    OS XP HOME. Just want to know why my atuocomplete funtion does not work on some sites, as they have in the past. Autocomplete is enabled too, I checked. Thanks, B-72.

    I never use Autocomplete because your usernames and passwords are then stored on your computer. With simple programs, some people can find these passwords very easily, and so can some Trojans and other malware. It's a feature I would abolish. I prefer entering my informations each time I visit a site.

    Now, if you must use it, check if you don't have some program maybe preventing this feature from working on some sites, like some firewalls, or cookie control programs.
