Until 4.19 I could save my session passwords and then launch sessions with no prompting. 4.20 caused a password prompt before the session could be used, so I didn't upgrade. Is it possible to use saved sessions without a password prompt with more recent versions?

Sure. Just make sure you check Save password when saving session.

I'd done that (back on 4.1.9).
4.2.0 started prompting me; must have been a transient problem, I'm fine on 4.2.6
