why do I have to sign into my homepage every time I click the home tab??
every time I click on the HOME icon, I get my basic webpage that asks me to sign in. why is this happening?? the att.yahoo page gives the option of "keep me signed in for 2 weeks unless I sign out" & I have this box checked. I was using IE & Chrome until today & both of those ISP's kept me signed in. what's up with Mozilla??
