Not sure if this is possible -- I have a username and password combo which is valid for all sub-domains of a given domain, that is: domain1.example.com, domain2.example.com, domain3.example.com, etc. Is there any way I can tell Firefox that the saved password for one of these subdomains is valid for all of them? RIght now I have been retyping it for each one, and saving them individually. But the list of these subdomains will be constantly growing...

You can do this using firefox addon called LastPass. This addon recognizes that subdomains and prompts you to use previously saved password.

LastPass is also a third party service which stores your password in 128bit encrypted cloud server. Your passwords never leave your system. Passwords are encrypted on system and then sent server.

hope this helps.

Good suggestion. I was hoping for a built in way but it looks like there's not. I suppose this would eliminate Firefox's annoying habit of asking me for my master password 10,000 times. Thanks! –  Josh Nov 13 '09 at 13:10

I filed a bug for this on Firefox. Surprised it wasn't filed already: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=589628
