As a sidenote, this is not a constant behaviour, some sites do behave as expected.
Here is an example of a site that does not work: https://bellcanada.csm.emptoris.com/
NOTE: as an additional bizarre behaviour, if I delete the password in the preferences and log in again, Safari 6 will not prompt me to save the password.

Just clicked on this thread because the same thing is happening to both my MacBook Pro and iMac since upgrading to ML, but on some sites the fields get populated. On Authorize.net I previously just had to type the first letter and it would enter username and password. Now I have to enter every character and it does not ask if I want to save the info. Amazon, my checking account and Paypal populate so security does not seem to be a factor. UPS, Fedex, my shop cart, I have to consult my Rolodex.
I have the Autofill settings right and the passwords are stored correctly. This really goofs me up because now I have to carry a Rolodex with me.

Same issues here. Would appreciate if you find any answers. Thanks.

whenever I've had dodgy issues with passwords on Safari I found that deleting the .plist file for Keychain solved the issue

No luck. I tried both "Keychain First Aid" and then removing the .plist for Keychain, but no luck.
I did find something interesting yesterday. I was playing around with the developer menu from Safari, and in the User Agent menu, I selected "Internet Explorer 7". Well, for one site (not all) where the passwords were not stored, they were now!
My guess from this is that Safari has changed the rules where it identifies a form as being a "password form". I've seen this on many of my sites using much JQuery or SPRY for form validation: with SPRY attached to password form fields, Safari rarely (if not ever) prompts to store the password info, but if I remove the SPRY validation from the fields, Safari will save the username/password fields.
Conclusion: no luck yet, same issue.

How do you find the .plist and where is "Keychain First Aid"?

This should help:
But once again, this was no help to solve this problem.

This is odd, but no Library file is listed under my User file (the one with a house icon). When I search in Finder for "library" (as a folder) I get two folders with nothing but FontCollections and one with 3 items unrelated.
When I search "com.apple.keychainaccess.plist" nothing is found.
Does ML have a vastly different architecture?

Since Lion 10.7, Apple has hidden the Library folder. It's still there, however.
To view it, go to Finder, then type SHIFT+CMD+G (Go -> Go to folder), then type: ~/Library
That will open it.

You are very kind to help me with finding the Library, and you are right, it didn't help.

I'm adding myself to the list!!
Some fill, some don't!!
Currently Being ModeratedAug 3, 2012 10:48 AM (in response to °Bernz°)
Add me to the list - some websites I get the drop down box and some I do not that I did before.
