    Safari username autofill?
    I would like Safari to remember my usernames on websites. I know I can go to the autofill under preferences to do this, but then it will also remember my passwords and autofill them too, and I dont like the idea of that. I just want my username to be remembered and autofilled and not the password. Any help?

    Specs:
    MacBook
    It is either saving both the username and password, or save neither.
    Safari won't save only the username with the password blank.

    well that kinda sucks I guess. There are just some sites and such that I just dont trust if somebody were to get my computer so I guess I'll just have to stick with typing them in everytime. Thanks for the help!

    Why does autofill not function even though I've set it up to do so under Preferences. It was working fine for a while but now it does not work.

    If you are talking about autofill as in your name and address, telephone numbers etc. Safari gets its info from Address Book app, so you have to fill in your details in that programeme

    No, the usernames and passwords. It doesn't prompt me to save anymore. And it doesn't even input the past entries it saved. I tried resetting Safari but nothing happened.
