20<para>According to the financial institutions, the following hack makes your
21browser insecure. You have been warned. Many sites use an MS-IE specific tag
22(autocomplete=off) to prevent autocomplete from working in some forms. This
23tag is now supported in <application>Mozilla</application> to appease the financial institutions. As per
24the requirements of the financial institutions, they will not even accept a
25solution where this a preference option. However our opinion is that it should
26be in the hands of the user. To enable autocomplete to bypass
27this restriction, we need to make a slight modification in the code.</para>

29<para>Open the file <filename>extensions/wallet/src/wallet.cpp</filename> in
30the <application>Mozilla</application> source tree and search for the line:
31<screen>#define WALLET_DONT_CACHE_ALL_PASSWORDS</screen>
32Then delete or comment out the line. Now, if anyone tells you MS-IE is user
33friendly, give them this example!</para>
