good luck never has worked right. you can load up your computer with stuff do this and size your pix then your computer will be what wont work, just the way it is. this is the only site I use that is that is like this.!!!!!!!!!!charley
Every browser I've used will allow you to save password and login info. Go t your browser settings and find the place to check the box. I never do though. Browsers are just about the least secure thing running on your computer.
Ok thanks, I seem to recall that I was able to do it a few years ago, but have not been on much. Till now!
I agree with Danial...I never store user I.D.'s nor passwords on the browser. Too easy for the hackers to get 'em.
This subject has always been a royale pain For
sites I belong to. Every time I have PC problems
I have to go through all this user password stuff.
This PC is one week old unfriendly- I know my info and
most sites I cant get in any more. click I forgot
my password round and round i go. I liked Old
Machinery site cant get back in no matter what
no way as if I got thrown out. click remember me
thats useless. One hour just to get in my own
email??? My former PC I understood; it would auto
fill user/pass word. This new junk doesn't even
have a start menu. Atleast four hrs just to install my printer and where is the destop icon?
cant find it, not in setting not in my computor.
The plan I am to have my PC fixed throw this in
the dumpster. I know people are protecting them
selfs with crooks but in my case I got nothing to
protect just don't steal my cat. Joke if they steal my identity all they will get is a shoe box
Having your computer store passwords and usernames is really handy for the guy who steals your computer some night and then goes thru your bookmarks and clicks on your banking website. He'll probably phone you from an airport as he catches his vacation flight to say thanks after he's transferred all your money out to his account! (a fool and his money)
I have seven computers in my house and only this one is hooked to the net. On this computer I have
the MTFCA site, Ancestry.com and Model T Haven.
Everything I wish to keep at these three cites,
I download and do a print out and manually put it
the other appropriate computer.
Its been 47 years since I began my family research, and since computers came into fashion, I have had three computers crash and only because I had paper printouts, kept me from quitting.
Now I back up every thing on CD, secure in the knowledge that my research is protected.
One of the computers is a gateway 2000 with FREEFALL on it. Anybody need an antique ?
I'm like Daniel. I don't check the box to store my password and login info.
As much computer information is stolen these days I don't trust 'the internet'.
I don't use Pay Pal either but that's another story.
You have to remember that people use the internet and they aren't all honest.
Hi guys, that is what I was talking about, I did check the save user name and password box but I still have to enter them every time I post, was wondering if anyone knew how to fix it, I don't keep any sensitive material on my computer so if someone should steal it, they will bore themselves to death which is my way of paying them back for stealing it, I know it's cruel but, I've been known to be warped that way!
The password saving feature has always been problematic on the Internet Explorer browser. I don't believe that whatever you do to it, you will be able to get it to work properly.
Google's Chrome was somewhat better but still occasionally would forget passwords.
I now use a browser called "Pale Moon". It is faster (for me) than either Chrome or IE and has never forgot a password yet. Google "Pale Moon", download and install ... easy!
So there ya go!
PS just below what I'm typing now are my Username: and Password: boxes - already neatly filled in by Pale Moon.
