    others can't? I have no special cookie settings in Firefox (keeps all but third party) or CCleaner (deletes them all), yet when I go to some log in pages my data is there, others I have to enter each time. I use Firefox InFormEnter so it's no big deal to log in, just curious!

    Some sites clear their own cookies when you log out. Wilders for example. Next time you log out of here note the message you receive. I believe if you were to just close your browser after visiting Wilders, not Log Out, you may find you do not need to log back in upon starting a new browser session and visiting Wilders. Many sites do the same.
