Password management problems

Password management problems

I've been using conkeror for a while, and at some point password 
management stopped working. Conkeror no longer displays a prompt offering 
to remember new passwords; existing passwords can still be edited with M-x
password-manager but conkeror no longer automatically fills out the 
passwords for any of the websites that I tried.

I have tried using a new empty profile with a minimal rc file containing 
just the required password management code suggested on the conkeror wiki 
(http://conkeror.org/PasswordManagement):

session_pref("signon.rememberSignons", true);
session_pref("signon.expireMasterPassword", false);
session_pref("signon.SignonFileName", "signons.txt");
Cc["@mozilla.org/login-manager;1"].getService(Ci.nsILoginManager); // init

The version is Conkeror 1.0pre on Xulrunner 28.0. Does anyone have any
ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks!
