Chrome not asking to save or saving passwords?

I have the Settings>Advanced>"Offer to save Passwords I enter on the Web" checked and yet Chrome does not ask to save or save a password. Is there some other setting(s) I need to change to make this basic feature work? Obviously a new Chrome user.

You'll discover soon that Chrome's password manager can get persnickety at times, also some sites don't allow saved passwords.  I use a great extension from the Web Store called Autofill that never fails to fill in any form for anything.

I'm having this same issue. Isn't there some way to fix this problem?

Same here, but oddly it _was_ working in my case.
 
I have an intranet site (HTTP, reachable by an IP) that I log into daily, which had stored my user name and password. Been working fine for 6 months so I know the HTML login form works fine with Chrome.
 
My password changed, but Chrome would not update the saved password. I went into the saved passwords section and deleted the site. Tried refreshing, restarting & logging out & in again and it won't store the site at all in Chrome.
 
Will try some more things, but frustrating as it looks like a bug in Chrome.

I am having the same problem! When I first started using chrome, the passwords were imported from Firefox, then suddenly a couple of weeks ago, all my passwords are gone!

I re-imported my passwords from Firefox, and that seems to have done the trick...for now, anyways.
