When I had to login in a site, Chrome used to offer me a number of possible user names and later the password associated with the user I choose (provided that I saved the user-password association previously).
Now Chrome still offers the correct possible users but then offers no password, I have to enter the password (if I remember it, that is, otherwise it's password resetting) and, after a successful login, Chrome ask for permission to save the password. I give permission, of course, but next time I login it's again no password remembered.
If I open the
Settings->Passwords screen I see (the equivalent of)
Offer to save passwords [YES] Auto Sign-in [YES]
Saved Passwords Saved passwords will appear here
that is, no password is really saved.
Final consideration, the same page permits to
View and manage saved passwords in your Google Account and if I go there I can see all my sites, my users and my passwords except, important exception! that some of these passwords are stale.
I'm on Debian Sid, Chrome is
Version 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)
from Google's official
What can I do to fix this annoying problem?
This is what I get when I launch Chrome from the shell
