    Firefox not remembering....

    Hey all - got a Firefox question. I have had this for a bit now and it's getting old. Firefox is not remembering my log in name for any website.
    Like if I leave CF for 2 mins and come back and doesn't remember me.
    IE still works fine, just don't like IE any ideas what setting may be messed up?

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    What version are you running - and do you have any of the privacy options enabled beyond the defaults?

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    It is probably clearing all history on close. This is a common setting in firefox.

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Have the most current version.
    It will forget even if I don't close. Like if I go to another website and comeback it doesn't remember.
    I think all the privacy options are default, at least I don't remember chaning any of them

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Does this happen for other sites?

    Go to tools -> Options -> saved passwords

    Tell Firefox to show your passwords - do you have the wrong one or a blank one for CF?

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Yeah, happens on everysite the requires a login.
    It's not that it gets a password wrong, when I use the box 'remember me' it doesn't.

    PS it has all my passwords correct

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Did your Firefox suffer any head trauma recently? It could be some form of amnesia.

    That would seem to make the most since to me so far.

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Nothing new there.
    I guess I'll have to do the command to show ALL config options and compare it to my laptop which is working fine..... just really don't want to look through all of those

    You could just try uninstalling/reinstalling that should clear your settings and reset them to the default. I don't know which would be faster, but my solution would be easier. And if I remember correctly the install doesn't take too long.

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Well I was trying to be the big time computer nerd and solve the problem.

    I have given up and uninstalled Firefox and AVG.
    Just reinstalled them both - I guess I'll find out in a few moments if it will now remember my username or not.......

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    I had something similar happen to me a couple weeks ago. I think I ended up finding that I had a spyware toolbar installed that was causing the issue.

    Re: Firefox not remembering....

    Thanks for all the ideas guys. After a reinstall it looks like everything is now back to normal.

    Still a bit mad I never really found out what did it, but oh well.
