Firefox won't remember the password on


(Toolkit :: Password Manager, defect)

Windows 7
Not set





(Reporter: kevinbodor, Unassigned)



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

It used to work before, but recently, I don't know why, after updating to the latest Firefox 4 (and after all my bookmarks and passwords were deleted - my own fault -), when I went to and typed in my account and password. At first, I couldn't see the box where it should have said Remember Password, and after it finally showed, it wouldn't work. I opened the login window and nothing was completed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go on
2. open the login window
3. type the account name and password
4. click remember password (if it shows)
5. logout
6. open the login window again
Actual Results:  
The account name and password weren't automatically completed.

Expected Results:  
My account name and password were supposed to be already written in the boxes.

If it's of any help or relevance, I do have to state that I'm using the portable version of Firefox 4 final (from
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.2a1pre) Gecko/20110328 Firefox/4.2a1pre 

Able to reproduce in firefox 3.6.16 also.

Chances are with grooveshark being a very JS heavy app, that the form is script generated (which we don't detect - bug 355063) and is doing it's own form submission with ajax. The first part is possible to fix, the second part not so much.
This is working for me now. It was likely fixed by bug 355063 and possibly changes on Grooveshark's part to use a form submission.
