Steps to reproduce:

I saved 4 passwords on a site

Actual results:

only 2 of the 4 passwords and user names show up in the pull down list when I click to sign in to the page. 

Expected results:

um, gee I wonder. I just installed this version to fix other thing with the password saving that didn't work in 5.0 and get this issues that I didn't have in 5.0, 4.0 or 3.0! this is **** like IE does! Do you people have a clue? (nevermind, obviously you don't). okay,,so obviously since you don't have a clue, I will answer this stupid question as well: ALL FOUR OF THE PASSWORDS I SAVED SHOULD BE APPEARING IN THE DROP DOWN LIST, NOT JUST 2, you know, like in versions 3,4 and 5.0 and I assume in 1 or 2 as well. or am I wrong here, is this the new design, save four passwords, get only 2? They all show up in my password list but are unusable if they don't show up where I need them to. God you people's ineptness is annoying as hell. You fix one thing and break six other things that were working before. I just have to find the other 5 now.

Firefox saves 1 combination of site/username. Did you save the password for 4 different usernames or just different forms on the same site?

On which site(s) did this occur?

What entries show up in the Saved Passwords manager for that site?

no I am completely a noob and have never ever used a browser before or saved a password in my entire life. If I was that stupid, I couldn't write this. Not only that, but I believe I have answered this question in the text of the bug. I said there in detail what I did and also stated that it was working in previous versions. Firefox and every other browser (when they are working correctly, which is rarely) saves any number of "combinations" of passwords and user names. But 5.01 doesn't. or I mean, it saves them in the list in "options", but then they don't show up half the time when I click in the user name field. This is another obvious routine case of engineers fixing 1 thing and breaking 3 others that were working.
