My various accounts disappear from the sign in page and i have to type them again each time. Why?

That my question too. Is it a function of the browser I am using? If not then can MSN help us out?

If you use the (free) Firefox browser you have the option of saving your login/passwords. Have you tried that?

I have that peeve also. On my computer at work, using IE6, the Windows Live sign-on page displays all the email addresses that I have used and I can sign on any one of them without retyping the address. At home, using IE7 or Firefox, it will display only the last email address used and I have to type the full address of anything different; it will not autofill. It is doubly irksome because I have to type the "@m s" also, unlike many other email providers. If I click on "Remember me on this computer," then the next time I log-in it will come up with that ID but will "forget" the previous one. I don't want to save the password, just the Windows Live ID (email address). I know it can work like I want (like it does on my work computer). How do I make it do that at home?
