    Thanks for all the responses. Now I gotta get busy and do some research.

    Firefox works most of the time. But there are some that just won't save I think it's in the code.

    I do have a password program I've used for years but it's not automatic. I'm looking for something that is. What I usually run into is a site like my bank that I've used for so long with Firefox I just don't remember the password. Then they update the site and the page is no longer the same so Firefox does not recognize it.

    The password requirements now are getting pretty ridiculous too. I keep getting screens like "Sorry, passwords must have at least 1 number, 1 uppercase and 1 lowercase character and be at least 8 characters long".

    Thanks again,

    Holdcard

    Roboform looks for keywords on the page and gives you the opportunity to have it input the username and password. If there key words are not there it is a simple click to have it fill the blanks. It also has a password generator. It works with IE and Firefox.

    And for those people who keep passwords in a simple file, you should really invest in some crypto software. Encrypt the text file you use to save your info, then at least you are down to one password to remember.
    I did not know that, cool.

    1password for the mac and iPhone users on the board...
    Roboform for the windows users...

    Those be the best of the best IMHO. I use 1password everyday, all day to submit passwords for my testing of web applications.

    Actually, there's nothing that a page designer can put in a web page to make a browser do anything. I know what you mean about Firefox not saving some passwords, though, and I am not sure how that works. It may have something to do with Firefox honoring privacy policies, but I am not sure. It may also have to do with the ID given to the form entries (that is, if it isn't called something obvious like "name" and "password", Firefox may not treat it as such). It is a bit frustrating; for me, though, it's a pretty small number of sites, at least...

    I have used KeePass for several years:
    - password storage
    - password generator
    - allows you to copy and paste username and password then removes it from clipboard after the paste
    - FREE

    Easy.

    Select a place you remember well, and the year you were there.

    example: Iraq1991

    I used to do things like that, but for several years now I've tried to use a different password for each site. That way if a site gets hacked the password they stole will only affect that site.

    I've mixed my passwords up since the beginning, almost random and many times I'll use spaces, or other uncommon characters like _#$!%&* to throw off the brute force programs. Eventually they'll stumble across it but I want them to have to work on it.

    I've actually been locked out of a few accounts before because someone was trying to hack in on my user name and password.

    Thanks again for all the ideas and references.
