This is happening from around 2 days. Say today I logged into support.mozilla.com then it would work for today only(or until I restart my PC) next morning when I boot my PC open firefox all history is cleared and I have to enter my Login details again which is kind of annoying. I checked for this problem with Google Chrome but it works fine.

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

  • Create an allow cookie exception (Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: Exceptions) to keep such a cookie, especially for secure websites and if cookies expire when Firefox is closed.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in Private Browsing mode.

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

Doesn't work Tried all the settings, Fully uninstalled Firefox, Installed a Fresh copy but still doesn't work. The interesting point is when I close and restart firefox it remembers the logged in sites hence I don't need to re-login but it is when I restart my PC and then open firefox all history is gone I've to re-login on each site I wish to visit. This didn't happen earlier with the older version (5) 6 is causing problems I guess. I am attaching my settings.

If you use cleanup software like CCleaner then check the settings for the Firefox application.

Please note that full uninstall and full install usually will NOT help, because your Firefox profile is kept intact between installations, and I believe that profile data is the usual cause of problems, not the app installation directory. Regards!
