Two-page login broken?

Unread postby ThirdTryCharm » Thu, 12 Apr 2018, 15:17

I recently upgraded to this version 27.8.3 (64-bit) and the two-page login has stopped putting my saved Password into the second page. Nothing has changed regarding Add-ons, I just used the Linux Installer/Updater.

It puts in the login name OK, but then the next page for Password, I have to go to the Saved passwords and get the Password and paste it in.

Firefox Works OK for two-page login, so pretty sure it is not a website-thing.

Is there an option for that in about:config or something?

Don't know, I think it is made in order to prevent automatic authentication, I guess. But it doesn't explain why it works fine with Firefox

The release notes of 27.7.0 contain this:

  • Disabled automatic filling in of log-in details by default to prevent potential risks of credentials being abused (e.g. for tracking) or stolen.

There should be an option in the preferences to change the behaviour

Tools => Preferences => Security => Passwords => Automatically fill in...
