The new version of Safari no longer inserts my password but shows a message to click to insert my password… what a hassle… then there's the message that the website won't allow auto insert of password, that is until I switch to using Firefox which inserts the password automatically like the previous version of Safari.

if they do this to make surfing safer why allow to click to insert password at all, seems someone needed to justify their job or they never use websites that require passwords.

I've yet to see the click-to-insert behavior, but the other one is a reflection of Safari, by default, properly rendering the page as coded. Happily, I used the phrase "by default" by which you should infer that it can be changed. Open Safari's preferences and click on the Passwords tab. There's a checkbox that tells it not to respect that particular bit of HTML.
