Sorry for not providing all the details. Thought it applies to all the firefox installations.

My installation:

  • Firefox 65.0
  • Ubuntu 18.04

Don t find it urgent since not that many users access the global configuration (at least according to the bugs tracker + forum posts). I will just mark it as confirmed with low priority.

Why should it apply to all Firefox installations (versions)? Seems to be a better sensing / feature of the browser. Firefox 67 will offer an improved new password manager. Perhaps 65 already contain some changes.

LimeSurvey might can rearrange the forms with password, to prevent too many trigger.

«LimeSurvey might can rearrange the forms with password, to prevent too many trigger.» Already try with clean HTML

Except with a lot of worakround JS : no real solution.
