User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) AutoPager/0.5.2.2 (http://www.teesoft.info/)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) AutoPager/0.5.2.2 (http://www.teesoft.info/)

(happens with single and multiple tab sessions)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set preferences to remember history
2. log in to mail.yahoo.com (select "keep me logged in for 2 wks")
3. close browser session (if multiple tabs, select save & quit)
4. return to yahoo mail

Actual Results:  
need to re-enter yahoo id/pwd info

Expected Results:  
login info saved, login page bypassed and browser navigates directly to yahoo mail

what is the point of saving cookies if you need to log on to sites continuously?  this is a major hassle
I tested this with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.2pre) Gecko/20090725 Shiretoko/3.5.2pre and it works fine for me.
