Why doesn't "Remember me" remember my passwords?

    Before your latest outlook change, the “Remember me” box was working: I didn’t have to write the password every time I logged out from an account and logged in with another,
    Now “Remember me” doesn’t remember ANY password, so I have to write’em down every time. Which is pretty absurd.
    I’m on Firefox 16.0.2, cleand cache, cookies etc.

    The blog I need help with is lacheteaux.wordpress.com.



    I’m on Firefox 16.0.2, cleand cache, cookies etc.

    That’s an outdated browser version. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading.



    Just after I had posted here, my Firefox updated to 17.0.1.
    But “Remember me” still doesn’t remember passwords.


    I have just the same problems (FF 17.0.1).



    So obviously it’s not the browser, it’s WordPress.



    I tried from another computer: still it won’t remember.



    Hey, WordPress, we need an answer from you… Your gadget doesn’t work…



    Hi gain,
    Please provide us some details about your computing environment.

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:


    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.


    Hi all! And Happy Xmas! :-)

    I’ve done just some tests, but no way …
    I mean:
    1) clearing my browser’s cache
    2) third-party cookies enabled
    3) all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled (started in “safe mode”)
    4) enabling HTTPS
    still it doesn’t remember my password.

    Here you can see some screenshots:
    (a) – “Remember me” doesn’t work

    (b) – “Remember me” doesn’t work (simply refreshing – twice – the log-in box changes position)

    (c) – “Remember me” WORKS!

    So, if I arrive into WordPress by “http://wordpress.com/”, it doesn’t remember my password, on the other hand, if I use “http://en.wordpress.com/wp-login.php”, I can have my password!

    The configuration is the same in the tree situations.

    My browser is FF v 17.0.1 and, like O.S., I use Windows 7 Professional or Windows Vista Business.

    I hope this could be useful.




    Same here. Tried almost everything you suggested, nothing worked.
    I’m on Firefox 17.0.1 and XP Professional, Version 5.1, SP 3; at work my computer has Windows 7.
    (I said “almost everything” because i didn’t clear the cache: if I do, I’ll have to manually write the username and the password for each site (some of them I may not even remember) etc., so I’d rather give up using WordPress than spending hours and hours trying to find and write usernames, passwords etc. Besides, provinceditalia is in the same situation and it didn’t help him either.)
    Thank you and let’s all have a great year!
