I recently changed the password on one site which was on my managed

However I do want the new password to be remembered by SM, and now
when I log in at the site it never offers to remember the password.
I have set cookies to be accepted for the site, javascript is ON,
popups are permitted (in case SM would use that to ask me to save the
password). SM (I'm having this on two different machines, one running
2.0a3 and the other running 2.0 b1, both show the problem) never
offers to save my password. In preferences the option to save
passwords is ticked ON as well. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.
And Password-Manager/Passwords Never Saved, is not listing the site ? (I
just found that for me, it is denying, which is
surprising. I removed it from this passwords that will not be saved

No. But someone on this board mentioned a problem similar to what I
saw, and posted this link:
This site has a bookmarklet that I could use: it seems the web page
would suppress asking for a password after SM had saved one once. I
don't claim to understand what happened, but running the Remember
password bookmarklet enabled SM to pop the question again, and, once
remembered, the password is in my password list and is entered
automatically when the login box pops up. That's all I wanted, so I've
saved the bookmarklet for later reference.
Thanks for responding.
Many thanks for that link. Good to know "Remember Password" bookmarklet
works in SM-2.0a3 and 2.0 b1pre.
Just a note to-mention a pretty-important caveat, in that
"Remember-Password" only works on sites that use autocomplete="off" to
prevent your browser from remembering passwords. If the site uses
another method to break your browser's password manager, such as having
two password fields or submitting the form using JavaScript, this
bookmarklet won't help. Barry.

You're right, and the site itself makes that clear. Also, when you run the bookmarklet, it reports what it does. And I have not seen anyone even mentioning a work-around for that solution, so I guess when I find a site that protects its security in that way, I'll just have to live with it.
But this one was not so crucial, so I'm glad I found this.
