Dude is engaged. Dude doesn't want Chick to know he's traipsing around on Swinging websites, so he specifies 'Never save passwords on this site' when Firefox asks him at login.
Chick uses same computer later. Chick originally specifies 'Don't save this password' when logging in to a (presumably non-sleazy) website, but changes her mind and goes into Password Manager to fix it.
Chick sees Dude's 'Never Save Password' site list.
Chick and Dude are no longer engaged.
The best part of this story? How I heard about it: from a Mozilla bug report!
This privacy flaw has caused my fiancé and I to break-up after having dated for
Basically, we share one computer but under separate Windows XP user accounts.
We both use Mozilla Firefox -- well, he used to use it more than I do but now
we don't really use it. The privacy flaw is this: when he went to log-in under
his dating sites (jdate.com, swinglifestyle.com, adultfriendfinder.com, etc.),
Mozilla promptly asks whether or not he'd like Firefox to save the passwords
for him. He chose never, obviously. However, when he logged off his user
account, and I logged onto my Windows XP account X amount of days later . . .
Firefox prompted whether or not I'd like it to save my password for logging
into my website. I chose never and changed my mind. I went into the Password
Manager to change the saved password option from Never to Always and that's
when I saw all these other sites that had been selected as "Never Save
Password." Of course, those were sites I had never visited or could ever dream
Then I realized who, how and what... and sh*t hit the fan. Your browser does
not efficiently respect the privacy of different users for one system.
Here's the head-scratcher from my perspective: the woman wrote a bug report on the 'feature' that allowed her to determine her betrothed was a sleazebag BEFORE marrying him (as an aside, the comment thread on the bug report is pretty damn funny too), on the grounds that it failed to maintain his privacy.
I wonder if Dude has any idea what he just lost.
