    Hi - just installed 1.1.1 on XP. Trying to use it to check LiveJournal protected entries. RSSOwl seemingly refuses to remember the login/password, even when the "Remember Username and Password" checkbox is enabled in the authentication dialog. Is there something I'm missing?

      Are you sure that you have entered the correct credentials?

      What type of authentication are you using? As far as I know, LJ offers Base, Digest and NTLM. You can see this as parameter inside the feed's URL.

      Authentication method is digest. The credentials are correct, as I am able to log in and receive protected entries without a problem. RSSOwl just consistently forgets to remember said credentials on request.

        Please open a bug report on this issue.

        Also, please have a look at what situations the credentials are lost. Does it happen in the running sessesion, directly after restart...

        Do you have the protected feed stored as favorite?

      All protected feeds are stored as favorites (same credentials for all feeds). Happens in the running session. I have also tried to enter credentials, immediately quit and restart before feed refresh, but the l/p are still not retained. Basically, the l/p only works once, after which it has to be re-entered. I'll open a bug report.
