I use AOL email service. Is there a way that I can have the login page save my username only, but not my password? I would like to type my password into the password box by myself. This is a Windows computer. IE, Firefox or Chrome would be fine.

It's either all or nothing with the built in password saving options in the browsers.. you can use lastpass (3rd party password saver) and have it prompt for your lastpass password for certain sites.

Put a deliberately incorrect password into the password box and 'update stored password', when you go to the page it will fill in the boxes and you can overtype the password

The user did not want to delete the wrong password every time they log on (or overtype the password). So I just left it without saving either the username or password.
