Can't clear my cache without signing out of active logins

I can't clear my browser (Firefox) cache without signing out of all of my active logins, which is really inconvenient. I make sure I have the box for that unchecked, and only have the first four boxes checked, but whenever I clear my cache Firefox signs me out of every website I'm signed in on. It takes a lot of time to log back in to all of them.

This problem just started since yesterday, when I installed the latest Firefox update.

My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

If you checked the first four boxes, you are clearing your cookies. That's the problem. "Active Logons" refer to sites that use an old fashioned form of sign-in called basic authentication. Most sites remember you using cookies.
