I was recently using Firefox and came across another site that I couldn’t store my password for. I got a little frustrated and said to myself “there has to be a way to fix that”. So I then started to search Google for ways to force Firefox to remember my passwords on more sites.
I finally came across a bookmarklet that would remove the autocomplete=”off” from the form fields on the page. It worked on all of the sites that I wanted it to, my bank account, email accounts, etc…! It was so great that I thought I better share with you the 10 second process of setting this up (without needing to install an extension to do it).
- Bookmark this link: Password Saver. To bookmark the link just right-click on it and select “Bookmark This Link…”.
- The next time you find a site that won’t remember your password just click on the bookmark. It will then remove all instances of autocomplete=”off”.
- Type your username and password into the site and press submit.
- That’s all! You should now be prompted to let Firefox remember your password.
Unfortunately this does not work on every site, but it has worked on all that I have tried. The most popular sites that this is used for are Hotmail and Yahoo. This one definitely earns its place in my bookmark toolbar.
