how do i get IE9 to save passwords?

Hello all. I am using IE9 as backup. When i go to say my email site, and type in the user and password IE goes to the site so quick that i cannot click YES to saveing the password. I typed the wrong password in the first time and whern i tried it again with the correct one IE jumps so quick i cannot move the mouse quick enough to click YES before the option dissapears.

Any options to slow it down, or manualy get IE to save the passwords?


PS sorry for bad spelling, evidently IE has no spell ck!

Don't know of this will help but you could give it a try.

Go to Control Panel > Internet Options.
Click on Content tab.
Click on AutoComplete Settings button.
Check mark User names and passwords on forms option.

You may have to click the Delete AutoComplete history... button to "erase" previously stored passwords and user names to give yourself a clean slate to start over.

OK marsmiari i tried your suggestion, but that did not work for me for some reason. I ended up resetting IE, which cleared all the passwords anyways, so I can start from scratch with them now, thanks!!
