Problems with Roboform not being able to auto-fill certain fields???

by 7 comments
Hey there Warriors,

I have picked up a problem with Roboform recently and I wondered
if any of you know how to overcome it?

The question is in 2 parts:

When I try and access certain sites, mostly membership,
a login authentication window pops up on top of the main site

Roboform can't autofill the fields - is there a way to overcome

I use the Generate password feature in Roboform and as result,
don't remember the individual passwords.

-What do you do in this case?
-Do you write down every password?
-Is there a way to recover passwords?

Your assistance is appreciated....

    The problem with the popup password window is probably the following:

    Usernames and passwords are stored separately for forms and popup
    login windows.

    When you created you username/password for a membership site,
    you entered them into a HTML form. So Roboform stores them as
    a form. When you then access the site, which is protected by
    .htaccess, the popup login window appears. Roboform stored your
    login as a form login, thus it's not offering you the username/password
    for this popup.

    The solution would probably be to retrieve your username/password
    data by clicking on the passcards icon and then entering that
    data into the popup manually and letting RF store it. From then
    on you should be set.
    Hey Tom,

    Thanks for your response....

    It's a great help....I was at least able to locate the passwords
    and get rid of the authentication window.

    However, RF didn't give any option to save the password for that
    particular login.

    Is there a way to "force" RF to save the password?

    Also, what's the best way to backup all the passwords?

    I'm having the same problem.

    But didn't make time to investigate.
    So, I'm interested too.

    day and have to leave for another right now....

    I am new to RoboForm, and so far I am very happy with it despite some difficulties. Most of the websites I visit have username and password on the same login page, for which RoboForm works great. However, some sites have an initial username entry page, followed by a sitekey and password page. Roboform does not seem to recognize that the initial username page requires an entry. I have been working around this by entering website and username via click and paste from my Safenotes, which is where I transcribed my old handwritten notes. Once the password page is reached, Roboform will fill in the password. Is there a method of making this a little more automatic?

    I have the latest roboform, and it handles .htacess generated popups with no issues.

    As noted before, if you hover over the passcard, a drop down should appear, and you can click the edit box to see the password, and copy it if you need.

    Hi guys! I have a snails farm and snails factory. Basically what we do is export snails production such as snails caviar, canned snails and so on... we do have couple of clients but it's not enough. However we dont really do any marketing campaigns and its hard to attract clients by placing an ad on alibaba. So guys maybe some of you could give me some advice what kind of strategies I could implement to grow this business? Thanks!

    I am a professional writer and have quite a few clients that I write for regularly. I want to expand my clientele and I offer people free written content. I understand that these new potential clients have never worked with me before, so I start writing for them for free, just so they can get a good idea of the standard of my work. Then when they are happy with it, they pay me for the full service. Firstly, is this a good idea? I would think that it would be a great way for anyone who needs written content to get a look at a potential supplier while having zero risk. They pay nothing so if they don't like it, they can just tell me and we go our separate ways (although this very rarely happens as I offer high quality written content).
