    Hi all

    Since the last software update I have to enter my password all the time for Facebook, Twitter etc. I was wondering if anyone know how to change the settings so I don't have to do this on a daily bases & can go back to how it used to be??

    Yes I do click the box to remember the password

    You could try creating a new plist file for your browser. Since this is in the Basics forum...

    Go to Users>YourUserName>Library>Preferences and find your browser's plist file. (Need more help? What browser are you using?) Drag it out onto your Desktop.

    Restart your browser. (Quit if it's open.)

    Save your passwords (remember) again and see if it sticks. If it does, trash the plist file on your Desktop. If not, you might want to put that file back in the Prefs folder and overwrite the new one that was created. And, in that case, the next step would be to access the sites under a different User Account.
