[pmwiki-users] Remember Password Feature in Firefox

I actually thought, that this would work e.g. with gmx.net, but due to 
your mail I tried the site again, and noticed that FF only remembers one 
username and password. I'm pretty sure this was working once, but it 
seems that this feature went missing.

Anyways, this seems to be a FF limitation and probably has nothing to do 
with pmwiki.

Thanks again,
