Re: [FireFox] Firefox 15.01 stopped prompting to save new passwo
I am using the "Secure Login" extension. That allows me to fill in passwords, even for sites that turn this off.
I also use "Saved Password Editor" which allows me to save passwords for such sites.
Unlike you, I do keep banking passwords in firefox, though I have firefox encrypt them (with a master password).
In my opinion, having firefox keep the passwords is more secure - I wish the banks would understand that. If I am tricked by a phishing site that looks like the real bank site, then firefox will not fill in the password (even using "Secure Login"), because it keys the password to the specific site. If I am manually entering passwords, I can be more easily tricked.
I do, however, use a separate firefox profile for browsing. So when visiting sites such as dslr (for example), firefox does not have my banking passwords, since those are only available to a different profile.

Unlike you, I'm still a little squeamish about storing bank passwords in Firefox. I've used another off-browser technique that has worked very well for me for years.
I'm grateful though to find out that the problem with not prompting for new passwords in not actually a problem with Firefox at all.
Thank you for your insight. Much obliged.
