    Using Firefox for AP

    Since reading about the colour advantages of using Firefox instead of internet Explorer on this site recently, Mongo has started using Firefox for AP. However, he noticed that every time he opens up AP he now does NOT have to log on !!! When he leaves he always logs off. But next time he opens the site, again, he does not have to log on.

    What’s going on ??? is this meant to be this way ???

    Strange one indeed mongo, firefox here as well and when I log out and then return to the site my username and password are saved but I still have to log on.
    I wonder if it has something to do with cache and cookie clearing on exit from the site.

    I am sure a tekky type guru somewhere will have an answer.

    I think you might have clicked to save your password when you first logged in?

    Yeah it will remeber passwords if you want it to....

    You could have said yes for the site the 1st time loaded it ? Goto Tools options Security and uncheck remember passwords for sites and see if that helps?

    Its probably old cookies causing this issue - clear them!

    Also: Has Firefox remembered your AP password?
