Firefox only sporadically prompts me to choose "Remember" when I register a new log-in and password. How can I get Firefox to remember log-ins and passwords, or how can I manually enter them so that the browser remembers them?

I am having an issue with firefox not clearing cookies upon exit. I have my privacy settings on "Use Custom Settings For History", and I have set everything to be deleted upon exit. It appears to clear history just fine, but it retains cookies. Is there an add-on or a way to make firefox actually remove cookies?

I think my cookies.sqlite file is corrupted because none of my passwords are saved once I exit the browser. I know this is a common problem, and I've tried all the steps that were suggested before: I've tried deleting and renaming the file (it doesn't stay deleted-a new cookies.sqlite file comes up when the computer is rebooted), I've checked my privacy settings to make sure I'm accepting all cookies, I disabled the part of my spyware protection that looks for malicious cookies (it's Spyware Doctor, if you're familiar with that program, and the part I shut off was the "Cookie Guard")...nothing seems to be working. If you can help me, please understand that I'm not great when it comes to computers, so talk to me like an idiot!
