How do I get Firefox to autofill Hotmail password?
Posted on 2011-04-20
My problem started with trying to find a way to get Firefox to
autofill usernames and passwords. Sometimes Firefox does
and sometimes it only half does and sometimes it doesn't at all.
I zeroed in on Hotmail, trying to simply get the password to
autofill in the Log In of my Hotmail Sign In page. Username
fills in automatically just fine, with a little prompt by simply
starting typing my username, then a drop down box appears,
then I simply click on the name in the drop down box and it
fills in. But the password will not fill in.
Research and people's tips led me to Greasemonkey,
Greasefire, and Firebug where I learned that webpages can
be altered to suit ones tastes.
In the process, there can be a fix for my Hotmail problem as
well. Or so I'm told.
Thus far, I have been unable to much understand Greasemonkey,
or the others, nor have I been able to make much progress
toward solving my Hotmail problem of getting the password to
fill in automatically. Or where I can ultimately take Greasemonkey
to suit my needs!
Is there anyone who can direct me in what I should do next?
I am in unknown territory.
