Unless each of these uses the same faulty API to determine whether to offer to save the password or not, there must be something different about the mailman page that's fooling them. Maybe the lack of a username field?

That's likely to be the reason then, but it doesn't explain why my Firefox does ask to save the password, without any plugins.
