17<para>According to the financial institutions, the following hack makes your
18browser insecure. You have been warned. Many sites use an MS-IE specific tag
19(autocomplete=off) to prevent autocomplete from working in some forms. This
20tag is now supported in mozilla to appease the financial institutions. As per
21the requirements of the financial institutions, they will not even accept a
22solution where this a preference option. However our opinion is that it should
23be in the hands of the user. To enable autocomplete to bypass
24this restriction, we need to make a slight modification in the code.</para>

26<para>Open the file <filename>extensions/wallet/src/wallet.cpp</filename> in
27the mozilla source tree and search for the line:
28<screen>#define WALLET_DONT_CACHE_ALL_PASSWORDS</screen>
29Then delete or comment out the line. Now, if anyone tells you MS-IE is user
30friendly, give them this example!</para>
