Before today (when I updated FF) whenever I would close FF browser it would log me out of everything I was logged in to (ie. gmail, FB, Hotmail etc.) which is the way that I like it. However since updating my browser it keeps me logged in to everything, I have changed all of my settings so that everything is supposed to be cleared when FF closes but it doesn't change anything I am still logged in to all the sites. How do I change this back?
