** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox-3.5
- (may be related to bug #469981)
  If I have two username/password pairs for two web applications in the
  same domain (say http://example.com/app1/login and
  http://example.com/app2/login), and if the usernames happen to differ
  only in the case (say "Foo" for app1 and "foo" for app2), whenever I try
  to login to app2 the auto-completion feature will always change "foo" to
  "Foo". Whether I manually type it in completely or select it from the
  dropdown list doesn't make a difference, I'm unable to enter the correct
  username and therefore to login. I didn't find any magic combination of
  keys to work it around.
  I didn't test but I guess the same happens when the two usernames are
  used for the same application as well.
