Gmail amnesia. Is there a cure?

How do I get Chrome/Gmail to remember my email account password? It's the same problem in Safari, but I use mostly Chrome. I used to be able to log into my three gmail accounts without inputting the password. No longer. How to bring back the password remembering functionality in Chrome?

Google changed things around with the 'one account controls all your google stuff', and I was presented with three gmail accounts and only one of them (my primary?) remembered my password in any browser, so if I wanted access to the other two, I had to input the passwords every single time. Super annoying.
But recently things got worse. Now every single account demands I input my password every single time. And the box 'keep signed in' has disappeared from the log-in page.
I have Chrome try to remember passwords on websites in preferences, but this does not help. Keychain in Apple is useless.
This is a huge hassle. If things don't change this is about enough to get me to move away from Gmail as my primary email (to what I don't know). Any ideas?
I'm on Google Chrome Version 31.0.1650.63 ("Google Chrome is up to date"); late 2009 iMac, OS X 10.6.8.
