This started happening only after I installed firefox 3.5 on my winxp laptop. Each time I close and open my browser I have to relogin to google (ensuring that stay signed in) is checked. Was some default setting changed in FF 3.5 or have I changed something. Please help. Thanks.

Do you have any add-ons installed that interfere or interact with cookies?

Also, is your system time correct?

Lastly, click Tools > Options, and under Privacy, there is a option saying ...

Firefox Will :... (Make sure it says "Remember History"

+1 For making me open Tools > Options. Dumb me. I should have figured it out myself. Clear History when FF is closed was checked. – Tugga Aug 16 '09 at 14:28

I had this same problem when I used a GMail notifier add-on. All of the notifier add ons I tried did this. I ended up using either Digsby, Trillian or the GMail Notifier from Google to get around this. I've settled on the GMail notifier.

+1 for gmail notifier, very significant add-on – InfantPro'Aravind' Mar 3 '10 at 7:24
