    After upgrading to Windows 7 64bit after Vista Home Premium 32bit, every single time I visit a site, forum etc...where I have to type in my Username and Password, unfortunately Windows 7 OS does not hold in memory the Username, at least, which in many sites is my e-mail (quite long) and so I have to retype it again any single time! It is very frustrating and time consuming! I haven't touched anything in IE8 or Mozilla settings in Internet Options! It should keep the username as Vista & XP did!
    Is any fix of this bug? I just installed Windows 7 and my computer is brand new!
    Thank you in advance!

    For Mozilla Firefox:

    Username and password not remembered

    Password Manager settings

    Firefox will remember passwords by default. You may have disabled this feature, or told Firefox to never remember passwords for a particular site.

    1. At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, click on theToolsFirefoxEdit menu, and select
      Options...Preferences... .​
    2. Select the Security panel.
    3. If it isn't already check marked, check Remember passwords for sites.
    4. To the right of Remember passwords for sites, click the Exceptions... button .
    5. Make sure that the site you're trying to log in to isn't in the list.
      • If it is, select the entry and click Remove.
    6. Click Close .​
    7. Click OK to close the Options window​

    Now that you've configured Firefox to remember passwords, try logging in to the site again.


    For IE8:

    Tools > internet options > Advanced > Reset - a chance it'll help.


    For both FF and IE8 x32, try RoboForm Password Manager Supported Browsers
