I seem to be having a problem with Google Chrome saving my passwords. I have tried for a while now to save my Lycos chat password and the box appears saying

Do you want to save this password

And within 1 second it's gone, well before I can click on it.

Any idea as what I can do to make the option stay where it pops up until I have chosen one of the 2 options?

See if there's an option on that website to keep you logged in, if it does you'll be logged in automatically and won't need to have your passwords save - which I might say is a not very secure thing to do. –  Alex Mar 25 '13 at 18:43

I don't believe there is any way of changing the timing of this feature. It is hard coded.

It is usually on form submit, I believe. But once the page changes (www.domain.com/login to www.domain.com/myProfile/RecentStuff) it generally will go away. So if the page is logging in then moving them somewhere else you would have to catch it before the move... Speculation based off of personal experience... –  AthomSfere Mar 25 '13 at 17:45

Alternatively you can look at a service like LastPass. It integrates into Chrome. Auto-fills usernames and passwords. Prompts to save them but also allows you to directly enter them into the 'Vault'

One possible workaround is to enter an invalid password first. Login fails, there is no redirect and the save dialog remains. Save the invalid password so that Chrome has an entry for the website. Now login manually using the valid password and Chrome will automatically update the entry.
