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

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