 I want to be able to decide whether to save usernames and passwords
 (understanding the risks) rather than allowing web sites to decide for me
 by using autocomplete=off.

 If I can't use the Tor browser to save passwords, I'll have to write them
 down manually, which is error prone, or choose more easily remembered
 passwords, which is a backward step in security.  I'd rather have the
 browser remember them automatically, and then protect the hell out of the
 machine on which I run the browser.

 Some sites have even gotten especially silly about it, using
 autocomplete=off on the username field, then sending my username to me in
 the clear on every page.
