Windows 7: IE8 and website Passwords

IE8 and website Passwords

Well here's the skinny. Almost all the passwords that I save for websites are working properly, there is only one site that is not. The strange thing is, that it doesn't work regardless of what browser I use. I have tried IE8, FF, and Chrome.
I thought it might be part of the new credentials manager, but I could not find out how to use it to save passwords for the particular site that I visit most often.
I have tried to clear all my cookies and other saved info, I have even added that website to always except cookies.
I am at a complete loss.
So far this is the only real block that is keeping me from continuig to use Win7 and give it a real spin.
I know it sounds petty, headed back to Vista just because of one website, but since this is one that I need to view quite often and I can't, well that's a big problem.

Any ideas out there would be greatly appreciated.

I gave this a shot, and for some reason it does not work either. IE8 and FF and even Chrome, will work for saving passwords for every other site that I have visisted. Even FF with the Sxipper addon works for other sites, nice addon btw.
However, for some reason, this one particular site is the only one giving me problems. I need this site because it is my guild site for WoW and I need to see forum posts, I really hate having to just switch back to another OS just to read a bloody website.

Anyone else have any ideas?
Bout ready to lose my mind on this one....

Well I think I have it narrowed down to one thing in particular. Cookies.
For some reason there is a setting in Windows 7, I think, that is not allowing the saving of cookies for this one site. It's gotta be a Win7 feature since all the other browsers don't work as well.

Still looking for help on this.
Thanks bunches.

I want to remove a username and password for a website and enter a new one. I only want to do this for one website not all. How can I do this in IE 7 and 8? Thanks.

@sbwsfo-Well you need to consider a few things.
1. Did you tell IE not to offer to save any more passwords that particular website? If yes, then it will continue to keep the one you had, until you delete temp files, and cookies and all passwords saved. That is one thing I like about FF, you remove individual passwords for a single websites.
If you did not tell IE not to offer to save any other passwords for that single site, then when it comes up again, and it auto fills, simply remove what it auto fills, then log in, at time IE should prompt you that you offering a new or different password than what it has saved for you. It will ask you if you want to change to the new password you just entered.
@ the OP, just to narrow the issue to whether it is in fact a w7 issue, can you give the link to the site, and have one of us see if we can log on. It seems like a site we can create our own account for, true?

Zay, this is for a comcast login. I typed in incorrect names and passwords and want to correct it and use just that one. I don't know if anyone can help me.

Unless you told IE not to offer to save any more passwords, it should prompt you that the information you changed to is not what is currently saved, and let you save the new information. Other than that, you will have to clear all passowords, cookies, IE temp files, and start over.......Got to love FF

Thanks Zay. I will have to look at FF. I am not familiar with it but it sounds a heck of a lot easier. Thanks again.
