    Hey guys,

    With Safari 6 when you enter in your user name and password it usually prompts with options to remember or not remember the your account info. There are a few sites that I originally didn't want to have saved forever so I denied the prompt and selected the never ask me again option.
    Is there a way to undo this to re-enable the option to save my login info?

    Thanks

    Yes.... go to Safari preferences (command-comma) and under the Passwords tab remove the site you want to reset. Then revisit the site and tell it to save this time.

    Thanks for the reply, I had thought of that already.
    It shows all of the sites that I have saved info for, but there is no list of sites that I am denying.
    I also tried under the auto fill tab and clicking edit next to user names and passwords and all that does is bring me to the Passwords tab.

    Hmm... mine does. I have it set not to save the PW for my bank and in that screen all the other sites have the dots in place of the PW, but the bank says "Passwords Never Saved"

    Maybe try deleting the cookies for that site also?

    Oh that's strange. Ya it only shows the sites that I have saved passwords for. I deleted all the other ones to make sure, and deleted all the cookies, still nothing.
    Unless there is something in the Library that I need to edit to make it work, but that seems silly that I'd need to go that far for something like this.
