Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 560

post #5591 of 7341
Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie to this forum and am a bit lost. Still trying to find my way around.

I have used Waterfox for a couple of years now and find it to be the best browser I have used. But I do have one issue that I can't seem to find mentioned anywhere by anyone else, so I'm wondering if I am missing something here. I'm also not the most savvy computer user either.

There seems to be no facility for Waterfox to remember user names and passwords to websites that I am a registered member of.

Can someone please point me in the right direction to find out about this, or tell me if Waterfox is built for this or not?


I'm running a custom built 64bit computer that was built in 2008. Quad core AMD processor (2.6GHz) with Vista as the operating system. She's an old girl, but still running smoothly.




Thanks,

Waterfox button in the upper left -> Options -> Options -> Security
Check the box for " Remember passwords for sites " if it is unchecked.

Thanks Screemer.

I can't do that. The option is there to remember passwords, but it is blanked or faded out so that I cannot click in the box to enable it. I cannot find out how to have this option enabled, so that I can tick the box. Sorry, I didn't mention that before.

Try this then, but don't blame me if you break your configuration. smile.gif
  1. In the address field, type about:config
  2. Acnowldedge that you will be careful. wink.gif
  3. At the top in the the config there is a search field. Enter this " signon.rememberSignons " without the hyphens " "
  4. Double click on " signon.rememberSignons " without the hyphens " ". Be sure it says exactly that and nothing else
  5. Now if you check where the checkbox is it should be ticked.
Good luck

Thanks Mate. I followed your instructions to the letter and it did not work. it is still faded out with no tick. I even restarted Waterfox to see if that would help, but not to be.


Very strange indeed. Any other suggestions?

Glad to be of help, even if I offered no solution yet. smile.gif In your options, check under privacy if save history is set to " Never remember history " if it is, change it to custom or always save history and try again.
If you set it to custom, check that you don't have "Always use private browsing mode" ticked.

Screemer, you are a legend. smile.gif

That was the issue and all is well. I even have my username and password for this forum now remembered.

Thank you very much for the assistance!

Thread Starter 

Hey guys, sorry for the long delay! I present to you 27.0.1. Please let me know if you have any issues, otherwise if you don't this will be the build I distribute:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/waterfoxproj/files/experimental/Waterfox%2027.0.1%20Setup.exe/download

 

What I've improved:

  • Finally found how to have a dynamic user agent that shows both Firefox, Waterfox and the correct versions for OS, while also retaining the same user profile (that was always the issue, either had one or the other)!
  • Managed to reduce the size of Waterfox by 14% while keeping around the same performance for JS/WebGL!
  • All other improvements since FF26->27.0.1

 

If this is good, I'll upload and update everything tomorrow. Then I'll try and answer everyone's queries. I have updated the source code as well on CodePlex!
