Do you happen to run any clean up program such as CCleaner?

This is the Firefox Password save:

Also have you run through this in Firefox?

It's a couple of years old but only the layout has changed (the settings are now vertical on the left instead of along the top).

Nope it's still not working just wondering if there is a limit on some sites to how many computers it sees logged in.Cause i know if your logged in you cant be on there site from another computer without one logging out while other is logged on but this would only be 2 at once cause xp computer is shut off most of the time.while only vista and windows 7 are always on.But vista doesn't have a browser open if that makes any since.

Have you tried using Internet Explorer immediately afterwards to go to one of the sites that is playing up? What happens when you do so would tell us whether or not it is a browser issue and to some extent whether it is a website issue.

Thanks - not a browser issue then.

Did those sites used to work like the rest at one time?

Have you tried them on another computer?

Very odd. In IE11 are you set to InPrivate browsing (see IE Tools Internet Options)? If so try it without just to see what happens.

In Firefox > Privacy, have the troublesome websites cookies been allowed - see Exceptions button?

Upload a SS ( screenshot ) to a site of your choice, of what you are looking at.

Give us the link please.

I assume you are in the screen that appears after you hit the Exceptions button and the site listed is showing as Blocked.

You can type in any website you wish and use the Allow or Block. If these are grayed out it is because Firefox believe they are insecure. You can Remove them instead but be advised that you might be taking a risk. It could be that you are better advised to type in your ID and Password each time.

As this was happening with more than one browser and now more than one computer try disconnecting the power from your router for about half a minute then powering it up again. It could be a router firewall issue.
