Using Eclipse Kepler and when I add a new project, and after retrieving required components, I am trying to save the file to server and getting "unable to login error" I checked project properties and observed that my password field is blank. I enter password again, it asks me to refresh the content in workspace. I click ok and again same problem. After updating I immediately go to project properties and see that my password is again wiped. Anyone faced this issue. Please let me know if more information is required to complete this question.

I tried with username and password of multiple orgs and the behaviour is same. I also tried changing workspace path and created new project. Again the same behaviour.

Followed the best answer on Question # 19366 here. But I dont have any content in security storage. Please refer below screenshot

    Click on the 'Force Project' and delete that entry. Next time onwards password will be saved.
