    Internet Explorer does not offer saving passwords


    I am running Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer does not offer saving passwords on websites like: Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and others, but, somehow (??) it works on facebook.
    I checked "Auto Complete" and it is set to ask to save passwords. Also, checked the registers using regedit, and they are correct.
    Also, run troubleshooting.

    Please help me fix this issue...

    Have you reset IE ? (InternetOptions/Advanced/Reset) I would choose the first option and then if not successful "Delete Personal Settings" option. IE needs to be restarted after.

    If not, disable your tracking protection, extensions, and AV one-by-one to see if that could be the culprit.

    Have you seen this article ?
