Hey guys thanks for the replys. I actually found the add on (still on my comp) I was using shortly thereafter I posted looking for it. I also found that Lazarus program recommended in Ronnies link above which looks legit.
For those interested I use Textarea Web Cache
and for whatever reason the little icon in the bottom right of the internet box is gone but when I click 'add-on's' under 'tools' it's still there and still automatically saving all content typed into a text input field. Great for a site like LTH if you have problems with your internet crashing now and then, all you do is open the Textarea add on and copy and paste what you were writing. Good Stuff.
