User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0 Build ID: 20111104165243 Steps to reproduce: My username is Noitidart with a capital N. Firefox remember my username as noitidart with lower n. So when I type in Noitidart, as I click to password field it lower cases the n. So whenever I try to login, it tells me invalid username. This is a firefox browser problem huh? Actual results: swithces to lower case version that is remembered Expected results: it should not switch to lower case version/remembered version if i dont click on it.
[Please describe the problem in the bug summary, instead of posting an URL. Thanks.]

Duplicate of bug: 680538
This is not a dupe of bug 680538 (& I don't think I can undupe/reopen it?). That bug is about the AMO Forum software, this bug is about Firefox itself. This bug is about the Firefox Password Manager remembering his login info with a lowercase username (probably how he originally told it to remember it) & not letting him override/update that remembered username. It was probably always remembered as lowercase...& always worked, until bug 680538 was fixed. Fixing bug 680538 caused a slight case-sensitive username issue, for which I've posted a possible solution. So this bug should be about letting Firefox be taught to "forget the old username" & "let me give you a new username to remember". So, to try to reproduce this bug, remember a username/password for ANY site... Username: testing Password: testing ...logout of that site & try to login again, this time try to type the username differently... Username: TESTing ...according to his report, if you type the username, with a different case than what was remembered, once you move to the password field, Firefox will helpfully lowercase -- or "return to the remembered case" -- the username, thinking you typed it wrong. Firefox should not fight you on this. It should allow you to type the username with a different case & leave you alone. I believe there should be a way to... 1. Forget the old-cased username & remember the new one. 2. Remember both cases of username (if desired).

This is a dup of bug #499649, I think.
