View Full Version : Firefox W7 issue

02-11-2009, 10:05 PM
I have a strange issue and I am not sure whats causing it so a little help would be great.

All of my websites remember their user names and passwords but they all open in a logged out state. Before they would all open with a logged in state which is preferable of course.

Just installed w7 new Firefox so maybe its a setting but I don't know what.

Any ideas?

Have you been using ccleaner or Revo to cleanup the computer as you need to tell ccleaner what cookies to keep

This is a brand new W7 install, CCleaner is not installed yet.

I tried FF on Win7 RC and itkept swapping between version 3.5.3 and 3.5.2. very frustrating. Ditched it now.

Running Firefox 3.5.4 on Win7 Pro and Win7 RC 7100 machines here, no issues at all.

If I can't fix this then I will have to think about Chrome or something.

For me,I still think Win 7 is not stable enough.Strange things always happen.

Cheers zqwerty that did the trick. I thought that was a privacy setting but I guess not.
