Using FF; Windows 7: (1) I am NOT tech oriented and I indavertently left the "stay signed on" box checked. Now my username always appears automatically and I don't want it to, but I can't find how to fix that ANYWHERE. (2) How do I keep that "stay signed on" box unchecked permanently. (3) Before I came to this page, there was a page that asked me for my email address, etc. It said that email address was already in use. No kidding; it's me. It was trying to create a new account, so I finally just used a different email address & set up a new one.
