EI conditions for remembering logins?

I have some cases, where I wonder, what causes IE (and other browsers)
to remember passwords?

The point is that an old extranet thing does not offer that, with a
form of only the items that you can imagine.
The fields are named trUserNick and trUserPass - the latter being of
type Password.
Should they be properly named Password (name="") or does IE look at
the type of field?

Then again, in Firefox it offers passwords when editing users... where
there are 2 fields for password. Should they they be named something

This has nothing to do with PHP.  Try a more appropriate newsgroup.

I can't figure out how IE works but I suppose Firefox looks for <input
type="password"> items. I read the exact algorithm somewhere en
bugzilla.mozilla.org but I can't remember where. Never mind, they
changed the behaviour in recent versions and it might change in the
future so I wouldn't care about details. As for the edit user page, you
can try this attribute:


Firefox enforces it.
