    When I log into something like GBAtemp or my GMAIL or anything and press Save password and I close the browser, after that I go and press Firefox again go to GBAtemp and I have to login again. Same goes for IE. My cookies are turned on for both of them as well. Yesterday I downloaded Chrome and I logged into GBAtemp with and closed the browser went back to it and it was automatically logged in. Why can't I do that with Firefox?

    Tools - options - privacy.
    Make sure accept cookies is ticked and 'keep until' is set as 'they expire'
    Or you could try and see if you already have cookies for gbatemp and delete them

    Do you use any cleanup programs, like CCleaner?

    You wouldn't be able to use it, it has spaces in it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    make sure firefox isn't clearing the browsers history every time you close it.
