Windows 7: Hotmail login

Done.

Same stuff.

I told you, I've done full cookie clears before. Loads of times. I don't see why this specific time would make it any different.

I know you said you have. But you also state it's remembering information still. That shouldn't be the case. If you remove the cookies there is no longer a file on your machine that tells it you've been there. See the underlying problem?

I asked a friend who got online on MSN a minute ago. He said it's not possible to do this on Firefox since it uses ActiveX to remember. Something like that.

Thanks anyway. All for nothing

Except that Firefox does remember....It's working perfectly fine here.

Sorry to jump in with an answer you probably don't want to hear, but would it not be easier to create separate Windows user accounts for both of you? My wife uses sometimes this computer even she has her own, but for me it was clear from the moment I installed Windows that I create an account for her so I don't have to think if she messes with my account and files and I can keep me always logged in to the sites I want.

I'm maybe a bit account freak, I know that, but I want to keep things separated when possible. I even have a couple of user accounts for me for different purposes, in different languages. English for my work purposes, Finnish for my private stuff and another Finnish account for my sons when they visit from Finland for their mail / Facebook needs, and a Swedish account which I occasionally need for my work.

To the point: the idea of user accounts is precisely to make it simple and easy for more than one person to use the same computer. Own personalized desktop, own settings, possibility to keep the user logged in to different services without need to logout when another user wants to use the computer.

@nekkidtruth: I know about that. What I want to do is multi-login. Not just get that.
@Kari: okay. That seems to be the best solution.

Thanks everyone

Ok multi-login and remembering you are 2 different things. Multi-login is not possible with Firefox, at least not from my tests. I apologize, I thought you were just trying to get it to remember you.
