How do I get Firefox to remember allowed pop ups after closing?

I need to allow a pop up for paypal permanently, but once Firefox is closed and re-opened, it has to be allowed again the next time I need it. I have set Firefox to clear cookies and cashe on closing, could this be why? Although I've always done that and it used to remember it, I never had to reset it each time I open Firefox.

If you clear Site Preferences, the pop-up blocker exceptions for a site are reset. For more information, see:

Thank you for your reply, I only clear cookies and cache on closing Firefox, the site preferences box is not ticked. On the permissions tab Paypal is allowed. However, I just closed Firefox and re-opened it, and paypal has remained on the list of exeptions. This is very strange as this morning I had to add it again before using paypal, the exeptions list was empty, I haven't changed any settings. Firefox has just had an update, so hopefully that has cured the problem.

Hopefully it stays fixed. Let us know if the problem resurfaces.

If you find that preferences do get reset, see the article How to fix preferences that won't save.
