Firefox password Manager will not remember PayPal number


Although I successfully set a master password and it worked with google's site I am having trouble with paypal as I use a quite intense password and it just doesn't even pick it up??? Any ideas would be appreciated.

I think this is the reason:

Quote:
Please remember that modifications to core files like are done at your own risk - there's a reason the Mozilla development team has structured and compressed these files as they have, and re-enabling the auto-saving of passwords on certain sites could pose a security threat.
from a site I found, but, it seems to be possible, info can be found there too...

Luck

Thor
(BTW - I never allow any passwords to be remembered on my PC, just to avoid loss of a password. But, that's just me)

Thanks for the tip

I use different grade passwords for everything and never duplicate but roboform helps a lot. Don't buy in to the cloud version as that has not been vetted properly. Have a nice holiday season and thanks for the tip.

OOps forgot somthing

For some reason the new version of mint 14 on my netbook was not allowing me to put a master password in the roboform free linux that was the issue. I'm set up pretty dam good and happy so I shouldn't even mentioned a glitch in a new release as I'm too damn old and this business has made me lots of $$ and friends for life and for that I am grateful.I think the robo cloud is polluted and only the real full solo program is of value but they want to make it into a yearly thing. Shame on them.
Once again Happy Holidays
