Unsetting "never remember password" in Safari

Hi all,

At some point, I must have accidentally selected "never remember" for the password for my ISP's webmail server, and I now want to reverse that decision.

But I cannot find anywhere in the Safari preference files where that information is stored. Does anyone know where Safari keeps this info?

Thanks,
Scott

Doooooghhh...

Didn't even think that it would be there...

But anyway, looked there, and that site is not listed. The site is http://webmail.rochester.rr.com. Does anyone have any idea why Safari wouldn't catch this sight for password memory (Camino remembers it just fine).

Yes, I've had that preference on since the beginning. Safari remembers all of my other passwords, but just not that one (which is why I thought I must have told it not to at some point).

Try the preference for autofill, then edit user names and passwords. Delete the site that isn't accepting the autofill, then return to the site. It should then prompt you as to whether or not you want to remember.

I just had it delete ALL my saved password settings in the Auto Fill preferences, but still no request for that particular server.

Question

At this point, I have to believe it's something with that particular site. There are no cookies on my system from that server, but there is this strange "cookie" field in the form. I'm inclined to create that I'll host on my local system that will be a proxy to the real opening page.

I just had this problem. It's likely that you accidently hit the "Never Remember This Site" button when Safari asks: remember this site, yes, just this once, never.

Those passwords are not stored in Safari's autofill. Much safer, they are stored in your keychain. There will be a web form password stored there with the account "(never remember password)" appended to it. Delete this password item, and things will return to normal.

To those still looking for an answer, this is how I did it.

open keychain access, then press [+]. paste the url of the login page, then your account name, then your password. when you navigate to the site, just press always allow.

Using Autofill has been shown to let "nasty" web sites mine your information. Go to the demo site http://ha.ckers.org/weird/safari_autofill.html, click on Start and watch.

If you're using Safari 5 you can use an Extension titled LastPass to remember all of your usernames and passwords and log you in automatically on those sites you'd like.

You're sure you have Autofill selected for Safari?

If you clicked “Never for this Website” the last time you logged in to this webpage, remove the “never saved” designation.
Choose Safari > Preferences and click AutoFill.
Click the Edit button next to “User names and passwords.”
In the list of user names, find the website for which you want to save a password. The words “Passwords Never Saved” appear next to the website.
Select the website and click Remove.
Click Done.
