Sorry to push but have you been able to find the root cause of this issue by any chance @Mattches ?
If you were to do this and elect to save this login data in the browser, then go back into settings and re-enable https, your login data will not be remembered the next time you visit the address?
Sadly no. I did disable https and i saved the login+password and it worked as it should but once i enable https it just dont work anymore.
Feels like a bug…Have you asked your devs about it? maybe you could create a report so they can do some more digging in the code. I’m an old developer myself and i tend to test many things in parallell. At this point it feels like we have tried everything we can in term of setting and environment.
Sorry for the late reply. One last test here – would you be willing to try logging in using Chrome? I’m wondering if you’ll get different results. I know you said it worked for Firefox, but Chrome is a much closer comparison and may tell us whether or not this is an upstream issue or not.
Thank you for your patience and willingness to troubleshoot.
Sure no problem. Its a good idea.
My finding is actually very surprising (sadly not in a good way).
I tried to get to my router using Chrome and it does’t even work (latest version of Chrome).
In Firefox and Brave i get atleast the usual warning and can continue to login to my router…
Also one more thing i should have said earlier is that in Firefox the password is filled in as it should. So the problem from Brave and Chrome is not present in Firefox.
I tried with my NAS and could get to the login page (in Chrome) but the issue is present. It behaves just like Brave. No password save window and no key on the bar.
Did you get the same issue using your router?
When I tested, I did not get the same issue as you did. However, it seems – thanks to your diligence and testing – that this is issue is rooted in the chromium engine, rather than Brave itself. I’m forwarding this information to the rest of the time now (quite literally) and will likely open an issue for this today.
Yes i agree with that, since its the same engine and they behave the same. Although its strange it worked out for you. I cant explain that.
Any how thanks allot for sticking out so long and the ideas. Appreciate that your reporting it. I’m sure i’m not alone with this issue out there
By the way will i be able to follow the status or is it internal system you report it to?
I’m actually not entirely sure – I’ll ask but I imagine if it’s an upstream issue it should be resolved within the next browser update.
Thanks allot, cant wait to get this fixed, so darn annoying to pull up my password manager and copy/paste each time i want to get into the NAS.
I have similar issue when trying to login to local server with unauthorized SSL certificate (https://serverhostname:4343),
it does not offer to save password and there is no key icon in address bar.
In Firefox it saves password without any problem.
any suggestions? Im using latest Brave version on Windows 10
Doubt there is a fix right now. Hopefully @Mattches will let us know once Brave fixes it. And yes it works in Firefox for me too.
No fix that I’m aware of yet (sorry for the late response, just got back from some time off), but I do have an open issue to capture all passwords not being saved/not being offered to save:
I’ve included this Community thread in the github issue. More information as it’s available – sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks for the update.
