How can I make this page load without the check box marked by default? Answered

So, I use Hotmail. When I load it on my laptop, this is what I see.
Is there a way to make it so that it is not checked by default when I load the page? It's frustrating to have to un-check it every time I check my e-mail.
Piggyback question, while we're griping about Windows live...
When I sign out of my e-mail, it redirects me to MSN.com, where I'll type Instructables into the URL bar. Usually while I'm typing up there, the page steals the cursor and puts it on the Bing search bar. Suddenly I've got Bing searching for "tructables," and I'm wondering if Instructables has been deleted. AGGGH! I hate Bing! Is there some sort of Greasemonkey script I can use to keep it from pilfering my cursor?

You might download the page source, edit it, save to a local drive and bookmark that?


That was a great and innovative idea! When I tried it, though, that infernal check box was still laughing at me.

Can you post your page source as an attachment?


<input id="i0201" name="remMe" value="1" checked="checked" onclick="onRememberMe(this);" class="cssCheckbox" type="checkbox"></td><td><label for="i0201">Remember me on this computer

That's the one to muck-about with I guess - change to value="0"?


I don't know how to do that, I highly suspect you could do it with greasemonkey.

If it was me I'd type my username, tab to the password box, type my password, tab to the next box, press spacebar to untick it then hit enter to submit. At least that way you don't have to fiddle with the mouse.
