I think what you would need to do is setup a custom my millennium
login form so that the barcode field is type text and not type
password. Then mozilla/firefox/IE would see that it is supposed to be a
login form and store the info. I think we will be making this change
soon as we get quite a bit of feedback from patrons who hate having to
type in a 14 digit barcode every time they make a request. The public
machines at the library do not save form info so that won't be a problem.
I need to try and understand how the millennium opac handles
authentication, but if you just go to http://youropac/patroninfo it will
log you out and make you type in everything again. Shouldn't it only
do that when it gets a logout request or the time runs out... but I am
getting off topic.
I'll look into this some more and share whatever I find.

I've checked the IUG archives, but didn't find this particular topic. I'm hoping someone might have come across this issue.
We migrated to III late this past summer (from DRA Classic). One feature that customers have frequently requested for the III WebOPAC is the ability for the "My Library Login" and "Request Verification" pages to "remember" the customer's barcode, so they don't have to type in the whole library account number the first time they login.
I've been told that customers can set this functionality in the browser itself. However, I'm wondering if there is still something that needs to be changed in the WebOPAC because (as an example) on our staff PCs (at on my home PC) other web sites allow this functionality already--it's nothing that we've needed to change.
Has anyone made such an adjustment to the WebOPAC to allow this? If so, how did you do this?
Any thoughts on this would be extremely helpful!!
