I choose Remember history in Privacy tab and Remember passwords for sites in Security tab in Options, but when I close Firefox, it doesn't remember my cookies and I have to do logins manually each time I open Firefox.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the "Cookies" and the "Site Preferences"

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


If clearing cookies doesn't work then it is possible that the cookies.sqlite file that stores the cookies is corrupted.

Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete other present cookie files like cookies.sqlite-journal in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.

Thanks. I had to remove all of my cookies but at least it works properly now.
