How to enter a URL in to the "exceptions" box in Firefox


This isn't necessarily a Linux question.

I use ver 2 of Firefox. When I go in to "Edit">"Preferences">"Security" there is a check box called "Remember passwords for sites". It has a button called "Exceptions". When you push this button a dialog box comes up, saying "Password Manager will never save login information for the following sites:" Then below this is the word "Sites". Below this is the site that won't have information saved for it. Below this are buttons to remove a site(s) listed above.

My question is: How do you get a site into "Exceptions"? I've tried typing or pasting in sites but it won't accept it. It's easy and intuitive to remove sites, but not to add them.

Thanks,

royeo

It works when you have the passwd manager enabled and enter a login+pass combo at a site. FF then asks you if you want to remember it or "never for this site", and thats when it'll end up in "exceptions".
