Passwords and stuff..

specifically the password manager..

hey, you know when you put the wrong name into the password box on IE8, it keeps on showing as an optional identity when you return..?

and you end up with loads of incorrect identities in the drop-down box..??

- well, just hover your cursor over the invalid entry and press the "Delete" key
- this removes the incorrect identity from the listing..

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...
