    Passwords
    As you all know I am fairly knew to mac. One thing like about the mac is the whole keychain deal! But some sights like THIS do not give me the option to save a password. Is there anyway I can trick the mac into saving a password for that website? Also another website I go to is a mail server for my school. This sight has a different IP address each time and every-time I type in my password I tell keychain to remember, but this does not work because each time the IP address is different. FOR that web site is there anyway I can tell the mac just to input my password and username?

    You can click the 'remember me' box for this website so that it remembers you through a cookie? Unfortunately, the password remember thing is to do with unique strings url session strings. It is designed so that it doesn't remember your password unless you ask the website to.

    Many sites, such as bank sites, often have code in them that prevents your browser from storing a password. This is done for security purposes.

    applications/applescript folder/applescript.app should be the path.. or similar.

    Google it. Apple.com it.

    Its much like automator only more customizable. If you don't know what applescript is, or basic script language you shouldn't investigate. Otherwise just type the password in manually.
