Save password after checkbox banner disappears?

  • The offer to save a password sometimes disappears before there's a chance to click the button. Is there a way to add a pw after the 1st chance has passed? It's probably something obvious. 🙄
    In Settings, there's no option for adding pw in Manage passwords.

    Examples (optional) :
    Sometimes when I don't visit a site very often, I can't remember the right alias or password that wasn't saved. I make a guess & the offer to remember password pops up. Since I was guessing, I don't want to save until I see whether it works or not. When I get the info straightened out, the offer to save pw doesn't come up again.

    The Save pw banner is subtle & appears at top of page, It doesn't catch my attention when I'm focused login boxes lower down on the page. Sometimes just I space out when the offer comes up & it disappears before I get a chance to click Yes. (I wish it stayed up a few seconds longer.)

    Anyway, I'm hoping there's a way to add the missing passowrds

    There should be a "Manage Saved Passwords" option in the settings.
    Look there and see if the address is listed.
    If it is, delete it, and then when you visit the address again you should be re-prompted to save the login details.

    Great idea for saving login info when changing the password or alias ☺
    Now, if only we could add a pw that didn't get saved when the option banner disappeared... Maybe there's a security issue I haven't thought about.

  • You didn't try it yet, obviously. If you didn't select "Never" then it will ask again the next time you login. If you did select "Never", that will be in the password manager and you can delete it so that it will ask after you try again.

    Thanks... would not have thought of that one
