I did this but it didn’t change anything
Mac Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Mac Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

Are you Still in private mode?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
because my user names and passwords are still blank
Mac Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Mac Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

The safari background is dark in Private mode and it's White in normal mode, if your usernames and passwords are not showing up then you may have accidentally cleared them or auto fill form data has been turned off, to turn it on Goto settings>Safari>Auto fill>Names and Passwords On

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
