For years I have used Firefox to save sign in information. However, since the latest update, on both my PC and Mac, the websites are constantly signing out and have to be signed back in. This is most tiresome. None of my settings have otherwise changed in any way. I always tell firefox to remember passwords but come the next day, they have always been forgotten again. It is very frustrating

Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie.

Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.

If clearing the cookies doesn't help then it is possible that the file cookies.sqlite that stores the cookies is corrupted. Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete cookies.sqlite-journal and cookies.txt, if they exist, in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.
