I have Firefox set so it keeps every window I go to open, and I want to change this to keep only the current window open. I've looked in Preferences but can't see anything that will automatically shut down the window I'm leaving to open up a new one. Can someone help, please?

Also, while I'm here, I always click the box to remember my name and password when logging on to this Forum, but it never works, for I always have to key in both each time. Why is this?

First off, I'm sorry you're overloading yourself with all those windows. I tend to go with tabs myself-it's less chaotic.

Second in order for the "site" to remember your name, you have to have cookies enabled on your browser, which you apparently don't have.

To reset everything in Firefox to the original defaults (which includes fixing both of your problems), follow the instructions HERE.

Why not use tabs instead of windows? Then you have only one window to keep track of, instead of a whole pile of them.
