1. Please, update you Flash. An actively exploited security hole in Adobe Flash 10.0 r45 and earlier can compromise your computer.

2. Some information about passwords, though I don't know whether it helps:

Usernames and passwords are not saved

Firefox may be set to remove saved passwords when it is closed. To undo this setting:

   At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Tools menu, and select Options....
   Select the Privacy panel.
   If Firefox will: is set to Use custom settings for history and Clear history when Firefox closes is selected, click on the Settings... button.
   Make sure that Saved Passwords is not selected.
   Click OK to close the Options window 

Firefox is now configured to not clear your passwords when closing.

passwords not saved

"This may be useless advice, but I've seen reports stating that reinstalling Firefox fixes this kind of issues. Please try it and confirm if it does it for you. I hope it does. "
