Having to re-enter user IDs and passwords

I used to stay logged in to my regular sites, such as Facebook, eBay, Hotmail, message boards, and so on, with only having to re-enter them on occasion. In the past few months, I have to enter the user ID and password every day on every site I visit. Clicking the "keep me logged in" or "remember me" box doesn't work past about 24 hours (I haven't timed it exactly). Not sure what caused the change, but I'd like to be able to stay logged in to my favorite sites without having to re-enter my user ID and password every time! A friend suggested I check the cookies, but I haven't gotten far with that. Could it be a browser upgrade? I use Firefox and am current with the version. (However, this same friend uses Firefox, and she doesn't have the log-in problem.)

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Yes, I'm a tad bit lazy when it comes to surfing the internet. :)

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same thing?
