I've had to resort to browser-based password management, mostly on Chrome at the moment. The problem: far too many passwords to remember. Reusing passwords across different sites is potentially disastrous for security, thus a password manager is the most secure, but still viable, option.

It's annoying to save them, but, once done, it's completely transparent. You don't even know anything is happening. It just logs you in.

Although the saving of passwords with Firefox is supposed to be helpful. I find it more annoying than anything else.

ALT plus R, followed by R tells Firefox to remember the password.

ALT plus N followed by N says: No, don't remember the password.

JAWS doesn't report correctly that you need the single keystroke after the ALT combinations. But when I went into the dialog boxes, I saw that, unless the single letters are used after the ALT combinations, the dialog is still open and waiting to be activated. This is why it keeps coming up repeatedly. Firefox doesn't think the dialog box has been answered unless the ALT combinations are used followed by either the single letter R for Remember, or N for No are used.

Bill, what do the keystrokes do, why is it alt+r and then r or alt+n and n?

Yes. When it asks you if you want to save your password, for yes, press ALT plus R, followed by R. If no, press ALT plus N followed by N.
