On what seems to be a random basis, my Bugzilla login cookies are just remove. I allow them to be saved, and they show an expiration of 2037 or something like that, but a week or two later I have to login again. Looking at the cookie file verifies that the cookies are indeed gone.
try disabling "restrict this session to this IP address" when you login.
Check also the value of the 'rememberlogin' parameter in editparams.cgi. If this parameter is 'off', cookies are deleted every time you log out.
I will try the IP address thing. It didn't occur to me since it says "this session", not forever. I am reporting this against bugzilla.mozilla.org. I do not have the ability to edit any of the CGI.
I tried unchecking the "restrict to this IP" option on the very day it was suggested. Today, when I went to file a new bug report I was asked for my login information. The Bugzilla cookies were gone from the cookies.txt file.
It is because of my IP address. My IP was switched by my ISP last night. So, even with the option unchecked, a different IP will erase login cookies.
Summary: Login Cookies Disappear → Bugzilla Ignores "Restrict this session to this IP address" Option
Summary: Bugzilla Ignores "Restrict this session to this IP address" Option → Change of IP Address Wipes Bugzilla Login Cookie
