Firefox Password Manager Stupid

Thu Jul 23 19:43:07 2015

Apparently the clowns over at firefox don't know how the domain name system works. I'm writing an image gallery site, and firefox keeps wanting to change my saved password for "if.org". Ok, look, first of all, the domain name is "granicus.if.org", not "if.org". Second, the site at https://granicus.if.org/gallery/ has nothing to do with anything else hosted on granicus. It's a completely different site. But the notion that maybe there's more than one level to the DNS and that just perhaps a single domain name could host more than one service seems to escape the geniuses at firefox.
