I'm on my own personal computer which no one else uses, so I have it set where all sites I go to auto-saves my passwords and i'm always logged in on them.
Since I've upgraded to Firefox3.0.3 Every time after I restart my computer and open FireFox, all my sites I've logged into have logged me out...
Personally, I hate having to go through the login steps each time I first a site that I have to log into.
I never had a problem when It came to this before, since I upgraded to FireFox3.0.3.
If I just close Firefox and re-open it without restarting, the sites I logged into will still have me logged it, the problem only happens when I restart my Computer.
Either the problem is in the area of the security section, or it's a problem with the recognizing of site cookie data.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log onto site that requires a User/Pass with Firefox.
2. Close Firefox.
3. Restart Computer.
Actual Results:  
4. Open FireFox again.
5. Not logged in anymore on that site I entered the User/Pass

Expected Results:  
Login on site should have been still logged in.

It's not a theme or plugin error, becasue i've disabled all of them and it still does it.
Your version appears wrong, apparently messed up by an addon (probably MEGAUPLOAD). The most consistent part of your user agent suggests you're probably using version 3.0.1 (we have not released a 3.0.3, and even version 3.0.2 is in pre-release beta testing).

From the description it sounds like cookies probably aren't getting saved correctly, possibly some sort of data corruption in the cookie file that happened in the upgrade. Less likely is that the cookies settings were changed to "Keep until I close Firefox" -- you can check that by opening the 
Options dialog from the tool menu and clicking on the Privacy tab.

If it's the setting change it to "Keep until they expire" and you're good to go. If that's not it you're going to need help from tech support to clear the corrupted file -- see the forums at
