Public bug reported:


similar problem on two machines: After upgrading ubuntu from 15.10 to
16.04 firefox does not fill passwords in login forms anymore, although
it has the passwords in it's password store. I have to manually open the
Security/Saved Logins page, pick the password and copy it into the form.
