Firefox does not save username and password

Post by sotos » Tue Jun 23, 2020 11:03 pm


We experience the following problem with our application:

During the login stage and while we enter the username and password, the browser (which is Chrome) asks the user whether it wants to save the username and password. So far so good.

However if we switch browser (say firefox or Edge) the new browser does not ask for the password to be saved.

We use the following component for the username and (similar) for password.

Define_Com Class(#PRIM_EDIT) Name(#Edit_User) Displayposition(3) Parent(#COM_OWNER) Showselection(False) Showselectionhilight(False) Tabposition(1) Width(323) Height(40) Placeholder('User') Top(64) Dataclass(#USERNAME)

Any ideas of how to solve this?

Hi Sotiris,

Saving login information and passwords is a browser setting, which is different for each browser.
So it seems to me that you are looking for the opposite of this : ... d-manager/
