In the past, since I have had Firefox once I have set up my passwords all I had to do was go to the website and I would be automaticly be loged on.  For the last couple of weeks when I go to a site I have to type in the 1st letter of my user name or e-mail address and then the user name and password will come up.  I then have to press enter.  Please help.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just log on

Expected Results:  
To work the way it use to.  When I go to a website I expect my password mgr to auto log me on.

Do you have multiple usernames assigned to that site, to test this, simply hit the down arrow key when the caret is in the textbox, if you see two names that's the reason it doesn't autofill. Also, please check signon.autofillForms in about:config and make sure it's set to true.
