User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b12) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b12

Supposing I create a username, say firefox on some website and log in, click "remember password", the username "firefox" is saved. If I want to log in as FIREFOX or Firefox or FIREfox, it is not possible as the browser assumes its a typo and changes everything to small case. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just put in a upper case letter in your username in any site. 
Say, Firefox instead of firefox ( the password for "firefox" is saved)
2.The browser will automatically change it back to "firefox"
3.
