Login name in dropdown not corresponding to stored URL


  • Moderator

    I have current flag chrome://flags/#fill-on-account-select Enabled
    and chrome://settings/autofill Disabled.
    In Vivaldi password manager were stored two logins with different usernames for same domain but with different URLs.
    If i open these URLs Vivaldi shows two logins instead only the one for the URL.

    Example for such store logins:

    URL | username | password | 
    https://example.org/forum/admin/edit/editor.php | admin | 4711Viv4lD1 
    https://example.org/forum/admin/ed1t/feedback.php | fbadmin | oxbow22iv4lDO 
    

    I expected only to see the login corresponding to the stored URL.
    I remember Opera 12 could distinguish the logins.
    Wierd feature derived from Chromium?
    Any explanation?

    @Gwen-Dragon I have noticed that chrome's algorithm tends to just match saved passwords on a pretty wide base looking at the domain only.

    I don't think there is a way to configure it otherwise, unfortunately.

    Oh, that is the reason. 😞
