Hi there,
Please try one the the following steps to resolve your issue with safari
Step A. 1. Select Safari > Preferences. 2. Click Autofill at the top of the window. 3. Check the box for usernames and passwords. Now your usernames and passwords should be stored
For certain sites the above way will not work,specially high security sites,like banks or e-mail,try the step mentioned below
STEP B 1.First, click on the Applications folder on your desktop and then click Utilities.
2.Then click on the keychain Access button.
3.On the left hand side, click on login under Keychains.
4.Now click the + (plus) icon down at the very bottom of the window. It's below the list box that shows you all the current items in the keychain.
5.Now all you have to do is enter three pieces of information: the website, the username and the password.
6.Go ahead and close keychain and open Safari. Go to the website and begin typing the username. A message will pop up. Safari will ask you if you will allow it access to confidential information stored in "website name" in your keychain. Go ahead and click Always Allow and now whenever you visit the website, just start typing the first letter of the username and it'll automatically fill in the rest
If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.
I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.

HOW COME I CAN LOG INTO MY g-EMAIL EVEN WITHOUT INPUTTING MY PASSWORD I CLICK INTO THE PASSWORD SECTION AND IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY LOG ME IN? HOW CAN I CHANGE THAT?


Automatic log ins are actually a function of your browser (FireFox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.) In your browser's settings, you must have "remember username and password" enabled. To disable it, click on this web site to guide you through the process for your specific browser. My username and password are saved on the login page

How do I get 2 FB accounts on Google


I suggest you use two different browsers. For example use two of Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox under Windows; or Safari and Firefox under Mac OS X.

Use one browser to open your own FB account, and a different browser to open your wife's FB account. Once you have entered your username and password in each browser for the respective FB account, and don't delete cookies, each browser will remember your respective account.

To easily access FB when you open your browser, add the FB site to your Favorites or Bookmarks bar.

How do i log out


Login to Facebook as different user
Whether you have to log into multiple Facebook accounts, or need different users accessing their own Facebook account on the same computer, you'll quickly run into the inconvenience of having to manually log out and log back in for each profile. But there are several ways around this problem, both on desktop / laptop computers and on mobile devices: it all revolves around web browsers and apps being able to remember your particular credentials, and on using temporary sessions to quickly check your account without logging anyone out (which will be appreciated if you are a guest or are using a friend's computer!) This tutorial breaks down solutions by scenario: just pick the one that best fits your situation!
Preliminary note: Facebook doesn't currently support linked accounts: even if you are using the same email address for one Facebook account and one or more Facebook pages you are managing, you'll have to log in and out as needed. Note that while Facebook lets you have the same email address attached to multiple company / business pages, you need a unique email address for each Facebook profile (basically, a personal account, designed to be tied to a single human!)
Sign in with a different username on the same computer Scenario # 1: you need to login more than once, and you generally use the same PC / Mac.
switch-windows-user-to-access-a-different-facebook-account.png Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux all support individual user profile, and allow multiple users to be logged on to the same computer at the same time. If you regularly use a shared desktop or laptop, you should each have your own profile on the machine anyway: that allows you to keep each other's files separate, have your own program preferences, etc.
Tip: adding new users to your PC is easy; as long as you don't keep everyone logged on at the same time, it won't affect performance: create new users in Vista / create new users in Windows 7.

The same browser stores its settings elsewhere under a different username!

facebook-cookies-in-browser-before-signing-out.png Web browsers like IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari (etc.) all keep their own cookies stored in the "
cache", and the cache is unique for each user profile on the same computer. "

Cookies" is the technology Facebook uses to remember if you checked the "Keep me logged in" checkbox when you last signed in. So, by having your own user name and profile on the machine, you can make Facebook remember your login without having to log out when someone else wants to check their account: they either need to logon to their Windows username (for example), or use the OS' built-in "

Guest Account" (see tip below).
By logging into your computer under your own username, as opposed to sharing a user profile, you can have access to your Facebook account without ever having to login and logout! (In fact, you can even sign in to different Facebook accounts under the same username - see scenario # 2, below.) This approach, if addresses your situation, has the added benefit of letting you use your favorite web browser to logon to Facebook (the second scenario works by making each account use a separate browser!)

Tip: you can also use the "Guest Account" feature; it's not enabled by default, for security reasons. Once you turn it on, it allows someone to use your computer without having their own user account on the machine. It's great for a home computer, with friends staying at your place for a few days - they have their own space, without messing with yours!
Check multiple Facebook accounts without switching OS user Scenario # 2: you don't want to setup different user accounts on your shared PC / Mac, and each user agrees to use a different web browser for their personal stuff (email, Facebook, banking, etc.)
login-to-different-facebook-accounts-based-on-web-browser.png This is the easiest way to stay logged into multiple Facebook accounts on the same computer, as long as you fully trust other users with access to that particular machine (typically, a family computer). You now know that web browsers store their cookies in their own location: even if multiple browsers are installed and used under the same Mac / Windows user profile, each browser stores its cookies and other settings in its own, separate location (no cross usage or sharing of data). To make things easy, just add a shortcut to each web browser and rename it after the name or nick name of its primary user (Mom, Dad, son, daughter, etc.) Facebook is designed to be a cross-browser website, and any recent web browser will play nice with it - even most older ones will work fine as well! login-to-another-facebook-account-using-a-different-browser.png
Note: in fact, this technique works for any online account you have, not just Facebook. If multiple family members each have a Gmail or Outlook.com account, or different accounts at the same bank, they can check them in their assigned browser, without having to log out to switch account! Likewise, web browsers that offer to save your password would only save the password of their primary user (no need to select with which username you want to login to a particular website or web app).
Temporarily login to Facebook as a guest user Scenario # 3: you just want to check your Facebook account once or twice, for example while a guest at a friend's house, or when you are temporarily using someone else's computer.
launch-private-browsing-in-ie.png This approach relies on the built-in "private browsing" feature that most modern web browsers support. By default, the browser remembers your browsing history, your auto-completed usernames, and even your passwords in some cases. When you login to Facebook with the "Keep me logged in" checkbox checked, a cookie (small text file) is created, allowing the browser to tell Facebook to "remember" you, which works until the cookie expires (about a month later), you clear your cookies, or until you manually logout - whichever happens first.
The private browsing functionality ignores all those cookies, and creates a blank, temporary user profile: this allows you to login to Facebook, your email account, and any other online service, without having to sign out from other people's accounts. Another advantage is that simply closing the private browser window will automatically erase all your data! private-browsing-window-in-internet-explorer.png

Private browsing naming conventions and keyboard shortcuts

Here's a partial list of popular browsers that support private browsing, along with the keyboard shortcut to launch a private session. Here too, this works for any online account, not just Facebook:
  • Firefox and Pale Moon - press Ctrl+Shift+P to open a "private window".
  • Google Chrome / Canary - hit Ctrl+Shift+N to launch an "incognito window".
  • Internet Explorer - press Ctrl+Shift+P to open an "InPrivate" window.
  • Opera - hit Ctrl+Shift+N to open a "private window".
  • Safari (Mac OS X version) - hit Command+Shift+N to launch a "private window".
<strong>FYI:</strong> you can generally tell that you're browsing in private mode, because the browser displays a visual indicator. Internet Explorer shows the word InPrivate in the address bar, Firefox shows a mask in the top right corner, Chrome puts the face of a secret agent as cue in the top left corner, etc: <img alt="Private browsing visual indicators" src="http://logintips.com/facebook-login/i/private-browsing-visual-indicators.png" height="81" width="586">
Sign in to different Facebook accounts on your phone or tablet Scenario # 4: you have your own cell phone, tablet, or other internet-enabled mobile device, but you need to login to different Facebook accounts and pages on that same device.
mobile-facebook-apps-for-cell-phones-and-tablets.png Most people use a native app to check their Facebook account on their phone or tablet (either the official Facebook app for iOS / Android, or a trusted third-party app, like Friendly) - it's faster, and doesn't require an extra browser tab opened at all times. So you'll generally use the official Facebook app (for iOS or Android) for your primary account. For another account you need to check regularly, your best bet is another, third-party Facebook app. The best alternative we've tried is Friendly for iPhone / iPad (available as a free and paid version), but there are a few others. But, just like the desktop computer scenarios outlined above, you can also use different web browsers for different Facebook accounts: cookies for mobile browsers are also stored on a per-browser basis (no cross data sharing).
Log into your own Facebook account on someone else's device Scenario # 5: whether or not you own or have access to your internet-enabled tablet or cell phone, you need to access your account using another person's phone or tablet, just this once!
anonymous-browsing-in-mobile-safari-for-ios.png Short of installing a Facebook app on your friend's phone, tablet, or phablet (not really feasible if you like keeping your friendships :), your best bet is to use the same "private browsing" feature now available with several mobile web browsers. Google's Mobile Chrome supports it out of the box (on Android and Apple's iOS), and so does mobile Safari: private-browsing-in-mobile-chrome.png in old versions of iOS, it could only be used for everything or nothing. Now, just tap on the "Private" button when you are about to open a new tab, to engage anonymous browsing for that tab. In Mobile Chrome, select "New incognito tab" from the menu button.

As soon as you close the private tab in either mobile browser, cookies created during that session will automatically be deleted, and any username / password with which you logged in will be "forgotten"!

Hi,

Try to login to your Webmail and see if you can login.

when I say Webmail, for example you have a hotmail account, try to login to www.hotmail.com by using Safari or any internet browser.

If you can't login to webmail, that means you're enterring the wrong password. But if you can login, most likely you have a corrupted account profile. Try recreating your account in Entourage.

Hope this helps.
Cheers!

Everytime i turn on my pc the mail is my home page. I never sign out and the button is pushed to remember me, yet i have to sign in everytime.


Make sure your computer's not deleting the browser history and catch doing so erases the password from the computer's memory therefore you'd have to RE type it instead of the computer keeping you login or automatically logging you in

My solution to this problem would be to manually clear the catch/cookies and browser history so the computer doesn't keep trying to do that then RE type your password and username tell the computer to remember you then close the browser and restart your computer then try logging in again the computer should automatically log you in or have kept you login hope this helps

How do you remove block pop ups from mac pro


Are you using Safari? The following will clear your browser. Try a Safari reset:

Click on Safari in your Safari menu, located at the top of your screen. A drop-down menu will now appear. Choose the option labeled Reset Safari
this will give you the option to delete stored login info, favicons, cache, history, and cookies. If you do a full reset you’ll likely see noticeably improved browser performance, but you’ll need to log in to all the websites that normally “remember” you, so if you doubt you’ll be able to recall all of your login info across the Web, try deleting everything but login info and cookies first to see if that speeds things up.
If you are using Firefox: http://noscript.net/getit Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
