When I haven't visited a site in a month, I have to re-enter my username and password again. I have Cookie Auto Delete addon to help remember sites. But firefox forgets my login info after a month of inactivity. Is there an addon or fix for firefox to remember my login info permanently?

Cookies can also expire based on expiration dates set by the site. Have you reviewed that factor about the cookies?

For the Not-experts and a neat fact to learn..............

You can open the Storage Inspector via Toolbar Far Rt 3-bar "Open Menu"/ Web Developer/ Storage Inspector

The Toolbox will appear at the bottom of the browser window, with the Storage Inspector activated.

You don't need an add-on for that. Firefox has a built in password manager so you don't have to remember it or deal with the hassle of expiring cookies.
