This an annoying problem I'd like to sort out. On my laptop Firefox won't remember my username / password on WebmasterWorld for example. I have to click on login and my details appear there rather than being remembered and logged in automatically. This happens on all sites where a cookie's set for automatic login. I'm now on 3.5.3 but this has been happening in previous versions. I've tried deleting cookies etc but no dice - any suggestions?

Thanks, that is fine. The username and password are saved ok, it's just that it's necessary to go to the login screen and click in the user field for them to appear then click login rather than logging in automatically through the saved cookie.

Thanks but the cookies are not set to expire so quickly but I can see what that would be handy security-wise. I did try deleting all cookies, and setting up the login again, rebooting but the problem persists. I think I'll try reinstalling Firefox and seeing if it sorts things out.
