No; I searched for "password" and "firefox", I believe.  Obviously
there were a number of entries mentioning passwords, but none about
saving them.

I'd suggest making sure "password" is in the index for that FAQ, yes.
If there *is* such a FAQ; you haven't yet exhibited one that has
anything to do with the issue I'm raising.

I don't see where "saving my changes" would come in; definitely not
something I'd search for when the issue is that browsers aren't
recognizing a password field.

I'm not convinced there's anything about this in the FAQ.

4.65 is not about the issue I'm raising; that's about cookie issues,
whereas my case is that the password field isn't recognized in the
first place.
