I am helping a friend on her new Vista PC. The normal setup is fine using IE as web browser and the vista email that is setup and her email is working fine. She prefers to use Mozilla Firefox as her web browser so downloaded it and installed fine. When clicking on the email icon on her Verizon toolbar in Firefox, it asked for username and password but says "incorrect username /password". The email works fine when using IE and clicking on same email icon in the toolbar but not from Firefox. Also clicking on the email icon from desktop also works fine but some reason when accessing the email from the icon on the Firefox browser it still says "incorrect login info". During the initial Firefox install/setup it completed all of the standard import functions during setup fine. Why does the email login info not work from Firefox browser/verizon toolbar icon but works fine from IE email icon?

I have had the same problem with Firefox remembering my login information in Vista. The XP operating system is fine the problem is only with Microsoft's Vista operating system. It probably has something to do with Vista's security setup, either that or Microsoft is just kicking the competition around? Actually it's probably a little bit of both those reasons.

The only way I have been able to correct the problem is to download the IE Tab add-on. It allows you to set up a tab to open with the IE engine embedded. If you have a site that is giving you login problems, when it is open select the tools button. In the dropdown box select the IE Tab Options. The problem web site should be highlighted in the pop-up display box. Select the add button to the right and it will transfer the web site to the list of sites that you want to open with the IE operating engine.

Now that web site will always open under the IE operating engine when you start up Firefox. After you login to that web site if you go back to the tools button and select options again, you can save all opened tabs as your home page. Now when you start up Firefox you will still have all the advantages of Firefox and those hard to login web sites will automatically load and sign you in the same as they did before.

Someday Microsoft will probably stop teasing Firefox and let them in on what they have to do to get around this obstacle, but then again maybe not.
