how do you code a form so that firefox asks the user

"do you want firefox to remember this password?"

note I am _not_ asking how to turn that on in firefox.  
I am _not_asking how to code a "remember me" box.

I am asking, how do you code the form, what do you write in the html, to trigger firefox password saving for the user.



thank you.

I'm not sure, I have a form with regular name, action, method set and FF ask me everytime I try to log in.

<form name="newgamebits login" method="post" action="<? print $resultpage ?>">

the rset of the form is a username textbox and a password textbox.

Yeah, it must be the password textbox that triggers it, this simple example works

<html>
<head>
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
<form method="POST" action="test.asp">  
    Username: <input type="text" name="username" size="15" /><br />  
    Password: <input type="password" name="pass" size="15" /><br />  
    <p><input type="submit" value="Login" /></p>
</form>
</body>
</html>

No comment has been added to this question in more than 21 days, so it is now classified as abandoned.

I will leave the following recommendation for this question in the Cleanup Zone:
 Split: gamebits {18744959} & RedKelvin {18833627} & water_foul {18921970}

Any objections should be posted here in the next 4 days. After that time, the question will be closed.
