FireFox Loses Log-ins

FireFox all the sudden started losing some of my log-ins every time I close my browser. And it's never the same ones each day.

I have it set to keep cookies till they expire. Also have the box checked to ask me before clearing private data. What else should I check?

Well some of those cookies may have expired before you next visit the site, and expiry dates will be different which explains why it's different ones each time. I don't use Firefox but you should see if the 'keep cookies' setting has a "keep forever" "or "keep until I delete" setting.

Alternatively you could switch to a web-browser that doesn't rely on cookies for automatic log-in.
Both Opera and the re-launched Netscape Navigator have a built-in password memory which does work. I've used them both.

Opera: http://www.opera.com/

Netscape Navigator: http://browser.netscape.com/

Worth commenting on is the fact that every browser I've tried has at some point crashed on me (sorry......program has to close etc.), with the exception of Netscape Navigator 9 --- it's never messed me about, it just gets on with it.
