    My Firefox browser isn't asking to remember the password to the site. Anyone else having this? I have to re-login every time.

    It's not asking or it's just not remembering?
    It works for me.

    mine doesnt ask for my pass here either
    it doesnt ask to remember all logins though
    perhaps it doesnt detect its a username/password

    doesnt bother me in the slightest though, simply tick the remember me box.
    i NEVER have to log in here, which is even less effort than the pass being remembered

    Yeah, I don't think it recognizes it as a username/password field. But sometimes it logs me out and I have to relogin for some reason.

    Ah, I thoguht he meant the remember me box isn't showing up/isn't working.
    That's what I use.

    Maybe it's because you, someone else, or a program on your computer are clearing cookies?

    That's probably what it is, heh, but I'm not used to login in at all, and I constantly clear cookies... Yeah , the box with the options, Not Now, Never for this Site, and Remember Me isn't showing up, and I don't have it as "Never for this Site"

    Elect to preserve the filesharingtalk.com cookie in whatever cleaning program you use.
    If your cookie cleaner doesn't offer the option, get another program.

    The field names need to be "username" or "nickname", and "password" (with field type password); there are probably some other variations of this.

    As standard, Vbulletin uses fields with the names "vb_login_username" and "vb_login_password" (the field type is correct as password), which is why Firefox (and presumably IE) does not recognise them.

    I don't know if this can be changed. If it can it would avoid the need to store passwords in permanent cookies, which is always a potential security risk for those using public computers.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    But then if it's a security risk to save password in a cookie it would be to just save the password period.
