I have two cPanel accounts at the same machine (shared hosting). I am connecting to cPanel with Firefox (3.5.3) on Mac (10.5.8).

I enter site IP in address bar and this basic authentication popup (Authentication Required) appears:

Authentication Required

Firefox remembered both usernames/passwords, but every time when I connect to the site, it only offers me one username/password (and always the same one), and there is no way I could select the other one (like I can on sites that have login page instead of basic authentication popup).

I am sure Firefox remembered both passwords, because I can see them in Saved Passwords.

Saved Passwords

Also, when I make the mistake while entering the other username/password, Firefox asks if I want to change the password for the other username, so I guess it knows it.

Is there a way I can get to the other username/password?

As far as I know, there is no way to do what you want with the default Firefox setup. The pop-up authentication will only remember the most recent password, not giving you a drop-down like it does with in-page remembered passwords.

You may want to check out some password add-ons at Mozilla.

Thanks, I would rather use only build in Firefox features, but I will take a look at add-ons. – Željko Filipin Sep 21 '09 at 14:24
Do you know of a specific add-on that would do what I want? – Željko Filipin Sep 21 '09 at 14:49
