    I just got this mac a few months ago. Often I let my freinds get on here and check email or whatever. The problem is that it always autofills or auto completes the login name and password. I don't want to set up more accounts on my mac for guests or anything. I do not want Mozilla or anything else to remember paswords and logins, at least untill after the browser has been closed. I messed with key chains that didn't seem to matter. I have it set right on Safari, but I don't us it. I went through ever single preference and I can't figure this out. Please help. I have had this computer for a year and really don't know how to use it. It's pretty depressing because I like it but I really makes me angry, so please help. I've had this prob for at least 4 months.:mad:

    That is a setting you must find and change somewhere in Mozilla. It's not an OS setting, so you can't change it for everything.

    It's been a while since I've used Mozilla, so I don't know exactly how or if you can do what you want. If you've tried to look everywhere in the Mozilla settings and the Mozilla documentation, then maybe you can look for plug-ins or extensions that do what you want?

    Dump Mozilla and use Firefox if you're averse to using Safari for whatever reason. Firefox allows you to not save and/or remove form information. Mozilla might, too (in fact, probably does)... but why do you use it?

    There is a recent version of Sea Monkey/Mozilla browser suite that you should be downloading instead of using an old one with security problems. It should have preferences like those found in the included screenshots.
