PlayBook Browser won't remember passwords to Websites

When logging in to websites, I enter my username and password and click the "remember password" box.  However, everytime I go back to the website I have to re-enter my information.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  Thanks.

Check the browser options (on its Privacy & Security tab). If you have 'private browsing' on, then the browser will forget anything you've done after you close it. Let me know if this did the trick.

Re: PlayBook Browser won't remember passwords to Websites

On the browser's options, could you please press clear all, on the privacy tab, then go to - say - your e-mail provider's web address (like gmail.com), connect to it, marking the save my password option (or similar), close the browser, return to it, and enter the website url again, please?

There isn't any option in the Playbook browser's username and password dialog to select 'Remember my Password' as there is in say IE on one's laptop. At least I'm not seeing it unless that itself gets activated by some other option.

Re: PlayBook Browser won't remember passwords to Websites

I have pressed clear all, made sure that cookies were turned on, privacy browsing was turned off, gone to gmail, marked the save my password option, closed the browser, opened the browser again, went back to gmail, and still nothing.

 

I realize that this is a request from back in June, but has anything at all been found out about it? Not being able to save my username and password is the only nagging problem for me on an otherwise fantastic device.

Has anyone solved this?  I am running Playbook 2.0, and have the issue still.

Re: PlayBook Browser won't remember passwords to Websites

This may become one of the main reasons for returning my new playbook. Retyping usernames and passwords everytime is distroying the efficiency I hoped to gain over using a laptop for some of the social media stuff.  Anyone know of a work around to this issue?

Did you establish the gmail account under "accounts"?
