Automatic - Stalling when cold

Hi I have a '96 Ford Fiesta Automatic and am having problems with stalling

When I start the engine with the car in Park everything is fine, but when I put it into Drive it stalls, the only way to get the car to move off is to put it into Drive and release the brake quickly and move (which is a bit dangerous!) This only happens when starting the car after it has been sitting still for a while, I can stop at lights and everything afterwards and theres not a problem, it's just that first time

Please does anyone know what might be causing this and how to fix it
