Default Password Tweak - Firefox

No replies needed, just a little goodie for Firefox users that enables Passwords to be saved by removing "Autocomplete = off" from the form fields on the page.

Just hit http://cybernetnews.com/tweak-firefo...-an-extension/, save it as a Bookmark and click "Password Saver" highlighted in item 1. You only need to do this ONCE, it will last forever unless revoked.

Next time you have to enter your name and password for a site, press "Submit" and Firefox will prompt you in a header bar to have your data remembered.

Subsequent visits, enter the first digit of your name in the box, click full name in the drop down tab and no need enter password (you may have to clear the field and click), it is entered automatically.

Firefox check - Tools>Options>Security>Saved Passwords>Show Passwords. Check "Remember Passwords for Sites" box.

I have no idea about other browsers and of course there are alternative password saver downloads on the net.
