View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't get auto login to web sites with Firefox

I visit quite a number of web sites (like this one) that require a login in order to post messages. I cannot get Firefox on Ubuntu to automatically log me in on the 2nd and subsequent visits, although I ask it to do automatic login and remember the password on the first visit. This happens with a freshly installed 10.04 amd64 OS that is updated to current levels. Checking privacy settings in Firefox shows that history should be remembered across sessions. Chrome can manage the auto login without any problem, as can Firefox on Windows with exactly the same privacy settings as Firefox on Ubuntu.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?
