I will try to explain but it is not easy  ;D
Let me give an example.
I have configured an account "live.com" to access my Outlook email.
When I am on the live.com login webpage, I trigger passwordmaker and I expect it to show me the password that it is linked to the live.com account that I created a few days.
It however seems that passwordmaker is not able to recognize that I am now on the webpage of the live.com account and it keeps on giving me a password linked to the default account.
In order to get the password, I have to click on the name of the account and then only I will get my true password.
I thought that it could work more automatically, tell me if I am mistaken.
Anyway, I hope I am clear enough with my explanation. If not, let me know :)
Thanks for your help again.

Whether or not Passwordmaker 'recognizes' the site depends on what you have on the 'URLs' tab in the account settings.

You have to have a matching entry. You can use wildcards (easiest), or use a regex (I still have trouble with these)...

Caveat - for security purposes, you should always make sure the full TLD is included - ie:

OK - https://login.microsoftonline.com/login*

NOT OK - *microsoftonline*login

Thanks for so quick answer, very appreciated.

Regarding the example I gave, I cant make it work:

Webpage address: https://login.live.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&ct=1462995432&rver=6.6.6556.0&wp=MBI_SSL&wreply=https:%2F%2Foutlook.live.com%2Fowa%2F&id=292841&CBCXT=out

"Using text" field filled automatically by passwordmaker after I trigger it = "live.com"

URL input in the account = "*login.live.com*"

The 'using Text' field is just something that is used to calculate the password. It could be anything, but it defaults to the base TLD, which is unique to the site, which is fine. Personally, for security purposes, I always modify this in such a manner that it is still based on the site URL, but not the exact TLD.

Remember, I said you need to always use the full TLD - including the full protocol, so:

https://login.live.com/login*

Meaning, 'Starts with and contains'

"*login.live.com*" is easily fooled...

Thanks but I am not successful.
Even after input https://login.live.com/login* as URL in account parameter, go to outlook webpage as per my previous post and trigger passwordmaker, it is still unable to recognize it  >:(
