IE Wont Remember passwords, if the site uses .htaccess for the password system.

Q: IE Wont Remember passwords, if the site uses .htaccess for the password system.

Form passwords work fine, its just .htaccess

It wont remeber the username or password

Preferred Solution: IE Wont Remember passwords, if the site uses .htaccess for the password system.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:

- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.

Any help would be very apreciated.

If you have the same username(s) and password(s) on both machines, pass through authentication should occur, and you should not be prompted for a password.

ok how come IE won't remeber passwords it remebers my username but not password for any site?

A:IE wont remember passwords?

You need to enable cookies and change settings under IE so that it does not delete cookies and saved passwords on exit. Also, many third party apps like CCleaner will clean cookies when run. Theres an option in CCleaner to exclude cookies of your choice from being deleted.

This is a good read.

After recently reinstalling XP Professional on new motherboard, everything is operating peachy-keen, except that the system will not remember program passwords, even though I issue instructions to do so. I am forced to use a work-around program to remember passwords, but that should not be necessary if the basic system were operating normally. I suspect there is some missing or corrupted file within the OS that governs password memory, but I don't know what it might be or where to look for it. Sure could use a shove in the right direction.

I dont know if this is a comcast issue or a windows xp issue.
I type my password in and username at the login prompt on comcast webmail website.
I check the box to "remember this password" and when i close Internet explorer and come back, it doesnt remember me.

Ive tried renewing my internet connection, delete all cache + temp files, and clearing my history.

I have a windows xp pro machine running ie 7.

Does any one have any recommendations or links to help solve this issue?
Why is this happening?

NOTE: Id rather not change browsers, but figure out the problem.

A:Comcast website wont remember my password.....

Could be a problem with Cookies--either a bad one already stored or not allowing cookies to be stored. For the first possibility I think IE7 only allows removing all cookies (i.e., I would advise deleting any Comcast cookies, but I think that with IE 7 you have to remove all).

any ideas how to fix?


A:windows 7 wont remember wireless password

the brand and model of the dongle might help. Some come with connect softs and others don't. A profile in the software may need you to input the passphrase one time and save profile. If Windows is handling your wifi connections, when u click on the signal icon in the tray, and right click on the connection u use, select properties of connection, two tabs at top, Connection, checkbox for connect automatically. If this is checked and still will not auto connect, check that the passphrase is correctly entered in the connection properties.

W7 with IE9 will not prompt me to remember passwords like it used to. Have checked remember option under tools/internet options/content but no better. Any help?

A:IE9 won't remember passwords

The "remember" option has no effect on whether or not you get a "save password?" prompt in IE.

Internet Options > Content (tab).
In the ?Autocomplete? section, click on "Settings".
In the dialog box, tick the check-box for "User names & passwords on forms"
Under that, tick the check-box for "Ask me before saving passwords"
Click 'OK'.

Bear in mind that this feature of IE does not work on some websites that require log-in.

I don't use that feature anyway. Most websites have their own "remember me" option of their own which plants a cookie in your "Cookies" folder and is much more reliable.

I see that you have a HJT log properly posted, here, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

I cannot get Vista to remember passwords from one session to another. As well, I cannot connect to MSN Messenger as it will not recognize my login or password. Any suggestions?

A:How do you get Vista to remember passwords

Hi Jerry,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

If you mean for a web site, then you will need to have cookies enabled or enabled "Per Site". It should remember the password for next time as long as you do not delete the cookie for that that site. You can see more on how to do this here.


For MSN Messenger, you will need to have Allow automatic sign in when connected to the internet in Tools checked, Options, General tab. On the main Messenger window, you will also need to have Remember my password, Remember me, and Sign me in automatically checked.

Hope this helps,

I have used FF for past couple years and have no installed it.

One thing I liked is autocomplete (think that's what it is called) when I need to login somewhere, ie forum.
It won't show my username or password, but when I type the first letter or number, it will drop down if I want to select that username.
ie. If I type in "d" in the username, a drop down of doogie88 will show up, and if I click it, it will fill in the username and password.
But I don't want it to automatically log me in.

I inadvertently deleted some files and folders in my user directory when attempting to clean up some temp files. I think that I restored all the deleted files, but I had to reinstall my smart-ups software and replace all the application icons on the quick launch and in the start menu.

The only issue I have left to resolve at this point is IE11 remembering website passwords. When I login to a website such as the Seven Forums, when I click in the user name box, my user name will appear, but when I click in the password box, the password doesn't appear as it used to. Now I have to manually retype the password each time I login. I do get the pop-up bar at the bottom of the page that asks if I want IE11 to remember the password each time, but for some reason the remembered password isn't there the next time I attempt a login.

Is there a fix for this issue?


A:IE11 doesn't remember passwords

I resolved this issue by completing a repair install of Win 7.

Read other 1 answers

I'm wondering who can answer this.

I.E. 11 will not remember passwords even though the option is turned on.  This happens only on a few Windows 10 computers with I.E. 11 (but not all win 10 computers in our domain though).
I've verified that this happens to multiple accounts on the same computer.
I've also went into tools->internet options->content->autocomplete and ensured that the options are turned on.
I've also uninstalled and re-installed IE, but the issue still persists.
I'm starting to think that there's a corrupt file or registry entry somewhere that may be causing issues, or it's some kind of security permissions issue that's preventing windows from writing to certain files or registry entries.
Does anyone have any ideas?
