Mozilla browser

Can anyone tell me why Mozilla wants to put a capital letter as the first letter on some websites, when I try to put in user name? My user name is all small caps, and Mozilla always wants to capitalize first letter. i can't find out how to turn this off.

Have you checked the options/preferences?

I'm actually fairly certain you won't find it in the preferences... I don't see it, at least, using 1.2.1

Is Mozilla the only one? What about Phoenix, Opera, etc?

Also, is this only for username boxes, or ANY text-box? If it's only for username boxes, I would wager a guess that you asked it to save the login information at sometime, and you had mis-typed it.

Konquerer does not do this. And yes, only at one site does it do this. I have been there before in Mozilla, and did not mis-type it. It wouldn't let me from the beginning.

Click Tools -> Password Manager -> Manage Stored Passwords. Look up the site you have the problem with and delete the entry. Try loggin in again without the capital and see how that goes.
