My Firebird 0.61 doesn't keep the cookies for very long.
For example, at this forum, I've selected the option to use a cookie so I'm always logged in. But after maybe 24 hours or so, I'll have to log back in again because the cookie's gone.

This doesn't only happen here for me, but anywhere where they use cookies.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks in advance :)

Go to Tools->Options...->Privacy->Cookies->Enable cookies

Which selection boxes are checked?

Have you activated for the current session only?

Only first box is checked (enable cookies). The others, like for current session only, is unchecked.

Firebird has been that way for a while now. The last time I went without such problems was when I was using Mozilla 1.3.1 (I can't remember what Firebird was equivalent). Something must have been goofed after that release, and its passed on to Firebird.

A few sites keep me logged in, but places such as other message boards keep logging me out and resetting my preferences. These things do not happen at all using Opera or IE.

I have no cookie exclusions or restrictions, I'm also using the Firebird nightly from Sept 06, 2003. This has also happened in both Linux (MDK 9.2, Lindows 4.x) and Windows XP. It does nothing if I use a different profile.

Any idea as when this will be fixed? It's quite bothersome, and like I said, has been around for a long time.

Thanks!
