    i use mozilla mainly sometimes IE6. But its both browsers that wont save passwords. Some of the sites I go to like this one it will save my password. But yahoo it wont. MSN will though. Its kind of annoying to retype your info 20 times a day just to check email.

    Anyone have a solution???
    thanks.

    make sure cookies are enabled for the sites you are trying to save passwords at

    in IE6, go to Tools | Internet Options | Security Tab | Trusted Sites | Sites | and add the sites to the list

    Firewall won't affect this and neither will trusted sites. Some sites, like Yahoo, will set a time stamp on the cookie, telling it when it is no longer effective.

    We could do that here, but that would be annoying.
