrentBytes

I can login perfectly with Firefox 2, but not with Firefox 3.
When I logged in with FF2 and changed the password to a 6 char password, I was able to login with FF3 also.

Using Vista x64, have the same problem on 2 different computers (both very recently installed)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
* Using 26 char password *
1. Login with FF3 -> "Username or password incorrect"
2. Login with FF2 -> works
3. Change password to 6 char password
4. Login with both FF2 and FF3 -> works
