Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090423 Firefox/3.5b4 GTB5

When logged in to a site with username/password authentication,with firefox option set to remember password.The next time when you login to that site, the password field will be filled with black dots and user name field is empty. When the username is typed and submitted the black dots vanished and says empty password. You have to type in the password again to work...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in to any site having a username/password authentication
2.When logged in firefox will ask if you want to remember password for that site- answer YES
3.Close the tab and Restart firefox (Optional it seems) and try logging in again
Actual Results:  
The password field is filled with black dots and username field is empty!!. When the username is typed and submitted the black dots vanished and says empty password. You have to type in the password again to work...

Expected Results:  
Both username and password field should be seen as filled with the values given to remember.

Works for me. Do you have more than one account for irctc.co.in? If yes then you need to select a name before the password manager will select a password.

I am not sure if I have another account ..Even in that case once I type in the username it should automatically select the correct password,right? I am required to re-enter the password even when I asked firefox to remember it!!!
