    I have the Remember Me option selected, and I have all the right settings for it(MR) to remember my username/password, yet whenever I close Firefox, and re-open, it logs me out. Any reason?

    Do you have firefox set to automatically purge cookies when you close Firefox?

    Nope, my cookies are set to be cleared whenever they expire (Other options: When I Close Firefox, and Ask Me every time)

    Right underneath that is the "Private Data" area where you can have it clear private data (including cookies). Might check that too... if that's not the issue maybe see if it happens in another browser?

    (I have a FF theme installed so my window probably looks a bit different color)

    It wasn't that, but I figured it out.

    I went into the Saved Passwords, and removed MacRumors, and then re-entered my information, and it asked me to Save the password, so yeah.

    Okay, it's still not working!

    Nor is Facebook.
