1. Load in the browser (also tried with and
2. Log in. Do not allow the browser to save your password.
3. Log out and log in with another account. Allow the browser to save your password this time.
4. Log out again.
5. Remove the email address in the logging in textbox.
6. Press the down arrow while the focus is still on the textbox (or click it twice).

Expected Results: The two email addresses used are listed as autofill options.

Actual Results: Only the email address for which the password was saved too is offered as an autofill option. If the user starts typing in the other email address, no autofill options are displayed.

If the user logged in with 3 or more different accounts and only saved his credentials for two accounts, nothing is autofilled when opening the page again. When he clicks twice on the email/username textbox, only the emails/usernames he saved the passwords for are listed for autofill. When he starts typing the email he didn't save the password for, no autofill options are displayed.
This bug doesn't seem to be a regression since it also reproduces on Firefox 4.0.
