Preventing password alerts

Hi,
After logging in most of the sites using fire fox a message will display like this " Do you want to remember the password for "..... (username) " on ...(server) ?.

How can block this message or alerts through client side or server side program ? . A good example for this implementation is gmail. I am using java/jsp for developing my application.

Thanks

When you look into that sort of solutions, you often find that what have been done is to put the username and the password fields OUTSIDE of the form itself and then use a script to collect them.

I have this template in my template dictionary:
