Firefox won't save preferences or auto login

This is getting annoying.
If I alter the safesearch preferences on google, close firefox and reopen, my selection isn't saved.
Auto logins to web sites don't work. For instance on tek-tips I now get the login prompt when I didn't used to. This happens on every login web site I use.
I've tried rather hard to fix this all to no effect.
System restore
Uninstalled and reinstalled.
Checked and unchecked the accept cookies options.
Deleted a prefs.js and cookies.sqllite

I would really appreciate a fix for this!
