Hi
I am using a Firefox browser which has just been updated to 2.0.0.20.

When i login to hotmail & check the 'remember me on this computer' tab, it does remember me after i sign out until i close the browser.
When i re-open the browser, i have to type all in again!

Ok, i think in IE, it remembers me all the time!

Could it be the update?

When i was about to contact hotmail technical help, it said to include any software just installed!
As i say, recent update & also i installed SuperAntispyware & System info for Windows info, thats all.

Help appreciated.

Latest firefox is 3.05,do you log into hotmail by way off your Windows Live folder?

Yeh i know latest is 3.05 but i hate version 3!

No, i just go to hotmail.com via the my drop down address bar & login there!
My address is normally there & i just have to add my password!

Use "IE Tab" Add-on for Hotmall and
Firefox 3.0.5

Also it seems now that many sites i use where i have to login using a username & password, i used to just start to type the 1st 1 or 2 letters & it would remember me, now they don't!!

Hotmail doesn't remember me in IE or FF browsers after i have closed the browser, even though the 'remember me' box is clicked!

Am wondering if anything in tools/options/privacy/private data should be checked??.
