Firefox doesn't offer to store deluge-web password

deluge-web is protected with a password which has to be entered after a re-login after a certain time. It'd be nice if Firefox would offer to save this password like it does for almost any other website/service.

I'm using 2.0.0.dev7009+8a0b7d9+201703231147~ubuntu16.10.1 and Firefox 52.0.1 on Ubuntu 16.10.

Hmm might need something like this in the login form:

Fyi you can change the session timeout in prefs.

Any plan to improve this?

I confirmed this problem with Firefox on Windows/Linux/Mac. While Chrome has no this problem.

It is a trouble for me. Hundreds of my sites are OK to remember password except deluge. I had to open KeePass to find the random password. I am wavering to Chrome or a replacement of deluge.

Could it be a problem of popup window? I think popup window is not popular. Can we change it to a normal page after redirection?

Saving the password used to work fine with Firefox but privacy/security changes to Firefox mean that it no longer stores passwords for HTTP websites, only HTTPS (although not with self-cert exception). There is a Firefox config signon.autofillForms.http to enable saving with HTTP sites but I could not get it to work.

It seems that chrome still does offer to save passwords for HTTP.

I did also test with setting the webui autocomplete attribute to on for the password input but that made no difference.
