I recently had an update (or upgrade?) for FF 16. Today (and I believe the update was done a day or two ago?) my cache, cookies and history are not clearing when I close FF. Also, certain links are not working. Not links for full web pages but for site pop-ups (like the smilie window on a message board). They worked a few days but are not working today. I click the link and nothing happens. I noticed the problem with the cookies not clearing for a few weeks ago but it was only on one site not all sites which is what's happening now.
My apologies if that's a little confusing. Thanks!

I understand what you mean, altough I cannot for sure say what this would happen. It might very well be because you are using a non stable version of Firefox (aka. a beta version, used for testing and for testers to report bugs to the developers).
Do you often use beta versions of Firefox?
Yes, it's a beta and I completely forgot to submit the error through the beta bug system. Thanks for the reminder (and the response). I've just submitted it.
At any rate, have you tried running Firefox in Private Browsing mode? This will ensure that no infromation from your session is saved once you exit Private Browsing mode and/or exit Firefox.
You can set Firefox to always start in Private Browsing mode: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/private-browsing-browse-web-without-saving-info#w_how-do-i-always-start-firefox-in-private-browsing
I do use the form fill so private browsing is a bit of a hassle. I just have everything set to clear when I close Firefox.
Regardless, it seems to have fixed itself and is working now so for the time being all is good. I have no idea what happened but it's working.
Thanks for your replies!
