Dave, still nothing wonrkig Gmail is my homepage, and every time I open Firefox, my name and email address are filled in, but the remember me box doesn't have the check mark in it, even if I clicked it the time before. This happened once before and after a while I found a website that had me go into the Mozilla files in my computer and change a line of code and it started wonrkig great again.

I am petitioning the White House to institute term limits in Congress. Please sign this petition and pass it along. We need 150 signatures to make it publicly searchable on the website.
