Basically, for login pages (such as facebook) my mac used to auto complete my login name, much like it auto completes a url i have previously visited when i go to type it in. It started doing this spontaneously a couple of days ago. How do i turn it back on? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I blindly assume you use Safari 4 or 5 on Mac OS X 10.6.

If that is the case, have a look at Safari > Preferences > AutoFill and see what is selected and what is not.

yes its safari 5. the autofill preferences you recommended only deals with filling in passwords automatically, it has nothing to do with automatically completing usernames. anyone else?
