Firefox not remembering logins and passwords

  VNAM75 19:15 22 Apr 2009

I keep having to sign in to this site and my yahoo email but it remembers (pre fills) my gmail details. I have not run any registry/file cleaners. Anyone help?

might help...

in firefox click tools
then options
then privacy
then make sure accept cookies from sites has a check mark and make sure always clear my private data when i close fire fox is not checked


Tools | Options | Security tab

Half way down that tab you can click a box to remember passwords

You don't need to do that - just only tick what data you want cleared (eg - cache).

I've set the 3 options as above but it doesn't work. Thanks anyway.

A likely cause is the file that stores cookies may be corrupt.

Thanks for that. I may just reinstall the whole thing.

Did you try roboform? I know it is not free but very useful!
