This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

I have this problem with few other websites as well. – jdog Oct 19 '11 at 0:06

Several solutions to this one problem.

The thread Can I force Google Chrome to remember passwords? gives this advice :

Use the autocomplete=on extension. It changes 'autocomplete=off' to 'autocomplete=on' in web pages, so your passwords will be remembered.

The thread Chrome doesnt ask to save passwords says :

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR PROFILE\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
Make sure chrome is closed
Delete the file named Web Data (or make a backup)
Restart Chrome

Once you restart, chrome should automatically create the same "Web Data" file.
The only problem is that you'll have to save all the passwords again.

(This advice is evidently for XP, other operating systems will have this file elsewhere.)

The thread Google Chrome Save Password Problem? advices a last-ditch effort of importing the passwords from Firefox.

Thank you, your first answer hits the nail on the head and solves my original problem. The second answer is what I sort of excluded as a valid answer for purposes of the bounty - given that I had no other responses for ages I assume it may be the "best answer" as well. – jdog Oct 19 '11 at 22:58
