    I use Mozilla Firefox version 3.6.8 and have to log in every time I come to the website.
    Internet Explorer keeps me logged on permanently.
    And yes, I have the "Logged in for Keeps" selected.  :)

    Do I have something that I need to change in Firefox?

    Thanks for your assist on this.

    Do you get a "Do You Want Firefox To Remember This User Name And Password?" box at the top of the page? If you do you need to check the "yes" box. Firefox can remember login info if you so choose.

    Go to:

    Tools/Options/Security/Remember passwords for sites?/yes (you must check "yes").

    I'm no expert, but i believe Firefox wipes cookies/cache when you close program - this is whats making firefox NOT keep you logged in

    since this is one thing that keeps firefox speedy, its not an option i'd personally turn off, but if it annoys you:

    pull down menu at top -
    Tools/Options - goto privacy tab, towards the bottom, there is an option to "clear history when firefox closes"

    uncheck that box - or possibly change the settings with the button on same line/

    i hope that helps

    I'm going to guess that you bookmarked the site, and that's how you're getting there?

    Delete that bookmark. Log in, then bookmark the site. That should work.

    bookmark the site, clear your cache if your not wanting the firefox to remember your password. The only downfall to that is it erases your web browser history

    As above, log out, click on tools and click clear recent history, Make sure the popup says "everything" at the top  (not just recent or last hour) and then make sure site preference is clicked in the list under it. When history is cleared, refresh the page and try to log in. once done look at mozilla toolbar and allow remember pasword. That should do it. If not you'll have to change an advanced setting.
