Go into Options> cookies
Two windows displayed
1 Cookies to delete
2 Cookies to keep
You need to put the cookies for the password sites into the keep window
Just look through them for the named site and select them and use the > option to put them into the keep window
Hope this helps

BigCam is spot on, I asked for help on this to a while back. Cookies accumulate so quickly I would run CCleaner, reboot-important, then input all your passwords etc. Don't visit any other web sites before going into CCleaner as advised above and move over all the cookies you have picked up.

start CCleaner, click on Cleaner-applications-firefox/internet explorer.

Untick saved form information.

Hardly an awful program. If you had carried out what has been advised by BigCam, all passwords and their cookies would have been Ok. I have used CCleaner for a long time and have not had any problems.

that you don't need to include Cookies at all in the clean up if that's your sole worry.

CCleaner is an excellent prog.You just need to save the cookies for your passwords and settings to be saved. Try a few run throughs...there is not much better than this program.
