I did a test signing in/out of the Peppermint Forums with the Chromium password manager on P5/32 in virtualbox and it worked perfectly.

@GClark,
What extensions are you running? I'm running Adblock Plus and Keep My Opt-Outs.
In my test I disabled Adlock Plus on the Peppermint Forums website before making the first login where Chromium saved my information.
Whether Adblock Plus was enable or disabled made difference after that with logging in. The username/password was automatically entered correctly each time.
Have you tried Chromium with the Peppermint Forums website? Some sites are more challenging for password managers than others.
I've also changed some of my Chromium settings and if necessary I would be happy to compare those with your settings.

For what it's worth, I'm not a fan of Adblock Plus.  I never could get it to work right.

On the other hand, Adblock works perfectly for me.

Different companies -- Different products

Might want to give (simple) Adblock a whirl...   ;)

OK - it's all working now!!   8) 8)

I did ANOTHER install of PM5 and made sure Light locker was off and the password storage was enabled in Chromium.. 

AND IT WORKS THIS TIME!

that light locker is more trouble then it is worth, they should remove it and go back to the old xscreensaver....

Light Locker actually seems good at what it does .. but it can catch you out if you're not aware of it ;)
