Weird thing, it's happened to me a few times before. When I go to a few of my usual sites that have usernames/passwords, Safari always remembers them. However, I went on today and the usernames/passwords didn't pop up.

Now when I click on preferences and go to autofill, I can see that it has all of my information stored... it just will not load it into the page for me.

I've also tried, Edit > Autofill Form.

Still nothing. Any ideas?

Clean it out.

Safari Menu > Reset Safari...

(By the way, Safari is an Application, not part of the Mac OS.)

That's a stupid idea because that will remove everything. It still has all my info saved, but it will not populate it. There's no fix to this?

No.... you can uncheck the items you don't want to remove!

Also, maybe try dragging com.apple.safari.plist to the dektop, quitting and restarting Safari.
