Firefox has lost auto login facility

  g0slp 21:23 16 Sep 2009

Running Vista Home Premium, 3Gb memory, 320Gb HDD. All updates correct. Firefox also up to date.

For some reason I have lost the auto login facility for forums, shopping etc, even when I tick boxes on login pages telling the pooter to 'remember me'

Have tried the search facility here, but had no luck.

Can some kind person please advise. Thanks

Hope you are keeping well from G4LNA?

Have you tried making a new profile? It sounds like something has got corrupted in there.

Hi mate. Long time no speak. Yes, pretty well. I'll email you in the next few days :)

It's not just one forum; it's everything, which makes me wonder if a setting has changed after an update? I'm blowed if I can see anything obvious though.

I really don't want to change identity on every board/forum I go on though...

From FF's Tools>Options>Security tab, is Remember Passwords still Enabled and, from Privacy tab, is Remember Search and Form History also Enabled?

Thanks for replying

Yes they are. Just checked again.
