Firefox "cookies" will not work

Firefox "cookies" will not work

For example, after I login to superuser.com, exit the browser, and come back in...no cookies. I cannot save my logins!

"I had the same kind of issues. I turned out the file storing the cookies was ""corrupted"". I remove it and restarted Firefox and it could save the cookies again.

The file is called cookies.sqllite. You'll find it on Vista and Windows 7 at the following location:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>\

On Windows 2000 and XP it's located at:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>\

I removed also the other file cookies.sqllite-journal."
