Some web sites, including many banks and a few other sites, tell browsers not to remember passwords for visitors by using autocomplete="off".
Which is what that page does, Firefox respects the web page author's coding in pages like that.

This bookmarklet makes the browser ignore autocomplete="off" temporarily, allowing you to save passwords even on sites that use autocomplete="off".

Remember Password bookmarklet:

Or, you can use the Saved Passwords Editor extension for web sites where Firefox doesn't offer to save the Username/Password.

Saved Passwords Editor works very well for me on Firefox.

Does it show as a choice under your Tools menu in Firefox? If not, you may not have it installed correctly.
