I CAN NOT STAY SIGNED IN TO MY HOME PAGE!

Posted

Every time I start up Firefox it takes me to a generic iGoogle sign-in page and I have to enter my username and password to get to my iGoogle http://www.google.com/ig home page. This is already set in my General Tab under Tools.

This was working just fine until about a week ago. I'm not sure what was changed. Somewhere along the line I did upgrade to FF 7.0.1

Please help!!

Thanks very much,

Alan

Delete you google and igoogle cookies.

Here is what you would find over at Google:

to clear your cache in Firefox

Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > "Clear now"

to clear selected/specific cookies in Firefox, use the search to locate "google" cookies and then use delete

Question owner

Thanks very much for the help. All better now but not how you suggested. I had accidentally checked the Cookies and Cache boxes to be cleared every time I exited Firefox.....Duhhh
