example: in past versions, FF would take me to my home Yahoo page already signed in, it now takes me to login page (w/ PW & user name filled in), I have to click LOGIN which then takes me to home page. This happens on many other sites also.

I read " Knowledge Base / Firefox asks for user name and password on internal sites" but this doesn't apply to web surfing, does it?.....TIA
