Click on Tools>Options>Privacy and untick the "Always Clear my private data when Firefox Closes" box.

Thanks for your answer but that hasn't resolved the problem because that was already unchecked

why do you want it to stop?
its performing all of the daily maintance that you should to keep your pc running quickly
its also protecting any secure information by removing all of the passwords
and things like that
if you dont want to have to keep re-typing them in
then just dont close FF
just minimize
and it will be out of the way

it might now be firefox doing it do you have any other cleaning programs that have that oprion? Things like PC confidential, CCcleaner, or any other programs that may clean cookies. I don't think that firefox is cleaning them if the option is not checked on there.

Default Re: firefox deletes cookies every exit

how did you get rid of it? did you go to add/remove programs and uninstall there? If you didn't you might not have uninstalled it correctly which may mean that it is still there deleting your cookies....

I'm having nealy the same problem. Every time I close Firefox, I have to re-log in to all the forums when I fire it back up. It seems to be clearing the cookies. I have checked all settings and none are set to delete cookies. There was a problem with this before, but I'm not sure what the solution was.
