I had to disable them to log in the forums :-k and that's not very cool because i have a personalized google home page and it needs cookies to remember my login (i also use the remember me feature in the forums, which i can't use with the cookies disabled). Is this temporary or what?

I've moved this to a more appropriate forum. As far as I know, though, you need to enable cookies (not disable them) to log into the forums.

The forums use cookies to keep you logged in. If you disable cookies you should not stay logged in.

Can you try with a different browser and see if you run into the same problem?

Can you try another browser for now--Epiphany or Opera?

Maybe you have corrupted Firefox profile, then?

Try this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=103930&highlight=corrupt+firefox+profile) and see if you have the same problem.
