can someone help me keep my password logged in, sometimes it will work 2 or 3 times, or as Steve said type in the first letter that mite work once. windows 7 .charley p.s. worked this time with one click
The only one that keeps my password so I don't have to type in the first letter is Google Chrome, with just Google (what I use) I need to type the first letter in. I just do it that way and live with it.
Just a reminder, this is your computer keeping this info for auto log in, not the main server.
This is the way I use... there probably is another way.
I use google Chrome but I am certain the same applies on other browsers.
Clear the history under settings. Tick all the boxes and have it clear everything to "the Beginning of Time" It actually has that as an option
Then, close the browser, reopen it, and go to the MTFCA site.
When you post something and type in your username and password, it will pop up across the top of the screen... "Do you want to save the password" or words to that effect.
Say yes, and it will pre-fill in your log on credentials for this site only.. You will have to choose yes or no on other sites,
As a rule I don't say yes to bank sites etc...
Unfortunately, the downside of my method is that I have to fill in the form data again for the first time I go to a site, but if I think of how many sites I frequent, its not many and it hasn't been a problem for me.
Hopefully someone can chime in with an easier answer, and maybe I can learn something new too!
Hope this helps,
In my browser if you go to preferences/security there is a button that says saved passwords Just click on that add the web site and the password. I don't use it! I only like my passwords being stored in the computer I keep lodged between my ears. I run Linux/Firefox.
I think in your profile there is a check box for keeping yourself logged in. Check there first
I couldn't find any thing in my profile. this is the only site that wont work for me . charley
I do computer consulting for a living and have had a pretty wide experience with browsers.
There are probably 50 to 100 different browsers out there, but internet explorer, chrome and firefox have about 99% of the market.
I was a devoted i.e. user untill about a year ago when I got tired of the many problems including the password remembering problem you mention.
Finally wound up with a browser called "Pale Moon". Before you panic thinking its some 3rd world concoction, know that Pale Moon is just Firefox compiled especially for Windows. Its faster, much more trouble free and has never forgotten a password yet (passwords are encrypted).
The only thing that is a little different than i.e. is that pale Moon uses "Bookmarks" instead of "favorites" ..... they are the same thing though.
Suggest you give it a try (you can always go back to whatever you were using with no problem). I have put many customers on it and they all love it.
There are two versions, one for 32 bit machines and one for 64 bit machines. The 32 bit version will run on any machine. If you have a 64 bit machine, the 64 bit version will run even faster. Neither will run on an apple device or android.
No ads, no extra programs installed on your machine. Google "pale moon" or "pale moon 64".
BTW there is an add on for pale moon called "adblock plus" . Haven't seen an advertisement since I installed it.
I will try to get my son-in-law to check it out for me, he works for jack hennery, but cant teach me any thing he just dose it.charley
