"It sucks that the pages haven't authored properly to work with Mozilla! Everytime I open one of these pages, I get a select user dialog with a dozen entries all with the same username! The only thing different is the 'Title' field of the reply/comment form."

That's Password Manager that sucks, not this site (well, we do suck but in entirely different ways). Password Manager works great with forms that only have login and password fields and other fields where the user will always enter the same information. When one of those fields has varying data, Password Manager thinks its a separate login. This then exposes Password Manager's less-than-ideal method of dealing with multiple logins for one site.
