    How do I stop
    I've a new mac but not my first. I've recently noticed within 10.8.3 that when I log into a web site I repeatedly receive a message on whether or not I wish to save this password i.e.

    Never for this Website; Not Now; Yes

    Can you good folks advise me please on how to stop this message? I'm finding it rather irritating. If I wish to carry out this request I now know where to go.

    Thank you for any help and advice.

    I'm very sorry I should have thought of that.

    I'm using Safari v6.0.3. Hope this helps you

    Open Safari, click on "Preferences", click on the "Autofill" tab. Remove the check from the box that says "User names and passwords." That will stop Safari from asking.

    chscag. Thank you so very much for your advice. Much appreciated I can assure you. Perhaps I can now stick some hair back as I hadn't a clue. Just wish I was up to the knowledge you guys have.

    I do have something else to ask if you have the time?

    Here goes. I'm trying to make things easy for myself you understand.

    Is there any way I can assign keys that would be enable me to 'place my email addr.' without having to type it in every single time? I think this may enter into the realms of a mac script but would it be difficult?

    Again. Advice would be precious to me. I haven't got a clue!!

    +1 on 1Password. I have mine set up so I can click a button on my multi-button mouse and it inputs my name and password and logs me in. (yeah, I'm lazy)

    Another option, if you don't have 1Password, is to use a macro program such as TypeIt4Me or Typinator or Text Expander. I couldn't do forums with mine.

    Ooohh, I need Apple to come out with more buttons on the trackpad now.

    Maybe a 4 finger tap so I don't have to click on the 1Password icon every time.

    I was asked in a PM how to do this so I thought I'd share.
    Most mouse software allows you to map mouse buttons to do different things.
    I have mapped a button on my Razor mouse to use the 1Password login command.
    (by the way, Murphy, in my PM, I was wrong. It's command\ not command/)
    I use USBOverdrive but like I said most software allows you to do this.
