I am trying to get away from MS Windows internet software totally.
IE Explorer will log on to the forum automaticly as long as I haven't deleted all of the cookies on a machine. Mozzlia ( 1.7 ) will not.
Is the forum setup for all browsers or just IE. Or is it a setting on my machine that is keeping me from logging in. -David

I know if you sign out you have to sign back in and if you just close the page while signed into CADTutor you will automatically be signed back in when you visit that page again.This does however leave leave your membership less secure if your opn a shared PC,as anyone could visit the page as you.Not sure about cookies in Mozilla,but here's (http://mozilla.gunnars.net/mozilla_privacy_and_security_tutorial.html) something I found for you.

As you probably know, phpBB (this forum software) is open source and as such, they tend to support other open sourse software - Mozilla is no exception. As far as I am aware, there is no issue with Moz but you do need to pay special attention to the security settings - they are quite comprehensive. The link Hypo pointed you to is good. Go to Tools>Cookie Manager and make settings for CADTutor. I think cookies are blocked by default so you'll probably need to turn them on.
Let us know how you get on.

Yep, the cookie setting for this machine was set to accept cookies for this session only. Changed it to 4 days and whoopie! It works.! -David
