Try this:

Go to TOOLS menu/click on the SECURITY tab and then tick the REMEMBER PASSWORDS FOR SITES.

Hi again FatboySlim71 that box is allreadt ticked and had to sign back into this site again getting a tad annoying now.

Go to the tools menu again and options, next click on the PRIVACY tab, at the bottom of the window you should see a PRIVATE DATA section, you need to make sure that the ALWAYS CLEAR MY PRIVATE DATA WHEN I CLOSE FIREFOX is NOT TICKED.

You arn't running CCleaner by any chance in between visits to this site are you?

Thanks for the reply last night FatboySlim71,managed to solve the logging in problem with the browser, i had to go to the Tools>Clear Private Data Tab and untick the Authanticated Sessions box i had done this previously but each time i opened the browser it was ticked again but seems to have settled now and it has not reticked itself for a while now, just need to find the option to keep me signed into the forum here as it still logs me out even though the website remembers my email address and password each time i return i have to log back in.
Also a no to CCleaner and "ALWAYS CLEAR MY PRIVATE DATA WHEN I CLOSE FIREFOX is NOT TICKED." this is not ticked, slow progress but progress.
Thanks for your time.
