Heya



I reinstalled Panther and transfered over my previous Keychain and told it to use THAT on as the main Keychain (has over 200 login/pass that I dont remember anymore).



Nonetheless, all the pages I had L/P for are not recalled (like NYTimes, etc....)



What am I doing wrong? Is there a proper way to use keychains that are imported?

    Have you tried Keychain First Aid? BTW, it may not be a keychain problem but a safari one. I've been having problems with it not "remembering" my l/p for sites I KNOW it did before. And the entries are still in the chain, it just won't fill them in for me. Annoying. :/

    L/P ?



    Login/Preset?

    Locked/Private?





    (just want to be familiar with *all* the acronyms)

    L/P = login/password

    usually i have my keychain, a "login" and "system" keychain.



    There was a fourth one somehow. Keychain got off my default and created this new fourth keychain. I managed to drag and drop the l/ps that had been created in this fourth keychain into my usual default keychain.



    I then killed off the mysterious fourth keychain and am back to having the three keychains.



    Weird.



    So far so good.
