In & JollaC it seems that the browser does not really save login/password pairs, even when it is asked and user clicks 'Save'. When accessing the same (https) login page again, the same saving question pops up every time. And this is in standard, not private browsing mode.

Peculiarly, /home/nemo/.mozilla/mozembed does contain key3.db and logins.json, but the latter does not seem to be updated. signons.sqlite is also missing, but that's likely deprecated already.

As well as the mozilla profile, the browser stores some stuff here:
including bookmarks. I've looked in sailfish-browser.sqlite and I know it contains history, but I don't know what else. Passwords maybe?

Looking at the file dates in the profile folder it seems some of it is unused, and that may be true of passwords. My guess - and only a guess - us that anything involving the SFOS GUI, as password saving does, has been reimplemented.
