Every time I open my browser I am required to sign into my email account; I want to open it and have my Gmail automatically open the default address.

Hi MsTerryM, there are (maybe) two options:
(1) Persistent Google cookie
When you sign in to your Google Account, if Google sets "persistent" cookies -- cookies that expire at a future date and not when you close Firefox -- and you don't sign out before closing Firefox, then the next time you restart Firefox and visit a Google site and Firefox sends those cookies, you should be recognized as already logged in.
This assumes you kept the standard Firefox settings (Remember history, do not clear cookies). If you want to modify your privacy settings and still retain the Google cookies, we can suggest steps to set that up; it's slightly tricky.
(2) Firefox's Password Manager (Lockwise)
Firefox can't always autofill two-step login forms like Google's where the user name field and password field are on different panels. Did Firefox offer to save your login when you signed in on Google? If not, perhaps this option won't work.
