keeping me signed into things .. help please!!

by vwmom / January 21, 2006 3:00 AM PST

How on earth do I keep myself signed into things?.. It seems easier on my old computer.. I'm probably missing something simple.
For example.. If I sign into a forum.. I'd like to stay signed in.. always.. I'm the only one that uses my computer. It's sooo annoying to have to sign in each time I've closed a window.
