cookies not saving

Posted

I am having problems with firefox saving my cookies. I have my privacy settings set to save my cookies until they expire. Everytime I close firefox, my cookies are lost. I even uninstall firefox and downloaded and install the most current build and the same thing is happening along with a memory leak.

How can I get the cookies to save?

Do you have Firefox configured to clear history on exit? If so, click the "Settings" button. There's an option in there to clear cookies as well which might be checkmarked.

See Clear History (scroll down to Clear history when Firefox closes)

No I don't.

I went back to 3.6 and the cookies are saving plus no more memory leak like in ff4
