As I stated in the titles, whenever I close my browser, it auto signs me out. I tried Remember Me and it worked for a while but now I can't get it to work :D, is there anything I can do?

is it happening at all sites that require a log in...if its all sites it may be your settings...This article here describes a feature available in Firefox 3.0, Clear Private Data, which allows you to delete all or part of your saved history.
This feature has been upgraded for Firefox 3.5, and is now called Clear Recent History...
you want to reverse the setting so it does not clear your cookies or history

Every time I open my browser, I have to sign in. It's how I like it - a security feature, if you will.

If I have tabs opening and closing, as long as one is open still, it remembers me.

Yep same with me (@tabs), but no one has access to my computer(@Security).

Not the point - if you are connected to the internet, more people than you like to admit have access to your computer. Whether they can actually get at anything is yet to be seen, but it is only a matter of time.

So therefore the question becomes rather, what sort of data do you have on your PC? Is it worth someone spending way-more-than-usual time to try and hack you?

Therefore again, we here at Geeks to Go refer to our security recommendations - run a manually configured firewall, an updated antivirus, have a complex and regularly-changed password. Just these three things alone go a long way in ensuring computer security.
