Hi guys

One theory that is coming to mind is that some of you may have your browser settings set for wiping your history, after you have finished on the internet or for when you shut down your pcs/laptops? This would wipe your passwords unless you choose to have them saved. Does this sound possible?

For those of you using Firefox, go into Tools. Then Options. Then Security. There should be a box, halfway down the left-hand side that says 'Remember passwords for sites' - this should be ticked. Opposite it is a button that says 'Saved passwords' - this should have a log of all the websites that you have your passwords saved for.
If there have been any websites that, in the past, you have declined to have your password saved for, these will appear in the 'Exceptions' button directly opposite the 'Remember passwords...' button talked about above. If you DO now want your password to be saved by Firefox, then just delete the website name from the Exceptions list.

I hope this may be of some help to someone. I don't use Windows Explorer,. so can't offer any help for passwords on that site, however, I wouldn't be too surprised if there was a similar setup for it.

M, that is helpful advice, thank you; however, genes reunited have acknowledged that there are problems in the site that are ongoing and that they are having difficulties in resolving the issues, but they are doing their best.
