There's a setting that accepts a cookie for the "current session only".
Maybe you have that selected?

That does sound like the problem, but no, it's set to "Accept cookies normally"
Version 0.9.2 btw.

I have the same problem with some forums. The cookies are lost when the browser is closed. All settings are correct.

I have no idea of the authenticity of this, but I found something to suggest that there is/was a bug that gave a hard limit on the number of cookies stored by Firefox:

Netscape has set a 300 limit on cookies and deletes the least recently used cookie when the limit is exceeded ( Netscape Reference [devedge.netscape.com] ) So it makes sense that the same limit appears in any Mozilla browser.
Does that account for what you are seeing - a number of the sites you visit regularly are placing boatloads of cookies (near the limit of 20 per server), or you visit a boatload of sites that place cookies.

Having actually reading the link I posted, there is a long Bugzilla page on this:
As far as I can make out, scanning it, there is a limit on both the maximum number of cookies (300) and the number of cookies per server (20).
I think this behaviour will change in version 1.0, but is still present in 0.9.
