I like to have Keychain store my internet usernames and passwords, however it doesn't seem to "kick in" all of the time.

Some websites are stored in Keychain and I can get right in when Safari hits the site.

Others, I still have to enter all of my info. How do I get Keychain to store those passwords?

Thanks! - Jeremy

farmcock has a little shameless behaviour in the past

that's a good question. I thought it depended on the site, but then, that might be considered a little intrusive. Did you have to add the ones that work to your keychain somehow??

Yes. For the sites that work, when I entered a username and password, a little box popped up and said something like "Do you want Keychain to store this, blah blah" I clicked "Yes". Now I am automatically logged in when I visit those sites.

Other sites, like my internet banking site, don't give me the little keychain pop up. Could be because it is an internet banking site. Another one that doesn't work is my Yahoo! Mail account.

Mac-Forums works though!

I've noticed this as well. When I use camino I usually get the text box you're talking about, but with safari it's kind of hit or miss. I'm using safari a lot more though despite this.

I think it has to do with cookies.
