I recently installed Fedora 12 on my USB drive. But I am not able to save the changes I do in a live session. I created 2 users and put some icons in desktop... But after I restarted Fedora from the live usb, the changes could not be seen.

Can anybody suggest what to do to save the changes?

Did you install or copy the Live CD ISO onto the flash disk ? Seems like you copied the live CD ISO onto the flash disk than installed it.

You need to create a Live USB with persistence mode, have a look at this article for instructions on how to do so.
