Like G, I use PaleMoon and no problems there. 

Trying Firefox 40, entered username & password, clicked option to save. 
Closed browser/reopened and FF remembered username but not pw.  Entered and clicked option to save. 
Next and subsequent times, both username & pw fields were filled in but I had to click the Login button.

I had the same results with Firefox ESR as FF40.  IE11 and Microsoft Edge both work fine.

What is the box below the login area that only shows when not logged in?

OpenID.

Put the cursor in the box, enter a letter and press enter.
You will see a big login-window.
Click on the "?" on the line with OpenId, and you can read this:

"Authenticate with OpenID
OpenID is a means of using one username across different websites, to simplify the online experience.
To use OpenID you first need to create an OpenID account - a list of providers can be found on the OpenID Official Site

Once you have an OpenID account simply enter your unique identification URL into the OpenID input box and submit.
You will then be taken to your providers site to verify your identity before being passed back to this site.

On your first visit to this site you will be asked to confirm a couple of details before you will be recognized,
after which you can login to this site and change your profile settings using just your OpenID.

For more information please visit the http://openid.net/

No trouble to login here.

Wait at some pages it does not have me login? I don't know just what is going and and too much trouble for me to look into it right now so I can give you my input on it.

I do not trust OpenID or login your Google, Facebook or any other account to login into many other accounts.
