    Cannot log-into this forum using saved passwords


    I cannot log-into this eightforums.com using saved username-password with my mozilla browser "Pale Moon".
    - no problems logging into sevenforums.com or any other forums I visit. (About 90 forums on my bookmarks)

    This a potted history of what I have tried and the results

    My "Saved Password" (in mozilla browser "PaleMoon") for eightforums.com is asleep.

    At sevenforums.com when logging in, typing the first letter of my name and the Name field is auto filled.
    - by tabbing-to (or selecting) the Password field the password is auto completed.
    - then enable "Remember me" > Login ... and I am logged in.

    But here at eightforums.com none of the automation works.

    In my saved passwords there are two entries for eightforums.com (with identical passwords but different usernames.

    I have deleted both eightforums password entries and closed my browser.

    Restart browser at https://www.eightforums.com
    - the result is ... https://www.eightforums.com/
    When I copy/paste my name + password eightforums recognises me and I am logged in.
    - I accept the "save password" offer

    My password entry shows my Username as "Password" + the correct password string.
    - and the address as "https://www.eightforums.com"
    - but the web-page address is "https://www.eightforums.com/" ... with the trailing forward slash
    In saved passwords database I changed the Username "Password" to "bawldiggle"
    Closed browser and restarted browser at https://www.eightforums.com
    - Remember me was already checked

    When I started typing my Username "bawldiggle" it was not detected.
    - with the correct username manually entered, eightforums did not auto-fill the password

    So I deleted both entries in saved-passwords
    - close browser -- manually logged into eightforums.com > and changed my password
    - closed all browser windows and rebooted browser

    With the correct new password manually entered eightforums rejected my log-in attempt.
    - eightforums flicked to a standalone log-in page that told me either my username or password is incorrect (with both fields already populated). I changed nothing and clicked log-in and eightforums recognized the identical username + password that was rejected not one minute earlier.

    Closed browser completely to log-in again to eightforums.com.
    - eightforums log-in fields do not recognize my saved username nor new password
    - when I manually enter username + my new password I am offered this (remember password)

    ... but my username is not "Password"

    Manually entering (copy-paste) my username + password is becoming tedious
    - at sevenforums I have the same username but a different password and it never fails.
    What am I doing wrong

    I just installed Pale Moon.
    I logged in to the forum & was asked to save the info.
    It was saved.

    Hi David
    It's not playing for me and only on this forum. !
    - I thought by changing my password it might have "fixed" the problem ... but it hasn't

    Looks like a clean install of PaleMoon ... first in 4 years.
    - either corrupt .sqlite and/or .db files ... or gremlins
