Password manager should fill in password for read only username
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20091117 Gentoo Firefox/3.5.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20091117 Gentoo Firefox/3.5.4 Firefox refuses to enter passwords if the username field is readOnly. I understand not filling forms if the password field is disabled or readOnly. I think a decent approach would be to check if the username field is readOnly. If it is readOnly, then check to see if it has a pre-filled value. If it is, and it matches a username already in our database, then the appropriate password can be filled in. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit http://www.strudel-hound.com/test.php?save=true 2. Enter any password, and accept Firefox's option to save the password 3. Visit http://www.strudel-hound.com/test.php Actual Results: No password filled in. Expected Results: Password filled in. I set up that test page as just that, a test page. It will print out whatever you type in the password field when you click submit, so don't enter real passwords.
