Windows 7: Passwords in IE9

Passwords in IE9

Hi...

How do I get IE9 to prompt to save username and passwords for different sites on a regular basis? The reason I mention "regular basis" is that it seems on some sites IE9 does prompt, but on others - particularly Gmail - I have not received such a prompt and I have to manually input my username and password. The only problem is that previously I had no problems with IE9 and the password thing in IE9. This is fresh install on a brand new machine.

Thanks.

PS: I have tried going into Internet Options (IE9), into the security tab and have the relevant options checked.

Try Internet Options -> Content -> Auto Complete Settings -> check both password options near the bottom of the window.

Despite it all, IE9 simply won't react to some websites when you try to log in, one example being deviantART. Luckily, most websites offer you a "remember me" option which you can use instead.

This program should have been part of the os: IE PassView - Password Manager Program for Internet Explorer
It lets you view password data that has been stored by IE, and, more importantly, lets you selectively delete. Once a site's stored data is deleted, IE will ask you if you want to store it the next time you log in. I've used it in IE8 but I haven't updated to IE9 yet so I'm not sure it will work, but I expect it will.

Absolutely! Thanks for the heads up. I'll try it out.

Yeah, I have the same problem....seems kinda hit or miss on what sites it'll prompt to save. Most of mine are fine, but, of course, this forum, vista forums, and the 8 forums don't get the prompt.

I think this is realated to Windows Credentials.
I can save a username and pw to a website,but when i log off and log back on it doesnt remember it or it does remember it but the site wont let me login because it does not recongnize the credentials from Windows 7.

Do a full IE reset: Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset(include the removal of personal settings).

Isn't there a "Keep me logged in" option on the websites? I never used to like it, but since I'm always checking them, it's quite helpful.
