Firefox 17 is not retaining cookie settings.
Firefox 17 is not retaining cookie setting for websites. Besides removing all existing exceptions I had, it will no longer retain exceptions for cookies. I have the basic cookie setting as unchecked for accepting cookies (that is the default is not to accept cookies), but when I add an exception, it does not retain it when I close my browser. This is very serious stuff. I will have to move from my beloved Firefox to something that *does* work. I can't believe you haven't been flooded with complaints. Or maybe you have.

Windows 7 Premium. Just got the 17 update today. Now nothing works...well, some sites will work and others wont but this sucks.
Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
Actually another suggestion Cor-El made in another place (with my question better stated) did the trick - I renamed the cookies.sqlite and let FF create a new one, and now it is saving the persistent cookie. Thank you!
