How do I change firefox to log out of websites when I close a tab? In other words, if I close a tab of something like facebook, email, etc, I do not want firefox to leave it logged in or remember the password. I would like to close the tab and when the site is reopened have it ask for password etc again.

There's no built-in feature along those lines. The closest thing would be a private window, but you need to close ALL private windows to empty the private window cookie jar; closing one tab won't destroy that tab's cookies.

One extension which can destroy a site's cookies automatically when you close the last tab accessing that site is:

Note: You still should expressly log out of sites when you are done with them. Otherwise, your session may remain open indefinitely.
