Question

Updated to firefox 18 and now I can't stay logged in to various websites

I updated to firefox 18. Now every time I close my browser or even leave it up but my laptop goes into sleep mode, I have to keep logging in to various websites that used to keep me signed in until I signed out or cleared my history/cookies/cache. I have 'remember me' &/or 'keep me signed in' checked on all of the websites.

In addition, each time I clear my cache/cookies/history, I lose stored passwords!!!! This has been going on since v 16.

Re Settings: I do NOT have firefox set to clear everything on closing on purpose. There was a problem w/this a few versions back, so I'm wondering if it hasn't reared its annoying little head again.

Another weird thing is that when I close my browser, I have it set to starting up w/the tabs open when I closed it. Now the tabs open, but most of them are blank & I have to refresh the page. I've been using firefox for years and this is the first time that this has happened.

I am currently using XP but am going to switch to a new laptop w/win 7 and wonder how that will affect these issues.

Thanks for your help!
