Naughty Chrome - and my plan to fix it
Posted on 2011-02-15
Chrome is very nice, but there is one bug which is driving me nuts.
Apparently if you tell Chrome not to remember passwords for a site, you can never get it to remember passwords for that site. I have seen several discussions about this and it seems relatively common. As in my case, it was not intentionally that this happened to me.
In any case, there are several workarounds posted as well, but they do not work for me. The passwords seem to be stored, but they are forever blank and useless for a couple of sites.
Here is my plan: I will uninstall Chrome and re-install it, and thus recover the ability to access saved passwords. I am on a Mac, so there is not an actual uninstall function. Here is what i have gleaned that I need to do:
1. Trash the Chrome application.
2. Also trash user/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome
3. Also trash user/Libarry/Caches/Google/Chrome
4. Re-install Chrome
5. Re-install 1Password
6. Re-install Xmarks
Points for reassurance that I am going down the correct path, or improvements to the plan.
