It is your connection that should remember it, not your
browser, which is just a winsock client.  Double click
my computer, select dial up networking, select the icon for
your ISP, double click it and you will get the connection box,
for your name, password, and a box that you can check to save
password.  As soon as it successfully connects, it will save the
password

you'll need w95 cd rom or *.cab files:

CONTROL PANEL
NETWORK
if you don't have "Client for Microsoft Networks,"
click ADD
CLIENT
click ADD
select MICROSOFT from the list of manufacturers
click OK
make sure CLIENT FOR MICROSOFT NETWORKS appears under PRIMARY NETWORK LOGON
go to IDENTIFICATION tab,
under COMPUTER NAME, enter your log in name for your ISP
click OK
restart when prompted
when windows restarts, if you are prompted for windows log on password, just put your ISP username in the top box, nothing in pwd box, click OK
put nothing in either box when it asks you to confirm,
CLICK OK
if that doesn't work, do a FIND for *.pwl.  rename all files found to the extension .xxx instead of .pwl

click the START button,
shutdown,
close all programs and log on as a different user,
type something else when prompted, nothing in pwd boxes as above,
then SAVE PWD should be available in the dialup networking connect to screen.

that screen appears when you go into dialup networking inside my computer, then double click the connection that is configured to operate with your browser.  click save pwd, and connect, then open your browser.  the next time you click THE INTERNET icon, if that's how you normally connect,

it will all be tied together.
