Default Re: firefox deletes cookies every exit

Because that doesn't resolve the issue!!!

I've got my FF open on another monitor and the only thing I can find that might be causing that is > Keep my history for X amounts of days < Mine's set for 90 days and seeing I haven't hit that yet all of my cookies and favs are still in there.
I don't know. Just a shot in the dark...

I just found under the cookies settings you have a drop down menu to select how FF handles them. The menu reads > Keep until: They Expire, I Close FireFox, and Ask Me Every Time <
Check that setting as forum cookies are treated as third party cookies.

I'm not a happy user of FF for the simple reason addons and skins are sometime hard coded to over ride some user changeable settings.
You guys need to compare a list of what addons and skins you have in common. If you have a common ground then we can do some experimenting to see which one is giving you the grief.

I've checked those settings too and they are fine.

Keeping Firefox open is not a feasible option when you shut down your PC.

I'm using version 3.0.10.



FIXED:

I ended up completely uninstalling the program, then reinstalling it. Be sure to backup (export) your bookmarks first. It works fine for me now.

Did you put a check mark in the box that says Remove my Firefox personal data? I did that to make sure everything was removed before reinstalling.

I'm running 3.0.7 so must have been something between versions.

Yup, but at least you'll be starting out clean. You could always backup the list of saved passwords in Firefox before doing so.



EDIT:

My system crashed. Now Firefox is doing it again. Just wonderful. . .
