    I keep having to reenter my login info for newsgroups. I have it
    checked for them to save the settings. However, every so often it
    doesn't find the info and I have to reenter. This never happens for the
    email accounts I have stored only newsgroup settings. Any ideas,
    suggestions?

    I haven't heard this one in quite a while, but then again, you are using
    a pretty outdated version of TB.

    It used to be, particularly if you had an account this many. many
    groups, that Moz/TB would harass you for the user/pass, over and over
    again, until you had tried every possible entry point for the account.

    Once you did, it would finally stop. If it isn't asking you every time,
    hang with it a couple of weeks, and see if it goes away.

    Or upgrade to version 1.0, and see if that solves it.

    ok think i'll upgrade. Do I need to uninstall .8 before installing 1.0?
    By the way thanks for the help.

    I recommend uninstalling using Add/Remove Programs first, then
    installing the new version. The uninstallation will not touch your
    profile data.
