    In the tools > options > privacy > cookies menu I have "accept cookies"
    checked and "keep until they expire" checked so I figure that was a good
    start. The "good" cookies show 'allow' and the ones I don't want show
    'blocked'. Some others are 'allow for session only' but this seemed like a
    good start and the right settings.

    Then I went to the Cookie Culler extension and made sure the cookies I
    wanted to keep were marked "protect" and this is where (I think) the
    problem lies. I check Cookie Culler and sometimes the cookies are still
    protected and other times they have changed to 'unprotect'.

    I am not sure which of the cookie-related options (tools menu or Cookie
    Culler extension) is the one that has the most to do with controlling
    protecting/unprotecting cookies but I have used Cookie Culler for some
    time and this problem has only just recently become a problem.

    Could it be FF ver 1.0.7 that is to blame? Seems the cookie problem wasn't
    a problem before I installed the newest (?) version of FF.

    I am going to uninstall Cookie Culler and see if that makes a difference
    but would be curious to know if the extension I've used for a while or the
    newer version of FF is the culprit...

    Thanks for any help,
