For example, after I login to, exit the browser, and come back cookies. I cannot save my logins!

I have checked tools > options > privacy...and changed all the settings, but it will not work.

I had the same kind of issues. I turned out the file storing the cookies was "corrupted". I remove it and restarted Firefox and it could save the cookies again.

The file is called cookies.sqllite. You'll find it on Vista and Windows 7 at the following location:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>\

On Windows 2000 and XP it's located at:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>\

I removed also the other file cookies.sqllite-journal.

Check your Options, Privacy tab and make sure Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session is not checked and you are accepting cookies from the sites you want to and that the Keep until option is not set to Keep until I close Firefox.

For me just checking Accept cookied from sites is enough to remember my login on superuser.
