Not saving log in password Edge
« on: January 17, 2020, 01:03:22 PM »
Hi all

I downloaded Edge today I have saved my log in information on several web sites.
On this site it will not save password etc.
Saves okay in Firefox.

Cheers Pete

That is strange.  I generally use Pale Moon on the forums due to the extensions that I use throughout the day.  However, I launched Edge and first went to edge://settings/passwords and confirmed that both "Offer to save passwords" and "Sign in automatically" were set to on.  There were no sites/passwords listed since I don't generally use Edge on this device but rather use Edge Dev on my other PC.  After logging in, I closed Edge and then launched it again.  I was automatically logged in.

Hello Corrine

Thank you for your reply.

 I didn't explain myself correctly the problem I have. (opps sorry)
When I put my user name and password in, then I click Log In
I get no option at all to save my log in information.

When I logged into another forum, I had a pop up asking to save password etc.

Cheers

You won't get a pop-up because the SMF Forum software password save option is different.  After you type your usename and password, in the next box click the arrow and select "forever".

I think it is a Microsoft Edge Settings issue.

If you go to Settings, by clicking the three dots on the right upper corner at Edge, first make sure that in the Section Privacy and Security the cookies are not disabled (attachment 1). Then, select Choose what to clear and make sure the option Always clear this when I close the browser is not enabled (attachment 2). Of course, in the Section Passwords and Autofill, the option Save passwords has to be enabled. You will be asked by Edge if you want to save the password the first time you fill in your details.

Hi DR M
 Thank You for your assistance very much appreciated. :)
My settings  seem to be different to your screen shots.
I have to save passwords activated.
For some reason it is only this forum that doesn't offer for me to save log in information.

By the way Edge just had a update to version    79.0.309.68 (Official build) (64-bit)

Bad cookie?  Try deleting the one saved and see if you are prompted to save a new one next time you log on.

Downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

Same problem will not save log in details.

  Edge and Chrome have in common they are chromium based.
