    Deleting Firefox Files
    I use MSN messenger, and when I click on the button to take me to my Hotmail inbox and it makes me type my password every time! A few months ago, it would take me directly to my inbox. Ive tried reinstalling Firefox and deleting as many internet files as I could find. Any tips on how to fix this?

    Thanks

    You're trying to fix this by deleting internet files...?

    You don't need to delete any files.

    Make sure your cookies are enabled fully.

    Ya, my cookies are enabled.

    I get this message when I click on my emails in msn:

    The e-mail address or password is incorrect. Please retype the e-mail address and password, or sign up if you haven't already done so.

    I think I need to delete something, so that I can enter my pw and email again and have firefox remember it.

    If I click on the "remember my email and password" button on hotmail, it still doesnt work the next time.

    Nothing to do with Firefox at all, it's just MSN, wants you to put in Password. (It is for your security after all.)

    But it used to always take me directly to my inbox, I think it started making me enter my password when I went to hotmail.com instead of checking my emails through msn. I signed in thorugh hotmail.com and now it wont work the other way.

    I hate typing my password in each time!

    And I likewise, with FFox, with a different forum site. It's the only one where I have to sign in every time with my user name and password, despite accepting its cookies and contacting the admin about it. All other forums 'remember me' okay, no need to sign in every time. A small nuisance.
