When ever I turn on my pc and open my firefox browser I have to log in for any website that requires a password. This problem has only started a couple weeks ago. I do not have this problem when I use my chrome browser. Is there something in the settings of firefox that could cause me to log out whenever I shut down my pc. Thanks for your replies

In Firefox, 'Settings/Preferences - Privacy & Security - Remember log-ins and passwords'


Tick the box against the last of these items and you should be automatically logged-in whenever you return. Quick, easy and lousy security - my opinion.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

Amen, Chris!!


Far better to use a password manager like Password Safe which will take you to a given website and autotype your username and password rather than leaving these in browser storage where they're easy pickings.


As much as I've tried to convert people, including my partner, to using a password manager rather than having the browser remember usernames and passwords I have not been particularly successful!
