I use Comodo and am now curious, . . I'd like
to know what is meant when the words in the box
mention hyjack, etc.

I now notice that the system that saves previous web sites
visited, allows me to go to those sites without using a password, .
is it possible that someone besides my self can do that to or with in
my browser ?

Yes it is possible if you leave your computer unlocked and logged into your account.

If you are concerned with your security, then I would recommend that when you leave your computer press the Windows Key and the L key at the same time. This will lock your computer, and will prompt for a password which I highly recommend setting via User Accounts in Control Panel.

I would recommend turning off any password saving feature. The right attack could extract those passwords relatively easily.
