IE save password checkbox grayed out

August 26, 2011 at 10:28:09
Specs: Windows XP
Both my computers when I connect to my gameserver the popup comes up to put in name and password. The checkbox is grayed out so I can not save password. How do I fix this so I do not have to put name and password in every time?

Both XP and Vista

I had done a search and checked the settings suggested for individuals with the same problem. Did not solve the problem. All the regular in web page passwords will save. Only the pop up type of
User Name:
Password:

Has the checkbox grayed out.

Is this possibly part of the problem? A security setting somewhere that I missed?

I tried Palemoon out of curiosity but was getting black line graphical glitches on menus. Think I am going to switch to Firefox as my default browser. Firefox seems faster than IE and remembers the name and password. All the plugin options are nice too.

Still need to find a way for Firefox to simply open the webpages instead of having to hit OK on the password box each time. Also having some problems with my password manager compatibility and Firefox.

Bothers me that I can not find a solution to IE having the password check box grayed out. I like to reach the solution stage anytime I run into a problem.

"Still need to find a way for Firefox to simply open the webpages instead of having to hit OK on the password box each time"
Something is deleting the cookie, or if you are using Lastpass & probably others, it has security protection & you have to Ok it every time.

"Also having some problems with my password manager compatibility and Firefox"
I don't use any myself, I would try another manager.
