It's not a Firefox issue, it's an issue with website handing out cookies with unique IDs that don't expire until 2038. *cough*Google*cough*.

Goto Tools/Options/Privacy set it to Accept cookies 'Untill I CLOSE Firefox'....

You can also set other options such as 'Anti Phishing' feature (Under Security), adjust cache sizes etc...

Firefox 2.0.4
