You guys with this alleged problem of needing to sign back in all the time... have you guys checked the Remember Me box near the user/pass fields?
X2 I always check the box and accidentally close the site and leave the computer to do other things and when I come back I simply click on my favorites and Shazam I am up and running again. I even have to log out 2 times!

A few common things to keep in mind in regard to having to log into FTE:
1) Using the Remember Me option uses browser cookies while not using Remember Me will be session based. The Session based login will expire when the browser is closed and you'll be required to log back in when you revisit the website after the browser was closed. The Remember Me option, which is cookied based, should remember your username/password for a long time (days).
2) IE and Firefox both have options to clear data (history, cache, cookies, etc.) when the browser is closed. This can include cookies - which is the file that contains your login information that remembers your login information. If this occurs, you will be required to log back in when you revisit the website. Both browsers also have the option to exclude any websites marked as Favorites.
3) Some 3rd party security software may prevent, or delete, browser cookies.
As ctubutis pointed out, this login issue is almost always a browser cookie issue that can be fixed by simply deleting the login cookie for Ford-Trucks. Logging out is not enough as the cookie must be deleted. When you revisit the website and use the Remember Me option, you'll get a new cookie that should work. While the issue can happen on the server side, whenever it does it impacts almost every single member.

I have to sign out twice as well. Perhaps it has something to do with "keep me signed in?"
