    I have this problem where my firefox refuses to save my data to a website.

    for example...I log into yahoo mail and tell it to save my username and password for 2 weeks...i exit firefox, come back in a second later and it didn't save any of it. i have to keep logging back in!

    It;s my antivirus or my router, which would make sense to me. I disabled nod32 and it still didn't work, then i disabled my routers internet firewall, it still didn't work.

    My laptop (which uses the same network and antivris) works fine.

    any ideas?

    In Firefox click on Tools and then Options when the window pops up go to the Privacy tab and check your setting for History,Cookies and Private Data you will get all the settings on this one page.

    Delete the shortcut you are using to access Yahoo Mail, and create a new one. That fixed the issue for me in both IE and Firefox.

    Also note that the Info page now says
    "For your security, your Yahoo! Mail session expires a maximum of twenty-four hours after you have logged in"

    I haven't checked to see if it is actually limited to 24 hours, as I rarely use the web interface.
