[pmwiki-users] Remember Password Feature in Firefox

I know this might be a firefox-issue, but I thought I'd still give this 
list a try, since the problem only occurs to me with pmwiki pages.

I'm using the "remember my password"-feature from firefox and I have a 
pmwiki-page. Now I have two different pages, let's say Main.Page1 and 

I set the passwords for viewing, editing, attribute changing and 
uploading for the first page to "page1" and for the second page to "page2".

Now, the first time I try to open Main.Page1 it asks for a password. I 
enter "page1" and allow firefox to store the password. Now, when I go to 
got to Main.Page2, firefox fills in the password field with the stored 
password "page1", which obviously doesn't open the site.

If I enter the correct password "page2", firefox asks me if I want to 
change the previously stored password.

How come, that firefox doesn't recognize, that Main.Page1 and Main.Page2 
are different pages, and store the passwords for each Page individually?

Could this have to do with the Adress-Rewrite-Rules, that make Links to 
Pages appear as: http://www.example.com/Main/Page1?

Thanks for your tipps,
