There is a saved password in Safari for this web site, but the password I now use is different.
Open Keychain Access located in HD > Applications > Utilities
Select Passwords on the left.
Type in the name of the website in the search field top right corner of the window. Then right control click that keychain, then click Delete.
Now go to Safari > Preferences > Passwords. Select and remove the website url there.
Now go to Safari > Preferences > Autofill. Make sure: User names and passwords is selected.
Navigate to that website. Enter the user name and password. Click Yes when prompted. That will create a new keychain for you with the correct password.

Thank you - actially, I did ust that on my own from this web site. But it is only one of several I have encountered where the keychain entry is outdated and I have manually put in the current passwrod. Sometmes, I have been asked to save the new password, but often not.
Is this a known defect in Safari or a symtom of somethng wrong in my system?

Some sites, including that one, are constructed to prevent the client from storing a password. You would have to use a password manager such as "PasswordWallet" to avoid having to enter your credentials.

(1) Open "Keychain Access.app"
(2) Select keychain "login" and category "all items"
(3) Click the + (add) icon at the bottom
(4) Enter the webpage, username and password.

Safari used to prompt to save passwords but does no longer.
Only got a few passwords still operational.
For some reason a site that previously allowed autofill login (iCloud) is no longer in the list.
Have been trying to reactivate but to no avail.
Followed all your steps to add in keychain but still does not appear in Safari Preferences Passwords.
And yes Autofill User names & passwords has always been ticked.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
