If you login to a website they mostly ask for your username + password, but when both are password fields and firefox asks you if he can remember the passwords firefox will only save the last password field. But firefox will fill in your password in the first password field thus your username. Which is very annoying.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login form, where your username and password are both password fields
2. fill them in and let firefox remember your password
3. log out, get back to the login form
4. your password will be filled in as your username and your password field will be blank
Actual Results:  
your password will be filled in as your username and your password field will be blank

Expected Results:  
Username and password filled in correctly, thus 2 password fields saved under one login form
2 password fields ?
That is an edge case that will probably not been fixed

We're no going to support saving multiple "passwords", where one is really the username.
