Description

The past bunch of times I've visited dev.haiku-os.org and clicked "Log in" I've had to re-enter my name and password, despite every time checking off the "remember" option. It's not every time, though, and it remembers during a session at least (like if I open a new tab, I'm logged in already.) But it does seem that most times that I reboot the computer it forgets, if not all.

hrev45413 gcc4hybrid. Any clues?

WebPositive (still) doesn't support storage of credentials (passwords and usernames).

My bad. Thought I'd read somewhere that this functionality had been added in the last couple months.

Here's the thing, just now I booted up, started Web+, went to dev.haiku-os.org, and clicked the log in link, and it logged me in without asking for credentials. So there must be some kind of functionality, no?

hrev46198 I just booted up, launched Web+, went to dev.haiku-os.org, and clicked the log in link, and did not have to enter my credentials, but got logged in. Is it the site tracking my IP address, or does Web+ have some partial functionality there? Anyway...it could use this feature working :)

Also my gmail works between reboots without me ever logging in.

That should be related to Cookies.curl. If you logout from Gmail, quit WebPositive and back to Gmail, you have to login?

In anyway Pulkomandy is working on improvements/fix of Web+ :-)
