    No idea why Bob, but I suspect that it may be because of the site security upgrade. I haven't had to change mine.

    Psalm 100 - Perfect - A psalm of thanksgiving.

    And to be specific:

    4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
    go into his courts with praise.
    Give thanks to him and praise his name.
    5 For the Lord is good.
    His unfailing love continues forever,
    and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

    Wishing everyone a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!

    Lisa

    Not sure here either. Just like Charlie...I haven't been asked to change mine.

    @Bob:

    Are you logging out of the site each time you finish reading and/or posting? If so, try checking off the option to remain logged in. That really shouldn't matter as far as your password is concerned since remaining logged in still requires your password when you access the site again. But, worth a try.

    No Charlie, I'm not logging out, so I can't see what or why it's happening. I have the site "pinned", along with a few others that I go to a lot. This was the only one it was happening on. On a good note, it didn't happen this morning.

    I am about to change my password, from the one I received in the email yesterday, so if it happens after this, it must not like the password Safari generates for me.

    Edit: I had to reset my password again. It seems the site no longer likes the Safari generated passwords. Does anyone know how to change the settings for them in Safari 12.0.1?

    I don't think you can as Safari uses the Keychain to generate passwords. I don't like using the Safari suggested passwords and instead make up my own based on long phrases that include numbers and words with upper and lower case letters mixed together. Try putting a pass phrase together that has numbers, letters in upper and lower case, etc. The Keychain will remember it for you.

    A belated Happy Thanksgiving to all . . . been to busy with feasting and family to hit the Web at all, so been off for a few days. But, I’m not having access or password issues either FWIW
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    So, I changed my password again today, and I believe I fixed the issue. When I put in my current password, it would auto-fill my member name in "New email address" box. But I wasn't updating my email address. On one of the previous attempts to change my password, after I had Safari generate the password, I changed it back to my current email address, because they were pre-filled, and I thought they were supposed to be filled in. But today, I deleted everything from both email address boxes. Then I signed out, and now I have two separate saved logins for Mac-Forums, one with my member name, and the other with my email address, and they both have the same password.

    ^ This is the change password blank screen.

    Screen Shot 2018-11-24 at 1.46.27 PM.png

    ^ It "auto-filled" my member name, in the "New email address"

    Tomorrow, I'll find out how well it worked.

    Thanksgiving in West Texas. Hope you enjoyed that West Texas "Road Runner". Enjoy the warmer weather while you can, this Winter looks like it might be a nasty one. When there's ice or snow on the ground around here, that's the time to hibernate and stay off the roads.

    And that looks like it's happening earlier than usual down in that area and even unusual for some areas according to some reports:
    https://www.ksat.com/weather/heavy-s...ed-in-amarillo
    https://www.tripstodiscover.com/best...snow-in-texas/

    And no, Canada was not responsible and did not send it down there!!!
    Besides, we need it for our own ski and winter resort areas.

    Looks like all is good now. I'll just have to remember that for the next time I'm asked to change my password.
