Safari browser not remembering username and password
I'm having problems with the browser not asking me to save my usernames and passwords. I have the "username and password" box checked in preferences and I got it to save one but no others. I cleared the cache, reset Safari, re-visited the site, signed in and did not get a prompt from Safari. I'm using 5.1.7.
Any help is appreciated.

I see suggestions (mostly Apple related of course), of deleting the keychain.plist and recreating your passwords list. It will be located at
I would instead rename it to something like keychain.plist.bak and if it does not work, you can rename it back.
I would save your login info if you don't remember them all

I usually don't suggest another program when users want to fix something, so I tried to offer a fix first, but in this case. Safari for Windows is no longer being supported, and is no longer secure.
The issue is that the final version that Windows users are stuck with–version 5.1.7–has a number of documented security vulnerabilities that are never going to get patched by Apple. According to Maximum PC, there are at least 121 known security holes listed in Apple’s own documentation. And as time goes by, it is extremely likely that the number of unpatched security holes will increase. Running an outdated browser is not good security practice, and running a browser that is EOL and has known vulnerabilities is just asking for trouble.
There are also much better browsers available, even before they stopped support. A Guy
