I use firefox 5 on Windows 7. The thing is that firefox doesn't store any login information even though I set to store it. For example, when I use superuser, I have to login every time I visit the site.

What might be wrong? Do I have to change some setup?

Just a thought,but it might have something to do with your cookies... Are there any sites that FF5 will "remember"? – John Jun 30 '11 at 21:54
FF5 was released in 2011. There have been several hundreds security updates in this time, you should really upgrade – Bruno9779 Dec 17 '15 at 10:20

The login is stored in a cookie, I use Cookie Monster to manage cookies, you can add cookies to the protected list and still delete the ones you don't want.

Setting Options/Privacy/Remember history solves this issue. Thanks. – prosseek Jul 1 '11 at 17:54
