We do this if the site specifies autocomplete=off (see bug 362576), or if you have multiple saved passwords for the site. Is that what's happening here?

nope. seems to happen every page with a password stored. never happened befor. on myspace the details only seem to show once the password box is entered. not the username
Side effect of bug 471906?

james: please enable debugging per and paste a log from when you reproduce the problem with debugging.

Ok, reopen if you find more info an can reproduce on a build that includes the fix for bug 471906.
