Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

OK, I hope this is not the one million and first question about this problem :) I didn't find any similar question.

I have a Stack Exchange account, and when I try to sign in to it, Firefox doesn't suggest saving my account and password. It seems is because of that log in the page's properties.

Is there any solution?

Edit: It works correctly with other sites, and I am logged in while have not deleted the cookies, but when I delete the cookies and try to log in, there is no suggestion because Firefox has not saved anything.

Briefly when I enter my username and password, I want my browser to ask me "Remember this account?" like other sites do.

Doesn't the site remember your login through cookies + HTML 5 local storage? Any idea what's wrong with the form - any other pages not work for you? – Rup Jun 30 '11 at 14:15

Auto complete is disabled on StackID forms. You can find the relevant code here.

This is a workaround for browsers not exposing a way to detect when a field has been auto-completed. This tends to smash our field overlays, greatly confusing users.

I'm field testing a (really unpleasant) work around for this auto-complete nonsense browsers have. All major browsers should now offer to save credentials entered into Stack Exchange sites.
