Can the Firefox password manager store and manage passwords for multiple sub-domains, or for multiple URLs in the same domain? The default behavior of Firefox is that all requests for *.domain.com are treated as the same. I'd like to have Firefox do the following:
Yes, the password is always stored for the complete domain.
It wouldn't make sense if it didn't. For instance, imagine trying to log in to wordpress or blogspot hosted sites...
EDIT: an example:
The Firefox password manager supports saving a password for both domains.(Ning actually exists, by the way)
The Firefox password manager will happily store more than set of login details per domain (and realm), as long as you have different user names for each login.
I have a main Google account and two accounts on Google Apps systems, so three accounts on the www.google.com domain.
For mail.google.com/a/company1.com the login name is my first name, for mail.google.com/a/company2.com the login name is a nickname, and for the main www.google.com my login is my full email address.
All I do is either start typing the login name, and then select the correct one for the service from the list of three that Firefox has remembered, Firefox then happily fills in the password field for me. Have also used on some other websites that I have multiple accounts on.
For anyone else coming to this question through google, here's the trick: login through gmail. Logging in through apps doesn't let you specify a domain, but the gmail login page does!
- Open these pages in your browser:
- Login with firstname.lastname@example.org (or whatever you have) and your password.
(You may need multiple signon enabled.)
