I tried all those things and nothing worked. Here's what did (Firefox). Go to tools, options,and then privacy. Click on settings next to the history box at the bottom. Uncheck everything you don't want cleared each time Firefox closes--I only want it to clear my cache so that's the only box I checked. Hope this helps--now when I open Hotmail I not only don't have to sign-in but it also goes straight to my Inbox. Not sure why the settings suddenly changed on me, but they did.
Solution for me: TURN OFF PRIVATE BROWSING! (Tools, Options, Privacy). I did this, visited all my regular sites where I enter username and password, entered them, firefox offered to remember & I accepted. Then if you want private browsing back on you can do so and it will still remember your login details. Job done ;-)
I have windows XP and internet explorer
This is what I did and it worked llike a charm for me.
Go to Tools / Internet options / Open content tab / In Auto complete click on settings and make sure these options are enable with a check mark in the box.
Address bar ...Browsing history...Favorites....Forms and User name passwords on forms.
Hope this help
Same thing with me. It USED to save all my login credentials to my daily internet sites then one day it stopped autofilling. Now, everytime I log into my sites I have to retype my user name and password. I have full explored Internet Options, set all settings to the lowest. When I lauch my IE browser, it still makes me login liek I ahve never been there before BUT it promts me to save them and I say yes. I then close my browser and relaunch in and guess what, it still makes me login like I never was there. Im ready to scream. Please help
add me to the list. I have a Mac running XP under Parallels virtual machine and it started losing saved credentials approx 3 or 4 weeks ago.
I tried almost everything peeking in the system registers but came up with nothing.
Only thing I noticed is if I just LOG OUT and then log back in, it WON'T lose username/password.
It's when I REBOOT that all the saved credentials are wiped out.
A nice new virus or just a bug coming with the latest Windows update?
I'm having the exact same problem. Started a couple of months ago. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Its very annoying and of course you can't get a human to help. I'm hoping its a glitch they will fix. SOON.
Beware that many people reported Raymond's fix as working BUT they lost all their Favourites / Bookmarks. On the same page there is a reply (number 42) where Adam gives a registry fix for the problem that has no side effects.
Anon that would help a lot, but for some reason the only thing I have for RegEdit is
Which mine is different then what you posted and this is with the latest Windows Live Messenger.
Sorry guys I should have added that my "long big number" (as Roka so eloquently described it) was also different than what Paul said it would be however again as Roka says it will be different for everyone. Even so it worked for me so should work for you too as long as you ignore the fact that the "long big number" will be different.
Now then......how do I find this 'Paul' person and buy him a pint as a mark of thanks!
