I have multiple wordpress installations in my site. Main site is wordpress, then there is a news section and blog that also use WP.

For such a long time, I thought FF will solve this issue but it is still there in the latest FF.

The problem is that: for all WP installed within my one site, username is the same. Now, FF cannot seem to remember the password for all WP based sections in my site.

Like, homepage is:

Lets say FF have saved the username and Pass for admin panel for this site.

But then for this section:

When I enter login info, FF does ask to save the info: if I select Yes, then the password for this section will over write the password that FF saved for the main site.

hence, only one password is saved for multiple sections of WP.

Can you solve this issue? Or I am doing something wrong?

I am currently using Firefox 3.6.12 and I am still having this issue:

FF does not remember all the passwords if you have multiple installations of Wordpress in one website.

I will now check in Firefox 3.6.13

I have multiple Wordpress installations in one domain: now FF does only remember password for One installation. All installations uses the same username that is ADMIN.

All Wordpress installations are in one Main Domain: No subdomains.

Main domain is using Wordpress here:

Now another Wordpress installation is here:

Just like this, there are other installations too.

In researching this I found you can store multiple accounts on the same domain as long as they use a different username. Only 1 combination of site/username is allowed. If you put the blogs on sub-domains the issue would go away.

So...2 choices currently: use different username or move to sub-domains.

Duping to bug 263387 - which is a WONTFIX

Bug 436275 is also similar (and has a patch) - but also was a WONTFIX
